about Angela Nelson Photography

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 know a few things about me!

Here’s the thing: I’m going to be there during all the moments of laughter and tears and 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, oversized sweaters, and all things cheese. And wine. But most importantly, wine and cheese together.

My husband and I met 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. Big fan of 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.

Also, I’m a former high school English teacher. My drunk party trick is that I can recite the entire prologue of Romeo and Juliet. Try me.

I own another company, Engaged on Maui, that helps guys and gals plan and document their proposals! We 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 first daughter Eddy was born in 2017 and my second daughter Claire was born in January 2021. Being their mama is probably the coolest thing I’ll ever do.

 

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.

We’re Expecting Again | Baby Nelson #2 Coming in 2021

Well, it has been a weird time to be pregnant. Global pandemics turns out, are the best and worst time to be pregnant. It was in our family plan to expand our family in 2020, so please don't be quick to dub Baby Nelson #2 as a "pandemic baby" - a child conceived out...

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,...
