Client Testimonials & Kind Words

 

“I found Ashley when she was doing a engagement sale last year. I wasn’t engaged but wanted couple pictures so I contacted her from the get go. I knew she was gonna be amazing and boy was I right. Ashley is so personable and sweet and is wonderful at giving directions for posing and lighting. She is fun and quirky and very go with the flow which I love! So when I got engaged I obviously knew she had to shoot my engagement photos and my wedding. We just had the engagement session and it was even more amazing than the first session! The pictures capture our love in a beautiful way! Ashley truly is the bees knees 🐝!” -Haley Y

She gives good direction and makes you feel like a pro. I loved every picture that she took! She made me feel absolutely beautiful and did a fantastic job capturing the love we have for each other.

“Ashley is absolutely amazing! She did my husband and I’s engagement and wedding pictures and we loved working with her! I’m very camera shy and awkward but Ashley was so personable and fun she helped me relax and our pictures turned out incredible! I’m not one to be a fan of pictures of myself either and I can honestly say there wasn’t a photo Ashley took that I didn’t like. She’s very professional, it shows in her work, but when your working with her it’s like your hanging out with a friend. She’s so incredibly talented, she goes the extra mile for her clients and makes sure you’re happy every step of the way. Ashley’s sure to capture your precious memories in the most beautiful way! All of my friends and family said how much they loved her too! Not only because of her gorgeous photos but her personality and how friendly and sweet she was with everyone as well. Bottom line is Ashley is an absolutely incredible person and photographer and if you hire her I promise you won’t regret it!” -Maggie & Ted D.

“We had a mini-wedding horror story due to a hurricane forcing us to postpone our wedding. Our original photographer couldn’t accommodate our new date so we had to find a new photographer less than 2 months before our new date. But the silver lining is that we then found Ashley! I was immediately impressed by her pictures I saw on Instagram, contacted her, and luckily she was available! Ashley was very understanding of our situation and worked with us to get our wedding back on track.

We met Ashley for the first time in person on our wedding day. She had an outgoing personality, and a great sense of humor that matched ours. She was able to make two awkward, un-photogenic people look like models! Her knowledge on posing (I loved all her posing tips!), lighting, angles was so impressive – but best of all was her ability to make us feel comfortable and relaxed!

Friends and family have told us how beautiful our pictures are and how much they loved our photographer (and her assistant). They were both so fun and really added to our reception! When you have fun photographers it makes everyone feel more comfortable on the dance floor!

Ashley was extremely quick and effective with all communication (which is huge to me). She also had a fast turnaround with picture delivery. We had sneak peaks the next day, a blog post within 5 days, and the entire gallery in 2 weeks! She also went above and beyond when we inquired about specific pictures. This woman works hard for her couples!

You can’t go wrong with Ashley. Her outgoing personality makes her a fantastic wedding photographer for any couple! We 100% recommend her, and will hire her again ourselves for future family pictures!” -Chelsea & Aaron S.


“Can’t say enough good things about Ashley !! She was very responsive from the first day. When she came over for the day of the wedding she made you feel so comfortable.

"I originally found Ashley via Instagram or Google while looking for someone to photograph our family post wedding (second wedding/ small ceremony).

I plan to use her for future family photos and would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a photographer. I would give her 10 stars if I could. Thank you Ashley!!!" -Maria B.


"My husband and I did our anniversary shoot with Ashley. I was nervous at first (I'm always awkward in front of the camera) but all that melted away once we met! Ashley is a true professional with a knack for putting her clients at ease. Prior to the shoot Ashley kept up a strong communication and went out of her way to help us coordinate our outfits and adjusted the shoot for weather. During the shoot she talked us through the posing and caught all of the little candid moments that came along with them. Our digital copies were ready the same day and I was able to order prints the next day. Ashley kept it fast, fun, and professional - even my husband approved! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photography session, no matter the occasion!" -Melanie L.

"I was so excited when Ashley reached out to do my maternity photos. Having never had them done with my previous pregnancies, it was something I really wanted get done before I close the pregnancy chapter. It was freezing next to the water, but she made it fun and got amazing shots quickly. She was accommodating to my two wild little ones, and even snapped a few photos with them! All my photos were finished the same day of my shoot and I LOVE THEM! So grateful to have such stunning photos to look back on and share with my family. I will be booking her for my newborn/family photos too!" -Samantha J.

"Ashley photographed my son's first birthday party. It was such a relief knowing someone was there to catch every special moment so my husband and I could enjoy it without lugging our phones around. Her photos were gorgeous and she got them to us so quickly. Will definitely recommend her to all our friends, and use her for future photos. Thank you Ashley!!" -Brandy S.


"My family loves Ashley!! She makes the actual process of snapping the photos so positive, natural, and fun. My husband doesn’t like posing or anyone taking photos of him (like ever) and he looks good in all of them!! Ashley is crazy incredibly talented. Then she sent me my edited photos literally faster than I had time to think about if she was ever going to do it (we all know how photographers can sometimes seem like they enjoy making us wait for it). Anyway. I highly recommend this awesome lady!! She’s perfect for everyone!!" -Chiara H.

"My husband and I had a maternity shoot with Ashley, we were running super late and she was very understanding! Once our shoot began she was right away helping us with poses the whole time reassuring us that we looked great! She was extremely creative and open! She was professional, but not to the point where we felt uncomfortable! She spent time getting to know us and telling us about her! By the end of the shoot we didn’t feel like we spent the morning with a photographer, but with a long time friend! Her session was extremely cheap for her quality of photos! Absolutely would recommend and can’t wait to work with her again!" -Katelynn G.


"Ashley is hands down the most professional photographer I have had . She did an absolute fantastic job at my son's 1st birthday. I can’t wait till the summer to use her again for family photos. She is reasonably priced, on time, and will answer any question you have!" -Kendra D.
