Miriam & Anthony Edwards, York Minster, North Yorkshire  

york_minster_wedding-001Andy’s style of photography really fit the look and feel that we wanted for our Wedding Day: the photos feel like a true representation of us as a couple and not just us at that moment in time. Each photo has really captured the day and they are wonderful to look at months later to transport us back. His blend of informality and reportage really sets his photos apart from other Wedding Photographers.

 

Andy was friendly and professional throughout the entire process and made us both feel at ease, even though we are not naturals in front of the camera! The time he dedicates to the whole process, from explaining the different packages to choosing the leather for the album cover, means that every eventuality is covered and we had total confidence in him through every step. On the actual day it was such a credit to him that you hardly notice he is there, everyone felt so at ease and there are some great photos to reflect this!

 

So many people have commented on the photos and we would recommend Andy to anyone as a Wedding Photographer. The main album and the parent albums received are all beautifully made and laid out and truly reflect Andy’s talent.

 

It was a real pleasure to have Andy as part of our Wedding Day and he has given us memories to treasure forever.

Katharine & James Kasher  

north_yorkshire_wedding-001James and I would like to thank you for being part of our wedding and making it the best day of our lives.
We are so grateful that you were so patient and calm under very difficult circumstances. How many weddings have all those hiccups in one morning?! I can only apologise for the power cut, the last minute change of plans, the dreadful weather when leaving the church and the delays to the schedule.

Thank you for being so professional, polite and focused. You are obviously very talented and experienced in what you do.

I want you to know that I will be highly recommending you to everybody that I can. You made the whole experience very enjoyable, you relaxed us and it was a pleasure to have you in our company.

Katherine & Alex, Victoria Hall, Saltaire  

saltaire_wedding-001Being rather clueless when it comes to photography we didn’t really know where to start when looking for a wedding photographer and feel so lucky to have stumbled across the wonderful Andy Hook.  A good friend of ours who is a keen photographer had spotted his work online and directed us to his amazing website.  We felt really excited at the prospect of having Andy photograph our wedding and he did not disappoint!

Andy was so professional from start to finish but has a lovely easy going manner that made us both feel really comfortable on the day.  When Andy showed us the pictures of our wedding back at his studio we were blown away.  Our photos are stunning – we felt like celebrities but they are so personable at the same time!  It was quite a big wedding with lots going on but Andy (and his sidekick on the day Ben) managed to capture all of our favourite moments beautifully.  They both worked so hard all day from early doors make up, to running up the street backwards in front of our brass band in scorching temperatures, until late in the evening to get some great shots on the dance floor!  

We were so pleased when we heard Andy had won at the MPA awards – so well deserved.  We feel honoured to have had him as our wedding photographer and would wholeheartedly recommend him to other couples looking for that something special.

Tracie & Lynne, Gainsborough Hall, Lincolnshire  

gainsborough_hall_wedding-001We share a hairdresser with Andy and Simon highly recommend Andy to us when we had set a date for our wedding. From the first view of photographs on his website and then meeting him and looking at his work we knew were in the presence of a genius. Like all couples planning a wedding we wanted a beautiful, special and magical day, we had been together for many years but were now able to marry due to landmark changes to the law earlier in 2014.

Getting married in December at 4.00pm in a tudor manor house was always going to be a challenge! Andy rose to the occasion and captured our day perfectly, the photographic narrative he gives you through your photographs means you can relive your day again and again. He was relaxed and engaging with our guests and worked extremely hard to capture the detail and he achieved it with exquisite precision.

Our day was captured beautifully and Andy certainly delivered what he promised, we cannot thank you enough. Our best wishes to you for a continued successful photographic future.

Kindest Regards

Tracie and Lynne

Rachael & Graham Davidson, Sheffield Town Hall, South Yorkshire  

sheffield_wedding-001Andy Hook was fantastic at our wedding,  we had the wedding in our garden and on the day we had thunderstorms all afternoon.  This didn’t stop Andy getting excellent photos.

Everyone that attended the day also complemented how good the photographer was, didn’t get in anyone’s way and stayed from first thing in the morning until late at night.

The photography is one of the main parts of a wedding as this is what people use to remember the day so you need to make sure it is right.  Also as a couple we are quite into photography so wanted to make sure we got someone we could really rely on and we were certainly not disappointed. Everything was perfect.

Thank you.

Graham and Rachael Davidson

Louise & John McArthur, The Secret Garden, Gringley on the Hill  

Dear Andy,secret_garden_wedding3-001

Thank You so much for the amazing photographs that documented our day!

I love the way your photo’s told a very accurate story of the characters and special moments that made the day so special.

You really are an amazing photographer!

