Rachel Stark-Cappelli, Owner/Designer Obscene Jeans
"I first worked with Andrea Hillebrand last year when we were thrilled to have her photograph our family. The results were breathtaking! With launching a new premium denim line just a few months ago we needed to organize our first photo shoot. Knowing that these pictures would be the first impact on our market both nationally and internationally, our decision was immediate to work with Andrea. Again, her work exceeded our expectations. The pictures were stunning and in turn, a key factor in our presentation to enter into two international trade shows as well as acquiring sales reps just by the photos alone. We look forward to having Andrea as our official photographer in any of our future projects."
Darla O'Brien , Owner, Designer Fitness
"Andrea has worked with me on several different projects over the years: each one was very different but very important for my business. The first assignment was for the grand opening of my business. Andrea succeeded in beautifully capturing some memorable moments that I'll never forget. The second effort was to shoot my portrait for my business card and for my promotional materials. The third was a major project where I needed specific photos for some instructional materials. In each instance Andrea has done a great job of taking my ideas and capturing them as digital media. She is extraordinarily talented, works to a budget, adheres to deadlines and is just plain enjoyable to work with. Andrea has captured hundreds of great shots of my clients for my website, social media, blogs and Powerpoint presentations. My job is to select a few dozen - it's a real challenge because there are so many wonderful images! Check them out! Andrea you're the BEST!"
Minda Fraser, Owner, Silverwind Herbals
"Andrea is ACES! I happened across her website while looking for photographers in the Sarasota area. Her gallery jumped out at me as I noticed her skillful attention to light and shape. I was thrilled that she agreed to be the photographer for my upcoming wedding and my fiance and I absolutely LOVE our engagement photos. -ALSO- Andrea took all the photos for my business website and it is fabulous. She really listened to me when I was describing the look and feel of how I wanted my products to be presented and she delivered! Truly professional, focused and so cool to work with. I have full faith that the wedding will be gorgeous and that she will capture this important day as beautifully as expected. I am so happy to have met Andrea and if you get the chance to work with her - I know you will be so glad you did!"
"Andrea Hillebrand is a true professional. She is highly knowledgeable on what's happening in the photographic world and she is passioinate about her work. Andrea is extremely organized and focuses on your expectations and she makes sure that you have the chance to explain that to her. We felt comfortable and relaxed throughout the shoots. Our results were fabulous and I would recommend her to everyone."
Ron Jones, LEED AP Architectural Programs Manager - Madico Window Films
"Andrea did a great job of capturing the look we needed for our project. The photos she took will be utilized on our corporate website for everyone to see, once our marketing department finalizes the article about the Ellis Building downtown Sarasota. Thanks Andrea, great work!"
Ruth Lando, Director of Communications, Community Foundation of Sarasota County
"The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has used Andrea Hillebrand to photograph employees in her studio and at our offices and to shoot portraits on location for our annual report. Not only is she great to work with, but her photos are always beautifully realized and finished. Andrea is the whole package: she puts her subjects at ease and then makes them look better than they could have anticipated. And she is always willing to "go the extra mile" to ensure customer satisfaction. We would recommend her highly."
Nora Nowicki, Wreathinc, Sarasota, FL
"They say a picture is worth a thousand words and Hillebrand's work speaks for itself. While Andrea's photographs demonstrate her obvious talents I would also like to applaud her professionalism and her ability create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I had so much fun during our photo shoot that I look forward to our next opportunity to work together."
"Andrea's work exudes true talent and passion. She has photographed my family annually for the past 14 years, and I'm blessed with beautiful documentation of my children's progression from infancy to teens. I feel very fortunate to have discovered Andrea when I became a new mother and could not be happier with the sequence of photos displayed in our home; we will cherish each image forever."
Dr. Jill Morris, D.D.S Sarasota, FL

Felicia Rothberg - Graphic Artist, Sarasota, FL
"Andrea Hillebrand is a very talented Photographer. Her style, customer service and commitment to providing her clients the highest quality product makes her the best possible choice for my clients. She is so reliable and easy to work with. I cannot say enough good things about her."
"I often sit in my office thinking about the business, all the challenges we face and all the problems we need to solve. But I know the refief from the stress of the day is always just a glance away in the pictures on my wall. I’ll treasure forever the shot you took of me and Leanna Mae in front of First Presbyterian Church a couple of years ago. There’s just something about the gleam in her eye, the sweet smile on her face that moves me and cheers me each time I look at it. It’s next to another of my favorites – one of Beth and Rogers that you took in that same session. I am so thankful to you for capturing these images that mean so much to me and I just wanted to let you know."
Linda Lemon-Steiner, COO Doctors Hospital, Sarasota, FL
"Dear Louise, Virginia, and Andrea, I want to tell you how thrilled I am with the profile and the picture.

Linda"

Darbi and Ilia Davis-Gernov
"Dear Andrea and her fabulous crew: Thank you so much for your talent, expertice, professionalism and understanding. (I’m sure there’s more) Ilia and I have ranked our experience with you as the best element of the wedding. I had so much fun with you all that I didn’t want to leave. We both felt as though you all were friends from way back. You don’t meet too many people like that these days. Everytime we look at our photos we will have such fond memories to recall. Thanks for making our day extra-special! I know that Ilia is going to want to stop by the studio and say hi next time we are in town – me too! In fact, he’s trying to figure out how to get you to Tucson to take pictures of our dogs in the desert. Bottomline – you all were fabulous! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! Love, Darbi & Ilia Davis-Gernov"
