Hi, I’m Andy Stonier, aka Howling Basset, I’m a member of The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and have been a professional photographer for over 25 years: I started young!

I’ve become one of Kent’s leading wedding photographers, shooting over 1,100 weddings and covering different religious ceremonies and civil partnerships. This level of wedding experience means I’m calm, professional and unobtrusive, helping me to best capture the full story on your biggest day.

How would I describe my style? Not traditional, not cutting edge, just beautiful, simple and elegant photography. Timeless, but with individuality and style. I’ll capture your special day with a stylish blend of classic & candid wedding photography. Combining classic wedding photography with more natural portraits and candid shots, I create beautiful images that are full of character and style, whilst capturing all those special little moments as they unfold.

Friendly and relaxed my approach to weddings is professional and unfussy, I’ll do everything I can to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and avoid interfering too much in your special day. I pride myself in capturing making you look stunning, providing you with beautiful photos and memories to treasure.

Oh my goodness – we are just literally overwhelmed by Andy’s pictures! We’ve been looking through them and crying and laughing alternately – just SO many absolutely beautiful and stunning shots! Andy managed to encapsulate our special day so perfectly with his pictures- they just sum up the joy and emotion, and capture the spectacular grounds in the perfect Autumn weather. And the hilarious Dad dancing photos from the evening – just fab! We honestly couldn’t have wished for better. Andy was wonderful to have on board at our wedding – always discreet (half of the photos we hadn’t even realised he was taking!), extremely professional, warm and friendly, relaxed, and at pains to ensure we were relaxed too, very funny and hard working. Thank you – We couldn’t recommend Andy highly enough.

Hi Andy,
They. Are. FABULOUS!!!!!! Such an amazing record of our day, and we both really had the best time.
Thank you so much for everything you did for us on the day. It was great for me to have you and Katie (makeup lady) as calming influences while we were getting ready.
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Andy took our wedding photos at Aylesford Priory last year and its taken us this long to come up with the right words to just inform everyone how AMAZING this guy really is. Andy is truly one of the most hardworking, inviting, patient and talented photographers I have ever known. He kept everyone smiling and relaxed throughout the entire day and has captured the most amazing, memorable yet emotional shots of our day; when we remembered those who couldn’t be there to see us get married. He is so funny and so willing to try anything. Nothing is ever an issue and he has the patience of a saint! Andy you truly captured our day so beautifully and we feel very honoured to have been photographed by you. Your photography style is truly magical and breathtaking. We would HIGHLY without a doubt recommend Andy to anyone. He is the most down to earth photographer who is truly amazingly talented in capturing that special moment in your life. He will definitely capture that moment and do it justice. Thanks again Andy for everything, these photos we will cherish for a life time!!

We were lucky enough to have seen Andy at work as he had previously photographed our friend’s wedding. On their wedding day you just knew the photos would be perfect from seeing him in action, an absolute natural! When it came to choosing our photographer, we knew we didn’t have far to look. Of course our venue had their recommendations but they just seemed to lack something. It’s hard to describe but Andy’s work is just a level above the rest. Once booked for the wedding we decided to also have a family photo shoot after the arrival of our second child. Being in December this was done at our home. How he took such amazing photos in just our living room still bemuses me! On our wedding day Andy just blended in. Not only an excellent photographer, but a lovely guy. It was as if he was just one of the guests and slotted in. Nothing felt forced on the day. He just went about his business capturing some amazing photos. We do have one issue though. 8 weeks after the wedding and I’m still having debates with my wife as to what photos we want to get on canvases and display around the house. We received hundreds of photos from Andy and every single one is excellent. We just can’t pick our favorites as they are all too good. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Howling Basset Photography to anyone looking to have one of the most amazing days in their life captured in the best possible way. We are looking forward to booking our next family shoot as we know the photos will be amazing.

My new husband and I couldn’t recommend Andy enough!! From the moment Andy joined the bridal party for pre wedding shots to the moment he left he completely lightened the atmosphere and put everyone at ease. We received our photos back within 6 days and my word are they AMAZING!! Better than either of us could have hoped for, we’ve had so many compliments on the photos. I would give Andy 10 out of 10 for his professionalism and kind nature.

Andy was great! As someone who doesn’t like having my photo taken, I was nervous when picking our wedding photographer. I didn’t need to be because Andy made us feel completely at ease. I would highly recommend an engagement shoot beforehand too. Andy is friendly, funny and easy to speak to. We were also very impressed how quickly we received our photos after the big day.
