Hi friends! I'm Angela Stevens, owner and lead photographer of Juniper Studios. I relocated to Vermont from Massachusetts in 2018 and Juniper Studios was born here in Chittenden, Vermont. I've been photographing weddings since 2009 (previously operating as Angela Klempner Photography) in New England and beyond, and have over 200 weddings completed and in the books!
In November of 2016 I met the love of my life, Christian. We were engaged 10 months later, and married 4 months after that. We got married in our snowy front yard, just the two of us and our two best friends. Then we went for a jaunt on our snowshoes (yes, in full wedding attire) and ate waffles! We're working on turning our property into a homestead and we have a separate building here that houses the Juniper Studios office.
My work has brought me to far corners of the world, from South America to Greek Islands, and I've photographed weddings from the white sands of the Bahamas to the farmlands of Wisconsin. I absolutely love an adventure and I'm happy to consider any photographic request nationally or internationally.
I'm a follower of Christ, mama to Jack (born in January 2021), lover of farming, and cat mom to 2 rambunctious kitties, Tippy & Woodrow. We also have 3 chickens, honeybees, and will be adding ducks to the homestead soon!
The juniper tree thrives where not a lot of vegetation can. It's a resilient tree, a symbol of hope, with strong roots that sustain it no matter the conditions. Juniper has a unique look, an enduring sort of beauty. While I wouldn't have chosen to go through many of the things that I've faced, I'm grateful for the strength, hope, and compassion that the trials have produced deep within me. I see life with a renewed sense of vigor and it's my mission on this earth to capture moments, love, and joy through my lens.
I lost my dad when I was 23 and my mom when I was 25. I went through a long season of winter. But by the grace of God, I have emerged whole. My faith sustains me. My roots are strong and my branches are beginning to bear sweet, sweet fruit. I'm so excited to be living and working my dream of photography through Juniper Studios. I'd love to share more of my journey with you, just ask. :)
Welcome to Juniper Studios! As visual storytellers, we're excited to have the privilege of capturing your day. We thrive in any type of natural setting - farms, barns, mountains, orchards. We work to create organic, magical, sun-filled portraits. We're outdoorsy. We will hike with you through the woods, paddle out on your favorite body of water, sit backwards on the chairlift to photograph you coming up the mountain, or stand in a flowing river if it means getting the shot! We love weddings, we love the outdoors... we love outdoor weddings!
Your wedding is unique. It's emotional, it's joyful, it's authentic. We take pride in capturing the vibe of the day, communicating visually what it felt like to actually be there. We allow the moments to unfold in front of our lens, capturing events unobtrusively. Thank you for considering us, we look forward to hearing about your vision for your magical day!
