IN MY CLIENTS WORDS...

 
 
Ashley Burns Photography
After I got engaged, I heard over and over that of all the vendors we were going to hire, none is more important than the photographer. That being said, we did our research. A LOT of it. My husband and I found Ashley via social media and fell in love with her style of of photography. After our first meet over coffee, we instantly knew that she was our girl. From start to finish, Ashley showed the utmost professionalism and passion. She was organized and extremely detail-oriented, never failing to communicate schedules, timelines and goals. She was committed to understanding our vision, while embodying her own.

Our first time shooting with Ashley was our engagement session. Prior to, she had created a Pinterest board with shared ideas between the two of us which I found to be incredibly helpful (and exciting!). By the time she arrived, we had our general concepts and the session was a breeze. We had such a blast, and my husband, who can normally be quite shy, really enjoyed himself in front of the camera. This was due in large part to Ashley’s calm and comfortable demeanor. We left feeling so impressed and SO thrilled for our big day.

Over the course of our engagement, Ashley frequently checked in with us, bouncing ideas back and forth. She always made us feel like a priority which was really refreshing in a vendor. A month before our wedding, we met with her to go over our final schedule and details. She even created a thorough timeline of our day that we could share as needed, which earned several compliments from our vendors. Once again, Ashley was incredibly organized and efficient with her preparations.

Wedding day was A DREAM. Ashley and her assistant were prompt and ready to go from the second they walked in our door. They started immediately shooting details while my bridesmaids and I finished getting ready and were on to the next. Ashley followed the timeline to a tee, which made for an absolutely smooth day (and a calm bride). It was so helpful to know exactly what was going on before, during and after each event. Ashley captured all of our most important shots and truly shared our joy throughout the evening. She was ALWAYS a step ahead of us-we never had to worry. The best part of the evening was when she came by our sweetheart table during dinner with a few sneak peeks of the ceremony. It was such a special and surprising touch…my husband and I still beam about it.

I can’t say enough about Ashley. She has a real gift in what she does, and her passion shows at all times. We absolutely adore her and would refer her one hundred times over-in fact friends of ours have already booked her for their wedding next year. Our entire experience was flawless, and thanks to her and her breathtaking photos, we will remember it for years to come. Thank you, THANK YOU!

I had my eyes on Ashley Burns Photography for 2 years before I got engaged as Ashley was the second photographer at my brother’s wedding. I actually inquired with her about engagement and wedding photos 2 months before my husband popped the question!

After our first meeting, I knew immediately that she was the one for us! Throughout all of our meetings, she was super helpful with providing ideas and timelines to help out one stressed out bride-to-be. She was nothing but a pleasure to work with and her attention to detail is spot on. She is incredibly talented and she really does know how to capture any moment in the most effective way possible. We have so many beautiful photos and it’s very difficult to choose a favorite from our engagement shoot to our wedding.

Ashley Burns is hands down the best wedding photographer in Southern California! Our experience with her was great from our engagement and wedding photos was great and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who’s in need of a great photographer!

I have the pleasure of working with Ashley on a regular basis, and can’t say enough good things about her! Ashley shoots client lifestyle and branding content for me, and is not only amazing at what she does, but goes above and beyond every single time to make sure she is capturing everything I need. Her work speaks for itself, and her professionalism and talent are an unbelievable asset my business — There is nobody else I would rather work with. Ashley just ‘gets it’ when it comes to shooting content for marketing. I never have to worry that she won’t get the job done flawlessly. Beyond her high level of skill with photography, she is an absolutely lovely human being, and a vendor that I am truly proud to recommend to all of my clients!

When we got our wedding pictures back I was so excited I just could not wait - so while my Husband was at work, I took a little peek at our beautiful photos. I was texting him about how awesome they were. And then he asked me - “Was she [Ashley] worth it?” And my response was - I have already seen 3 pictures that alone made it worth every penny!

Not only did our pictures turn out beautiful, it was an absolute pleasure working with Ashley. My Husband and I have never taken couples pictures before our engagement shoot with Ashley and she made it so easy and such a relaxed, enjoyable experience.

Ashley’s attention to detail is what really sets her apart from all other photographers. She takes the time to fix your hair before each shot if needed - which saves you from saying “man this would have been a good picture...” Her photos have a beautiful natural style - no picture is over edited or crazy photo-shopped because with her extreme talent it simply does not need to be.

These are pictures we will cherish for a lifetime. Can’t wait to book another session! If we could rate her with an infinite amount of stars, we would.

