It's been a little while since we did a vendor spotlight here on the KOWE blog and I've been meaning to show some love for one of the emerging young photographers in the Capital Region, so today I present Andrew Franciosa Studio!

For many of us in the Capital Region wedding biz Andrew is a familiar face. He's spent a few years at one of the larger wedding photography studios in the area honing his craft and capturing some incredible images. As part of our “five year anniversary” prep, I wanted to put the focus on an up and coming business to not only show my support for it, but to also bring awareness to a photographer that's just starting out in a very talented field of local photographers.

In the past, when there were fewer options for couples, finding the perfect photographer could be difficult. But now, with people like Andrew, I can recommend more photographers with total confidence that they'll capture a wedding, engagement, or other life event flawlessly. And although he hasn't been out on his own for very long, Andrew has an impressive resume–he's worked a lot of weddings and knows the ins and outs of a wedding day.Andrew Franciosa Katieo 0003And, as a planner, I really appreciate Andrew's attitude and approach when it comes to his clients. More than anything (and this is super important, especially for photographers) he wants to make sure that his clients are comfortable and want to work with him. He puts no pressure on potential clients (as it should be) to make a rash or rush decision. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. Honestly, I wish more couples would adopt this philosphy during the wedding planning process!

I can't recommend Andrew enough and we look forward to working with him in the future! Check out these gorgeous images from Andrew Franciosa Studio and be sure to wander over to his website and Facebook page, too!
