What customers are saying about Andy Sams Photography

I very rarely give 5 stars for online reviews but Andy Sams Photography really deserves it! They were super responsive via email leading up to the wedding date with any questions I had and they arrived early on my wedding day. Andy and his assistant showed up with very friendly and professional attitudes making Chris and I feel extremely comfortable. My guests kept coming up to me during the reception to tell me how talented my photographer was and that my pictures are going to come out incredible. I think that speaks volume about their talents and quality of work. Also, they were both present during the entire reception but I never really noticed them. They let me enjoy my day while capturing it unnoticed which is exactly what i would want in a photographer. I would 100% hire Andy Sams Photography and recommend them to anyone searching for a photographer.

We loved working with Andy and his assistant Suzanne! Andy was always in touch with us not only about meeting times, but also asked all the right questions to help ensure that our engagement and wedding images looked the way we wanted. They were both easy to work with and it was super easy to be comfortable in front of the camera. Thank you Andy for being so amazing!!!

Andy was awesome and so was Suzanne, his assistant. From the engagement pictures to the wedding. He made us feel very comfortable, he is very personable. At the wedding he got amazing shots and did a great job staying hidden. If I ever had any questions he was quick to respond via email. He was great. I am so happy with the photos. I would definitely recommend him to other brides! Thank you Andy for the amazing pictures!

Andy was amazing to work with. Very professional and has a great eye. With all the chaos of the wedding, it\'s such a blur, it\'s so important to have a great photographer. I am so glad we invested in Andy for our photographs to capture all the special moments. His assistants were great too. Poor girl got stuck shooting all the guys getting ready. She was thrown in the lions den, but she got amazing shots. Andy\'s photo packages are very well priced too. You can get everything you want and still have money for the rest of your wedding.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” ― Karl Lagerfeld Where do I begin? Andy will be the best choice you can make for you and your fiancé –you will not only have breathtaking photos but these will be cherished items – these are the type of photographs that will be passed down to your grand kids children one day. His work is so amazing; his use of natural lighting and imagery is astounding as he is a true born made talent. He not only makes you feel comfortable but he is very perceptive as he can see the complete picture before he even takes it. His use of nature and again natural lighting is so remarkable – he captured the modern essence of our relationship with such care and grace and I am eternally grateful that he took our photos at this special time in our lives. Andy’s talent and passion is not only evident in his work but he has such a genuine kindness to him and great energy that’s so contagious that you cannot help but be happy around him, as if you were not already happy taking pictures with your other half. Andy is very engaging and so amazing he made this process even more special for us and he capture a moment i

My husband and I loved working with Andy. Our pictures turned out beautifully and he got our proofs to us very quickly! We were more than happy with the photos and will look to use him in the future for other other family photography.

If you are looking for the most awesome and coolest photographer in Austin...or anywhere as he travels...then you absolutely should go with Andy. His photos are gorgeous and the quality and style with which he advertises is exactly what you can expect to be delivered to you. From our first meeting with Andy, we were sold. He somehow manages to blend being a total professional and also being super laid back and relaxed, which is something that is very refreshing on the day of the wedding. He is very responsive and reachable and seems to make the whole process just that much easier. I really can\'t say enough about how great Andy (and his assistant Suzanne) was and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Andy shot all of our wedding photography - engagements, bridals and the big day. He was a lot of fun to work with and made my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera. We very much appreciated Andy\'s flexibility, honesty and desire to capture our personalities in our photos. We love all of our photos, and are so glad that we chose Andy Sams photography. Thanks, Andy!

Andy is an all around amazing photographer. He did both our engagement and wedding day photos. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He loves what he does and it shows in his work. He\'s also super easy going and when you are a stressed bride-to-be, it\'s nice to be around someone so calming. Visit his website blog and check out the recent weddings to see for yourself how great his photography is.

