U.S. Navy Vet Wife | Boy Mama | Luxury Wedding Photographer.
My heart lives for the big events. I was always the girl sobbing over wedding and military coming home videos on youtube. I love the simple things in life, I love gifting, and I LOVE being included in life's most happiest moments.
I'm an enneagram type 3w2. 
Fun fact: I am a Licensed Medical Massage Therapist (but my passion is fully in Wedding Photography).
My ideal afternoon is happily accepting all the sticks and leaves my 2 year old brings me as gifts, the belly laughs from my 7 month old, and the nights with a comedy movie, some kettle corn, and snuggles on the couch with my hubby, Anthony. 

i'm angelique.

things I'm crazy about

My Top Ten

tell me more

Things really took off when my own photographer for my wedding allowed me to complete an apprenticeship under her. I purchased her old camera, my first real lens, and haven't put down my camera since. 

Things really took off, and the rest was history. (j.k. there's more...)

In high school, my boyfriend got me my very own Nikon camera for Christmas one year and I was HOOKED. I took pictures of anyone and everyone that would let me. I signed up for all the photography classes through high school and college that I could and eventually, started my own business.

In addition to photography and family, I have a few other interests:
1. Disney - I am the BIGGEST Disney freak. My husband's side of the family goes to Disney at least once a year. Within the next five years, I would love to become a member of the DVC family. My own son had his first Disney trip at 2 months old!

2. Breakfast food - One of my main cravings while I was pregnant was maple syrup. Turns out my son is also a breakfast person, as is my husband. I'm all about breakfast all the time. We even served "breakfast for dinner" at our wedding! Want to meet up to discuss photography plans? Suggest meeting for breakfast and I will be the happiest girl alive.
