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.
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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!!)

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.
