Well where do we even start… We can not sing the praises of Andrea loudly enough. From the moment we first made contact with her enquiring about her services she has been an absolute rock for us in the lead up to our wedding. She went above and beyond, always willing to share her wealth of “wedding knowledge” with us assisting not only with the photography side of things but also providing advice on time lines for the day and little tricks on how to organise ourselves. As we live in Aus, it was at times daunting organising a wedding in another country but Andrea always replied to emails in a timely manner. When we were in NZ for Christmas and then again the 2 weeks prior to the wedding, Andrea made time in her day to meet us for a coffee and make sure we were clear on all the details. It;s these little details that mean so much.
In regards to the actual product - WOW is all we can say. We were absolutely blown away with what Andrea caught on camera. She has such an amazing eye that captured special moments in ways we could never imagine. We are so excited to receive the album she is compiling for us and have every confidence it will be just as amazing as the sneak peeks we have had so far.
We can not recommend Andrea highly enough, she was worth her weight in gold and then some. Thank you Andrea! Sarah and Watene x

When we first meet Andrea to discuss our wedding she was very helpful and had great suggestions for wedding photo ideas and locations, she was very professional in all our dealings with her. She even agreed to add extra time of her own to arrive at my house to capture the final touches and all the jewellery, flowers, dresses, shoes etc before leaving to go the the venue on my wedding day. On the day of our wedding, she was amazing, she worked very hard and was full of creativity. She is very easy to get along with, and very accessible when trying to get hold of her when asking questions.
We got to see a sneak peek the next day and then 2 weeks later we had all our images. Andrea exceeded our expectations! Our photos were absolutely amazing that 1 month later, I am still having trouble trying to find my favourites, I have so many favourites to choose from and I keep constantly viewing our amazing photos. . Andrea made us all feel so comfortable when she was photographing us and did an amazing job capturing all the family photos we required! The wedding photos are absolutely amazing, she is very talented and amazed at the quality and creativity and selection of photos. You can tell she takes pride in her work, She did an amazing job and I would not hesitate to have Andrea as my photographer next time I need a photographer. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!

I have observed Andrea’s photography skills on more than one occasion. I admire her professionalism, her relaxed, friendly approach and her ability to “read” the crowd. The fun, serious, emotional. and spontaneity shots she captures are awesome. Andrea is a very talented photographer. Christine.

Andrea exceeded my expectations! My photos were so amazing that 2 months later, I am still having trouble trying to find my favourites. Andrea made us all feel so comfortable when she was photographing us and did an amazing job capturing all the family photos we required! I love that she captured close ups and artistic shots of us. Everyone asks us who our photographer was and I have recommended her to so many friends and will continue to do so!
Wedding Date: January 25, 2014
Andrea is amazing!!
She was recommended to us by friends who have used her on at least 3 occasions.
Andrea was very professional but still had that personal touch to make everyone involved feel at ease.
The photos are fantastic & her enthusiasm for capturing that special shot is inspiring - that includes shoes off & lying in the dirt before the ceremony just to get the right angle.
Andrea provided us with plenty of package options and a fantastic follow up, definitely value for money.
Wedding Date: February 28, 2014
We met Andrea through an internet search three months before our wedding, when another person backed out. During the meeting, Andrea encouraged us to meet with other photographers, but having a winter wedding started to prove difficult as others headed away for holidays or to shoot overseas weddings. We knew anyway. After driving away from meeting Andrea, we knew that we liked her and her style of photography.
We were impressed with Andrea and her dedication to making sure everything was alright on the day. We told her our venue, and although she had photographed outside, she hadnt been inside. We had a meeting at the venue, and she came up and met us there afterwards. It was at that point that she discovered a low hanging light was about to be in the way of her capturing our entire bridal party during the ceremony (in relation to how far back she had to stand to have all 10 of us in the photo, the light would appear to be touching the grooms head). With this, she went away and contacted various people who had photographed there before and asked for advice on how to get around this. Andrea was already going the extra mile, weeks before our wedding. As it turned out, there was nothing we could do about the light, but we were grateful to be aware of the situation.
Andrea went to our first look location, the boardwalk at the beach, to plan where she was going to stand to capture us and those first moments. Andrea also joined us on the night before, at our wedding practice, just to ensure all was ok. We talked about our wet weather options and where our group photos etc would take place.
On the wedding morning, Andrea moved around between the girls and myself, not being in our faces but capturing lovely moments of the girls getting ready.
Our beach photos are beautiful, Andrea asked us to dance on a dune, but I was too precious at that point to get my shoes and dress sandy. I wish I had now, as I know with the end results that we have, that they would have been stunning photos.
We headed up to a kiwifruit orchard, and with simple backdrops of a hedge, a driveway, a grassy slope and some vines, Andrea took imaginative, creative, fun and beautiful photos.
Andrea gave great direction, she managed to get the boys to relax and smile…she photographed the most amazing sunset with us.
Looking at the photos now, we relive the day over and over again. She did not miss anything out….all the big moments and the inbetween ones….there are so many incredible photos to choose from.
We booked the complete package, and Andrea worked tirelessly (she only stopped when we told her to have some lunch with us) from 7 am through to 8.30 pm. She was meant to stay for our first dance, but we let her go early. Our speeches went on longer than planned, and we felt we really had had our money’s worth of her time, skill and ability.
Ive developed over 300 hundred photos to send out to our guests…the photos are perfect, I couldnt just choose one!....
I look forward to the opportunity of using Andrea again, Im sure there will be event in the future that she will be able to photograph for us.
Thank You Andrea, you are a rock star!

