Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. Aaron Siskind

Why I'm passionate about doing photography in La Crosse, WI and traveling the world

As a senior in college, I studied abroad in London and stumbled upon photography with no artistic talent whatsoever up to that point.  I’ve since visited 13 countries and developed a love for travel photography and a keen eye for light and architectural beauty.

While training in Emergency Medicine at Mayo Clinic, I was awestruck with how one of my surgical attendings was able to capture his family with the same sense of elegance through light and shadow that I could do with a sunrise in Italy. This admiration sent me on a quest to learn lighting to create amazing photos of our young children that would be much more than snapshots.

Starting J.L. Wiswell Photography in La Crosse grew out of this passion. As a physician, I have limited time, so my objective is to make each session personally tailored to you and your family.  

My ultimate goal is to give you amazing images that will make you do a double-take each time you walk by them.

I want to give you an investment that will grow in your heart over time.
