My wife and I got married on September 19th, 2015 in Laguna Beach and had the privilege of working with Andy Rodriguez as our photographer. From the first communication we had over a year ago, to our engagement shoot, to answering any question or concern we had throughout the process, Andy was extremely professional and prompt in his communication. Because of his experience, he created the perfect wedding day schedule that allowed enough time to capture all of the important moments throughout the day. He kept the whole family and wedding party relaxed but also focused so he could make sure to get the best photos of everyone, but particularly my wife and I. Andy did an amazing job of not only photographing us, but he captured all the beautiful little details of the venue and chapel where the ceremony and reception were held. The photos Andy took of every single detail of our wedding day are incredible and a gift that my wife and I will always treasure. We could not be happier with our decision to work with Andy and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone else who is looking for an amazing photographer and a really fun person to work with.

Just came back from receiving our wedding photos from .... Who in our opinion ... The best photographer out there! We found Andy through a feed on FB and he immediantly stood out from all the other photographers. But to see what’s out there we interviewed a few.
We met andy at his home and was already impressed. He had his own little studio with all these amazing photos set up. He was very easy to talk to but being the first timers we were .. We left to talk amongst our selves about booking him. After seeing the rest of the photographers we set up interviews we believed Andy was it!
And WOW WAS HE....
When we first met him we voiced we didn’t need an engagement session and how we thought it was lame. But Andy reassured is that engagement sessions aren’t only for the bride and groom but for him to get to know us as a couple. I liked that idea. So months later we met him at San Juan Capistrano mission for our hour long session. We just had so much fun! He was like a friend from high school that you don’t see very often but when you get together you just pick up where you left off!
And the pictures were just what we wanted.. Nothing cheesy! No lame posses... It was really art! And we loved them
The entire time of the year of our engagement he was very on top of emails and would call if we weren’t.
The wedding day surpassed all our expectations! He was on time. Always around when you needed him but not too overcrowding! Our pictures are so amazing I can’t stop looking at them. Our parents , friends and family can’t stop saying what am awesome job he did
If we had to give one piece of advice from us as the newlyweds ... To anyone working on a wedding... Spend the money on a good photographer! There is nothing worse than having your magical day recorded badly!
We can’t thank you enough Andy! But maybe this review will help!

Andy’s expertise in photography goes without saying. We found Andy through Facebook and were amazed by his work. Initially, we were skeptical in contacting him, thinking his pricing would be out of our budget. However, we contacted him and are so happy we did! Andy shot our engagement photos in December of 2013. When we received our photos, our expectations were exceeded. His work told a story and the pictures were all beautiful and captured our day wonderfully at the Griffith Park Observatory. Going into the wedding, Andy was very professional, organized, and up front with his expectations of how he wanted to capture our magical moments. He had a timeline that he strictly followed. He worked well with us, our wedding party, videographer, and was able capture amazing shots around our 170+ guests. Andy made our day stress free and our wedding party really enjoyed his enthusiasm and creative poses. He brought out the best in everyone to capture those great shots! We recently met with Andy to preview our wedding photos and once again our expectations were exceeded. Andy had our photos organized from start to finish and provided a video slide show which took us back to re-live that special day! Andy we are sincerely appreciative and happy with your work! Thank you for capturing our wedding and giving us memories that we will share and cherish forever!

It was a joy to work with Andy for our engagement shoot and our wedding. As Antoin & I were also preparing to graduate medical school and move across the country 2 weeks after our wedding day, everything up until the ceremony itself was a hustle, and at times- complete chaos. Andy, however, was incredibly flexible and remained calm yet upbeat in the face of it all! He is experienced, talented, and he was always a great source for advice on anything wedding-related, which was a wonderful & unexpected perk. He was a huge source of support and enthusiasm and we were so lucky that he could fit our crazy schedule into his. Most importantly, the photos are gorgeous- He really captures the emotion of the day

