About Us

Our Style is simple and organic. We come in as observers and capture your passion in all its glory. We don’t take cookie cutter, must have wedding photos; we witness your LOVE and two families coming together; because you allow us this; we make ART.

My name is Anne Brande and as a fourth generation portrait photographer it’s important to maintain the highest quality in everything that we do. Our images are not delivered on a Digital CD. We believe in physical photographs that our clients can hold and cherish for the rest of their lives without going through the "My CD won't work and my Family photographs are gone. Can you save them?" question. The answer is "NO we can not".  Our weddings are displayed in beautiful leather bound albums. We want to capture your entire story in a simple and organic way from the rehearsal to the very last dance on your wedding night. We do not set a time limit on our wedding coverage because we know how important it is to our couples to capture the little moments that mean the most.

We offer a one-hundred-percent “If you’re not THRILLED” money-back guarantee, as well as offering a lifetime guarantee on all our photographs. We want you to LOVE your images we create for you.


Our studio's story began in 1905 when my great grandfather Henning Svenson stepped off the train inbound from New York City. Laramie and it's Wild West qualities was exactly what Henning was after. He set up shop in Downtown Laramie and began documenting the people, culture and Industrial hub that the booming Gem City had to offer. Ludwig Photography is among the longest lasting operating photography studios in the United States.

The Ludwig/Svenson Photography Collection is housed at the University of Wyoming's American Heritage Center and has been appraised an nearly 3 Million Dollars. Every fifteen years we transfer our photography files directly to the collection for its preservation and eternity. 

It is an absolute honor to follow in my families footsteps and be able to serve South East Wyoming for over a Century!
