Ashley blessed us with photos that we will cherish forever!
Ashley is so incredibly talented, not to mention the sweetest! We are so happy with all of our wedding photos. She stood outside on the coldest, rainiest day in January to capture our special day. I was so worried that our photos would be compromised due to the weather, but the lighting was absolutely stunning and we have photos that we will cherish always. We are beyond blessed to have found Ashley to capture our special day. I highly recommend her for your wedding or any other special occasion. She is an absolute pleasure to work with!Sent on 05/09/2019

Ashley is fantastic!
Ashley is incredibly talented, and we could not be happier that she shot our engagement photos and will be our wedding photographer. I was nervous about having our engagement photos taken, since neither of us had ever had professional photos done before- but it ended up being such a fun day that we’ll remember forever. Ashley was flexible and able to come up to shoot in our home in DC and around our neighborhood. From the moment she walked through the door I felt at ease. Not only is she so warm and kind, but she is incredibly talented. She managed to perfectly capture our relationship on film, with us laughing in our kitchen and nearby park, and even wrangle our 7 month puppy to pose perfectly. Every single photo is fantastic, and very "us" without being over-posed, while still making us look the best we have in our entire lives. Our friends and family can't get over how great the photos turned out. We couldn't recommend Ashley more, and now can't wait to see the magic she does for our wedding!Sent on 09/16/2019

Ashley was a dream come true! On the hottest, most humid day of the summer, Ashley made our engagement shoot a fun and memorable experience. She was a consummate professional. Her vision for our photos was amazing, seeing beauty and opportunity in the most unique ways. We couldn’t be happier with the way our photos turned out and can’t wait to work with her again for our wedding in the spring!Sent on 09/19/2019

Ashley Cox did an amazing job as my wedding photographer!
I would highly recommend Ashley Cox Photography! I just received my wedding photos, and I am blown away. She captured each moment beautifully, and I can't wait to hang them on my wall and send them to family and friends. Ashley is also a joy to work with! I asked her tons of random wedding questions, because I was new to the wedding planning process, and she always answered me right away. On the day of, everyone loved getting to know Ashley. I am so glad she was a part of my wedding day, and I will cherish her photographs for a long time.Sent on 08/28/2019

Ashley is incredible.
Do yourself a favor and hire Ashley for your wedding, event, family photos, etc. - she is absolutely AMAZING!! We hired her for our June wedding and it was the best money we spent, hands down. Everything from coordinating our engagement shoot to planning the shots we wanted at the wedding was seamless. Ashley is not just a wedding photographer; she is a true artist and has an incredible talent for styling shoots on the fly, troubleshooting in challenging environments, and making everyone feel SO comfortable. One of my main concerns with our photos was that we would look stiff - with Ashley that was not an issue. She had us laughing and feeling so relaxed from the very beginning. On our wedding day, Ashley was extremely efficient and worked around our desire to have the first look at the ceremony, while also somehow getting all the shots we wanted plus a lot more. We even made the last 15 minutes of our cocktail party! The photos are art-quality, timeless, and everything we hoped they would be - she captured the day exactly as we remembered it, even the crazy-packed dance floor! I really cannot recommend Ashley enough, we will absolutely be using her again in the future!!Sent on 08/30/2019

Phenomenal experience with this absolutely wonderful photographer!
I got married 2 months ago, and my husband and entire family simply cannot say enough amazing things about Ashley! We first met her during our engagement shoot about one year before our wedding, and she was just the kindest, most fun person to work with. We instantly felt so comfortable with her, and we absolutely loved our engagement pictures. She stayed in touch with us and answered all our questions in the months leading up to our wedding. On our wedding day, we were both so excited to see her again. You can tell that she truly is passionate about her work and puts her whole heart into every single wedding. She made us feel so special all day, and we had a fantastic time taking pictures together. When our wedding photos came back, we just could not stop smiling looking through them. I still can't stop looking at them! They are so incredibly special. She captured our most magical day perfectly - seeing each other for the first time during our first look, the expression on my dad's face when he saw me in my wedding dress, gorgeous pictures of our ceremony with the Blue Ridge backdrop, beautiful family portraits, the pure joy on our faces during our first dance, and the fun everyone had during our reception. We, along with our families, will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you Ashley for capturing my most favorite memories so beautifully!Sent on 07/28/2019

Ashley is absolutely amazing! We worked with her on our engagement and wedding and couldn't have been happier with how everything went. She is so lovely to work with and does a great job of making you feel comfortable! I hope to work with her again in the future!Sent on 02/07/2019

