An absolute gem of a photographer, and a fantastic guy!

Where to even begin? Andy was everything we could've possibly asked for in a photographer. Funny, personable, authentic and no none sense (in the best way).

We wanted to feel relaxed and have minimal disruption for us and our guests on our wedding day, and Andy's documentary style delivers just that. He captured our day perfectly from start to finish as it happened. He got the tears, the laughs, the sweet moments and the liveliness of our evening do.

The quality of his work is fantastic and everything from the initial meeting, to getting our own digital gallery was just seamless. We have received so many compliments on how our photos turned out (including from guests who are photographers themselves!). He is also brilliant value for money considering the service he provides.

Above anything else, Andy is just a lovely guy. He doesn't expect anything from you and goes out of his way to make your wedding day as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. He was a huge hit with our guests!

Thank you Andy for being a superstar, we'll treasure the incredible photos of our day forever.

Perfect Relaxed and professional

Andy was brilliant, relaxed helpful and well equipped with his bum bag full of emergency equipment ie tissues when the bride started crying. Thanks x You don’t notice him there and shoot’s really fabulous shots , that are relaxed and natural. We are overwhelmed with the photos as both myself and my husband do not like being centre of attention.
We would definitely recommend his services you will not be disappointed.

Fabulous and professional guy

From the minute I met Andy, I knew he was the right photographer for us. I didn’t want the entire formal photos to be ‘Stand here, smile’ and get face ache. I did have some formals but most were natural, capture the moment photos. I’m waiting for the album, but I’ve no doubt it will be fantastic.

Best wedding photographer we could ask for!

Andy was the best wedding photographer we could have asked for. In the lead up he made sure to understand what we wanted from our wedding day and made sure to be on the same page as us about how the day would look and was quick to reply to emails. Then on our wedding day he was SUPER! He helped us to keep the day on schedule, was so helpful if we needed to ask him any questions, and made sure that all of our formal shots were done quickly but to a high standard. He was a big part of making us feel at ease on our wedding day while also getting some amazing shots. After, we didn't have to wait long either to receive our wedding pictures which we really appreciated. Genuinely, couldn't recommend enough!

Simply the best !

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish, highly recommend Andy.

I am so pleased we used him to capture our special day. His attention to detail and ability to capture emotions in each shot is amazing.

We last minute decided to go with the photo film and he didn’t disappoint! Edited perfectly capturing the whole day!

Cannot fault Andy in anyway. You only get one chance to capture the day and he couldn’t have done it any better.

He’s definitely found his vocation.

Thank you Andy

Andy is just the best!

I would absolutely recommend having Andy as your photographer. The whole booking process was super straight forward, Andy wasn’t pushy or a ‘salesman’ but instead he really cares about knowing as much as possible about you as a couple and figuring out if he is the right fit for the wedding. He kept in touch throughout the wedding planning process and made us feel super calm about the day.

On the day Andy was so friendly and made us feel completely at ease. Our guests loved him also! He was there to capture so many amazing moments but he also never imposed himself. We are so in love with our wedding photos! They are natural, relaxed and fun; just everything we wanted. I’ve had so many family and friends reach out to tell me how great the photos are and what an amazing job Andy did.
Photos were delivered super quickly and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you Andy!

Amazing photos!

Getting back from our honeymoon to those photos was like reliving the day again! Andy really captured the energy of the day, they're honestly so beautiful and we couldn't be happier with them! The documentary style that Andy goes for is really different but it captures the emotions from everyone. Andy was great from start to finish, speaking to us before the wedding via zoom about the day and what we wanted. Even the formal shots are beautiful. Thank you so much!

Fantastic communicator, great value for money, puts you at ease :)

When we first started looking for a wedding photographer we were drawn to how detailed and helpful Andy's website is - such as his availability calendar, transparency of pricing and packages on offer, plus his excellent video guides. Before we had even met Andy over Zoom we felt confident that he would capture the day in a natural and candid way whilst making us feel totally at ease. We opted for the top package that included full videos of our ceremony and speeches and were very impressed with the outcome of these which were also captured by Andy's assistant, Isabelle. This is likely to be the only time that so many of our family and friends are together in one place, so it was important that the biggest day of our lives was captured professionally and it's clear that Andy takes great pride in his work. Thank you Andy!

A wonderful photographer; we couldn't be happier!

Our experience with Andy was everything we could have hoped for from a wedding photographer.

From start to finish he was friendly, professional and quick to respond whenever we needed to ask him something.

Andy was brilliant on the day; he helped everyone relax and his candid style of photography worked really well, even though we had an intimate wedding with a small number of guests.
Due to personal circumstances, flexibility with some of the evening timings was required and Andy was happy to accommodate, which we really appreciated.

We're over the moon with how the photos turned out and everyone has commented on how he really managed to capture the emotion/happiness of the day!
The photofilm was also really well put together and, along with the photos, is a wonderful memento of the wedding.

We're hoping to hold a bigger wedding reception for extended family in a few years' time and we'll definitely be reaching out to him again for that!

Absolutely excellent, couldn’t recommend highly enough

Throughout the whole process Andy was so helpful and professional and the photos are exceptional. On the day you wouldn’t even know he was there but somehow he managed to capture absolutely everything. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else

Credit to his art

As a photographer in my previous career getting the correct photographer for our wedding day was one my top priorities.

We had a small intimate wedding of only 12 in total and we were looking for someone who would be able to capture the closeness and family bond within our little unit. Andy's documentary style fit this bill perfectly.

Throughout the build up to the day Andy kept in constant contact. Even when an unplanned pregnancy was thrown into the mix. Andy was there to help when my pregnancy brain failed me and I was forgetting small details.

On the day itself Andy was amazing. He was brilliant with our small children and everyone felt totally at ease. The only way I can think to describe him is as a fly on the wall. Observering everything and capturing even the tiniest details of the day. Never missing an opportunity for the perfect, meaningful and emotive shot.
Even in the rain and blustery cold winds Andy went out of his way to capture our outdoor shots.
Andy also kept both myself (bride) and groom up to date on anything that was happening that might of been slightly out of plan. He made sure there was no stress on either of us and had eyes and ears on everything. Even when I was worried about my children, he knew exactly who's arms they were safely in to reassure me.

The gallery itself is beautiful and a credit to Andy and his artform. With every photograph you can see the thought that has gone into the shot and how much he does truly love what he does.

I cannot fault a single thing.

So happy with our photos!

Booking Andy as our photographer was one of the BEST choices we made when planning our wedding. Not only is Andy professional and so friendly, he is also so helpful with everything, nothing was to much.
We only had such a small wedding but Andy still made just as much effort as if it was a big wedding, everyone kept commenting on how helpful and friendly Andy was.
The photos he captured are beautiful and we will cherish them for a life time!
Thank you so much Andy!!
