Testimonials

“I absolutely loved working with Angela! She was our wedding photographer, and she did a wonderful job of capturing personalities and emotions on our big day. She is organized, professional, and kept my husband and I on time throughout the day. She is one of the most personable people I have ever known, and I so enjoy her smile, warm energy, and creative talents. She is simply a delight!”

Dear Angela,

Dave and I spent yesterday evening looking at your photos, and … WOW!! You did such an amazing job of capturing the feeling of the event. It was like experiencing that joyful weekend a second time! Thank you for everything you did to produce those beautiful images. There are so many perfect photos that I am really not sure how we’ll decide which ones to frame — so many wonderful shots of people’s expressions, so many beautiful compositions, so many that captured some aspect of the wedding that we really loved.

Thank you again for doing such a beautiful job on this. It’s been such a pleasure working with you, from start to finish!

Yours,

Anna and Dave, Oak Ridge, North Carolina, family homestead wedding

Hi Angela,

Matt and I are back from our honeymoon we want to say thank you for photographing our wedding. We really enjoyed having you there with us to capture our day! It all went so quickly and it was so helpful and reassuring that you were so organized and attentive. We can’t wait to see your work!

Thanks again!
Cheers,
Jen and Matt, Ballantyne Country Club Wedding in Charlotte

Hi Angela,

Wow! Have I mentioned that I am so so so excited about our wedding photos! You’ve really given me a new opportunity to be totally unproductive at work! Thank you, thank you, thank you for just absolutely blowing our expectations out of the water! Matt and I are so excited to start picking our favorites. At this point I am still just sort of obsessively delighting in looking at every image (which took me about three hours yesterday morning :)).

I have to tell you, my mom and I argued quite a bit about what I was willing to invest in our wedding photography. However, now that she has seen the results, she is singing a different tune. I think you have convinced her that you are worth the investment!

Again, thanks so much! You’ve really given us such a gift with your work!

Hi Angela,

I am just writing to thank you for the amazing pictures of our wedding. Your work is unbelievable and Kija and I could not be happier with the results. Your ability to capture each moment and produce such powerful images is unparalleled. When we were watching the slide presentation it made me feel like I was reliving that day. I am confident in saying that hiring you as our photographer was the best decision we made about our wedding.

I will definitely recommend you to all my friends that get married from now on and I hope that we can work with you again in the future.

Thank you!

Hi Angela,

I hope everything is going well with you. Everything has been so busy after the wedding. I can’t believe I’m just now getting around to emailing you. We wanted to thank you for photographing our wedding, helping to keep us on schedule and everything else you did to make the occasion fabulous. We cannot wait to see the photographs that you took and relive the moments that you were able to capture. You did an amazing job by always being nearby if there was a specific item/event we wanted captured, but at the same time you were never intrusive and allowed everything to naturally unfold. Thank you so much.

Robyn Blanton Owens, Biltmore Estate Wedding

After spending two evenings glued to our laptop staring at the most amazing pictures of ourselves, not only do we feel like the vainest couple in the world, but we’re still at a loss for words. Your photos are more beautiful and touching that anything we could have imagined, and we can’t even being to thank you. Every photo we view incites memories and we’ve been touched to the point of laughter and tears. Our wedding was a wonderful day filled with memories, but I had no idea that the images you captured would help us vividly relive not only the events of the day but also the emotions of the day. The photos you took were perfect and blew any expectations we had out of the water. Thank you so much.

On Angela’s website she states that her style is “to be sensitive to the many subtleties, details and monumental moments of emotion of your day while capturing images that have maximum impact.” This statement could not be more truthful. Her work is stunning, awe-inspiring and seems to captures each moment not as a photograph taken in the moment, as a bystander, but as a transference of a memory captured in first person perspective to paper . From the moment my husband and I met with Angela she was professional, artistically gifted and caring. She gave us the sense that she was genuinely interested in our event, not only as a perspective business venture, but as someone who took delight in our delight and would handle the occasion as if it was her own venue, and did. To stress again the work, it is phenomenal… stunning… breathtaking! I cannot give higher regards or recommendation for this artist and her craft.

Dear Angela,

I have been meaning to write and tell you how pleased we were with Carolyn and Kevin’s wedding photographs. They are exquisite. Carolyn and Kevin look so joyful! Viewing them made us feel as if we were reliving the event all over again and having worked with photographers, I so appreciate your artistic approach and detail. I especially marveled at how you made the church look good! Alexa (the bride’s sister) described our family picture when she viewed it as the “family photo of our dreams.”

Thank you for using your talent to capture Carolyn and Kevin’s big day!

Hey Angela!
I just got back from lunch and was going to email you. I have to tell you this. I have known my husband for 23 years, and I have only seen him cry once in the entire time I have known him. At work yesterday, he could not figure out how to do the slide show, music, etc. to view the engagement photos. So after dinner last night, I took him to the computer, started the music and began the slide show for him. A minute or so into it, I looked over at him and his eyes were brimming with tears. I asked him if he was okay, and the tears started flowing down his face. He couldn’t even speak. He cried through the entire slide show. He said afterwards that Tara looked so happy, and that pleased him so much. Your photos captured that for him, and I am incredibly grateful to you for that.

