Andy was absolutely fantastic!
Andy was absolutely fantastic and we would without a doubt recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. He was so friendly and made us and all of our wedding party feel comfortable, which allowed him to capture some amazing candid photos that caught the essence of the day perfectly. He knew our wedding venue - Shendish Manor - really well so was able to recommend the best locations around the grounds that we wouldn’t have thought of without him. One of the things we are most grateful for is that Andy went above and beyond to create unique pictures for us that we will cherish forever. We can’t thank Andy enough for making the most special day of our lives complete.

Perfect person to have near you on your big day
Andy is the best photographer we could have asked for! He has a very cool and chilled personality, and that definitely makes him the perfect person to have near you on your big day. He uses natural light so is very unobtrusive, managing to capture lovely looks between people and details we would otherwise have missed. From the beginning, right through the very end, Andy was super professional and accommodating to our requests. He had the perfect balance of managing us and our guests to get some staged photographs as well as completely blending into the background to get natural shots. It's so special to be able to look at some of the candid photographs and remember the moment, not even realising at the time that you were being photographed. The photos are of high quality and captured the ambience and atmosphere of the day perfectly. Many of our guests were also complimenting Andy's approach. We would definitely recommend him!! Thank you, Andy.

Andy is a fabulous and professional photographer!
Andy is a fabulous and professional photographer. When we were looking for photographers, it was important to find someone who captured candid moments; we couldn't care less about the stills of our shoes (although he did capture these quickly and beautifully); we desired a discreet photographer who knew how to take movement shots as my family loves to dance. His attention to detail is second to none. He is the perfect balance of artistry and results. He is direct in his communication and guidance, and we avoided a lot of "awkward couple shots" as a result. We felt comfortable with him, both in our complimentary engagement session (which only happened four days before the wedding, AND he provided us digital prints two days later so we could display them at the wedding), and for the day itself. We can't commend him more. After the wedding, he took some time to adjust and perfect the 1000+ shots. I believe he sent the link 1.5 months after the wedding. They're perfect. We're glad he's so detail-oriented and spent the time to curate the bunches of photos, which he provided in colour and b&w. He truly captured our special day. There is literally nothing else we could've wanted. He's superb. Also... he loves a good puddle shot! He is willing to "suffer" for his art for sure. Thank you, Andy!

Andy shoots in a natural and candid style
Andy was the photographer for our wedding in June last year. We couldn't be happier with our choice! He worked so hard on the day, running around to capture absolutely everything despite it being the hottest day of the year. He shoots in a natural and candid style which meant the album we ended up with was a true reflection of the day. And his photos were crisp, clear and beautiful. Highly recommended.

Andy is a star & brilliant at his job
Andy is a star & brilliant at his job. He took the time to meet us at our venue beforehand, find out what we were like and needed even when we didn't have much of a clue. He was there early on the day and casually recorded our big day with warm photos for the small family wedding and then casual, non-staged photos of the garden party with our friends and family. The results were stunning and service after the day excellent. I guess you would say that we were happy!! ..oh & he offered real value for money. Thanks Andy

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding was Cat & Ed's wedding at Broadhaven Bay in Belmullet County Mayo. It was my first destination wedding and first opportunity to use a beach for wedding photos!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, Natural, Documentary, Photojournalistic, Unobtrusive

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of the lovely testimonials and reviews that I have received from lots of happy couples.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I advise my couples not to plan too many formal group shots. Formal group shots can take up to 5 mins per group as it always takes time to gather wedding guests for the photos. I recommend limiting the group shot list to around 10 groups max.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My favourite personal touch at a wedding was a wedding cake which truly represented the couple - it was a stunning cake featuring elements of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones in the design.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I normally arrange a meeting or Skype consultation to discuss you wedding plans and talk you through my wedding packages and range of wedding albums. Following this if the couple would like to make a booking I require a £300 deposit and a contract to be signed and returned. Some of my wedding packages come with a pre-wedding shoot. This is organised midweek Mon-Thurs closer to the time of the wedding and allows me to get to know the couple so that they can be as relaxed as possible on the wedding day itself - resulting in beautiful, natural wedding photos. After the wedding you will receive your photos in an online gallery typically 4-6 weeks after the wedding day.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The majority of my work is documentary style photography however I would still recommend time is taken on a few portraits with the couple. I aim to keep these as fun and natural as possible.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

You can still get stunning wedding photos on a wet day. A white umbrella for the bride and rainbow coloured umbrellas for bridesmaids can look fab!

Describe how you got into photography.

I was a self-employed web designer and wanted to offer an extra service, so I learned photography. I soon started photographing weddings, sporting events, and gigs and haven't looked back!
