Esther & Jeff – Andy is the BEST combination of talent and work ethic; his artistry is incredible but witnessing how hard he works was what really put us at complete ease. Over the 6 months between the engagement and wedding, we grew to appreciate Andy even more–not only for his professionalism but for his friendship. At the end of the day, we felt like we were being photographed by a friend who we trust and respect. A vendor relationship can’t get any better than that!
Andy responded to every single one of my e-mail inquiries (and there were MANY of those) promptly. His responses were always transparent and thorough and he was able to inject humor into these exchanges–a huge plus! It was clear that Andy approached these e-mails as a way to build a relationship by taking time to hear out and understand his client.
We took our engagement photos in Chicago and this is where Andy truly set himself apart as someone who goes above and beyond for his clients. He was incredibly gracious with his time and resources–we can’t thank him enough! We started shooting shortly after lunch and stopped at around midnight!! We don’t know how Andy did it, but he was able to lead the shoot effectively while making sure that we were at ease and having fun! We even scored a late-night shot at the bean after Millennium Park was closed. It was just us and the bean at night with the skyline behind us. Magical!
Before our wedding day, Andy made sure that he was up to speed on our day-of timeline. And as promised he and his second shooter, Ginger, arrived at the venue promptly at 6 AM for our 10:30 AM ceremony to take the detail shots. Andy kept things moving efficiently and he was able to capture all the tender, goofy, memorable moments of our wedding. We were absolutely thrilled with our pictures when we saw that SincereLi had really captured all the warmth and beauty of our wedding day. Thank you for everything, SincereLi! We love you!
Jennifer & Marcus – Hands down would recommend Andy and his team for your wedding. We had about 7 months for planning and went through what felt like a ton of review sites and recommendations from friends. In the end, we ended up meeting with 3 different photographers and, from the beginning, we could tell that Andy was the one for us. Andy and his wife were easy going and answered all of our questions. Not having gone through this before, we were concerned that there might be photo’s that we wanted, but didn’t know to ask for (i.e. different photo’s and vantage points throughout the course of our wedding day.) Andy was able to provide a rough timeline right at the start which we refined as we went. If there was 1 thing I would recommend, it would be to get the engagement photo’s through Andy as well. Our engagement session was a ton of fun as we spent the day around the Capitol and Capitol Hill. More importantly, this early session allowed us to get to know Andy and to loosen up in front of the camera. The last thing you want to be on your wedding day is stiff because you don’t know your photographer! Overall, we were so impressed. Our wedding went off without a hitch and we now have some amazing memories memorialized in photo’s to look back upon.
Andrea & Ki – Andy is truly AMAZING!!I cannot say it enough!– professional, easy going, artistic, and a pleasure to work with. He did a stunning job for our engagement session and really took care of us on the wedding day. I love his style- modern, clean, fresh and timeless! I would highly recommend him.
Samantha & Patrick – I don’t really know how or where to begin describing my experience with Andy and Sarah, they are ridiculously good at everything they do with photography. From the moment we contacted Andy to the end, it was a pleasure and so easy to deal with. They go the extra mile to fit into your schedule and is very sensitive to the stress created during this ceremony called wedding. The whole time you will get 100% of Andy and his helpful service.
If you want to smile the whole process, get the best photo quality, and lifetime satisfaction for your special day, then why look further? If you are in the DMV area you just found gold, if not you still can find this gold. No if’s, and’s, or but’s just pick up your phone, call Andy and let him work his magic. You want to use Sincereli, trust me. OH! and if you are thinking about getting married, you better book him now because that’s how good he is. That is all.
Din & Calvin – We were so lucky to have photographers that we were so comfortable with. Andy+Sarah were down to earth people who made our engagement shoot as well as our wedding very special. They were able to capture every aspect of our wedding so beautifully, they even stayed a little longer to get a few more shots. We have only the nicest things to say about the two of them. Many of our guest loved Andy+Sarah and felt like they were part of the guests list. We would not hesitate recommending SincereLi Photography to capture your wedding.