Hope to work with you again in the future.

Warmest regards

Louise & John

Caroline & Simon Falconer, Bolton Abbey, North Yorkshire  

bolton_abbey_wedding-001“Following a recommendation from a close friend and after viewing his awesome online gallery we chose Andy as our photographer for our wedding in June this year.

From the moment we met Andy we knew we’d made the right decision. Not only were the engagement photos he took of us fantastic he was also an incredibly friendly and personable guy, something which was particularly important to us when planning our special day.

 

On the big day Andy was enthusiastic, full of energy and completely on the ball. His creative ideas were second to none and personable approach made both of us feel very relaxed, meaning the photos appeared more natural than we ever thought possible.

 

We’ve recently received our final edited shots and are truly amazed at the results. Every shot Andy captured is a true gem and is helping us to relive what was without doubt the best day of our lives. The comments we continue to receive from friends and family help to confirm our belief that we could not have found a better person to do the job than Andy.

 

On a personal level we really felt like Andy was an important part of our day rather than just our photographer. He was friendly, incredibly positive and an absolute delight to have around. We just wish we could do it all again!

 

For anyone looking for a top class photographer Andy is without doubt the right man and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

 

A big thank you for everything Andy and we truly hope to stay in touch.”

Thomas & Amy Weaver, The Mansion, Leeds  

thomas_amy-001After meeting Andy at a wedding fair and seeing the work that he had produced at other weddings we were very excited at the thought of Andy been our wedding photographer. From the moment the first camera clicked at our engagement shoot to the last on our wedding day we were made to feel relaxed and at ease and barely new he was there and blended in as one of our guests. Andy has a great eye for detail and this is clearly shown in all the work that he produces. Andy works tirelessly from start to finish getting the perfect results you want, so that the memories you want capturing are there to look over time and time again. On behalf of me and my lovely wife we’d like to say a huge thank you for an amazing experience in front of the camera, the memories you captured for us and the album you produced which we look back on so often to relive some of the amazing photos you captured on our special day.
Thank you so much Andy and we wish you all the success in the future.

I wouldn’t hesitate at all in recommending Andy. His photographs are stunning, creative and professional but not only that, Andy is also kirkstall_abbey_wedding_photography-001a pleasure to have around on your wedding day.

He makes you feel completely at ease and captures very special moments without you having to miss your own party.

A very special photographer.

We would like to say a big Thank You!! We spent a long time picking the right photographer for us and were more than happy with the results!

Wanda & Paul Dawson, Ye Olde Bell Hotel, Nottinghamshire  

We began the task of planning our wedding at the beginning of 2012. With so many decisions to make and always worrying if we had chosen the right people or companies to look after certain aspects of our big day.

ye_olde_bell_wedding-001

Choosing a photographer was becoming stressful as we saw so many at functions but nobody seemed to meet our expectations.

We were recommended to look in to a photographer called Andy Hook. We initially viewed his website which on face value was very professional and impressive.

We contacted Andy and arranged a meeting. We met Andy at his private studio, we found Andy both friendly, interested in us as a couple and the most professional out of all the photographers we had met. His studio was state of the art and during the entire initial meeting Andy did not leave any question or request unanswered. The decision was instant and we knew we wanted Andy to photograph and be part of our wedding.

Not only was he accommodating and professional in regards our requests he was also very open regards creating a package that met our financial limitations.

We really felt we had found the best in the business. Leading up to the wedding Andy was in constant contact and produced some amazing pre wedding engagement photographs. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his profession really presented itself during this shoot and it reinforced we had chosen the best man for the job.

 

The day of the wedding Andy was open to any requests and made himself available to be where we wanted him at a moment’s notice. He was interactive with all guests and spent a good 12 hours taking photographs during the day. The style was down to our choices with a mix of casual and formal shots. We could not be more happy with the result of our pictures.

Andy made us feel relaxed and we felt like he was part of the wedding to the point we invited him and his wife to join us later in the evening.

 

Post wedding we visited Andy at his studio where Andy still gave us the time and his professional approach to his job despite us having paid him and the wedding complete. We viewed our photographs in a relaxed environment and was overwhelmed with the attention to detail and selection Andy had presented to us. We really could not be more happy with the result of our pictures both family and friends have commented they are the best they have ever seen in regards quality and how the day has been documented.

I would whole heartedly recommend anyone to use Andy for their wedding or any other shoot that requires a professional photographer.

Kate & Andrew Dyson, West Retford Hotel, Nottinghamshire  

Hi Andy,

Thank you so much for our photo’s, we absolutely love them! It was a real pleasure to work with you throughout the whole process. We valued your advice and expertise at every point.

