Andy was amazing! From start to finish he was very professional and did an unbelievable job with our engagement and wedding pictures. He is very flexible to changing circumstances and his calm and easy-going nature was refreshing on our hectic wedding day. Also, his experience is readily apparent - there were times when we didn’t know exactly what to do (cutting the cake, how to pose for the first look, where to have the family portraits, etc.) and Andy was quick to help us out. He did a great job organizing our large families during the portrait session and all the pictures turned out perfect! I highly recommend Andy and Studio 517 to any couple looking for amazing wedding pictures they will treasure for a lifetime!Sent on 09/29/2017

We were definitely lucky to have Andy as our wedding photographer. From our very first meeting to his communications to the day of the wedding, his professionalism shone through and he was a delight to work with. He was also really helpful in giving us excellent suggestions in terms of how to frame our wedding day plan so that we had time to take pictures of all the key events. On the day of the wedding, he arrived early, walked around to get the lay of the church and ensured he captured all the pre-wedding shots. He was also awesome while capturing pictures of the groom and the bride getting ready (Andy has definitely been to many weddings, this was obvious from his knowledge around how to best wear the different items in a tuxedo which were a mystery to us). He also ensured he captured pictures of all the key moments despite having to work with some restrictions with regards to where he could stand in the church. It was remarkable how many shots he got at different angles even though we really didn't see him around (he blended in perfectly and made himself unobtrusive). Following the wedding, He was very patient with a large number of family photographs and worked with us to get some really bride and groom shots in a small tree grove the parking lot (you would never guess the photos were shot there looking at them). He also did a fantastic job capturing the key events in the reception. Post the wedding, he had fantastic ideas for a sunset photo shoot in Chambers bay and captured some amazing photographs. To cap it off, within two weeks of the wedding he had all the final photographs up on his site for us to view and promptly sent the photos in a beautiful USB drive shortly after.Sent on 09/25/2017
We would strongly recommend Andy for any of your wedding photography needs, you just can't go wrong with him.

My husband and I could not have chosen a better photographer than Andy and his partner! They were absolutely amazing to work with...fun, hard working, and paid attention to every last detail! Our photos turned out even better than we could've imagined! <3Sent on 08/01/2016
While we were on our honeymoon we had friends get a hold of Andy and they asked him to please send a photo of us from our wedding because they wanted to have it framed with our wedding vows to surprise us when we got home. Andy was more than happy to edit and send a photo of us to help with our surprise before our return.
