Recap of 2007 - Jenifer & Tyler in San Diego, California

Hey everyone! It's Brook, D`Andrew's assistant again. Here's my final post keeping you up to date with D`Andrew through 2007. Since the blog was neglected last year, you can now catch up and see some of his amazing photos and fun shoots from 2007 by reading my following posts. So how should we end the year - how about a beautiful San Diego wedding! Sounds like a great idea in December to get away from the snow and cold.

This silhouette shot takes my breath away! The colors, the love, it's magic.

A moment captured ~ what secrets is Tyler whispering to Jenifer? I guess we won't know, but D`Andrew caught her sweet smile in response.

Wedding pressures are over and Jenifer is feeling carefree!







2007 Recap - Rochelle & Eric in Scotland

What could be more of a fairytale wedding than to have it in a castle in Scotland? Rochelle and Eric created just this for their wedding in October of 2007 and retained D`Andrew to document the beautiful event.



Here's a shot of D`Andrew in Action during the wedding
D`Andrew got into the spirit of the festivities, wearing his own kilt and he fit right in with the Scottish wedding.
Mystical -
Now there's the way to cut the cake - use your sword!

More of 2007 - Billee Jo's Maternity

Sacred, Fashionable, Contemporary, and Stunning! Billee Jo loved her wedding, engagement and signature bridal pictures D`Andrew captured for her. So, she again called upon D`Andrew's artistic ability to document her stage of motherhood. D`Andrew considers his maternity photography work sacred and beautiful. Following the shoot BilleeJo was excited and emailed the studio: "I had fun getting the pictures done and I am so glad I decided to do it. Pregnancy makes you feel so ugly and fat and after seeing the pictures it made me feel so better about myself..."

Billee had a total blast during her shoot as D`Andrew brought out artistic beauty highlighting the contour of her tummy in a state of fashion and elegance.

Recap of 2007 - Fitness Photo Shoot

D`Andrew was selected to document the portfolio of prominent national trainer, Michael Banks, who is an elite expert in the health and fitness industry. Banks' clientele has included many professional athletes, and other celebrity icon names, as well as being the Olympic Fitness Facility Adviser during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. D`Andrew has had the opportunity to train and work with Michael on a personal basis and his comments are this: "Michael is a phenomenal trainer and the best I've ever worked with on a personal training level. His understanding of the human body's physical conditions and the betterment thereof, are unmatched when he deploys his training methods." D`Andrew refers several of his models and clients to Body by Banks for personal training preceding their expedition portfolio shoots with him. Be sure to check back for a later post of D`Andrew on film set during the creation of Body by Banks International Cable Tv/DVD Fitness Videos.

Michael is an incredibly distinguished gentleman.


D`Andrew created this dramatic scene with Michael with his hands reaching heavenward with the sunset and the water illustrating the man of character and gratitude of life Michael posesses. This shot has no doubt become one of Michael's signature images!


Bad to the Bone Banks!

Recap of 2007 - Stephanie & Deric's Wedding

It's still me - Brook. An update of 2007 would be incomplete without showing the wedding of Stephanie and Deric. (remember their amazing photos in France & Germany?)
Stephanie's red flowers stand out beautifully in this photo!
I love the soft look in this picture - so romantic. You can feel the love.
Beautiful Bride!
Kicking back and having some fun.
This photo is so dramatic!
Enjoy their slideshow: WATCH SLIDESHOW

Recap of 2007 - Trash the Dress

So Trash the Dress photo shoots are the "New" rage in wedding photography. D`Andrew has been doing this style of shoot for years. Our clients want to make the most of their wedding memories and want to have some amazing photos in the wedding dress to always remember. You only get to wear the dress once, unless you schedule a Signature Bride shoot to capture something truly artistic and completely YOU. And you don't have to trash your dress to obtain these amazing photos (unless you really want to).

Check out these stunning photos of Brynn -

Recap of 2007 - continued

Hi there - it's Brook again. Here's some more of our favorite photos from 2007:

Sherry & Neil - Tempe, Arizona. I love Sherry's smile in this picture!

Whitney - countryside in Utah. Fun train track photos!

Angie wanted something totally unique for her photos, so an expedition shoot to Moab was arranged with D`Andrew. She had a blast and ended up with some really creative - amazing pictures. This is a collage print we created for her to display at her wedding. Notice in one of the pictures in this collage, Angie has an electric guitar as D`Andrew had brought this along and thought it would look artistic in this setting with her beauty.

Hitchhiking bride... Looks like something from a movie - like maybe Runaway Bride 2

Angie & Ron are such a cute couple and D`Andrew brought out their playfulness and you can really see their love in these courtship pictures.BilleJo has such a beautiful, striking look. I just love all the diversified expressions she got in her shoot.
Tee time! The coloring in this photo is gorgeous!
