ABOUT

wedding photographer in maui ⋅ adventure-seeker ⋅ midwest girl at heart ⋅ wife to anthony ⋅ mama to eddy sue

HEY! I’M ANGIE!

In a nutshell, I’m a Midwest girl living out her Neverland dreams in Maui, Hawaii.

As a kid I always wanted to be a lost boy and live in a treehouse surrounded by the jungle and the sea. And Hawaii is probably as close to Neverland as I will get.

I moved to Maui in 2009 with my husband, a few suitcases, and a chance for a new beginning. It was Maui that re-ignited my love for photography.

From the second I stepped off that plane, I knew that there was something special about this place; it was real-life magic.

I am inspired by love, nature, and the beauty of relationships – and years from now I want you to remember how your wedding day FELT through your images.

MY MISSION:

To document your wedding with authenticity and documentary style shooting – infused with artistry and the beauty of Hawai’i

THE STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME

Look – if I’m going to be spending one of the most important days of your life with you, it’s probably good you get to know me a bit better!

Here’s the thing: I’m going to be there during all the moments of laughter and tears. I’m gonna see the unfiltered crazy that is your wedding day. And it’s going to be awesome.

So let’s get right to it and be friends, K?

 

I grew up in a small town outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. I’m a Midwest girl at heart that loves bonfires, over-sized sweaters, and all things cheese. And wine. And wine and cheese together.

I met my husband in high school. I always knew he was the man I was supposed to marry, but we didn’t start dating until I was 21. We got married in 2009 and renewed our vows in 2019 in Bali!

I’m an avid listener of podcasts. I love Criminal, Invisibilia, and This American Life.

I can have an entire conversation using only GIFs. Seriously. I welcome the challenge.

 

I’m fluent in dad-jokes and try not to take myself too seriously.

I’m a former high school English teacher. My drunk party trick is that I can recite the entire prologue of Romeo and Juliet. Not gonna lie – I’m gonna need a few cocktails first!

I own another company, Engaged on Maui, that helps guys and gals plan and document their proposals! I have a staff of four photographers and a BA office manager! We call ourselves Bush Ninjas and we love planning surprises!

You’ve probably already noticed – but I’m a mom too! My daughter Eddy was born on May 26, 2017. She keeps me on my toes with her toddler antics – but man does she bring joy to our lives!

 

I BELIEVE
I believe with providing my clients with stunning images that will transport them back to one of the most important days of their lives.

That they should make you feel what your day was like.

And I really believe that your wedding photos shouldn’t be boring.

A Day in the Life | The Nelsons 2020

The images dropped in my inbox today and, to be honest, I was totally blown away. And weirdly emotional. Because things are going to change. Not right now, not tomorrow - but slowly over time. The day-to-day of our lives as a family of three are numbered (don't worry,...

Why I Renewed My Vows and Why You Should Too

It was last year around this time that Two Mann Studios announced that they had something epic up their sleeves. And all of us who know Lanny and Erika know that whatever they touch turns to gold - photographic or otherwise. Anthony and I were deep into our first 1.5...
