CLIENTS

HAVE TO SAY

Words cannot describe how amazing Angelika is—as both a photographer and a person! Angelika is kind, flexible, professional, friendly, and a true artist. She was incredibly organized and informative throughout our wedding planning process. Before our wedding, my husband and I had multiple conversations with Angelika and felt very comfortable and confident with Angelika herself, our photo schedule, and what to expect. The day of our wedding, Angelika was absolutely wonderful! Her calm and caring demeanor made Angelika feel like a part of the family by the end of the wedding! When we received all of our wedding photos, I was so impressed and ecstatic. Angelika is an amazing artist and managed to capture not just the images of the event but the feelings behind each small moment. My husband and I are so very happy she was our photographer.

I am so, so glad that my husband and I found Angelika to capture our wedding. She is the sweetest person ever, extremely professional, and an absolute joy to work with! My family is still commenting on how great she was. Her wedding photography is seamless and unobtrusive, capturing every moment without interrupting a single thing. The way she uses natural light is amazing and she really has a natural eye for it. Angelika is the sweetest, most talented photographer I've ever met, and she really makes you feel comfortable and not "posey." I cannot recommend her highly enough, and am so glad to have found such a talented woman that I am honored to now call my friend.

Angelika was a pleasure to work with throughout our wedding journey. She was extremely easy to talk to and so much fun! She makes you feel like you've been friends for years. When it came to our wedding day, she made sure everything went smoothly! When it was time to cut the cake, I realized I had no idea where my expensive BEAUTIFUL cake cutter had gone, but in a literal instant Angelika took my hands and said most sincerely, "Don't worry! I'll be right back!" And within a minute, she brought to us 3 back up options to choose from. She saved me from panicking about such a small detail and gave us a funny story about our wedding instead. Angelika was such a fun addition to our wedding day. She made our family and friends feel welcome, and we couldn't be more in love with the pictures!

We were honored to have Angelika with us on our wedding day. While there are many things that were significant to Micah & I when planning our wedding, the most important thing was picking a photographer that would be able to capture not only the events at our wedding, but the feelings we had that day - towards each other and towards our loved ones. Angelika was able to do this and so much more. The pictures that Angelika took show our love story and have allowed up to relive the memories of our wedding day over and over again. Angelika was absolutely incredible from the very start. At our engagement shoot, she took the time to get to know us as a couple. All the little intimate details that she remembered about us (and our wedding party) made it feel like we had a friend behind the camera the day of our wedding. She did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable, so the photos were truly genuine. Angelika is extremely artistic and willing to push herself creatively. Before the wedding, she scoped out the area and found a few places to do our portraits as a couple. Along with our traditional wedding portraits, Angelika took us on a little adventure to take some pictures that were so unique to anything I’ve ever seen. From a little lake near the property of the vineyard, to a gorgeous field hidden down a long dirt path that no one else would have been able to find, Angelika was able to capture the intimate moments we first had as husband and wife with the most gorgeous landscapes behind us. Angelika is extremely professional and has an unmatched attention to detail. She helped me plan out everything from the details we wanted pictures of, to our family formal schedule, and the timeline for all other important moments weeks in advance so I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of. Her bridal guide was a lifesaver! Honestly, I don’t know what I would have done without her. You would be foolish to choose anyone other than Angelika! I cannot wait to work with her again!

We worked with Angelika Johns for our wedding and working with her was a DREAM! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and the images that she captured for us were absolutely gorgeous. We loved that she offered an engagement session so that we could get comfortable with her and know what would work for us on our wedding day. On the day of the actual wedding, Angelika and her second shooter had such wonderful energy and they were a joy to work with. They did a wonderful job of capturing both the traditional and the beautiful candid shots from the day. Cannot recommend Angelika highly enough!

Wow! Angelika and her team were so attentive, talented, and professional throughout our planning and the wedding day. She was able to capture some outstanding moments from our day that really helped capture the emotions and bring us back to that day. I especially wanted this one certain capture and she took such care in making it happen! Our only regret is that we where not able to book an engagement session with her as well. After all of this planning, your wedding day goes by in a blink and I am so happy we choose Angelika to be our photographer! THANK YOU ANGELIKA!!!

