We met Andy at a bridal expo and I knew straight away that he would be the perfect fit for our wedding, his passion for photography is amazing to see and made it easier for us to relax as neither of us like having our photo taken.
Andy really went out of his way for us by driving us up the port hills to where the proposal happened, after the wedding (we had a day time wedding) so that we could get some sunset pictures which turned out beautifully, some of the photos were taken with the clouds down around us and they turned out amazing too.
Andy was super quick at giving us our copy of the photos (only a couple of days) and our book and canvas came within 2 weeks as well.
Thank you so much Andy for capturing our special day so brilliantly

We met Andy at the Wedding fair and we were both instantly taken with his enthusiasm and keenness to hear what we wanted out of the photos.. He was very competitive price wise and a true professional in his work. He really means for you to enjoy the day and work with you on what you want as well as having his own ideas. The first draft of photos were so good we had difficulty in picking fewer for the album ! He worked so well with the videographer and made everyone in the wedding party feel relaxed. Loved the end results and would recommend him to anyone.

We met Andy at the wedding expo in Christchurch. I really liked his photos and after a little bit of chat, we found out he’s very friendly and easy to talk to.
Andy also helped me a lot with finding a videographer and make-up trials. The package that he offered is amazing. Andy is not only very talented but also very passionate about what he does. He will make people forget about being camera-shy and you will remember how amazing your big day was. Andy was an absolute pleasure to work with, The whole experience with him was comfortable and relaxing. We highly recommend him to everyone!

Wedding Date: January 16, 2016
We couldn’t have asked for better. Andy was wonderful to work with and very professional. We were so happy that we made the right choice. Andy was one of the best parts of our special day.
When we first met with Andy, we were blown away with his ideas and how easy he made the whole process. We had met with other photographers before but we immediately knew that Andy was the one for us. He made us feel relaxed throughout the day and knew exactly what to do.
Kathryn and I would recommend Andy to anyone. I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job.
Thank you so much Andy
Wedding Date: March 5, 2016
We are extremely happy with our choice to book Andy as our wedding photographer. We highly recommend him to anyone who is considering booking him!
He is dedicated, extremely passionate about what he does and, best of all, he is very good at his job!
We have hundreds of amazing wedding photos which will forever remind us of the emotion that we felt on the day - he truly captured it!
Also, he is a really nice person and goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy.
When we compare our wedding photos to others we realise how lucky we are to have found Andy to capture our day.
Wedding Date: March 26, 2016
We thought Andy was fantastic on our Big DAY,we couldn’t fault him. Hes very friendly and approachable and professional to deal with.The photo’s were processed very quickly and wow we are overjoyed with the result we couldn’t ask for more.There is so many wonderful photo’s where he’s captured those special moments just perfectly.We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.
Wedding Date: February 26, 2016
Right from the start it was obvious Andy has real passion for what he does. He always has your best interests at heart and was thoroughly professional in all areas. We had several positive comments from our guests about Andy, and the rapport he struck up with everyone. The quality of his work is second to none and we are very happy with the photos from our special day. He captured our personalities perfectly and the mood of the day. We would recommend Andy without hesitation and have received nothing but glowing remarks from our friends and family who have seen the finished product.
The ‘test-shoot’ (you get to keep all the photos) several weeks before the wedding was a great idea and provided a point of difference from other photographers.
Wedding Date: February 13, 2016
Can honestly not rate Andy highly enough. He goes way above and beyond the call of duty, and even though we tested him- he is very patient and easy to work with. Andy captured our day perfectly and the photos truly reflect who we are. We would recommend this man to anyone and everyone
Wedding Date: February 6, 2016
We had originally booked another photographer for our wedding but the closer we got we began to get cold feet. I met Andy at a wedding fair and to be honest I thought his price must be too good to be true…something had to be wrong with his photography style or something was wrong…but we trusted him and trusted our gut and man did it pay off!!! Andy gave us the most amazing pre wedding shoot to get us used to him being around and the photos were beautiful. On our wedding day Andy pretty much became part of the family. ..he got on so well with everyone, had a laugh with the bridal party and made us feel super calm. We changed where we wanted photos taken the day before the wedding and Andy adapted what he had planned to the new scenery and came up with some fantastic shots on the spot. He thought of things we hadn’t. ..to be honest….styling photos was the last thing on my mind leading up to the wedding…but Andy nailed it. Our photos are beautiful. The short video he put together of our photo collection had me and my family and friends in floods of tears. Andy…you truly do love what you do…it shows in the way you treat your clients and more importantly in the beautiful photos you produce. We are so grateful we got to have you there with us. Thank you so, so much.
All our love

