He even helped my sister & now sister in law tie the courset on my dress! =) I've only seen some of the pictures & I cannot wait to see the rest! I would recoment Andy to any one!

We used Andy for our wedding in June of 2007. I was just going through my wedding albums and it just brought back so many great memories. He was able to capture every important part. I really do believe that a picture can really tell a story. You can just see the love and happiness in every picture.He did an amazing job and I was extremely pleased with his work and I did recommend him to many people because he truly does an amazing job!

Great photographer. We used him to took some pictures when we open up. The pictures turn out nice & just the way we imagine. We told him what we wanted it and he exceeded it. The photos were clear , vivid . Also, the pictures show the warm enviroment of the place & and look spacious. One of our employee was his customer and refer andy to do the job for us.

Andy was the BEST purchase we could have possibly made for our Wedding day. We can't deny that our expectations we pretty high being that my husband works in the entertainment industry as a camera opp but Andy with his tool belt of cameras nailed it! He was extremely professional, highly skilled and for me one of the most important things is that he was a joy to around. He make everyone feel comfortable and was able to capture everything without feeling like he was in our faces.There are so many shots that were captured that just take my breath away.
In short I would say that Andy captured the essence and the magic of our day and I will always look back on these pictures knowing that he was the Best choice we could have made!

From the moment I first contacted Andy, I thought wow he really goes out of his way to treat his customers with the quality service . He return my phone call and email quickly. My husband and i are both shy in front of the camera and being intimate in front of other people so we both felt a little awkward posing for romantic , show our love kind of things photos but he was managed to make us look comfortable and natural. We love the photos. We couldn't thank him enough for being flexible and coming down to us. It was a long way. We love you and this is how we support your business by doing review. You deserve it. Thanks for still remember our anniversary and keeping in touch .

Sandy, your make up skill is incredible. Thank you for making me look great at my wedding. I cannot say enough. And andy, thank you for much for your hard work at our wedding. Everybody who i talk to said that you were very humble, discreet , and keep a low profile. You didn't make a big appearance through out the event yet were able to take lots of amazing photo . We love you both as our vendor, Andy Sandy, ( isn't their name sound cute ) and they work very much as a team.

Andy is very passionate about photography and it shows in his work! He loves what he does and he wants to bring the best to the couple that he's capturing the memories for. Our wedding day is a once in a life time event and he was there to make sure he would capture all the memorable moments. He puts a twist on things which makes it very unique. If you are looking around for a photographer for any event, definitely don't hesitate to give Andy a call and check out what he can do for you. Tell him what you are looking for and allow his imagination and creativity to help you remember the occasion. Thanks Andy, we really appreciate all your hard work! We would highly recommend you

We just found andy at the last minute because our photographer cancel on us. He contact us right away after we contact him through the knot. He was able to make us calm & relaxed & felt much less pressure after we spoken to him . We were so worry . Lucky to us that our wedding was early in the morning and he had already book a wedding at 4 pm. The pictures came back on time according to the time frame in the contract. We were also worry that we never meet andy in the real life but have to give a deposit . We just speak on the phone but we felt a vibe that he was a professional & honest. So we didn't hesitate to mail him a deposit after he email us the contract. We really happy with him. Our pictures turn out very beautiful. More than we expected. Very natural candid. The group shot were awesome. He is very detail so when we took the family portrait of about 30 people, he make sure that everybody can be seen and wasn't block. That made me feel good because that was important for me AND I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO TELL HIM. Anyway, good photographer. Recommended.

I spent hours searching for a reliable and reasonable photographer for our wedding day. Andy was the utmost professional and wow, what a talented photographer! From our initial conversations, Andy was interested in the details of our special day and immediately began to plan. He asked all the specifics about location, schedule, highlights, family attending, colors, and theme. He arrived extra early on the day to scout the location. He was warm and friendly making it so easy to trust his direction and expertise as he guided us throughout the day. He got some of the most amazing shots of my husband and I, and our guests, that capture the beauty of the seaside location and the highs of our emotions. Every time I see the pictures I simply melt; they are so so special. Andy is worth every dime and goes above and beyond the work of a professional photographer. My husband and I really enjoyed working with him and love love our wedding photos! We recommend him highly.