Esther & Amir – Andy and Sarah at SincereLi Photography are AMAZING! Not only did they provide us with beautiful wedding photos but engagement shoot AND wedding video. They are organized, puntual, and attentive. Three things a bride and groom loves during the hectic wedding planning process.
Andy takes wonderful photos without being too pushy. I’ve been around photogs who are so demanding and uptight. But Andy is laid back and gives direction without being too forward so the pictures come out natural and genuine. I never felt at any moment during the engagement or wedding shoot that I was “Posing” just for the camera. Sarah is super creative and suggested fun poses to try during the shoots. They are also adventurous and wasn’t afraid to do what ever it took to get a great shot 😉
Not only did our engagement and wedding photographs come out beautiful but our wedding video was also a big hit! They did a great job capturing and editing all the sweet moments during our wedding!!!
I can’t stop raving about SincereLi photography and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants to remember their special day with gorgeous pictures!!!
Grace & Ryan – Andy is an amazing photojournalist that knows how to capture the most special moments with his photography. He really goes the extra mile in every regard and would recommend his services to any bride looking for a truly special, talented and unique photographer.
Suzanne & Andy – Hiring Sincereli Photography was the second best decision I made while planning our wedding — the first best decision being the man I married, of course.
I never liked taking pictures, so I didn’t even want to hire a professional photographer for our wedding since I thought the pictures provided by our DSLR yielding guests would suffice. We chose to do a destination wedding at The Ritz-Carlton in St. Thomas, and when I found out a photographer was included in the wedding package, I tried to swap that service for a buffet spread upgrade. True story.
After looking at a sample of the photographer’s work (the one included in the wedding package), my husband suggested we use a different photographer he knew. I couldn’t understand why he would choose professional wedding photos over crab legs, but since I was making 99% of the decisions for our wedding, I thought I’d let him have this one thing. And that is how I met Andy & Sarah of SincereLi Photography…
We got an extraordinary package deal that included engagement shots, a pre-wedding shoot on the beach at St. Thomas, and of course the wedding shoot — so unfortunately, I couldn’t complain. When Andy & Sarah arrived in Boston for our engagement shots, I braced myself for an awkward & uncomfortable day of shooting, but I was almost instantly surprised at how easy Andy made us feel in front of the camera. Andy & Sarah were both so patient and easy-going, that it actually made the photo shoot fun and feel natural!
The pre-wedding & wedding day shoots experience were just as great. As frazzled as I felt before the wedding, being with Andy & Sarah made it feel as though we were just hanging out with old friends — just that these friends had huge cameras pointing in our faces. I think feeling comfortable with your photographer is so key, and because both their personalities are so great & laid-back, I could imagine every bride & groom having as great of an experience as we did.
Also, it is so evident they are hard-working. So much so that I actually started to feel bad. I almost wanted to hide their cameras for a bit during the reception so they could take a breather & enjoy themselves, but they were so keen in capturing every moment & detail. Even though it was Andy’s first time in St. Thomas as well, he took the time to find the best places for pictures prior to our shoot so that we wouldn’t lose any time — even the Ritz-Carlton’s Event Coordinator said she never knew such beautiful spots existed on the resort after seeing Andy’s pictures.
Lastly, their work is phenomenal. Andy has such an artistic eye that he is able to capture the most extraordinary & unique shots that really utilize the environment around the subjects. Take a second to look on their blog (http://sincereli.com) to see all the creative ways they shoot wedding rings and it’ll prove my point perfectly. So if Andy asks you to climb a tree, trust that he’s not trying to make you look like a fool, but is envisioning a perfect picture. The turn around time for the photos was fast, and in addition to access to the online digital gallery, we were later gifted with a beautifully customized CD album of our photos & video (which was also amazing!!).
I honestly cannot recommend Andy & Sarah from SincereLi Photography enough. Because pictures are the only way to capture one of the most important days of your life, you will need a photographer you can trust to capture every moment and produce them in an extraordinary way. I promise that Andy & Sarah are these type of photographers — and will make sure you are having fun while in front of the camera!