We can not express how happy we are with our wedding photos! They are absolutley perfect, Andrea captured every shot of the day. We are not only extremley impressed with the end result, but also how amazing Andrea worked on our big day (everything flowed so easy). We were very excited to see sneak peak photos the next day, then a week following the wedding, we had all our photos (1160 to be exact). We would never hesitate to use Andrea again as our photographer. Her work is FANTASTIC!
Wedding Date: March 23, 2013
Andrea did such a great job of our wedding photos I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She turned up early and stayed far longer than we thought she would to get all the shots she needed. She gave us great friendly direction to get the perfect shot and her eye for detail is very impressive! We were able to view our online album within days and had our photos on a disk in just over a week. We had so many photos to choose from it was incredible and we love pretty much all of them its so hard to choose!
Andrea is very prompt with communication and stays in touch in the lead up to the wedding, she is also available for any queries after the wedding as well as making albums down the track if you need her too. She is kind and enthusiastic as well as patient and passionate about her work. We cant say enough about how happy we are with our photos, if you are looking for a fantastic photographer at a very reasonable price Andrea is the one to hire!
Wedding Date: February 22, 2013

Thank you sooo much Andrea!!! We are over the moon with the variety and quality of photos you provided. Your skills and visions are like no other. The only hard part is to now decide which ones to frame!!! We would not hesitate in recommending you and will definitely be using you in the future.

Thanks again, The Millers xxxx

Andrea was fantastic through every step of the process and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Her friendly disposition and artistic eye created some fantastic wedding shots for us.
Thanks once again Andrea!

We would highly recommend Andrea to any couple who is looking for a photographer on their wedding day!
Andrea first impressed us by happily agreeing to meet with us at a cafe for our first meeting (Who doesn’t love meeting new people at a cafe? )! At the meeting she was professional, but also incredibly warm and friendly. We told her our desires for the day, and she explained to us how she would help make them all a reality. She then kept in regular contact via phone and email as we began to plan our wedding.
She then met with us at our venue a few weeks before the wedding, and we were impressed by her artistic talents! Because we were getting married at a rural retreat/farm, we were unsure of how the photos would go, but she was able to see beauty all around us and encouraged us not to leave the location for photos. She helped us to create a plan for how the day would go with her help.
On the day of the wedding, she was fantastic. She showed up early to have a good look around, and wasn’t phased when some of our photo locations had to be moved. We didn’t notice her during the ceremony, and we had fun with her during the group shots. She was fantastic with our bridal party, so relaxed and down to earth.
We were very surprised to have our photos just a few days later (She was running ahead of schedule!), and they were stunning. We have too many gorgeous shots to choose from!
Thank you Andrea for your hard work and dedication to our day. You managed to capture our joy in every photo!

Andrea met us at the beach to try to get some nice photos of my children that I could send back to my family overseas. The service that she provides is fantatic - she is professional, prompt and very friendly - my chldren felt at ease with her immediately and the resulting photos that we received were quite amazing. Andrea seems to be able to capture special moments in time - I am thrilled with the results and am proudly showing my photos to everyone who knows me. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Wedding Date: July 13, 2012
Paul and I really wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the fantastic job you did on our wedding day and the build up to our wedding day. You really managed to capture so much, in such great detail. You deserve a medal for managing Paul and his guys so well, they did tended to have their ears painted on:)
We viewed our photos in the link you sent us just days after our wedding over and over again, it was wonderful to share these with family and friends before we got the album and CD/ DVD. I couldn’t believe how quickly we received our album and disks after the big day and how thrilled we are with these, we will cherish these forever.
You only get one chance to choose the right person to do the photography on your big day and without question Andrea is that person.
Thank you so much.

I can’t recommend Andrea highly enough!!
She was available to us pre wedding for a number of meetings and always replied to any queries via email or phone promptly. On the day she was fantastic and the photo’s captured how I remember the day to be exactly!
Most of the time I wasn’t aware that Andrea was even there photographing….she was extremely unintrusive. All the photo’s are great…from ‘getting ready’ shots to the ceremony to the location shoot. Very difficult to choose which photo’s to display around the house as so many fantastic ones to choose from!
Andrea was also very good at giving direction to the young flower girls (age 4 & 5 at the time) and we have numerous fantastic pictures of the girls.
Everyone who has seen the photo’s has always commented on the standard of them and have been very impressed.
I would certainly recommend Andrea to photograph your wedding and have no doubt that you will love the pictures as much as we did!
Wedding Date: December 9, 2011
We were absolutely blown away by Andrea! Her photos were absolutely stunning - her eye for detail and creativity is impeccable. Our family and friends agree without doubt that they are the best wedding photos they have seen. Her communication before, during and after the day is fantastic and she ensures that the day is captured the way you want. There are so many photos we love! It is impossible to pick a favourite. We can’t stop looking over our photos and will continue looking back over them for the years to come.
Andrea, THANK YOU so much! We will recommend you without hesitation to anyone getting married in the Bay. We look forward to seeing you again for photo shoots with any additions to our family in the future.
