Great work + Professional Service = Happy Clients
Angela Jimenez is not only a superb and uniquely gifted photographer, she is also a lovely presence to have at a wedding. She was never intrusive or pushy, always protective of the proceedings and the wedding party. Her pre-wedding contact with us was professional and thorough and incredibly efficient. We loved having her at the wedding -- and the resultant photos are everything we could have dreamed of and more. We can't believe how many she took and she seems to have been everywhere at once. This was a wedding on our farm and she managed to be at the barn, on the hill, in the house, on the patio at all the right moments. All our guests commented on how terrific she was. And we will treasure the photos (which she sent to us on time!) I cannot recommend her more highly. Angela is an angel and a gem!

Angela is incredibly creative, utterly professional and detail-oriented, and generally astounding to work with. She is very very sensitive to surroundings and moods, and a truly great listener which enabled her to capture everything we said we wanted, and made her almost psychic during the event - she was everywhere, always at the right moment. Her photos are gorgeous and unique, not the typical cookie-cutter wedding photos. She was incredibly helpful in orchestrating the shots, and developing a strategy before the wedding so that it ran smoothly on site. Also, she is fun. Fun! Playful, respectful, relaxed, and filled us with a sense of ease at every stage, and especially during the shot-taking. I could not recommend her more highly. Did I say the photos are incredible? They're the best we've seen!

Angela is an AMAZING documentary style photographer and her work translates beautifully into wedding photography. She was super helpful throughout the day, catching everything we wanted and more, without ever being intrusive or with me having to say, can you get that shot. As a bride, I didn't have to think about a thing regarding pictures the entire day with Angela there to shoot every magical moment. And our pictures are beyond amazing. She captured every event, every stolen moment with grace and beauty. I can't imagine anyone else shooting our wedding and I can not recommend any of my vendors more highly than Angela. You would be lucky to have her "shoot" you!
Amy & Lisa
Angela photographed our very intimate wedding in a very public place, capturing both perfectly. A friend later said, "seeing your photos made me feel like I was there!" Angela is a rare breed, both a talented artist with vision and talent, and a consummate professional who accomplished every nuanced task effortlessly. She really "got us" and provided us with mnemonics that capture just the spirit we were going for. Everyone (and I do mean everyone) compliments us effusively on our beautiful wedding photography. I can give Angela my very highest recommendation.
Callie & Randy
It is hard to overstate what a good job Angela did photographing our wedding. She met with us beforehand to go over the sequence of events in the ceremony and the reception, and figured out how we wanted everything shot. The quality of the shots we got back was remarkable -- wonderfully arranged formal photographs, fun group shots, and lots of great perfect-moment shots of our friends and family. Importantly, Angela and her crew were a joy to deal with on the day itself, when we had a lot of other things to think about. I've been to a number of weddings where the photographers bark orders, or generally get in the way. Not Angela. While managing to capture every important moment, she did it completely unobtrusively, yet somehow was always right there when we wanted to catch a group shot with some of our friends or relatives. I can't stress enough how important this was. While finding a top-quality photographer is hard enough, finding one who really "gets" how to cover a wedding is really rare. We were delighted.

Angela is one of the most organized individuals I've had the pleasure of working with. Before I commited to her, we met and had a conversation about what I was looking for in a photographer. Her approach is very personal. She wants to get things just right. She's also very detail-oriented, which is great for a bride. She leaves no stone unturned. A month or so before the wedding she sent me a worksheet that required shotlist. That is great because the bride and the photographer can be on the same page about expectations. She's also very flexible and open to new ideas. I had an idea that she took and made it better than what I pitched. She takes your wedding day very seriously and the pictures reflect that. She's great at candid shots that show the emotion you may miss because you're in your own world and all the formal shots perfect. She's unbelievable thorough and personable. Her sense of humor fits in with any crowd and she deals with large groups of people, who are all excited and even drunk, smoothly. She worked with an assistant, who was just as friendly and efficient as she was. If there were more stars to highlight, I would highlight them all!
Simone & Kirk
I am amazed that you crafted such sincere artistry from complete chaos. You captured our family and we are indebted. I was amazed at how much your photos made me re-appreciate how lucky I am to have the family I have. Day in and day out chaos makes it easy to forget. You immortalized how much I love those guys so expertly - I have never viewed portraits as having that kind of utility.
Angela's compassion and understanding of the people and artists she captures on film translates to vivid, human portraits. She brings out the easy side of you. So hard to come by when you're not used to being in front of a camera! She brings out your personality and essence in ways you might not expect.

Promotional pictures are essentials for performers. Angela Jimenez brings her expertise as a photojournalist to every shot so even a simple headshot conveys a story. She is a talented artist who has the ability to capture the most subtle of nuances and turn the ordinary into something stunning. For the last 6 years Angela Jimenez is only the photographer I have trusted with my career.
Imani Henry, Playwright/Performer
You don't feel you are being "photographed," you're just having a conversation with a charming person. You aren't being asked to do this or to do that, but little by little you feel yourself loosen into being your most effortless self. That's when she clicks the shutter. When you see the results, you realize you've been well and truly "caught" by a remarkably sharp eye and a perfect sense of timing.
Jacques Jimenez, my father
I hired Angela Jimenez to photograph my 60th birthday party because I was familiar with her work from the NY Times and watched admiringly as she coaxed very nice photos out of and captured the beauty of my 18-month-old granddaughter and my 90-year-old Battle-of-the-Bulge-veteran neighbor and everyone in between, tap dancers, bus-driving painters, neighborhood eccentrics. One regret: I didn't hire a photographer to photograph her at work.
