Hi, my name is Andre Thomas
And all of a sudden, I was a photographer…
I became a photographer in my earlier years of high school. I began buying many disposable cameras and bringing them to school to photograph my classmates. The best part then is the best part now: the reveal. I would go to Walgreen’s to get the pictures developed in doubles so that I could hand out the pictures and keep the other for my photo album. And I must say that anticipation and the look on their faces is what made me really love taking pictures of people. I still have those pictures to this day! This hobby stayed with me through my college years.
After college, I discovered that my pastor back home was a wedding photographer. He took my under his wing and groomed me into the wedding photographer I am today.
Why do I take pictures…?
What we don’t like about bad pictures is the same thing we don’t like about our memories. We don’t like when they are fuzzy, unclear, and when they show off our bad side. I want everyone to be able to look back on their pictures and see crystal clear happy memories. That is why I do what I do. The feeling you get when you see and touch an image of yourself, not only are remembering those good times with your neurons but you are now experiencing your memories like you never could without those photographs.
Covenant LX was born…
I started off photographing weddings under a different brand I then thought to myself “Brides deserve better.” You all need a photographer that is dedicated to the craft of photographing weddings.So I began thinking shape the business that you’re seeing now with a name that truly captures the value we hold so true…Covenant.
