There’s always a risk when it comes to blowing your own trumpet… so I’ve asked our clients to do it for me. You can read some of their comments here.

Wow – thank you for being the best wedding photographer – everyone at the wedding loved you! You made us feel relaxed and made the experience so enjoyable. We loved the surprise slideshow at the evening reception. The photos looked incredible.
Angie Connelly, Puure Brides
From the day I met Andrew he’s turned my worst nightmare(having my photo taken) into something that is actually enjoyable. After taking my business portraits it just felt natural to ask Andrew to photograph my wedding nearly 3 years ago. The pictures were stunning and surpassed all of our expectations, they have become so important as we didnt film the day, so they are the only visual memories we have….. You have to trust the person who photographs the most important day of your life. Since then I have recommended many of my brides to Andrew with the peace of mind that they will get the great service I did.
Katy & Chris Leach
Thank you so much for the amazing work you did working on our Wedding photography. We never really appreciated the level of skill required to really excel at wedding photography but you truly opened our eyes by taking such breath taking pictures on our big day. For anyone considering whether or not to employ Andrews’s services as a wedding photographer, then please do not hesitate any longer and rest assured that the photographs of your big day will be beautifully managed by Andrew who clearly has an eye for the perfect angle, location and setting for your photos. Recently Katy and I went to a wedding in Southport and were shocked to see the gulf in class between you and their photographer who knew very little information about the couple, their families and seemed to leave everything to the last minute. You were remarkably meticulous in your preparation and in gathering information about locations to take photos in and we count ourselves as exceptionally lucky to have employed your services.
I can definitely say that we will never look for another photographer in the future and cannot recommend your services highly enough. Please feel free to forward on my mobile number to any couple seeking a direct reference about your work as I would be more than happy to do that.
Kindest regards, Chris and Katy Leach

When it came to our very special day we knew Andrew would be the photographer for us as we had already commissioned him to capture our son’s first year. When we first spoke with Andrew about our wedding photography, we explained our budget and that we did not want a typical wedding package. Instead we booked Andrew for the day and along side this we used Andrew’s gift voucher system so our guests could contribute towards our wedding album and statement framed photographs for our home.
Andrew was very accommodating and arranged all of this for us as well as liaising with our other key suppliers to ensure the day ran smoothly. Andrew also suggested a pre wedding shoot to prepare us for the big day, from this he created a unique signature board which guests signed on the day and Andrew had framed and glazed. We now have three beautiful keepsakes to remind us of our winter wedding day; our wedding album, signature board and statement frame. It’s true what they say, a picture does tell a thousand words.
Lifestyle Family Portraits
Paul and Charlotte Cliffe
Andrew is a breath of fresh air, as a family we have experienced numerous portrait photographers over the last decade but not one has found the route to getting the real photos of our family, until we met Andrew. Unlike other photographers Andrew understands that pressure on time and the need for that perfect photo shouldn’t be forced, he approaches his photography with a relaxed yet confident manner and understands that the great photos come when people are having fun!
There are no bright white studios with large glaring lights, he uses natural light and real surroundings and amazed us with the results. We now have a portfolio of family photos we will cherish for years to come and the quality mounts and frames turns a photo into a work of art. I would thoroughly recommend Andrew and his team to get the best out of any time and money invested with him- we have spent a lot of money with other companies over the years without ever getting value. Thankfully those times have passed and Andrew will be the first person we turn to for any family or business photography in the future.
Pam Case: I have never had a great photo of myself – until a recent family photo session with Andrew Collier. I was STUNNED by the results. Not only that but the whole family had fun as Andrew is so lovely to work with and put us all at our ease. I am so proud to display Andrew’s photos – they are amazing.
Marissa Hankinson: I first used Andrew to do a family portrait of my ever growing boys to try and capture them and the magical time in their life when they are still climbing trees and having fun. Andrew came to the house and made us all feel very relaxed, he then disappeared off into the garden and the boys were co-operative and most of all having lots of fun in their own environment which ended up producing fantastic images that I am proud to have on my wall – all of this would not have been possible without the creativeness and patience of Andrew – I would highly recommend him.
Karen Maloney: Had a great photo shoot with Andrew this week. I wasn’t sure what to expect but Andrew put us all at ease, was warm, friendly and professional. Many thanks Andrew.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you have done on the first three photography projects of my family and I, this included our wonderful bump to baby photos that you produced for us. We are extremely happy with the results both with the quality of the photography and the framing service you offer. Thank you for your advice with regards to the Christening books that you produced for us. We are sure that our friends and family will love them just as much as we do.
Prior to the bump photos we had a wonderful Sunday afternoon taking photos of my two girls which was never going to be an easy task with two teenage girls wanting different poses, changes of clothing and both had different ideas how to achieve that. Again the results were absolutely fabulous and now hanging proudly on my living room wall for me to admire every day.
The business portrait photos that you took at the same time will I am sure show to the world the image I would like to portray. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my friends and family and have done many times already, thank you very much your patience and your professionalism throughout these enjoyable photo sessions.
Sarah Lloyd, Marketing Manager, Menai Holiday Cottages Ltd. When we needed our business portraits updating, it was great to find a photographer who was flexible, efficient and put everyone at ease. More importantly, everyone was delighted with the results!
Wendy Heyes: Andrew is an absolute pleasure to work with. He has the ability to entice out the best from even the most reluctant “model”. Highly recommended, great fun, fab pics!
Paul Cliffe, Calibre Control International: Andrew is an excellent photographer, not just the quality of his photography but in how he made us all feel relaxed and captured the real ‘us’. He has for the first time given Calibre a face we can be proud of.
Alex & Helen Dale
Thanks for doing the shoot a couple of weeks ago. Helen and I were a little apprehensive having never ventured into the world of ‘having our portraits done’. It was just great. We really liked your enthusiasm and the whole shoot itself both inside and out, informal and formal was just a breeze and a whole lot of fun. You made the beautiful woman I married look just super fab. Amazingly you even made me look cool and an all round great guy. With a big thanks from myself and Helen.
Kim Hayton, Hayton Consultancy
Our business portraits are great and have received really positive comments. Highly recommended for use on the website in particular as it’s always good to see the faces of the business. Not only were we put at ease but we had fun during the shoot. Thanks Andrew and Josie for a great job.
Tim Hodges Business Portraits
The visit to Andrew Collier Photography was friendly and the photo shoot was a pleasant relaxing experience. The images were superb and helped my business develop further with new customers by raising the credibility of my new website. Thankyou Andrew and I have no hesitation recommending your services.

