in my clients and colleagues words.
Ashley and I have been working together for three years now. When we first started working together I didn’t have a clear vision for my brand’s aesthetic. I knew what I wanted to say as a brand but I didn’t know how to say it through cohesive photos - which is so important in the day and age of Instagram. If you were to look at my Instagram feed before I started working with Ashley and after you would see my brand go from a hobby to a business with a clear vision! Over the last three years, that vision has become more and more clear and I know Ashley is a massive part of that. My business has tripled since then and other brands love working with me because of the gorgeous photos we capture together showing off their product so beautifully. One of the companies I work with, consistently shows Ashley’s photos to other influencers as an example of the perfect photo to capture with their product. And the best part? I get to experience all of this growth in my business while working with someone who has become a dear friend.
Ashley was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! She was more than just our photographer; she was almost like a built in wedding planner and personal assistant all combined in one. From the beginning, Ashley helped us plan our day and gave us advice on what to do and what not to do. She truly cared about our special day and wanted everything to go as smoothly and as perfect as possible for us. The day of she was prepared and kept to our timeline which made everything much less stressful and allowed us to relax. Each time we were in front of the camera, she made the experience fun and natural (coming from two people who do not like to be in front of the camera)! We cannot say enough good things about our experience and are beyond happy with how our wedding photos turned out! Thank you Ashley for being a part of our special day and for everything you did to make it so perfect! Choosing the right wedding photographer can definitely make or break your wedding and I would highly recommend Ashley to capture your wedding!
We knew that capturing the moments of our wedding day was one of our top priorities when we first started planning. This is such a personal component, and we felt like we were at a disadvantage as we were planning a west coast wedding from the east coast. Fortunately, a friend of ours had worked on a shoot with Ashley and recommended adding her to our list of potential photographers. We instantly checked out Ashley’s website and social media accounts. At this point we knew that the combination of her style and the positive recommendation made her our best option.The first time we met Ashley in person was at our engagement session, which we squeezed into a quick trip out west. We had a lot to accomplish in little time and we were pretty nervous about having to take pictures for an hour with someone we never met. Luckily, we immediately realized Ashley was perfect for two people who aren’t typically very comfortable in front of a camera. She made the hour feel like five minutes, and we felt so serene the entire time. This moment took many worries away leading up to the wedding day. We were so confident that Ashley was going to do a great job, and as expected, she didn’t let us down. We managed to put her an hour and a half behind on the day of the wedding - really sorry, Ashley! Without any dispute, Ashley calmly rallied an impatient crowd and got us back on track. She was truly amazing from start to finish, and we were very fortunate to have one of the most professional people we have met capture our special day.
Where should we start? When I first met Ashley, I was impressed with how professional she was and how passionate she was about photography. Throughout our entire process, every time I saw her, she made me feel comfortable in front of the camera.I hate being photographed, but she made the process enjoyable. Once I saw the way she captured my husband and I, I was amazed. She has a gift, and she makes you feel beautiful. At our wedding, she was amazing at working with our other vendors and making the day run smoothly. Ashley captured some of our most precious moments, and we love looking at the photos she captured. She goes above and beyond for her clients, and she was the best vendor we chose for our special day. Inside and out, Ashley is a beautiful soul who has a precious talent she shares with everyone she photographs.
We cannot thank Ashley enough for capturing our special day! Not only does she take the most AMAZING photos ever but she is so much fun to be around. Her friendly personality is contagious and our entire wedding party felt completely comfortable with her immediately. We instantly clicked with her the moment we met and hired her that night to shoot our wedding! Not only did she keep us all on schedule (wrangling 25+ people is no easy task) but she did it all with a smile! Also last minute we had to change our first look location due to light and we trusted Ashley to make the best decision. I am so glad we did because the photos turned out better than we imagined. And during our reception she showed us a preview of some photos (her famous ninja edit) and we were totally blown away!! These are the photos that we will hang on our walls and cherish for the rest of our lives and we could not be happier hiring Ashley. You made all of our wedding dreams come true! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we love you so much!!!
Ash, We truly couldn’t have imagined anyone else capturing our special day. Your passion for what you do shines so brightly!! Our friends and family couldn’t stop raving about you the entire weekend. Not only did our pictures turn out amazing, but our wedding day went so smoothly and we couldn’t thank you enough for that! You weren’t just our photographer, you helped us handle every loose end that we would have never thought of throughout the entire wedding planning process. The day of the wedding you handled 15 roles like a champ, making our day so stress free and seamless! YOU ARE AMAZING! We love you so so much,The Bratts
When looking for a wedding photographer it is one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. The moment my husband and I met Ashley we knew that she would make sure to capture our wedding day perfectly. Not only is her work amazing, but she goes above and beyond! She makes sure to get to know you on a personal level which makes everything on your wedding day go so smoothly. Ashley is so talented and such a loving and caring person. She is so passionate about what she does and it shows through her work and how she builds lasting relationships with her clients. My wedding day would not have been the same without Ashley. She made sure that everything was unforgettable! By the way she captured every photo I could ever imagined and STILL managed to edit and give me four photos before I even left my wedding venue! She is hands down the best photographer. Her work is priceless. I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life! Ashley seriously deserves more than 5 stars she is absolutely amazing!
I’m not sure amazing covers how wonderful Ashley is. I am not a wedding person, I don’t know etiquette, timelines, etc. I just knew I wanted gorgeous photos of our day. Ashley hopped right in and helped make it all come together. Her professionalism and kindness is incomparable. The SAME night she sent us a handful of BREATHTAKING photos to hold us over until the rest were edited. Guys, THE. SAME. NIGHT! That is unheard of especially for the quality of photos we received. Hiring Ashley is by far the the best decision I made when planning our wedding. She’s part of the family now and we just adore her!
