From Kara – Our wedding was 12.08.2018 – it’s taken me a few weeks to post a review since I really just wanted to take it all in and spill my heart out about how much I loved working with Ashley. From day 1 Ashley was the FIRST vendor we booked (Even before having a venue/date) and boy am I so happy we did.
I knew I loved Ashely’s work and wanted to book her just by peeking at her website – I could tell she wasn’t going to be just a “vendor” but a friend and someone I could actually converse with. Since I’m a wedding planner and work with photographers ALL THE TIME I really knew what I wanted and what I didn’t want in someone. 1. Being that I didn’t wanna work with someone that I “hired” just to be there day of. THERES NOTHING WORSE THAN BEING PHOTOGRAPHED BY JUST “SOMEONE”.
I wanted to be comfortable, laugh, feel like friends, and with Ashley I felt like she understood EVERYTHING I wanted. She gave me suggestions, was super YASSSSSSS like I needed at times, and made me feel good – We spoke all the time, laughed, and we became friends. Why wouldn’t you wanna be friends with her or a “vendor” that’s shooting your special day? I just received my gallery about a week ago and I was BLOWN AWAY. EVERY SINGLE PICTURE WAS AMAZING!!!!! I was that bride that was like “don’t take pictures of my double chin” LOL (yes, that did happen) and as crazy as it sounds I don’t think you see it in ONE of my 1300 pictures I received.
Ashley, even took our amazing pregnancy announcement and inspired me to think outside the box. My FAVORITE addition to the wedding was smoke bombs right after we were pronounced Husband and Wife… the pictures came out AWESOME!!!!!!! And Ashley made my dream a reality by capturing the whole thing. I think when booking Ashely you need the WHOLE PACKAGE! The 10 hour package was MORE THAN WORTH IT! I hope to continue to work with Ashley in the future and recommend my brides to her if they want a totally awesome friend and photographer ♥️
