My name is Andrea Arostegui (pronounced a-roast-eh-ghee) and I live in sunny, South Florida, where we speak Spanglish on a daily basis and greet everyone with a hug or a kiss on the cheek. I have been shooting beautiful love stories since 2010 and with every wedding I document, I fall in love with what I do even more.
I started this business photographing most of my friends' weddings. While some photographers refuse to shoot their loved ones, the experience taught me how to treat my clients with the same love and respect I give my friends and make sure I'm capturing every emotion as it happens with excellence.
I live for the relationship-building experience I get to have with my couples and the friendships I have developed with them along the way. Tambien les puedo hablar en español ;-)
my cooking & handy-man skills, crying behind my camera at every wedding, my love for traveling, being an open book on Instagram, and my secret shame: mtv's the challenge.
YOU WILL WALK OUT WITH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS
It all started in First Grade... I walked up to the new girl in my class, and in one breath said "Hi, my name's Andrea, what's your name? Do you want to be my friend? I want to be your friend... Let's be best friends."
24 years laters and 1200 miles between us my best friend and I are still inseparable. You see, I didn't give her an option to be my friend, she was just going to be stuck with me forever.
I'm a firm believer that God doesn't make mistakes... He places people in your life or your path for a reason.
I should've known then, that I would always be a "people person" and that I would always cherish and value the relationships I'd build in life. My friends joke around that I know people wherever I go and that I should run for Mayor. I guess I've always liked making people feel like they've left a mark in my life, because they probably have, in one way or another.
Every bride I've met and every couple I've photographed has served a purpose in my life - to serve them by documenting one of the most important days of their lives and of the people they cherish the most.
