Andrea is the Best! Elegant. Classic. Timeless.Reviewed on 2/23/2015 Lindsey
When browsing through the many photographers in the Nashville area, my husband and I kept coming back to Andrea Hallgren and her amazing work! There is just something about how she is able to evoke all this emotion when you look at her pictures. After browsing through her website, we felt like we knew these people in her portfolio! My family is so very important to me, and I wanted to make sure we had a photographer who would capture those intimate moments that we could cherish for the rest of our lives. I knew Andrea would be absolutely perfect! Along with my awesome parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends, I'm fortunate enough to have my Nanny (Mom's Mom) and my Grand-daddy (Dad's Dad) still living and ready to party! Andrea really captured those wonderful candid shots of everyone that I still look at every single day. For those of you who are worrying about your fiancé and how they'll do in front of a camera, not to worry. My husband is not too comfortable in front of a camera, but Andrea made him feel just fine. She's great at letting your "poses" happen naturally, and her work will definitely not date itself. Andrea's work is classic and elegant. If you're looking for pictures with a T-Rex photoshopped in the background, you might want to look elsewhere. :) From the minute Andrea arrives to shoot your wedding day, she's nothing but genuine. She's cool, calm and collected. A true professional. No matter what wedding curveballs get thrown your way, she's there to help make sure your day is perfect! She's an absolute angel, and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did! Please do yourself a favor and go ahead and check this box off your list, and book Andrea. I know you will not be disappointed.
Great Person, Beautiful Photos!Reviewed on 10/10/2013 Sarah G
Andrea is so great to work with!! From the beginning she was completely willing to work with us on what we had in mind for the wedding and photography and also with pricing. Nashville was an out-of-state wedding for us but Andrea was available on email, gchat, and phone to talk about everything before the big weekend. She made great recommendations for the photography schedule that made the day go very smoothly, but she also always listened to what we wanted too. She showed up early on wedding day full of enthusiasm and was great to spend the day with! Even friends in the bridal party commented that they knew she was getting great photos because they saw her all over the place at the reception that night. :) I hope we get to work with Andrea again in the future!
Best wedding photographer everReviewed on 10/04/2013 Lindsay W
Andrea went above and beyond to help is capture amazing pictures of our wedding day. We found out a few short weeks before our wedding that the photographer we originally contracted with would not be able to do our wedding due to health issues. He told us that the only person he would recommend to step in was Andrea. She took the time to meet my husband and I personally to discuss what we wanted and to discuss plans for our wedding. She traveled to Pensacola, Fl to photograph for is. She was there to capture the wedding, rehearsal, and the reception. I have never been happier with my photographs than when I got the nearly 2000 images from the 2 days she spent with us. Andrea captured everything perfectly. I can not recommend her services enough. If we have family pictures taken in the future she will be the first person we call. We can not wait to order a wedding photo album from her to add to our wonderful wedding memories!
The bestReviewed on 10/04/2013 V S
Andrea is thoughtful, attentive, kind, and an amazing artist when it comes to wedding photography! She made my husband and I feel super comfortable during both our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day and our families loved her. Highly recommended.
Wonderful ExperienceReviewed on 10/04/2013 Jonathan H
Andrea made my fiancé and I feel very at ease and comfortable. She is really fun to work with! She was very patient with us and gave us great direction. The pictures turned out great!
Fall Wedding - Paducah, KYReviewed on 10/04/2013
We chose Andrea Hallgren to photograph our special day two years ago, and could not have made a better choice! Andrea was incredibly flexible and understanding of our vision for our day and how we wanted it captured. At the same time, she and her second shooter (who was equally fantastic) took artistic liberties where appropriate to give us an outstanding final product and allow the day to go as smoothly as possible - capturing every detail we didn't even realize we would want captured. Lastly, our wedding album Andrea designed is truly a piece of art. We ultimately chose Andrea because there is not another photographer in the Nashville area who creates a more outstanding way to preserve our pictures. We highly recommend Andrea Hallgren photography - outstanding quality and service for an extremely reasonable price!
Amazing photographers with incredible resultsReviewed on 10/04/2013
Andrea came into our wedding at the last minute due to some unforeseen circumstances and it was like she had been with us every step of the way. She put together travel arrangements for herself very quickly and came all the way down to Florida to photograph our wedding. She was down there a few days in advance and was constantly touching base with us leading up to the event. She did such a great job during the rehearsal and wedding and is very good at staying in the background. She made sure to capture all the important moments of our day so that we could remember them forever even though some of the details were foggy due to running around and talking to everyone. She even got several shots of some of the events that we missed due to the whirlwind that is a wedding. I highly recommend her for any photography needs you may have!
Amazing photography, amazing personReviewed on 10/04/2013 Sara M
My fiance and I are not exactly comfortable in front of the camera, so I was a little nervous going into our engagement session. But Andrea is just so much fun to be around! She made us both feel so comfortable and relaxed. She's the best! She gave us great suggestions and directions that looked natural and not overly posed. Our pictures turned out beautifully and we can't wait to work with her again on her wedding day!
great photographer - super nice personReviewed on 10/04/2013 Kelly C
I used Andrea for my wedding in May 2010. Her work is wonderful, she got so many great shots of every moment that I wanted to capture. Also, she has such a fun personality that every one in the wedding party and my family had a good time working with her. In March 2013 my good friend (who was one of my bridesmaids) used Andrea as her photographer as well, and again Andrea did a spectacular job there too!
Love my wedding photos!Reviewed on 10/04/2013
I got exactly what I wanted out of my wedding photos from Andrea. Her and her assistant were on time, attentive, helpful, fun, calming, and of course professional. She followed all the requests I asked for and came up with fun and unique ideas of her own. I love my photos and my wedding photo site was beautiful and easy to review/purchase. For a late Oct wedding, my photos were ready to review and delivery in time for Christmas too! :) I felt we put extra effort and money into finding the perfect photographer for our special day and Andrea proved us well!
