Who I am
- Hi! I'm Dominique - owner of Dominique Angle Photography in Chattanooga, TN. I was born in Switzerland and lived there until my father wanted to return to the states when I was in middle school. To say that moving from Switzerland to the US as a pre-teen was an adjustment...is a bit of an understatement. I believe, though, that it has given me a unique view of the world...and an insatiable appetite for travel.
Photographs have always been a part of my life. My father was a hobby-ist who always made sure that my brother and I had film in our cameras. Because of that, it was only a matter of time before we both became photographers (my brother is a hobbyist specializing in wildlife and nature photography).
When I'm not behind the camera, I teach chemistry at the college level. I truly enjoy teaching and love, LOVE organic chemistry. However, I don't share the same enthusiasm for physical chemistry. Just saying!
- I believe in fairy tales. I believe in happy endings. I see beauty in everything. I believe that Monty Python has some true life lessons. I believe that a good cup of coffee can make your day. I also believe in telling stories as they unfold - be it a wedding or a family photo session or simply photos of your children.
My goal is to capture the moments: the fleeting looks between a bride-to-be and her almost husband, the spontaneous laughs between siblings, or the loving gaze of a mother to her child. Oh...and the belly laughs (my personal favorites!) These are the stolen moments that warm my heart. These are moment that I aim to capture.
My style can be both: like a fly on the wall or a bit bossy. Each one has it's time and place. When direction is needed, I offer direction; if standing back, watching moments and waiting for the right one, is needed, then I stand back. When I need to get something done, I get it done.

Note: Beginning in Janury 2018, the number of clients I accept will be limited, so that I can pursue more personal work.
