chasing the joy

through every chapter of your love story

Wisconsin wedding + family photographer

Nobody knows how to pronounce my last name. Repeat after me... GOO-ter-MOO-th. Now that we have that covered — Hey, girl, hey! I'm Anna, and photography is my dream job.

Everyday magic is my love language. Pink skies, a good cup of coffee, forehead kisses, and a little bit of glitter make my heart sing. Since 2018, I have been telling your stories with intention and finding the magic in your everyday moments.

When I first picked up a camera in high school, I never in my wildest dreams ever thought it would lead me here. People often refer to me as the girl who self-proclaimed she had a camera permanently attached to her hand when she was sixteen. I guess it kinda stuck!

I photograph families who are yearning for authentic photos to tell their story. Families that are totally into the little things, the details, the magic that shows through in your everyday life. The way your person's eyes light up when they see you from across the room. The deep belly laughter that comes from your favorite inside joke. Feeling your baby's heartbeat against your own, snuggling with your kiddos and playing with them, letting your true selves shine through will be your legacy.

I feel so lucky to capture you and your favorite people through the biggest and the most mundane moments of your life. Telling your story through photos that you will pass down to your kids and your grandkids after that is the greatest gift.

I'm Anna gutermuth
and chasing the joy is how i love my life.

welcome to my corner of the internet

One of my personal mottos is Nervous Means Do It, and this year we are doing the dang thing!


The art of the hustle became the name of the game, balancing a part time job in addition to being your friendly neighborhood photog.


One word. PIVOT. Photographed nine weddings during a global pandemic and learned to just roll with the punches on the fly.


Dove headfirst into education from some of my favorite photographers and spent that whole year growing and learning in my craft.


Dusted off that old photography dream of mine from high school and decided that I was going to go for it — for real this time.

We might be a perfect fit if

You've watched Grey's Anatomy a time or two (or ten, there's no judgement here!)

You and your cutie want lifestyle documentary photos full of emotion to tell your story on your wedding day

You haven't been in front of the camera before — or the last time was for your senior photos. Bring your awkward self and we'll make magic together, I promise.

You love the little things in life.

Your morning coffee is the most important part of your day.

You love thrifting and hunting for good vintage home decor.

When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me squirreled away in the editing cave, aka my office that I have filled with thrifted treasures and sentimental magic. There's a good chance I am curled up under a blanket, drinking an oat milk latte and watching Grey's Anatomy while I work on your photos.

If you're dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me...

My love of wedding photography comes from staring at my great-grandparents wedding portrait that used to hang in my grandma's house when I was growing up. They were married in 1918(!!) and their portrait is still in the original oval convex glass frame.

I am a NICU graduate! I was born at 27 weeks in 1992 and was in the hospital for two months and ten days after I was born. I was only 2 lbs. and my dad could hold me in the palm of his hand! I also have a metal clip holding the PDA valve in my heart closed due to being born so premature.

Chocolate and peanut butter is my ultimate candy combo. Peanut butter M&Ms are my favorite.

I met my boyfriend Justin on eHarmony in 2012. We did long distance for six months, I moved in with him in 2013, and the rest is history!

I collect vintage film cameras, Converse All-Stars, and cute coffee mugs.

there is nothing i love more than sipping coffee under a cozy blanket.