Ashley Cox Photography is Amazing!
We were blown away by the quality of our wedding photographs that we received from Ashley. Ashley photographed our wedding on 12/1/18 and the quality AND quantity of photographs that we received was absolutely amazing. Opening my photos was like Christmas morning all over again, but better! Ashley captured all of the most memorable moments of my wedding and more. I highly recommend Ashley Cox Photography as her romantic, unique style truly creates some of the most beautiful photos I've ever seen.Sent on 01/22/2019

We love Ashley!
We had the complete pleasure of working with Ashley. We could not be happier with how our engagement and wedding photographs turned out! We spent several months searching for our photographer because it was so important to us to find someone we trusted to preserve our wedding day for a lifetime. Once we started talking with Ashley, it was clear how passionate she is and how much she truly cares about her clients. From the beginning through to the end, Ashley offered endless support, advice, and guidance.Sent on 01/14/2019
Ashley captured the magic of our wedding day perfectly! She listened to our ideas and captured everything we wanted and more. Looking at the photographs instantly brings us back to that moment, and we are forever grateful for Ashley’s beautiful work.

Amazing wedding photographer!
Ashley was recommended to us by our venue, and I knew from my first phone call with her that I wanted her to be our photographer. Not only was her portfolio incredible (it truly speaks for itself), but I really appreciated the way she approached the conversation. She took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for and worked with us to come up with a package that was best for us. When we met her in person for the first time during our engagement shoot, she instantly made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was so much fun to work with. We felt the same during our actual wedding day, too. Ashley is truly an artist and it shows in all of the photos that she takes. We will treasure the beautiful photos from our wedding forever. We feel so lucky that we were able to have her be part of our special day and highly recommend her!Sent on 01/04/2019

House Mountain Inn Wedding
When researching photographers for our wedding, Ashley was quickly my top choice just based on her photos. After contacting her to see about cost and availability, she was kind and genuine and willing to work with us to get a package that was right for us. We live in the Baltimore area but loved the beauty of the House Mountain Inn. She worked with us to create a package that did not include engagement pictures but instead included something else.Sent on 12/04/2018
When our wedding day came, it poured all afternoon. Ashley was very flexible and calm through the hectic prewedding pictures. She moved up our first look so that we could get some pictures before the rain started. Luckily, our venue had a huge porch, and we were still able to get beautiful pictures despite the rain. I would recommend Ashley to anyone looking for a kind and quality photographer.

We chose Ashley to photograph our wedding and could not be happier with our experience. From our first phone call, we felt so confident in Ashley's ability and portfolio that we didn't even interview any other photographers. Ashley was so easy to work with at every phase of the planning process and even helped us solidify our day-of timeline to ensure she got every shot we wanted. On the day-of, Ashley and her assistant were on time, professional, and so calm despite the last minute ceremony changes due to inclement weather. She is so talented and directed the photos so well, which helped us feel comfortable and natural posing. We got our photos back SO fast, and every single one is beautiful. We cannot recommend Ashley enough and are already planning to have her shoot our headshots soon.Sent on 10/05/2018

Beautiful photos, great to work with
Ashley is a really sweet lovely person. We were a little nervous about having our engagement photos taken, but she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Our wedding had a sort of organic, overgrown woodland magic theme, and Ashely completely saw our vision and showcased all the design elements we were really proud of. But more importantly, she took soooo many amazing photos that captured the feeling of the day and the emotions we were all going through. We didn't have a videographer and honestly didn't need one because we have so many photos. I've had many many compliments on my wedding photos and how professional and high quality they are.Sent on 02/07/2019

We were thrilled that we chose Ashley to be our wedding photographer. Not only is she immensely talented, but she was fun to be with and brought a fantastic energy to each moment. She truly knows how to find and capture natural light to make each photo magical. We would highly recommend her to anyone!Sent on 08/16/2018

When we were looking for a photographer for our engagement photos, my (then) fiancé and I came across Ashley's work on Instagram. The first thing that we noticed was how her pictures all seemed to have a personality to them that we couldn't find anywhere else. There are a thousand beautiful places to take pictures in Charlottesville, but something about her way of shooting those places really distinguished her work from everyone else's. We could not have been more thrilled with the results of our engagement photos. We both loved working with her. Just based on how easy it was to be ourselves when we were with her, we made her promise to do our wedding as well...even though we had no clue what the pictures looked like yet. We were not disappointed.Sent on 07/18/2018
Our wedding pictures were everything that we could've hoped for and more. Ashley was so wonderful in the way she handled the event. She is professional and efficient, while at the same time warm and enthusiastic. I have been to too many weddings where it feels like the photographer is taking the spontaneity out of the event, or forcing everyone into totally unnatural situations, making everyone uncomfortable and/or annoyed in the process. There was never a time where she took anyone out of the moment; on the contrary, she helped to create so many amazing moments for us. There is absolutely no one that we would have rather had working with us to shoot such a beautiful day in our lives together.
We really cannot do her justice with a few paragraphs. Please look at her work to see for yourself. We will certainly be begging her to come see us, wherever we end up in the world, to shoot our next big life event. She is amazing.

