HELLO! I’M ANNA, AND I’M GLAD YOU’RE HERE.
My name is Anna Barker, and I'm a Personal Brand and Wedding Photographer from Fort Wayne, Indiana.
When I’m behind the camera, my goal is to bring out the most joyful and authentic version of someone so that when they go to look back at their photos – a day, month, or decade later – they’ll feel like they are a beautiful, true reflection of who they are as a person.
How did I get started in all this, you might ask? I got my first disposable film camera when I was 7, and from that moment I was kinda hooked.
I’ve learned some things since then and had the privilege of being asked to photograph my first wedding in 2015. Things sort of snowballed from there and, I ended up dropping out of the college graphic design program I was in to build my photography business and I’ve never regretted it! I love being able to run my own business (even if wearing all the different hats is also one of the hardest things I’ve ever done). Giving people a tangible representation of the moments, people, and things they hold most precious in life…that’s where it’s at!
When I’m not taking photographs, I’m usually hanging out with my 4 year old playing some type of pretending game, building legos, or getting him snacks. I know I’m biased, but I think he’s the bomb and I love being his mom…even if it does mean watching copious amounts of cartoons. (Low key, I’m not mad about it.)
I’m constantly inspired and blessed by the fact that I get to work with some incredibly cool people as a photographer and that I get to hear their stories and create personalized photos that put the spotlight on the things that mean the most to them. I would love to share your story, so come say hi!
