Andy Davison - Norfolk Wedding Photographer

“Andy has found his true vocation in photography. He captured the most special day of our lives with style, professionalism and compassion. We barely noticed his presence all day but have been presented with a stunning collection of images which tell the story of our day from start to finish. He exceeded expectations and we are eternally grateful for all the hard work he put in for us, including kneeling in a freezing cold wet field to capture ’that shot’. Once more, thank you Andy.”

“Andy was so professional and captured the day exactly the way we wanted. He was charming and helpful, funny, unobtrusive with unfailing attention-to-detail. the photos are amazing, we have a great shot of practically every guest and the best possible photos of us. Many of our guests raved about him. Everything from start to finish was exceptional. I cannot fault anything he did, he was just fantastic. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

“Andy took on our low key candlelit Christmas wedding after other more experienced photographers had turned down capturing our day due to the challenge of candlelight and now we couldn’t be happier that they did. On meeting Andy we knew he was the perfect person to capture one of the most important days of our lives together and we weren’t left disappointed, we have spent many evenings since reliving our day through our loved photos. An extremely talented photographer and a true gent.”

“We have never thought of ourselves as a particularly photogenic couple but Andy’s photos are absolutely stunning – he captured every aspect of our wedding day perfectly. At every point he listened to what we wanted while also guiding us forward and helping us think through what we wanted. Andy really went above and beyond, arriving first the thing in the morning and leaving very last thing at night.”

“Andy was great from the first contact. He fully took on board exactly what we wanted; plenty of natural shots showing people enjoying themselves. Our photos are wonderful and several guests commented on his professionalism and friendliness throughout the day. He worked so hard all day (and night!), stayed extra time, and guided us without imposing. His website/blog is excellent, offering sneak peaks whilst you are waiting for the final edits! I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

Having Andy as our photographer was one of my favourite things about our wedding and is the supplier we have had most feedback from our guests about. He was great throughout, great on our engagement shoot and fantastic on the day. He was so enthusiastic and friendly, he fitted in during the bridal preparations and even ran around getting me a drink at one point! The photos are lovely, they capture all aspects of the day in a creative style…. there isn’t enough room here to do him justice!”

Andy is not only a talented, outstanding photographer, but a genuinely nice person. We were delighted to have him capture our special day. He is friendly, professional and calm ensuring that photographs were taken in a relaxed manner so that both guests and bridal party did not realise his presence. The photographs are both natural and artistic. The pictures Andy has taken will provide us with great happiness for many years to come.”

“From minute one we knew Andy was the right photographer for us. His flexibility, exceptional past work and demeanour set him apart from the other photographers we had looked at. On the day he was a true professional and a pleasure to have around, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Reflecting on our wedding day, my wife and I felt choosing Andy as our photographer was hands-down the BEST decision we made for our wedding, further confirmed by the abundance of complements on our photos.”

“Andy really captured our day perfectly, he was flexible to our needs.  As a bride I was nervous about being photographed all day but it wasn’t like that at all, I felt comfortable and not self conscious at all. The photos are of great quality and when we look at them we revisit the wedding again, they capture our day and the atmosphere.”

I know it seems a little generous to give straight 10’s but there really was no other choice of score. Andy as a photographer is outstanding with creative and original ideas and the ability and knowledge to execute them better than you could imagine. I knew Andy was going to be good but I didn’t realise quite how good! Not only was he a wonderful photographer but he was somebody I enjoyed having at my wedding and the guests loved him too. He seamlessly fitted in to the day. He was perfect

“From the moment we made contact with Andy Davison I knew we were in safe hands. On the wedding day itself I have to admit neither of us were particularly looking forward to having our photos taken however it ended up one of our favourite parts of the whole day & we absolutely loved spending time with such a creative, fun & talented photographer. We are both absolutely made up with the images he has captured of our special day and I know anybody booking Andy in the future will feel the same!”

“We feel very lucky to have bagged Andy for our wedding. Although new to the industry, his level of professionalism was outstanding. Not only did he take great photo’s of our wedding, his level of organisation and friendliness on the day, dealing with us, our family and our friends, especially after we had all started drinking and partying was unfaltering. He stayed much later than we had expected and provided us with a phenomenal amount of edited shots.”