Selecting Andy Rodriguez as your wedding photographer will be one of the best vendor decisions you make for your wedding day. Andy did our engagement session, rehearsal dinner, wedding day and our “trash the dress” shoot. We love his work so much that we have also purchased holiday/special occasion cards through him and we love the lettering and design he has done. Andy is skilled, thorough, creative and friendly - just the kind of person you want by your side throughout your wedding day. He is professional, but fun enough to dress up along with our silly rehearsal dinner theme. He is organized and controlled, but flexible enough to fix our timeline when another vendor dropped the ball. When you select Andy as your wedding photographer, you are getting quality you can trust. He is passionate about his craft and he will treat your special day with respect and care. He even got stung by a bee while we were in a rustic field and went right along with the shoot! If you want a photographer who will go above and beyond to make sure your special day is captured beautifully and professionally, choose Andy!

My husband and I researched and met with several photographers to capture our wedding day. We came across Andy via facebook and decided to meet with him to learn more about his pricing and see more of his work. The things that made Andy stand out were his professionalism, knowledge, and passion for his work. Andy admitted that he limits the amount of weddings that he photographs throughout the year in order to prevent burn out and maximize the quality of his work which in my opinion was admirable and definitely evident in the beautiful photographs that he captures. We couldn’t be more satisfied with our photos both engagement and wedding and we’ve gotten so many compliments on his work! Thank you Andy for all of your hard work and the moments that you captured that we now can look at and remember just how special that day was! You are awesome!

Andy was a true professional and one of the best vendors we dealt with for our wedding. He was always available, quick to respond to emails, and very professional all around. His photos were amazing, and exactly what we wanted. He was very open and flexible to all our ideas and needs. We developed a great relationship with him and he always made us feel comfortable. He has the perfect balance of business savvy to get the job done, and creative / artistic vision to execute on whatever your photography needs may be. Thank you for the beautiful photos that we will treasure forever!!!

The best possible choice we made for our Wedding day started by hiring Andy Rodriguez to do our Engagement/Wedding pictures!!! Everything turned out AMAZING!!! And on top of that, Andy is just so easy to work with, he is so quick to respond anytime you have a question.... and believe me I had a ton of silly questions! My now husband is not used to doing photographs or anything like that so I was super worried before our engagement pictures, Andy is so good at what he does he had my husband looking like a pro at taking pictures. Andy is so focused on getting the best shots of the bride and groom it was great, he was by our side the whole time and yet you couldn’t even tell.... he was like a ninja, there but you didn’t even know it! I had so many people during the wedding come up to me raving about him and how nice he was and how they could just see his attention to detail. I would recommend him to anyone over and over again!! And if I could do my Wedding day all over again...which I’m so glad I don’t have to, lol I would hire him again in a hear beat! We have found ourselves a photographer for all our big moments that we look forward too in the future... babies, family shots whatever it may be! If he will have us!

I was incredibly happy with the work that Andy did. We flew him out to Maui for our wedding which was a bonus because we not only got amazing pictures of the wedding itself, but also the rehearsal dinner and activities leading up to the wedding. He was very aware of what was going on and captured all of the special moments that we were able to later look back upon and relive. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars!

Andy was not only excellent, warm hearted and professional; he was literally the glue that held our wedding day together. Our wedding was in Las Vegas and I was very nervous about everything coming together. Andy made sure our day went smoothly from beginning to end. It really felt like he was a part of our family on that day (my family adored him!). Hiring a Marine Corp veteran (my husband and I served in the Army and Air Force) and fellow Dodger fanatic was a HUGE plus! Thank you again Andy :)

Wow!!! Enough good words could not be written about Andy! From the first time we spoke on the phone to the after wedding conversations he always made us feel so comfortable and excited for marriage! He did an amazing job on both our engagement shoot and in our wedding day. His detail to the surroundings of our venue allowed for pictures that I would never have thought of! He captured our day as it was a story and we could not have asked for any more than that! We would HIGHLY recommend Andy for any event, with him by your side the day will run smooth and perfect!!
