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
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.
Robyn Blanton Owens, Biltmore Estate Wedding
"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!"
~Ann Whitaker Thompson, Biltmore Estate Wedding
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!
~Anna and Dave, Oak Ridge, North Carolina, family homestead wedding
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!
~Jennifer O’Malley, Ballantyne Country Club Wedding
Oh my Gosh I love them! I literally have done nothing at work today but look at these pictures! They exceeded my expectations, which were very high! They are absolutely unbelievable!! I love them! You did a fabulous job. I can't wait to get home to look at them some more. Thank you for all of your hard work. You can really tell that you put everything into these images.
I will let you know what we decide to pick as soon as Jamie and I have a chance to sit down and discuss the options.
Again, thank you for doing such an unbelievable job! Yeah! I love them all!
Thank you and I look forward to talking to you soon,
~Lori Musser, St. Maartin Wedding
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.
~Daniel Abrahao, Key West Wedding
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.
~Jeff & Crystal, Virginia Wedding
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.
I will be in touch very soon. We have decided to purchase several of these photos to be displayed on the fireplace mantle and sitting area at the reception. As soon as I know what sizes I need, I will be in touch.
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.
~Jen and Lewis
I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart (and Barr's too!) for everything 2 weeks ago. You were so professional, plus it was such fun to see you and your sister work together - you can definitely tell you're close :)
I can't wait to see the final products, but that notwithstanding, I wanted to make sure your got the sincere thanks you deserve.
THANK YOU THANK YOU :)
All the best,
~Abby Blanton, Biltmore Estate Wedding
We are absolutely thrilled with our photos! Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job! I was sneaking peeks at them all day at work! Of course, since there are so many, it may take us a while to decide which prints we want.
Your work is beautiful. It's amazing how you have made my house, the church, and everything look so pretty!
~Laurie M. Cutler, Virginia Wedding
I'm in awe of your talent. With a ton of education and practice I hope to be able to capture images like you some day. The pictures are beautiful and it makes me beam to feel the emotions of that day all over again. You did such a fantastic job and I appreciate all your hard work. Thank you very much!
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!!!
~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.
The images are beautiful! We were so excited to see them. It's going to be really hard to choose favorites.
You have also been a pleasure to work with. I look forward to talking about album and print selections. It would be nice to see the albums again. I'm sure we will be traveling to Asheville again sometime this Spring.
I'm going to go back through the images again now!
~Jessica and James, Biltmore Estate Wedding
Angela! These are wonderful - Brian and I sat and watched the slideshow last night and are SO happy with them - THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't wait to share them with friends and family...
I hope you are well and are having fun over in The East!
~Natalie Akin, High Hampton Inn, Cashiers, NC
Angela's artistic vision through the lens as well as her sweet supportive
nature makes the experience of working with her very comfortable,
enjoyable, and extremely rewarding! The photos came out more beautiful and
unique than I ever could have imagined. She's a gem!
I'm so sorry for the delay in getting in touch with
you to tell you that we LOVE our photos!! You did a
wonderful, wonderful job. You captured so thoroughly
and so well the spirit of the event - the colors, the
details, the people... brava!! We couldn't be more
pleased. Angela, we are thrilled with our photos and are SO
glad we chose you to document our wedding! Thank you
so much for all of your work. By the way, we still
haven't done the newspaper article, but my mom LOVES
the shot of me coming down the stairs, looking down.
So do I. Can't wait to put our book together!
~Carter Williams, Virginia Beach Wedding
THANK YOU !! I would have emailed sooner to let you know we got the link to the images ok but we were too busy LOOKING... they are STUNNING! I just adore them, thank you so much. I am truly thrilled with the way they all came out and can't thank you enough for all your hard work.
I'll begin on the Album folders... So much fun!! Yes, we will be ordering the mini parent albums (I think several in fact).
Thank you so much. We will be in touch.
~Chantal & Nicolas, Arizona Wedding
I loved working with Angela. She is fun, creative, and her work is fabulous! I felt comfortable with her after our first phone conversation. I would definitely recommend her to other brides! Our experience with her was wonderful from start to finish! Feedback from our friends/family was excellent after they viewed our photos on-line.
~Jennifer and Jack
We can't thank you enough for fitting us into your schedule before you left Thailand. It was important to us to have photos of the kids before Nick left for college. We really wanted something different. Something and someone that would really capture Nick and Kari's personalities and the unique environment they have grown up in. You sincerely did this and more.
