Lauterbach Photography

Angela ... is the brain-child of me, Angela Lauterbach, a Certified Professional Photographer with PPA.  Certification doesn't mean that I am no fun.  Working with me is a blast! My style is a mix of story-telling and lifestyle photography and I'm eclectic in everything. I serve Minnesota and Texas as a Lifestyle Photographer specializing in Seniors, Weddings, Families, & Events.  Let's make your memories.  


All Weddings, Senior, and Family Sessions come with a mobile app which lasts a year from when I send you the link. Share the link with anyone – installs are unlimited.


I’m passionate about providing everyone the ability to be in wonderful photos. Having a photo of yourself, your family or your wedding that you love is an extraordinary feeling. Paying for it should not be. We can break the cost out to four months for Seniors and twelve  months for Weddings.  Book with these links if you’d like to use this service.


I offer design for your invitations, cards and announcements. Cards are flat, 2-sided, color and 5×7. The generous 5×7 size makes the card fridge-door worthy!



I can meet you at your favorite spot or we can work in the studio. I serve the metro areas of Minnesota’s Twin Cities as well as Dallas, Amarillo, Austin and Houston Texas.


Working with me means you are hiring a passionate artist who is a PPA Certified Professional Photographer.  I am insured and bonded in MN and TX. I continually work on technique and artistry. My products are marketplace proven winners and I work only with those vendors who will guarantee products.

What My Clients Say

  • “Angela is a wonderful soul. Working with her was so simple, easy and affordable. We had 12 children at the session and she handled them with such ease. We loved our photos, they are dreamy and beautiful. Book her. You’ll love her.”

  • “Angela manages a real balance between professional and part of the background. She took care of things we were too busy to think about and I have to say, she did it all with a smile. At times we forgot she was there, but the photos tell us she noticed it all. Right down to tiny details – her eyes are so able to notice the slightest thing! We enjoyed her southern charm and hospitable nature. She made everyone comfortable and fit right into things in our family. That made the day all that much easier! We can’t say enough about her. We really can’t. We loved working with her and recommend her very highly. “

  • “Angela went above and beyond to capture all the little details and joy that took place on our big day. With her sense of humor and respect for what she does she always put me at ease when I would start to get the jitters. Many times photographers have to act as wedding coordinators and the flow of the day can often depend completely on them. Angela was personable, professional and reliable, not to mention a blast to work with on our wedding day! We have gotten so many compliments on our photos and absolutely love them all! Angela is super flexible and willing to try new, exciting things to make your photos great. She took us to new locations though out downtown Minneapolis for our wedding shoot so that we could have the city skyline in our special day. The best part of having Angela as a part of our wedding, aside from feeling like we were working with a close friend, was that we had so many people tell us how fun our photographer was and how she treated them so well. Not to mention she’s the sweetest most accommodating individual I’ve ever met! THANK YOU!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

  • “Angie was really great at taking pictures of everything to capture the day. She was also available to talk prior to the wedding to get an idea of what my husband and I were like (personality wise) so she could get pictures that best reflected who we are.”

  • “Angela really took time to get to know what we wanted. Our style is not main-stream and we wanted our photos to have a very individual feel. She managed to get all we had asked for into our book. We wanted a modern thank-you gift to give to guest. She suggested a phone app our guests could download with pix from the day. It was so awesome! She gave us a link and we put it on the thank you cards. Our favorite pix are right in our phones! Our friends and family love it! Angela really is a cool chick and a great artist. We enjoyed having her there!”

  • “I had no idea that photography was going to be so much of my wedding budget. I was really surprised. When I called around and emailed several different photographers and studios I noticed that many won’t send a price list and that many won’t allow galleries on the web. I was really disappointed! Angela was forthright and honest and straight-forward. She’s got very simple pricing and offers a wonderful value. Our wedding was the last time that my grandmother was with the family. Now we have the group photos and the candids and the album and she’s in all of them. I’m blown away. My husband wanted me to tell you all that she’s good about being quick and natural with the couple photos and that she was easy to understand when she gave directions.”

  • “We got Angela’s information from a friend who met her at a wedding they attended. Our friends said she was really sweet and a hard working person. What an understatement. I don’t think I saw her sit down unless it was to get photos from the ground. We enjoyed not having anything to worry about in terms of photography. She communicated with the other vendors to coordinate schedules and photos without interrupting anything except to confirm and make sure we were all on the same page. She made the most lovely photos of the wedding day and our now blended family. I will treasure them forever.”

  • “What we loved about Angela is her flexible nature and her eclectic style. She works to include details and elements that make the images tell the story as you view them. We almost regret hiring a videographer because the slideshow we got from her was so complete. She has online galleries that you can share with guests. Nobody does that. I really appreciated it because we have so many relatives who just don’t travel well anymore. Angela’s work and integrity and quality are worth every cent. We ordered an album from her and the design she created for it is very pretty. We are thankful we found her. We are looking forward to using her for our newborn photos in the coming year!”

  • “Our day was very hectic (delayed planes and traffic delays) but Angel didn’t get flustered at all and she kept the pace of thigns really stress-free. Our photos weren’t “posey” or stiff. She has a way with kids, too. If you have the chance to book her – DO IT.”

  • “Angela is thoughtful. Her storytelling is pretty and has a quality that other people can’t grasp. She sees thigns nobody else does. She’s so helpful and has wonderful ideas. Also, she isn’t going to “sell” you anything. What you buy is what you spend. No UPSELLING. It’s so stress-free.”
