Photos full of vibrant colors and emotion!
Aloha! I'm Andy and I'm an Oahu-based couples and wedding photographer focused on the connection found between two people.
Whether it's on the wedding day, a more romantic day-after session, or even sessions celebrating anniversaries, my goal is to help you connect and to capture those moments as life-long memories.
Shooting weddings for over ten years now, I know how the days flow and have lots of insights into making a wedding day calm and memorable. I also have learned how to create space for real connection.
My images have won multiple international awards and honorable mentions in a variety of contests.
I love the islands and I'm more than excited to share some of my favorite things to do while you're here

Andy is an amazing photographer and a beautiful person. He worked smoothly with our busy day, gave us time to celebrate during our day and helped support us in so many little ways. How many times does your photographer come to the rescue when you need a track for the guarder toss? Andy even made the day extra special for our families with short beloved sessions with our parents. We really could not have asked for anything more and it all comes from the fact that Andy loves his job!Sent on 08/18/2016

Andy Stenz is a fantastic photographer and human being, and if you have a reason and the opportunity to book him for your wedding (or even just for a fantastic couple’s photo shoot), you absolutely should do so immediately.Sent on 10/25/2016
We first heard of Andy Stenz through our caterer, Chef Jack’s, who recommended him highly. He met us for coffee to talk about his style and his mindset regarding wedding photography, and we had such a good time chatting with him that we stayed almost 2 hours for a 1-hour meeting! It was just so fascinating for us to talk to someone so knowledgeable (he knows the wedding industry inside out), warm (he encouraged us to do our own thing as much as we could), and engaging (we had so many interests in common that it was like meeting an old friend!).
We loved working with Andy because he is engaging, entertaining, intelligent, thoughtful, and warm on a personal level, which you want in a photographer for such an important event. His work is stylish and he works hard to make sure he has the perfect shots, which can be purchased in numerous forms (albums, prints, canvases). He has tons of ideas for how to make the day all about the couple and helps make the day perfect beyond just the photography--really, he’s a man of all trades! We deeply appreciated his advice on several matters that we asked him about. Everyone loved him on the wedding day, from children to grandparents. His knowledge and skill are both very strong, and I wish we had unlimited money because we would fly to Hawaii for an annual (well, okay, maybe it would be every 5 years) photo shoot with Andy. He’s the best professional and the only person we could have imagined taking photos of us on our wedding day. I could go on and on about his skills and how wonderful he is, but I don't want you to spend any more time reading this review. Just contact him and book him already for a beloved session or wedding!

Andy is way more than just a photographer- he's an awesome person who can photograph your wedding day while also helping out with the schedule to keep everyone on track and organizing people for group shots- He got a lot of great shots on our wedding day that were made possible only because he had the vision and the drive to make them happen! We were blown away by how many of the photos we got back were our favorites! We loved that Andy always had time for us- we didn't feel like "just another client" to him- in fact, he was so helpful and quick to respond to our emails that we felt like there were no other clients. Andy felt more like a great new friend than a wedding photographer. He's still the only person we refer to by name; everyone else was "the DJ" or "The florist", but Andy has always been just Andy. :) Before we chose our photographer we worried a little bit about being "stiff" in our photos, but Andy made it so easy for us to feel relaxed and comfortable having our photo taken! We loved how fun the experience was.Sent on 12/08/2015
If you're looking for a fun, upbeat, and timeless experience, check out one of the the best photographers in the world, Andy Stenz. Andy is a pleasure to work with, and is on top of the details. You should trust him to help ensure your memories are captured perfectly.
I worked with Andy at a wedding I had officiated during the summer of 2016. Andy is a TOTAL professional, and by that I mean that he is approachable and friendly, does not draw attention to himself, took amazing traditional and creative shots! He is very relaxed when he works and that helped to put me at ease, but it is clear from looking at the bride and groom's photos that his confidence and style relax his subjects and allow him to capture the beauty and spirit of the moment.
Andy Stenz Photography captures couples’ big day perfectly; when one browses through the albums he puts together for his clients it feels like you were present at the wedding. The details captured are just...magnificent!