Where do I even begin about our beloved Ashley Burns? I cannot say enough good things about this photographer. She has been there to capture every monumental moment in our family’s journey. I feel so thankful to have found her. This girl is pure magic! She makes the entire process feel so light, happy and fun. She brings beauty out of anything and everything. I am stunned by her incredible work every single time. She makes you feel magazine worthy and captures all the love and it shows in every frame. Ashley has captured the most special time in our lives so beautifully. Her pictures are priceless and cherished by our family. I highly recommend her to everyone I meet! I cannot brag about her work enough. You won’t find a better photographer anywhere.

Ashley presented us with the best dilemma newlyweds could have. Every single picture she took was so beautiful we had such trouble choosing which ones to put on our Thank You cards! These are the gifts that will keep on giving for generations. Her style is timeless and ethereal in the most natural way. Ashley was our confidant from the time we had our first sit-down with her through the wedding day and even after. We knew we were in for a treat when she took our engagement photos. Knee-deep in salt water, Ashley somehow captured the perfect sunset and our love for one another. She made a crowded beach feel and appear like our own wonderland. She is a miracle worker in the most amazing and unexpected ways. From the jittery “getting ready” moments to the giddy “WE’RE MARRIED!” moments, Ashley captured the essence of each special moment of our wedding day.

Your wedding day is the beginning of your entire life together so you will want beautiful, everlasting photographs to memorialize it. We are so excited to have Ashley as our forever photographer!

We had ashley photograph our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier with how our photos turned out. Not only is Ashley an amazing photographer, but she made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera and she’s so fun to be around. I loved having her involved in our special day, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, creative, and personable photographer!!!
— Rachel Diem
Ashley is extraordinary at what she does. When my husband and I picked a date for our wedding the first thing we started looking for was a photographer, this was one of the only things we didn’t take lightly. We wanted someone who could capture the love we felt for each other so that every time we looked back at the photos it would bring us back to the feelings we felt at those specific moments. We weeded through multiple people and we both knew that they were missing something, something that we instantly knew Ashley had while looking at her work. It’s amazing how in every photo you can see her passion for the work she does, it isn’t just work to her it’s art. Ashley photos has gone above and beyond what we would have hoped for, she truly has mastered her craft.

If Ashley had a fan club, I would nominate myself as president. As the owner of a celebrity + lifestyle PR firm—as well as a blogger—I have worked with many photographers of all levels. Ashley’s portfolio speaks for itself—her splendid use of light brings a bright + airy vibe perfect for both portraits and lifestyle photography. What sets her apart, though, is her confidence and easy going personality that not only makes her an absolute joy to be around, but puts everyone at ease.

