On my first day of kindergarten, I told my mom I wanted to be a teacher. The wisdom of that moment has never left me. Life might have had different plans, but I’ve always known that teaching was my truest calling and how I want to contribute to the world.
Since leaving my home state of Michigan in 2009, I taught high school in my new home, Maui, for four years while doing photography on nights and weekends. In 2014, I left the classroom to become a full-time photographer.
In the last six years, I have launched two successful brands: Engaged on Maui, a service that helps couples plan and document their proposals, and Angela Nelson Photography, my Maui wedding photography business. Since then I’ve grown to have four photographers, an office manager, and an in-house photo editor. All this with a toddler at home and a newborn.
As a destination wedding photographer in one of the most iconic and beautiful places on earth, the only way my clients find me is online. Building a brand identity that showcases my talents has been a labor of love. My website, Instagram, and online presence have been honed and toned over the past six years.
Getting to teach you how to create an impactful and dynamic marketing presence, finding your unique brand and voice, and tapping into your ideal clients, how to position your business, is my opportunity to marry my love of photography and passion for teaching into one incredible framework.
