Tim was the first thing I booked when I began wedding planning. Over the years I've seen plenty of his work to know that I HAD to have him and his team capturing every moment of our day!!! Ardent books up quickly and its obvious why.....they're AMAZING! the uniqueness and quality of their work surpasses anyone in the area!! They made our day so stress free and we can't wait to see the end results!!! :) Thanks for everything!

Ardent studio did such a great job capturing one of the most important days of our lives. I would hire them again for future events.

Tim is a pleasure to work with. I fell in love with his style of photography and knew he had to be our wedding photographer. He captured every part of our day beautifully. He is prompt, professional, and he makes being in front of a camera much less awkward. Highly recommended!

The best money I spent on the entire wedding!
Ardent studio was absolutely fabulous!! There was not a moment at the wedding that they were not there to capture! Tim was so great to work with and our pictures were amazing! I would recommend them 100%!! We had a blast at my formal shoot and at the wedding!

Ardent studio was hands down the best money I spent on my entire wedding. From my bridal portraits to the making of our wedding album, Tim was incredible. Ardent studios team was energetic, talented and the experience was incredible. I would recommend Ardent Studio to all brides.

Tim is very nice and professional. He always responded to questions in a timely manner. He handled our engagement session and the wedding. We are very pleased with our wedding album. It was beautiful. I would highly recommend his services!!

Tim and Ardent Studio never cease to amaze! Tim has an eye for beautiful photos and we were super pleased with our engagement and wedding photographs. Our friends and family still talk about how beautiful our photographs were from our wedding!

My husband and I got married in October 2012 and we absolutely LOVED Tim and Chris from Ardent Studio. They were calm, warm and easy to work with. At times, you didn't even know they were there. They were also very prompt, professional and communicated well. Tim even talked with the Rabbi prior to the wedding to make sure he knew when he could/couldn't take pics during the ceremony. We just got our photos and they were amazing. Definitely creative and captured all the great moments. We are so happy with them and can't wait to have some printed. Thank you Tim and Chris for making our wedding night so memorable with your beautiful photography.

We have been waiting for new words to come to us besides "amazing"; "stunning"; "best" ; ….. there are no other words, there are only tears of happiness as we look at the pictures from both our engagement session and our wedding as captured by Ardent Studio.
We would have to take a master's class in photography in order to obtain the vocabulary to properly complement both Tim Pham and Chris Pham on the pictures that were taken ... check out their website and you will see what I mean... you get lost in the beauty, the composition, the colors, layering, editing. They are truly gifted artists, they are who you want capturing your wedding day.
The professionalism that we experienced with both Tim and Chris, from the beginning to the end, was impeccable. From super prompt, excited communication to being instantly likable in person, they both seamlessly disappeared into the day to work the magic. They are also able to come forth with valuable "this is how it's usually done" experience in that time of chaos which in turn can wipe away that somewhat awkward moment and replace it with a beautiful picture!
We researched long and hard in order to give us (and our guests) "the NOLA experience" - we knew we had the best professionals to capture it. The pictures that Ardent Studio has given us are not merely pictures to us, they are precious gifts that we will treasure always.

My entire experience with Ardent Studio was PHENOMENAL and totally exceeded my expectations!! Our originally booked photographer realized that he had double booked our wedding date and cancelled on us. This definitely turned out to be a blessing in disguise! My mom, aunt, and I met with Tim for a consultation and all three of us were in total agreement that this was the one. His work spoke for itself and he had a personality that was unmatched. Finding the right person is very important because these are memories that you will cherish forever once the wedding is over. We are so happy that we picked Ardent Studio to capture all of our special moments and could not have imagined it any other way. Tim was extremely accommodating to us and our schedules which we appreciated since we live out of town. We took our engagement pictures, my bridals, and of course the entire wedding day with Ardent. ALL of our pictures came out A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Tim has a natural eye for capturing the moment in the most artistic and creative ways. He is very professional, down to earth, and has a true passion for photography. My husband is extremely camera shy but was completely at ease with Tim. He even said that he had so much fun, he wouldn't mind doing it again..which is definitely saying a lot for him!! The only bad thing about my experience that comes to mind is that we loved all of our shots so much that it made it next to impossible to narrow down the ones we wanted to edit! What a problem to have, huh?? :) I have had countless compliments on my pictures and people wanting to know who did this amazing work. Ardent Studio undeniably stands out above the rest..no doubt. If you want a photographer who will put his all into his work, truly care about his clients, and have gorgeous, unique pictures to remember your special day for a lifetime, Ardent Studio is the only way to go.