Working alongside Ashley has been such a breath of fresh air! She’s not only creative and crazy talented, but a true professional who works hard to ensure her colleagues and clients have a great experience and beautiful photos! Ashley has such a positive outlook on life, which makes her a joy to work with! I consider myself lucky to know her for the warm person she is, and to see her talents in action!
— Meghan O'Sullivan
Long before I was even engaged, I knew Ashley was going to be photographing my wedding one day. After years of drooling over the perfect Facebook pictures, I now have my own fairytale, Pinterest-worthy wedding photos. Even after already recognizing Ashley’s talents prior to hiring her, she blew us away with how beautiful and amazing both our engagement and wedding photos have turned out. Our wedding day was so wonderfully emotional and I was worried I would forget those feelings, but they immediately come rushing back looking at her work of us. Her ability to flawlessly capture emotion in a still image is incomparable. She pours her heart and soul into her work. And on top of all of this, she has one of the kindest, friendliest and most easy-going personalities of anybody I’ve ever had the honor of calling a friend, because that is what I now consider her. She will forever be apart of our family and we could not be more grateful, appreciative, or in awe of her work. I cannot recommend her enough; all I can say is: if you are blessed enough to get to meet her, you’ll know immediately why all of her clients are in love with her.
— Lauren Brink
Ashley Burns is one of the most talented photographers I’ve ever worked with! Her work is absolutely stunning and I’ve never felt more beautiful than I do when she takes a photo of me. Not only is Ashley’s work outstanding, but through our working together she has also become a close friend. She is truly a gem!!!
— Ali Fedotowsky-Manno
I feel so lucky that Ashley came into my life as a photographer for my blog! When I started working with her, the quality and quantity of my content instantly went WAY up! Not only is she an absolute joy to work with (her passion is infectious), she brings so much talent and beauty to every photo she takes! She is so dedicated, knowledgable, and chock full of great ideas. I am absolutely in love with the photos from every shoot we’ve ever done together, and I always look forward to our next one! As a stylist and blogger for 8 years, I have worked with a whole lot of photographers and I can honestly say that Ashley is one of the best!
— Catherine Sheppard, Stylist and Blogger of The Life Styled
If I could give more stars, I seriously would! We were searching all over Los Angeles for the perfect photographer for our wedding, and got extremely lucky my sister-in-law suggested checking out Ashley’s work. Ashley had done family photos for my brother & sister-in-law for several years and I instantly fell in love with everything I saw. I met Ashley for coffee to go over her work, packages and contract, and I never thought finding the right wedding photographer would be so easy. We met a couple more times to go over details and walk the venues together, and when the wedding day came, well, it went as perfectly as I could have ever imagined. Ashley and her assistant were efficient while we were getting ready, discreet during the ceremony, quick and direct during family photos, a blast to hang out with during photos of just the bride & groom, and caught every last moment as we busted loose on the dance floor. Ashley got our entire album (over 700 pictures) to us just about a month after the wedding, and every time I look through them I feel like I’m reliving the day and can’t help but smile. I can’t recommend Ashley enough, and if I could do it all over again- I wouldn’t change a thing! My only problem now is how to pick which photos are my favorites, because I truly love them all. I can’t wait to find an excuse to hire her again!
— Merria Velasco
We recently took our family photos with Ashley. She came highly recommend to us from close friends. All I can say is AMAZING!!! Ashley is so creative, professional and was so great with our daughters. She is truly an artist and a very talented photographer. We are beyond happy with our family photos! She captured the most precious and beautiful moments of my daughters. We can’t wait until our next session with her! We highly recommend Ashley for all of your photography needs. Simply the best!
— The Sargent/Weiner Family
Creative, artistic, professional, positive…so many words to describe Ashley Burns it would be hard to pick just one. Ashley has been our family photographer for the last two years. She has documented some of our biggest milestones as a family, starting with maternity photos, newborn pictures for both our children, as well as holiday photos for our Christmas cards. She is very professional, and relates easily to her subjects. She is great with little kids (especially our energetic, yet stubborn two year old) and adults alike, making us feel comfortable with her so we can be ourselves in front of the camera. Her photographs always turn out amazing! She makes everyone look good! She is comfortable shooting anywhere, from the beach, to the park, to our home. Ashley is our family photographer and now, family friend, for life. Without reservation, I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone who was asking for a photographer.
— Abby Hughes
Choosing Ashley Burns as our wedding photographer was absolutely the best decision. She is always professional and willing to go the extra mile to make things perfect. Every photo we received was wonderful. She was really the touch that not only made our wedding day amazing, but go smoothly as well. We cannot recommend her enough!
— Rachel and Jesse Hubbard
We hired Ashley for our engagement photos and wedding. She had been recommended to us by several friends and we have always been fans of her photos. We knew the instant we met her that we wanted to work with her. She is knowledgeable, energetic, fun to work with and so very talented. We had never done any kind of professional photos before and Ashley put us completely at ease immediately and we had a blast! We truly loved working with her. Ashley was incredibly helpful every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable about all things wedding and even helped us out to make sure our timeline for the day had a nice flow while still fitting in everything we needed to do. We cannot even convey how much we adore our photos. They are stunning. We have and will continue to recommend Ashley to all of our friends and family and absolutely plan to work with her again in the future.
— Scott and Ashley Haggai
Don’t walk....run. The BEST photographer and person on the planet. You WANT this woman to shoot your wedding (or event) because she can see everything you need to be seen. She has the eyes of an artist and the soul of a painter. But it is her heart that separates her from all the rest.”

