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

Angela with AJ West captured our wedding and it was oh so magical! From the moment I first contacted her I felt at ease in knowing that my at the time fiancé and I were going to be in wonderful hands! She is very organized and great with children! We have a little one so she was able to get lots of smiles from him and our flower girl. She captured all of our special moments and she did so in such a professional and upbeat way! Angela went above and beyond anything I could have ever imaging to get the perfect shots. It was freezing outside for our "first looks" and she was so considerate to make sure I was as comfortable at all times. It shows through her work that she is passionate about what she does and the love she has for her work. I absolutely adore her and loved having her as a photographer and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for gorgeous moments captured whether it be for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, engagement, you name it and she can do it! She is a total sweetheart and I could not have imagined working with anyone anymore perfect for our special day! A huge beyond words thank you Angela from Abbey, John and Jacob!Sent on 03/24/2016

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!
