It was a real pleasure working with Angela! As I was sifting through search results for a Vancouver portrait photographer, Angela's work stood out to me the most. She has a talent for capturing natural emotion and creating a contemporary, dramatic feel in her photos. The workflow was great and responsive, from the initial email, to the call, payment, flexible scheduling, and quick turnaround. Highly recommend anyone check out her services. Thank you Angela!

Pixie | Family Portrait | June 2015

I've been wanting to capture three generations of our family for awhile now and finally had the opportunity to have everyone together this past summer. I knew Angela would be perfect for the task as she had done a marvelous job of taking photos of me in the past.  With endless patience and good humour, Angela made the whole family feel comfortable and relaxed resulting in a collection of beautiful photos that we will treasure in the years to come.

Book a consultation today to join the Legacy Collective, to tell your story through beautiful images for your family. Vancouver photographer specializing in contemporary, modern beauty portraits and head shot photography. Angela was fantastic to work with. I had a photo shoot done with my 8 month old son and now have a beautiful keepsake that we will cherish forever. Angela was very professional and wonderful with my son. Her photographs have an understated elegance that I find much more beautiful and timeless than the stock-photography type images that I've seen on social media sites lately. She has an eye for composition and lighting and is a very skilled editor. These photographs are works of art that will be passed on through generations, not used as profile pics and then forgotten.

The experience of having a photoshoot with Angela, was new and different for me. I rarely 'do' my hair or make-up and loved being pampered! I loved feeling beautiful and taking the time to document this stage in my life and my daughters life. I want to thank Angela, for putting us both at ease and allowing us to enjoy being the centre of attention and be pampered. Thank you for capturing us and allowing me to see myself as beautiful. You are an amazing photographer!

OMG Angela is such an amazing photographer. I came to Angela as I was in the middle of rebranding my business and needed new pictures to reflect not only the true me but also my new brand. Angela really delivered on what I wanted.

I normally never ever take full body picture or I am partly hiding if I do take one. For the 1st time in years, I actually liked the full body picture that Angela took of me. I even got lots of compliments. One of the pictures that she took got over 225 likes on Facebook in a really short amount of time.

Angela is such a professional and so great at what she does. I highly recommend that if you need any pictures done, that you contact Angela to do them for you. You will not be disappointed.

My photoshoot with Angela went very well. The whole experience from the start (make-up and hair) to the finish (posing for the headshots), was very enjoyable and memorable. 

Angela was very professional and friendly the entire time. My photos came out very well, showing me a side of myself, that was hidden from me as well!

I will be returning to Angela for all my head shot requirements and will definitely recommend her to others. Thank you , Angela!

I have been through a lot of changes since my first shoot with Angela, and she was the only person I wanted to capture them in a shoot. When I first shot with her I had been on HRT for about 6 months and was just becoming comfortable with my body. We created some really beautiful images.

A year later and I've had a few more “upgrades” that I wanted to give the full McConnell. I have had a breast augmentation, laser hair removal, a few minor facial tweaks and the rest is all thanks to hormone therapy. I’m a lot more confident in my body, and I think that really shows in the images Angela and her team created. I feel feminine, l feel happy, I feel powerful and I feel whole.

Working with Angela McConnell can be best described as an enjoyable and relaxed experience.  Each step of the way, you are given the appropriate posing guidance for the best results.  After a few minutes you feel like a natural, that her camera loves you and suddenly, you’re comfortable in your own skin!  You always feel that each photo you posed for was exceptional, and that is a huge confidence booster.  

Angela is a consummate professional without airs or pretence. She is a kind, sincere person and an incredible visual artist who lets the quality of her work speak for itself.  When you see the breadth of her portfolio and the consistency in her photographic style and editing, the choice will be clear.
