Angela is committed to being 5-star in everything she does. This artist has a heart of gold, excellent and supportive customer service (which is impeccable), and photos so gorgeous we were in tears we were so moved. Angela put us all at ease in front of the camera. We laughed and were relaxed. She taught the whole wedding party a trick so we'd feel like we were being seen well. She taught us how to stand so we were photographed well. :-) So sweet about all our insecurities! None of us like being in pics, but she fixed that for us! Angela got the formal pics done quickly - so everyone was happy about that! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Angela. I could go on and on. To top it off, her assistant photographer was a gem, too. So many of these vendors are uninspired and without creativity. Lots of them charge extra fees for things after the package has been paid for. I see reviews for places that hire photographers to shoot the wedding that you never meet. That's not what you get with Angela. She asked us what we wished for, what we;d like to make and how we want to remember the day - she designed our package for us, and we customized it to exactly what we need. She's so flexible. Amazing. We adore her.
Angela has the best heart of any of the photographers we contacted. Her caring attitude made all the difference for us during planning and on our wedding day. We interviewed 10 photographers. Some showed us beautiful photos but seemed hard to talk to. Some were easy to talk to but didn't have a good portfolio. Angela is both a great artist and very easy to work with. We truly enjoyed her and our families were at ease with her too. She's flexible, kind and very innovative! She loves her work and she loves people.
OMG, Angela we were all so blessed to have you as the photographer for my cousin's wedding! You were so calm, so gracious, so giving and above all CREATIVE!! We enjoyed your spirit and your energy so much - we know Bellagala does too!
Angela did more than take photos for our family reunion and 2 wedding receptions. Our family has never had professional photos taken and are tough to wrangle (whose aren't!?) but Angela navigated the talkative toddlers all the way up to the older grandparents. For the reception, I had a mishap with a toddler and chocolate icing but Angela jumped in to help me clean up. We appreciated her deep joy for her craft, her professionalism, and flexibility. In fact, we had some friends ask if she was family at our reception because she blended in seamlessly so now, Angela became family!
Understanding & Easy To Work WithReviewed on 10/08/2014 Anna M
Angela really took time to get to know what we wanted. Our style is not main-stream and we wanted our photos to have a very individual feel. She managed to get all we had asked for into our book. We wanted a modern thank-you gift to give to guest. She suggested a phone app our guests could download with pix from the day. It was so awesome! She gave us a link and we put it on the thank you cards. Our favorite pix are right in our phones! Our friends and family love it! Angela really is a cool chick and a great artist. We enjoyed having her there!
Good InvestmentReviewed on 10/08/2014 Kristin G
I had no idea that photography was going to be so much of my wedding budget. I was really surprised. When I called around and emailed several different photographers and studios I noticed that many won't send a price list and that many won't allow galleries on the web. I was really disappointed! Angela was forthright and honest and straight-forward. She's got very simple pricing and offers a wonderful value. Our wedding was the last time that my grandmother was with the family. Now we have the group photos and the candids and the album and she's in all of them. I'm blown away. My husband wanted me to tell you all that she's good about being quick and natural with the couple photos and that she was easy to understand when she gave directions.
Fabulous ServiceReviewed on 10/08/2014 Astrid L
We got Angela's information from a friend who met her at a wedding they attended. They told us she was really sweet and a hard working person. What an understatement. I don't think I saw her sit down unless it was to get photos from the ground. We enjoyed not having anything to worry about in terms of photography. She communicated with the other vendors to coordinate schedules and photos without bothering us except to confirm and make sure we were all on the same page. She made the most lovely photos of our wedding day and our now blended family. I will treasure them forever.

