Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Andrew Tawes has been a professional photographer for nearly 20 years.  While gaining experience and numerous awards including an Emmy as a photographer for the ABC affiliated television station in Norfolk Virginia, and now for WBOC in Salisbury Maryland, Andrew never gave up his love for capturing beautiful moments with his camera.  Not only does he specialize in fine art wedding photography, but also portraiture such as family photography and high school senior photography.

As a native of Crisfield, Andrew is excited to be back home on the Eastern Shore and he looks forward to providing unique, fun, and stress-free wedding and portrait photography to all of Delmarva.

His goal is to tell the story of your beautiful day through the lens of his camera without asking you to stop and pose at every turn.  Andrew loves capturing the touching and often unexpected moments that couples will cherish and be able to look back on for years and smile.  His photojournalistic style goes far beyond photographs of cutting the cake and exchanging vows, it's an editorial take on all the amazing details that make your wedding unique.

If you are looking for a photographer in the Salisbury area and all of Delmarva who is willing to think outside the box to bring you beautiful, one of a kind photographs that deserve not only to be on your mantel, but also look as if they could grace the pages of a magazine, please do not hesitate to contact Andrew.  He would love to be a part of your special day. 


Finding a photographer was probably the easiest part of wedding planning. Andrew was the photographer at my sister's wedding 3+ years ago... and he was so personable and had such an amazing product that he was hired for her in-laws wedding a few months later. So when it was my turn, he was the first person I called. Andrew is incredibly personable and so much fun to work with. When it was time to take our engagement pictures, he came all over town with us and put up with at least 5 outfit changes and 5+ different sites to change scenery. He is truly an artist! At the wedding, he's in so many places at one time to make sure he gets everything. And he still gets to party with the rest of us :)

Nick and I loved having you as our photographer. You are so great to work with, so talented. Thank you for making the trip to Annapolis and working so hard. It was extra-special having "Tawes" as my photog :)

Much love--Karen and Nick

Future Brides, Andrew Tawes deserves 5 stars across the board! My husband and I were married in June 2009 and Andrew went above and beyond the call of duty. Extremely friendly, FUN, flexible and not to mention, talented. His work speaks for itself! Our pictures are gorgeous and if he still offers the personalized album, you will not be disappointed. Spend the extra money and get it!


Andrew was amazing to work with. We were able to see him at a friends wedding prior to him shooting our wedding and engagement photos. He was flexible with both time and location. The quaility and quantity of pictures were amazing. With as many images as we received you would have thought he had a crew of photographers with him, but it was a one man show!!! The pictures were candid, not staged and we loved that. We got to see our friends and family truely enjoying themselves. Thanks, Andrew, for your amazing work. Now, when are you going to start Maternity pictures?!?!

We LOVED Andrew! What a great guy, and his photos (so far) seem great! We're still waiting for the bulk of them, and I'll update the review if they don't meet our expectations. He's a great photographer who truly doesn't get in the way. Every time I turned around, he was there on the periphery, capturing all the important moments of our day. He was flexible with timing, worked really hard ALL day, was great, courteous and kind to our guests, and made friends with everybody (especially the kids in the wedding!). We met for the first time the day of my bridal portraits, and he instantly put everyone at ease with his laid-back demeanor and calm professionalism. Despite some working challenges (rain, wading onto a river bank, watching raccoons watch us as we shot photos), his upbeat personality kept us all smiling. We had a great time doing portraits, family photos, and candids, and can't wait to see the rest of his work. Thanks, Andrew!


Having our wedding in the DC Metro area seemed to mean having expensive vendors so I looked elsewhere. I came across Andrew's work and it was incredible. His pictures captured moments verses having things staged. I wanted candid shots and he did just that. Andrew was accommodating to my schedule and needs. He customized a package that worked with my budget and we couldn't have been more pleased with him and his work. I felt 100% confident in him that one of the most important days of our lives would be captured beautifully. I recommend him to anyone I know getting married.


Andrew Tawes was amazing and easy to work with and the pictures where above and beyond what we expected. He knows how to really capture the moment and we will cherish these pictures forever!


I am so incredibly thrilled with the work Andrew Tawes did as our wedding photographer. Our pictures are absolutely amazing and better than I could have imagined. Andrew did an excellent job of capturing so many of the day's candid moments, as well as all of the "standard" wedding shots. Not only is the quality of Andrew's work really there, but he is extremely personable and fun to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. He is exceptionally talented and truly has a gift.


Andrew was a great photographer! He was punctual and responsive to all emails and questions. I highly recommend him!
