Andrew and his team truly define the term 'Pro Photographer'.
We're an event management company that produce new vehicle launches and media drive events throughout North America. Over the past four years Andrew has worked with us on numerous events as our staff photographer. He not only has this incredible talent to snap photos that speak to our client needs, but he and his team are a real pleasure to work with. With so many people professing to be great photographers, that usually turn out to be nothing more than people with fancy cameras and a slick website, it gives me a great deal of pleasure to endorse Andrew and his team as the real deal. We never think twice about partnering with him.
For the past three years, Bowes Media and Formula Photographic have been the media partner for the Canadian Rally Championship. As such, we've hired Andrew Snucins as lead event photographer on many occasions. The nature of our events require a photographer to provide top level photography that depicts the excitement and speed of the event as well as capturing the human side of the sport. Our team is tight and nimble. We expect the same from our photographer, and that is where Andrews strengths truly come into play. We receive photography through the event for use on social media, and then receive a full gallery a few hours after the event's completion. His professionalism assures us that on any given day, we'll get the photography we need with little or no support on our part. That is why we've hired him in the past and that is why we will continue to hire him in the future.
Almost from its inception, Andrew Snucins has been the sole person responsible for Classic Car Adventures' image. Andrews photographs of our events are the marketing background of our entire company, through his images prospective entrants get a feel for the type of event they'll experience; the roads, the cars, and the people. The photographs he's captured have become so much more than promotional material, our clients purchase photos of our events to hang in the their homes as art. Perhaps most interesting, we've never given Andrew any direction as to the types of images to capture. Instead, Andrew sat down with us over coffee on the first year and asked us about the company, the people and the story of how we came to be. From there, he's created a visual representation of what we do without any input, and we honestly couldn't have improved upon it if we tried. Andrew's images are as much a part of Classic Car Adventures, as we feel he is to the company ... simply inseparable.
Working with Andrew Snucins at the Kamloops 2011 Western Canada Summer Games was a fabulous experience! He stepped into the challenging role of Photography Chair with such ease and comfort, organizing the many photographers needed to document all 19 sports over 2 weeks of the Games. This was no small feat!
But on top of that, the quality of images the Games received from Andrew were top notch. He has such a talent for not just producing an image or taking a photo, but capturing the emotion and essence of the moment. In sport this is essential because everything happens so fast. If you miss it its gone!
I had the opportunity to work with Andrew on a photo shoot with one of Kamloops great athletes, cyclist Catharine Pendrel. Everything about the shoot was working against us. the time of day, the time of year, the light and the weather. But Andrew wasn't fazed. Even when it started sleeting he was able to capture exactly the right photos that we needed.
I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew. He is professional, fun and a real gentleman working to make sure he produces exactly what his clients wants. Thank you Andrew and I hope I have the opportunity to work with you again in the near future!
Looking through Andrews body of work, we immediately recognized his talent and knew our wedding photos would be stunning (they are!!). Having now worked with Andrew, we recognize and appreciate that his talents go far beyond just taking photos. We cannot stress enough his professionalism and talents for putting ourselves, our wedding party, and our guests at ease. Andrew made the often-awkward process of being photographed easy and fun and is wonderful with time management, meaning that not once on our wedding day did we have to worry about staying on schedule or missing a crucial photo. He is incredibly easy to communicate with and always worked to make sure the unique feeling and style of our wedding shone through in every photo. In addition, he was always there to lend a hand - whether it means moving chairs or tying ties. Working with Andrew was a complete pleasure!
After our engagement, Andrew was the first photographer that my now wife Kiara and I had spoken with. His reputation combined with his shooting experience made him the obvious choice to capture our special day. Together we chose a location for engagement photos and Andrew travelled all the way from Kamloops to Lake Louise to shoot our engagement in the amazing Rocky Mountains. Andrew's sense of humour combined with his professionalism made our day incredible. During the wedding day, Andrew and his team made themselves one with the wedding party, capturing every little moment throughout the morning and making sure no detail was spared. Photographs are such an important part of a wedding day and we knew we could put our trust in Andrew to put together the most amazing album for us. We were blown away with the final results and we could not have asked for a better experience with Andrew and his team.