I am really thrilled with recent portrait images supplied for my networking sites and advertising releases. Andrew offers a relaxed and informal approach to Photogtaphy allowing him to really catch the moment. Your own choice of venue is encouraged although I chose Andrew’s special business portrait event at the Ramada Encore, Birchwood, Warrington.
Whether Corporate, PR, or a family portrait or occasion you are guaranteed the very best with ANDREW COLLIER PHOTOGRAPHY. I am certain both my family, friends and business colleagues will be in touch with Andrew in the future as many of them have very high standards
Thank you Andrew

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Andrew, for making my personal photo
session a surprisingly enjoyable experience. I had been looking forward to the event with about as much excitement as the time I had gone for my vasectomy.
As it turned out, the trepidation I was feeling was totally unfounded, Andrew and his team managed to not only put me at my ease from the outset, but to actually turn the event into an incredibly postive episode which resulted in some great pictures, and one in particular which is now used for my social networking profiles. What a difference it has made. Thanks again Andrew!
Helen Stott’s family portraits
A camera shy family wanting natural photographs would seem to be quite a challenge for a photographer, but not Andrew Collier. He quickly put us all at ease, and within a very short time convinced my 68 year old mother to lie on the patio, and considering she has bad knees and it was November, we were very impressed!
The photo shoot was great fun, there was lots of laughter and we were all delighted with the photographs; the challenge for us was then how to narrow our selection down to the ones we liked the best – there was so many to choose from! Andrew was on hand to give us objective guidance on frames, and even what size would be suitable for the wall. The finished article was beautiful and is a much admired piece of ‘art’ in Mum’s lounge.
Andrew Collier Photography – highly recommended!
Denis McAllister, Coras IT
Having come to the conclusion that I needed a decent portrait to use for my profile pictures on various websites and in any brochures I might have printed, I went to Andrew Collier Photography. I was very pleased with the results. The result from the session was three images all showing a slightly different but very positive version of myself.
Prior to that, being an amateur photographer, I had relied on self-portraits, or even cropped snapshots. The result was generally an over-serious look. Attending Andrew’s session was the first time I’d been photographed professionally since been taken as a child in my ‘Sunday best’ to a stuffy studio in Dublin. This was an altogether more enjoyable and fun experience, and well worth the money.
Anton Johnson, Johnson’s Hairdressing
When it came to deciding how to get the biggest impact from our app, fantastic photographs were crucial. My natural choice of photographer was Andrew Collier, he never disappoints! Our talented team of stylists look amazing in every shot he took. He made them feel relaxed and the atmosphere in the salons during his shoot was electric! A big thank you Andrew!
“What a miracle worker! As a camera shy individual who hides behind trees at weddings to avoid the photographer, he managed to relax me quickly and overcome my reticence very quickly. I now have a lovely set of business portraits which I am happy to show around. He was very efficient, professional and clearly loved his job and produced the finished portraits in days. I am very happy to recommend Andrew and his work.”
