Real feedback from real couples

Real feedback from real couples.

I was incredibly excited about being selected for the regional finals of The Wedding Industry Awards in the ‘Best Wedding Photographer – North East and Yorkshire’ category.  It’s judged on real feedback from your couples over a 12 month period, and only those with the highest scores make it to the regional finals.

Once the regional and national finals are over you’re given the overall scores your couples gave you, and their feedback, which I read for the first time last night, having to stop a couple of times to just gather myself and wipe a little tear of happiness away as I read the amazing things my couples said about their experience of using me for their wedding.  Anyone who knows me will testify that I work ridiculously hard to create the best possible experience and art for those who put their trust in me to photograph their wedding, it’s not a job to me, it’s a passion, and to receive scores and comments like those below brought me joy that I can’t even begin to describe.

I could spend all day trying to explain my work and customer service to couples looking for a wedding photographer, but this blog post will describe things better than I ever could hope to.  Real comments and scores by real couples I’ve worked with… if you’re looking for a wedding photographer then you can feel confident I’ll do nothing short of a fantastic job, after all here’s the proof! 🙂

“Andy was AMAZING, he is such a talented guy and rocks at his job!! And even better that he is so down to earth and made us feel at ease! He captured all the magical moments that we missed and we can relive our day perfectly through his work! His work is so unique and able to create true art, but now we have the task to try to pick photos for our album… how do we do that when we love them all?! I would recommend Andy to every couple looking for a photographer, he is truly is a fantastic!!!!!!!!”

 

Kristen & Nathan

“We are typically budget spenders, but we didn’t want to cut corners on the photography – and we’re so glad we asked Andy! We loved what we saw in Andy’s work how he captured “moments” and how he captured nature. And the way he used light gave the pictures such a happy feel (pls excuse my non-industry terminology!)!! Then, to make his work even better, Andy makes people feel really relaxed and natural. A lot of our guests commented on Andy to us – “your photographer was so good/funny/nice!”

 

Sarah & Paul

“Andy is a fabulous wedding photographer. His calm and personable approach really made our day. He was very cheery and friendly with guests and many of them commented on his fabulous presence. The photos are simply stunning, he captured exactly how we feel about one another and made us both look amazing (thanks Andy!). He was also super efficient in the lead up to the day-all the nitty gritty like contracts and arrangements were very clear and he was so proactive in every way.”

 

Charlotte & Alex

“Andy was excellent from start to finish. He integrated well with our family and friends, professional at all times and never intrusive. We loved his style and ability to capture people and not places/venues. He was more than happy to accommodate our wishes on the day including paddling in the sea, a secret dance and everyone we love. All our guests commented on how fab he was and I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to others. A massive thank you to Andy from us!”

 

Fiona & Phil

“Andy captured our special day exquisitely. His individual style, flair and attention to detail means we have an album of unique memories that encapsulates our individual style.”

 

Chloe & Josh

“We received a lot of compliments about our wedding photographs, as well as about our photographer, who fit into the role on the day like a dream! Andy did his research and captured the 1930s Hollywood vibe of our wedding perfectly, drawing on inspiration from some our favourite fine art photographers (Gregory Crewdson, Tim Walker) and interpreting key features of their work into what wedding photography should encompass. Our wedding album made us both extremely emotional.”

 

Ami & Danny

“Andy was absolutely amazing! We met properly for the first time on the wedding day (first meeting via skype) and it was like we knew him already. He was very professional and a played a massive part in the day. He has such a passion for photography and his enthusiasm really rubs off on you and results in great photos! We trusted him completely and he was so easy to work with. The snippets he put on facebook and the slideshow he produced were incredible and added a special touch to the day.”

 

Ashleigh & Michael

“Words cannot explain how overjoyed we were with Andy, his presence on the day and the work he did for us. it felt like having someone we’ve known for years photograph us, we felt totally at ease and chatted to him on a level I would with family.”

