Andrew shot our wedding photos this past March 2015 and he did a FANTASTIC job! Andrew captured the day beautifully, providing us with hundreds of gorgeous photos (a lot more than what my friends have gotten from their wedding photographers). He definitely goes the extra mile for his clients, and clearly cares about getting to know you so that he can give you the best possible product for your day. Andrew is also great with communication both before and after the wedding, and we loved that he met with us in person twice before the big day. And having gotten to know you, on your big day Andrew is right there to help keep you calm and laughing through any wedding day crisis. He also works well with the other vendors on your wedding day, which is more important that you'd think! Being an experience photographer, Andrew was able to give us advice on wedding timelines (when to take posed shots, how long to give for family shots, etc) which immensely helped us in coordinating our vendors day of. He was also able to share the photos and time-lapse with us both electronically and on drives mailed to us, which is a huge help. As for style, we loved that he takes a photojournalist approach, which takes the pressure off of trying to pose for every photo and allows the photos to look more alive and realistic when you're not focused on the camera. He is however, perfectly happy to get those needed posed shots and will faithfully do so provided you give him a list of the shots you want. Overall, we were extremely pleased with Andrew as our wedding photographer and we highly recommend him for yours.

We found Andrew through WeddingWire and ultimately met him and several other photographers. There's no dearth of very qualified photographers in the DC area, but Andrew stood out for several reasons - 1. We just liked him, he's a really cool guy to have hanging around! He can make you feel comfortable which makes for great (relaxed, natural looking) photos. 2. He described his editing process during our meeting and we knew exactly what we would get in terms of raw, edited and B&W images, etc. I also really liked his attention to detail in editing - he actually removed hoards of people from the National Mall in our photos! 3. Value - we met with photographers who charged less but Andrew delivers a superior product at what I consider a very reasonable rate for the quality. He also covers the entire event unlike other photographers who charge based on a certain # of hours. Seeing photos now, we would have missed a lot without having him there start to finish. 4. Flexibility - we did not want to miss a moment of our wedding being pulled away for endless portraits. Andrew said great and just rolled with the timeline we worked out. He captured great moments but still let us actually be in the moment and part of our day. He also didn't hesitate to photograph dogs, kids, firetrucks, or anything else that popped up on wedding day. Now, post-wedding, we consider ourselves tremendously lucky to have worked with Andrew. He was absolutely phenomenal, incredibly talented and I would, without reservation, recommend him. Our families and friends all commented how great he was to work with too. Our photos are just so great; the day flew by, so it has been wonderful to remember moments and see what he captured that we missed. The time lapse made our families and friends cry - having that on top of photos was like a gift. We are so thankful for having worked with him! He is really an unbelievable photographer and we can't speak highly enough of his work!

Andrew is an amazing photographer, and his gorgeous photos speak for themselves - they have such a unique and beautiful perspective, very different from most of the wedding photographer industry! Hiring him was absolutely one of our best decisions for our wedding - we are so happy with our photos! He's also incredibly professional and quick - he sent us a timelapse video of all our photos within one week of the wedding, and sent us all the final photos in less than a month. Andrew was wonderful to work with, and I couldn't recommend him more highly.

Andrew was excellent from our very first interaction months before the event, all the way through the wedding and beyond! He is so friendly and immediately makes you feel comfortable. My husband is not huge on getting his picture taken, and he felt very at ease, which (combined with Andrew's incredible talents), helped us get awesome memories captured. He really listens to the vision you have for your photos and offers great expertise. He's also fun to have around! We can't think of anyone we would rather have captured our big day! I would highly recommend Andrew for any event!!

On Sunday, my DH and I got married. Andrew had previously shot our engagement photos, which were gorgeous. We bonded with him right away after the first email exchange. I tested him by sending ridiculous examples of engagement sessions from Buzzfeed that "appealed to us." Andrew played along and replied with even funnier pictures. DH and I knew that we had found the perfect photographer for us. The engagement shoot was so much fun. Andrew cracked jokes the whole time to keep the shoot light and fun. He ended up using one of our favorite photos in his online portfolio (we are the couple holding hands with the shadow stretching before us, and I am in a blue and white dress with a red sweater). For this past Sunday, we couldn't wait to work with him again. The attention that he gave us as well as his natural ability to make us laugh really helped to make our wedding day special. We felt less like we were working with a vendor and more like we were working with a friend. Andrew instinctively knew which shots to take and took advantage of the beautiful surroundings. Any time I requested a picture that wasn't on my "list," Andrew just jumped in. It's pretty wonderful to be so in sync with someone the way DH and I were with him. In addition, several of our guests commented on his skill and professionalism. In fact, one guest, who is a photographer herself, thought that we had paid double what we really paid because Andrew was so impressive. Any time that we, or a friend, needs a photographer, Andrew's name will be in the front of my mind. I'm definitely sad that our wedding is over because I would work with Andrew again in a heart beat.

Andrew is an amazing photographer and definitely my favorite wedding vendor that I had the pleasure to work with. Being in the graphic design industry, I had a very specific artistic style that I was looking for when searching for a photographer. Andrew definitely delivered! His photographs were beautiful and he was always thinking outside the box to give his compositions an interesting perspective. For instance, for our engagement photos, he was willing to climb on rocks (we went to a national park) to get the best shots. For my bridal prep photos, to get the right shot of my wedding dress he created a contraption out of a lamp stand at the hotel room just to get the perfect photo. He will do whatever it takes. In addition to his awesome photography skills, Andrew is a very personable guy. He is hilarious and always made my husband and I laugh. Before we had our engagement shots, we have never had any professional photographs taken of the two of us, and Andrew made the whole experience very comfortable and fun. At our wedding, he made all our guests have a great time. Thank you Andrew! I hope to be able to use your photo services in the future for other events!

