Hello, my name is Andrea

Thank you so much for taking a look at my portfolio and website, and just in case you are wondering about the person behind the lens I want to take a few minutes and tell you about myself and the reason why I am in love with wedding photography

A Little About me

 

 I am the creative here at Eastern Shore Weddings  by WindsweptPhotoDesign, and I came to be a working photographer the long way around, my dad loved photography and what I remember most fondly about my youth are the long walks in the forest with our dogs and my dad always having a camera in his hands.
When my dad retired from photography, I inherited his old Canon film cameras and all of his lenses. It was like a long lost friend showed up at my doorstep; instantly I was taken back to those forests of my youth, walking with my dad and taking pictures. 
For the first few years, I was completely obsessed with learning about the craft of photography and Photoshop. Seriously! I would wake up in the middle of the night thinking about F-stops, wide-angle lenses and all that stuff. As I got better and better, friends asked me to take pictures of their dogs and children. Then a friend asked me if I would mind shooting her wedding.  I was completely frazzled by the thought of it an my gut reaction was to say “thank you but no thank you.” However,  I don’t believe in letting fear control me, so I accepted the challenge and I was instantly in love. In love with the day, the joy, and the work. It was like wedding photography was meant for me… as if all my life had led me to this. It was so crazy, and to this day, I clearly remember how it made me feel. I kept thinking “I want to do this for the rest of my life.”
 So, here we are, 80+ weddings later, and I am still completely obsessed with wedding photography. On Wednesday, I am excited for the weekend to come, because I get to do what I love. What could be better than that?

Thank you for allowing me to ramble on and viewing my pages, I really appreciate it.

Please don’t ever hesitate to contact me, I love to talk about photography, dogs, and most importantly how we can be part of your wedding day team.

In gratitude,

Andrea