Our photo’s are so natural and real, just what we wanted. It helps us to remember the day exactly as it happened.

We wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending you to anyone else, as you put us at our ease and made me feel comfortable with your friendly professionalism. We almost forgot you were there on the day as you were so discreet!

Best wishes for the future.

Becky & James, Shottle Hall, Derbyshire  

We are so delighted with the images from our wedding. The perfect mementoes from our perfect snowy day.

Being generally very uncomfortable in front of a camera we were keen to find a photographer who would capture the atmosphere and emotion of the day without us having to spend hours posing rather than mingling with our guests, and that is exactly what we got.

We barely remember seeing Andy during the day and yet we have over 300 beautiful images perfectly capturing to day and capturing us all in a more than flattering light!

A number of our friends have commented that our wedding pictures are ‘more like art, than photos’ and everyone wants prints!

It means so much to us to have so many pictures that we can hang throughout our home and take pleasure from in the years to come. Thanks for everything Andy.

Rachel & Jim Sneddon  

We spent a long time looking for the right photographer; After all the pictures from your wedding last a lifetime!  Andy is an obviously a very accomplished wedding photographer, and after looking at the website I was convinced he would be perfect to shoot our outdoor wedding. I loved the natural shots, with a fine art element which made them unique compared to other photographers I had met.

 

Andy works hard to get the perfect picture, including letting us kneel down on his jumper in the mud on our engagement shoot!  Always in pursuit of a great photo, I don’t think I saw Andy sit down on our wedding day, and it was clear how much work had gone in post production.

Thanks again, Rachel and Jim

Heather & Jamie Douglass  

“Thank you for bringing your artistic flair to our wedding. You have captured the mood of the day perfectly.  The atmosphere, passion, romance and fun you produced in our superb photographs allowed us to relive our wonderful day. We were amazed how you seemed to be everywhere, covering our every request and more, yet completely unobtrusive. I would have no reservations in recommending your unique skills and your friendly, individual and professional service.  From the engagement shoot on a breezy day in Castleton to the evening of our wedding, you added your magic to our memories. Outstanding! Thank you!”

Francesca & Wayne Hutton  

What a legend! Our photographs are absolutely stunning – we can’t stop looking at them thinking…”Is that us”? Andy put us and our ‘Chandler Bing’ smiles at ease as soon as we met him and was a true professional before, during and after our wedding. Our day has been captured perfectly – our only problem now is finding enough wall space to hang our beautiful photographs on! Thanks for everything Andy. Francesca and Wayne Hutton.

Natalie & Chris Wright  

We can’t recommend Andy enough! He was brilliant from start to finish. I came across him at a wedding fair after seeing a wonderful shot of a couple I used to go to school with, so instantly felt that connection. He was so friendly and the quality of his photographs and albums shone through. One of the main reasons we went with him was because his shots and style of photography weren’t run of the mill and we didn’t want the normal posed cheesy shots. It was such a good idea having an engagement shoot and it put myself and Chris at ease in front of the camera and also allowed us to get to know Andy a bit more. On the actual day Andy was with us right from the word go and stayed until after the first dance but he blended in so well with many people looking at the photos afterwards saying they never realised where he was taking them from! The church where we got married was very strict about where he could go but he managed to get some wonderful shots of the service and throughout the whole day. We were thrilled with the final result as were all our friends and family and will treasure the pictures for years to come.

Many thanks again Andy

All the best,

Natalie & Chris

Owen & Elspeth McGann  

sheffield_wedding_photography-001We cannot recommend Andy highly enough, it was excellent having Andy there as our photographer for our wedding day.  We were really pleased with our photos from the day, which were exactly what we had hoped to get.  We were especially happy with the way that Andy managed to capture our guests in a natural way, it truly caught the genuine emotions of the day – and the character of some of our younger guests.  Throughout most of the day we didn’t notice Andy taking his photos at all, but when it came to doing the posed photos Andy was cheerful and upbeat – even when he was being rained on!  The photo albums and thank-you cards which Andy produced were of a very high standard, and have received compliments from many of our friends and family.  Andy’s photos captured our wedding day wonderfully and we will no doubt enjoy looking at them for many years.  Thank-you Andy!

Adam & Claire Sayer  

 

Just to say a huge thanks for your efforts in capturing our wedding day in Italy. Your skill, eye for detail, creativity and hard work meant we had a fantastic album to remember our wedding day by. It was a pleasure to have you there and we would thoroughly recommend you to any of our friends in the future. Thanks again Adam & Claire.

