We tell all couples the two most important things when looking for a wedding photographer are:

1. love their work

2. like that person

When choosing us to photograph your wedding you are paying for the way we see the world, the way we see love, and the way we capture your relationships. Are you moved by what you see? Do you love the creativity in the images? Do you see yourself in them?

Of all the people on your wedding day, your photographer is the one who will be with you throughout every waking moment (almost!). In order to know that everything will go smoothly and beautifully you need to have trust with your photographer. We believe there's no way to build trust without some sort of relationship. It starts by connecting and getting to know us early on in the process. We strongly encourage you to meet us and spend time together during our first meeting, on your engagement session, and any other chance we get before the wedding day. When the day arrives we are not strangers, but rather friends who are there to document the best day of your life!

We cannot say enough about how INCREDIBLE our photographer Andres was!! He was unbelievably attentive to every detail and was super organized. He was such a nice addition to our day, as his calm and pleasant disposition made working with him so enjoyable! He spent so much time prior to the wedding getting to know us and finding out exactly what we wanted and expected, and he delivered everything we hoped for and more! The photos came out fantastic, as he added his artistic flare to provide us with pictures that truly captured every detail of our day. I have not one negative comment! We have definitely found a photographer that we will continue to use for life! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!

From the moment we met Andres and Kim Valenzuela for our first consultation, we knew we had found the most qualified and skilled--and the kindest-- photographers to document our wedding and engagement. We still stand by the fact that choosing Andres Valenzuela Photography was one of the best decisions we made and our favorite vendor.

Andres and Kim understand the intricate details and beauties of a wedding and engagement and know exactly how to capture these sacred and special moments. The literal and figurative lens in which they see and capture weddings is absolutely stunning. We are so happy with all of our photos!!

On our wedding day, Andres and Kim were super flexible, understanding, encouraging and working extremely hard to capture the most creative and elegant photos and also make sure we weren't being overwhelmed either. I was so thankful for their presence, help and being able to work seamlessly with all the other vendors and distractions. Andres and Kim are phenomenal people and in my opinion, the best wedding photographers.

We are so pleased by their work, personalities, and professionalism that we plan to work with them again when we decide to document more memories of our future children and family! Andres and Kim-- thank you thank you thank you!

Without a doubt, selecting Andrès as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made! Andrès is an incredibly talented photographer. His photographs are not only aesthetically beautiful, but they capture the emotions between people in a candid and natural way. When I first discovered Andrès’ work online, I was memorized by the beautiful moments he captures on film and had a hard time pulling myself away from the computer! I knew I was very interested in having Andrès as our photographer before meeting him, but immediately after meeting him, we were completely sold! Andrès and his wife Kim are not only amazing at what they do, but they are wonderful people. Our engagement session felt more like a double date then a photo shoot. Because we were so at ease with Andrès and Kim, we were able to be ourselves in front of the camera. As someone who is not a fan of being photographed, I am truly amazed at how enjoyable the experience was for me! Just a couple weeks after our session, we received our engagements photos and they did not disappoint! Andrès did a phenomenal job capturing our relationship on camera. Our friends and family were blown away.

On the day of our wedding, Kim and Andrès were incredible to see in action.
They knew how to maximize every moment to most efficiently document the day. They had even learned the names of our bridal party members and immediate family. Again, they made it easy to feel natural in front of the camera. Knowing that I was in good hands and that they had everything under control, I was able to enjoy every moment. Kim practically catered to my every move during our photo shoots – she carried my train, helped control my hair, assisted with my long veil. She even fixed my hair when my hairpin came out and helped bustle my dress! I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her!

Needless to say, our wedding photos are spectacular. We would hire Andrès and Kim again in a heartbeat!

Andres Valenzuela along with his wife, Kim are incredible. There is hands down, no other photographer quite like Andres. I have been in the hospitality industry for 7 years and counting. I have worked with Andres and Kim on a professional level on many occasions. Now it was finally my day, my wedding, and the simplest decision was to ask Andres to take care of my day, OUR day!

After we signed the contract with Andres, he found little ways to keep in touch with my fiancé, Kris, and I, throughout the journey. Whether a little note in the mail, a "checking-in" phone call...Andres and Kim became a part of the story that we were writing.

Our engagement session was held in Shakespeare Garden, Central Park on an October late afternoon. We managed to beat the rain but brought along an umbrella, in case. Andres and Kim guided us through the whole experience. Capturing Kris and I in our natural state of romance, just loving on each other. Andres comfortably embellished the love story he was witnessing. After our photo shoot we shared dinner for four together as the rain fell outside of Heidi's House on the East Side.

