Angie is not only extremely talented, but so very easy to work with. I really don’t enjoy having my picture taken and avoid it at most costs, but Angie made it so easy and fun. She knows what works and trusting her was definitely the best decision we made regarding our wedding. -Chrissy S.
Angie was the absolute BEST and made our day so special. We decided early on that we didn’t want to invest in a videographer, but rather put that money and focus into photography. I wanted photos that looked more artistic, less posed, more special…not your typical forced “wedding pictures”. Angie did NOT disappoint. The lighting, angles, etc. are special and unique in every single photo. They really stand out and are so beautiful. We are going to enjoy these for MANY years to come. Angie was kind and wonderful to work with on top of it. She was one of the easiest decisions to make and I’m so glad we did. I will cherish the photos forever! – Vicky V.
Angie of La Candella Weddings was exceptional to work with. The effort she invests to produce the end result is unparalleled. Our wedding pictures are so beautiful and she was able to capture the exact look and feel we imagined. Highly recommend her as a photographer.– Julie R.
Angie did our engagement and wedding photos. She is such a talented photographer! She takes regular images and makes them into magical works of art. Such an amazing person to work with as well. I would highly recommend her!! – Abigail H.
If you are looking for the areas best photographer to capture your perfect day, look no further. I’ve already done the research for you. I’ve spend long hours doing my homework on finding the right photographer for my wedding who is experienced, unique and affordable. I met with many photographers; some which were nightmares experiences because of their lack of professionalism, most were great but just lacked that extra something. Angie on the other hand is the whole package. First of all, she is the most professional person I have ever met. Anytime that I emailed her with questions, she responded within minutes. She makes you feel like your her one and only client…she even sends you a welcoming package full of goodies! The first time that my husband and I worked with Angie was during our engagement session. I was slightly nervous because I’m not photogenic, but Angie is so sweet and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera which translated greatly in the photos that she delivered. Angie is easy going but at the same time she’s all business. She came to location already having an image in her head of what she wanted to capture but at the same time, was receptive to my own ideas and personal vision. We went to nearly 5 different sites and completed our session in less than 45 minutes! Efficiency may not be something you necessarily think about when shopping for a wedding photographer, but when it’s the day of your wedding you will really appreciate having to spend less time away from your big day while still feeling confident everything you want and more has been captured.
Secondly, Angie’s work is flawless. Her background in high fashion is evident for all her photos are completely stunning and unique. Her photographer has an in motion, lively feel verses the stagnant, typical wedding pictures you are used to seeing. Her quality of work and attention to every detail is comparable and in my opinion better than other photographers who charge twice as much. She didn’t miss a moment of my wedding, her collection of photos looked almost like a still movie, but she somehow was was able to do so without being at all intrusive. She completed my wedding collection sooner than expected without compromise in quality along with more gifts and goodies! Choosing Angie to be a part of my big day was one of the best choices I’ve ever made, I hope you do the same.-Jami, 2016 Bride
Angie was so unbelievably amazing and professional from start to finish. My husband and I’s bridal portraits were everything I could have dreamed of and more. They were unique, dramatic, romantic, and completely captured the love we both felt that day. She was perfect.The only thing I would’ve changed was to hire Angie for LONGER, she was that amazing!!!! In the 8 hours I booked her, she was the sole photographer and beautifully captured EVERY single precious moment of our day. I have two younger sisters and will make sure they hire her as their photographer when it is their time!!! 😉 I can’t tell you how many times I heard my family and friends say your photographer was so talented-your pictures look like out of a magazine!! Thank you Angie for everything. You are the BEST! <3-Maria, 2016 Bride
Angie was the most amazing photographer to work with for our wedding. She was so helpful with everything, knew exactly how to position everyone, and the pictures are gorgeous. She even went out of her way to help me with flowers for my hair. Her creative and artistic touch on her work made the photos everything I’ve dreamed of. The day will forever be remembered as everything I’ve ever dreamed – thanks to Angie’s photos! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer to talk with Angie – one of the most amazing vendors I’ve ever met!-Ashley, 2015 Bride