Andrew was voted our best vendor at our wedding! By us and by friends that got to know him. From our first phone call I was like, man this guy is cool and relaxed. I'm also pretty relaxed but obviously this can change on your wedding day, so having a laid back photographer was perfect for me. Not to say he wasn't running around taking awesome and creative shots all night! He arrived a bit early to set up and we chatted a bit and he went straight to work and my bridal party loved him right away. He's funny and easy to work with and we definitely loved having him around. AND he's a dog lover and got some awesome shots of my doggie which I loved! At the wedding, he was right there on the dance floor but never in the way and got some really fun shots that are the ones I want to remember. I already have my photos and my wedding was a week ago. Doesn't get much better than that. I HIGHLY recommend Andrew if you want a bad-ass photographer who is fun and awesome. Simple as that.

Andrew was fantastic - we actually had the luck of getting him through George Street Photography (a larger service that hooks up brides and grooms with a photographer via a "matching" survey service) - and he was just incredible. Andrew reached out a couple days before the wedding to spend some time on the phone and go over our photography requests and to just create a situation where we could get to know one another - he didn't rush our conversation at all and was genuinely interested in making our day the best day for us. He's obviously had a lot of experience in his roll as wedding photographer - of course on the big day, as a member of the wedding party you feel like you are always behind and have lots to do, but he just came and went about setting up his own shots, capturing a lot of the most basic photos that any bride and groom would want - he went without hesitation or frustration between a handful of hotel rooms, moved around as we requested last minute, followed us to our venue, got shots of us walking/talking/laughing - as we fell behind, he assured us everything we wanted could be captured and was quick-witted enough to set up our first look and family shots in varying locations. Our actual family and wedding party portraits took no time at all - he was so great, so aware of the surroundings despite never being at our hotel or venue locations before, and really got the best possible shots with the sunset and the nature around us. by the time cocktail hour came, it didn't even feel like he was there. Andrew was totally cool with guests pulling him in to take a group picture - he was so casual and cool about everything. The day after our wedding, Andrew sent us some photos to get excited about - he just is so great. Definitely recommend!!!!!!!!

Andrew not only did our wedding but he did our engagement photos as well. From day 1 I knew that we were going to get along...and then I got the photos back from our engagement session and I knew that there wasn't anyone else that could capture the emotion and moments between Eric and I like he could. A year later Andrew comes into our wedding and immediately made EVERYONE feel completely comfortable. He knew everyone's names and connected with every person in our wedding party. He knew exactly where to get the best shots in DC and how to achieve them in the moment. When some of the bridesmaids had suggestions he took them and ran with it. We were lucky enough to have Andrew's 2nd photographer, Sarah, during the day as well and could not ask to meet a nicer girl. Andrew made sure he knew every vendor and worked with them to create the best shots during the reception. He left such an amazing impression on many of our guests and I have had many of them tell me how great, friendly, and professional he was. He was able to keep a smile on everyone's face throughout the entire event. One of my favorite things about him was how well he took care of Eric and I. He made a point to remind me to take a step back and enjoy the moment I was in and not to let the stress of a wedding day consume me. I've only seen 2 photos thus far and I can't even believe how amazing they look and how they genuinely take me back to the very moment they were taken. I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking someone to perfectly capture their day or even just capture the moment. You will not find a nicer, more professional, or fun person to help you to remember the most important day of your life.

The level of commitment to excellence the Andrew exudes is unmatched. I am a deejay in the DC area and have the opportunity to see hundreds of photographers. Andrew was the most personable, least selfish, and easiest going out of them all. That's not to say that most photographers don't exude the same tendencies, but rather that Andrew was the best of the group. His photograph's quality speaks for itself and his personality only adds to the experience. My wife, Jeannie, and I loved Andrew so much that we asked him to come to our destination wedding in Hawaii. There were recommendations flying from our venue begging us to take one of their guys and it just wasn't a good match. At all. In fact, Andrew blew them out of the water. Our families loved him tremendously and the results speak for themselves. He is constantly garnishing award after award and we definitely know why. You owe it to yourself to at least speak to Andrew to see if he's the perfect match. You won't be disappointed.

Andrew was INCREDIBLE!!! My fiancé and I were so nervous about having our pictures taken. He was SO relaxed and fun. He made us feel totally comfortable and took amazing pictures. He listened to what we wanted and made the whole experience fun. He took the time to show us great pictures throughout the night. He was able to make himself seem invisible, while still capturing the emotions of every moment of the wedding with his photographs. Many guests commented on what a great job he was doing. We could not have picked a more professional (yet relaxed) photographer.

OMG! Where do I start. I found Andrew through a mutual friend of his that was getting her nails done at the same salon as me and over heard my convo on the phone about photographers. He was recommended as number one so I called him and his personality just jumped out at the first hello. He put all my worries at ease when it came to fears of dark pictures due to a wedding at night in december. We later met up and his vibrant personality and questions that I felt made you feel like he really wanted to make this about you and that was all I needed to assert that he would be the one. At the wedding he showed up on time and immediately learned everyones name which in turn made everyone feel like he was someone that you could trust. My grandmother stated that he made her feel like he really knew what this day meant for me and our family and that he was determined to show it. I have a husband that is not the picture person, but even after his groomsmen shots he came to me and said that Andrew made him feel comfortable and his friends really came out of their shells for some great pictures. I have seen 3-4 of the photos from the wedding and they are stunning and I can't wait for more. If you are looking for a vibrant lively individual who is there to make this day about you and really capture you on your day Andrew is the one. He never forced us in to positions and just captured candid shots that to me mean the most. He seems to find you under all that make up, dress, and jewerly and shows who you are and what your husband/wife means to you on that day. More than impressed and honored to have had him as a photographer, happy bride. Shelly
