My husband and I really enjoyed working with Andrea for our engagement and wedding photos, and we were thrilled with both! I saw her photos online when we were searching for a photographer and instantly loved how natural and relaxed they were. The engagement session was wonderful - Andrea put us at ease right away and made the process fun for us. At our wedding, she seemed to be everywhere at once, despite the drizzly weather. I loved how many candid shots there were of our friends and family! The photos were lovely and the process for viewing and ordering prints was really easy. We definitely couldn't have found a better photographer!

Andrea was such a wonderful photographer for our September wedding!! From our windy and rainy engagement photo session to the day of the ceremony, she was nothing less than professional at every stage of our journey, eager to provide us with guidance and advice to ensure we had the best possible experience! Our photos were spectacular, and Andrea managed to deliver them to us quicker than expected and at greater quality than we could have ever hoped. The candids alone from the wedding were beyond amazing; it felt like she was everywhere! We still have friends and family talking about how beautiful our wedding photos came out and it's nearly impossible to choose which ones to hang in our home because they are all so lovely! The customized photo drive that she mailed to us were just the icing on the (wedding) cake, and made us feel like much more than just another wedding. On top of her utter professionalism and amazing photography skills, she was very easy to get in touch with and made communication a breeze. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer, and she is at the top of our list both for recommendations and for any future projects we might have! Thanks so much, Andrea!

Where do I start? When my original wedding photographer started to be come unapproachable I reached out to Andrea and she went up to bat and hit it out of the park with a grand slam! Starting with our engagement pictures I knew she was going to be amazing. So easy to work with. She almost makes you forget that the camera is even there. We took our pictures in November and were able to send out our save the dates for Christmas! When it came to our wedding she was wonderful! From getting pictures of us getting ready to the ceremony to partying on the dance floor she was able get so many wonderful pictures. I loved that she had a second shooter as pictures were most important to me. I highly recommend Andrea for your big day. You will not regret it at all!

My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Andrea for our engagement photos and will be having her photograph our wedding next summer as well. I couldn't recommend Andrea more! She was lighthearted, fun, personable, kind, directive, professional, and an amazing photographer. Her natural style makes for such beautiful and effortless pictures! She took the time to get to know my fiance and I, and really made that shine through in our pictures. Nothing was ever forced or stiff. She truly does make it feel like the camera isn't even there! She is always so quick to respond to emails and is very flexible and accommodating! We're so excited to see the rest of our engagement session and so excited to get to work with her again! I 100% recommend Andrea, she's incredible at what she does!

I was referred to work with Andrea for our wedding by a friend and I am so very thankful to have hired her. She made us feel so comfortable and confident while she was taking our photos and was so easy to work with. Andrea was always professional and prompt with answering my many questions prior to the day of. Also, the photos we have received from Andrea are just stunning. I can't get over how perfect they are. If anyone is out there reading this wondering if you should hire her for a wedding, engagement photos, etc. The answer is YES! She is a dream to work with and her work is absolutely gorgeous.

Choosing Andrea to photograph our wedding day was hands-down one of the BEST wedding planning decisions we made. After coming across her blog, I had quickly fallen in love with her artistic style and ability to capture such raw and authentic moments. I knew we had to have her! Andrea was very responsive and easy to work with. It was a no-brainer booking her for our wedding! We were a little nervous going into our engagement session as neither of us had ever taken professional photos before. Andrea immediately made us feel relaxed and we ended up having a blast with her. At times, it was easy to forget she was even snapping pictures! Fast forward 8 months later to our wedding day at Salem Cross Inn. I had truly enjoyed having Andrea with me while I got ready. She made me feel so calm and relaxed. The photos she took during this time are so special to me. She really captured all of the emotion I was feeling before I walked down the aisle. Hard to explain that feeling, but when I see those pictures it takes me right back. All of the photos taken on our wedding day are truly our favorites. Some have told me that if you don't remember seeing your photographer during your wedding - then that means they did their job! Ha! Andrea managed to capture every special moment and then some without at all feeling intrusive. They really felt like friends at our wedding. Andrea - THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. You are the best. Hope to have you capture more milestones to come in our life! ??