Hands down, Angie Candella is a genius photographer who masterfully captured our pictures as gorgeous art! My husband and I planned a wedding from out of state, and while most of the planning was stressful, working with and hiring Angie was one of the easiest and best decisions we could have ever made! We had previously been talking with another photographer whom we found to be very rude (my husband and I are very laid back people, so this came as a shock to us), and received a recommendation for Angie. We still talk about the relief we feeling in making that switch. Angie spoke with me several times before the big day to gauge what I was looking for and get an idea on my husband and my personalities. She even sent us an incredibly thoughtful gift package a few months before the big day! We had our wedding in Stahlstown, PA at Oak Lodge. It has over 80 acres, and Angie had never shot there before, but that certainly didn’t matter and you wouldn’t have known it to watch her in action! She shot our pictures at the most gorgeous locations and even had the owner of the venue comment that the one picture she posted afterwards was stunning and he even pressed me for her information that I happily gave so he could recommend her to others! I am terribly unphotogenic, and Angie helped direct me and put me at ease the whole time to ensure the pictures came out beautifully! She blends into the background and captures everything! I cannot recommend her enough. My husband and I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures as the ones we’ve seen already are absolutely stunning! Thank you so much, Angie! We now will have our memories locked in time forever as a result of your gorgeous work! Andrea, 2015 Bride
We love Angie’s work so much that even though our wedding was in Colorado, we had to have her there! She set up some FaceTime meetings leading up to the wedding, we chatted about ideas and vision for the wedding, it was so easy and not at all stressful! Angie is so professional and timely. We did many of the photos in the Garden of the Gods offsite from the ceremony right before the wedding and she went the day before the wedding to scout out the best places for wedding party photos and portraits so that we could use the time efficiently. She made everyone feel comfortable including the youngest wedding party members (2,3, and 5 years!). She is fantastic at keeping everyone moving so that we could get all of the photos we wanted and not be late to the ceremony. I should add that the photo location we chose involved basically hiking down a rock formation in wedding attire, and Angie was totally up for this and excited about it! She manages to use scenery in a way that no one else can in photos, looking back we feel like we are right there again! Looking at the photos of the ceremony itself – they are so close up and detailed, you’d think she was right on top of us and in the way but I don’t even remember seeing her during the ceremony at all! She just moves around all stealthily and gets the best shots! Same things with the reception photos…It was so much fun working with Angie and our photos are stunning, the quality is amazing and she captured so many beautiful moments both posed and candid shots too- but the fairy tale feel you get from Angie’s work is the best part!! We also cannot believe how many photos there are – choosing favorites is going to be impossible! Angie- thank you SO much!! –Donna, 2015 Bride
I have had the pleasure of working with Angie for the past 5 years. In this time I have gotten to know her both on a professional and personal level. She is an amazing person as well as a brilliant artist! As a designer, it is very hard to find a photographer who can “get” what look you are going for, I can tell you she never ceases to amaze me! I have followed her work for years, she is hands down one of the most talented photographers I know! If you are looking for “normal” run of the mill shots, she is not your girl, but if you are looking for “your moment” to be captured, the photos that speak volumes and creative beautiful photography…she is the photographer you want! Colleen Bankovich, Owner and Designer of Kata Banko Couture
I have had the amazing pleasure of working with Angie on three of my bridal accessory look books for my company. She is an amazing photographer and has made my designs look so gorgeous by the way she styles the location, model, hair & makeup, and the accessories. I am so lucky to have her make my designs look so beautiful. Kim Ortiz, Owner and Designer of Cloe Noel Designs
Worked with Angie several times. She has an artistic eye for everything. She is amazingly efficient and makes a detailed shoot seem effortless. Her images are timeless. Kristen Peckich, Owner of La Pomponnee Salon & Spa