Our first hint into the incredible talent of this photographer was our engagement photos. It was FREEZING and windy on the day we chose, but Angelika produced photos that made it look like a warm happy day. Our wedding photos absolutely exceeded my expectations. It is no exaggeration to say that I loved every single photo that she took. She was lovely to work with and I absolutely recommend her.

From the moment we met Angelika she felt like a dear friend! She is smart, talented, beautiful, personable and so easy to work with! She somehow managed to perfectly capture our personalities in a series of images which we will forever cherish, and that was only our engagement shoot! We simply cannot wait until the wedding both because we are ready to start our lives together, and because we are looking forward to working with our fabulous photographer once again!

Angelika is amazing. She did our engagement shoot and will do our wedding as well. She made us feel so comfortable. Every photo looks so natural and really shows our love for one another and our dynamic as a couple. The aesthetic and coloring of the photos are to die for. You can’t go wrong by hiring Angelika for any of your photography needs!

I had one of the best nights of my senior year hanging out with Angelika and taking my senior pictures. She has amazing creative energy and takes the time to get to know you as a person. She is one of the kindest, warmest people I have ever met and I instantly wanted to be her friend. It's amazing how quickly she can make connections with people. At the end of the shoot, I felt as if we were friends. She knew how to guide me without over-posing me and was able to capture many different aspects of my personality. Her selection of locations and willingness to hear my ideas was also great. I am insanely happy with how the photos turned out. Angelika can render anyone beautiful through the artistic lens of her camera, which is a true talent. I would recommend her to everyone. She is a joy to work with and an extremely gifted photographer.

Angelika did my senior photos and I am in love with them. I was super excited but also a little nervous going into the shoot because I didn't know what to expect and I was worried that I wasn't going to do a good job on my end with the posing, etc. When I told her my concerns she reassured me that everyone feels that way, but once you get comfortable with it, it gets a lot better! She really helps to guide you throughout the whole process so you don't feel like you have to think of what to do in the pictures while they are happening, she makes it feel really natural. I had such a great time during my shoot and was amazed when I got the pictures back, so if you are wanting a super sweet person who can take some really incredible pictures and tells you exactly what to do so she can get the best looking picture she can, Angelika is for sure your girl!

We had been bouncing emails back and forth for weeks, so FINALLY MEETING HER WAS. THE. BEST! Angelika is full of creative ideas and knows exactly how to turn what may initially look like an abandoned repair shop into the coolest location we had hit that day. I couldn't have known what I wanted until I was there with Angelika because she took it to an entirely new level. She's a professional through and through, and it doesn't hurt that she is an awesome person (and I am happy to say, now a friend!!). This was awesome, she is awesome, and I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. It's an experience you won't forget! Stop reading!!! Go go go!!!

I had heard of the amazingly talented Angelika, but I had never actually met her until the day of my senior photo shoot. I normally hate being photographed, but our short time together was consumed with laughter and adventure. From the moment I met her, I knew that our day was going to be filled with much more than just cheesy poses and smiles. Angelika is probably the sweetest person I now know! With her spirit she has the ability to capture the beauty in everything with just the click of a button. Don't hesitate to hire Angelika!

The minute I met Angelika, I knew my shoot would be amazing! It was the combination of her giddy enthusiasm and unwavering optimism that truly made the shoot. Her funny jokes and quips kept me laughing, made the smiles in my photos realistic, and made the experience all the more enjoyable! After the shoot, I got to see my photos and was stunned. All of them were absolutely beautiful and I couldn't have asked for better pictures! I had so many favorites that I almost missed my deadline to submit my senior portrait for my school's yearbook because I just couldn't choose. Angelika was fantastic to work with as she was professional, but also personal. I would definitely recommend her. She truly has talent and is amazing!

Angelika is incredible! I have never met someone who knows how to make absolutely anyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She truly knows exactly what to bring out in everyone to create stunning pictures. She is professional, while still taking the time to get to know you. I could not have asked for anyone better to take photos of me. They came out beyond what I had imagined. I would highly recommend her for any picture needs at all! My pictures turned out beautifully and I can't accredit that to anyone except her.
