About Me, Angela Divine


I get asked a lot about my middle name, and it actually runs in my family.   My grandmother was Divina, she passed the name Divine onto my mom, and my mom passed it onto me.  

I studied painting and photography at UW Madison and came home after four years of college with an internship at a photo studio.  These photographers shot airplanes, cars, windows, and even meatballs, which on a photo set are not real- do not try them.... they aremade out of putty.

I loved the experience but felt the commercial world was inauthentic.  The studio I worked for barely photographed people, and when they did, there was hair, makeup, and pinning of the clothing, nothing felt real.  One day, I told my bosses that I felt like everything was staged and fake.  They laughed and welcomed me to the world of advertising, but also suggested I try weddings and lifestyle sessions, so I found a mentor and dug right in.

I love working at weddings because nothing is staged.  All the emotions are raw, and I love being a part of them.  I feel like I'm doing something of purpose and value, which is the same reason I also offer personal brand photography.

Working with entrepreneurs who are trying to help their audience inspires me.  My photography takes on a deeper meaning when an author or life coach uses my photo in a post that connects them to a new follower who needed to be cheered on or encouraged.  

Photographing authentic stories is what drives me to wake up and pick up my camera day after day.  

A few other things about me:   

 I’m a 90’s child.  My first CD was the Free Willy soundtrack (I loved that Michael Jackson song) followed by TLC’s Crazy, Sexy, Cool.   Also a huge fan of all things Nickelodeon, Nintendo (my dog is named Zelda and my husband and I have matching Triforce tattoos), and Harry Potter.

I have been teaching yoga for over a decade!  I teach a couple of classes a week because it keeps me grounded.

Still here?  If you made it this far and you're feeling my vibe, let's connect. We may have a lot in common!  Scroll to the end of the page to get in touch.