I cannot rave enough about how much we LOVE our wedding photos! Seriously, if you are considering hiring Angie to capture your special day, don’t wait another minute… just do it! From the minute I met Angie, I knew she had to be our photographer for our big day. We met at a coffee shop where she showed me multiple weddings and look books that she worked on. I was blown away by the quality in her work. She truly captures the moment and feeling of your day. I also learned that she used to be fashion photographer which was also appealing to me since I work in the fashion industry. I knew right there and then that she definitely knows how to tell you to pose for all the good angles 😉 Prior to our wedding, she sent us an adorable “welcome kit” which I just seriously loved. It included bridal magazines, a little wedding planning notebook (which I used religiously), some sweet treats, and a hand written note. It’s honestly just such a nice gesture that makes you feel even more special! My husband and I had planned a beach wedding in Erie, PA. Our ceremony was planned to be right on the beautiful beach of Presque Isle. However, sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate with you, and it thunderstormed. Needless to say, we were devastated that we had to move our ceremony inside and wouldn’t be able to take photos outside either. I would be lying if I didn’t say that I was slightly worried that our photos weren’t going to come out as great since we had to work with only indoors. But boy, did Angie prove me wrong! By just the first preview picture, I was absolutely BLOWN away! It was truly the best photo I’ve ever seen of my husband and me. Only a few weeks later, Angie posted the highlights of our wedding day, and I cannot even tell you how pleased we were. Everyone and anyone compliments on our photos and many have said they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! Honestly, they are truly just amazing and catch the true essence and beauty of our day. So in a nutshell, again, if you hire Angie to photograph your wedding day, you most definitely will not be disappointed!!! –Melissa, 2015 Bride
I met Angie during a few photo shoots prior to our wedding. After we got engaged and started planning our wedding, I knew Angie would be the perfect choice! Her artistic touch paired with her romantic outlook on life creates the perfect fairtale narrative to a wedding. I knew our vintage, garden wedding would just amplify her work, we were so thrilled to see the photos she took. Our day was PERFECT and thanks to Angie, our day will forever be documented. –April, 2015 Bride
Angie by far is the only person we considered for our wedding photographer! She pays so much attention to detail! We loved the romantic style of her photos and it showed in our wedding day pictures! Our pictures literally looked like they came out of a fairytale book! Not only is she talented but she is the sweetest and so easy to work with! –Ashley, 2015 Bride
Angie is an amazing professional photographer. It ended up pouring heavily on my wedding day but, she was able to get amazing photos. During a sort of break in the storm we were able to get out to one of the gardens and the pictures look almost magical. No matter what the whether is she does great job, We are extremely pleased with how the photos turned out given the weather. Also, I’ve never seen such person who responds so fast! –Si Eun , 2015 Bride
Let me start by saying WOW. My husband and I booked Angie for our Wednesday wedding 6 months prior to the date. Just over 1 month before we were due to be married we decided to cancel our Pittsburgh wedding and elope to the beach, throwing all our vendors and would-be guests a huge curve ball. Angie was extremely accommodating, even offering to travel with us as long as it were in our budget. Unfortunately for us we could not afford the added expense as airline travel was very high, but we we deeply regret not bringing Angie to the beach for our ceremony! She offered to instead do a post-wedding session and family photos with all the relatives we couldn’t invite. The turn around time for the edited photos was immaculate and the images were the most incredible that I had ever seen of us. My husband and I literally looked like we were in a fairytale. I knew when we booked her we would be pleased with the photos, but I never really knew just how in love I’d fall with them. I am so thankful for her attention to detail and willingness to deflect from my less flattering features. She is a true artist. I would recommend her to ANYONE! –Brazil, 2015 Bride
Angie made a dream come true for JoAnna and I’s wedding. She bent over backwards to serve us and make our day pleasant and she truly captured raw moments at the wedding both hilarious and beautiful. She was cool and confident the entire day and served radically with no regards to her own needs. Our pictures exceeded even this picky artist’s expectations. They were magical.Everyone should hire Angie and bless her as much as she blesses you! – Brian and Joanna, 2015 Wedding
