ABOUT ME

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

HEY! I’M ANGIE!

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

Truly, 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

OTHER FUN FACTS ABOUT ME

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!

Because let’s be real – it’s way more appealing to call each other friends, right?

Right.

 

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.

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.

I’m an avid listener of podcasts. I love Criminal, Invisibilia, This American Lifeand Goal Digger.

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 more of a TV episode person than a movie person. I’ll watch The Office for the 17th time rather than commit myself to watching a new movie that’s 2.5 hours long. Maybe it’s my attention span? But don’t fret – there are some movies that set my little TV-episode-loving-heart on FIRE.

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! I love it!

And most importantly – I’m a mommy! My daughter, Evelyn Sue Nelson, was born on May 26, 2017! We are totally in love with this little girl!

 

But hey–I want to hear more about you! 

Drop me a line and let’s chat!

ACCOLADES

Yeah, I have some accolades.

But truthfully, I love putting my time and energy into my couples and creating an amazing customer experience over submitting to publishers.

But hey – it’s fun to show what I’ve done and I’m honored to receive the awards I have!

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...

One Year with Evelyn Sue

I just completed my new website and I'm SO happy with how it turned out! But when I was compiling the ABOUT ME page I realized that the last post I did that was a personal post was the one about Evelyn's birth...nearly a year ago. Where did the last year go? Somewhere...