There is one word to describe Andy and his work....AWESOME!! I was first introduced to Andy when I went to a bridal show as a maid of honor for my best friend\'s wedding in 2011. His work stood out in my mind so much from his display at the bridal show that after I became engaged I knew I had to have him for my wedding! Andy did both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. He had to fly in from Texas for both occasions and we were so grateful he was able to do so. He returned our emails and phone calls almost immediately and was so easy to work with! Our engagement pictures were taken in Cumberland, MD (Andy\'s hometown). From the instant we met Andy in the parking lot, I knew we were going to have a great time. My husband was kind of nervous about the whole engagement picture session because he has always been one to not like getting his picture taken. Andy made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. We both had a blast and even my husband said he had fun. When we showed our pictures with family, friends, and co-workers, they all went on about how great our pictures were. And many of them didn\'t even recognize the location because of how unique they were!! Our engagement pictures were so wonderful, I couldn\

Andy did both an Engagement Session and Wedding Day pictures for my husband and I, and we couldn\'t have been happier with everything! Andy took every picture we wanted and more without us having to ask. He also suggested poses for us, which we greatly appreciated, and best of all he made the time fun and relaxed. We laughed and had fun through both sessions. There was a thunderstorm the night of our wedding, and Andy successfully wrangled about 30 people between our attendants and family pictures, all while he was standing in the rain. Andy was always quick to respond to my emails or phone calls, and he handled all manners professionally. His prices were more than fair for the quality of work received, and he was very flexible when we had to move up the date of our engagement session. For both engagement and wedding we got the pictures back in half the time we expected, and they\'re absolutely fantastic! We couldn\'t be happier with Andy\'s hard work, kindness, and the amazing end result. He made the process so fun, stress free, and simple, and I would recommend him to anyone!

Andy Sams is a great photographer to have at your wedding! The pictures he took were fantastic. He is also very nice and fun to have at the wedding and tries to help you have a great wedding day, capturing each moment. I would definitely recommend him!!

I would absolutely recommend Andy Sams Photography to anyone and I do! My husband and I are elated with our choice to use Andy as our wedding and engagement photographer and we will use him again in a heartbeat. Andy was skilled, flexible, organized, creative and well priced. His photos turned out to be clear, vibrant and absolutely mesmerizing. I cannot say enough about how pleased we are with Andy’s work. Saying that he is talented is an understatement. Andy takes photography very seriously and his photos are so wonderful that you will want to hang them all on your wall. The most difficult thing for us has been deciding which portrait to frame for our mantle because they are all magnificent. Andy was extremely friendly and easygoing while working with us. His sense of humor and never-ending smile helped to relax us and put us at ease. Andy as well as his partner and their equipment were not at all intrusive on our wedding day. As a matter of fact, we hardly knew that they were around but they took up-close photos and captured the tiniest details with no problem at all. Andy personally edited every photo in our album. He then gave us a CD with all of our photos and the rights to each. With the rights to our al

My husband and I had both our wedding photography and our engagement photography done with Andy in Austin and everything about both occasions was perfect! Andy was very flexible and open to our ideas but could also give great suggestions. He was also really good at reading our personalities and creating shots that were right for us. He was always quick to respond to email, text, phone calls and was proactive about contacting me for helpful reminders or just to check in as the wedding date approached! The photographs we\'ve received are absolutely beautiful and we loved how Andy gives you free reign over your pictures with the picture cd. It makes it so easy to get prints, post pictures, etc. Andy was everything we were looking for in a photographer and we would absolutely use him again!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Andy for our engagement and wedding photography. We\'re extremely pleased with all of our photos and are so glad that we chose Andy Sams Photography. He\'s really great at getting to know you and making you feel comfortable...something that can only come from experience. Andy was always quick to respond any time I contacted him, (email, phone, or text) and was really, really great about answering all of my questions/concerns about the schedule of the wedding day, etc. One of my favorite things about Andy was that even when things got chaotic (and they WILL on your wedding day!), he was completely calm and maintained professionalism while making sure everything went smoothly. The second photo that Andy brought to our wedding was also really awesome...they worked so well together as a team to ensure that every part of our big day was beautifully photographed. To sum it all up, as soon as I emailed the link to our edited photos to my mom and she looked through them all, the very first thing she text me was: \"The pictures are BEAUTIFUL; Andy was worth every penny!\"

