Butch has been photographing a dog’s personality since 2004, and he travels all over the country to find them! Photographing dogs started for Butch after some encouragement from his Mom to set-up at his first dog show in Louisville, KY. Being around everything 'dogs' has been a part of Butch's upbringing, as his Dad built a career on drawing caricatures of every breed imaginable and setting up at dog shows across the country.

Today, Butch and his wife Kelsy make their living with their cameras. Together they are wedding & portrait photographers, and Butch continues to photograph dogs both in their studio in charming downtown Wausau, WI as well at dog shows and pet shops across the county.

Behind the Scenes

We documented a little bit of our 15th year taking dog portraits at the Kentuckiana Cluster of Dog Shows. It's a whirlwind trip, and typically between 50 and 70 dogs come in to our little studio to have their picture taken. We hope you enjoy!
