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.

Super talented and likeable—-could you ask for more?!

I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. Words can't even express how wonderful Ashley and Joe were! My mom was a bit difficult with the wedding to say the least. Ashley changed our schedule last minute to please my mom and make sure I was not stressed. She captured our engagement photos and our wedding photos. She was nonintrusive, but really captured the feeling of the wedding and some beautiful candids. I haven't even gotten all the pictures back yet (just the sneak peek) and I'm head over heels IN LOVE with every single one. I usually HATE photos of myself, but she made me feel BEAUTIFUL. She is fun to work with, made me feel comfortable, and really just made the whole thing run so smoothly. She KNOWS what she is doing and captured some GORGEOUS shots. She even did a first touch with us which was just ADORABLE and her idea because we didn't want to do a first look. All other photographers gave us SO much trouble about that and how we weren't going to be able to get all our photos done in time. Ashley swept us right up, took all the photos after the wedding, and even had us back for the end of our cocktail hour. I could not have picked a better photographer! I will be going back to her when I have a kid FOR SURE! Read Less

Ashley was so great and worked with what we wanted. We're very nontraditional and she let us have a lot of fun with the photos. And so much patience with my big family ;) Made it all so easy. Thanks so much Ashley and Joe!

Ashley Black
I am an intense, driven small business owner who absolutely loves my job. No, really, I do -- I want to do this for the rest of my life! Always a creative spirit, traveling the world honed my passion for my craft and founding a company based around it cemented it. To be able to support myself and my incredible, fierce daughter with it still astounds me daily. In whatever free time I can scrounge, I am a major geek. I like to play video games or Dungeons and Dragons, read comics and fantasy novels, and go to conventions. My kid is even named after a flower from the Lord of the Rings!

Phenomenal is the only word I can think of to describe Ashley and her talent!
She is the easiest person to work with so responsive and personable. We knew from our first phone call with her that we would get along great.
Now her talent is another level. When we saw her photos online, we obviously loved them which is why we chose her to be our photographer. Then when we received our photos, just WOW! We were just blown away! They are gorgeous! Ashley and her second shooter Joe captured every moment beautifully! As everyone says , our wedding day went by so fast. I’m so glad we have these incredible photos to help us relive the day.
