Kind Words

I've received so many great comments, emails, letters and cards from my lovely couples over the 25+ years I've been shooting Kent weddings. It's absolutely wonderful to know my wedding photography means so much.
There's no better job satisfaction than hearing how happy the photos have made people feel. 
Below are just a few of my latest reviews.

Andy is one amazing photographer! Out of all the services and things I got for my wedding I can honestly say the photographer I booked (Andy) was the best decision!

The whole experience from beginning to end was absolutely top notch. Andy was always replying to my emails straight away with any queries I had and explained everything perfectly with a happy to help any time attitude.

When Andy arrived he came a bit earlier to check out the venue which made me feel at ease as it was a big venue and glad he made the effort to do this as time goes fast on the day and he managed to remember all the best places to go for the best shots. His charisma, attitude, funniness and genuineness really showed on the wedding day and was just a delight to have. He helped with fanning my trail of the dress when my husband or bridemaids where being lazy haha ( I really appreciated that! ) Every photo came out absolutely beautiful.

The standard of the pictures is so clear and crisp. Andy was very professional with his work. Giving a couple sneak peak piks the day after to get you exited and then all your pictures very soon after the wedding with multiple options on how to retrieve your pictures.

Easy access for guests and downloadable options . ( so easy) Amazing prices for his amazing work!! I can’t recommend Andy enough! Thank you again for being a absolute star ⭐️ hope to book you again :) Zainab

My new husband and I couldn’t recommend Andy enough!! From the moment Andy joined the bridal party for pre wedding shots to the moment he left he completely lightened the atmosphere and put everyone at ease. We received our photos back within 6 days and my word are they AMAZING!! Better than either of us could have hoped for, we’ve had so many compliments on the photos. I would give Andy 10 out of 10 for his professionalism and kind nature. Hayley

Andy photographed our wedding on the 13th July 2019, from the start to finish Andy was very professional, friendly and just fitted in with everyone on the day. The photos he produced are amazing and better than we imagined, he got every shot we requested and then natural photos too. We couldn’t recommend him enough to others, if in future we want a photographer for any reason we will sure to be in touch with Andy. Thanks Andy!!!! Chelsea

We just got our wedding photos back from Andy at Howling Basset and we are over the moon. They are beautiful and everyone has been very complimentary. He was so clever with lighting and we have such stunning shots to cherish forever. Thank you again Andy! Roxy

"Andy captured the day just as we remember it and we will treasure the photos for years to come."

We could not rate Andy highly enough. Right from the initial booking enquiry he has been great, very responsive & professional and was so kind when we had to re-schedule our wedding from 2020 to 2021. On the day he made us & our guests feel at ease and was lovely to be around. We've now had our photos back and couldn't be happier. Katherine George

Would recommend using Howling Basset time and time again! Emma

Andy from start to finish was very professional and a dream to work with. My partner and I aren’t the most comfortable in front of a camera however Andy has an amazing way of putting you at ease and capturing just the most beautiful pictures. Andy was great at directing people in a professional and polite way and our family and friends have all been commenting on how great he was. Our pictures came just one week after our wedding- much quicker than expected! We also received well above the amount we expected and they are all gorgeous. We’ll treasure these pictures for years to come. Would recommend using Howling Basset time and time again!

I just wanted to say again thank you for photographing our wedding.  Looking through the photos it was like reliving the day again.  They are totally amazing and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to friends and family! Your really did capture all of the moments we wished for. Grace

We booked Andy to photograph our wedding and I can’t recommend him highly enough. I was lucky enough to have seen Andy’s work previously when he photographed my sister’s wedding so I knew we were in good hands. Right from the off, Andy was extremely easy to deal with, communicative and helpful in the lead up to our big day. On the day itself Andy made us all feel really at ease and managed to snap some amazing photos, I can’t say that there was a bad one amongst the hundreds that he sent through! The whole service and finished product were exceptional, I have just received our album and it is truly beautiful. It’s a big thumbs up from me!

Hi Andy,
These are beautiful, thank you SO much. Adam and I are both chuffed with all of the photos and have sent them round to friends and family who have all said how lovely they are.Thank you so much again for everything on Saturday and for capturing the happiness and love on our day. Let me know if you would like me to write a review anywhere, we would be more than happy to do so! THANK YOU!!

