About

Hi, I'm Andy

If you are reading this then I must have managed to grab your attention and you are looking for a wedding photographer. First of all, a huge CONGRATULATIONS! 😍🥂🍾

My Approach is 99% NON-POSED (documentary), however, I find most of my clients want some couple shots and a few like the creative ones. I am easy, whatever works with you, works with me.

I am based in the Home Counties but travel all over the UK so your wedding venue is no problem for me to get to. If you are far away I will stay overnight locally and there is no extra cost in this for you. Planning can be in person or if miles away, via Skype.

I tend to photograph weddings on my own but I know some couples love a few thousand extra photos of them and their gusts having fun so if you want two of me, thats fine and I can dip into my pool of talented friends. I offer albums and all of the other extras should you want them.

I wouldlove to find out more about your big day and to find out if we are a good fit so please get in touch.

My wedding pricing for a full day is simple:

Full day coverage includes:

Because the wedding begins before the ceremony and continues long after the first dance, I offer unlimited hours of shooting time as your main photographer.

Unlimited pre-wedding consultation to get to know you both and discuss all your plans, be it an in-person coffee, wine, beer or skype (although I always insist on meeting in person if possible). You will have my undivided attention and care from the outset to make sure everything goes the way you want it to. I have plenty of tips to help the day run as smoothly as possible and will make myself available for any advice and help you need throughout the planning process.

500+ individually selected and professionally edited images by me.

Full unlimited license to download, print, and share all your photos – you just can’t edit or sell them.

Web gallery + download of both high resolution and low resolution images with a store feature to order prints to share with friends and family.

An online slideshow and gallery of your images.

Travel and accommodation for England and Wales. For Scotland please add £250.

£1650

    Andrew is Amazing!

    We hired Andrew to photograph our wedding in September at Stanlake Park after using him for our Engagement shoot.
    From initial meetings to the actual day, Andrew was just so organised accommodating and knowledgeable.
    He gave us so much advice and reassurance that our day would be perfect, and it really was!

    It rained on our wedding day, and organising our families for photos was a bit hectic but Andrew took all the stress away and handled it like a absolute pro.

    We are absolutely besotted with our wedding photos, and all our guests have said what an amazing and talented photographer he is. We've given his website details to quite a few of our friends who ahave weddings next year.

    If you're looking to hire a photographer, Andrew is 100% your person!

    Thank you Andrew for capturing such a magical day with such stunning photographs.

    Fantastic Photographer

    When we asked Andy to be our photographer for our wedding, he was superb in regards to the months of organising and understanding what we were after, leading upto the big day.
    He took time to visit us, get to know us and we felt confident in what he does.
    On the day, he was extremely organised and especially accomodating in what we were after, there wasn't anything he wouldn't do to help us make our day so special. The extra time that he offered towards the end of the night, was extremely generous and very kind, it topped off an amazing day.
    When we received the edited pictures, we were so pleased with the quality and standard that was produced.
    Would highly recommend Andy, he was truly amazing!

    Andrew Dawson Photography's reply:

    Thanks Mr & Mrs G! I don't ever ask for reviews so this means a lot that you have gone out of your way to write this. We had a fab day at The Elvetham and I was chuffed to bits that you chose me as your photographer for the day. I can see that some of the images you have uploaded are iPhone shots that guests took so I am hoping that you haven't lost your gallery!? If you have I still believe I have it and would be only too happy to re-edit the RAW images and provide them to you again as part of the service. Andy

    August Wedding

    Hired Andy at very short notice after our photographer unfortunately had Covid 9 days before the wedding. Started off well with a positive first meeting & we where confident we could trust him but unfortunately it turned into a nightmare. Without all the detail key issues - missing photographs, poor quality control on shots, missing key photos. Lack of ownership & poor after service & sloppy editing. But by far the worst part is the editing of my body shape without discussion. I wouldn't normally leave negative reviews - but bridal pictures are so important. Attached* some examples of edits vs my actual shape - horrified this happened with our discussion - but also the end result is poor. Unfortunately we can not recommend & would like to ensure this doesn't happen to another couple.