Andrew Snucins has been the exclusive photographer of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack for the last seven seasons. He has been there to take shots of all the highs and lows of our teams on the ice, the baseball diamond, soccer pitch along with the volleyball and basketball courts. His work is unparallalled among sports photographers. We are the envy of Canadian University Sport to have someone of his talent working for us. Not only is he at every one of our athletic events but also shoots head and team shots (traditional and nontraditional), has been involved in our marketing shoots but also our special gala events like our athletic awards banquet and fund raising breakfasts. Andrew goes beyond the average photographer to get the great shots. In regards to the formal shoots, he goes out of his way to make the subject feel at ease. If you are looking to hire a photographer, Andrew should be first on your list.
Andrew was the first person we booked when we got engaged. We were familiar with his work and excited to have him as part of our wedding.
Andrew was everything we wanted in a photographer leading up to and during our wedding day. He was accommodating, professional, hilarious, and detailed in everything he did.
When it came to the Wedding Day, Andrew was like another part of the wedding party. He was a terrific wine holder and a formidable driver of a golf cart. We had a terrific time during the wedding party photo shoot because of Andrew's easy going and timeline keeping attitude.
At the reception, Andrew captured all the moments we were looking for and went above and beyond to accommodate us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Andrew and would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
Andrew, we would like to thank you your team for working so hard to capture such beautiful and vivid memories of our wedding day. It truly was the best 'wedding' decision that we made!We knew we would love working with you from the moment we met and you exceeded our expectations. We really appreciated your laid back style and creative perspective. It put us at ease from the get-go, helping us feel comfortable in from of the camera which made the experience so smooth, natural and fun! For us, having great pictures was one of the most important elements of the wedding. In addition to the amazing photos, Andrew walked us through the process and was so helpful in planning the shots that were the most important to us. Andrew went above and beyond to ensure that we got all the photographs we were hoping for to tell the story of our wedding from start to finish. It is evident from the results that he really understood what we envisioned making this day come to life in photos. We were thrilled with the range of coverage which included beautiful detail shots, portraits, special requests and moments that were unscripted and spontaneous. Our family and friends also commented on how fun it was to work with you and your team. You are incredibly talented and your photos are simply stunning. We feel energized by your passion for photography and words cannot express our gratitude. Photography aside, we would like to thank you for being such wonderful company, it felt like we were hanging out with great friends making the day all the more enjoyable. It would be our pleasure to refer you to all of our family and friends and we hope that more photo sessions with Andrew Snucins Photography will be in our near future!
Photography is a business that has definite lasting results. We hire a photographer to capture moments that we want to remember forever. We have to put our trust into complete strangers to, not only provide a quality product, but also to capture our most important moments and deliver them to us in a fair and timely manner. To those that are looking for an excellent and reliable photographer, I can give no better recommendation than Andrew Snucins Photography.Recently, my now-wife and I were planning our wedding and my very wise partner talked me into hiring a photographer. She reasoned with me that these photos would be shared with generations of people and that these photos may very well be the most important photos of our lives - how could I argue?She did the leg work and found Andrew. I was sceptical at first until she showed me some of his pictures. Andrew has a talent that is unmatched by his peers and it was immediately apperant in his work - this was a man I felt comfortable had the capability to shoot our wedding.After meeting Andrew, the rest of my concerns flew out the window and I began to get excited. He told us that this was our day and he would be there for as long as we needed him at no extra charge. Our party went on until 5:00am and he and his team were some of the last people to leave. He also had us do an engagement photo shoot so we could see how his talent translated into perfectly captured moments for us. Our engagement photos were amazing.I think that the prevailing quality that I respect about Andrew and his team was their work ethic. They not only took photos, but they also did whatever was needed of them - be it moving chairs or helping to choreograph a terrible garter dance. They fully understood how important our day was to us and our family and they did everything in their power to make it fantastic. They showed up early and they left late; they scouted locations for photos and they did whatever we asked.The photos of the day were breathtaking. Many people have complimented them and told us that we look like we belong in a wedding magazine. He not only provided us with the digital copies, but he went above and beyond by providing us with a plethora of other things that made our wedding photo delivery a great experience. He went even further when I suggested that we do a CGI / Photoshopped photo and spent hours figuring it out for us. Not once did he ask for more money.Andrew Snucins Photography is the perfect choice for any event that you want to capture forever. He is fair, talented, hard-working, and an excellent human being. In my opinion, he is the only choice for photography.
