Anne Brande

Owner/Photographer

Hi, my name is Anne and I’m a fourth-generation portrait artist born and raised in Wyoming. For me wide-open spaces, incredible skies, amazing mountains, and living in a small town are essential—like breathing. Running a successful fourth-generation photography business has blessed me with rich relationships that span multiple generations. I truly believe in the Cowboy ethic. You’re only as good as your word and a handshake is good as gold. Just like my parents, grandparents, and great grandparents before me, I proudly give a lifetime guarantee and a money-back guarantee on all my photographic art. It was at the University of Wyoming I fell in love with an adventure seeker like me from Oslo, Norway. And it is then that my life story really began. Long before destination weddings were in vogue, we had an incredible storybook wedding in the king’s church Ris in Oslo. Together we have made Laramie our home now for over 23 years. We have three beautiful children ages 6 to 15. Family history and a sense of place are as dear to our hearts as the Great Outdoors. My 125-year-old Victorian home is 6 blocks from my Art Deco studio built in 1925 in downtown Laramie. In my free time you will find me after a day of skiing, baking a soufflé to be enjoyed with the perfect red wine or fixing fence at our ranch in nearby Virginia Dale, Colorado. Our family travels to Norway frequently because, as my husband told me years ago, Norway is a lot like Wyoming—beautiful, rustic, full of adventure, and as genuine as it comes. In my heart life is truly about the ones you love. Capturing the “magic” in your everyday life is what I am PASSIONATE about. I have traveled to faraway places, too many to list, to capture moments, too precious to lose, to memory alone. I held my first camera at age 4 and was processing and printing my own film by age 8. Film taught me to get it right the first time while the moment and the expressions are fresh. Your life is beautiful and I find great joy telling your story and those you love through portrait photography. When you look back at your photographs someday, I want you to remember the way you felt at that time of your life—beautiful, on top of the world, surrounded by those you love, full of life… a timeless story so that every time you walk by, you and those you love will relive that very moment.aw biscuit.
