Katie & Oliver

Andrew Labett was our wedding photographer in April 2009. Andrew did an amazing job before, during and after the wedding.

In the weeks leading up to our wedding Andrew visited us on several occasions to go through with us as to what we specifically wanted in our photos and gave great guidance and examples to show us different styles and his approach to wedding photography.

On the wedding weekend Andrew had already looked at the venue and surrounding areas and had ideas as to where the best places for photos to be taken was which was very helpful and saved a lot of time on the day. Andrew was very patient in fitting around our plans for the day and made himself available all day and ended up doing a lot of extra work for us, all the time with a smile on his face. From the previous visits and communication with Andrew it ensured we all knew how the ceremony would go and enabled Andrew to get placed to take great photos. Andrew’s general organisation and manner was very positive which was relaxing and ensured no-one had to worry about organising everyone for photos.

After the wedding Andrew was very professional in keeping in touch with us and letting us know how the photos were coming along. Once all the photos were finished Andrew came around and went through them all which was great. The photos were absolutely amazing, we both had no idea they could capture the day so clearly with such clarity. We have had numerous compliments and how amazing and uniquely brilliant the photos themselves are. The album Andrew put together also catches people’s eye, and everyone comments they have never seen one like it and that it is beautiful.

We would both highly recommend Andrew for your wedding. His professionalism, relaxing manner and end result made sure the photos for our wedding are stunning and bring back all the memories of our special day.

Yours Sincerely,

Casey and Rachelle

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the fantastic job you did of photographing our wedding in Samoa.  From the funny moments with the girl’s preparation to the emotional ceremony right through to the actions scenes in the swimming pool, you captured our day perfectly.  We love looking through our photos it takes us straight back to our wedding day and Samoa.  Andrew, thank you for your professional yet relaxed attitude our families thought you were one of our friends. You were very easy to work with.  Over and above the photos you have produced a wedding day DVD slideshow and wedding thank you cards which are ideal and saved us a lot of time and hassle.  We would highly recommend you to our friends and families.

Andrew was committed to getting us top quality photos which we would remember forever. He produced artistic shots that were completely amazing. He was genuinely concerned with getting the perfect shot and we had a lot of fun in the process.The results are a testimony to this.

 

Andrew was very organised. He made sure he knew where he would take shots prior to the day, this included traveling to the venue to investigate the week before. He is an experienced, professional and on the day this showed. He made the bride feel at ease before the wedding and we hardly noticed him during the service.

 

Travel and tight deadline were not an issue for Andrew. He communicated in a very professional and friendly manner and we were very thankful that he was able to produce thank you cards in such a small time frame.

 

We would have changed nothing about the day, including the photographer. We would recommend Andrew for your special day.

Testimonials

There is nothing better than going back in time to the best day of our lives. When we see our amazing photos, we are so grateful we used Andrew to do the full package of his services. He got everything we hoped for, and more! His stunning photos tell a unique story of our special day. People keep saying “my favourite ones were the...” so we still can’t make up our mind of which ones we like the most!


One of the best things about Andrew’s service is that he personalised the way he created our photos for us. We wanted a slightly kooky, eclectic wedding that had touches of our Chinese-New Zealander culture. We were impressed with his service the moment we met him: the way he brainstormed creative ideas prior to the day, the way he could shoot perfect improvised shots of friends and family laughing naturally, the way he sought tiny details of our wedding,  to the way he made us feel at ease as we were treated like stars for a day. All with a great sense of humour! We both recommend Andrew for your special day. Our day was perfect, and our visual memories of it are too, thanks to Andrew Labett.


Benny and Camellia

We were so impressed with the entire service that you offered; from scoping of some venues right through to amazing thank you cards.

Your creativity, enthusiasm, and commitment to our day resulted in fantastic photos.  The value for money was outstanding; everyone who has viewed our photos has commented about the quality of the photos and were quite stunned about the affordable package that you offered us. 

Your professionalism, fun attitude, and definite talent was so appreciated by us and we have photos that we are proud to show and will cherish forever.

 

Thank you so much!


Daniel and Teresa

Simply Awesome...

 

Our wedding day was perfect, an absolutely fantastic day and Andrew managed to capture exactly that. We are so happy with the photos from our special day and the feedback we have received from family and friends has been the same...everyone loves the photos. Andrew captured the true feeling of the day, funny little things that happened, happy moments, special moments, all great memories that will last forever in these photos.

 

We are having trouble deciding which photos to put into frames! We love them all!

 

Thank you so much for all your hard work, before, during and after our wedding. You were amazing, so easy to work with, organized, friendly and fun.

 

Would definitely choose you again and will (and already have) be certain to recommend you to everyone!

 

Thanks again,


Wayne and Sonya

Andrew was fantastic; he made the whole process easy. My husband and I felt very comfortable working with him. When we first met with Andrew one thing that set him apart from the other photographers that we had met with, was that he actually seemed interested in what we wanted, we weren’t just another client to him.


I appreciated that Andrew had done the research before the wedding; it meant that on the day he already knew where he wanted to shoot. Our photos were beautiful, we have had so many comments about how amazing they were, which is surprising considering the venue was very ordinary.  It just showed what a skilled photographer Andrew is.


Anthony and Tala

We would highly recommend Andrew as a wedding photographer - he was very professional, easy to get on with, and has given us some absolutely stunning photos of our wedding. 