What we loved about Angela is her flexible nature and her eclectic style. She works to include details and elements that make the images tell the story as you view them. We alsmost regret hiring a videographer because the slideshow we got from her was so complete. She has online galleries that you can share with guests. Nobody does that. I really appreciated it because we have so many relatives who just dont travel well anoymore. Angela's work and integrity and quality are worth every cent. We ordred an album from her and the design she created for it is very pretty. We are thankful we found her. We are looking forward to using her for our newborn photos in the coming year!
Beautiful Work - Wonderful LadyReviewed on 10/08/2014 Amy K
Our day was very hectic (delayed planes and traffic delays) but Angel didn't get flustered at all and she kept the pace of thigns really stress-free. Our photos weren't "posey" or stiff. She has a way with kids, too. If you have the chance to book her - DO IT.
We Loved HerReviewed on 10/08/2014 Joanne S
Angela is thoughtful. Her storytelling is pretty and has a quality that other people can't grasp. She sees thigns nobody else does. She's so helpful and has wonderful ideas. Also, she isn't going to "sell" you anything. What you buy is what you spend. No UPSELLING. It's so stress-free.
Our Wedding PhotographerReviewed on 6/18/2014 schanavia p
Angela went above and beyond to capture all the little details and joy that took place on our big day. With her sense of humor and respect for what she does she always put me at ease when I would start to get the jitters. Many times photographers have to act as wedding coordinators and the flow of the day can often depend completely on them. Angela was personable, professional and reliable, not to mention a blast to work with on our wedding day! We have gotten so many compliments on our photos and absolutely love them all! Angela is super flexible and willing to try new, exciting things to make your photos great. She took us to new locations though out downtown Minneapolis for our wedding shoot so that we could have the city skyline in our special day. The best part of having Angela Photography as a part of our wedding, aside from feeling like we were working with a close friend, was that we had so many people tell us how fun our photographer was and how she treated them so well. Not to mention she’s the sweetest most accommodating individuals I've ever met! THANK YOU!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Perfectly DoneReviewed on 6/18/2014 Father O
Angela manages a real balance between professional and part of the background. She took care of things we were too busy to think about and I have to say, she did it all with a smile. At times we forgot she was there, but the photos tell us she noticed it all. Right down to tiny details - her eyes are so able to notice the slightest thing! We enjoyed her southern charm and hospitable nature. She made everyone comfortable and fit right into things in our family. That made the day all that much easier! We can't say enough about her. We really can't. We loved working with her and recommend her very highly.

Angie was really great at taking pictures of everything to capture the day. She was also available to talk prior to the wedding to get an idea of what my husband and I were like (personality wise) so she could get pictures that best reflected who we are.
I Was Just A Guest, But...Reviewed on 8/22/2013 wedding g
This lady was awesome with the kids. Nothing seemed to annoy her. At one point there was a little boy pulling at her dress and she looked down and said "Yes? Would you like to take a picture too?" She let him, and then he blushed and ran off to play. Also, I witnessed her lay on the floor to get the picture she wanted. She works hard. Her dry cleaning bill must be crazy! My favorite shot from the wedding was of the couple dancing. She stood on a 6 foot ladder to get that one from above. Really nice! I'd hire her in a heartbeat.
Angela is Amazing!Reviewed on 8/22/2013
Gifted and passionate, Angela makes every image count. Our ceremony was very tightly scheduled and group photos had to be limited. Angela got all our groups done in less than 15 minutes! There are about 50 people in our family and we wanted about 30 photos of various groupings. She did it. And she did it with a smile and a warm and gentle voice. She puts her client first. She thought of things most people would ignore like having kleenex for me at the altar! When we were moving to light the unity candle, she slipped them to me quickly, then took the used ones back! We didn't order an album, but she gave us one anyway, as a thank you gift! It is travel friendly and leather-bound. She put her favorite prints inside and left room for us to do the same. The outside has our names and our wedding date on it in silver. We recommend her HIGHLY!

We booked Lauterbach Photography for our wedding, and Angela did an exceptional job. She is professional, energetic, a great listener, and creative. I don't normally even like pictures of myself - and I now have wedding photos posted all over my home because they turned out so great. She even got my teenagers to smile, which is nothing short of a miracle. We'll be booking Lauterbach Photography for all of our future senior photos and family events, for sure.