Ashley is the absolute best. My husband and I are extremely happy with how our photos turned out and with how quickly we received them after the wedding. Ashley was able to unintrusively capture all of the small and big moments throughout the day and was easy to work with throughout the entire process. She is quick to respond, thoughtful in her approach, and has a laid-back and calming presence. We highly recommend her!Sent on 06/22/2018

After getting engaged, choosing our photographer was our first step in planning the wedding of our dreams. My husband and I are both fine art majors, so we prioritized photography above all else. As a naturally shy person, the thought of trying to take romantic photos made me anxious! I cannot express enough how comfortable Ashley made me feel from our engagements photos to our wedding day, and all the moments in between. I was absolutely thrilled with our engagements photos and even more in love, if that’s even possible, with our wedding photos. Ashley’s photographs perfectly captured all of the beautiful emotions I was feeling. I am so grateful for Ashley’s talent and kindness throughout the whole experience. I have received dozens and dozens of compliments on the photos. And now that our wedding day has passed, I am so thankful that I will always have these special photos to reminisce on arguably the best day of my life.Sent on 03/05/2018

Among the hundreds of photographers you could get for a special occasion, Ashley really stands apart from the rest. Beyond her energetic personality, responsiveness and professionalism, her passion for photography shines through every picture she takes. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley for our engagement session and were also lucky to have her as part of our wedding. We can honestly say that there is not one image that she gave us that we didn't love. Every image she takes is thoughtful and captured wonderfully within her unique style -- it is so clear that Ashley treats every single image that she takes as a piece of art. If you want a genuine photographer that can capture emotion, colors and your most special moments, we could not recommend Ashley more.Sent on 03/04/2018

Ashley was amazing! My husband and I put photography as one of our top priorities for our wedding. She went above and beyond everything we wanted (or even dreamed to be possible) from start to finish. At our engagement shoot, my husband was super nervous about a photo shoot — and, therefore, I was nervous the pictures would show the nerves and not capture “us”. But Ashley put us both at ease and the pictures beautifully captured real smiles and laughs + gorgeous backgrounds. The photos at the rehearsal dinner and wedding were also unbelievable. The weekend was perfect, and I can’t thank Ashley enough for capturing that perfection in pictures that we will save forever!Sent on 04/08/2018

Like all newlyweds, we were eager to see our wedding photos, hoping Ashley had managed to get some decent shots. When our prints arrived (in a hand-crafted wooden box), we were blown away. The photos were breathtaking, and we were astonished at the sheer quantity—it was an embarrassment of riches. Ashley is talented, efficient and incredible to work with. In short: she captured the romance and magic of our wedding day. And then some.Sent on 02/25/2018

She is so talented and is always finding the perfect shot while also making sure everyone is comfortable and having fun both during our wedding and engagement shoot!

Choosing Ashley to capture our wedding was the best decision we could have made for our special day. From first talking to her on the phone, her kindness was evident . A few weeks later when my then fiancé and I went to our engagement pictures with her, we were so thankful that she was so fun and encouraging. We had such a great time and the photos were amazing. Every step of the way throughout the wedding planning process, she was more than willing to help in any and every aspect. On the wedding day she was comforting, encouraging, timely, and a joy to be around. And her pictures are STUNNING. Absolutely love Ashley and would recommend her to ANYONE!Sent on 11/21/2017

We are so happy that we had Ashley as our photographer. She is incredibly talented, sweet, helpful, and organized, and makes everyone very comfortable when she is shooting.

I would recommend her without any hesitation!Sent on 03/04/2018

Ashley and I were connected through a mutual contact and I couldn't be more thankful. I was living in England at the time of my engagement while also planning me and my now husband's wedding abroad. My husband and I got married in my hometown, Williamsburg, VA, and having Ashley capture our wedding was so special because the quality of her photos are clear and classic as well as unique and purposeful with every shot. Ashley is one of the best photographers out there to work with. She makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed while taking photos and she is SO joyful! It's hard not to catch that joyful spirit when taking photos. I highly recommend Ashley to anyone because she is professional while also relatable. She is contactable while also organized. She always makes sure to respond and deliver on time. She cares about the detail and she cares about each of her clients. I highly recommend Ashley Cox Photography for all the above reasons. Thank you Ashley for everything!Sent on 03/06/2018