Andy Sams is the perfect wedding photographer in every way. I could not be happier with the photographs we got from our engagement shoot and wedding. Everyone who sees them thinks they are some of the best wedding photos they\'ve ever seen! The color in his photos is amazing! From the beginning, Andy was patient with me...a VERY detail-oriented and specific bride-to-be. I had lots of parameters and lots of requests and he accommodated all of them with a smile and relaxed attitude. Andy seemed to genuinely care about us as people, not just clients. He\'s a great guy, and he\'s prices are very reasonable. We interviewed 5 or 6 photographers and Andy was the obvious, hands-down clear choice. The others all paled in comparison. Andy rocks!!

Andy did a wonderful job with our engagement photos, my bridal portraits and our wedding! The pictures are amazing and we are so glad that we chose Andy Sams Photography! Andy is very friendly and has a laid-back personality. He made us feel comfortable when taking our photos. His prices are also very reasonable! His photographs are better than wedding photos I\'ve seen from other photographers that charge almost double the price. I would highly recommend using Andy Sams Photography!

From our very first meeting with Andy we knew he was the perfect photographer for us. He was so friendly and inviting and he made the process so easy. Andy did our engagement, wedding photos and bridal portrait. Andy made our engagement photo session very relaxing, fun and enjoyable, which made it very easy to take pictures despite it being almost 100 degrees outside. Andy was great at giving direction for poses, knowing when and how to capture the moment perfectly. We had so many fantastic photos to use in our wedding. The day of my bridal portraits the venue was under-going some unexpected renovations. Andy handled the situation perfectly and had a plan B on the spot and the photos turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. The day was very relaxed and enjoyable and Andy was awesome at suggesting the best poses. We love our wedding photos and have wanted to included ever single one in our album. Andy captured the day and our personalities so vividly. He was very friendly and gave direction when needed. We had a fairly large wedding party of 16 and he was very friendly and efficient in making sure the pictures we wanted got taken. If our photos were edited, we could never tell. He did such a superb jo

Andy was professional and friendly. Meeting with him to discuss our photography desires was a breeze. He\'s so easy going and seemed to really understand what we were going for. Our garden wedding was rained out and moved the event inside. Andy and his assistant were super flexible and helpful, making sure we still got many quality shots.

by Carly

on May 14, 2013

Andy was amazing. I love photography and it was one of the things that I was most picky about for my wedding. He knew just what to do and made me and my husband(who is very shy and doesn\'t like his picture taken) feel very comfortable. Not only that we had so much fun. Andy did out engagement, my bridal, and out wedding. He was amazing and so much fun, but very professional. He is a true talent considering he has taught himself everything he knows. from experience these are the best kind of photographers. I was very impressed and very proud of my photos. we have since become friends and everyone who has seen my photos has always talked about how amazing they are. I re-comment him to everyone I talk to.

Andy is an amazing photographer. We used him for our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and both came out amazing! Working with Andy was a blast! It was like having a really good friend take our pictures. We never felt like taking the pictures was tedious or was just another thing to do on our wedding day on top of all the other things we had to do that day. Andy made everything as easy as possible and very fun. Andy is also an amazing artist, and it shows in his work. When we received our wedding album that he made for us, every picture he used, whether it was the backgrounds or the main photos, was incredible! As a person Andy is a really great guy, very funny and is a blast to hang out with. If you want a great photographer that will blow you away with his work, choose Andy. We can’t begin to tell you how happy we are that Andy was a part of our wedding experience. You will not be disappointed at all!

I would recommend Andy to anyone who needs a photographer! Neither my husband nor I enjoy being the center of attention, but he made us feel so comfortable on that day that we didn\'t even realize pictures were being taken. I LOVED the photographs even when all the pictures I had imagined were outdoors (but rain caused a change of plans and location.) Andy braved the rain so that I was still able to get a few pictures outside! He also did a great job of capturing the feel of my wedding. My goal was for everyone to have a great time and his photographs show the great time had by all. P.S. The wedding album is also super nice and I recommend it!

by Carly

We loved working with Andy! He did our engagement session, my bridal portraits and our wedding day. He was always fun to work with and had great ideas. We had such a hard time picking which ones we wanted printed and framed because we loved so many of them! Highly recommend him!

