We could not have been more delighted with our wedding photos and the family sessions we had during our son's first year are fantastic! Highly recommend
We chose Andy after seeing examples of his work at our wedding venue, Hedingham Castle. They were the best wedding photos we'd ever seen so we just had to book him.
Andy is professional and a very friendly guy, he made us feel relaxed and comfortable on our wedding day and he helped things to run smoothly.
Our finished photos are just stunning, we could not be happier with them. Thank you so much Andy!
We knew we were on to something very special when we chose Andy Griffin Photography for our wedding.
From the very first meeting with Andy, to our engagement shoot and right up to our wedding day itself, we received a first class service throughout.
Andy understood exactly the kind of style we envisioned for our photos and he made us feel so relaxed and at ease in front of the camera.
Andy's photos completely portrayed our personalities and flawlessly documented our special day!
He perfectly captured every magical moment of our wedding and we want to say a massive thank you for providing us with photos full of emotion, great quality and beauty; granting us memories we will forever treasure.
Andy is friendly, professional and his attention to detail is exceptional.
I would highly recommend Andy without any hesitation to anyone. He exceeds expectations and his photography is absolutely incredible.

Andy was our wedding photographer over 8 years ago now. He was amazing and just absolutely brilliant. We still love our photos and I love seeing his posts on here. Anyone looking for a photographer, look no further, you've found him!
3 years on and I am increasingly grateful for choosing such a brilliant photographer for our wedding. The photos captured on the day are superb and priceless. Thanks Andy x
Choosing Andy to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. He took the most amazing shots and captured our day just perfectly. He made us and our guests feel so relaxed and we were all just able to enjoy it. Thank you so much again Andy - we will treasure our photos forever!
We chose Andy to shoot our wedding because we thought his set piece shots were outstanding. What we got was that and much more: 675 photos which tell the story of our day better than we ever imagined possible. Absent friends and relatives tell us that they bring the day to life, that they convey spirit, feel and emotion. Everyone says they're the best wedding photos they've ever seen, ever.
Other reviewers say Andy's a nice guy and is great to work with. We agree. He also keeps a low profile yet somehow comes up with killer shots at the heart of the action, hour after hour. How does he do that?
Spectacular, thanks Andy.
Andy is a super talented photographer without a doubt, but the best part for us, was that Andy was down to earth and really approachable, and genuinely a nice guy! Nothing was too much of an ask or too much trouble. Made us feel totally relaxed and comfortable and we were able to all have a laugh along the way! Thanks again Andy for creating some truly memorable photographs of our wedding day.
Our time with Andy is going to be the best memory of our wedding! Since the first moment we met he came across as the perfect mix of professionality and friendliness. We were both terrified to be posing in front of a camera on our most important day, but in a couple of hours chat Andy became our friend, our advisor, our coach, our laugh...he made us feel awesome, and all the emotions of that day and our dreams are beautifully captured in his amazing work.
Every moment of the journey with Andy is special, his attention to details is impressive, from the pre-shooting to make you feel comfortable around him, to the preview of the shots in his lovely studio, with the right light and a glass of champagne. He spoiled us from the very first moment till the very end.
Honored to have a page for us in Andy's blog as well :) : Hedingham Castle Winter Wedding.
We can't wait to find an occasion to have another shooting experience with Andy and we highly recommend him to everyone!!!
Thanks again Andy for all the magic!

Andy Griffin was the perfect choice of photographer for our wedding at Braxted Park last September. He was a true professional and made us feel so welcome and at ease right from the first meeting at his studio, through to the pre-shoot, wedding day and the photo viewing after the event.
By having a chat with us beforehand and then holding a pre-shoot at the venue, Andy was able to envisage just the style of photos that we were looking for. The pre-shoot really helped us to get used to being in front of the camera and relax in preparation for the shots on the big day.
The images from our wedding day are incredible and we are so pleased with our choice. The album is fantastic, with such perfect photos that we can look back on and treasure forever.
All in all, we had such an enjoyable experience throughout, and can't thank and recommend Andy Griffin enough!