Angela,

I am struggling to find the words to express to you how much I cherish every photo of Tara and Clff’s wedding. They are just amazing and everything I hoped they would be….and more!

As I look at the photos, I see in them a lifetime of love shared between family and friends. But what is most evident to me that day is that Tara went from one man who has loved her from the day he met her, to another who feels the same. And as her mother, that is an incredible feeling…one that brings me great joy! Those pictures will speak to Tara throughout her life, and she will always be reminded of how very much she is loved.

Thank you for capturing not just a day in time, but love that has stood the test of time and carries into the future.

Sincerely,

Jodie Razdrh
Tara’s Mom

Angela,
Thank you so much for the pictures! I LOVE them!!! You did such a wonderful job, Cliff and I couldn’t be happier. My mom was in tears when she saw them. I can’t stop going and looking at them :-)
I will let you know what we decide for the guest book.

Again, thank you so much for everything! I can’t wait until the wedding!!!

-Tara Massie, on her Asheville Engagement Portraits

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our pics! Everyone loves them and I am having a hard time figuring out which would be my favorite. I LOVE them all!! We can’t wait until the wedding to see your pics from that day. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks…

Cliff Massie, on his Asheville Engagement Portraits

Angela,
I took a quick glimpse at them and they are so perfect!!! They are above and beyond my expectations (which were quite high). We are taking you up on your offer and sitting down with a bottle of wine tonight to enjoy them fully together.Thank you so much, it was wonderful working with you. I could not imagine having put our day in more capable and loving hands. I am glad that you enjoyed our family and much as we enjoyed working with you. Again, thank you so much, it was a joy!!!

Love,
Tara Massie, Asheville Wedding

Upon closer inspection I was able to see the tears in those pictures…I can’t not even describe what your work has meant to me. Each picture has something I cherish in it and I never grow tired of looking at them. Your work is amazing and it was such a pleasure working with you.
Warmly,
Tara Massie, Asheville Wedding

Hi Angela,
Thank you soo much.

I’ve been looking at them again and again and then stepped back today and looked at them as a whole, and they are stunning. After sending our wedding party the password to view them, here is what my sister-in-law and bridesmaid wrote back to me: “wow lee, they are gorgeous!!!! words really can’t express how amazing these are…”

I chose you to photograph this special time in our lives because of your artistry. I know that you do a lot of retouching work afterwards, and I greatly appreciate that fact about you—that it’s not just what you capture raw, but the many hours of work you do to each file afterwards. (I’m aware that you probably moved my eyes in some of the photos and smoothed out wrinkles and creases :) — and I appreciate it!)

I spent the most money during the wedding on the photography, because I knew that after those few hours, it’s the photographs that will remain and sustain the memories of our special day. And as an artist, I wanted a photographer who I consider to be an artist as well—which you definitely are! :) So you’re selections are not going to be taken with a grain of salt. My faves are the ones that are the most artistic in formal qualities as well as feeling and I have a feeling that that is what you base your favorites on as well. I love the “quirkyness” that comes from the photos such as Jennifer applying my lipstick or Jodi standing there looking into the camera while holding my train as Stacy and I kiss in the foreground. Awesome shots and there are SO many more.

It’s hard to capture a full view of the chapel very well when so close to it, so you chose a different route with the fisheye view lens. Is that the first time you’ve used that lens for a wedding? It was a really creative solution to the problem of seeing more of the chapel and also the circular area in Duke Gardens.

You don’t know how thrilled I was to see that you had taken more photos at the reception than I thought. I love that you got the (half-eaten :) doughnut cake, my little niece (who had been asleep during the wedding and formal portraits), the tin with the daisies and my mother in the mirror.

Oh and I also wanted to thank you for the great job you did with the lighting in the chapel. I remember I told you my concern that it could be pretty dark, and instead your photos look filled with light (almost a spiritual kind of light).

So THANK YOU!! :))))

You are just an amazing photographer and artist, and I’m so happy to have chosen YOU!

Best,
Lee Nisbet, Duke Chapel Wedding

“We feel very lucky to have had Angela photograph our wedding. The pictures are beautiful. Absolute works of art! Not only is she talented, but she is honestly one of the nicest people we have ever met. Angela was pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with her again in the future.”

“My husband and I were married at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale, Arizona on August 6th, 2005. It was a second marriage for both of us, therefore, we didn’t want the traditional photos. Angela was remarkable with her suggestions, finesse, and creativity. She gave us exactly what we requested and more. Our pictures are unique, photo-journalistic. I recommend Angela for any venue, she listens and gives you want you want. A plus to any occassion.”

Melissa Rupoli, Four Seasons Wedding in Scottsdale
