When Wanda visits her Amish friends, she finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties. Wanda enjoys photography, ventriloquism, gardening, bird-watching, beachcombing, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Richard, have been blessed with two grown children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Richard Brunstetter became interested in photography when he studied with his father-in-law, a professional photographer. After Richard's wife, Wanda, began writing about the Amish, it was only natural that he would use his talent in photography to capture the Amish way of life.
He and Wanda often visit in Amish communities around the country. Richard's love and respect for the Amish way of life is conveyed in his beautiful photographs.