Amazing!Reviewed on 10/03/2013 Monica D
Andrea was amazing! She was able to capture every special moment of our wedding day, including all of our special requests. The pictures turned out amazing, and we could not be more happy.
Beautiful Photos and a Beautiful PersonReviewed on 6/10/2013 Debbie Z
I cannot say enough about Andrea. We used her for our engagement photos and our wedding photos. They turned out just gorgeous and I could not be happier with the quality of photos and enormous selection. The price was very reasonable as well, especially considering that Andrea had to travel out to the sticks twice where my family's farm is located. She made Ross and I feel very comfortable with her. We just kind of forgot that she was there and that we were being photographed and we reverted to our natural selves. None of the photos looks posed or unnatural. Andrea is much more than a photographer though. You will have moments as a bride where, no matter how much you love your fiancé, soon to be in laws, bridesmaids, family, etc, you want to tell them to shove it and go sit in a closet by yourself. Andrea, on a couple of chance phone calls, talked me down off the ledge so to speak. She is very patient and calm and was able to herd the cats on my wedding day so that we got all the photos that were important to us. And if all of that doesn't convince you she is the best choice, I had several friends and bridesmaids tell me they would like to get married again just to get wedding pictures like mine. I highly recommend Andrea and her team.
Priceless photosReviewed on 5/29/2013 Kate G
I loved working with Andrea! Our photos are even better than I could've imagined. They're beautiful and timeless. No contrived poses, just my husband, me, and our families and friends looking happy and natural. Andrea is great at making everybody feel comfortable in front of the camera, and at wrangling families for group shots. Our reception candids are awesome, too. They really capture the mood and everybody looks incredible. We have more than 1,000 photos, and they're all so amazing that I don't know how I'll decide which ones to put in the album.
Exactly what we wanted!Reviewed on 5/14/2013 Allison S
Andrea was highly recommended by one of our best friends that used her a few years ago. She was so sweet and great to work with. We can't say enough good things about her! We had a large wedding party and she was great with making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. We also had a lot of kids in our wedding and she was great with getting them to cooperate while taking pictures. :) She captured all of the sweet moments that we wanted plus so many more. We could not be happier with all of our pictures! We would definitely recommend Andrea!
Fantastic to work withReviewed on 11/06/2012 Taylor P
Andrea takes the time to learn you and your wedding day style. She is prepared for the day and ready to get all the best shots you want! She also kept me calm during a stressful and emotional day. Can't wait to see our pics!
Just what we wanted!Reviewed on 8/14/2012 Lauren H
We can't say enough good things about Andrea Hallgren Photography!! Andrea is not only great at capturing those memorable moments and little details that you may miss during your day, she also was great at making our family and friends feel comfortable in front of the camera. This is key when you have a large wedding party. She and her partner did a fantastic job taking all the shots we requested and creatively capturing the site, our guests, and all of the details and decor we spent so many months preparing and planning out. Having hundreds of top-notch images from which to choose, we feel like our once-in-a-lifetime day was not only successfully captured, but in such a way that exceeded our highest expectations. Thanks Andrea!!
Awesome Job!Reviewed on 10/14/2011 Beth M
Very sweet person and excellent photographer!! Highly recommend!
Wonderful!!!!Reviewed on 10/08/2011 Meredith S
I am so thrilled that Andrea was available to photograph my wedding! I was happy with every photo she took and her work is phenomenal! From the first time I spoke with Andrea on the phone, I felt very comfortable with her and she made me feel like a friend and not just a client! I knew when I met her that I could relax and be sure that she would not only make me feel comfortable to be myself in the pictures but also know that she would deliver quality work. Her expertise is definetly worth what she charges. I am so happy with the results and they turned out even better than I imagined!!! I also hope that we will be able to have her photograph our family when we have children one day! :)
A Joy to work with!Reviewed on 10/05/2011 Libby A
I could not have asked for a better photographer! From the moment I spoke with her on the phone, I knew she was the one for me! She was so calm, easy going, and fun, and managed to capture every second of our wedding day. We had a rather large wedding party, and every person that met her commented on how wonderful she was. Her photos are gorgeous!! I want them all!! I had so much faith and was not worried one bit that should would take beautiful photos. She started photographing our day with all of the bridesmaids getting ready, and continued until we left the reception. LONG DAY!! But she was so positive and excited for us all day. I highly recommend Andrea and her staff. I have told all of my friends what a great experience we had. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Above and Beyond!Reviewed on 7/18/2011 Dee Dee D
Andrea and her assistant photographer were wonderful. She was so helpful throughout the wedding planning. She created a photo time line for the day of that really helped keep everything on track. She captured every special moment throughout the day. She really does a wonderful job a catching the real emotions throughout the day.
Andrea is exceptional!!!Reviewed on 6/21/2011 Crystal F
My husband and I interviewed 5 photographers and we are so thankful we chose Andrea! Although every wedding vendor is important, choosing an exceptional photographer is imperative. After the wedding you only have your wonderful memories left, along with your photographs. That’s why it’s crucial to choose an exceptional photographer, and Andrea is exactly that! She is the epitome of professionalism, is extremely organized before and during the wedding, and has a wonderful, personal and gentle style while she is shooting. Her eye for detail could not be better and she ensures nothing is missed. Our wedding photographs are some of the best I have ever seen! They truly look like something out of a professional magazine - she is that good! If I could give Andrea more than 5 starts I would! She is absolutely exceptional and you will love her work for the rest of your happily married life!