Could not have asked for a better wedding photographer and would recommend Andy (Howling Basset) to ANYBODY. Andy immediately put both me and my partner at ease with his jokes, he had us in fits of giggles and our pictures are all the better for it. He’s also great with kids and captured some wonderful shots of both our 3-year-old and 10-year-old nieces alike. Nothing was too much trouble, he even stayed a bit later than normal to capture our firework display and we’re so glad he did as the pictures are spectacular. We had so much fun with Andy on the day and are now blown away by the photos we have had back (in super speedy time, only five days later!). Whenever we look through them we are transported back to our day, they’re memories that we’ll treasure for the rest of our lives together and we couldn’t be more grateful to Andy for capturing our special day so perfectly. (Also, Andy travelled from Kent to Warwickshire for our wedding, so don’t rule him out just because you’re not local to him!) Thanks again, Andy! 🙂

We were lucky enough to have seen Andy at work as he had previously photographed our friend’s wedding. On their wedding day you just knew the photos would be perfect from seeing him in action, an absolute natural! When it came to choosing our photographer, we knew we didn’t have far to look. Of course our venue had their recommendations but they just seemed to lack something. It’s hard to describe but Andy’s work is just a level above the rest ... He just went about his business capturing some amazing photos. We do have one issue though. 8 weeks after the wedding and I’m still having debates with my wife as to what photos we want to get on canvases and display around the house. We received hundreds of photos from Andy and every single one is excellent. We just can’t pick our favorites as they are all too good. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Howling Basset Photography to anyone looking to have one of the most amazing days in their life captured in the best possible way ... Ben Gregory

Oh my goodness – we are just literally overwhelmed by Andy’s pictures! We’ve been looking through them and crying and laughing alternately – just SO many absolutely beautiful and stunning shots! Andy managed to encapsulate our special day so perfectly with his pictures- they just sum up the joy and emotion, and capture the spectacular grounds in the perfect Autumn weather. And the hilarious Dad dancing photos from the evening – just fab! We honestly couldn’t have wished for better. Andy was wonderful to have on board at our wedding – always discreet (half of the photos we hadn’t even realised he was taking!), extremely professional, warm and friendly, relaxed, and at pains to ensure we were relaxed too, very funny and hard working. Thank you – We couldn’t recommend Andy highly enough.Heather

Andy at Howling Basset Photography was amazing. He was kind, funny, blended in when he needed to and worked well with... all of our guests. The photographs truly capture how perfect our day was. He even drove the grooms waistcoat to the venue when he left it at home! I would highly recommend him and a couple on our wedding day even asked for his details for their upcoming wedding.read more

From our initial enquiry, right through to our wedding day the service we received from Andy was nothing short of... exceptional! His response times have been fantastic and he managed to turn round our wedding photographs in only a week! On our wedding day he put all of our guests at ease and we received such wonderfully natural shots, it was just amazing. We would have no reservation in using Andy again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional, natural, talented photographer. Cannot thank you enough!read more

We would highly recommend Andy from Howling Basset Photography. The photos from our wedding day have exceeded our... expectations. They've captured our special day perfectly and are wonderful keepsakes. Andy is very personable and fitted in well with the wedding party, putting everyone at ease when photos were being taken. The aftercare service has been brilliant also, with all our photos easily accessible for us and our guests to view. Thank you, Andy!read more

Andy did our wedding photos. We spent a long time search for a photographer and Andy impressed us from the word 'Go'.... In the run up he was on the ball, efficient and pro-active and then on the day was just fantastic. The after service was also excellent, we got our photos very quickly via an online portal that we could share and a really nicely presented USB. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to other brides!read more

Having just had or first anniversary and looking back at our photos, I realised that we never reviewed Andy. This is in... no way a reflection of him or the amazing photos that he takes, purely an oversight by a very forgetful lady 🙄Andy was a joy to have at our wedding, taking so many beautiful photos and managing to get around to take pictures of everyone. He was totally non-invasive so nobody felt pressured and at the same time so welcoming to others who were taking photos with their own cameras and he made everyone feel comfortable.I would absolutely recommend Andy to everyone! What a lovely man and superb at his job!read more

Being in December this was done at our home. How he took such amazing photos in just our living room still bemuses me!On our wedding day Andy just blended in. Not only an excellent photographer, but a lovely guy. It was as if he was just one of the guests and slotted in. Nothing felt forced on the day.

Andy took photos of us for our engagement shoot and our wedding. The photos are simply stunning - they are natural and... bright and Andy really knows how to work with light to capture wonderful memories. His photos have a beautiful quality to them and we have received so many compliments about his work and him from many of our guests. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer! 🙂read more