Our experience with Andy Sams Photography was just fabulous! We utilized Andy for both my bridal portrait and our wedding, and were thrilled with both the process and final product. Andy is a very talented, thoughtful, responsible, professional and fun person to entrust your special days to - highly recommended!

My husband and I went to several bridal expo\'s during our engagement, and we came across Andy\'s booth at a bridal expo that was being held at The Westin in the Domain. Andy had the such a great display of photos I was immediately attracted to his work. He had his work posted up on display and also several wedding albums with an abundance of photos to look through. I knew right then and there that Andy was who I wanted to use to photograph my wedding. Andy was front and center through the entire process when I explained to him what I would like out of my experience and the kind of photo album I always dreamed of having. We used Andy for both our engagement photos in Downtown Austin and our Wedding Day Photos. Andy was so flexible with my husband and I\'s schedule since I worked nights and my husband worked days. Our first experience working with Andy was our engagement shoot Downtown. Andy made my husband so comfortable and we all know most men do not like to take continuous photos. Andy felt more like a friend than a stranger and made us both feel very at ease throughout the entire photography session. I discussed ideas I had for this shoot and he came up with some original ideas that I now have framed throughout

I would like to start by saying that our experience dealing with Andy Sams Photography, was nothing less than magnificent! The only way I got to even know Andy was thru a mishap ON THE DAY OF OUR WEDDING! We got a phone call about 4 hours before the ceremony that our photographer was in a car accident on the way to our wedding. She was hurt but not severely, but as you can imagine these are the things people \"talk about\" that can happen on your wedding day. I reached out to Andy, expalined our situation to him and to our amazement he said he would be there with in 2-3 hours. When we got to the church, Andy was there already taking pictures with his assistant of the wedding party gathering and getting ready for the event. As our wedding goes thru the night Andy and his assistant were JOHNNY ON THE SPOT! Needless to say that after our wedding, when we recieved our disc from him with the pictures from the event we were delighted to see our wedding thru the lens of a person that up until that point in the church when I introduced myself to him I didn\'t know Andy from Adam! You know the ole saying .....\"God works in mysterious ways\" Sometimes bad things happen to good people and in no way was I happy of our original

My husband and I are both comedic performers so we were looking for a photographer that would be able to capture our unique personalities on our wedding day and Andy was perfect! Andy was fun loving, creative and professional. He took some fun and serious shots of us that look great! My wedding day was pretty stressful but was a breath of fresh air. Andy was cool calm and composed. He was able to wrangle my ridiculously big Catholic family together for pictures and believe me that is a task that is not easy. Andy was fabulous and so was his assistant she got me my first glass of champagne of the night and for that I will be eternally grateful! I would truly recommend Andy Sams Photography for your wedding or event!

Andy took engagement pictures of my husband and me. Of course, my husband was reluctant to take pictures; but Andy made it a fun experience. He is easy to work with and helped us both to relax during the photo session. He also had some great ideas for posing. When he posted the photos online it was hard to decide which ones we wanted. We loved them all, so we decided to display them on our wedding day. Although my husband and I had already contracted with another photographer for our wedding day, we did not get all of the bride and groom shots we wanted. I contacted Andy to see if he would be interested in taking a few more bride and groom shots. He was more than willing to work with us again and had the perfect place in mind for a photo session. Once again the photos were amazing and this time we ordered all of them! We would definitely recommend Andy to any bride and groom in search of an excellent photographer.

