The Photographers


Kris Ugarriza

(Lead Photographer, Manager, Photo Editor)
Madison, Wisconsin
Boulder, Colorado

I have been a photographer ever since I can remember. As a child, I would take my mother's Pentax SLR from her bedroom and play with it, to the horror of my mother, who was also a photojournalist. 

My work reflects my affection for creating images by shaping natural and artificial light as well as capturing meaningful moments in film. I take this approach to every type of photography I do, be it Wedding, Portrait, Commercial or Editorial. Photography has opened my eyes to a new world of colors, light, people and emotion.

During my college years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I worked at the Daily Cardinal and Badger Herald, the school newspapers, as a photographer. After graduating, I interned as a photographer at the Wisconsin State Journal and I have been freelancing as a Photojournalist since then. My work has been published in several publications such as the Wisconsin State Journal, The Capital Times, Madison Magazine, Milwaukee Magazine, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The Star Tribune, and many others. I have also received several awards for my Editorial and Wedding Photography.

I am an avid Rock Climber, Backpacker, Mountain Biker, and dog lover. Every year, I travel on my off season with my dog, Kyra, who keeps me safe, around the US, Canada, and Mexico. I love the outdoors and I constantly find peace and inspiration in nature.

I currently live in Boulder, CO, and am the main photographer for weddings in Colorado and surrounding areas.


Matt Wisniewski

Madison, Wisconsin


My name is Matthew, and I love telling stories. I’ve been infatuated with storytelling since I was a kid. I used to dream up superhero stories to draw for friends and family. When I got to high school I used writing to satisfy my storytelling need. And then I picked up a camera. Photography led me to photojournalism where I developed my style interning with several publications in southern Wisconsin including the Wisconsin State Journal, the Janesville Gazette, and Madison Magazine.

I picked up photography to tell stories for people. I live for the personality, emotions, and moments I can capture in photographs and video that would otherwise be quickly forgotten.

I recently won the 2008 Wisconsin News Photographers Association’s College Photographer of the Year Award. Check out my blog to see what I’m doing, and photos from recent shoots.

I'd love you to be part of my story.