When we first got engaged there was no question as to who we would hire to photograph our wedding.And although we already knew of Andrew's amazing talent and exceptional eye for photography, we could not have anticipated just how much his presence, professionalism and experience would play such an important role in one of the biggest and happiest days of our lives.Andrew and Chris were there for us every step of the way, not only to capture our memories, but in whatever way they could help to make sure that things flowed smoothly for us throughout the day. From tracking down flowers to re-fastening boutonnieres, you name it and they were there.We could not be happier with our photos and are ever thankful that we have such beautiful images to reminisce over and look back on all the incredible memories that were created that day.
We were married this past September on the shore of Shuswap Lake, British Columbia. There were a few elements that made our day perfect and distinctive: our family and friends, the location, the weather and our photographer, Andrew Snucins.
During the day Andrew was enormously personable, flexible and managed to capture so many memorable pieces of the day. Andrews ability to mix formal and journalistic style photos provided us with variety, as well as added uniqueness to every shot. At each shot location Andrew was able to use his technique to transform our surroundings into a creative palette.Andrew- Thank you for capturing these exquisite moments. We have so many timeless photographs to look back upon in recollection of our day.
We chose Andrew as our photographer because of the excellent "word of mouth" reviews that we received from friends. We were already aware of his abilities because of his website, but on the day of our wedding and even the night before, he not only surpassed our expectations but stood by me all day to ensure that I wasn't becoming stressed or overwhelmed. Our family and friends could not help but mention he and his partner's subtle strength of moving about our ceremony, while commenting on his professionalism.
When we received our blog photos and album collection, it more than exceeded or expectations. We love our photos and the photographers that helped to make our weekend on Pender perfect.
Thank you Andrew & Chris
We had the good fortune to hire Andrew as the photographer for our wedding in August.Both Andrew and his assistant were an absolute pleasure to work with they spent the entire day with our group, and were there to capture every moment. Andrew made everyone feel comfortable and was a lot of fun. The photobooth was a definite hit, and having the photographer in the room meant a more personalized touch for all the guests that ventured in to have their photos taken. We had a great day with the two of them and love the pictures. Andrew has a great attention to detail and an artistic eye. We would not hesitate to recommend Andrew to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is fun to work with and has the ability to put everyone at ease.
It's been almost a year since my wife amber and I have been married but feels like it was just yesterday. Every time we reflect on our day, we are drawn to our photo album to relive the moments.Andrew and his team captured the feel what we had envisioned our wedding to be. The professionalism and artistic creativity that was brought forth was refreshing after going through the search for a photographer. We knew we wanted a photographer that was more than someone with a nice camera. Someone with talent, a natural eye and personality that would mesh with us and our robust wedding party.Andrew kept us at ease with his patience and calm approach. I cannot emphasize enough how impressed we were and how much talent that was brought to the table. For us, the photographs were one of, if not the most important aspect of the wedding details and we know we made the right decision working with Andrew and his team. Not only are we ecstatic with the results, he will always be a friend of ours!
We had the pleasure of meeting Andrew after he came highly recommended by a friend. Andrew went above and beyond exceeding our expectations of a photographer with his professionalism and sense of humor. With his ability to coordinate and organize our many guests, we were able to achieve taking the long list of my must have photos in a short time at the church. For me the photos were one of the most important parts of our wedding, Andrew was able to calm my nerves from the beginning and we always had confidence in his ability to fulfill our desire for unique, creative journalistic photos with a mix of traditional ones as well.
For that, we wanted to thank you so much for your amazing ability to capture the essence of our wedding day in such an enchanting way. We constantly get complements on how natural and creative our photos look. It was a joy to have you as our photographer and look forward to having you capture future special moments.
Photography was one of the most important aspects of our wedding for us, so when it came to hiring a photographer we knew it had to be Andrew! He will probably always remember me as the bride who hired him before the groom had actually proposed.
Our wedding was quite a challenge for Andrew and his team! From a pre-wedding helicopter photo shoot, to a venue with no power and only accessible by boat or 4x4, to the groomsmen of the apocalypse, Andrew and his team handled it all wonderfully and professionally.
Not only did Andrew provide us with amazing photos of our special day, he also provided much needed advice on setting up the venue to get the best possible photos, as well as a little rehabilitation assistance for the groom.
