of It is often said “To learn of the person is to know the person”…so let me begin with telling our story.
Aimee Reese owner and founder of AnR Travel & Photography aka; the Traveling Photographer, and her husband Ron
Reese, started in the travel industry to lighten the load of
the endless hours needed to plan that perfect vacation.
Many people today hold a list of dream vacations such as Hawaii, Spain or some other far-off exotic place. There is so much that the world has to offer or has yet to be seen; Ron and Aimee want to help their clientele bring those dream vacations to reality. It is said that Aimee and her husband Ron, enjoy a good adventure and relish in the unforeseen moments. Due to their own interests and learning experiences through traveling; Ron and Aimee quickly discovered the value and understand the importance that these dream lists hold. Helping their clients to achieve these goals in life is important to them as both of them know how challenging it can be to plan that perfect vacation. Planning goes beyond the standard 'typing in your name" and all the relevant needed information to book flights'. It's so much more- knowing how to travel, what to pack, where to go or who to call if something goes wrong. Booking through online portals such as Price Line may offer a discounted rate; sure. However when things go south and often they do, online booking platforms only give you a 800 number to call. From which, you then sit on hold and get tossed around from one agent to the next because none of them know who you are, your history or even your needs. Half the time the agent is just reading the information you typed in. With Ron and Aimee they offer you a personalized service. Should you need assistance, both are only but a phone call away. These two stay in contact with their clients through the entire travel experience. Aimee or Ron either send texts or call to assure that their client(s) has arrived without complications, need any assistance or anything at all.
Since Aimee was a young child, she has traveled to many places (more local within the U.S.), due to her mother's career with Fred Astaire Dance Studio. But, now that her and husband's children are grown and building lives of their own, Aimee and Ron began their travels internationally and started checking off their own list of places to go. " The world is amazing and there is so much that has yet to be seen" Aimee stated.
After one of Aimee and Ron's many adventures along with a few new discoveries, both began thinking; that if they had a list of 'must see' places then others just like them have a list as well. So, Aimee dove in, got her certification in the travel industry and is now a Certified Travel Agent through Evolution Travel powered by Archer Travel. This, allowing her and husband to begin accommodating their clientele's travel needs; must do vacations and bring them to reality. Helping their clients to check these items off of their 'must see' places; Big or Small. AnR has all the avenues covered; even the photographer aspect to remember those special moments whether it be for business or personal.

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”
— Irving Penn
Aimee Reese: A natural light photographer with a unique style and a love for candid captures. “I did not find photography; Photography found me”. Inspired by her family, with time against, her she utilized imagery to freeze these moments in her life. From there Aimee became fascinated with digital imagery and the notation that every picture should tell a story. Using her creativity to explore the human condition and the world around her, she continuously found herself fascinated by the power of images and their ability, if done properly, to convey an emotion. This is where Aimee learned to tell her clientele’s stories; through imagery.
Aimee sought out her degree through the Academy of Art University and has been photographing for more than ten (10) years. She is a member of the PPA: Professional Photographers of America. Aimee's working preferences are towards the more traditional processes with a fondness of black and white photography utilizing natural lighting.

however through imagery, we can freeze it to have forever"
