About Ken Cravillion
Let's see... I existed in May of 1979. I started photographing things when I was about 12 years old with my mom's old Minolta manual focus camera. Later on I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography (and a minor in geography... I like maps). I photographed my first wedding back in 2005. Since then I have photographed 400+ more. In between those weddings I like to photograph birds and landscapes. It has taken me from the Pacific coast to the mountains of Tennessee to the deserts of northern Arizona and Utah as well as overseas to the wonderful country of Iceland. The places you will most likely find me are along the shores of Lake Superior from Minnesota and Wisconsin to Upper Michigan.
On a more personal note, I have two beautiful daughters and a wonderfully patient wife of going on 17 years. In August of 2007 I left my previous job at Camera Casino camera store after 8 years and went full time into wedding photography. I timed that move with the birth of our first girl, Maddy. Two and a half years later Aurora (named after the aurora borealis or northern lights) came into our world.
Other than photography I have interests in running, cycling, hiking, camping, geography and geology. I love searching out cool and interesting rocks along my travels. Every Sunday if I'm not out shooting I'll likely be watching Formula 1, NASCAR, sports cars or whatever. Race cars are cool. If you give hints about an interest in racing or running at our wedding meeting we may talk more about that than your wedding. It's happened a few times.
