“Kaori was a fantastic photographer who captured all the beautiful moments of our wedding! She also did a pre- wedding photo shoot which not only gave us lovely photos but also gave us an opportunity to get to know her prior to the wedding. We feel so lucky to have had her as our photographer as we will have the amazing photos to remind us of our special day!”

“From start to finish, Kaori was so personable. She really took into account our personalities and our wish to have a mixture of contemporary and reportage style photography. We really felt that she captured the romance and also the spirit of fun at our wedding. And she is so lovely that lots of our guests commented on how nice our photographer was! She made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease and the shots are beautiful! We can't recommend her enough.”

“We are so pleased with our beautiful wedding photos. Kaori really captured the essence of the day. Her style feels very intimate but not encroaching - very elegant and dream like. We cannot praise her professionalism enough - she travelled far to photograph our wedding and was still very energetic and enthusiastic. Her friendly personality and easy going nature put us and our guests at ease and was a pleasure to have her be a part of our special day. Thank you so much Kaori for giving us wonderful memories.”

“The greatest day of our lives was a truly unforgettable day but when we started to plan we didn’t imagine how many decisions needed to be made to make it just so. We desperately wanted a photographer who wouldn’t charge the earth and could take natural photos, and after receiving numerous quotes and looking at numerous websites we were really struggling to find the right person. Then we got in touch with Kaori Ando and we knew straight away Kaori would be able to capture our special day just the way we wanted.

Any worries we may have had were immediately squashed when we met Kaori at the wedding venue a few weeks before our big day, Kaori was such a calming influence, helping us make lots of decisions by listening to our every need. It goes without saying Kaori was a pleasure to work with and always so helpful and patient, responding promptly to all of our last minute questions. On the day Kaori was absolutely brilliant, and looking back at the photos we didn’t even realise she was there snapping away. We’ve been to a couple of weddings recently where the photographer has been very pushy, thankfully, Kaori was never like this and still managed to capture the moments and get those family photos you must not avoid.

It goes without saying that we would highly recommend Kaori to any couple planning a special day because she really does listen to what you want and is a pleasure to work with. We now don’t only have photos we will treasure forever but someone we can honestly call a friend, and somebody we would use again and again. Once again from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for everything you have done for us Kaori for making the photos wealthy of such a special day and doing justice to such a beautiful venue, Rivervale Barn.”

“Kaori has everything you want in a wedding photographer; she is extremely talented at her art and she is brilliant at making you feel comfortable. Most of the time, you hardly noticed she was there. Although she is excellent at posed shots, she excels with the natural photos which we thought were a true relection of how we felt on the day! We couldn’t be happier with the end results. Kaori is easy to get along with, listens to what you want and directs you without fuss or drama. We had an absolutely amazing day and Kaori definitely played a huge part in making our day so special!”

“Kaori became our special person from the first moment we met her on our wedding day. We could feel her strong passion and love for her work as a professional photographer, and it was such an enjoyable and even relaxing time for us to be photographed by her. She was very communicative with us and successfully captured the beauty of our emotions in such a natural way. So many splendid shots - they are the best gift for our wedding!”

Fia & Stuart - Kaori Ando Photography

“Kaori made us feel relaxed from the start with her positive and professional approach. Her suggestion of a pre wedding shoot for the guest book got us used to the camera and got many compliments from the guests, a great memento in itself. On the big day she proved to be a wonderful support with advice and suggestions and always with a smile on her face putting everyone at ease. She captured all the emotion of the day, with so many stunning shots for our wedding album to choose from. A great pleasure to have her record our day.”

Rei & Keiko - Kaori Ando Photography

“We had a lot of fun having our pictures taken by Kaori. We weren’t very sure at first what to do when she pointed her lens at us, but she was so natural with her direction, we soon got the hang of it.  As we were not used to at being photographed, the pre-wedding photo shoot was a great help to us to get used to the camera. We could choose the place where we wanted to be photographed and the day gave us some really fond memories of London. We really appreciated her artistic sense and she took really lovely photos of our wedding. We were very pleased we chose Kaori as our wedding photographer.”