We still talk about you lying uncomfortably and precariously on the pavement, waiting several minutes for the clouds to pass by, so you could capture just the right light and moment. You did it! We are so pleased that we'll always have these beautiful photos of the kids (excuse me, I mean "young adults") as they truly were at a turning point in our lives. Remember you have a standing invitation to visit. Hope to see you here.
Many thanks and stay in touch,
I love the photos...my favorites are black and white on the beach...they are pieces of art that are just made special because it is us. There are some really funky color shots that I like as well - again, they are works of art! There are so many different camara angles used that even in the numerous family shots, the eye is never bored. You managed to capture the intimacy of the water ceremony beautifully.
Thank you so much for capturing our day and being so patient and kind.
-Debra, Thailand Wedding
Every time I look at Angela's images of our girls, my heart skips a beat! She has captured the essence of our girls in timeless images that we will enjoy for years to come! Angela's work is classic.
I hope this email finds you well. I was wondering when you are coming back to Arizona. I would like to schedule your services and have some photos taken at the house. Please let me know your availability.
I have had wonderful comments on the wedding pictures. They are fantastic, Peter and I are very pleased. Thanx again for your professionalism, artistic creativity, and patience. I have spread the word about your talent so I hope you have received some more contacts.
Take Care ~Melissa Rupoli
"We did a series of family photos with Angela in Bangkok and were throughly pleased with the entire experience. Angela is creative, fun to work with, and her style and eye for what will make the result personal and authentic really differentiates her work from the rest of the crowd. Highly recommended."
~Anita and Bjorn Jensen
Thanks again for a great job. The pictures were what I was looking for. They really reflected the character of the children. Every time I look at them it puts a smile on my face. Really like to do this every year.
Angela's portraits are gorgeous. She manages to capture moods in a highly artistic and sensitive way, which results in so many amazing photos that it's almost impossible to choose the "best" ones to keep. We hope to have the opportunity to have her capture the growth of our family over the years to come.
A unique opportunity that is so worthwhile.
Leslie Elliott and Matt Bruggen
Highly enjoyable and stress free! Great fun and will be back for more!!
Allison and Patrick Grogan
Wonderful and timeless treasures of my little people.
Angela is great. I would use her again and hope to in the future for family portraits. I would recommend her to anyone. You get exactly what you expect from viewing her website. She will give you very unique and quality work and is very professional. I give Angela an A++++.
Juli and Tim Rossi, North Carolina Wedding
Angela was very professional as well as patient and courteous to our needs. Her pictures are truly a work of art, she sets the bar for capturing and memorializing life’s precious times through her creativity and experience in the field.
Maria and Shane, Los Abrigados, Sedona Wedding
On behalf of all of us, I just want to say a huge "Thank you" for the shoot yesterday. The locations were fantastic and your energy & enthusiasm unbounding. Again & again I thought, "you really don't have to endanger yourself to get that shot - we can do without it" -- and yet you did climb the ladder and the scaffolding, etc to get the shot!!! And I am thrilled! I can't wait to see them!
Travel safely and I'll check in with you in a few weeks to see how it is coming.
The pictures are FABULOUS! Wow! I think Dale is very interested in the ones of Dracula leaning over Elise as potential poster graphics. Waiting for his final say so. I'll keep you posted on what we do next. The poster is our first decision.
Thank you so much and thank you for such fast & amazing work!!!!!!
Bonnie Zellerbach, Bangkok Theatre
Okay...WOAH!!!! I have never had an experience close to this one!! You are incredibly talented!!! You made me look good:):)!!!! I'm so excited!!!! This is so amazing and special. What a bonding experience indeed. I love you so much!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow...I'm so overwhelmed right now. So special. Blown away. Thank you Angela so much.
I am so tired and cannot even begin to choose right now. I will get up in the morning and get to it.
I love you! Warm hugs,
Jeanne Jolly, Angela’s incredibly talented, beautiful Carnegie Hall singing cousin
I continue to get compliments on our wedding photos and always point them in your direction. Your blog looks great, and I'm still honored that our special day was recorded by you, especially when I see your photography of other weddings and portraits. Just excellent work.
Things are good. Shortly after our honeymoon, I accepted a new position with the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and that is where most of my energy has been directed. I hope in the next month, however, to be able to give you a list of the photos we'd like.
Hope things are well with you!
Lee Nisbet, Duke Chapel Wedding
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!! :))))
We absolutely love the pictures and it was so neat to see them on the brides cafe. thank you for choosing our wedding to put on as one of your examples. we had such an amazing day. it really was beautiful and your pictures really capture the feelings we had that day. THANK YOU!