Before the wedding, Andrew visited the wedding venue in the Wairarapa to have a look around, and had some excellent suggestions for where to take bridal party photos.  On the day of our wedding, Andrew was amazing. He organised the group photographic sessions with ease and was extremely professional. His photo sessions were spontaneous and fun, and people responded really well to him - and as a result, that happiness and enjoyment shone through in the photos. Andrew also had a knack of capturing those special moments, when people were relaxed and enjoying themselves, and completely unaware of the camera. 


We are incredibly impressed with the quality of Andrew's photos from our wedding, and they are a beautiful reminder of our special day. His photos not only told the story of our wedding, but also the stories of all of our guests. We could not recommend Andrew highly enough to anyone who wants to commission his services.


Kylie and James

Hi Andrew

 

I am Kylie's Dad, and I just have to email you to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your awesome photography of their wedding.

 

Kylie is our only daughter, so this is a "oncer", and you have done an amazing job capturing the myriad of delightful moments throughout the day. I have worked through the entire collection of 496 about 10 times so far, and still get emotional at the love, joy and humanity shown by Kylie and Jamie and everyone else there.

 

As to be expected there are heaps of little back stories across both family groups, but weddings bring people TOGETHER in the most joyful and delightful way, and you have captured some amazingly candid moments and meetings that we and our extended family will treasure forever.

 

I cannot thank you enough for recording for all of us those treasured memories and "coming togethers", and for your more formal photography which shows off our precious daughter and the wedding party and guests in the most wonderful way. We are hugely impressed and very grateful.

 

Many thanks again for the best collection of wedding photos that I have ever seen!!

 

Kind regards

 

Seager Mason

We are absolutely wrapped with the service that Andrew gave us. He went well beyond what we expected. Leading up to the wedding, Andrew spoke with us and even visited the venue with us to give us his ideas about photographic opportunities. On the day, Andrew was so full of energy and worked hard for the whole day. He captured some fantastic images and we love going back over our photos and reliving the memories. On the day, we also had several friends comment on how good Andrew was. We are very pleased we had Andrew to capture our special day, and would highly recommend him.

 

Nicole and Scott

We managed to find Andrew after our first photographer bailed on us. He came and met with us and showed us some fab photos.


Andrew popped along to the rehearsal and walked us through what he thought would make for some great photos. This also gave us a good idea of what would happen on the day.


On the day he was great and fitted in with what we wanted. Important for me were lots of photos of family and friends. Andrew took some lovely photos, some really candid moments of people laughing and enjoying the day. His relaxed approach meant that people were not even aware they were being photographed which made for some great shots. A number of people commented on how engaged with the process he was and how he managed to keep everyone smiling right to the end. No easy task!


Andrew had the photos ready for us in record time and we have been absolutely delighted with the results. The quality of the photos is excellent.  Being given a DVD of the photos has allowed us to be flexible with what we want to do with them. We were able to post the photos on our website which meant that family in Canada were able to see them straight away.


Thanks for being there on the day and making it so easy for us.


Debra and Dave

Dear Andrew

Thank you for photographing our wedding day.

Your professionalism and enthusiasm definitely showed – during the planning leading up to the day, during the wedding day and on the finished product of beautiful wedding photographs!

We were very pleased to have you photograph us.  Your easy going and humorous manner added to the enjoyment of our special day, not only for us, but for our wedding party and guests as well.

Thanks

Douglas and Kimberley

Andrew was very proactive in the lead up to the wedding - this was shown by arranging to go and see the venue and surrounding areas multiple times in order to get a mind full of ideas. He was great at making us laugh, and when combined with his professional and creative mind, allowed for us to get plenty of majestic photographs. His ability to listen to what we wanted, as well as understand the photo style we were after for the wedding made his photos even more of a success. It was an absolute pleasure to have Andrew photograph our wedding - he was well loved by us, the bridal party, our parents, and all the guests he interacted with.

Thanks Andrew

Ben and Chrissy Boardman

We found Andrew to be thorough, creative and enthusiastic about our wedding photography. His commitment to getting the best shots was fantastic and we trusted him explicitly. We appreciated him meeting us beforehand to discuss the style of photos we wanted and the information he gave us well in advance of the day helped us to plan events while still leaving enough time for the photos. We are happy with the end result and will treasure the photos always.


Tom and Nic

It took us a long time to find the right photographer for our wedding, searching for the right balance between quality and price. With Andrew, we found the best of both worlds; we were incredibly pleased with our photos and Andrew was great at finding a deal for exactly what we wanted.

Andrew is truly a champ, he is so dedicated and hardworking (obvious by the end of the night when he left exhausted!) and we would definitely recommend him to all our friends and anyone reading this.

He is such a great human being and incredibly easy to work with, and on our wedding day he knew exactly all the good shots to snap.

Thank-you once again Andrew, you made our day as perfect as it could be.

Thank you so much for agreeing to do our wedding photography for us and for doing such a great job.  We were thrilled with the photos you took on the day.  Your relaxed attitude, coupled with your organisation skills made you very easy to work with.  We really appreciated your suggestions about a venue for our wedding photography and couldn’t be happier with the one you found for us.  Battle Hill had so much variety and was such a stunning setting.

Thanks for getting the photos to us so quickly after the wedding.  With all the busy-ness after the wedding it felt like we had the photos straight away.
