Andrea Barrist Stern Photography

Clients' Comments

We had the pleasure of having Andrea capture the memories of the Bat Mitzvah of my daughter.  We praise her high level of professionalism, artistic talent and expertise.  She captured moments of tenderness and joy yet remained unobtrusive.  Her candid shots told a story of people interacting and celebrating.  Thank you Andrea for your patience, dedication, and obvious enthusiasm.  You were a pleasure to work with, quick to respond to all emails and phone calls and made sure all of the special moments were captured. For this reason and more, it was our pleasure to have you return two more times for the Bar Mitzvahs of my sons.  Every time we look at the pictures, the photos allow us to relive those special days.

Andrea captured our wedding day beautifully! Both the candid and posed shots were great. Andrea has the experience and creativity needed for special events. We strongly recommend her as a photographer, and an all-around wonderful person.

Working with Andrea for my children's mitzvahs was such a wonderful experience.  I can hardly wait to book her for our 3rd child's bar mitzvah!  Andrea had this amazing ability to make my children and family feel so at ease on the day of the big event.  She truly captured the essence of the day with beautiful photos that I will cherish a lifetime.  I cannot imagine having another event without her.  Thank you Andrea!

If you are looking for a photographer who knows how to capture "that moment" at your wedding without being obtrusive, Andrea would be that person and she will let no moment get lost on your special day.  When my husband and I look at her photographs we can almost smell the fall air they were taken in they are so fantastic.

Gretchen Scott Moore

Andrea did a great job photographing our daughter's bat mitzvah.  The formal pictures were done well, but what really impressed us was that she managed to really capture the spirit of the party with great candid shots without being intrusive (she didn't make herself the center of attention).  She listened to what we wanted, gave us good suggestions, and got us the pictures and album quickly.  We would definitely use her again!

Ron and Ellie Carleton

Our son's graduation from West Point presented us with an unique opportunity for a family portrait. We came to Andrea with the expectation that the occasion be marked in a "picture perfect" way. Each day we see how Andrea well exceeded our hopes and request and translated it into reality.

Andrea did a wonderful job photographing our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. She was completely professional and warm. She covered the entire event - both morning and evening proceedings - from start to finish. And the photos are beautiful, for a very fair price.

Rachelle Gura and Dr. Roger Green

Andrea Stern was first on a florist's list in Woodstock.  We were fortunate to engage her services for our 50th anniversary celebration with our entire family in Woodstock. She proved to be very professional and easy to work with. Thanks to her, we have beautiful pictures and discs of the occasion.

Stan and I were very pleased with the job Andrea did for our wedding. She captured everything beautifully: the service; the reception, including family and friends; and put together an album to remember our special event. Well worth the price she charged!

Pat Muller and Stanley Bryer

Andrea provided photography services for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. The photographs are fabulous! The collection of pictures truly captured the excitement, the love and the relationships that we as a family celebrated that day. Andrea was professional and attentive to our needs and wishes from start to finish. I could not have asked for anything more!

Wow! What can I say? I cannot thank you enough for being there to photograph my Bat Mitzvah weekend. You were everywhere at the party. I thought there were three of you. I hope that you at least had a few minutes to enjoy yourself.