We met Andy at the Bridal Show last March.
Andy was open to our ideas but eager to help us when we needed inspiration. He was ready, punctual, creative, and worked so fast and hard and produced photos we will treasure forever.
Andy was friendly and approachable to our family and friends and was very patient and caring towards our daughter, Emily and went with the flow with her.
Wedding Date: February 7, 2016
We found Andy Khomenko when we visited a bridal show in Christchurch. We were happy when we first meet him and thought he was a genuinely nice person. Andy spent a very long day with us and took a lot of amazing photos. We are very happy with the work that Andy put into our day and the great care and detail he put towards our photos. If you want an amazing photographer please go with Andy Khomenko and you will not be let down. Thanks Andy for documenting our day with a beautiful slideshow and many many wonderful pictures. We are very thankful to you. Love from Bonnie and Rodrick Edmond.

Wedding Date: February 7, 2015
Thank you Andy for helping to make our day so special! You were amazing. I normally dislike having my photo taken and will avoid it at all costs but with you we were both so relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Your photos are beautiful and your follow up is great. Everyone at the wedding was very impressed with you. We were so surprised looking through the photos at how many photos you managed to take without us noticing! We cant wait for the album to arrive. These photos are something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you so very very much for being a part of our special day.
Wedding Date: November 28, 2015
Andy is the most professional, amazing, friendly & fun photographer to work with. He can make even the most photo conscious people relax & be their natural best selves. He owns that special sense to guess what people like & create an easy breezy environment for everyone. We have used Andy’s services twice so far & will recommend him highly to everyone.
Wedding Date: December 13, 2015
Where do I start! Andy is so passionate about his work and it really shows in his pictures. We had our first child 7 months before the wedding and Andy kindly let us bring her to the pre-wedding shoot so we now have some amazing family photos as well as our wedding photos. I suggested a couple of photos i wanted to create on our wedding day and he had no problem doing these. Andy also suggested lots of different areas of our venue so now we have the most amazing variety of photos. Not only does he do a fabulous job, we had about 10 images as a sneak peak 2 days after the wedding and all our photos plus a 10 minute slide show within 5 days. Our bridal party loved Andy adn said he made them all feel so relaxed and gave us all tips on how to stand etc so the photos looked natural. We are so greatful to Andy for capturing all the precious amazing moments of our special day!
Wedding Date: November 21, 2015
I first met Andy at a wedding expo in Christchurch and fell in love with his talent. He was so amazing at what he did.
The package we purchased with Andy was amazing and he captured our special day perfectly. It was a magical day and I get to relive it over and over again when I look at our photos.
I would highly recommend him to any couple searching for that right person to capture their special day.
He was discrete but captured it all and made all of use feel at ease. His experience and passion for photography were inspirational and exceptional. He really does love it.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Andy for your amazing creativity we are forever thankful. We will be back for other photo shoots in the future xx
Wedding Date: March 7, 2015
When we first started looking for a wedding photographer it was a minefield. Many were twice as much as what Andy charged and also were limited in the time that they spent at the wedding. Andy came up to our wedding the day before in Hanmer Springs and took the time to find some stunning locations away from our venue. We found Andy easy to connect with and someone that really listened to what we wanted from our wedding. He’s really passionate about his job and goes the extra mile to make sure you’re happy with the final outcome. He was very unobtrusive at the wedding and got the most out of all the guests on the day. I will be recommending Andy to any potential couples in the future!
Wedding Date: February 15, 2015
Both my husband and I found Andy an absolute pleasure to deal with. His communication prior to our big day was superb. On the day he was punctual, we are extremely happy with the photos we have and found some shots very creative. If I could do it all again I would choose Andy
Wedding Date: January 3, 2015
Andy is AMAZING!!!!!!
We cannot stress enough how happy and impressed we are with Andy and the quality of his work.
Our wedding was in Tekapo, we thought we would struggle to find photographer that would travel but Andy was only too happy to make the trip from Chch.
Andy is so passionate about photography and it shows in the finished product. We are blown away with the photos we have received, how quickly we got them after the wedding, and the cost of the package.We can not stop boasting about Andy to our friends and family.
Andy was an absolute pleasure to work with, He made the whole experience a very fun and relaxed one. We had so many compliments about him, from our guests.
We will definitley be using Andy to capture the next amazing chapter in our life together
Wedding Date: October 13, 2014

