I’m glad you’re interested in working with me! My goal is to make sure you get the best service and products for your investment.
WHY WORK WITH ME
I bring out the authentic feelings that make your story unique and your experiences special. And I make sure we have fun doing it!
I’m fluent in Vietnamese and totally understand what it’s like to grow up bi-cultural, to be in a inter-racial relationship, and to work with inter-cultural families. If you’re looking for a photographer who embraces diversity and keeps an open mind, you’ve found the right one.
Read on below to learn the simple five-step process of working with me and photography services designed with your needs in mind.
“I can’t say enough how impressed I am with Angelina’s work. She has a good eye and makes everything look phenomenal. Our photos are gorgeous. She’s friendly, responsive, and great to work with. I highly recommend her!” – Trang
THE PROCESS STEP-BY-STEP
Step 1: Book your session or wedding date as soon as possible
To get started, I invite you to browse my portfolio to ensure you know and love my photography style. I also encourage you to review some good-to-know tips as you’re preparing for your wedding day or a photo session.
To inquire about your preferred date and time, please send me a note. My calendar fills up quickly and I book on a first-come-first-served basis. To finalize your booking and secure your slot, you must submit a 50% reservation deposit paid via PayPal, Venmo, check or cash.
Step 2: Prepare for your session or wedding day
Once booked, we will connect either in person or virtually for a pre-session consultation to determine a location, style, and “story” for your session. To prepare for that conversation, make sure you nail the three L’s to set a solid foundation for a successful session. I will send you a Style Guide with useful information to help you prepare. For weddings and events, I will work with you to determine a timeline for your day and understand your photo requests.
You will have ample opportunity to ask questions and/or seek feedback. I have tons of ideas if you’re looking for suggestions or inspiration. If you’d like recommendations for hair and makeup, clothes, flowers, cupcakes, or anything you can think of, I’m happy to recommend the best vendors I know.
“My session with Angelina was fun and informative. She took great care to make sure I was comfortable and didn’t feel awkward on my first shoot. She also went above and beyond in making sure all the technicalities were right such as lighting and angles. Her instructions were informative and she paid extra attention to my concerns. The results were amazing and exactly what I was looking for!” – Anh
Step 3: Rock your session or wedding day
On the day of your session, make sure to double-check the weather forecast and dress in layers as necessary. Plan to arrive early so you have time to relax, feel comfortable, and get in the right mood for your session. Brides and grooms, I’ll work with you and adapt as your wedding day unfold so that you’re in the best mental state. It’ll show in your photos!
On that note, what does it take to get world-class photos that tell your story in the best light? Chemistry. Chemistry between you and others in the photo – your partner, family members, friends – is crucial.
I will make sure everyone in front of the camera feel comfortable, relaxed, and connected to each other. We want authenticity, personality, connection, and all the special qualities of who you are and what your relationship is about to show! This is what I’m known for and why couples and families book with me: to get real, candid, beautiful, natural depictions of themselves and their stories.
The remaining 50% of your balance is due two weeks before your wedding day. For portrait sessions, it is due at the end of your session.
Step 4: Select your favorite images for final editing
Within a week after your portrait session, you will receive a viewing gallery to select your favorite photos for final editing. If you’d like to purchase additional photos, payment is due when you finalize your selection.
This step does not apply to weddings because I deliver all the photos taken on a wedding day. You will receive a sneak peek of your wedding day highlights within a week.
Step 5: Complete your order by downloading digitals and ordering prints
For portrait sessions, within two weeks after I receive your selection, your final photos will be available for download in high resolution. Prints and wall art will be available for purchase so you can decorate your home with good memories!
For weddings and special events, I will edit all photos taken on your special day so you don’t have to choose a limited number. You will receive your photos in high resolution within four weeks along with options to purchase decorative products for your home.
A reservation deposit of 50% is due at booking, paid via Paypal, Venmo, mailed check, or bank account money transfer. The remaining 50% is due two weeks before your wedding day, paid via Paypal, Venmo, cash, or check. For portrait sessions, the remaining balance is due at the end of your session. Checks can be made out to Angelina Nguyen.
Travel farther than 35 miles radius of 55369 may incur a travel fee.
Rescheduling due to weather is up to the photographer.
If your booking is cancelled at least 60 days before your wedding day (15 days for portrait sessions), your reservation deposit will be fully refunded.
If cancelled less than 60 days before your wedding day (15 days for portrait sessions), your reservation deposit will not be refunded. This is because it’s unlikely that I can book a different client on the day reserved for you.
