Artistic Documentary Weddings

Based out of Portland, Oregon, Angela Holm travels the country and abroad specializing in artistic documentary wedding photography.

She approaches your wedding with your personal experience in mind. Angela will tell your story through photographs in a way that you will treasure forever.


The first thing you should know about me…

I am a wedding photographer who is a storyteller at heart. I strive to know every person I work with and record the beauty of their lives in pictures. I favor a journalistic style in creating images that speak of the moments in your life, big or small, poignant and serendipitous.

My approach to weddings is simple: I am not there to check off a list of standard and typical wedding photos. I find that a boring approach to wedding photography and I imagine you do too. I create images that record the unique joy you experience, favoring serendipitous moments that will never happen again. I work in a calm, detail-oriented and unobtrusive fashion. In the right moments, I love collaborating to make pictures with you, not just of you.

The photographs I make strongly focus on emotions and moments - a collection of images exclusive to your wedding. In contrast to the increasingly impermanent nature of photography today I fashion tangible artifacts and heirlooms in the form of fine art prints and albums that will be a part your family history for generations to come.

I currently live and work in Portland, Oregon. I have photographed all around this beautiful state and beyond for clients. Get in touch with me! You make the memories, and I'll turn them into photographs that you can experience forever. We'll make a great team.

Angela was amazing on our wedding day! We had met her only a few days before our wedding; but she was more than we could ever hope for. Our images are amazing and we are so happy with the whole experience. Angela went far and above with finding a guitarist to play during the ceremony with finding out last minute we could not have amplified music at the location of our wedding!
Angela has a great eye and we would have no hesitation recommending her to other couples for their special day.

I have so many good things to say about Angela and her photography! First I have to talk about the serendipity of our finally meeting. Angela and I lived in the same building in Northwest Portland for years without ever getting introduced! I moved down to the waterfront and work in St. Johns. When I was researching photographers for our ceremony I was hitting a wall, most studios had a minimum of time for shooting a wedding, usually at least 6 hours! Ours was going to be a very intimate shindig, 10-12 people including us and the judge, so we didn't need 6 hours of a photographer's time. I then had a stroke of brilliance and went in to Blue Moon Camera to get a recommendation, and got in touch with Angela. What a perfect match! She is so easy to work with, flexible, and understood intuitively the kind of pictures we were hoping for. We immediately got along like gangbusters, felt perfectly comfortable and at ease. And the results are perfect!

I am SO glad we hired Angela Holm as our wedding photographer! When we did our engagement photo session it was wonderful! She was extremely accommodating on the time and location (she let me pick a spot that was special to us). She pre-scouted the area so when we got there, she already had photo ideas in mind. And she incorporated the architecture of the area into the photos, which I love! She was super friendly, and made us feel totally as ease, which made for very natural photos! Overall it was a very special, memorable, and fun experience! I can't wait to see how our wedding photos turn out!

I’m so happy we had Angela with us to document our engagement and wedding! She is professional, creative, easygoing and fun. She really knows how to direct a photo session and is not afraid to experiment to get memorable shots. Taking our engagement photos was a blast! She is also refreshingly detail-oriented, and kept in great communication with us from the day we started working with her. We were so thrilled with how the final photos came out. Angela really captured the joy of our wedding day. I would recommend her a thousand times over!

We contacted Angela to photograph our beach wedding during the solar eclipse in August 2017. Angela went above and beyond traveling to the site from her home in Portland and spending two days with our wedding party. We got both beautiful wedding photos and also some once in a lifetime eclipse romance photographs. Angela, is easy to work with, has a great social demeanor, and took a cadre of stunning photographs. After reviewing her photos we went a step further and had her make photo books for all members of our families. If you are in the NW and need a great photographer she should be high on your list!

Here's to life, love, and making memories!

Insights Q&A

Q: How can I book you!?

A: Let’s meet up over appetizers or grab a tea and you can tell me all about your wedding and ask me all your questions! Then if we click we will move onto the details of the photo agreement. Half down secures me for your wedding day. Remember tho it’s a non-refundable deposit since I am saving that important day for only you! (This will all be stated in the photo agreement).

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: I accept, cash, credit, checks, the cash app and paypal.

Q: Are you willing to do payment plans?

A: We can chat about this as long as you can pay the half down upfront to secure the date.

Q: Can I add hours on to a package so that I can have you photograph longer?

A: Yes! Most definitely. You can decide that up front or the day of the wedding.

Q: What if I only want digital files and not an album?

A: Since I believe these moments are worthy of lasting a lifetime and beyond, I would encourage you to ponder on that as well. Digital files can be fleeting, forgotten, and ever changing. An heirloom album and museum quality prints are lasting. I am invested in you getting not only quality photos but also lasting memories of the occasion. So in the case you only want digital files, let’s go sit down, talk over a cup of tea, and let me convince you of the value of making your wedding memories tangible and we can go from there.

Q: Do I get to choose the photos that would be in my Album?

A: Yes, of course! I design an album layout with the images from your wedding celebration. Then over a nice bottle of champagne we look at a live preview of the entire album. It’s a really special day! It will be the first time you view all of your images so it’s like reliving your wedding but also getting to see things you have never seen before. Since you were living in the moment while I captured everything that was also going on around you! It’s very emotional and exciting for you. After the initial viewing we can make changes and make it perfectly fitting to your desires.

Q: Can you tell me more about the albums?

A: Of course! Your heirloom album will be handcrafted in by artisans in Italy. You are able to choose between a combination of the different papers, selective coating with custom effects and printing on art mattes which allows us to obtain an album unlike anything before. The cover is leather, unless you prefer otherwise. Color choices are yours. These album invites your personalities to completely shine through.

Q: What are your “Add Ons”?

A: Here is a general list of items that can be added on to your package!

  • Artistic Bridal Portraits (studio or on location)
