There are not quite enough words to express my finance's and my gratitude toward Angela, our beautiful and amazing photographer. She has been one of the only vendors throughout this entire wedding planning process that we have come to love and trust completely. Not only is Angela working with us on our limited wedding budget (which most other vendors laughed at and turned away from), but she also just goes above and beyond to capture the love that we want to share with our family and friends. For our engagement shoot, we went to our wedding planner's stunning property. It was raining in the beginning and we had to walk through some extra tall grass, work around bugs, and attempt to beat the heat. She did all of that with a smile and humor that kept us laughing the whole time. She even took us up on to some extremely rough terrain in her brand new car all to capture some gorgeous sunset shots on a rocky hill. We went well over our time with her but not once did she act like we were impinging on her time. She was extremely kind, professional, encouraging, and loving - we felt comfortable with her immediately. We feel like Angela is a part of our little family, someone we trust entirely to capture our wedding day exactly as we have in mind. She listens, she is extremely detail oriented and well-organized, and is beyond timely. She told us to expect our engagement pictures back in 2-4 weeks and we received all of them four days later!!! We could not have gotten luckier with Angela and feel truly blessed to have her along for the ride throughout this amazing process with us. Stop your search and choose Angela, you will not regret it!Sent on 09/16/2015

May 18 2019 Wedding
Angela did such a wonderful job for my wedding on May 18th, 2019 in Grand Rapids, MI. She was professional and attentive, always putting the needs of the bride, groom, and their families first. After the ceremony, we drove around some of our (mine & my husband's) favorite places in Grand Rapids. We knew where we wanted to go, and Angela brought her creativity and vision to make these shots even more special. Even when we ran out of places to go to, Angela came up with some last minute brilliant shots outside our reception venue.Sent on 05/22/2019
Angela was also very flexible and patient throughout the day. We developed a schedule of where and what shots we wanted for our wedding. However some things change throughout the day and Angela can ride those waves with you! She was able to make us laugh and give us the direction we needed for our pictures. She is not the bossy type and will not disturb you while you're enjoying the special moments of your day.
I would highly recommend Angela as she was very easy and enjoyable to work with!

Angela was very friendly and easy to work with. My fiance had no problems when scheduling our engagement session, and we were VERY pleased when we got to see the pictures! I normally don't like to get my picture taken, but Angela's easy-going style made it a breeze. I would recommend Angela to anyone that's looking for great pictures, friendly service and reliability.Sent on 09/17/2015

Love their work!!!
Angela is so sweet and will capture your day beautifully and naturally!
Angela was so wonderful to work with. We met when she came to our property to shoot engagement photos for one of our upcoming wedding couples. We have had many photo shoots at our site, but I was amazed at her unique use of backgrounds and her incredibly individual approach to this shoot. She perfectly captured everything that sets this couple apart. I am looking forward to working with her at the wedding and can't wait to see those photos too!
