"Angela was fantastic to work with. I can't remember the last time I had had photos taken of me, so I was a little nervous, but she had such an easygoing attitude and was committed to getting quality photos of me, so I highly recommend her. The outdoor location in Oakland was a good choice too."

"Angela was so professional from start to finish. Before the shoot, she was available to answer all of my questions on outfits and arranged a hair and make-up person. When I met her, she was so positive and enthusiastic, that she made me feel relaxed throughout the shoot. The photos are so flattering -- the best photos of me ever! My recommendation is to look no further -- you'll have a wonderful experience with Angela ??."

"I was really happy with Angela. She helped me through every step of the process from picking out which outfits to wear to making sure my hair was OK after I changed clothes! She picked a local park instead of her studio, which was nice. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. Thanks, Angela!"

About Me

Biography:

AGB has professionally photographed wedding and portraits for many years and currently owns her own boutique home studio in Castro Valley in the Bay Area. Angela specializes in people photography for all types of personal and business applications.

Outdoor portraiture is highly encouraged for dating profile portraits! Outdoor portraits of people are more "approachable" and casual in style. Angela is highly experienced in taking professional yet very natural photographs outdoors with natural light, which is lovely. In fact, most of my clients end up choosing to go with the outdoor look instead!

A former member of the Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area association and Wedding/Portrait Photographers International, Angela still pursues photographic excellence and strives to deliver the best possible product to her clients.

Comfort:

I begin every portrait session by sitting down with the client and talking with them about themselves. I like to get to know my customers first. While getting to know each other, we develop a rapport and build a connection which is important while photographing the client.

I enjoy smiling along with my customers and laughing with them during the sessions to help them feel more at ease. I understand how uncomfortable it is to be in front of a camera and I make every effort to put my customers at ease and help them to have a fun time.

I often get comments following the session like "That was so much easier than I thought it would be!" or "You made the experience so fun and comfortable!". Take a peek at the reviews...


My Education:

San Francisco State University. Bachelor Degree in Art, emphasis in Photography.

Academy of Art. Studied for several years while attending SFSU.

Golden Gate School of Photography. Completed 5 years of photography courses once a year since 2003.


My favorite locations:

Outdoor portraits utilizing my expertise and skill with natural light work very well for dating sites to convey casual portraits, not a contrived studio look. Outdoor portraits of people are more "approachable" and casual in style. I am highly experienced in taking professional yet very natural photographs outdoors with natural light, which is lovely. I have a few nice locations around the Castro Valley, Oakland and San Ramon neighborhoods. When we speak I will ask about your interests and make suggestions for the location based upon what would be best for you, the time of the session, etc.

Important Travel Info: I'm willing to travel up to 10 miles for a Look Better Online package from zip code 94546. Any additional miles would be $3.00 per mile (including round trip) payable to AGB in advance of the session day. Please note applicable bridge toll will be added to the fee, if required. If travel extends beyond 40 minutes one way, additional charges may apply.