When people ask me what was the best investment for your wedding? My answer is always Andrew Snucins Photography.
A big thank you to the Andrew Snucins Team, our wedding would not have been as amazing without you.
- Greg and Aimee Galliazzo
Andrew has proven himself as a true professional behind the lens of his camera. He has provided WRS with exceptional quality photography; always capturing key moments and telling a detailed story of the events happenings. His punctuality, thoroughness, and determination to provide the highest quality results puts him far above his competition. A definite hire for any project requiring a high level of professional creativity with a camera.
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Andrew at my daughter's wedding which was not only a destination wedding away from all of our homes which required travel and organization, but a wedding weekend with multiple events that Andrew had promised to be on site for...and he was there for every single moment! He was reliable and professional, yet creative and spontaneous, a perfect mix for such a special occasion. His attention to detail, outstanding! His technique and artistic hand resulted in photographs that were interesting, creative, and beautiful! Andrew goes above and beyond, is passionate and caring. He captured each personality at their best, including the Bride and Grooms chocolate lab who was of course, included. He captured all the special moments which will preserve the day for not only the happy Bride and Groom, but the entire family.Thank you so much Andrew, from the mother of the bride!
Both my wife and I sought to bring someone into the wedding that could adapt readily to a challenging environment and work across significant language and cultural barriers. Having seen Andrews travel and sports work and knowing his cultural sensitivities, we decided to employ him over the weekend as our wedding photographer.
Andrew demonstrated his commitment to the project and worked with great effort throughout the afternoon and evening, delicately manoeuvring himself throughout, capturing the moments of our wedding as they happened. What we were given was an impressive range of shots that captured the ambience, location and feeling of the wedding in perfect harmony. Andrews ability to expertly manipulate the environment created some beautiful shots which we shall cherish forever. Thank You Andrew!!
We asked Andrew to take on the role of photography chair on the board of directors for the 2011 Western Canada Summer Games. Andrew coordinated a team of over 25 professional and amateur photographers for the 10 days of the games. Working with each sport closely, Andrew found ways to get great shots on the edge of the field of play. he successfully managed a photography program for the games working closely with games administration in a collaborative and positive manner. Andrew not only met our goals, he surpassed them.I can highly recommend Andrew as the official photographer for any large sports event and would be happy to share our positive experienced at any time.
When we first met Andrew, Lois and I, especially myself, stressed that we did not want photography to dictate our wedding day. Andrew executed this task perfectly, managing to get excellent photos of us, the guests and the service without being intrusive. He captured many spontaneous moments that would likely have been lost had the wedding party and guests been posing for one staged image after another. He listened to what we wanted and implemented it perfectly by capturing the ceremony and reception as the events evolved rather than by directing them. That professionalism was extremely important to us and we'd like to thank Andrew and his team for implementing our wishes and for capturing some of the best and most spontaneous images that we will cherish forever. Thank you again!!
I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. He is extremely professional, personable, creative and efficient. When I saw Andrew's photos I fell in love with them and was amazed how wonderful they turned out. Thank you Andrew for making my wedding photos a hit!
I wanted a few engagement photos done and of course my expectations were exceeded again by our photographer Andrew Snucins.Andrew had a vast location to work with and came out with captivating photos. He was efficient, ( which my fiancee loved) personable, creative and enthusiastic about his work.
Andrew also listened respectfully and professionally to any ideas that Danny and I had to share.His artistry is perfection and the photos he took will be with us forever.Thank you Andrew.
Andrew is an excellent photographer and we will continue to work with him again and again!!Having just met Andrew that week, he put us at ease and captured our personalities.He has an easy-going nature that makes the photo session fly by and makes you feel comfortable.His creativity and ability to use the environment made our pictures turn out spectacularly!We highly recommend Andrew to anyone considering a professional photographer.
Since I am a freestyle skier and its the beginning of the ski season I thought I would start the season with a bang by having a photoshoot of my friends and I.Knowing Andrew's past work from local venues here in Kamloops and Car magazines, I knew I could trust him to get some super sweet shots of us. So we spent only two hours in the terrain park at Sunpeaks Resort and was amazed at the shots Andrew had gotten of me and my friends.During the shoot he did his own thing and the results were awesome. No questions asked, I am definitely going to hire Andrew many more times over the season. Thanks again Andrew!
