I’m Andrea Schroeder mom, wife, and lover of livestock. Don't be scared if you see a livestock show and pigs on my social media. However- that’s not why you’re here. You’re probably wondering more about Avenue A. The first question is always "How'd you get into photography?" To put it simply - I've always had a camera in my hands. In fact - I can remember the exact spot on my parent's farm where I took my first photo. My mom has a servants heart, and is well known in my little home town for always taking pictures of the high school sporting events and county fair. Naturally, when she was doing Mom things, I picked up the camera and filled in.
I spent a long time resisting the comments from friends and family telling me to open my own photography business, but despite my resistance, the road of life led me to Avenue A. As you know, an Avenue is a broad road in a town or city, typically having trees at regular intervals along its sides. Many of my favorite images are from stops along tree lined roads across the country. In fact - don't be surprised if I find a random spot to stop with your bridal party! I'm also a sentimental person, and as such, I LOVE nothing more than hearing about the earrings that were your grandmas, or the cufflinks passed down for generations that your husband is wearing.
My journey as a photographer has taken me many different places, and I can’t wait to see where it continues to lead me. Whether your wedding is in your hometown, your favorite vacation spot or the city you just moved to, I can't wait for our paths to cross.
