First of all, I hate taking pictures. I get all tense and nervous and the pictures of me never turn out right. AGB Photographics changed my mind about being photographed completely. The way she worked with us tore down all my worries and nervousness and none of that showed in our pictures! AGB Photographics was recommended to my wife and I and we were really impressed. Angela was very easy to work with and she took all my nervousness away. The day of the wedding, she was so flexible and understanding! She stayed for the whole reception even though we went over the alotted time. More importantly, the pictures turned out great. She had a variety to choose from and she was able to capture very intimate and emotional moments of our wedding that we didn't even know would be captured! Kudos to that! To top it off, many of our friends kept asking us who did our photography for our wedding because they were so impressed with how they looked. We would definitely recommend AGB Photographics to anyone who wants beautiful photos of their wedding!
We planned our wedding in just about 3 months and Angela was so responsive, available and willing to help out wherever she could. She worked with us and our tight time line, did a wonderful engagement photo session and created a custom guest book for our guests to sign (using our engagement photos!). She was on time to all the events and had creative ideas to capture the day. Superb!
I met Angela at a bridal fair, where I was instantly struck at the high quality of her work. From day one, she has been exceptional. The first session we had was a complimentary engagement photo session. On that day, it was windy and cold, but we had so much fun working with Angela that we forgot it was freezing. The pictures turned out great! For the wedding, Angela was so good that I didn't even feel like I was being photographed. She has a great way of putting people at ease. The wedding pictures came out amazing. Every time I look at them I'm impressed. Not to mention, she has an incredible eye for detail. Throughout the entire wedding planning, and even afterwards, she was extremely professional, friendly, and responsive. I can't recommend her enough!
It was wonderful working with Angela! Not only is she quick to help and respond, professional and creative with photo shots, but our pictures are amazing! I would be glad to share examples. She was easy to get a hold of, patient with our quesions, had a lot of examples of her work and references. She was very flexible and always on time and happy to meet us.
We trusted her completely with the memories of our wedding and we could not be happier. Our photos look like they are from a magazine! She not only helped with our wedding photos but also took our engagement photos, made us a slideshow dvd of our wedding photos to share with our family that could not make it to the wedding and made a photo guest book for our wedding. She was fully suportive of our quirky requests and got us what we needed right away.
We would (and have) personally recomend having Angela as your wedding photographer. We plan on having her take photos of our precious moments to come.
Angela's upbeat and positive attitude combined with her professionalism and extensive wedding photography experience made the whole process of working with her straightforward and efficient. She is also very personal and able to interact well with the bride and groom, even under pressure. Artistically, Angela is naturally gifted in photography; as my husband says "she is a cut above the rest". Angela was able to capture the beauty of the moments AND create striking albums to preserve the memories of wedding day for years to come. We highly recommend Angela!
Angela was great, she offers a free engagement session so we were able to get to know her before the wedding day. She was easy to work with and had lots of fun so our album turned out beautiful!
My husband and I had a great time working with Angela at AGB Photographics. She was extremely responsive to email and phone calls which really takes the tension out of wedding planning. When we visited her studio I felt that she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She was very clear in outlining her contract and obligations on both sides to ensure there wouldn't be any surprises later down the road. Above all, our pictures are amazing. Looking at them takes us back to the exact moment of our wedding day even though its been over seven months now. She was great with managing her time and our families to get everything done based on the timeline created. She was really fun and helped us to loosen up and take great photos. Creating the album online was very easy and again Angela was very responsive to our requests and understanding when we were behind on getting back to her. Overall, it was a great experiences and I'd recommend Angela to anyone.
Angela was fantastic, easy-going, and the pictures were wonderful.
Angela was FANTASTIC. She had great ideas on where to go for our engagements photos, and we had a blast taking photos. She wanted us to be ourselves and be natural, but also helped guide us when we weren't quite sure what to do. She took many candid wedding photos that turned out beautifully. I highly recommend Angela. My husband and I were extrememly comfortable with her, she's very funny, personable, and professional. Her photos were amazing. We couldnt have asked for a better wedding albumn!
Angela did an amazing job capturing every moment on our wedding day. The pictures turned out even better than we could have ever imagined. She also did an engagement session on us that turned out fabulous. She is very open to your ideas and really pays close attention to what you want. We both felt comfortable with her immediately. Angela is an incredibly creative and talented individual and it truly shows through the photographs. Your possibilities are endless with all of the different quality products she has to offer. Angela is a very warm and kind professional. She is also very dependable and we trusted her completely. As you can tell we cannot say enough good things about her. We would recommend her in a heartbeat and plan on contacting her in the future for other events.
Angela at AGB Photographics did a first class job for us from the first time we met Angela at her home in the East Bay. She warmly welcomed us into her home, showed us examples of her work and we did a Q & A about what we were looking for, what our styles are, where the event was ,etc. Basically, she took the time to get to know us so that she could taylor her photos to our liking / taste. The day of the event, she had at least two other photographers with her to make sure she didn't miss any moment of our special day. The results were better than we could have imagined and her rates were very competitive or less than other photographers we were referred to for the same package of services. I would wholly recommend Angela for any and all of your portrait and photography needs.
Angela is great to work with! She is so happy and bubbly that she makes everyone around her upbeat and I think it made our photos come out spectacular! She has great ideas and we were very pleased with our photos from the most special day in our lives! We can definately remember that day with all of the feeling and emotion that we experienced. She helped us capture that in our photos.
Angela is the ultimate professional. We were married in San Francisco but booked our wedding from the UK where we live. She was very flexible and accomodating, especially as we dealt with her only via the web so she did not have the advantage of meeting us beforehand.
The pictures are great, she made the whole experience one to remember especially as she knew a great venue for the photos incorporating shots of the City landmarks as we had requested.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Angela. A lovely lady and a pleasure to deal with.
My husband and I booked AGB Photography for our summer outdoor wedding and not only were the pictures wonder but the service was great. Additionally, Angela shot our engagement session at the marina, and not only was is so much fun, she really made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and brought out our personalities. Angela and her associate photographer were very perfessional and seemed invisable on our wedding day yet captured every moment. During the entire process she was very responsive to our needs and stayed on top of every detail. I am so pleased with all of the services as well as with the final product. My final album was thoughtfully designed and captured the essence of the day just as I remembered it. I would highly reccomend AGB photographics to all my family and friends.
I would highly recommend Angela to everyone. We loved her personality. She was wonderful to our families and guest. Products are fantastic, from large albums to small. Angela has become our photographer and friend for life.
I absolutely LOVED working with Angela. She was a blast. My husband and I would typically rather be behind the camera but she just kept us laughing and having a great time. We got incredible pictures that are possibly the best we've ever taken. Also, the product selection is great. I love the album choices. Our album looks like a work of art. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer for their wedding (or any event).
I had the privilege to work with Angela for Project SMILE, a outreach program to help women of domestic violence. She took amazing pictures of the women and their children and she made them feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Her sweet demeanor makes anyone feel at ease. -- Maria Chang of PMA

