That’s me

Headshot-cool-5527Hi, I’m Andrea - it's nice to meet you! 🙂

I could tell you the cliched story of how I’ve alwasy loved photography and how I got my first camera when I was eight years old… but it would be a lie. In fact I hadn’t held a camera in my hands until I was 24 and I certainly never intended to go into wedding photography. In fact, the last thing I ever wanted to be was a wedding photographer. But thanks to some very pushy friends (bless their hearts), a stranger on a plane and quite a few amazing clients, I am now in my third year shooting weddings and I could not love it more. I’m a travel junkie, animal lover, chocolate addict and an advocate for spreading kindness whenever you can.  I love capturing your special moments, be it the big ones or the small ones, with my camera… oh and also, as you can see, I like to laugh… a lot! dfg

I'm 29, living in a nice house with a lovely little backyard. I spend my days working at a classic nine to five corporate job, and my nights and weekends working for my dream of giving people photographs they love and cherish.  dfg

I am all for preserving memories. Of course there are many ways to achieve that, but I choose to do it by creating photographs. In my opinion they are one of the only things that we will be left with. Memories fade, no matter how hard we try to hold onto them, but a picture will remain for ages. fg

I love my family and friends. While I love spending time on my own to recharge my batteries every now and then, there is nothing better than being surrounded by loved ones. Whether it is meeting up with friends, or spending time with family, those moments in which you have the people that mean the world to you near, those are the ones that make me feel the happiest.

I love spending time outdoors. Sitting in the sun with coffee and a great book, putting on gloves and digging around in my garden to plant my own veggies, herbs and flowers, or simply going for long walks or a quick run to clear my head. It doesn't matter if it is sunny and warm or snowing like crazy... every now and then I even like walking around in the rain (but I must admit that doesn't happen all that often 😉 )

I love travelling. While I enjoy short city trips and places like London, New York, or Chicago make my heart beat faster, my heart longs for the untouched nature and the rustic flair that you often find in small Italian towns, northern England or Ireland. I have yet to see a ragged cliff or choppy sea I didn't like. In all honest my dream home would be a tiny cottage somewhere by the sea in England, surrounded with a garden full of wildflowers...

I love kind people. Call me naive but I love kind, open-minded and friendly people. In my opinion being kind is one of the single most important character traits a person can have.

I love jeans, t-shirts and my Chuck Taylors. When I say I live in jeans 24/7 it's no joke. Out of 365 days... there are probably 5 on which you can find me  wearing something else. 😉

I love chocolate cake. No seriously, if there's no chocolate I refuse to call it cake!

I love cute animals. As someone who grew up with two horses, some rabbits and a cat I cannot understand how people can live without some four-legged companion.

I love laughing! You know those times when laugh so hard that tears stream down your cheeks, your belly aches and you are gasping for air? Those are the moments I live for. dfd

I don't like negativity, arrogant and condescending people, small-mindedness  and petty behavior, judgy people or people who believe it's okay to get forward by putting others down. After all, we rise in lifting others!

I don't like spiders (well that's a shocker...) and I don't like sushi. That's about it. 🙂    dd
