Where should we start? Andrea was great! Her work spoke for itself. She made our special day the best! She has professional rates and professional quality along with a professional attitude. She walked us through the whole process and captured every moment we wanted and even those we didn't think about.

I was referred to Andrea from a friend who used her for her boudoir photos last year and was impressed with her beautiful boudoir and wedding work and especially her italian wedding albums. Andrea explained to me options for us to shoot the girls and guys separately before the ceremony, basically the process for whole day and the options for the wedding albums. Andrea was just fabulous - she was there, behind the scenes, helping out and was more organized than the wedding coordinator at the country club. When it came time to cut the cake they restaurant the they left it in the corner against the wall - Andrea told them to move it to the center and got great shots of us cutting the cake and feeding each other. She also got great shots of me tossing the bouquet in the air! Andrea was also a big hit with our families. We just got back the wedding albums and all I have to say is OH MY GOD, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!! Use Andrea and definitely ask for the italian wedding albums!

I was looking for a portrait photographer and found Andrea's website. I was really impressed with her portraits portfolio and although I needed a shots of me for my website and also brochures and bio that I send out to prospective clients and felt she could help me provide the best professional, but friendly and trusting presence as possible. She did such a fantastic job- my wife and colleagues told me they couldn't believe the photos. In my extremely competitive business a picture is worth a 1,000 words. Use Andrea- you want be sorry!

Andrea created a wonderful series of shots for a friend to submit as part of a a portfolio for his acting career and he got selected and chosen because of the shots. I ended up hiring Andrea to do portraits for my website and she did a stunning job. I just finished having boudoir photos and prints done by Andrea as a gift for my boyfriend's birthday and they are really sexy and classy. My friends tell me I look like a model, which I am not, but I do look hot! Use Andrea!

We just got our wedding pictures back and they are fantastic! We couldn't be happier. Andrea was great at our wedding - it was crazy and everything went so fast. It was special for Derek and I to look at the pictures because Andrea really made us look great and she caught many moments, laughs and expressions of us and our family and friends that we will love forever. The colors in her pictures and prints are amazing!!! Get the metallic prints from her! I am already planning a lingerie session with Andrea as an upcoming birthday gift for Derek.

I looked at several photographers in the Atlanta area and liked Andrea's style, especially the range of both weddding and non-wedding portraits she showed me. With my package she gave me a choice of engagement or bridal portraits and Michael and I went with the engagement since she said there would be plenty of time with our weddng schedule to take bridal photographs before the ceremomny. Everything came out just truely beautiful and more than I could have imagined. The beauty of the bridal photographs were just inspiring and her mix of styles were perfect. What was really, really incredible was the wedding album she put togehter and had made in Italy! My mom and friends had never seen anything so luxurious and beautiful. I was very happy and pleased with Andrea Mate.

I was searching photographers for about 2 months and ended up meeting with three and chose Andrea. My mom and I chose her because she had a blend of styles and I always wanted beautiful bridal portraits and also some sexy, but classy boudoir pictures as a surprise for my husband who is in the military and would be doing a tour overseas. I couldn't be happier with all my photos! My husband was overwhelmed with emotions when I gave him a small pocket sized album including the boudoir photos the night before he was leaving! Andrea is 5 stars!!!

We hired Andrea to shoot our wedding this past June and were truely pleased and very satisfied with her amazing wedding photos, energy level, and ability to get amazing shots! I was very nervous and freaked out on my wedding day, but you would never know it by looking at the photos! I also think it helped because originally we used Andrea for our engagement portraits and because of her fun and terrific personality - she put us at ease for those photos which also turned out amazing. I knew she would do the same for our wedding and she did! Her pricing was also very good as we had a fixed budget so there were no surprises (My Dad was very happy!!!) Use Andrea and you'll be happy!!!

When we looked for a wedding photographer we wanted someone with great photos and not too expensive. Andrea did an awesome job at our wedding and the price was great compared to the other wedding photographers we looked at. My husband and I were very happy with the photos and the job she did. I would recommend her to anyone for a wedding or portaits.

This was my second marriage and when looking for wedding photographers I didn't want to be worked up again and be surprised by all the add-ons and per photo price after the wedding. Andrea provided absolutely beautiful and stunning photos, excellent service and all at straightforward reasonable pricing - including all printing rights and quick turnaround. Andrea was wonderful to us, calming, helped my husband and I relax (I am shy and nervous and my husband hates taking photos). Bottom line - she shot beautiful photos of us, all of our 168 guests, and they are all so beautiful and memorable, we can't stop showing them! Andrea also went beyond duty when I mentioned to her my 83 year old grandmother is embarrassed by a large mole on her chin; so Andrea took it upon herself to remove the mole by retouching all the photos where my grandmother appeared at no charge and won my grandmother over as well! I highly recommend you consider Andrea if you want beautiful and memorable wedding photos at very reasonable rates.
