The best day of your life — your wedding day — will play out in a delirious blur of happy tears and Champagne toasts, congratulatory embraces and heels-off dancing. Love-drunk, you’ll be too busy reveling in the moment to stop and appreciate the tiny details of this day you worked so hard, for so long, to create. That’s where André Maier Photography comes in… With you every step of the way — from morning makeup application until the final sendoff — our aim is to capture the magic of your wedding, exactly as it happened. Beautifully crafted portraits that don’t have to take long to make and journalistic coverage of every moment, emotion and memory. Our role as photographers is to document the complete story with stealth, spontaneity and creativity, for a photo collection that preserves the elation and emotion of your big day.
Covid-19. These are difficult days and many of our clients are wondering if or when they should plan or even think about their wedding. Now more than ever, we see how important it is to be around our close friends and family. I think many of us realize the meaning in deep connections and the bond of love and commitment in marriage that may be more important than the wedding day itself.
I am trying to work with everybody as we are all living in a state of uncertainty. We can put your date on a soft hold, and discuss retainer and payment options that will work for your current situation. Given that we don’t know when we can even gather safely again, I have adjusted our cancellation/postponement policies so that if you do need to postpone, there will be no fees or penalties.
Since all weddings between March and August have now been pushed into the Fall and 2021, and we may be holding 2 years worth of weddings in 2021, dates may become harder to find. Please reach out soon so that we can hold dates and discuss options.
André’s co-photographers have each been handpicked because their photography styles, personalities, and philosophies closely mirror his own. As wedding photographers, they are as calm and unobtrusive as they are skilled and experienced. Each has trained and shot alongside André for years. When André himself is unavailable, couples can access the same relaxed, unscripted, and beautiful wedding photography by hiring one of the studio photographers. Couples always know which wedding photographer they will be working with in advance, and André edits and retouches every photo and handles the creation of every wedding album.
“Planning our wedding was as painful as purchasing an apartment in NYC. The most rewarding outcome (that required the least amount of effort) was working with Andre. He completely captured the event without being intrusive. The wedding party and guests all looked natural and spontaneous–no cliche, staged shots. He immediately gave us high resolution files at no additional cost. We are so proud of Andre’s work.” — Daryl & Hootan
“André was amazing to work with from the moment we met him. Our initial consultation made us sure that he was the right photographer for us. His photojournalistic method was exactly what we were looking for. At our wedding he couldn’t have been more perfect. We didn’t even know he was there — the mark of a brilliant photographer. And then when we got our photos (only 3 weeks later!!!!) we were thrilled. They truly told the story of our wedding day. We would recommend him to anyone.” —Sara & Chris
“Andre was amazing throughout the whole process! When we met with him before our wedding he impressed us with his laid back, relaxed attitude, his focus on candid shots and of course the quality of his pictures blew us away! We knew right away we wanted him to shoot our wedding. When our wedding day arrived, Andre was very inconspicuous — I actually only noticed him once throughout the whole day (except for our posed family shots) yet he captured every single moment of our special day! When we got home from our honeymoon our prints were on my email already- and they brought tears to my eyes! Needless to say I would highly recommend Andre if you are looking for amazing photos for any special occasion!!” — Valerie & Greg