Wedding Date: October 10, 2014
Photos are the only way on capturing the memory of your day forever and if you are looking for a photographer who can create a lasting memory of your day, then Andy is the one!!!! We will be forever grateful to him for providing an amazing day. Every time we look at our photos we are taken back to that very moment. From the time Andy arrived he made us feel at ease and we have never laughed so much (we even took photos of him!!). He has the ability to capture every moment, even the times we were unaware of. All our guests have commented about great he was and it was our pleasure to have you sit among our guests at dinner. We are looking forward to catching up again soon for another photo shoot.
Andy, you are an absolute professional with a natural ability to make everyone smile, Thank you for being part of our magical day, we will never forget the gift you gave us - a life long memory!!

Wedding Date: October 4, 2014
To say that Andy “goes the extra mile” is an understatement, because he goes far beyond that. Right from the start of the special day to the very end Andy is committed to capturing every moment and angle possible without being intrusive. Even our guests commented on how amazing Andy was as he explores every option available for the perfect frame.
Andy is a very open and sincere person and goes out of his way to make you feel at ease during the photography. I was especially appreciative of his “pre-wedding shoot” which helped me and my bride-to-be find our best angles and get comfortable being around him.
At the end of the day we have thousands of brilliant photos which according to our friends and colleagues are “the best” they have seen.
I am very grateful to Andy for helping us preserve every detail of our wedding day. After all, when the cake is eaten, and the presents opened, what do you have left apart from photos…. right?...
Wedding Date: September 13, 2014
AMAZING!!! Is what all our guests have been saying about Andy and his work. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. From the first time we met Andy we knew he was going to be perfect for us. It was more like catching up with a friend who had a true interest in our wedding than meeting someone for the first time. Nothing was too much of a problem for Andy and he put us at ease and made me feel comfortable having my photo taken…....alot!!!!
Andy didn’t miss a single moment of our special day - from hair and make up to the last people leaving. The comments we’ve had on our wedding photo’s are an absolute credit to Andy and his passion for photography. We couldn’t be happier and are so pleased to have had his creative input in our big day. We now have stunning and fun photo’s to always remember our special day and all our friends and family that were with us.
We would recommend Andy to anyone, especially if you want a personal, friendly touch with a lot of creativity. We will definitely be using Andy again in the future for photography.
Wedding Date: April 5, 2014
Andy is an amazing photographer and such a nice guy! He has a genuine interest in making sure you feel happy and comfortable. The engagement shoot is a great time to get to know him and he is always so excited about his work!
When we received our photos we were amazed at how wonderful they were, the slideshow he put together of our wedding day made my mum cry!
We would definatly recommend him and wish him all the best for his career
Love from Monique and Josh
Wedding Date: May 2, 2014
Andy was an amazing photographer! We are so grateful for the time he put in to us from the first meeting, through the pre-wedding shoot and then the wedding. He made us feel really comfortable, helped suggest ways to look more natural when I froze up and just generally got me to relax and enjoy it rather than being nervous and tense so that when the wedding day rolled up I didn’t worry at all about the photos. Having the pre-wedding shoot was enormously helpful and we have some stunning photos from it to look back at - he even let me include the dogs!! Andy is awesome to deal with, very open and honest and really friendly and engaging. He had our photos sorted and ready to give back to us less than 5 days after the wedding! Wholeheartedly recommend him and will be coming back in the future for baby photos no doubt
Wedding Date: February 8, 2014
Andy is fantastic. The photos were stunning and made me feel beautiful. Andy has a great passion for photography at a really good price. No complaints at all. I highly suggest Andy as a photographer fie your wedding. My brother has booked him for his wedding and my sister was the first to use Andy at hers last year. Thanks Andy.
Wedding Date: March 15, 2014
WOW! We couldn’t be happier! Andy was such an incredible photographer and we were so glad to have him as part of our wedding.
We were a bit nervous about the pre-wedding shoot, but Andy was fantastic. He very quickly had us laughing and at ease - all very naturally. Even though I don’t normally enjoy having my photo taken, Andy made the pre-wedding photo shoot fun for both Glenn & I. He was so helpful and made us feel completely relaxed about having photos taken on our wedding day.
We are so grateful how long Andy stayed at our wedding - he captured an amazing number of beautiful shots, from the scenery, getting ready, to the ceremony, having fun with our bridal party after the ceremony, throughout the reception, some photos under the stars at night, and even of our first dance! So many guests commented how awesome Andy was - perfect for getting people laughing and relaxed, talking easily with everyone.
The wedding photos themselves are just awesome. Again, we’ve received so many brilliant comments about how impressive and beautiful the photos are - and how perfectly they capture us as a couple.
Andy, thank you so much! You have far exceeded our expectations of what wedding photography can be, and have been fantastic to work with. We had heaps of fun having our wedding photos taken… and the bridal party did too! We would absolutely recommend you as a photographer to anyone. Perfect professionalism, quality, and exceptional creativity and value for money too! You have gone the extra mile for us - and we truly appreciate it… THANK YOU!
Wedding Date: March 8, 2014

