I am a fairly non-traditional individual, so we were looking for someone that could capture a story in her photos versus just a bunch of smiles. Andrea did just that. She created art at every turn and captured the nature of our event. People are still raving over the images. In addition to her amazing eye, Andrea is one of the most genuine, authentic individuals I came across in the "wedding world." She is easy to work with, and to be honest we left it all up to her, knowing that whatever and however she shot the day would be perfect. We were not disappointed and we will be booking her for every other event we have moving forward.
Her thoughtful approach, ability to be flexible when it mattered most, and grounding presence made me feel at ease and confident that everything would go well. Most importantly, her keen eye and impeccable judgement captured authentic images of us—as well as our friends and family—that we will always treasure.
My husband and I searched high and low to find a photographer with a little edge in their photographs, and Andrea fit the bill! On the day of the wedding Andrea was a dream- especially when it came to capturing my entire 100 member family in a giant group photo! A total pro! The final photographs were beautiful, with rich colors and tons of candids! I would definitely recommend Andrea to anyone who wants beautiful photographs that capture all the special moments and emotions of the day!
We knew that there would probably never be another time in our lives that so many people we love would be in one place, so we were very intentional about finding a photographer that could capture the story and feel of our wedding. Andrea did just that and we couldn't be happier with our pictures! I can't stop looking at them. She is incredibly talented and made us, two very awkward people who aren't used to having their pictures taken, feel very comfortable. I highly recommend Andrea.
She was timely, professional, incredibly sweet, and captured beautiful images. I've been to weddings where the band of photographers crowded around everybody and felt like paparazzi, but Andrea was totally inconspicuous. I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially to couples interested in a more naturalistic perspective. I was reminded this weekend again how lucky we were to have Andrea as our photographer and what an amazing balance she struck between getting in the right spots to take the right spots while also being amazingly inconspicuous. That's such a talent, on top of her tremendous photographic abilities.
Calm, organized, and genuinely just a lot of fun to spend time with, Andrea is exactly the kind of person you want to work with on your wedding day. Her photojournalist style is what drew us to Andrea in the first place--we weren't so much concerned with capturing what our centerpieces looked like, but we cared very much about capturing what the day felt like. It's so easy to immediately feel comfortable around Andrea, and she has such incredible timing for catching that perfect shot, that all the happiness of that day just comes shining through in her photographs. If you're lucky enough to find Andrea available for your wedding, don't hesitate--she's the best!
Andrea exemplifies what a photographer should be on your wedding day. She met us on the morning of our wedding day when we were starting to get ready, and she captured our entire day. She fit in so well with our small wedding party and really made the entire day incredibly special. She was able to capture moments we could have never described in words, all while traipsing around New York City! The quality of her work is impressive and beautiful, and the personal touch and detail she put into delivering the photographs to us were amazing! If you're looking for a photographer who can make the best day of your life even better, Andrea is the way to go.
We recently got married in NOLA on a chartered St. Charles streetcar, and we couldn't have done it without Andrea's help. My husband and I live in California, so we planned our whole wedding on our own from a distance. Andrea was exactly what we were looking for. Once we connected with her we were really intrigued by her fun, editorial style of wedding photography. She really went above and beyond for us, and is incredibly sweet. My husband and I consider her a friend now, and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a professional yet relaxed and fun photographer who is great at capturing staged and candid photos.
Andrea captured every significant warm-hearted moment of our wedding so creatively. As a photographer, I like to stay behind the camera. Andrea allowed me to enjoy every memory without even realizing there was a camera capturing the lifetime of memories. She was also very open to my own ideas! Andrea and the photos bring a smile to my face!
Andrea recently photographed my wedding in August, and I could not be more satisfied with the pictures we recently received! She did an amazing job capturing every important moment, and I feel like I'm there reliving the day through her pictures. From getting-ready pictures to the ceremony to the reception, she did a phenomenal job! Everyone who has seen the pictures has had nothing but positive things to say about how beautiful all of the images are. Not only were the pictures beautiful, but Andrea was an absolute joy to work with. She was so kind and helpful throughout the entire day and into the night. I truly cannot recommend her enough!! If you're getting married in New Orleans, do yourself a favor and hire the best wedding photographer in the area, Andrea Mabry!
I had been a bridesmaid in a much larger beach wedding Andrea photographed, and then hired her to photograph my fall wedding in Birmingham, AL. In both situations Andrea is calm and calming in the most heated moments! After watching her work with another bride as we all got ready at the beach and posed for formals and seeing the truly unique results I knew I wanted her for my wedding. Her eye for capturing small details artistically have made my pictures a storybook with amazing formals, candids, and detail shots. Literally her pictures have taken friends and family’s breath away!
The thing I love most about Andrea is her unique, journalistic perspective. Her photographs tell a story. She combines a mastery of her medium with a heightened ability to read and reflect real people. Andrea Mabry is not just a photographer, she is a story teller. I would recommend her work to anyone--you will not be disappointed!
