After the consultation, we'll send over a personalized quote with the retainer and contract. When all those details are smoothed out, your date is officially locked on our calendar.

STEP BY STEP
YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED
How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
Typically, couples book Andree Photo about 12 - 18 months before their wedding date. We encourage you to reach out as soon as possible for our full wedding availability, even if you’re planning on a shorter time frame. Reach out and let's talk!
Do you work with assistants or other photographers?
A second professional photographer is a subtle, yet amazing addition to our wedding day!
If your significant other is getting ready in a different location, the second photographer can easily capture the getting ready process with their attendees.
Also, during ceremony and reception, the Second photographer will capture a different vision than the Lead photographer, ensuring that your day is covered from a multitude of angles!
If there are multiple venues or events going on at the same time, having multiple photographers on hand re-assures the Couple that absolutely nothing of the flow of a wedding day gets missed!
For certain collections, Second Photographer services are included, or we would just bring a photographer's assistant.
How Would You Describe Your Photographic Style?
Andree Photo has a crisp, vibrant, colorful, documentary style of wedding photography. We mainly photograph candidly to capture the true feeling of your wedding day, though we will also spend time prompting and directing our couples for more dramatic end results. We love and use natural lighting, along with additional artificial lighting for extra sparkle!
Do You Photograph Micro Weddings And Elopements?
My team and I adore micro-weddings and elopements! Due to increased demand of Saturday and Sunday weddings, there is an eight hour minimum for booking a weekend event with Andree Photo (Saturday or Sunday). If your intimate wedding is on a weekend less than two weeks away and we still have the date available, we are happy to photograph it. Just reach out and ask!
How Do We Book You For Our Wedding?
Start by filling out the contact form with details about the wedding/event date and location! We’ll follow up with our collections and schedule a time for a phone or video consultation. You'll have the chance to ask questions and we'll get to know you and your partner a bit more! To secure the date, we will send a quote and contract, plus invoice for a 25% retainer. Once both those are completed, we're in business, baby!
How Long Will It Take To See Our Photos?
Turnaround times vary by season. Because we apply artisan edits and believe in exquisite over ultra-fast, you’ll typically be able to view images online about 8-12 weeks after your wedding. A few previews may be offered, time and season permitting. Printed products included in your booked collection will depend on album and wall art design choices and print lab delivery. All products and your USB drive will be delivered in person or via mail at the same time. All purchased products must be redeemed within a year of the event.
What Kind Of Wedding Albums Do You Offer?
We adore seeing your beautiful images come to life, and we have lots of gorgeous album options. Albums are included in two of our all inclusive wedding day collections. Our wedding albums and books are flush mount, lay-flat style. Albums can be ordered leather or linen bound, printed on photographic archival paper. Books are press printed, with leather/linen covers. Artisan designed covers and storage boxes are available as add-ons.
What Do Your Collections Generally Include?
All wedding collections include delivery of high-res artisan edited digital files with a personal use print release. Available add-ons are wedding albums, gift photo prints, save the date and thank you cards, gallery wraps, acrylic and metal prints, heirloom glass boxes and more. Please inquire for more details or challenge us to make something new.
What Are Your Travel Fees?
We request travel fees for locations more than 2 hours or 150 miles outside of Mobile, AL. This way we can commit to spending the day and evening with you and not worry about having to drive long distances late at night. Depending on the location of your event, travel/lodging is generally no more than $350 for the Alabama area. For an accurate estimate for your national or destination wedding location, please request details directly at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Do You Offer Engagement or Couples' Sessions?
Absolutely! An engagement or couples' session is a chance to get used to being photographed with your partner, as well as working with your photographer. We recommend meaningful locations like an urban area, a beautiful park where you take your pup for a walk, the beach or even the top of a mountain (always up for an adventure!). Some of our collections have these sessions included, or they may be added a la carte.
WHEN YOU CHOOSE ANDREE PHOTO, YOU CHOOSE TOP QUALITY FINISHED PRODUCTS, LOTS OF LAUGHTER AND THE GUARANTEE YOU'LL LOVE THE EXPERIENCE!
Laura has the sweetest personality and a true gift with photography. She takes the time to get to know her clients and it really shows through her work! I loved sitting down with her over a cup of coffee and going through my wedding Pinterest board, choosing my favorite pictures after a shoot, picking the cover for our wedding album, and every little detail! She lets the clients be as involved as they want to be with the artistic process which I really appreciated! We had a blast during every photoshoot session and we have some sweet memories of how she made us laugh. We couldn’t be happier with the way our engagement, bridal and wedding pictures turned out! We will treasure them forever! Thank you Laura
She was perfect!!! Not in my face or bothersome while taking photos. We wanted completely photojournalistic and fully candid coverage and that is what Laura offered. She’s very creative, organized, works well with your needs. My husband and I were very impressed with her professionalism and work. We would HIGHLY recommend her to others!!!
What an amazing day at Watson Farms. Dacia and Dylan tied the knot among so much love from our family and friends. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Shoutout to Laura Andreea Graham - what an amazing artist, photographer, person, friend. We love the MAGIC she created with the camera. Can you see the UGLY crying?!! I have cried oceans of tears over these pictures of my son and his beautiful bride. Laura is an absolute GENIUS and her photography shows it!
