I'm not into posing. I'm into genuine human interaction. I'm into capturing the chemistry and energy between you and those you love. Most of all, I'm into the real, raw, beautiful human emotion that shines through on a wedding day and it is my goal to capture those moments in the most genuine way possible.
But! I’m not just here to take photos you can look back on in 50 years. I’m here to provide an experience for the belly-laughing, fun-loving, crazy-about-eachother couples that they’ll never forget. My philosophy as a wedding photographer is to see the beauty in real life exactly the way it is; to capture the way your dad wipes a tear from his face as he walks you down the aisle, how hard you laugh when the love of your life whispers a dumb joke in your ear, the way you hold eachother when you're cold.
“From our very first communication it was clear that Andrea has the enthusiasm, passion, attention to detail and flexibility that we were looking for. We had a wedding in Lake Placid, New York and Andrea was excited about the opportunity to come to the mountains for our big day even though she had to find accommodations during the busy season in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. She worked the hardest to earn our business (among some very strong competition) and once we settled on her, everything was done professionally, promptly and with a smile. We exchanged a number of emails with ideas of what we were looking for and Andrea exceeded our expectations. On the day of our wedding Andrea was so positive and fun and fit right in to our small wedding group, which consisted of nine people, and she let things unfold naturally but also offered good suggestions . We are thrilled with the photos and we would recommend Andrea for your wedding without hesitation.”
“Andrea was amazing to work with! Great communication, very personable and easy to talk to. Every phone call and email was like talking to a friend you've known for years. She was very relaxing for us as a couple who had never attended a wedding prior to planning our own! Her framework for taking family pictures and extensive knowledge of perfect shots and poses makes it easy to stick to your allotted time in cocktail hour for photography, and makes it feel very natural and fun! She stuck out the bitter cold autumn wind with us and we still had a wonderful time taking photos after the ceremony. We highly recommend Andrea for anyone who wants the peace of mind from a professional, flexible and reliable photographer and all around great person. Perhaps our favorite touch was waking up the morning after the wedding to half a dozen teaser photos already released, seeing our own wedding in her breathtaking photography style that we first fell in love with.”
“I was referred to work with Andrea for our wedding by a friend and I am so very thankful to have hired her. She made us feel so comfortable and confident while she was taking our photos and was so easy to work with. Andrea was always professional and prompt with answering my many questions prior to the day of. Also, the photos we have received from Andrea are just stunning. I can’t get over how perfect they are. If anyone is out there reading this wondering if you should hire her for a wedding, engagement photos, etc. The answer is YES! She is a dream to work with and her work is absolutely gorgeous.”
“Andrea was such a wonderful photographer for our September wedding!! From our windy and rainy engagement photo session to the day of the ceremony, she was nothing less than professional at every stage of our journey, eager to provide us with guidance and advice to ensure we had the best possible experience! Our photos were spectacular, and Andrea managed to deliver them to us quicker than expected and at greater quality than we could have ever hoped. The candids alone from the wedding were beyond amazing; it felt like she was everywhere! We still have friends and family talking about how beautiful our wedding photos came out and it’s nearly impossible to choose which ones to hang in our home because they are all so lovely! The customized photo drive that she mailed to us were just the icing on the (wedding) cake, and made us feel like much more than “just another wedding.”
Honestly, you can’t put a price on her talent; she blew us away with our engagement session. She even got in freezing mountain water with us to take the most romantic waterfall pictures you’ve ever seen; whatever you imagine in your head, she makes it happen. Our wedding happened during the Corona reign of terror, and during every single backup plan Andrea had our back 100%. Whatever we needed and whatever plans we changed she was there for us. We ended up having a small church/backyard wedding and she captured the whole thing like a fairytale romance movie. We got SO many compliments from guests saying how comfortable she made them and how she felt like she was one of the guests she blended in so well. She is incredibly professional while also being a load of fun. She is worth every dang dollar and honestly I would have paid double for her amazing services.
