Audrey Wancket
Master Photographer,
Certified Professional

Audrey Wancket, celebrating her 25th year as a photographic portrait artist, continues to create portraits of excellence that hang in the finest homes across the United States. Inspired by the "Old Master Painters", combined with a strong academic background in fine art, Audrey has brought to her photography a timeless beauty. Her desire is to capture and preserve a moment of human emotion, be it tenderness, beauty, love or youthful innocence. In the modern world of art, there is no medium that so effectively captures and portrays these emotions as photography. An artist in every meaning, she is driven by creativity, inspired by her subjects and relentless in search of excellence. With sensitivity and patience, Audrey works with each subject to reveal their personality, beauty and dignity. Signed simply, "Wancket", her signature has become known as the mark of classic elegance.


Eleven acres of wooded forest and hills provide a perfect setting for inspiration. The studio, housed in a restored barn, offers a peaceful retreat for our clients. Portraits of all sizes and styles are displayed throughout our frame galley. The collection of beautiful backdrops and elegant furnishings add a unique charm to the barn.
