We love late nights, real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and the kind of dream clients way ahead of us when it comes to going on an adventure. If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make two new friends in the process, keep scrolling, We can't wait to meet you.

KANSAS CITY WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

View Our Work

Changing my hair, my kitchen adventures, dresses with pockets, movies based on the comics I read as a kid, being the "gamer" mom and my secret shame(s) - Game of Thrones, Vikings and (gasp) World of Warcraft. 

what I'm known for:

A true romantic at heart, Angela has the audacity to think she can change a person's life in the span of a few short hours. Whether she is the calm guiding light to a stressed bride on her wedding day, the instigator of smiles from the teen who'd rather not be in front of the camera or the confidence builder to the woman who thinks she could never do a boudoir shoot, Angela knows exactly how to connect with her clients on a personal level and create the most powerful images her clients have ever received of themselves. 

I'm a Southern girl with Mid-West roots raising a family in KC. You are definitely gonna hear me say "y'all" and you'd be correct to assume that I think sweet tea is liquid magic.

Owner | photographer | editor

We believe in kindness and compassion. We strive to see the good and infinite beauty possessed by every human being we encounter and then we capture that beauty and show our clients the most beautiful portraits they have ever seen of themselves. What I aim to do, as Hafiz once said, is "show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being!" 

We treat you like family.

what makes us different

William Faulkner once said, "Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories," and we agree. What better way to keep memories alive than through a photograph that captured the moment before it had passed?

We believe in heirlooms.

what makes us different

Highly recommend ARQ Studios! Angela and her husband were absolutely wonderful to work with! They were very professional and gave us ideas and listened to what we wanted and needed for both our engagement session and wedding day. They checked in with us and guided us through the process making it as stress free as possible. We couldn't be happier with the experience as well as the photos they provide! 11/10 would recommend!

Working with Angela was an absolutely incredible experience! She shot our wedding in May of 2018 and I am so glad we hired her! The photos she took were absolutely beautiful! Angela was super professional and helpful throughout the day. She has a very creative eye and it seems as though she can find the perfect shot almost anywhere! Angela truly listened to what we wanted and made it happen - and the final photos are stunning. If you're looking for a great experience and beautiful photos of your event, she's your girl!

"The final images
are STUNNING!"