Laura & Rufus Southwood  

“One word describes Andy Hook… amazing. Holding our wedding in a remote villa in Thailand we wanted to make sure the memories of our special day were captured perfectly. Andy worked tirelessly to make sure every shot was indeed perfect. He arrived even before the wedding planner to make sure he didn’t miss a thing. His professionalism was outstanding, making sure he did not to miss a moment or person that was important to both Rufus and I. His suggestions of running order to make sure we made the best use of the light as well as quirky and creative shots were excellent. Attention to detail is certainly something Andy has heaps of.

 

“Post event we received all the photos in every kind of resolution we would need, all packaged in a beautiful bundle and CD. I would highly recommend you go for the leather bound album. Friends kindly bought this for us as a surprise wedding present and it is so beautifully designed that we proudly show it off on our coffee table. Thank you Andy for keeping our wedding day alive.”

Francesca & Carl Easson  

“My wedding album is stunning many people have commented that it is the nicest album they’ve seen. On the day andy managed to capture the day from morning until night and provided me with a very relaxed style of photography which is exactly what i wanted.”

Andy was simply wonderful to work with and we could not have asked anything else from him. Every ”i” was dotted and ”t” was crossed. We decided to go with Andy after looking at other photographers as we loved the way in which he managed to captured the spirit of the day, capturing people enjoying the moment and celebrating the occasion rather than posing stiffly for awkward shots.

 

The photos are absolutely brilliant and totally tell the story of our wedding from start to end. Every moment was captured in so much detail looking at the album takes us back to the day as if it was yesterday. Priceless moments are with us forever. Thank you Andy.

 

Jenny & Dan Whincup  

Andy captured so many special moments that we’ll treasure forever. Our pictures are perfect and we’ve had so many compliments from friends and family. Professional and friendly we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our big day. Cheers Andy!

Yvonne & James Parkes  

To Andy, Just a little note to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day so wonderful. We had such a fantastic time and we were so pleased with the photos that you captured for us.

Joanna & Christopher Lowe  

Hi Andy,

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for being our wedding photographer in Sorrento.
It has been a pleasure. Your professional but friendly approach made us feel we were in expert hands from the very beginning and you quickly made all our guests feel at ease on the wedding day.

The images of our wedding are outstanding in a very natural style and truly reflective of the day. We now have a beautiful album capturing intimate moments of our wedding day we will always treasure.

Thanks again.

Kathryn & Shaun Morrison  

We booked Andy after seeing his stunning pictures on his website – it was exactly the style we were looking for – artistic pictures in a relaxed, reportage style. Our first meeting confirmed he was the photographer for us. Andy goes above and beyond any other photographer we had met as he was prepared to stay with us throughout the whole wedding & evening do (most photographers will leave after the speeches, 1st dance etc). On the day Andy blended in well, and was lovely to have around. Many guests commented how friendly he was.

I am still amazed when I look at the pictures – they are better than I ever imagined they could be and i thought it was a lovely touch that Andy came back through to see us to take us through what he had taken.

I can’t recommend Andy enough – just looking at his pictures you can see how brilliant a photographer he is, but he is a really nice guy as well who was a pleasure to have around on our big day!

Lorraine & Marc Day  

Andy’s work and photography talent is incredible, we had a winter wedding and he captured every essence and magic of the day. He is very conscientious and it was an honour to have him take our wedding photographs for us. Thank you so much.

Claire & Jordan Simpson  

We would like to say a huge Thank-You for the utmost professionalism you showed throughout our wedding celebrations in Seville, Spain.

From your ability to respect our priest’s requirements for you to be ‘invisible’ at Iglesia de Santa Cruz Church, liaising with the owner of the venue, Casa de Carmona, through to understanding our own personal requests to deliver amazing, high quality photographs. You captured amazing memories in a truly magnificent wedding album that we will treasure forever & our parents were thrilled when we surprised them with their own miniature copies of the album.

– 1st class service, thank you!

Rebecca & Simon Clare  

 

 

 

Cheers Andy, you are an undeniable legend. They are fantastic!

David & Jane Wingfield  

Everybody tells you to cherish every moment of your wedding day because it is gone in a flash … and it is … unless you have your photos to treasure.

We searched high and low for photographers and finally decided on Andy Hook due to his modern approach to photography. Andy really helped in advising us on new approaches in photography to make our album up to date with a real contemporary feel whilst maintaining what we wanted.

On the day, Andy made us both feel relaxed and we enjoyed getting our photographs taken. He took a great range of pictures and we had such a great choice for our album. He was unobtrusive, extremely professional and took a lot of un-posed photos during our day which we were not expecting; these were so natural and beautiful that we chose most of them for our album.

We would recommend Andy Hook to any couple that want the best possible wedding pictures to treasure forever. We received a first class service from start to finish and would recommend him without hesitation to any couple.