Andy was an absolute pleasure to have photographing our wedding. He made everybody feel extremely comfortable, I am typically quite nervous in front of a camera but he gave me great advice and helped me relax. Andy had all our photos ready in under a week from our wedding which was so quick! And we LOVE all the photos that he took, he has a special talent in capturing people’s personalities through photos.
Wedding Date: January 10, 2014
Wow! From the first conversation we had with Andy we felt that we connected with him well and he put us at ease. He’s a very professional, funny and creative person which is everything you need in a photographer. He worked flawlessly on our wedding day and we hardly even noticed he was there. The photos and slideshow looked so perfect!
We are so grateful that he was a part of our wedding day. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.
Wedding Date: December 28, 2013
Andy captured the story and emotion of our wedding. He was enthusiastic and genuinely enjoyed himself. The photos that he took were vibrant and made good use of our venue. The only disappointments were that we didn’t get any photos of the groom and his parents or the bride and groom and parents together. I have and will recommend Andy as a wedding photographer.
Wedding Date: October 12, 2013
Andy is absolutely amazing!!! We got our photos yesterday and we are absolutely and utterly blown away by the photos, the details, the creativity in the shots, the colors & all the special and little moments that have been captured!
We could not have asked for a better photographer, from the pre-wedding photo shoot to the wedding day itself and through to the design of our album we can not thank Andy enough for everything, we will forever be thankful for the memories and the amazing album we have of our special day.
Andy is not only fantastic at his job but you can see his passion for photography shines through in every photo he takes.
We will definitely be getting Andy to do a pregnancy shot and albums and family shots for our baby’s first year in the years to come!
Wedding Date: November 9, 2013
Andy is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, he definitely exceeded our expectations! Andy went above and beyond to capture every single moment for the minute makeup went of to well after our first dance (Guests thought he was a family friend because of how late he stayed) Andy is very dedicated and passionate about his photography which shows in our stunning photographs We could not be happier! He is a excellent value for money and we are so happy with choosing Andy to capture the memories of our very special day, thanks soooooo very much!!!
Wedding Date: September 7, 2013
Andy is an amazing photographer who will create the most memorable photos for your special day. Andy made the whole process so easy from start to finish. We really appreciated his professionalism, enthusiasm and sense of humour.
He even took the time to take us out on a mini photo shoot prior to put us at ease and build the rapport that was so important for the actual wedding photos.
Andy has an obvious talent as a photographer and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting fabulous photos for an important occasion.
He is exceptional value for money, he is very creative, it was a fantastic experience and we know we made the best choice possible when we picked him.