My fiance and I just got our engagement photos back 5 days after we shot them with Andy! The fee was very reasonable and we received 81 amazing photos that we are so happy with! During the shoot itself, Andy was very friendly and made you feel like you had been friends for years. The photos are very focused on us as a couple, and you can see in them how we feel for one another. Andy is fantastic, and in the last three days, I have already recommended him to two friends for their upcoming photo opportunities.

by Emma

on May 15, 2013

After Andy took our engagement photos for us, we knew we wanted him at our wedding. He was so creative and has a wonderful personality! Andy was able to capture our entire wedding day in photos, so that by the time we watched our wedding video we felt like we had already watched it because Andy captured all the precious moments on film already. He was extremely professional and was NEVER in the way. He listened to all our suggestions and created some brilliant pictures from his own creative suggestions. Andy also did my bridal pictures, and he is such a pleasure to work with that we called Andy back to take pictures from my pregnancy. I highly recommend using Andy for any occasion, especially your wedding day! Thanks again Andy!

My husband and I used Andy Sams as our wedding photographer and he was wonderful! Not only did he take beautiful photos, but he helped us relax and had a great sense of humor making us laugh and enjoy the moment. Before using him as a wedding photographer, he took engagement photos of us to get to know us and learn our likes and dislikes. Many of those are some of my favorites and two years later friends still comment on what fantastic photos they are--capturing our personalities. My brother-in-law commented that Andy was like spider-man at our wedding in that he was agile and skilled and he would swoop in for the perfect shot, but other than that you didn\'t know he was there because he remained in the shadows. My best friend loved our photos so much from our wedding that he used him for hers.

Having Andy as your photographer is like hanging out with a friend. He makes everyone feel at ease. He did our engagement, bridals, and wedding day. All of the pictures turned out beautiful, and to this day, I still get people commenting on how great the pictures are. I loved how much time he took to answer each email, and he always answered promptly. He was flexible (we had to reschedule my outdoor bridal shoot because of rain) and attentive. He is also knowledgeable and knew what poses we should stand in for the best angles. And when we weren\'t posing? He captured the moment perfectly. On our wedding day, he took beautiful formals of the family as well as fun shots of the reception. I have lasting memories of a wonderful day thanks to him!

I just received all of my edited photos from Andy (in less than a month) and they are gorgeous. Andy\'s style is simpler, with not as many affects as some of the other photographers I looked at but the simplicity was gorgeous and truly captured our wedding\'s beauty. More importantly, he captured some beautiful candid moments- My dad and I jumping up and down when we saw each other, my mom and I getting teary post wedding, my husband looking at me down the aisle,some of my serious dance moves - moments I didn\'t even realize happened until the pictures showed up! He is VERY reasonable and my engagement photos and bridals were equally gorgeous. Above all, Andy is a really fun sweet guy to have with you for every second of the wedding day. Remember you are with this person nonstop for 8 hours and he kept me smiling and loose. He stayed out of our way when we were having emotional moments- I don\'t even remember seeing him at the ceremony. He kept me laughing when I was stressed and adjusted to demanding family members. I would recommend him to anyone!

Andy was great and captured precious moments of our wedding. I picked him because I think his photography was unique. Professionalism was very important to us and Andy surpassed our expectations in professionalism and many other things. i also appreciated the small details of our wedding that he paid attention too because those were some of the most special things to me and he took great pictures of them! And he is super nice!

by Miranda

on May 15, 2013

We chose Andy as our wedding photographer after seeing photos he shot at our friends wedding. Andy was easy to get in touch with and answered ALL the questions I had for him. I could tell, even over email, how much time he gave in writing me back and giving me the in-depth answers I really wanted. I truly appreciated that he made me a priority and quickly responded to my emails. We signed Andy as our wedding photographer and set up a time to meet up several months before our wedding to take engagement pictures. This was a great opportunity to get to know Andy and for him to get to know us. The day of the wedding Andy was so calm and relaxed. His attitude and demeanor made the whole process a breeze. He made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera and worked diligently to get as many pictures in before the wedding ceremony and before it got dark outside! Throughout the reception I honestly only saw Andy maybe once or twice, which is such an amazing feat. He made sure to get great pictures but not disrupt the flow of the wedding ceremony and reception. It’s easy to trust in Andy as a professional photographer and a creative artist. We give Andy our greatest recommendation.
