Hi! I’m Angela
Wife to Nathan, mama to Zachary, avid crafter, word puzzle fanatic, owner of Hello Sweetie Studios. I do everything business-related, from photography to videography, editing, managing...you name it, I've probably done it!
As the only child of a photo-happy mother, it was only fitting that I picked up a camera too. I also inherited my love of all things creative from my mom - I love paper-crafting, painting, singing, and baking. These days, though, my free time is consumed with exploring the outdoors, playing with trucks, and reading ALL the books with my little one (and dreaming up sets on which to photograph him!).
Hi! I'm Nathan
Videographer, photographer, equipment manager, and drone specialist of Hello Sweetie Studios (and Angela's sweetheart!).
I'm a tech guy - as a web developer, my work is constantly evolving and I'm always working with the latest and greatest on the web. With HSS, I love keeping up with the latest gadgets, and the best way to improve our workflow both on your wedding day and in post-processing. I'm an FAA Part 107 Certified Drone Pilot, so you'll get the best quality drone work from your event - weather permitting, of course.
I love football, making artisanal coffees and sourdough bread (I still want to be a chef when I grow up!), and spending time with the loves of my life - Angela and Zachary.
Best of DelawareVoted Best downstate portrait photographer
We were so grateful and thankful to be voted among the Best of Delaware 2022. Our little family business wouldn't be possible without our clients and fans!
How do you shoot weddings?
We love being involved in the planning of your wedding day. I send you a guide to help you organize your day to get the best moments for the couple photos, and the best light. Feel free to send me an invitation, and keep aside things that are special to you for details like jewelry, your invitation suite, handwritten notes, etc.
On your wedding day, I want to capture the feelings, mood, emotions, the calm and crazy moments, and all the details that make your wedding unique. Whether it's a traditional celebration with 200+ guests, or a laid back, intimate backyard party, we are here for you. There is always at least 2 members of our team present at all times on your big day, to capture all the moments.
Where are you based and do you travel?
We are based on the east coast in the first state - Delaware! We will travel wherever your wedding takes us, for a travel fee (this depends on the distance to be travelled - we are within driving distance of NYC, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. regional and international airports).
We love to travel and have updated passports for international travel!
Do you require a deposit?
We require a nonrefundable retainer for all services. This is due at the time of your signed contract, and holds your date on our calendar. This retainer is not refundable, but is transferrable once, should a situation arise that your original date needs to be changed.
Can I give you a shot list?
Yes and no. We welcome ideas for shots that are significant to you - you and your bridesmaids' matching tattoos, your grandfather's pocket watch on your bouquet, etc. However, if we're given a long list of specific shots, we can guarantee that a) we will miss something candid and significant by adhering strictly to a list, and b) not every shot/pose/idea works for every wedding. We want to serve our clients to our very best ability and we cannot do that with a long, detailed list.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 2-3 weeks for hourly sessions, and 4-6 weeks for weddings. You can download your photos from the gallery, but also share them, choose your favorites, and order prints!

The few fall Saturdays that aren't booked with weddings are spent doing our favorite things - picking apples, baking, watching and playing football, and spending time with family.
We offer studio sessions for cake smashes, limited edition holiday sets, themed birthday sessions, and more!
We love traveling, and often travel for sessions and weddings along the East Coast. However, check our schedule to catch us at other locations - in 2023, we will be in Florida, Canada, and more!
After Nathan realized Angela's love of photography, he encouraged her to put more time and energy into it, and lo and behold, a little business was born. Names for the business were thrown around - ultimately, Nathan came up with "Hello Sweetie Photography," after his love of Doctor Who, and calling Angela his sweetie! When the videography side of the business began to grow, Hello Sweetie Photography became Hello Sweetie Studios - to encompass all of the services we provide.