Wedding Date: March 9, 2013
ANDY!!!!!! You have far exceeded any expectations we had.
Looking for a wedding photographer?? Your search ends with Andy, the decision was easy for us, and only confirmed again and again through the whole process. Do not be fooled by his very reasonable price, Andy went above and beyond, and then some on our wedding day - almost 10 hours in total.
Thank you thank you thank you for making such awesome memories of our very special day. Andy made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and made every shot tell its own story. A true professional, and his passion for his work shines through in every photo he took (and there were over 700 in total), many of which we didn’t even realise he had taken, which is a compliment in itself.
Overall rating does not go high enough, easily 150 out of 100. Can’t wait to see the album when its completed.
Andy, again, many many thanks!!!

Wedding Date: March 23, 2013
Andy is very professional in all aspects of his photography, he is also very accomodating to all involved in the wedding party and to the guests. We are so pleased with our photos and the way Andy captured our whole day for us to look back on in the years to come. There is not a single photo we are not happy with and we will always be so grateful to Andy. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Andy to any person whom wants excellent photography for such a reasonable price. I must also mention the feedback from all our guests about Andy is just amazing, he is just the best.
Wedding Date: November 10, 2012
we had Andy as our wedding photographer and love all the photos. So many photos we didnt even know he had taken, he did such a wonderful job and would recommend him to everyone. Cant wait to get the photos hanging on our walls
Wedding Date: February 8, 2013
Recently Andy photopgraphed our wedding, he had the task of trying to capture over 200 people. He was absolutley amazing, i could not reccommend him more. When i went through the photos with him, i found so many that i didnt even know he was taking, he was so discrete. I could not be happier with all of the photots. Hes so friendly and really good with the kids as well. Everyone from the wedding were raving about him and just couldnt wait to see our photos.
Wedding Date: February 2, 2013
We booked and paid a steep deposit to our photographer a year and 3 months out from our wedding. A few months afterwards one of our friends told us about Andy as they were using him for their wedding. We decided that we need to look into this as he sounded amazing. So we went to meet him and have a look at his work. We were completely blown away by his talent and the quality of his work. His prices are so reasonable, he had the complete package. We immediately decided that even though we would loose the other deposit we would much rather have Andy do our wedding. My husband and I both agree that it is the best decision we could ever make. He is really good at what he does, fun to be around and very professional. Neither of us really like being in photos so he had his work cut out for him. Our photos are amazing, better than I could have dreamed they would be and everyone has commented on how amazing they look and how good Andy was on the day. Highly recommend him to anyone who needs any photos taken. We can’t say thank you enough Andy you caught our most special memories beautifully and we really appreciate it.
Wedding Date: January 26, 2013
Andy was one of the best suppliers we used for our wedding. He is passionate , talented, fun and reliable. He spent hours with us doing our trial shoot and almost all day on our wedding day and all this for a VERY reasonable price! Needless to say the photos came out amazing !!! Thank you Andy, your photos now help us to relive our special day time and time again.
Wedding Date: February 10, 2012

We hired Andy as our wedding photographer and he did such an amazing job!!! We were not sure who to go with when we were looking around however Andy offered us an engagement trial to test his services and the photos were stunning. He took so much time in getting the right shots and he really cared for the work and the memories he was creating for us. We were so thrilled to find him and anything was possible. There was no restriction with times or photos everything was just for us at such a reasonable price, he was with us for over 1o hours on the day and always did more than we expected or asked. Our wedding was amazing due to the people we had. Andy is accommodating, passionate and extremely easy to work with, his photos were fabulous and I very much recommend his services, all the best x
Wedding Date: December 21, 2012