I don’t even know where to start. I have followed Ashley’s business since high school and I have always been in love with her use of light. Her photos are simply breathtaking and I knew that’s exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. Ashley did an incredible job for both our wedding and engagement photos. This girl went above and beyond to make sure everything went perfect! She created a timeline and made sure everyone adhered to it. If it wasn’t for her I definitely would have lost my cool. She made my whole wedding experience amazing and I wouldn’t change a thing! Her service was amazing, her photos are amazing, and she is just amazing. Already scheduled our Christmas photo session cause we love her so much!!!!
Ashley was a treat to work with on our wedding day! She is the sweetest person ever and she made our day flow seamlessly. We had complete trust that Ashley would capture our wedding beautifully from start to finish, so we gave her creative freedom. She went above and beyond!!! We constantly have people telling us that our wedding photos look like they are out of a magazine! She captured every special moment. We couldn’t be happier and we will continue to use Ashley in the years to come. She has a special place in our hearts. We love you Ash!! Love, Shane and Chrissy
Back in 2011 I decided I wanted to take photos with my siblings for my parents for Christmas. I knew my dear friend, Ashley, had been doing photography and gave her a call. It has been absolutely incredible watching her grow and create this beautiful business. She has stood by my side through many different stages in my life and I am forever grateful for her loyalty and love. I have known for a very long time that one of the only things I wanted for my wedding was to have Ashley there. I’ve said it over a hundred times but Ashley helped make my wedding day everything I had dreamed of and more. She constantly keeps a smile on her face, she is so easy to work with (especially when you have a big family), and she helps to make the day full of fun and laughter. Ashley, we are so grateful for you and so grateful that you were there with us on our wedding day. Love you bunches and bunches.
I don’t even know where to begin with how amazing Ashley is! I knew before I even got engaged that I wanted her to be my photographer. I stumbled across her page one day on instagram and the light and airy style of her photographs immediately caught my attention. During our engagement session and on our wedding day, she made us feel so comfortable. She is so down to earth and easy to work with. I had so many people stop me on our wedding day to comment on how amazing she was. I knew she was amazing, but when we got our wedding photos back I was absolutely blown away. I still cant look at them without crying! She captured the day and our love so beautifully and I am forever grateful for her and her talent. I would recommend her to anyone- she is truly the best!!
What can we say, Ashley is simply amazing! When my husband and I started our wedding planning process we both discussed that we wanted an amazing photographer to capture our day. After doing research via social media, we came across Ashley’s profile. I started to follow her and loved her style. When we met her in person to discuss what we wanted to achieve, we instantly knew that we were choosing her to be our photographer. My husband and I have never taken professional pictures up until our engagement session with Ashley. We let Ashley know how nervous we were to take these photos; after a few takes, we felt so relaxed and comfortable taking them. Fast forward to our wedding day, Ashley was prompt and started to shoot immediately. She was super nice to everyone and like us, she made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Her timeline was perfect for our day. She made the whole experience easy for us and she felt like a friend we have known forever. Ashley is down right one of the kindest hearted people we know, she genuinely cares about her clients and does her absolute best to make sure you are satisfied and happy with her services. We would recommend Ashley 110%.
Where do I even begin with Ashley?!I had been searching and searching wedding photographers, showing my husband different photographers work. Frank is undoubtedly the pickiest person I know. When I showed him Ashley’s Instagram page, he said “ok now her, I like”. I thought, ok that’s major coming from him. Fast forward to meeting Ashley. Her work speaks for itself. But her as an actual human being is something I cant put into words. She instantly just won us over. At our engagement shoot she made us feel like old friends. I remember being so incredibly nervous. At the end of our shoot I considered taking up modeling because I had THAT much fun. (Totally kidding about the modeling thing) but honestly, that is just how fun/easy she made our engagement shoot.Wedding day was a dream. The second she walked into my hotel room I felt an instant relief. Seeing her warm smile and her support the entire day was amazing. At the end of the night when it was time to say goodbye I was so sad. I did not want her to leave!Ashley is truly so talented. She is so passionate about what she does and it totally shows. I couldn’t even begin to imagine having someone else capture our entire process. We adore you Ash!The Garcias
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!XO-The Milovichs
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!!!
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!
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.
Where do I even begin with trying to explain how amazing it was working with Ashley?! Ashley was the second vendor we booked, after our venue, as we knew we wanted to have her as our photographer. We had seen her work from other friends’ weddings and she had the aesthetic we were looking for. Once we met her, we knew she was the perfect fit for us! Right when you meet Ashley, she has a presence that immediately makes you feel comfortable with her. I had seen engagement photos in Big Sur, CA at a beautiful scenic bridge and we also have a family cabin in Santa Cruz, CA (about an hour away). I couldn’t imagine taking our engagement photos anywhere else, and when I proposed the idea to Ashley, she was so excited and on board with the idea and willing to fly up for the day to make our engagement photo dreams come true. We felt so lucky to have so much time to get to know Ashley a bit better on our adventures driving from one spot to the next, and it just felt so natural shooting with her!Fast forward to the wedding day and I don’t think the day would have been as perfect without her! She helped make sure our timeline would work and our indoor venue had these incredible skylights so she looked into the time of sunset to make sure lighting would be perfect. Ashley also found the perfect place to shoot our bridal party and romantic shots in an empty room of our venue, and I can’t even describe how perfect they turned out! After getting our photos back, they were more amazing than I could have ever imagined. We feel so lucky to have worked with someone so talented. Not only that, but you can tell how much she genuinely cares about her clients and making the day as perfect as it can be.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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
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...
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!
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!!
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.
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
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.
