The best way to describe how I work at a wedding comes from my previous clients:
It was a pleasure to work with Angela. Not only is she a talented photographer, she was extremely supportive on the day of the wedding. It unexpectedly rained on my wedding day and I was very worried where we were going to do with our bride and groom photography.We had initially planned to do all the photography outside at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden. Angela however was so helpful in calming me down and coming up with a new plan. We started off taking photographs at the hotel that we were staying at (Hotel Shattuck). When the rain stopped, we continued on to the garden and took rest of the photos there. Angela even brought a large umbrella just in case it would rain again. It could have been a stressful day, but because Angela was so flexible and supportive, I had a wonderful time on my wedding day. We recently met with her to look at all the wedding photographs at her studio in Oakland, and they were all so beautiful. We are so glad that we decided to work with her. Yoonah & Arthur
My wife and I were married in the East Bay in August and were so fortunate to have Angela as our photographer. From start to finish, she was so pleasant, professional and fun to work with. Upon her encouragement, we met several weeks before the wedding where she walked us through the photography process and made several suggestions about how and when to get the best shots. Knowing that Angela was so thoughtful and prepared made us so much more relaxed on the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was such great company and made our whole wedding party very comfortable. Her experience showed as she managed to capture many beautiful photos without being intrusive on the ceremony or the reception. She moved efficiently through the planned shots so as to not interrupt the celebration. And, most importantly, her pictures were absolutely gorgeous. She delivered them to us promptly and made any requisite touch-ups to make our day look even more perfect.
I highly recommend Angela’s work to any couples exploring options for photographers in the Bay Area. Kyle & Elise
Angela was so wonderful to work with! She really gave a lot of her time and expertise into helping make our photos and our day turn out great. She was comfortable to work with and she really listened to what we wanted and helped to make these ideas work. She also offered some great suggestions and ideas in areas where we needed some guidance. We just received our album, and with Angela’s help really truly have the story of our day. We would definitely recommend Angela to anyone looking for one of the best. Renee & David
Angela is great! Once all our photo’s were done, she blended in with the guests so well, we didn’t even see her taking pictures for the rest of the wedding. Her pictures are fantastic, and she’s really personable and easy to work with. Tiffany & Michael
Angela was very down to earth and willing to worked with us happily and effortlessly at the wedding. There was a photo she forgot to take and she made sure to work it into our after wedding photo session so that we had lasting memories. I think it is hard to find a good photographer that you are comfortable with but Angela felt like family. RaLinda & Vince
We can not say enough about the quality and quantity of photographs Angela took at both our Engagement session and on our Wedding Day. We could go on and on about what we loved about her artistic style, but one look at Angela’s photographs and you will see what you will get. Angela’s flexibility allows her to work with you and give you what you want, whether it be in deciding what portraits she will take at the wedding or helping you design your wedding album. Although she did all the work, we felt like we had a say in all aspects of our wedding photography. Angela was not only responsive in giving us what we wanted, but she was prompt in answering our questions and concerns. Angela gave us comfort in knowing that we could trust her, and she did not disappoint us. Of all the things we had to worry about in planning a wedding, photography was not one of them thanks to Angela!
We are very pleased with how well our photographs tell the story of our wedding day. Angela captured every moment, yet looking back on our wedding day we can’t remember seeing her or her cameras. We have received nothing but compliments from our guests about Angela’s friendliness, patience when gathering everyone for portraits, and great photographs from our wedding.
Angela’s friendly personality, creative eye, nonintrusive style, and technical expertise make her an outstanding choice as a wedding photographer. Angela is a true artist. Jeremy & Renae
Angela did a phenomenal job capturing the most cherished memories from our wedding! And most importantly, she was near invisible to our guests, which resulted in a series of candids that are absolutely priceless. The photographs are truly works of art. Kim & Tom
Angela’s skill as a professional photographer is beautifully reflected in our photos from the engagement portfolio to the wedding album. She captured the true essence of our wedding day which we will always cherish. The wedding albums she prepared for us and for our parents are truly a work of art. Kaarin & Michael
Angela is terrific! She’s not just a great photographer, but also a wonderful person and friend. She is able to tune in to the personality and mood of whoever she’s working with, and that really shows through in her work. Her photographs aren’t just pictures, she truly captures the moments, the memories, and the feeling of the day. Whenever we look back at our wedding album, it feels like we’re right there in the midst of our wedding day, experiencing it all over again. It’s as if she was everywhere at once, not a moment missed. Also, she was extremely easy to work with and helped make our entire experience very special. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture one of the most important moments of our lives! Thank you Angela! Adrienne & Daniel
What a difference the right photographer makes… AGB Photographics was a godsend! My husband and I were working with a tight financial budget, yet didn’t want to sacrifice the quality of our wedding photography. We really lucked out when AGB Photographics was personally recommended to us by another photographer. Angela Gail Banchi made us feel at ease with her warmth and professionalism, and was flexible to our needs both financially and artistically. We knew we’d made the right decision after seeing the results from our complimentary engagement photo shoot. She made us look great and the pictures reflect our personalities, whether the pictures were posed or spontaneous. She was a pleasure to have at the wedding, and perfectly captured so many of the special little moments that would have otherwise been lost. We are getting constant compliments on her photography, even some from those who spent far more money on another photographer and wished they’d used Angela instead. I have already recommended her to several friends. She is worth every penny! Alex & Kristen
