One of my best friends is leaving for her Hawaiian honeymoon (her wedding was in October, but she and her hubby deferred their big trip until this summer) in July, and I couldn’t be ANY more jealous. If there’s anything I love more than a stunningly-beautiful flower arrangement, it’s anything photographed in Hawaii. And I’ve never even been there, side note. The island is just pure magic, and when you couple that natural beauty with a couple so electrically in love, you basically hit the trifecta of perfection.Well, it’s hard to imagine there being any non-gifted photographers in paradise, waking up to ☀️ every day, I’d probs be a shooting savante too. But Angie Diaz
is in a class all of her own, because her talent for capturing love stories in their truest, rawest, most palpable forms is unwaveringly unmatched.
Make sure you check out her full portfolio for all the incredible inspo!
Before we entrance you with all of the gorgeousness of her wedding + engagement galleries, we thought you should get to know her a bit first… Disclaimer, though, you probably only need to read this one honest and glowing bride testimonial to understand the depth of her gifts.
From one happy bride who decided to take a shot
“After seeing the cliff shot, I knew we had to book Angie as our photographer. She was the reason we decided to elope in Maui. In a leap of faith, we booked Angie a year and half in advance and started planning an elaborate wedding for two without ever having been to Maui or meeting any of our vendors in person until the week of our wedding.”
If you can make the decision to elope to Hawaii, solely because you fell in love with some photos, then your photographer must be a 🦄. And hearing Angie describe her passion for her profession, you might wonder if she really is ✨.
A few notes about her style
- She lives for color and the absence of it; color talks to her like poetry speaks to a poet. Together with textures, color is what takes her breath away. ((we must think so, too, because her sandy beach and turquoise water shots are save-the-date worthy, and some👇!))
- She has a passion for capturing color and emotion in the most beautiful way to tell one-of-a-kind love stories.
- She is the sole shooter and takes pleasure crafting the couple’s images from start to finish. It’s always her, from the first click till the hours and hours she tears up from behind her desktop - pouring over each and every frame.
And what we really love about Angie
She has a great glossary of places in Maui where she loves to shoot. And, more importantly, knows REALLY well. This is a huge plus for couples who are trusting in her to photograph their big day (engagement session, day-after love session). By taking a peek at Angie’s preferred shooting schedules and most-loved locations, couples can get a sense of the private properties (like Haiku Mill), public beaches, and naturally sublime scenes where they can say their ‘I Dos.’All of the wedding adventures Angie has in her portfolio are different, but there’s one thing that can’t be overlooked. She has an understanding of color that is OUT OF CONTROL, especially when you consider how artful and meticulous her black and white edits are.
Booked a photographer, gained a good friend
“I have a lot of friends who had a lot of good things to say about their photographers but I literally want to be Angie’s best friend! I wish I could just hire her to follow me around and take our pictures of my life and keep me entertained! Anyone reading this has most likely seen her pictures and already knows that every one of her pictures is exquisite and magazine worthy. What you need to know beyond the fact that you will absolutely 100% love your pictures is that Angie herself is so fun to be around! She’s hilarious and disarming which helped my husband relax and actually enjoy himself, she’s energetic and acts like a dream wedding guest! The friends of ours that actually made it out to Maui for our destination wedding are already asking for her information for their upcoming weddings (some are not even engaged yet!). I could go on all day about this amazing and talented woman, if your thinking of hiring Angie and like me pictures are the most important part of you day besides actually getting married then look no further!”
Oh, girl, you have a way of making us feel 😍😍😍
