Love Love Love highly recommend
Andes was definitely a hidden gem. We interviewed 10 other photographer before we settled on him and he didn’t disappoint. Our engagement pictures were fun and different. He tailored our sites to match my outfits. On the wedding day, he made it super fun for the entire bridal party so nobody felt tired despite a long day of prepping. Our special moments were captured with such care and beauty. Somehow he made our small condo area feel so spacious! Would highly recommend!Sent on 03/10/2019

Amazing engagement Shoot
We met Andes at a wedding show in Toronto and we loved his work. He did our engagement shoot and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. Andes was very friendly and upbeat. He took us to several different locations to shoot and made us feel completely comfortable. We received our photos very shortly after the shoot and they are absolutely amazing. I would recommend anyone who is looking for stellar photos to book with Andes. These photos will be treasured for the rest of our lives.Sent on 14/06/2019

An artist behind the camera
I do believe that a photographer is more than a camera. A photographer is an artist that composes photos based on the moment. I think that Andes excels at capturing the best moments and giving them an artistic touch.
Our wedding was in mid October and the day was gray. I was a little concern about the pics, but it turned out that Andes took into consideration this gray day and composed amazing pictures. He brought colors into our wedding and photos!
On top of that Andes directs how to take the picture, so you really do not need to be worried about how to pose for the photos.
All in all, we loved our wedding photos!Sent on 02/02/2019

Professional and Personal!
Andes was very professional from the time we first met, till even now! He showed us all the packages he provided, and gave us recommendations when we didn't have a clue what we wanted, yet was flexible to work with things that we want. I'm not a guy that likes to take photos a lot, but Andes made it feel very comfortable to take photos, as if he wasn't there, even in the intimate shots. A true natural and a has very good eye for the style of photos we were looking for. Highly recommended!Sent on 22/01/2019

Michelin Star Photographer!
Most of us all love food, and we've all heard of Michelin star chefs, right? The criteria is quite strict, but at least some of the well-known qualifying characteristics include the chef having a unique sense of creativity, experience and recognition in their line of work by peers and critics, good techniques through mastery, high quality results and meticulousness to ensure the dining experience is exceptional.
Andes meets all of the above in equivalency in photography and thus he is a Michelin star photographer in my books. My husband and I decided on the engagement and wedding photography package and we couldn’t be happier! Some examples of the above were demonstrated below.
For the engagement shoot, he was so flexible with the locations and in our initial meeting asked what type we liked; for example, nature, urban city, small town ‘feel’, and more. My husband liked urban city and I liked nature, so we were able to compromise and take our beloved fur baby (dog) with us and did some shots in the downtown core near CN Tower and headed to Centre Island as well on a very hot, sweltering summer day and two outfit changes.
Andes never complained once including the fact that he had to re-park his car near the ferry dock nor stopped snapping photos and even extended our shooting time because we were having such a fun time. Some of the shots he was asking us to do interesting poses and it was strange to us because we are not models by profession LOL and some people looked at us funny…however, trust him because I was impressed how artistic all of the shots turned out when they came back and I knew we picked the right photographer!
For our wedding, it was a super early start in the morning (4:00am) as we had to complete the Chinese door games and the ceremony was in the conservatory at Casa Loma around 10:00am. Andes arrived on time at 6:30am (just a bit earlier) when the make-up artist was finishing up at my parent’s house as discussed and shot artistic shots of everything throughout the day including: ‘getting ready’ shots of my girls and I, door games with my husband and the bridal party, tea ceremony with the parents, beautiful wide-angle shots of the ceremony set-up and aisle walk, nice close-ups of my husband and I at the altar, family and friend shots, fun but elegant shots with the bridal party (we didn’t want serious) around the castle, capturing the priceless expressions of everyone during the reception and dance at a Chinese restaurant.
It was notable that despite the fact that the wedding reception was held in a small room meant for 60 people to fit comfortably, last minute my wedding blew up to 95 people in the SAME small room, Andes made the angles work beautifully still (including the first dance photo that truly looked magical - it was extra special because it Beauty and the Beast themed!).
The photos did come back later than I hoped (4-6 months) but just like really amazing food made from scratch – it takes time. It is worth the wait because he has won numerous photography awards for a reason!
Andes is very accommodating, gets to know his clients, on time (usually already there first) to his meetings, professional, prepared and he is very responsive (usually replies within the day) for any questions or follow-ups you may have and you won’t be disappointed.
I communicated with Andes initially through e-mail on his website, then later on Facebook messenger and occasionally Instagram.
If you have an idea or would like to request specific shots, he’s always open and without a doubt he’ll try his best to make it happen!

Andes is a must have!! :)
Jeremy and I had our wedding on April 28, 2018. My friend recommended me to Andes and after we saw his portfolio, we fell in love with his pictures and immediately knew we wanted Andes to be part of the day. He is very creative, has a great eye and camera skills to capture the moment. His use of natural lighting was also what we fell in love with. We are not used to taking pictures and felt really awkward posing, but Andes was able to make us feel comfortable and captured the moments perfectly. He made sure we have the traditional must have shots but always incorporated our own personalities in them which made them so much more personal and different from everyone else. Even though we didn't have the best weather on the wedding day, but I have no doubt Andes will turn them into great pictures!Sent on 04/05/2018

Wonderful photography service from start to happily ever after!
Andes is both professional and personal, making my husband and I feel very comfortable and understood. Andes has great ideas and recommendations and listens and caters to our needs as well. Even when my husband and I are busy with life, he follows up with us and even goes out of his way to drop off the USB and photo box! We would definitely recommend Andes to anyone who is looking to create and capture memories of their love story, from engagement to wedding festivities to happily ever after! We can't wait to ask Andes to take our family photos in the future!Sent on 19/03/2019

Andes Lo is an amazing photographer! He is professional, talented, creative and very patient!! Throughout the entire process; from initial contact to getting our wedding album, he has been incredible. He was always there to answer our questions and made sure that we were comfortable during our engagement and wedding shots. He was able to capture our most intimate moments, yet capture us at our goofiest. His photos told our story. The photos are BEAUTIFUL and his attention to detail is on another level. My husband and I highly recommend Andes for any special occasion.Sent on 29/08/2018

Andes was the first photographer who came to my mind when I got engaged. We knew we wanted to hire him for our engagement and wedding photos. We were always impressed with his amazing work -- dramatic and soft. He's funny, super friendly and willing to provide suggestions based on his professional experience. We all had a great time on our wedding day!Sent on 14/09/2017