Angie is an amazing photographer with an amazing amount of talent. I was fortunate to collaborate with her for a styled bridal shoot. She has a great eye for shots and took such creative photos. I’m in love with her work and I am proud to have had the great pleasure of working with her. I highly recommend La Candella Weddings for ANY event –Phuong Minh Nguyen- Owner of Dream Dresses by P.M.N
I really wanted great photos from my wedding, and Angie was the BEST! After seeing her beautiful wedding photos on her website and blog, I knew she was the only photographer I wanted for my wedding. My photos came out amazing- I received many compliments on how beautiful they were! I received the USB drive in a beautiful customized box and she included some print photos and a thank-you note as well. Angie was very prompt with returning calls, texts, and emails. I was very grateful for this- some of my wedding vendors were very unresponsive and it added stress to an already stressful time of planning! I LOVE my pictures and Angie worked with our budget and charged a very fair rate compared to other photographers that I had researched (and in my opinion, her pictures were way better! 🙂 Angie truly went above and beyond to make our photos beautiful- from showing up early to going around a wet golf course on a bumpy golf cart ride and being patient with our un-lightable sparklers, she was so positive throughout the whole day. My husband and I highly recommend her! –Anna, 2014 Bride
Angie at La Candella is a photography genius! She creates a storyboard of your special day. She is open to suggestions and is very flexible. She has such an eye to capture you at your best and to make you feel very comfortable. Everyone is raving about my wedding photos and I want to shout La Candella from the roof tops!!! I cant say enough about how pleased we are with our photos and Angie is a gem to work with. Thank you La Candella. –Michelle, 2014 Bride
Angie at La Candella Weddings has photographed 2 lookbooks for my wedding veil company now. She did such an amazing job the first time, I just had to come back for my new line! Angie is a rare combination of a brilliant, creative, technically proficient photographer and a wonderful, kind person who is willing to listen to the client’s vision and work with it. All of my images came back breath taking! I plan to work with Angie again often in the future! Thank you Angie!- Chris, Urban Veils Couture Bridal Lookbook 2014
Angie is an amazing photographer. She was accommodating from beginning to end of our wedding day. When our second location for photos was closed at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances, she didn’t miss a beat and was still able to capture beautiful shots on a whim at a much different location that we were not anticipating to use. She gave us beautifully formal and “typical” wedding pictures that we asked of her. But most of our favorites came from just letting her use her creativity and natural eye for what makes a great picture. I recommend Angie to everyone I know getting married. -Kristy, 2010 Bride
I had a wonderful experience working with Angie and highly recommend her! Not only is her photography truly beautiful, she is very professional, has great communication skills, and is friendly and fun to work with. We worked together on a lookbook for my latest bridal jewelry collection and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Even though we organized it long distance, Angie immediately understood my vision for the photos and put so much time and attention into bringing it into reality. The images are breathtaking and I can’t thank her enough! -Ivy, 2014 Edera Jewelry Bridal Lookbook
Angie was so incredible! She was professional, very easy to work with and knew exactly where to be throughout the day to get amazing pictures of our wedding. I couldn’t be happier with the final pictures of our big day! She really captured the joy we felt that day in her photos.-Sarah, 2014 Bride
Angie is an awesome photographer! She has her own flair that other photographers just don’t have. Her work is so good, people have asked what she uses for photoshop, only, the photos are straight out of camera! Whatever you want, she will do it. I had a big list of things I wanted for my wedding, and when I got the photos, not a single thing was missing.-Christi, 2011 Bride
Angie is a wonderful photographer. She wasn’t intrusive at all (if you’re worried about that sort of thing). She gets amazing shots, beautiful moments, and catches great expressions from people. I am extremely pleased to have found her last year to photograph my wedding this past June 15th. She is affordable and well worth the investment!-Erika, 2013 Bride
Excellent Photographer!!! Couldn’t have asked for a better one!-Sarah, 2013 Bride
Angie was great to work with! She made us feel comfortable and had awesome location ideas. She was so sweet and the photos turned out beautifully! 🙂 –Kaitlyn, 2013 Client
