fearless maui wedding photographer


Hi there! I’m Angie and I’m so glad you’re here. I’m a Maui wedding photographer who is blessed to call this beautiful island home for the past decade.


It’s a day you’ll revisit for the rest of your lives and you want amazing photographs to remind you of every moment, both big and small.

I believe in genuine connection, documentary style shooting, gorgeous light – both natural and manufactured – and the use of Maui’s epic landscape to showcase your love for one another and this beautiful island.

The flowers will wilt, the dress will hang in a closet, the guests will leave – but your photos will stand the test of time. It is my aim to make you feel what your wedding day was like through your photographs.








So my wife says I’m a little OCD, but I just tell her I have a passion for details! As we planned for our wedding, I made her look at every photographer in Maui (Okay…maybe just a little OCD). Once we began to look through Angie’s work and it wasn’t very long until we knew she was the ONE! Not only could you get a sense of passion and detail from her work, but her style also speaks volumes when you think of Maui. Her utilization of light, vibrancy, and nature radiates over you as the Maui sun caresses your skin and brings a sense of warmth throughout. Her perspective ability to focus on the subject and landscape to not only provide a photograph but an illustrious story of your life that will remain vividly ingrained in your memories.


Angela Nelson is an amazing photographer, a beautiful person inside and out, and choosing Angela Nelson Photography was one of the best choices I made in planning my wedding. She was a dream to work with before, during and after the wedding, and I can’t recommend her enough!…After the wedding she got our photos back to us much quicker than I’d expected. I was so nervous to see the pictures, but as soon as I looked at the first one I knew I had nothing to worry about. They’re so beautifully unique and amazing, I honestly can’t believe they’re of my actual wedding! She did a great job of capturing how my husband and I felt that day, and I love the way that she lets the beauty of Hawaii shine through in every picture. Weddings can be stressful, and it’s such a value to have a grounding, positive, strong presence like Angela during that experience. Every time I look at our wedding pictures I’m reminded of what an amazing experience it was, and how appreciative I am that she was able to capture it so beautifully


My fiance and I were in Maui for a family vacation and decided to take our engagement pictures there as well. I didn’t know what to expect and was somewhat nervous for our session, but all of that soon went away when we met Angela. 

The last thing I wanted was for our pictures to turn like everything was scripted. Angel’s style of photography is far from that and she is so easy to get along with, that you forget she’s not someone you’ve been friends with forever and is there to take photos of you. 

Having Angela as a photographer is an adventure for sure and not only do my fiance and I have beautiful photos, but fun memories as well.


Wedding photography doesn’t have to look likwedding photography.

What that means is that your wedding photos should be as unique as you are. No two weddings are the same and your photographs should reflect that.

I’m there to document the day that you’ll be reliving for the rest of your lives. Every little emotion, every laugh-shared, every tear-wiped; let’s remember every moment, both big and small.

If you’re looking for images that reflect the love, the beauty of Maui, and emotion of the day, you’ve come to the right place.

I take on a limited number of weddings per year so that way I can focus on your special day. Digital images and high-fives included in every collection.