“From the first meeting we had with Andy I was certain he was perfect to capture our special day. He has such a calm nature and completely understood my vision for my wedding day, he is modern and had some really different and unique ideas. On the big day, he photographed every single special moment without me even knowing he was there. The photos were beautiful, family & friends have said it’s the best they have ever seen, each photo told a story and each photo so original, just outstanding.”

“Andy was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout. He completely understood what style we were after and made sure that we got the photos we were after. On the day he also very subtle in getting the right shots without making any of our guest feel uncomfortable. Overall I would have absolutely not hesitation in recommending him to anyone else.”

Andy was fantastic to work with, such a lovely guy. He was super organised which made the entire day run smoothly and captured our day perfectly. His creativity meant we have some truly brilliant photos to cherish, I can’t recommend him enough.”

Andy took all the stress out of our day. From the initial consultation right through to the day itself and delivery of photos everything was made as simple and straightforward as possible. Andy was extremely accommodating and exceeded our expectations in every way with his professionalism, lovely manner and fantastic photos. He very much put us both at ease and managed to get natural photos of our day – ones that truly reflect our personalities. Andy was more than a photographer, he was a friend.

“Andy was so attentive and captured all the little things most people wouldn’t notice. He was organised, but not overbearing, and we had a lot of guests positively comment on how he fitted in perfectly with the day. He is incredibly passionate about what he does and wants to make sure he captures the day perfectly. He’d thought of the most unusual of shots and set up camp around the whole grounds so we really have good coverage of the entire venue. Would definitely recommend him.

“Andy was discreet, quick to respond to requests and went to great effort to get some brilliant candids as the grass stains on his trousers went to show! He was calm when we were freaking out assembling people for the formal shots and throughout the day he knew all the right details to get on camera, capturing every emotion and moment with utter perfection; producing mesmerising, stunning and moving images in a current style. His ‘intimates’ showed vision and he stayed far later than he had to.”

We could not have asked for anything more or better. From our first meeting we knew we had found our perfect photographer. He went above and beyond expectations. So many of our guests commented on how nice and clearly talented he was. We are truly thrilled with our photos and would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Our wedding photos capture our wedding day wonderfully but in a style not available from your ’average’ photographer.

Thanks to Andy, we have the most amazing array of beautiful and unique images to remember our wedding day by. I genuinely do not believe anyone could have captured the day as well. He made an effort to understand us as people and did a thorough recce of the venue and surrounding locations before the day, so our photography time was kept to a minimum. He also somehow made us comfortable with being shot in some very public locations, no easy task with two people who do not enjoy being photographed.”

“We had a small wedding, and only had a small time window for photographs. We asked Andy to take some informal photos of us with friends and family and he was quick, efficient and very friendly and professional. He only took pictures for around half an hour – but we cannot believe how many lovely relaxed shots he managed. Many of our friends did not realise we had a photographer present, as he fitted in really unobtrusively, and was very relaxed.”

“Andy is a real perfectionist but without affecting the flow of your very special day. Andy made us a couple who hated having our pictures taken at total ease and we ended up enjoying every moment. Andy has the ability to create breath-taking shots and capture every aspect of your wedding. Andy is a real joy to work with and his professional approach is fantastic. Our wedding album has left us with fabulous creative pictures which we will treasure forever.”

WHY DID YOU BOOK ANDY DAVISON?

“From Andy’s website, I loved the light and tone of his photos and the relaxed, reportage style, on contacting him, he was prompt and organised and his fee was great value for money We had a test shoot 3 months before the wedding and that’s when I knew we’d made the right choice, I have never been that relaxed having my photo taken and neither has my husband. it was just a fun afternoon and made something I was dreading about my day into something we could both be calm and excited about. it also gave us more photos to cherish and made me so relaxed to have him there on the day. he was just the perfect mix of professionalism and fun and I love every photo we have.”

“Andy came recommended to us by another photographer. Meeting Andy in person sealed the deal; within minutes I felt like I had known him for years, and felt completely comfortable in his presence and in trusting him the responsibility of capturing our wedding day.”