”Ashley is an incredibly creative, professional photographer. She has amazing vision and style. Ashley’s pictures of our wedding are a treasure; and she made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process
— Valerie & Lisa
We LOVE Ashley! She’s an incredibly talented, patient, professional, and overall beautiful artist and person. We have had two family shoots with her and both came out just phenomenal. We received countless compliments on our holiday card that featured the photos she took. She was so patient with our 4 and 2 yo and got some beautiful candid shots of them. My kids adore her and we plan the continue to utilize her for all family photography needs we may have. Oh, and we got our images from her so fast! Very quick turnaround. You can tell she is very passionate about what she does. It shows in the quality of her work.
— Beth Townsend
As an artist, I am very picky when choosing someone to capture family photos for us. I searched high and low and saw that a couple of local friends had beautiful family photos taken by Ashley, so I was eager to schedule a mini shoot with her! I am so glad I did. I looked through her portfolio and told her exactly the locations I loved, she suggested the perfect location, and met us there. Though our baby was a bit unsure of the situation, Ashley gave us some really beautiful photos that we will cherish! Her style is so fresh and romantic, which is exactly what I was looking for. We will definitely contact her again in the future for more family pictures as our family grows.
— Jenny Sims
My boyfriend and I wanted nice pictures since we have basically only have selfies after being together for four years. We contacted Ashley and she went above and beyond. We didn’t get just “nice pictures” we got beautiful, one-of-a-kind images that we will cherish. She was also so great to work with. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and we had a wonderful time with her. Altogether, Ashley is an amazing photographer and I can’t wait for her to capture more of our memories!
— Elizabeth Lawrence
Ashley was such a HUGE help in making our wedding special & memorable! She made us feel comfortable in her capable hands from our 1st meeting! We were referred to Ashley & she exceeded our expectations! She’s a joy to work with and her work is impeccable!
— Amara Carpenter
Ashley is one of the most talented, kind, and thoughtful people I’ve ever worked with! She really takes the time to get to know you and understand your vision, so she can help make it come to life...
— Allison Gamble
There really isn’t enough wonderful things my husband and I can say about her and her work. The beauty in Ashley’s work speaks for itself but beyond that she is a beautiful person inside and out. In this day and age that is so hard to find and shows through in all her work. This wonderful lady not only made our wedding day and engagement shoot  beyond special,  but in the months leading up to our wedding went above and beyond to help me organize, give me ideas, help my groom with what he should wear, checked in with us about do’s and don’ts, and scouted out the venue to ensure she was familiar with all the best places for lighting and photos prior to the wedding, and always got sneak peaks of the pics to us like right away! Not to mention is super fast in getting the final photos to us also! I can genuinely say that my husband and I cannot wait to work with her again for all our important moments in our future! We were so so lucky to have found her!
— Stacy Chacon
We have used Ashley for basically every big event and family photo for the last few years. We use her so much because each and every time she astounds us with her amazing ability to capture the spirit of the day and deliver the most amazing photographs thanks to her good eye and talent. She has a gift for being able to take ordinary shots and give them an artistic flair. We had an ‘ambitious’ idea for our Christmas photo last year, (and assumed it probably wouldn’t work out), but Ashley was a miracle worker and went above and beyond accomplishing our lofty family photo goals. She is simply FANTASTIC! If you want a mega-talented, fun, professional photographer, look no further. We would highly recommend her to anyone for any job, no matter how big or small. (And she’s amazing with kids!!)”
— Angela and Alfonso Ribeiro
We first hired Ashley three years ago for photos of my boyfriend, now fiancé, and I — and with utmost certainty, I know Ashley will continue to be our photographer for years to come. There’s something about having Ashley as your photographer that gives you a sense of comfort. Not only she is entirely professional during the process, her talent and creativity radiate as she is taking our photos. You can tell that she strives for perfection, and she takes her time to ensure she has taken the best images possible. We have used her for multiple shoots such as lifestyle, holiday, graduation and now our proposal!! No matter the situation or location, Ashley is always prepared and even when challenges occur, her demeanor does not falter. She is prompt with responses, arrived to shoots early and always sends out photos back in a timely manner! I cannot help but recommend her to anyone that mentions they need a photographer!!
— Madeline Altieri
Ashley is a dream come true to a bride and groom. She took her time to get to know us and built a relationship with us. We were able to share our ideas with her through a shared Pinterest board. As an artist she likes to take her time to compose a beautiful photo. She is flexible and willing  to try new ideas. Our weddings day went nothing as planned but she was flexible and willing to stand in the pouring rain in order to take the perfect picture. Ashley is an artist , a professional and a friend.
— Joshua & Amanda Maddux
I don’t think I even have the words to describe the AMAZING Ashley Burns. I have been photographed by many through the years and I can simply say Ashley is one of the best. I absolutely love the moments she captures! She is my go to girl and is the only one I trust for my family photos! She makes everyone so incredibly comfortable and my kids love her. Ashley is more than a great photographer, she is a genuine soul, a perfectionist, a true professional, brilliant talent, and one of the best humans I know! Simply put, we love Ashley and are forever grateful for the incredible images she has captured of our family!
— Beverley Cameron
Ashley is the epitome of a creative artist; always dreaming, hustling, stretching her creative muscles in new and exciting ways. The numerous times I’ve worked with Ashley have left me breathless. Her images are truly remarkable, and her passion and exuberance - intoxicating. I am consistently blown away by her work ethic, her positive outlook and her generous nature. Ashley is more than a photographer, she’s a mentor, a creative, a powerhouse, and I’m lucky to work along side her in so many professional capacities. Thanks for your faith in everything I do, and bless you for sharing your incredible gift with the world
— Rochelle Leigh Wall
Raw artistic talent. Ashley’s natural ability of capturing the essence and sentiment of the occasion is difficult to describe. When looking at her photos, we not only can reminisce about the experience itself but can relive the emotions of the moment. As time inescapably passes by, we become increasingly grateful to Ashley for giving us the ability to revisit important stages of our lives so vividly. Her talent, diligence, and integrity are second to nobody. Thank you, Ashley.
— Lisa Thomes and Family
I searched high and low for the best photographer in LA to shoot our family photos and after weeks of research I stumbled across Ashley’s Facebook page. It was a literal “Ah-Ha!” moment. Her work is pure perfection. Not only is she an incredible artist but she is kind, patient and beautiful inside and out. She made me and my family feel so comfortable. It was our first professional photoshoot with our baby and of course chaos ensued but Ashley was patient with us, extremely accommodating, and just knew exactly where to position us. She truly is an amazing photographer and we’re so blessed to have gotten to work with her. I highly recommend her. Thank you Ashley for everything! We look forward to many more photoshoots!
— Snoe Aschman
Funny enough, I met Ashley when she shot a friends wedding a few years back. We connected on social media but I didn’t know her that well. I had written a pretty vulnerable blog about a tough situation I was going through, and I was immediately touched that she took the time to not only comment on it with words of encouragement, but share it to all of her friends. When it became time for my fiancee and I to look for a wedding photographer, we didn’t know where to start. My fiancee had mentioned how she didn’t want our photographer to feel like a stranger. She wanted someone we could really grow with. Someone to not only shoot our wedding, but pregnancy photos when we have kids and family portraits when our family is old enough. Ashley immediately popped in my mind, so I reached out to set a meeting. That was at the beginning of the year and with our wedding now less than a month away, I already know we made the right choice. We couldn’t be happier with our engagement photos. Ashley not only has a very talented eye, but she is wise far beyond her years. She is personable and caring. Some professionals are only in it for a paycheck, and it’s obvious with Ashley that she cares about her craft. Perfect example, just a couple weeks after our wedding date was confirmed Ashley was asked to be a bridesmaid in a close friends wedding that fell on our wedding day. Ashley was immediately filled with anxiety trying to balance the duties of a friend with managing her business, but she put us first and said she would still shoot our wedding. She didn’t have to do that, and fortunately for us the friends wedding date moved, so we got her back! We have both clicked with Ashley and can’t say enough positive things. We look forward to continuing our friendship and having her capture our precious moments!