How do we book you?
Reserving my services for your wedding day is easy. First, i highly recommend you (the couple) and myself meeting so I can show you much more of my portfolio. We will discuss your wedding day in detail and I can help you decide exactly how many hours would be best for you. most often 7-8 hours is perfect for a full day coverage.
To retain my services, all I ask is a retainer fee of $500.00 which will go toward the package price and signing of an agreement of services.

All packages include my professional services on the wedding day for the time agreed upon, a complimentary engagement session, a personal website of your engagement session, and a product credit. I also include several appointments for album design, site visits, coffee meetings, etc!
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Absolutely! Engagement sessions are complimentary with my 5+ hour coverages, in fact. I find it is very important for you as the couple and myself to spend some time together getting to know each other personally. We will spend about an hour in a favorite location of your choice having fun, playing in the sand, enjoying lots of cuddle time for yourselves, and being as free and open as you’d like! Engagement sessions are a perfect time for me to try out some fun things, get to know how you both interact with each other, and for you to see how easy it is to work with me! Most of my clients find the session to be more fun than work!
Can we get the negatives?
But of course, this is YOUR wedding! no matter what the coverage, the wedding negatives are available to you. Some packages may include negatives/digital files!
Can I visit your Studio?
I would love that! I highly recommend we meet. There is no obligation, let’s just spend some time talking about your wedding day and I can show you a lot more of my work. I prefer to meet in my home studio. I have slideshow presentations, lots of heavy albums, and large wall portraits to show you. However, if you have any special needs, please don’t hesitate to ask! I am pretty flexible with your needs.

How do you work at a wedding?
The day of your wedding is as special to me as it is to you! I look forward to covering your event and eagerly await the special day!
The best way to describe how i work at a wedding comes from my previous clients:
“Angela was so wonderful to work with! She really gave a lot of her time and expertise into helping make our photos and our day turn out great. She was comfortable to work with and she really listened to what we wanted and helped to make these ideas work. She also offered some great suggestions and ideas in areas where we needed some guidenace. We just received our album, and with Angela's help really truly have the story of our day. We would definitely recommend Angela to anyone looking for one of the best.” Renee & David
“Angela is great! Once all our photo's were done, she blended in with the guests so well, we didn't even see her taking pictures for the rest of the wedding. Her pictures are fantastic, and she's really personalble and easy to work with.” Tiffany & Michael
“Angela was very down to earth and willing to worked with us happily and effortlessly at the wedding. There was a photo she forgot to take and she made sure to work it into our after wedding photo session so that we had lasting memories. I think it is hard to find a good photographer that you are comfortable with but Angela felt like family.” RaLinda & Vince
What is your Style?
I classify myself as a photojournalistic photographer who mixes a bit of traditional photography into each wedding. The traditional photography mainly is for your family portraits. I keep it casual, free, and spontaneous for portraits of the two of you as well as the rest of the day!
I keep myself always open to trying some new work – only if you both are open as well. Some new work consists of cross-processing, fashion, unique lighting, etc.