 

Kate & Sean

“We can’t recommend Andy enough! Before our wedding he was really easy to contact and didn’t mind answering our many questions. He was a pleasure to have around on the day and blended in seamlessly with our guests- everyone commented how nice he was. He made us feel totally at ease when we had our couples photos done (& we are not normally photo people!). We were so so happy with our wedding photos and wouldn’t change them for anything!”

 

Ashleigh & Darryl

“Exceptional person and photographer. Made our day even more special with his personality and ability to produce such amazing photographs. He was so helpful and saw when I was struggling to relax and always stepped in to offer advice or calm me down. My husband has said our day has been captured better than we could have ever expected.”

 

Louise & David

“Andy felt more of a friend and guest on our wedding day rather than anything else. I had a tragic loss of my Mum just four days before my wedding but this was handled with compassion and sensitivity by Andy. He made me feel supported and comfortable in his presence. He is an exceptional photographer.

 

Amanda & Gary

“Andy was a great photographer and captured some amazing shots for us. He was very professional and great communication with us at all times. Would highly recommend.”

 

Elaine & Mark

“Our wedding photos contain stunningly natural images capturing the essence of the best day of our lives – and Andy made that happen. The care and thought Andy puts into his work is evident in the beautiful touches: the slideshow set to music, the gorgeous lavender-filled handcrafted box for our USB, keeping us updated on social media so we could get excited with family/friends. On top of that, Andy is simply a lovely bloke (we think of him as our mate!) who continues to be loved by our guests!”

 

Sherelle & Matt

“My husband and I continue to admire Andy’s work in capturing all the special moments of our big day. We will always appreciate his efforts on and around our day. I would highly recommend him as a photographer, he is truly talented. My husband and I felt like he was one of our guests at our wedding as he blended in so comfortably. As a result we have a wonderful amount of natural shots. As for our posed shots, we had so fun throughout these- and we’re so delighted by the finished results.”

 

Zoe & Craig

“Andy is very personable, and we knew from the first time we met him that he was the perfect photographer for us. Neither of us are naturals in front of the camera, but Andy kept us both very relaxed and comfortable throughout. His photographic style is very modern and some of the candid moments he captured were fantastic (moments that we would never have got to see otherwise)!”

 

Dawn & Shaun

“Andy is one of the most talented photographers I have seen. His photographs are not only well executed but artistic, unique and contemporary. He has a fantastic manner with his clients and put my husband and I at ease immediately. He was not just our talented wedding photographer, he was very much part of our big day. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. The quality of his photographs speak for the themselves!”

 

Kara & Rob

“Andy is a lovely lovely chap to work with. His photography style means we have captured some lovely unposed moments from our wedding – gorgeous images of people who don’t know they are being photographed showing genuine happiness/emotion. We particularly liked the show reel he put together for us too, this has made it really easy for us to show a snap shot of the day to friends and family in a lovely way. Andy managed all of the posed family shots with ease and was easy going and chatty.”

 

Laura & James

“Andy’s warm personality and enthusiasm immediately puts you at ease, perfect for a couple who aren’t the most comfortable in front of a camera like us. He captured the most incredible shots of our wedding, from intimate moments between guests to portraits with show stopping backdrops. Andy’s photography is instinctive and his high quality photos are a result of his creativity and vision. We feel very lucky to have had Andy as our photographer.”

 

Beth & Sarah

“Andy was incredibly friendly and approachable when we contacted him about our wedding. He incorporated our ideas and made the most of the venue despite it raining all day. I was nervous about being photographed but Andy has a natural and laid back style and worked with our videographer to make me comfortable – they worked like clockwork together! WOW the photos are unbelievable. I’m just so so glad that we chose him, he helped to make our day special. A very genuinely lovely and talented person.”

 

Emma & Rob

“Andy was nothing but perfection before, during, and after our wedding day.  His photos are beautiful, he worked relentlessly hard and yet still blended in as a guest at our wedding. The general service was nothing short of exemplary. From the moment we first met Andy we knew his style, personality and insane talent was exactly what we wanted for our wedding and could not be more grateful. Our wedding photos are breath taking and will be cherished forever.”
