Angela gets to know each client & makes them feel like they are the most important person in the room.
"I was completely taken aback when I saw the how beautiful the photos you took of my wife turned out! But we both melted when we saw the family ones you took. Once we settled into our new home, there was never a doubt about who's photography would occupy the living room fireplace!"
"OMG, thank you so much, Angela! I love [the head shots] so much. You did a great job editing them. These will be so helpful. I'll make sure to credit you in my posts."
"Now that I'm actually connecting with other actors I should probably post some 'actor' stuff. Look at these exquisite head shots done by @angelagartner.photography. The credit is long overdue!"
"Angela has a way of capturing the soul, emotions, and authenticity of clients with her photography. When looking at the portraits in printed medium, you feel the person's energy when looking at their eyes, as if they are speaking directly to you. Her photography makes you want to sit and chat with the individuals in her portraits as if you were best friends."
Lilayi Elephant Nursery, Lusaka
A sanctuary for defenseless calves who are victims of poaching, human conflict or the occasional natural abandonment by the herd. Trained keepers at the orphanage feed, provide care and protection, and enrichment opportunities for the young elephants under their care until they are old enough to defend for themselves and reunite with a herd in the wild.
"I had such an exciting time getting my photograph taken by Angela! She was a delight to work with and has a beautiful collection of costumes. She talked me through her vision and what I wanted/needed, making sure we both felt comfortable. I’ve never had professional photos taken before, excluding the annual school picture day when I was a child, so it was refreshing to step outside of my comfort zone...We forget how amazing an experience it is for someone to capture the work of art we can become."
Hank & Eva vA.
Having a collection of family portraits throughout their home, beginning with their marriage, Eva and Hank wanted to capture the story of their love for each other with some updated photos. Working in and around their home, not only were we able to capture the emotions and love for one other, but some of their individual personalities that have made them who they are today. Eva and Hank are strong proponents of the power portraits in print have - from wall art to family photography albums and storybooks.
Late November 2022, we learned that Ginger was terminally ill and had about one week to live. Angela was the only photographer we wanted to take Ginger's portrait during her final week. We knew that Angela would beautifully capture Ginger in a way that best represented what she meant to our family over the years. We highly recommend everyone consider having a professional photograph their pet at least once in their lives. We recommend Angela if you want an AMAZING pet portrait!
"I already had seen the photos, so you would think there would be no surprise when I received the final prints. But there was a surprise in how great it felt to handle photos and not digital. The pictures look even better in-person. Just all over classy, thoughtful, meticulous, fabulous, and continuing to create an experience. Thank you 💗"
My photographs are gorgeous, Angela. What a gift you are. Thank you!