“My fiancé and I couldn’t be happier that we found Andrea to do our photography. She has been without a doubt the best vendor we’ve worked with in planning our wedding! From our correspondence via email to officially meeting in person, Andrea has been warm, welcoming, informative, and professional. She was able work with our schedules and fit us in last minute for an engagement shoot (which we greatly appreciated). When we met up she took the time to sit down with us before our engagement shoot to find out more about what we were looking for and get to know us as a couple. Of course the day we chose to have our engagement shoot it was a bit rainy and overcast - we were initially concerned about having issues because of the weather but she was totally prepared and reassured us that the lighting was perfect. Andrea was happy to accommodate us bringing our dog and getting some pictures with him too.
“Where do I begin?? Andrea is simply amazing. From first meet till the wedding day and beyond Andrea was there every step of the way. Helping me not only in the planning process but the wedding day as well. Andrea is truly an artist. Her work is just like a movie. I had so many people who were not at the wedding who said that the emotions she captured were so raw that it was like they were there. I HIGHLY recommend Andrea for any of your photography needs”
“Andrea did my wedding and I am so beyond in love with her work! From the first email inquiry to the big day, I felt so comfortable with her. She was extremely patient with me as well. Throughout my wedding planning, I was EXTREMELY thorough in my research for vendors. I had lists on lists of info accompanied with pros n cons for each. Andrea came out on top of dozens n dozens of other photographers! I scrolled through her photos for weeeeeks and I just knew, I wanted her to document my wedding day. She catches all the best moments and angles all while making people comfortable being photographed. She made us laugh naturally, let us flow how we flow and followed me at the best times. I'll never forget my wedding night being outside during the reception with friends. Then a friend of mine mentions "your photographer should be out here" but before she even finished the sentence, there Andrea was. Catching the exact moment we were discussing, she was always 2 or more steps ahead. Even when I received my album, I was in shock at how many other moments she caught that I didn't even remember seeing her. When I met her, I told her I wanted her because I wanted memorable photos that didnt shout "posed wedding pic," I wanted photos to shout "love, family, and happiness" Believe me, she gave me that and more. Thank Andrea for your amazing work!”
you’d love an album but don’t want to design it yourself
you want the photography part of your wedding day to be a fun experience rather than a boring interruption
you have a ton of weird ideas that emphasize your personalities and you’d love a photographer that is down for anything!
the idea of making a wedding photography timeline stresses you out and you need some help
you and your partner are absolute goofballs and want that side of you to come out in photos!
you’re a bit nervous in front of the camera and you want your photographer to make you feel like the camera isn’t even there
you could use a hype girl: someone you can ask for any opinion, who will help with what to wear for an engagement session, who will help ease your stress, supply an Advil, make you feel beautiful, give you permission to make your wedding day exactly what you want and most importantly, to have a BLAST!
you’re drawn to the natural, real life photos rather than the posed Vogue look
It totally depends on the day! On average, you can expect around 100 photos per hour. For a standard eight hour wedding day, you will most likely see around 800 images
Nope! Trust me, I know everything there is to know about weddings and exactly what they entail. From the little details during the getting ready process to where to be during the ceremony, to capturing grandma’s insane dance moves, I know exactly what moments are crucial.
Let’s do it! I love meeting over a cup of coffee and talking about your vision for your wedding day. It’s a great way to get to know each other. If a bit of distance separates us, we can always video chat and talk in our pajama pants.
Editing can take a bit of time. I tell my clients 8-12 weeks for the delivery of the full gallery. However, I know how excited you’ll be to see them so I always try to get them back ASAP, and of course I’ll be posting sneak peaks as I go along!
I do not. I select only the absolute best for you. Anything you don’t see is a duplicate, an unflattering shot, or missed focus. Don’t worry - I will absolutely not withhold anything important!
Neutral colors are always best! Avoid mixing any patterns and make sure to wear something you feel comfortable in and can move around in. A lot of action goes down in my engagement sessions.
Paypal, cash, or check. Details will be outlined in the contract.
Traveling is my favorite thing in the world! I offer my wedding services throughout the entire United States.
For sure! I will work with you to make sure there is enough time to capture everything that is important to you and formulate a cohesive and easy schedule
Fun fact, about 80% of my couples say this, and without fail, they always wind up killing it! Believe me, I am way more awkward than you are and I also provide fun directions to start the session so you’re more focused on each other rather than the camera. I promise you will look great!
