Wonderful from Start to Finish!

Just yesterday, a friend was looking at our wedding photos and said, “wow, whatever you paid your photographers — it wasn’t enough.” THAT’s how beautiful our photos from Bookhouse Collective turned out. My husband and I had the absolute pleasure working with Andrew and Noa for our destination wedding in my hometown of Buffalo, NY, and they were wonderful at every turn. From helping us throughout the planning process, to their warm professionalism on our wedding day (not to mention flexibility when we had to reschedule for COVID!) We couldn’t have asked for a better team and can’t thank them enough for making our wedding such a great experience.

Best Wedding Photographers I could have asked for!

I knew from the moment I picked my wedding venue in a remote part of upstate NY on a FARM (4 hours from NYC!) I would have hurdles to tackle to find vendors that were up to my standards and that would be able to accommodate such a remote destination wedding.
After my first interaction with Bookhouse Collective I knew that I was in good hands, and they would make my vision come to life, and they did JUST THAT!
Meredith and Andrew from Bookhouse Collective arrived on site Friday Afternoon as my wedding party was arriving and photographed my ENTIRE wedding weekend from the grounds of the farm to the rehearsal dinner, the morning after brunch and EVERYTHING in between, they did not miss a single moment OR a single detail.
Even once the wedding was over, we remained in contact throughout the editing process. Within 2 weeks they had emailed me a sneak peak of my photos and I was BLOWN away, not to mention once I received the entire album how incredible their attention to my little details were.
My experience with Bookhouse Collective was a D.R.E.A.M and I would recommend them 100 times over for your wedding no matter how small/large near or far!

The extra mile + Beautiful Memories preserved

I had photographer Andrew Zaeh photograph my wedding in Mexico. To me, the photographs were the most important piece of my wedding, because that is what I had to hold onto that day. After his lighting rig did not end up on the same flight, he rushed from the airport and quickly set up a plan b to photograph my rehearsal. He literally RAN to make sure we got what we needed before sunset. The next day at the wedding, he scouted locations for pre-wedding pictures and then spent nearly all day preparing to get the perfect shots at the actual wedding. The result are literally works of art. I have my photos blown up on canvas, and I consider them part of the artwork in my house. He did an exceptional job, and I am forever grateful for the extra mile(s) he took to ensure that I had visual memories of that day.

Meredith has spent over 12 years working in the commercial music photography space, helming photo and video productions for major record labels and indie artists alike. Having been formally trained in the darkroom, she cut her teeth photographing concerts in her hometown of Houston, TX before moving to New York to attend NYU.

Touring internationally with Rihanna early on in her photography career affirmed her passion for and versatility in the arena of portrait photography. Since then, she’s photographed press campaigns and album covers for some of your favorite artists over the years (to name a few, Glass Animals, Kanye West, Leon Bridges, Alessia Cara, and Of Monsters and Men).

Meredith found her way to Super 8 filmmaking as a means of being able to make motion pictures on her own; in the years since, she has directed and produced many music videos in this uniquely sentimental format.

When she’s not creating, Meredith can be found at home with her cats, taking in an episode of the X-Files, doing the crossword, or simply being amongst dear friends and family.
