Your Photographic Biographer
Hey! My name is Andrew Cunningham, and I want to be your photographic biographer. As such, my main purpose is to depict the unique beauty and emotion of the couple’s connection. When not doing film and photography, I also enjoy art, music, thrifting, hiking, and hanging out with my sweetheart, Hannah.
I’ve had a passion for visual creation since getting my first camera in grade school.
For several years, I was sure I wanted to become a film director. My family, teachers, and friends saw my video shorts and artistic photography, and encouraged me to make some money with it. So I entered contests, buying better gear with the prize money. As my work improved, I did more photo shoots and began shooting weddings. I was always talking about talking about “visual storytelling” back then, and that hasn’t really changed. Five years and dozens of weddings later, I have found that creative, visual storytelling is not just for Hollywood. In fact, the more I hear the unique beauty of each couple’s story, the more passionate I am to create a visual depiction of their love.
I got my first camera in elementary school. And for about 3 months, I was constantly taking photos and recording everything around me. That’s because I was always passionate about one thing at a time. Legos, skateboarding, drawing, computer nerd stuff, acting, film-making, and guitar—they each had their exciting turn for my attention. But what has kept coming back is this excitement for visual creation.
Throughout middle school, I was sure I wanted to become a film director. I made video shorts and artistic photography, and my family, teachers, and friends encouraged me along that path. I was always talking about “visual storytelling” in film. So when I was 15 and began shooting weddings, I kept hearing these warnings that doing so would limit my creativity. But after four years and dozens of weddings, I find that creative, visual storytelling is not just for Hollywood. In fact, the more I hear the unique beauty of each couple’s story, the more passionate I am to create a visual depiction of their love.
Hey! My name is Andrew Cunningham, your friendly neighborhood enthusiastic enneagram type three nerd who loves cameras, chick-fil-a, guitar, hiking, and enormous rock formations. I am a photographer whose main purpose is to capture the connection between you and your partner and the emotions within. Your love is a beautiful thing and I showcase it via my camera.