we are happy with the result we got from home for brides wedding photography. When we first met andy & sandy, we knew he would be our photographer because his photography work is really beautiful. He showed us at least 10 albums . The poor guy drags all that heavy books and climb 2 stories to get to our apartment. He and sandy took their time to explain and go over our wedding to figure out which package would fit our budget and our event. At that time, the only thing we have a little concern was that he was the only photographer. We didn't think he would be enough to capture all of it. We read some if the review that clients wrote and decided that one photographer was enough. It turned out great. He was the only photographer but was able to capture the whole event. He didn't miss anything that was important to us. As a matter of fact, he took more than we expected. So we are happy that we didn't have to pay for a second photographer which was also offered to us at the time but he mentioned that we should save the money and he would be enough.
We like the fact that we got the make up and photography in one place. Sandy did a wonderful job. Her make up was natural and last all day.
We highly recommend this vendor.

i really like this wedding photographer, andy. He have done several gig for my family for family portrait. We have gotten along in the past so when it come to my daughter wedding, he earned the trust to be the guy. We get along pretty well with his funny character. He made us feel very confident that he is the one for the job. His pictures do speak for themselves. Very impressive porfolio due to the fact that he have been a photographer for a while now. And he does not charge an arm and a leg . So i do recommend wedding photographer, andy home for brides wedding photographer for the future bride or anyone have an event

andy is an excellent photographer. i was a best man at my friend wedding. It was a 12 hours wedding. what i really like about andy was the fact that he is just a 1 man team but he was able to cover a lot of stuff and not missing anything. He was very quick, always with a smile until the last minute of the nite. I was a groom man at another wedding last year . There was 2 photographer but the amount of pictures they took was much less than andy and the brides always have to wait for them. Plus they were missing some important shots. I recommend this vendor.

great great great great team. Andy Sandy. Andy is the photographer and Sandy is the make up artist.
We really glad that we hired you. What i really like Andy is the fact that everytime i needed him, he always there. He always focus on me and be with me quickly to take picture with the quest. He was always with me but yet was able to capture every where else . He was quick and always have at least 2 cameras strap on him. Sandy is very talent with color. She was able to get the look that i wanted . My colour was very natural . And her eye lash was very light and natural. It was very soft so it made my eye look natural. I recommend Home for brides wedding photographer make up to the future bride and groom.

My cousin got married and were so pleased at the amazing quality and creativity of Andy’s photos that we decided to hire him too. Andy is professional, easy to work with, and was very patient with my fiance and I during our engagement session. Having your pictures taken is a pretty intimate process, the photographer needs to understand your personality and shoot you in the best light. He worked with us as we tried to describe what we were looking for in the pictures. The pictures turned out great, and our friends and family have nothing but high praises for his work product. He was very patient, went above and beyond our expectations.

My wife and I arrived at City Hall without a professional photographer. To our amazing luck, a Home for Brides photographer was present and offered to shoot our wedding photos. We were very pleased with the proposed pricing and quality of the pictures we received. The service was great as they were very accommodating to our demanding schedule.

My fiance and I spent a lot of time searching for a photographer. I signed up for "the knot" and "wedding channel" , and picked a quite a few. Met a few and saw a few great work from others. I can say, WE are so glad that we choose the perfect photographer "ANDY" from "HOME FOR BRIDES"! We were very impress of all his talented work that he brought with him and of course a reasonable pricing! I would definitely refer him to my family/friends! Andy, made it so much fun and comfortable for us! Wedding event date is coming up soon and WE can't wait to work with him again! Great work and keep up the good work Andy!

Andy was great to work with. His photography skills are amazing. He's very fair on pricing and willing to work with you if you have a budget. He was on time (actually early) and dressed professionally. He had 3 cameras strapped on him. We started at SF City Hall for the ceremony and we went to the Exploratorium to have more photos taken. I must say Andy is literally the shi*! lol. He actually laid in what must have been duck poop and continued to work. He had tons of great ideas on posing and also took natural pictures as they happened. Photos are beautiful!! We are really happy with everything. Would I hire him again? YES!