Andrea of Andrea Van Orsouw Photography did an absolutely AMAZING job photographing our wedding back in June! We knew she would do an awesome job capturing our wedding, but we are still stunned at how beautiful all of the pictures came out! Andrea literally captured every moment of our day, and then some! It was so cool scrolling through the pictures reminiscing on things we saw happen during our day and we also got to see so many moments that we missed during all of the craziness! She was literally EVERYWHERE throughout the day and evening. I think I would need to sleep for an entire week after all of the running around and effort she put into our wedding day! I have known Andrea for a long time now and it was so cool to see her go from one of my teenage friends that would take goofy selfies with me after pulling all nighters to a professional wedding photographer! She was a pleasure to work with and was literally willing to try any ideas we had. Andrea was able to make anything we asked look better than we could have ever imagined! We are so glad we chose Andrea Van Orsouw Photography to capture our wedding day and hope that anyone reading this will consider her for any of your professional photography needs! Thank you again!

I contacted Andrea a few months back looking for a photographer for our engagement session. We're having a destination wedding, but wanted pictures where we met and got engaged for our engagement pictures. She was prompt to respond and gave me a few dates to choose from. We settled on a plan, and I have absolutely no regrets about my choice! She got to the site about an hour early and scoped out good spots for us to pose. The session was so incredibly fun. Her style is not to do pictures where you're posing or looking at the camera. She just lets you and your partner do your thing and somehow captures your personality into every photo. Before the session started my fiancé and I were both nervous about feeling awkward or being too PDA-y in public. She put us so at ease and we had the best time! Afterwards I continued communicating with her and she was able to get a few photos done quickly so we could order our save the dates. My only complaint is that I haven't been productive since she sent them to me, because I love them so much that I can't stop looking at them! :) Seriously, they're that good. The lighting is incredible and you can feel the love transcend the photos. I would highly recommend Andrea Van Orsouw Photography to anyone who is looking for a fun, casual session and pictures that truly show how much time and love she has poured into them. She can't be beat! Professional, laid back, and talented, she's your gal!!!

Andrea is AMAZING! She is so fun to work with and I am so happy she was there for my husband and I for our day! As much fun as I had with her while she was taking pictures of my girls and I getting ready, I do not remember seeing her for the entire reception; which means she did her job! Our sneak peaks are already so amazing that I, along with my family, are so anxious to see all the final photos! If you're looking for a photographer, you can stop now! Andrea Van Orsouw Photography is the best choice we could've made and will easily be our family photographer FOR LIFE!

Andrea was amazing to work with! Great communication, very personable and easy to talk to. Every phone call and email was like talking to a friend you've known for years. She was very relaxing for us as a couple who had never attended a wedding prior to planning our own! Her framework for taking family pictures and extensive knowledge of perfect shots and poses makes it easy to stick to your allotted time in cocktail hour for photography, and makes it feel very natural and fun! She stuck out the bitter cold autumn wind with us and we still had a wonderful time taking photos after the ceremony. We highly recommend Andrea for anyone who wants the peace of mind from a professional, flexible and reliable photographer and all around great person. Perhaps our favorite touch was waking up the morning after the wedding to half a dozen teaser photos already released, seeing our own wedding in her breathtaking photography style that we first fell in love with. We can't wait to get the full album!

Please believe me when I say that my husband and I are TOUGH critics. Choosing a photographer was one of our biggest challenges as we hated most of what we were seeing. We got married in NY, so we figured there would be plenty of options! So when we got frustrated with what we were seeing locally, we expanded our search to the Northeast. We found Andrea from a recommendation of a recommendation of a recommendation (etc.) and immediately fell in love with her natural, beautiful imagery. We made a leap of faith based on that alone and our instincts were spot on! Not only are our wedding pictures amazing (which is something I was very concerned about), Andrea was a JOY to work with. The nicest vendor bar none. On our wedding day she put us to ease while also leading the photography with confidence and strength. Please note that we got hit with an unseasonable October NOR'EASTER!! Andrea navigated the weather like the PRO that she is. I can't recommend her high enough.

Finding Andrea was one of the best decisions we made with our wedding planning. I discovered her when another photographer we liked was booked, and I am so happy that fate brought us together! She was kind, organized, helpful, fun, REAL, and so talented. She truly made us feel so beautiful and special, and really cared about our vision for photos and our love for each other. It rained on our wedding day and things got messy, but she was running around in the rain to get all of the best shots. Not only did she capture beautiful photos of us, but she captured amazing photos of so many of our guests, which really helped commemorate the love fest that was our wedding. We received sneak peeks and photos SO fast and have So many beautiful photos to choose from! She is a freaking rockstar!
