Wedding Testimonials

Kind words from our couples

We can easily say that our priority at André Maier Photography is making people and settings look both beautiful and natural. That we care about each of our wedding photography clients and want them to have the best possible pictures. That we always make an effort to go beyond what we have done in the past so all of our photos are unique. That we never stop challenging ourselves to give couples more. That we’re not only talented, but also quirky and fun. But we also know that statements like these are a lot more powerful when they come from the brides and grooms who choose us from among the many wedding photographers in New York and Los Angeles. The testimonials below speak for themselves and say so much more than we ever could.

Meredith & Andrew


“An enormous thank you to you and Greg for making our night! You both were amazing to work with and we had so much fun taking pictures all night. Please give Greg a special thank you for teaching my Dad to lift my veil flawlessly and staying ahead of all potential disasters. It was just amazing to see how much you stayed in the moment and made it seem like our wedding was as much the time of your life as it was ours! That made it very easy to smile for you! I know we didn’t get to all of the group photos, despite your helpful reminders, but I truly did not want to stop talking and dancing. I certainly have no regrets and would not have changed a single thing about the night. We absolutely cannot wait to see the results! In the meantime, please let us know if you need anything more from us.”

“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.”

Sara & Chris / Lighthouse in Chelsea Piers

“Andre 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.”

Valerie & Greg / Tarrytown House

“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!!”

Amanda & Ben / Lighthouse in Chelsea Piers

“I just wanted to tell you that the albums arrived safely and that they are absolutely stunning. We are all beyond thrilled with them. I can’t imagine a more beautiful keepsake of our wedding. You have been so wonderful to work with at every stage in the process. We hope we have more happy occasions to work with you. Thank you so much for everything.”

Laura & Phillip / St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Rainbow Room

“Andre Maier is a wonderful photographer to work with. I had the opportunity to observe him at work at my sister’s wedding in 2003, and was so impressed and awed his work that when I was planning my wedding at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Rainbow Room in 2005 I automatically and immediately booked Andre. I had no interest in any other photographer for my wedding. Andre was professional, unobtrusive and extremely observant throughout the ceremony and reception. He was a pleasure to work with and when we returned from our honeymoon, our proofs were already available for pick-up. The pictures were incredible, and the ability to have them available online was a great way to share our pictures with all our friends and family. Many guests told us that they were impressed by the quality of the work, as well as the variety of shots. Some people thought we had more than one photographer, due to the large number of shots from all over the church and venue. Andre was able to be everywhere at once, and capture so many special moments. I can’t say enought about Andre. If you are planning a wedding, or even any event, and need a photographer, I would highly recommend Andre for your event. Just looking at his photographs is almost like re-living my wedding all over again. His photographs are able to bring forth the same feelings I was feeling at that particular moment in time. He is phenomenal and if you can get him for your event, you should not pass up the opportunity at all.”

David & Tracey

“We have made our first pass through the pictures and are totally over-whelmed. They are just amazing. There are more great pictures than we will ever figure out how to display and we are sending hundreds to friends and family. (Think of it as a direct mail campaign for “Andre Maier”). Really, we could not have asked for more. Thank you so much.”

The New “Mr. & Mrs.”

“My husband and I want to thank you for the splendid job you did in photographing our daughter Miriam’s wedding. Faced with much less than perfect sunlight and an outdoor terrain you had never seen, you nevertheless captured all the special moments and happenings of the day, and without ever being obstrusive. What was most remarkable to us, however, was that you were somehow able to catch the real essence of every person you photographed, even though they were total strangers to you. Thanks to you we now have a perfect human record of this very important day, and we’re very grateful.”
