Scott and Cathy are true artists that take the most amazing photographs. Most importantly, they are an amazing couple that operates on integrity, and kindness. The synergy that they have is great together; they come up with the most creative, and innovative ideas for one-of-a-kind photos. Their technology is new, and cutting-edge and they are the ones that all other photographers aspire to be. The level of commitment and service they provide is exemplary. Without a doubt, the amount of experience that they have shows not only in the pictures, but in the advice that they give you throughout the day as well. They really know how to put someone at ease to make them look, and feel great guaranteeing the best pictures possible. I would recommend Ambiance Studios to anyone in a heartbeat– Ryan and I are more than pleased with our wedding photos.

Scott and Cathy were amazing to work with. I first met them at the Washington County bridal fair and from that moment on I was in love with their work. From day one they were so helpful and genuinely cared about mine and Ryan’s big day. They offered up any help they could. I would definitely recommend them for your photography needs.

I am not from Wisconsin and I was the most nervous about picking my photographer for my wedding out of all of my vendors. Ambiance Studios was the first photographers that I found and met with and I absolutely LOVE them and I immediately wanted to pick them, however I knew I needed to be smart and still look around and interview other photographers. Everyone else I met with were just blah, nothing exciting, nothing stood out about them, they didn’t seem to love their work like Scott and Cathy. We decided that there is no one else like Scott and Cathy so we picked them and never looked back! I had such a blast with them at my wedding and they captured absolutely everything! I have so much to pick from and such a beautiful selection of pictures, it is actually going to be hard to choose my photos for my album because they did such a spectacular job! I have received so many compliments on how great and fun Scott and Cathy were at the wedding, my photos after they were edited and the pictures that were shown at the wedding that weren’t edited were beautiful. I am still receiving compliments and guest are still bring up Scott and Cathy when they talk about my wedding. Out of all my vendors Scott and Cathy were by far my best choice! If you aren’t sold yet, let me tell you, STOP looking else where, the people to capture your special day is Scott and Cathy!! They are definitely THE BEST!

Scott and Cathy were absolutely amazing on our special day. They did everything they could to help make our day perfect and go as smoothly as possible. They take absolutely stunning photographs and are quick to get a few posted so you have some to share. They are such a fun, energetic and kind couple. We would recommend them to anyone!

Scott and Cathy were amazing. They kept me grounded when I was feeling overwhelmed and they made sure to capture all the moments that I was afraid would be missed. They were complimentary to all details of my wedding. The pictures turned out beautiful and I am so thankful that I chose to go with them! Thank you!

Ambiance Studios was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. They are professional, creative, and sincerely care about making your wedding day special. They are the best at what they do, and the proof is in their past photos. They are not afraid to step outside the box creatively, but yet they still capture the true romance in every photo, without exception.

My daughter, Bianca, and I were searching for a photographer to take pictures for her Quinceañera (our tradition of a Sweet ‘15’). We met Scott and Cathy of Ambiance Studios at the Wonderful World of Weddings Exposition Center at Wisconsin State Fair Park. From the moment we saw their work and the Custom Designed Italian Fine Art Books my daughter said, “Mom, this is the album I want and these are the photographers I want for my Quinceañera.” The rest, as they say, is history. Scott and Cathy were an amazing team. They were very enthusiastic and fun. In the past I have had bad experiences getting in touch with vendors after booking them, but thankfully this was not the case with Ambiance Studios. They answered my questions throughout the whole process in a timely manner. Their creativeness and expertise were evident in the pictures they took and our guests loved being able to view the pictures during the event. I am so grateful for their patience during the book design process. They had so many great pictures to choose from that it was difficult for me to narrow down the pictures. Cathy was wonderful at helping me with this. She provided suggestions, tips, a different perspective and the guidance I needed to design my daughter’s custom book. Bianca and I both loved the preview of the book and cannot wait to see the actual album. I definitely would not hesitate to recommend Ambiance Studios by Scott & Cathy Erickson for your next event!
