I hired Andy Photo to create one of the most important things I will ever create in my life - a surprise music video I played for my wife at our wedding. I was beyond impressed from start to finish! I came to Andy with a tight timeline, vague details and high expectations and he delivered ten fold. The shooting process was efficient and he gave me the direction I needed to be comfortable in front of the camera, doing something I've never done. After we spent a few days and different locations shooting, he sent me the rough draft much quicker than expected - and it BLEW ME AWAY! I was literally in tears watching this video that was so professionally done and it exceeded my already high expectations. I suggested some minor edits which he took care of quickly and with enthusiasm, actually enjoying the collaborative nature of our discussions, not making me feel like I was insulting or being too demanding. His energy and passion was infectious, you can tell that he is IN LOVE with what he does on an artistic as well as business level. The finished product was AMAZING!!! I played it at my wedding and it was the biggest hit. I got endless compliments on it and my new wife was moved to tears. It looks like a legitimate music video! I cannot thank Andy enough for his professionalism, creativeness and efficient work in helping me make the best day of my life that much more special and unique. I highly recommend him! More...

Was just casually lounging at the club where Andrew hosts a wonderful karaoke night and came up to me to show a photo that he took of me. I absolutely feel flabbergasted and love the photo so much I have personally made it my profile photo on social media. Andrew is extremely skilled at everything he does and this ends up being another skill that I am excited I have witness. More...
Andy has an amazing eye for photography. The way he frames his subject and adjusts the exposure makes his pictures truly breath taking. Plus, he is great at photoshop. I saw this one picture where he took a person out from the background and the final picture looked flawless! I will definitely book him the next time I need a photographer. More...
Absolutely adored the shots taken and picture quality!
You can always tell when a person puts a little bit of themselves in their work, and it definitely shows in each and every one of his photos.
Keep up the good work!
