For couples who want the documentary feel of visual anthropology, who love color & energy, & who are unique and want their uniqueness captured in their wedding images, Wide Eyed Studios is the photographer for them. Weddings are about who you are, not some romantic ideal, & that is what we capture in our photography.

5 star wedding photography
Wide Eyed Studios was recommended to me on Facebook among a host of other Philadelphia area wedding photographers. I'm not into the washed out, filtered look, so I was specifically looking for a photographer that captured color and emotion well - and Ashley delivered. She was awesome leading up to the big day, making sure that she had a clear idea of what we wanted, and the day of she showed up early (always helpful to an anxious bride) and was so friendly and engaging. I'm so in love with the photos we got - worth every single penny and then some.Sent on 10/20/2019

Ashley did the photography for my brothers wedding and not only did we adore her product (absolutely gorgeous photos) but we also fell in love with Ashley herself. So was so nice throughout that whole process. So we were already sold and knew we wanted to utilize her as well. Could not be happier. She was so easy to work with. On the day of the wedding she was an absolute joy and we felt so comfortable saying what we wanted and didn't want . So receptive. and per usual her work is absolutely phenomenal. Blow away by the photos.Sent on 11/18/2018
