She’s like a Ninja in a party dress
Ashley Black of Fantail Photography is a talented photographer, accommodating, and delightful to work with. I’m recommending her to everyone I know getting married.
To quote my husband who is a videographer, “she’s like a ninja!” She manages to be everywhere she needs to be for a perfect shot without being seen. In a video of our ceremony, we see the top of her head by the front row of guests for a moment. Then she ducks out of sight and soon pops up at the opposite end of the aisle snapping more photos. I assume she pulled a duck and run move; it was fast.
Ashley and her assistant Joe were so much fun to work with but also professional. They’re organized, energetic, love to dance, and showed up ready to work and make our day special.
My father-in-law commented that compared to other wedding photographers, they were very organized and efficient. I was worried we had too many family portraits but we finished them rather quickly. She’s also great with kids. Ashley had our two-year-old nephew (and everyone) attentive and smiling in each portrait shot.
The photos we have so far are amazing. Per contract she posted a preview on Facebook the night of our wedding and emailed me more the next day. I can’t wait to see all the rest.
I encourage you to contact Ashley if you like Fantail’s style; even if you just like one photo. She’s very responsive, open to your ideas, and offers flexible packages.Sent on 08/06/2019

Fantail made my wedding so fun!
Ashely is the most wonderful person ever! Hands down, the greatest! For the wedding, she was incredible. I know I'm going to start gushing, but I really feel strongly about how great she is. My wedding wouldn't have been as fun if I had picked someone else.Sent on 06/19/2019
So I knew I wanted to hire her from the start, but my husband Justin hadn't met her before. So I emailed her and we set up a time to grab some coffee and talk. We were there for around 30 mins and Justin was sold. Ashley has great energy and is such a fun person. She was a great resource during the planning too. If I had a general question or wasn't sure about something (sometimes not even related to photography), I could email her and she would get back to me quickly.
We did an engagement session, which was great because she got to learn how we are. After we got the pictures back, I told her which ones were our favorites, which she used to get the sense of how we wanted our wedding day to be captured, so the wedding day was flawless.
So after planning this wedding ourselves with planning help from no one, I was really excited on the wedding day to turn to Ashley and say "you are in charge now" and she was fantastic. She and Joe were there right on time, ready to go. Everyone wants to talk to you and you want to talk to everyone, so it was so nice to have someone else in charge, and Ashley was so great because she wasn't bossy or commanding. She had her same fun attitude and kept the day moving with photography and worked off the photo list I gave her (I'm fairly certain this is standard for photographers, but if its not, another plus for Ashley!). Getting the bridal party pictures was seriously so fun, we really were laughing the whole time!
I can't wait to have another event so I can hire Fantail Photography again!