Being a creative myself (Graphic designer that has also studied photography) the photography at my wedding was very important and I had a particular style in mind. After scouring for months for the perfect photographer I got a recommendation to check out Andy and I did. It was one of the best decisions we made.”

A genuinely lovely, friendly and relaxed photographer, who made us feel at ease from the moment we met him, with an eye for a beautiful photograph.”

“We contacted another photographer and he didn’t have our date free, he recommended Andy and said that he was amazing and he was using him when he got married, so I knew Andy would be great. You would never think Andy was only just starting out. So professional, he even went to our venue before the big day:). I have no hesitation on recommending Andy and friends have asked for his details just from looking at my wedding photo’s.”

“Andy was the only photographer we met who was happy to fit with our time constraints and budget. He also seemed very relaxed and happy to work with our plans.”

We were recommended Andy by another photographer and I’m so glad he did.”

“Andy was professional, easy to talk to and made us feel extremely welcome from the moment we met him. He was sensitive to our same-sex wedding requirements and understood our concerns in terms of photographs in public places. His photographs on his website and blog were outstanding and the feel we were looking for – relaxed with a bit of formality but capturing some great emotion.”

“He had been recommended by a local photographer, and seemed to understand what we were looking for during our initial consultation. He was very supportive as we discussed plans for our wedding and we felt we could have confidence in him. We’d also looked online at his work to date and liked his style of photos. Price was very competitive and Andy kept his promises, getting back to us quickly, as and when necessary. His warm and friendly manner made us both warm to him and look forward to having him record our special day.”

“The photos on his website looked amazing and showed a real eye for the perfect shot particularly his ’bride and groom intimates’ and ’candid shots’. His warm and relaxed persona as well as his professional, confident, honest and knowledgeable approach really won us over on meeting him. Furthermore, he showed his generosity in taking some photos of us without us even asking and giving them to us for free before we had even booked him! We went away from that first meeting with him knowing that he was a cut above the rest.”

“We were impressed with the website, the prices and the fact that Andy is so good at communicating with his clients. The wedding day wouldn’t have been the same without his relaxed style making us feel at ease, and we are so grateful to have the beautiful lasting memories. We were lucky to find him!

“We booked Andy as he had already done work for my brother in law and we were extremely impressed by his photos and approach to working.”

“His photographs immediately grabbed us as being beautiful, but unique, in that they capture moments that other photographers don’t seem to capture. On meeting Andy, it was instantly clear that he was the man for the job. He’s friendly, honest and uncontrollably passionate about what he does.

“Recommendation, good price and Andy’s friendly welcoming attitude that made us feel relaxed. He had a clean style, composed shots well. He was kind, welcoming and made us feel at ease straight away.

“Not only was Andy exceptionally good value for money, but he had an incredibly impressive repertoire which made him an obvious choice for us. Upon meeting him at his home we knew from his flexibility and demeanour that he was perfect for us. Andy’s style was unique in comparison to the other photographers we researched, being far more casual and candid than elsewhere, which really drew us to him.”

“We booked Andy after I had been quite picky about choosing a photographer. We were recommended him by another photographer who was fully booked and straight away the photos he had on his website matched the sort of photos I love. My mum got in touch with him as I was at another wedding that day and he responded straight away and they arranged a meeting the next day on a Sunday which was really useful as we live outside of Norfolk. He was very friendly from the outset and was the sort of person you felt at ease with straight away. He was new to the industry so the price we booked him at was very good but I still trusted him to do a good job from the photos I had seen. He continued to post photos on his website and Facebook throughout the year until our wedding so we could follow his ’development’. The main reason we booked was definitely because of his photos but actually his personality, enthusiasm and professionalism was just as appreciated we realise now.”

“Loved the images we saw on his website and once we had been for a meeting with him knew he would ensure that we would have the wedding photographs that we wanted.”

We were recommended Andy by another photographer and I’m so glad he did.”

“Saw photos he had taken of the reception venue on Twitter and fell in love with his distinctive style. Even then, the photos we received far exceeded our expectations.”

“He was clearly an up and coming wedding photographer who was offering incredibly good value for money and came highly recommended and looked like he was exactly the sort of photographer we were after.”
