Andy Thomas Wedding Photographer (LMPA- LBIPP)
Andy, the founder of Chic Wedding Photography is the heart and soul of the business. A multi-award-winning photographer, Andy likes to bring an element of fun to your Wedding day.
Andy’s sole ambition is to produce high-quality wedding imagery but in an informal manner that puts both the Bride and Groom at ease.
However, don’t be surprised if Andy adds some innovation to your day, as he is known for involving all the family in his wedding shoots.
He’s outgoing but very down to earth and is a true professional.
His work has been recognised by the world’s best wedding photographer associations:
Andy has received many accolades from industry brands and personalities. His recent wedding photography awards include:
- Essex Wedding Awards 2020 – Wedding Photography Highly Commended
- Essex Wedding Awards 2020 – Wedding Videography Finalist
He was also the recipient of the prestigious MPA award:
- Best Wedding Photographer – East Anglia
In addition, Andy’s work has been featured in the following magazines:
- Absolute Bridal Magazine
- The Essex Wedding Magzine
- Guides For Brides “Real Weddings”
He would spend hours and hours (and lots of his late grandfathers’ money) developing his own creations in the darkroom.
In 2012 he nervously began photographing Weddings.
Within a few years, he was taking bookings for 20 to 30 couples a year.
Fast forward to 2020 and Andy has been lucky enough to shoot over 400 weddings.
When he’s not photographing weddings
Andy is a family man himself and away from Wedding Photography, he spends his time with wife Lauren and son Arthur, who unashamedly are his inspiration away from the day job.
However, he believes Fatherhood has given even more meaning to the importance of his photography.
And he truly believes this has helped to improve his work when storytelling for others.
