Today we’d like to introduce you to Angel Chau.
Angel, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve always had a knack for beauty- whether through photography, music, or writing. I love to photograph everything and anything. Looking back, I wished I had taken photography classes at college but in 2015, I enrolled in a black and white film photography class at Pasadena City College and introduction to Digital Photography and absolutely loved it. It was magical to take photos on film and develop them in the dark room and see the photos comes alive.
Personally, I’ve had a handful of friends who are professional photographers and I thought, “why not get paid for what I love to do!” I launched Angel Blessings Productions in January 2016 and now I specialize in family portraits. I teach Montessori preschool and I truly love engaging and interacting with the whole family.
Has it been a smooth road?
I would love to have more clients and my YELP reviews has helped me book several photography sessions. Every photographer has their own style and personality and I believe it’s important that the clients get along well with the photographer or else that experience might not be as fun or engaging. I do live in a huge city and there are so many talented photographers in Los Angeles, sometimes that intimidates me but it also challenges me to find my own style and voice.
So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Angel Blessings Productions story. Tell us more about the business.
I love to photograph people. I’ve photographed newborns to weddings but I primarily enjoy capturing my client’s family portrait sessions. Each session is unique and I come prepared to have a blast, even if it means taking ten-minute breaks and chase the kids around! I like to guarantee a certain number of photos and go above and beyond and provide more photos for my clients. I educate them and make sure they know these photos are a lifetime investment that will be passed down to future generations!
I grew up using a Canon camera but now I own a mirrorless Sony A7ii and several G master and Zeiss lens. The image quality is stunning and my clients love their photos as well!
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
There are so many techniques to be explored with natural light and also speed lights. This year, I’ve incorporated Magmod products into my photo sessions and it’s a lot of fun. Composite photos are one area that I could love to challenge myself but it does takes time and practice to produce an excellent photo out of many other photos.
