We found Design Central via a Trip advisor recommendation, and contacted Andrew initially after viewing his website we liked his Portfolio. I was not happy to choose the franchise we were offered by the resort as I was looking for something different to capture our Wedding Day . Andrew was fantastic in responding to questions in the run up to our wedding, nothing was too much trouble and it was like meeting a friend when we arrived in Barbados for our Wedding. Our ceremony at Turtle Beach Resort was everything we wished for, the Photography and Video excellently taken and certainly not obtrusive. They became part of the wedding party and were delighted to include Andrew and his team into our celebrations. Even after arriving home Design Central have been excellent in keeping in touch and providing an extended service..

To everyone considering Andrew O’Dell, and his photography service, I say that as a brief customer of Andrew’s I was pleasantly surprised at the professionalism, depth of knowledge, and friendliness that the man brought to my event. I was in Barbados for a small wedding ceremony (mine), which required less than an hour’s photography work in total. Andrew was in touch with me regularly after I first contacted him, and I was especially pleased to see a decent rate for such a small job – this I say having compared Andrew to a dozen other photography services’ quotes in Barbados. Andrew gave us an impressively well-shot collection of high-quality photos, making me feel like I received a small film roll. It’s easy to make a great wedding photo album from his work.

I must say on meeting Mr Odell I was pleasantly surprised at his level of efficiency, work ethic and quality work he displays. Mr O’dell came highly recommended by numerous family and friends whom he also did various photographic works such as Weddings, Portraits and some commercial photography.

Andrew was hired to photograph our wedding on the 17th of
December 2010, Andrew’s expert eye and attention to detail surpassed our expectations and although we were
due to leave in 1 week he had our wedding album ready for us, which would normally take weeks by other local
photographers took less than a week to receive in our hands in time for our flight back to Sheung Shui, Hong Kong.
In Closing, I highly recommend Andrew O’dell for any photographic works.

Thanks to all of you in this forum who recommended Andrew O’Dell for wedding photography. Your posts could not have been timelier as we were scrambling in mid-October for a good photographer for a wedding a week later.

I concur with all the positive things mentioned.

What I can add is that I have heard horror stories about photographers at destination weddings with hidden charges who hold back images of your special day unless you are willing to pay more. As mentioned elsewhere, with Andrew there are no worries.

The other issue with a destination wedding is that time is a loose concept. Andrew was the only person from the island who was not late (including the wedding planner and minister). Andrew ended up spending around an extra hour or so because of the delays (and he did not charge for this). His promptness continued after the wedding as well. Our pictures were loaded up to a website by the time our wedding dinner was finished and Andrew always replied quickly to our e-mails when we returned home.

The final wedding album was a very creative and special product.

Thank you Andrew for being a part of our special day.
