OUR PHOTOGRAPHERS

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. With any one of our photographers, couples can access the same relaxed, unscripted, and beautiful wedding photography. 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. You can see each of our portfolios below:

TESTIMONIALS

“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

don`t forget the groom! This is one of may reasons to consider having a 2nd photographer, we not only get different angles and creative sensibilities for all the moments, but also photos of the groom getting ready and any other occasions when events happen simultaneously in different locations. This was shot by my amazing princial photographer Theo. ⁠

First look at the Lighthouse. An intimate, private moment for the couple to see each other and have some time along before the group shots begin. One of my favorite moments of the day. @thepiersixtycollection⁠

It`s always fun to see my photos in the NY Times Vows section. This was a particularly fun and beautiful wedding. Pam and Steve got married when they were fairly young, divorced and married each other again this year at Le Bernardin Restaurant in NYC @lebernardinny. ⁠

It was joyful, fun, moving. ⁠

Family photo #42. Poker Players. For just about 25 years, we have taken a conceptual photo of my family. Every 6 months for the first 18 years and once a year since. It`s become a great story of our family and even though none of the images are particularly representative of us on their own, the series is becoming a record of our kids and all of us together. If you haven`t seen them, all 42 are in the "my family" section on my website. ⁠