The day of the wedding came less than a year later. A gorgeous day, sunny with a slight breeze. Andres and Kim arrived at my parents' house around noon and two photographers stayed with my groom and his men. Having Andres and Kim there at my parents' house while I finished getting ready was so calming. They captured all of the details and continued to create the love story. The whole day Kim was never far behind, ensuring the photos we requested from the beginning were taken and family was nearby to keep the whole process seamlessly efficient. Her smile helped me rest easy.

I cannot say enough about Andres Valenzuela and Kim Valenzuela. Selecting them will be one of the best decisions you make! From the bottom of our hearts, we love you both.

Andres did an amazing job for our July 19, 2013 wedding! The wedding photos are incredible! I couldn't be happier! We also loved our engagement photos and spending time with Andres and his wife Kim and meeting their daughter! Andres is a wonderful person and makes the whole wedding day so relaxed from the moment he arrives. My husband also thought Dave, our second photographer, was awesome! He took shots of the groomsmen, which were excellent too! Andres is absolutely the best wedding photographer! You will not be disappointed! This is one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning!

We used Andres Valenzuela Photography for our wedding on July 13, 2013. To say that it was one of the best decisions we made would be an understatement. After stumbling on a friend's beautiful engagement pictures, I immediately set up an appointment with Andres and his wife, Kim. From the moment we walked into their office, we loved them. They were so professional and had such a passion about what they do. We immediately knew that they were the ones we wanted to trust to capture our wedding day.

A few months later, one year before our wedding, we took our engagement pictures in Long Beach Island. Both Andres and Kim made the 2 1/2 hour drive without a question. The weather was not cooperating so we had to make 3 trips to the lighthouse before it finally stopped raining. We ended up going for drinks and dinner in between. They told us that we could always reschedule and it was no big deal! By the time we took the pictures, my husband and I felt so comfortable with Andres and Kim...they were like old friends! They made what would be an uncomfortable experience so much fun. When we got the pictures back, we were blown away. Each one was better than the next. We had a hard time picking our favorites!

A year later, on 7/13/13, they photographed our wedding. As always they were completely professional. They knew the names of all of family members and our bridal party. Again, the weather was not cooperating. Somehow, we were able to get pictures outside at the country club. Throughout the evening, our guests kept telling us what an amazing photographer Andres is.

Unsurprisingly, our wedding pictures came out awesome. They are so beautiful and really capture the day and our emotions. We keep looking at them over and over.

Not only are Andres and Kim extremely professional and the best at what they do, they are amazing people. They are, by far, the best photographers in our area!

Andres Valenzuela is a master of photography! He got pictures that captured incredibly meaningful moments and I didn't even know he was there. This was by far the best day of my life and now I have pictures that can last a lifetime. I think you can go cheap on many things for your wedding, but your photographer must not be one of them! The other thing that was vitally important was how safe and comfortable we felt with him and his wife. They are both very professional and yet so personable. You feel like you've known them for years and it helps to make you feel safe and comfortable when you are often in such an emotionally vulnerable place. This in turn means that your pictures are filled with genuine honest joy and peace. I can't recommended them enough. You won't regret it!

We can't say enough about Andres and Kim! They are kind, generous, thoughtful, and all around great people. From the first meeting, we felt extremely comfortable with Andres and Kim. They make you feel as you are their long time friends.

We only met with Andres and knew we wanted him to shoot our wedding! Pictures are extremely important and we couldn't have made a better decision.

My fiance (at the time) being a big football fan, we really wanted to do our engagement shoot and Giants Stadium. We told Andres and he was excited! Unfortunately, we were not able to get in due to events during that month. We were stumped on were to go. Andres came in to help out and gave us some ideas and picked a perfect location. He made us feel extremely comfortable in our engagement shoot. After the shoot, we went to a great dinner with Andres and Kim. They got to know us a little bit better. They really make an effort to get to know you before your big day so they capture YOUR love story.

It came to our big day. Andres and Kim were at my home early to capture all the details. There was another photographer at my husband's house. They made me feel calm even in a little moment of crisis. Again, we tried to take our wedding pictures at the stadium and again were denied due to an event. Andres was great at picking out another location.

The pictures are fantastic!!! I can't say enough about them. Now the hard part is picking out ones for the wedding album. Not only do we feel like we picked the best photographer, but we feel like we gain 2 new friends.

Thank you for everything!
