Hi! I'm Angela Lauterbach, a Certified Professional Photographer with over 25 years of experience. Hold on, certification doesn't mean that I am no fun. Working with me is a collaborative blast! My talent would be nothing without your wonderful stories to tell.
The first thing people learn about me is that I’m happiest when I’m of service to others. Before each session I’m always so grateful!
For me, being able to provide images of the most important, touching and special times in your lives is part talent and part passion. Creating beautiful images for you to share with your family and friends is something I love. Every session is unique and deserves my best efforts at creativity while telling your story, and that is my passion. My goal at events and weddings is to be there without being noticed and to capture those fun and emotional moments without being a distraction.
My photography has authenticity and is expressive, just like love. My style is a mix of story-telling and lifestyle photography. You'll find that I'm eclectic in everything.
I serve Minnesota, Southern California and Texas as a Lifestyle Photographer specializing in Seniors, Weddings, Families, & Events. Let's make your memories!

What My Clients Say
Wondering How Sessions Work?
First, I’ll want to know a little about you and let you know a little about the session, the gallery, how to order your prints and digital files. We’ll agree on what’s best for your needs and then we can book your session.
You can start the ball rolling anytime by calling : 507-413-2961 or emailing angela @ ael-photo.com
I’ll ask you to either book online, send me further information or to come and visit with me so I am completely clear on what’s going to be best for you. The session fee is all we’ll need to start creating.
Once we’ve decided on a date, we book your session.
Most of the time I prefer to work outside in the glorious Minnesota and Texas sunshine between 8 am to 11 am or between 5 pm and 8 pm. Those times of day give the best light and make location shooting much more fun. I use three hour sessions, so we have plenty of time for wardrobe changes and possibly a location or two.
Once we’ve gotten your gallery images in camera, I’ll do some basic editing and cropping and place 25-40 images in your online proofing gallery. From these you’ll select your favorites and share them with me online. If you’d rather go over them together in person, that’s great too. I’ll ask you to pick a time on the calendar to do that with me. Usually I have your proof gallery up within a week of your session.
Whether you choose online or come to the studio to make selections, you’ll have about two weeks to view and decide on the images you’d like to order. Once we’ve made our list of your 3, 5, 10 or 25 photos, I begin to work my magic.
NOTE: Images are only sold in blocks of 3, 5, 10 and 25.
When we meet to discuss your order, you can then choose to order a Print Folio book, a Signature Album or an 11×14 Gallery Print to feature your images. Every home and family is different, so let’s find the option that works best for you.
Your session is shareable with my mobile app that is included with your final online gallery. You’ll love being able to share and enjoy your images while your is printed! The lab needs usually about 10-14 days to finish your hand-made books, albums and Gallery prints. From Session to Art in under 6 weeks is my goal.
I can’t wait to give you and your family the most beautiful photos to love and share for generations.

I’ve long believed that talent, passion and practice are the basic hallmarks professionalism. When I decided that I wanted to offer my talent and passion in photography to others as a business service, I knew I’d need a network of others to practice with and to grow with. So, I am a m a member of WPPI, PPA, NAPCP and Fearless Photographers. I also work closely with a close-knit group from Click’n Moms. These associations offer the industry’s best in peer-learning, juried critique, conferences and online communities. Being a member is one thing – participating and growing is up to the photographer who joins. I make it a large point of my business to make sure I take every chance to hone my skills and find new ways to express what I love about my work: my love of service and my adoration for my clients.