    Our New Forest Wedding

    I would highly recommend using Andy for any and every occasion you wish to have photographed. He photographed our wedding and the photographs he provided were simply stunning and exactly what we wanted.
    Andy has such a relaxing and friendly presence he made us both feel so at ease when we were getting our photographs taken.
    We had him the whole day and he arrived promptly in the morning to capture both of us getting ready and my arrival at the church.
    Apart from our group photos he was the invisible man but managed to captured every moment of our wedding in such a natural way, nothing looked staged and nothing was missed.
    He has such a great eye for photography he captured some lovely quirky photos which we always have now to remember and cherish from our wedding. I will definitely be calling on Andy again in the future for family photographs.

    Andrew Dawson Photography's reply:

    Thank you very much Sarah. I hope you are both well and anytime you want some family photos you make sure to let me know 😊

    Rivervale Barn Wedding

    Hi Andy,
    Our sincere thanks for these beautiful photos, that absolutely captured the most heartfelt and happy day. We have no idea how we will pick our favourites for an album, though we definitely have one or two that we cannot wait to have framed and in our home.
    There is so much of the day that is a blur and it is lovely to relive the day through these images. You managed to get fantastic shots from everywhere and were so discreet – your attention to detail is outstanding (I love you got the Just Married flags in the sunlight!).
    All the best to you and your family Ben, have a wonderful weekend.

    Andrew Dawson Photography's reply:

    Ben, I thank you for a great review and hope that you and Nat are well? Have a great Xmas and I am pleased to hear your news re a new addition to the family coming soon.

    Andy went above and beyond and captured stunning images that we will forever treasure!

    Andy was recommended to us by a friend and did not disappoint. We knew as soon as we met him that he would be professional, as he was asking us for details we hadn’t even thought of. Andy arrived early in the day to ensure he had time to capture everything and discuss and tend to our last minute requests. He was also so accommodating, going along with all of our personal and logistical requests, which included a boat trip from the service to the reception. Andy even supplied an additional photographer to ensure all of the images we requested were captured. He left no stone unturned and we couldn’t have asked for more. The images he captured and edited were stunning and we can’t thank him enough. Book with confidence, you won’t be disappointed.

    Andrew Dawson Photography's reply:

    Thanks for the review Nick. What can I say, you guys had an amazing day and the secret surprise with the boat that even I didn't know about was brilliant! I had never photographed at that venue before and the amazing grounds and river made for some great photo opportunities. Loved every minute and thanks again. Andy

    Photographed our Wedding! 💒

    Andrew did exactly what he says on the tin! Timely, friendly, non intrusive, competitively priced but most importantly provided amazing pictures! (Loved the 20% “999” discount too - thanks!) Andrew made us, and guests feel at ease throughout 👍👍

    Ashley, I am humbled. I do lots for charity as well as supporting our 999 services. Likewise I know that you do your bit too. If I can ever be of service for any of your events, free of charge, please let me know and I will be only too glad to help out for a good cause. All the best mate, Andy

    Priceless..

    Andy is an excellent photographer, he listened to everything we requested in regards to our wedding photos. He all had lots of suggestions to enhance our vision. We felt totally comfortable and very secure, when Andy was dealing with our requests. His amazing attention to detail meant that we were ecstatic with the photography album choices that Andy presented us with, post wedding. I would recommend Andy to everyone who is getting in the World, if I could. Thanks Andy..

    Amazing Wedding Photography!!!!

    Andy and his son were awesome!!! They literally put everything they had into making sure we had all the photographs we could have hoped for from our special day. From dawn until the end of the night, they were up running around getting photos from all angles. We had such a fun time whenever we met Andy including our first meeting, our pre-wedding shoot and most importantly on the wedding day.

    Andy is such a lovely chap and really made our day special and has given us photos that will live with us forever. You will not be disappointed if you choose him for your wedding and he was a pleasure to work with throughout and very reliable.

    We can’t thank you guys (Andy and son) enough and hope to see you soon.
