I am a photographer because I love the craft, and I photograph weddings because I find human expression, and the connections we make, truly captivating. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a firm believer in the institution – marriage is a big deal – but one of the reasons why I’m so damn excited to do what I do is because of the energy that exists in these meaningful celebrations. My style is intrinsically linked to my view that photographs are like windows. I won’t orchestrate your day with cliché or posed shots, or make you do the same thing five times. I also don’t tend to do pretty for pretty’s sake. I prefer real, natural, candid images, packed with emotion; the kind of images that transcend time and take you right back to how you felt in that moment.

As soon as we saw Andrew’s portfolio we knew he was the photographer for us due to his absolute mastery of blending into the day and getting such natural shots. And by jove he did not disappoint. From the engagement shoot through to the big day Andrew was the epitome of a pleasure to deal with – challenging us, bringing new ideas to the table etc. On the day I’ve never seen someone work so hard – one minute he’s getting a candid snap over your left shoulder and next thing you know he’s somehow on the opposite side of the room getting the cute baby making a funny face.
One of the things that hit me most was the number of guests on the day who commented on how great Andrew had been around them and how he never stopped! Needless to say the images as a result of his hard work are stunning.

“We saw some of Andrew’s previous work before asking him to be our photographer for the Big Day and it was love at first sight! His ability to capture “the moment” in its plasticity, drama, and high emotional content really captured our attention, and we weren’t disappointed! His pictures seem to come from another world, a cinematographic set of a Gilded Age movie! Besides his talent, Andrew is also a fantastic person: we immediately felt comfortable with him. He was always caring and very understanding when logistical issues affected his work, and super energetic throughout the evening. We will always keep Andrew in our hearts for his ability to immortalize with such professionalism and love the most important day of our life”

“From the very first moment we started to dream of our glorious wedding, it would be virtually impossible to overstate how much importance we placed on finding photographer perfection…and then we met the truly unbelievable, outstanding Andrew Brannan!! All our greatest wishes came true! On the most precious day of our lives so far, we were blessed not only to have his unrivalled talent behind the camera, but privileged to share our day with a man who instantly felt like a true friend. He captured simply the most precious moments, caught the heartfelt glances we never thought anyone ever could and gave us magical memories we shall truly treasure forever. We cried with joy when we first saw our sneak peaks…we were utterly mind-blown when the full selection arrived and, even now, six months on, we still well up every time we look at the beautiful photographs that exemplify the very essence of our pure delight! With every single photo, the emotion of our favourite-ever weekend pours straight back. It is amazing!! To this very day, Andrew continues to treat us like we are the only people who matter…just one of the many skills of the true professional we feel so privileged to have found. We shall forever thank our lucky stars to have been blessed with such a wonderful photographer…and such a truly kind, generous, gifted man. Eternal thanks Andrew. All our love!
