Anna Blige Photography
I don’t know how she did it, but Anna captured our day so artfully and creatively and so vividly all at the same time, she gave us something to remember just how to day felt, not just what it looked like. There’s so much joy and love in our photos, and I know I'll love having them for a very, very long time. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she was also very sweet, accommodating, and easy to work with! Thanks Anna - you crushed it!!
Travel is one of the things that inspires me the most creatively, and I’m always planning my next adventure. No location is off my grid.
I love elopements - they’re so intimate, sweet, and beautiful, and one of my favorite things to photograph. If you’re thinking about eloping with your love, let me know! I offer special packages for elopements and smaller weddings.
Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I’m a photographer with a love of documentary style imagery, natural light, and telling stories through images. I always want my photographs to convey feeling and emotion, especially love – the beauty of it, the joy of it, the closeness and vulnerability. I believe love is worth celebrating and cherishing, and documenting a million times over. I find so much meaning in creating images that my couples will be able to feel for a lifetime.
Why do you want to work with APW couples?
I love working with diverse couples who don’t necessarily follow all of the wedding industry conventions, but like to create their own celebrations to express their very own, unique versions of love. APW couples understand the importance of inclusion and authenticity, and they appreciate the power of a photograph to capture something deeply meaningful about a moment in time.
What is your artistic approach to weddings?
My shooting style is documentary, with a strong focus on storytelling. I love creating genuine images and capturing the tiny, real moments that are so meaningful.
Weddings are very personal and intimate events, and I think your photos should reflect that. I’ll never, ever make you do those awkward prom photo poses. Instead, I take the time to get to know you and your partner, and give you the time to grow comfortable in front of the camera. I want the two of you to shine by being yourselves!
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I love hiking, all dogs, the world’s ever chaining landscapes, and relaxing at the end of the day with a good glass of wine.
While planning our wedding, we really valued the importance of having a great photographer. Photography is really the only thing that will last when the day is over, and we wanted to have something beautiful and meaningful from our wedding years down the line. Finding a photographer is difficult though! Many really good ones are fully booked years in advance, and have entirely inaccessible prices. A lot of the wedding photography portfolios we looked at were are a tad cliche. Anna’s portfolio really stood out to us, and we got lucky and a he was available for our date! She was sweet and easy to work with, and took the time to learn about us and our wedding plans. She did a great job on the day of our wedding, and most importantly, we could not be happier with our photos. They’re spectacular. She captured us, our guests, and little details of the day so genuinely and beautifully, and combined all the photos together to tell a whole story. We’ll definitely be recommending her to friends and family! Everyone should have photos this beautiful in their home.
None, the whole process of working with Anna was great.