We just viewed our wedding photos for the first time, and I was blown away. They are BEAUTIFUL!! Tim Pham is amazing; a true artist. When you are posing for your bridal shots, it can be quite awkward (hips this way, chin that way, etc) but Tim makes you feel so comfortable assuring that they be beautiful (and I promise, the finished product does not look awkward AT ALL .... it looks so natural!). We had the challenge of being the first wedding after daylight savings time ended, so it was dark by 5:00 which resulted in nighttime photos. Well Tim did his homework ahead of time ... he actually came to our hotel a few days prior to the wedding to find some good spots to photograph me at night. The results were amazing. The photos on top of a balcony on Canal St. capturing all the city lights in the background look like something out of a magazine.
Tim is very professional and quick to respond to email, text, and phonecalls. I have heard horror stories about other photographers telling someone that their photos would be ready within a certain timeframe, only to not answer their phone for weeks while trying to avoid the client. This was never a concern with Tim. He told us our photos would be ready in 4-5 weeks, and he was right on the mark. At this point, we are just waiting on our DVD so we can get the photos printed, which we should have next week. Yesterday, I emailed Tim asking him for a high resolution copy of one of our favorites so that we could use it for our Christmas card. Again, Tim responded very quickly with the requested photo attached. I can't say enough good things. I hope that Tim expands his business beyond wedding & engagement photos so that we can use him in the future for family pics, maternity pics, etc.

We are so thankful that we found these guys! They did one of my best friends weddings and the finished product was breathtaking. We knew we wanted our big day to captured with the same attention to detail and overall incredible quality and style. Our wedding day was one big blur and if it were not for the amazing and abundant amount of photos we would probably have already forgotten a lot of it by now. Of all of the wedding expense this was by far the best investment we made! The dress, the flowers, the food, the decor....it was all stored, eaten, or trashed, but these precious photographs and the memories will last forever. We are so grateful to have had such a wonderful experience and the Ardent boys didn't miss a thing. Only after seeing the photos did I realize who was there and what was going on! They are so easy to work with, and I would recommend Ardent Studio to any one who really wants to capture the true beauty of whatever the special occasion in their life. I'm so glad we did.

I always knew photography is important to have, but I never truly knew until after the wedding was over. The day flew by so fast, I barely had time to take in all the details and all the things that went on. Thankfully, Ardent Studio was there at my wedding to capture all these moments for me, my husband, and my family. I barely remember anything that was going on until I looked at the pictures. That made me realized that my kids and grandkids will be looking at these pictures in the next 20+ years. I've talked to previous brides and they weren't satisfied with their photographers because they lacked detail pictures or the pictures looked ordinary. On the other hand, I couldn't be any happier with them. They exceeded my expectations. The pictures are timeless. And the moments they captured are priceless.

Tim and the crew @ Ardent Studio made our engagement and wedding day SO VERY special. As a wedding photographer myself, finding THE photographer was more stressful than finding THE groom ;) Tim is one of the greatest, most creative, and brilliant photographers I know.... and i know a lot of em'!! Choosing Ardent photography and making those guys drive to Texas and into the boonies was the best decision of our wedding. I had high expectations, and they exceeded them all.
I couldn't be happier with the images- I still can't stop looking at them. I've laughed, cried and everything in between! They captured great memories and special moments- I am still in awe of the emotion captured in their images. Their photographic art is all over the place in our house. We get compliments on our wall prints often. My friends are all taking the wedding plunge now and Ardent is everyones first choice. I could go on and on!!
As a photographer I am inspired-
As a client I am very pleased
And now as a friend, I feel blessed.
xoxoxo Haley & Brandon
ps- Brandon (groom) LOVED tim and the guys. He had a great time during our engagement session with them and at the wedding. That is rare for men- it is usually like pulling teeth!! ha ha

Tim was the first and only photographer I met with. After meeting Tim, there was no need to meet with any of the other photographers I had on my list. Immediately after I met him, we clicked and I knew he was the right choice for us. Besides the obvious, that his pictures are absolutely breathtaking and one of a kind, there were many other qualities that I absolutely loved about Tim and his brothers. I appreciated his laid back character, never in your face or pushy. No matter when I called, texted, or emailed, he always responded quickly and was willing to go above and beyond for us. After we took our engagement pictures, I was reassured that I had made the right decision. Our pictures were way beyond anything we could have imagined. I can't explain the amount of emails, text, and phone calls we received from family and friends after our pictures were posted. Everyone absolutely loved them and wanted to know who our photographer was. His work ethic and product are like no other. He is very detail oriented and has an eye for things that most photographers do not. The engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures came out amazaing! I wanted something different, more contemporary, and we got just that (while still providing some of the traditional photos to make my mom happy :)). Once you meet Tim, you will immediately know how passionate he is for his work. I never would have imagined that our pictures would be one of my favorite things about our wedding, but they absolutely are! Hands down, choosing Ardent Studio was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We weren't just satisified with what we got, but were blown away by the experience that Ardent Studio provided us!
