Accommodation and Grace

My wife and I are so pleased to have found and chosen Ashley Smith to be our wedding photographer! From start to finish, the whole process was a pleasure. We were put at ease from the start during the planning phase and continually felt we were getting professional, reliable, and accommodating service. The day of couldn't have gone better...Ashley was graceful and showed tactfulness when dealing with guests of honor and the vendor. Her creativity resulted in an amazing final product that we will cherish forever. Thank you Ashley!

Best choice I made for my wedding

Ashley is not only an excellent photographer, but she was my BFF throughout the entire wedding planning process. She made an incredibly detailed timeline and worked with us and the venue to ensure that every photo we wanted had the opportunity to be taken. She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot that we decided to add her on for rehearsal dinner coverage as well and I can't imagine anyone else capturing our "vibe" as well as Ashley did. She captured so many genuine moments while remaining discreet, but somehow was next to me with safety pins when my dress broke. She was so patient and helpful during the album-making process and allowed me to customize everything. Cannot recommend enough!!!

Definitely Recommend

We took engagement photos with Ashley. Being my first photo shoot, I wasn't sure what to expect and felt pretty nervous going into it. Ashley was kind, made us laugh and also made us feel at ease! She took wonderful photos and the experience was great. She was easy to work with and I appreciated that she was considerate of our wants/opinions for the photos as well. For example, she guided us throughout the shoot but then asked if there was anywhere/anything else we wanted to shoot. We enjoyed our experience and definitely recommend Ashley!
