Andra and Liv

A little about our story

Upon meeting at a holiday party, Andra and Liv discovered that they had an instant aligning vision to how they approach photography. They are driven by human connection, trust, and believe genuine moments create the best art. From there, the stars all magically aligned and the two came together to continue the Apollo vision of authentic storytelling. These two can't wait to be part of your journey.

let's have some fun together!

MEET ANDRA BLYTHE

Owner

My journey into photography started as a young teen when my parents shipped me off to Spain for the summer. Little did I know what an impact this adventure would have on the course of my life. I packed very little, just some clothes and a newly purchased camera – a Canon Rebel 2000 that I had saved up for from my paper route. Stepping onto that plane all by myself with my camera in hand would have made most kids anxious, but I was genuinely brimming with excitement. New places to explore with people unknown filled me with a sense of adventure and I planned on documenting the entire experience.  Spain did not disappoint, and I snapped my shutter ravenously during that summer as I traversed the country, awakening two separate passions in me: my love of travel (the more hidden and uncharted, the better) and my love of imagery. Travel continues to fuel my soul, and photography has been an amazing gateway into other cultures around the world, whether to satisfy my own wanderlust or to be part of someone else's journey.

Like many individuals who realize they love to capture moments suspended in time, a day comes when they need to find a way to fund this passion. So, a photography career was born. My small business quickly grew until the fateful day when I shot my first wedding, and a new passion was born: documenting love stories.

my driving force is this:

What lives at your core?

What excites you in your day to day?

mine is connection...

I ache for authentic exchanges and sweet moments. Before photography, I was a musician. It gave me room to feel and make others feel. Picking up a camera was next.

Fun fact, I started at a New York fashion week. A happy accident. The photos I took in between filming runway, would lead me to be invited back a few more times. I take that draw to fashion and personal style, and apply it to my sessions with people.

Photographing people in different parts of the world and from different backgrounds excites me. I love meeting new people, somewhere fresh, and painting a picture together that is specific to that moment. The canvas is blank, yet we have al the tools to capture something beautiful.

Hurricanes live at my core when I am gearing up to capture a new story, because truly, each couple and individual I meet is a new adventure for me. There is always a story to be told.

I personally find joy in altering my surroundings. The creation and manipulation of light combined with the exact right lens and camera pairing enables us to have complete control over what the audience sees by the time the image hits the camera's sensor. Currently, I am in pre-production on three short films, writing four feature length screenplays and traversing the festival circuit with four short films.

We are always looking for talented people to join our creative team of San Francisco wedding photographers & cinematographers!
