Angela Cappetta

Forget the staged photo ops — Cappetta’s shots have a vibrant rawness that is rare among wedding photographers, and she manages to capture the spirit of each couple she shoots. She’s at her best when using film (which she develops herself), but her singular style comes through in digital as well. She speaks four languages and is always game for a destination wedding. Full-day packages start at $8,000. Special rates for City Hall weddings start at $1,500.
