Gary is spectacular!
No words will do justice to the incredible experience we had working with Gary Ashley and his team. We were a bit picky in choosing our photographer and wanted someone low key who would blend in and focus on candid moments. Gary totally nailed it - not to mention he is lovely to work with and so easygoing, and lightened up the mood of the day so that everyone was relaxed. The photos were spectacular and exceeded our wildest expectations... he captured the most special, split-second moments and really captured the feeling of the weekend in a way we cannot thank him enough for. I cannot recommend him strongly enough... JUST AMAZING!Sent on 04/01/2020

On Dacia:Sent on 11/30/2016
Our wedding day was in the midst of an insane heatwave, and the most desirable floor for photos was not air-conditioned. We were on tight timelines. This easily could have created a frantic, stressful atmosphere, but thanks to Dacia, we were all able to make the best of it and totally enjoy ourselves. In the 8+ hours she spent with us, Dacia exhibited constant cheer, calming presence, and professional demeanor. Her organization and conviviality kept us grounded, laid-back, and most importantly, ourselves. Simply put, she was an absolute delight to work with. I don't think anyone else could've kept my husband and I as relaxed and high-spirited as Dacia did. Heat aside, the day was absolutely magical, and I credit Dacia for playing the largest part in creating our euphoric, enchanted mood.
On our photos:
Dacia is the definition of a true artist. Our photos are stunning. In addition to capturing every detail of the wedding, she captured every poignant moment too. The vibe that emanates from the photos so perfectly reflects the mood of our wedding that just by looking at the shots, you feel as if you are there. Her shots, angles and lighting made us feel like we were in a Vogue photoshoot! But the expressions and glances she captured of me and my husband are purely us. This mixture of true artistic talent with an innate ability to bring out the true essence of her subjects are what makes Dacia so unique and special. We can't sing her praises enough.

We can't say enough good things about the bi-costal wonder that is the Wedding Artists Collective! On a friend's recommendation, we hired Gary Ashley to photograph our wedding at Brooklyn Winery and are so, so happy we did! Hiring Gary for our New York wedding though he lives in California (and we wouldn't be able to meet face to face prior to the day) could have been viewed as a gamble. But It was clear from the first phone call we had with Gary that no matter the geological distance, he was the perfect person to capture our day. He felt like an old friend by the end of the phone call, remembering details about us both. Gary seems genuinely in awe of weddings and gives off loving vibes. He has an incredibly laid back style that went perfectly with the relaxed attitude we wanted for our wedding. He let us do things at our pace and was there to catch the story as it was unfolding. He was able to capture both the moments and the details of our day with impeccable timing and artistic vision. Throughout the planning process and the actual wedding day, Gary (and Lisa)'s positivity, warmth, and professionalism was reassuring and made us feel at ease. The photos we have now are incredible and unforgettable, and we, our friends and family all love them! Gary and his second shooter Cadence Kennedy were able to put a special touch on our moments that give them a classic, timeless quality. The more we look at them, the more we love them. We can relive our wedding day whenever we want by looking at the story of the day captured by Gary (which at this stage is about 5-6 times a day!). We really can't express enough how amazing our photos look and how much we would recommend Gary, Lisa, and the Wedding Artist's Collective!!!Sent on 11/26/2015
