Indianapolis Wedding Photographer and Artist bio picture
  • Professional Wedding Photographer | ANGEL CANARY

    I am always honored when a bride and groom chooses me to document their wedding day. Capturing their moments, details and portraits on one of the happiest days of their lives gives me bragging rights - I do have the best job in the world. Just being surrounded by all of that love and joy is an emotion that cannot be described with words. I have been extraordinary blessed that I get paid to travel around the country capturing love with my camera. From Boston, to New York, to Chicago, to Texas and all the way to California and beyond - my clients live all across this great country.

    I have a gorgeous photography studio located close to downtown Indianapolis - full of natural light and a lot of simply lovely props.

    My Quote.

    "I am young enough to have fun & enjoy life, old enough to know life is too short to waste and not leave a mark in this world." Angel Canary

    "The moments of joy, love & beauty captured in a photograph will outlive our lifetime, but in it, we live on forever." Angel Canary

    The Skinny.

    I'm obsessed with Kate Spade (their crazy marketing gets me every time) - love all things fashion and dare I say, girly. Sephora receives half of my income but don't tell my husband. I am workaholic and coffee is my best friend. Ice cold bottled Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino to be exact. I love my home gym and staying active. I have a craft room that I use more for client branding than anything - but if you ever need ribbon I likely have over 200 spools on hand. And Pinterest - okay, I'm not even going to admit how much I adore this site... I'm crazy eclectic - my objects of affections can be light and airy and pastel and equally bright bold color makes my heart skip a beat. This is fabulous for my line of work because I'm versatile, but horrible for my cute little mint blue Kate Spade pocket book with a bow on it as it really gets me in trouble when shopping, ha!

    The Story.

    I have been an artist (yes, I can paint and draw and have statewide awards for my art) and a photographer of some sort for most of my life. Alas, my teachers always kept most of my artwork to show future students, but the photos I took for the yearbook staff starting at age 10 will forever live on in print. I was educated as a child and all of my years in school, in gifted magnet schools that were specialized for children that were gifted as well as artistic. My teachers shaped my life and have made me what I have become today - and for that I owe them my life. Teachers carry a special place in my heart.

    I have captured hundreds of love stories over the years and I live, breathe and dream about weddings and photography. It's my passion.

    I like to say I get to play dress up with the girls in the studio, so I love to collect, design and sew various types of fashion clothing - not excluding adult sized tutus.

    I am blessed that I can share my love of art and photography with the world, and I am thankful that the world lets me.

I always like to start with how much of an honor it is to even be considered to capture a bride and groom’s special day! I have captured hundreds of love stories, and I cannot imagine doing anything other than documenting love. There is no greater joy than to know that I presented a couple with photographs that will show their love for each other and that they can share those memories with their children, their grandchildren and for many generations to come. That is just an amazing blessing.

I am an Indianapolis wedding photographer with a studio based in historical downtown. I specialize in Wedding Photography, and travel and work world wide. My focus is on weddings and engagement sessions. I also love to photograph boudoir (perfect for the brides to be) – editorial and fashion commercial portraits during the off season (aka when I have free time).

I love photographing outdoors – outdoor ceremonies are one of my favorite types of weddings! I also love working at fabulous hotels like the Omni, Columbia Club and the JW Marriott (but I still like going outdoors for portraits).

I am a lover of natural light and my portfolio reflects my love of light in photos. I swoon over the little details of the day – from the wedding shoes to the invitations to the reception decor – I love to photograph each and every detail.

You will notice that I vary in my style from gorgeous airy pastels to rich and bold colors. This is always dependent on our clients and the style of their wedding details.  I am extremely eclectic and versatile. This is perfect for my job, but it does get me into a little bit of trouble when shopping …

I am a horrible blogger – usually this is the result from a lack of time to blog properly.  I am not one to not give 100% of myself to my work, so blogging is last on the list of things to do.  Delivering hand edited photos to my clients are priority before updating my blog (aka journal). Clients are told at booking that I do not blog everything that I shoot nor do I blog often.  I do like to update it over the winter, so be sure to check back during the months of January through March as that is when I take off from wedding season and have the time to sit back and journal for your viewing pleasure.  If you have reached this blog and would like to view my work, the best site for that would be www.angelcanary.com.  

My clients are happy, joyful and full of love. Their beauty radiates from within. My clients always trust my sense of judgement with light and locations and especially the timeline and let me do what I do best to capture their love story.

I offer all day event coverage to ensure that I photograph all of the bridal and wedding day details, portraits, formals and all of the many, many moments in between on the wedding day – giving my clients a complete documentation of their wedding day.  

I have traveled across the nation photographing events – however there are still a few places that I haven’t traveled to or would LOVE to visit again – Oregon, Utah, Colorado, New York, California, Florida, New Mexico, Washington, Lafayette, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas, Michigan, South Bend, Arizona, Hanover, Louisiana, Illinois, Wyoming, Boston, Nevada, and Hawaii to name a few (hint hint).