When my wife and I had initially began the search for our engagement/wedding photographer (let’s keep it real, my wife was doing all the work - LOL), my wife had continued to tell me about one photographer in specific, Ashley. She described how incredibly talented she was, coupled with her remarkable ability to capture that “perfect shot.” Being a typical guy, my A-D-D comprehension got in the way of truly having the vision behind her verbal testimonial...so like any man would do, I hopped on the internet (our best friend) only to see what all the fuss was about for myself —— and woww!!!!!! Her description of these shots didn’t do it justice! From each new client album that I clicked through, I only got more excited knowing that she was “THE ONE”...yes, I am talking about Ashley (the wife had already been locked up - LOL). Once we agreed that we wanted to hire Ashley to snap the most memorable events of our lives, it only got better from there. We had an initial meet and greet in order for Ashley to get to know us, see our chemistry together and how she would stage each shoot. Michelle (the wifey) chose our (3) engagement shoot venues, which were gorgeous, and to no surprise, Ashley seized the most stunning shots of us, just loving life. It didn’t matter if we were laughing, talking, posing or just being straight clowns —— the results were astonishing! Our daughter also took part in the shoot (duh), but I only state this because of how comfortable Ashley made her feel the entire time. As if that shoot wasn’t enough, months later the three of us met up for the flow of the wedding shots. Can you say OOORRRGGAAANNNIIIIIZZZZEEEEDDDD!!!! Oh yeah, Ashley is practically a wedding coordinator as well, FYI...she gathered the event planners information, created a timeline of which shots were happening from the FIRST LOOK to the family, friends, and wedding pics...it was so detailed that it made us feel even more confident in not having to worry about the flow of getting things done on time. So yes, she alleviated the wifey of even more stress, which made me an even happier hubby :) In the end, you don’t even get what you pay for...you get so much MORE!!!! If you want the ultimate photography experience captured through the lens of an expert, then Ashley is “THE ONE” for you too - LOL. You can thank me later.
