I’m Angelina, but usually its just Angie or Ange.
Some little tidbits about me. I swim competitively on a regular basis. Typically the IM, which ironically, I use to hate. I have two amazing dogs that I love to pieces, Charlie and Rufus. One is a bit neurotic and barks too much. The other is a magnificent cuddler but also a walking tumble weed, picture Pig Pen from Charlie Brown except instead of dirt wisping around its fur. I’m married to a wonderful person and we love hosting family over. Im highly food motivated. Dangle a fancy pastry, chocolate or a bourbon something in front of me and you’ll be surprised at the feats I can accomplish. I travel whenever possible and it is usually scheduled around my food choices. Thus far, my favorite country is France and my French is TERRIBLE, but I get by. I harbor a healthy obsession with carrot cake and I can be a little geeky at times. Once upon a time, I use to be a biologist, molecular diagnostics and pharmaceuticals to be exact!
How does photography and weddings play into this?
When I was young I spent most of my time at college. My mom would pack me up (along with all her art supplies) and tote me around to all her fine art classes. It was the only time I ever sat still. Watching an artist work was incredible. It is where I was introduced to light, composition, and an artist’s vision.
My exposure to art set the wheels of creativity in motion and led me to here. It also helped form how I document weddings. This is where I begin with you – documenting the unscripted tender moments and real emotion. Sometimes, its the unexpected seconds that can become the most beautiful memories. When two people come together and promise to share all that they are with who they love – it is a truly amazing gift.
Whether your wedding is a small elopement at city hall or a 250 person urban affair, I strive for raw, honest, and emotional images that showcase the connection between the two of you and the love you share for your friends and family.
From our first meeting, I want you to feel relaxed and stress free. Kick up your feet and tell me your story. I observe my couples interacting and translate their passion and love frame by frame. In the end, your memories are preserved works of art, ready to be gathered together in an album or hung on your walls.
I look forward to hearing from you!
