During wedding planning, I asked for advice from former brides, and there was one piece of advice I took to heart: pick the best photographer, because the photos are the one thing that lasts forever for the special day that goes by so fast.
I am incredibly glad and lucky to have Andri as our prewedding and AD photographer. To be very honest, he wasn’t just a photographer. He helped us think through how we wanted our special day to look like. He was present but he was invisible.
If you’re looking for a photographer who captures actual emotions and heartfelt moments, Andri has the ability to capture that; it’s magical when you see the shots he produces from totally unprompted scenes. It’s his ability to capture art in an image and to make you feel comfortable in your skin and around him that makes the biggest difference. Forget Benjamin Wheeler, sign Andri!

We spoke to Andri at really short notice after our original photographer unfortunately had to pull out. We liked Andri as soon as we met him, he’s really relaxed and easy-going, which made us know he was the right guy for us. Contact was always easy with him and he met us at the venue to get an idea of what we wanted from the photos.
On the day, he arrived early, ready to get going. During the couple shoot he made us feel really comfortable and always had us laughing naturally. During the ceremony we didn’t even realise he was there, like a ninja! We couldn’t be happier with what we got – great natural shots delivered in a great package.

We engaged Andri based on our wedding planner’s recommendations. We had no email exchanges with Andri but we did visit his website to get a feel of his style.
I adopted a rather hands-off approach. Told Andri – ‘surprise me’. He did an outstanding job, period. I feel artists need free reign to do as they please, that’s when their best creative work shows up. I’ve had so many compliments from the photoshoot that blew our minds away. He has a distinctive style. Honest and humorous. He simply captured the essence of the moment and our guests. We are so happy we made the right choice.

From the first moment I met Andri, I knew I wanted him to be the one covering the day. He was down to earth, relaxed, and made me feel completely at ease. I don’t regret the decision at all.
The box set of photos was given to us exactly a week after our big day – incredible shots and quality. He’d captured so many shots (from various viewpoints) during each individual part of the wedding that it looked as though there was a second or even third photographer.
All my friends mentioned they didn’t even notice there was a photographer snapping these shots – he’s incredibly stealthy! More importantly, there was not a single bad photo in the set he gave us – the shots were beautifully framed, gorgeous colours, and everything looked so ethereal. There’s no doubt in my mind Andri loves what he does and it translates well into his work.
Thank you so much for capturing our day the way you did. We were able to walk through the day again with the various perspectives of our guests, and ours, thanks to your beautiful work!

Andri may be a quiet guy but he does some pretty explosive work. He is passionate about what he does and shows it through his work. We have met a lot of great photographers prior to choosing him as our wedding photographer.
What made us chose Andri was his sincerity in getting to know our story and his unpretentious personality. I must say it also helps that he is creative and has a good eye for detail. We absolutely love what he captured for us. Friends and family have expressed how beautiful and moving our photos turned out.
We are so grateful and honoured to have him as our photographer. If we get to choose again, we would still choose him, over and over.

We engaged Andri based on the kind of ambience we wanted from looking at his past work.
He is friendly, patient and professional. We wanted a photographer who was ‘invisible’ during our wedding but yet able to capture precious moments. But, whenever you need Andri for a photo or two, he is always there. Every guests marvelled at the pre-wedding photos/video when it was showcased at our dinner.
He was able to capture the rarest moments and expressions of us, our family and friends. We are so happy that we have engaged Andri. It’s one of the best choices we have made for our wedding! If you want the best photographs to remember your special day, this man is the photographer for you.