Sarah Nosbisch, Berry Hill Estate Wedding, South Boston, Virginia
The photos are gorgeous !! We were thrilled to pore over them today. Thank you so much for your lovely work, and we very much enjoyed having you there ! I haven't had a chance yet today to pass them on, but I'm anticipating many compliments on the photography.
Thank you again, and cheers !
Erin and Drew
wow! these are awesome! thanks for sharing!
Nicole Riley, Verge Events
Angela, thanks so much for today. It was more than a day of shoots for me. It was about our son and my family. It feels so good to put you "in charge" of what Rebecca and I have to say to Gabriel after we leave him "in charge" of our memory. The shoot was breathless, for me. I am grateful beyond my years.
Angela Stott has been wonderful to work with, and we highly recommend her! Angela was extremely responsive to our preferences for how the event was shot. She captured gorgeous images that convey the occasion both holistically and intimately, and we never even knew she was there! We couldn't be happier with our photographs, and our deep satisfaction attests to Angela's professionalism and talent. We're thrilled we chose Angela to document our wedding!
Carter and Daniel Williams, Virginia Beach Wedding
Angela was wonderful and listened to what we wanted and delivered such wonderful images from our day. I know that we will treasure her work for many, many years to come.
Carrie Jones, Virginia Wedding
Angela has a rare mix lyricism and reality in her images. She captured some absolutely timeless moments of our wedding day, as well of things we would have missed if not for her seeing them for us. Not only is she extremely skilled in what she does, she is also personable and easy to work with. We're thrilled she was there for us on our wedding day.
Kristin Atwell & Dennis Ford, Arizona Wedding
Just wanted to let you know that we received the DVDs! Thank you again for your work. You made the entire experience fun and memorable.
I'll be sure to stay in touch for any future needs.
Sung Chang, Vienna, Virginia Wedding
I'm so glad to hear from you. First, I wanted to say thank you so much for being in and working so hard during our wedding. I was so happy to finally meet you in person and I must say, you have such a wonderful glow about you!
Julianne Cheng, Biltmore Estate Wedding
Hi Angela! Good afternoon! We have been so busy with work and family that we just had a chance for the first time this weekend, to go through all the photos together. I of course have peaked many times :) We both love the photos so much and you did such a wonderful work for us. We're so appreciative. My girlfriend saw some of the photos and said that they should be in a magazine! I am so glad that I met you and truly enjoyed our conversations together. I would love to keep in touch and meet again with you in the future, I hope you don't mind :).
We are still going through the photos and pick out or favorites, there are quite a few. Oh, and I just wanted to tell you that you're so talented, but of course you already know that :).
If you are ever down this way in Florida, please let me know.
Julianne Cheng, Biltmore Estate Wedding
We couldn't wait for the date and wine tonight! We just saw the photos and they are amazing!! You worked hard with the editing in the pictures.
We will be looking through the pictures again this evening. I think we will take your advice on making it a date night. Could you remind us about how many pictures we need to choose for the album. It's going to be tough picking them.
Thank you for all of your hard work and for expediting the pictures to us. I hope you are having a wonderful summer so far and that you are able to take a few moments out of what must be an incredibly busy schedule to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Heather and Brian, Biltmore Estate Wedding
Just wanted to send a brief email thanking you for all your kindness and understanding during Calene's wedding. We both felt that your calm disposition was certainly what we needed especially given the fact that Calene had bronchitis. I think everything went well and certainly a lot of the credit goes to you. We will look forward to seeing the photos and hope you had a safe trip home with some much deserved R&R. Happy Mother's Day!
Mother of Calene, Lonesome Valley, Cashiers Wedding
I wanted to tell you how wonderful the photos are. Calene sent us the link yesterday and Fred and I were amazed at how many great shots you captured! We can't wait to share them with our friends and relatives.
I hope you are having a good summer although I am sure you are very busy. Thanks again for getting the proofs back in such a timely manner and feel free to use us as a reference if any potential clients request one. I can't wait to share your work with our friends who have daughters "marrying" age!
The pictures are wonderful. Thank you so much for being our photographer! Jimmy and I both loved looking through all of them and reliving the day. You did a WONDERFUL job. Thank you so much again. Hope your summer has been going well for you!
Calene, Lonesome Valley, Cashiers Wedding
The pictures you took were unbelievably awesome! You did a great job and we are so happy with the pictures. The photography was the most important thing to us for our wedding and we couldn't be happier! Thank you so much!
Derek Wong, Bald Head Island Wedding
