We chose Ashley Therese Photography for our engagement & wedding not only because of the amazing work we saw online, but we also wanted to support a young professional from our area. From the very first meeting, you will understand why choosing her for the Best Day Of Your Life will be your best decision ever.
Ashley went above and beyond from the minute we booked her. When asked, Ashley gave suggestions on engagement session outfits as well as (incredible) recommended vendors I had yet to book. Ashley also provided a "Wedding Day Timeline" to ensure a smooth morning the day of and also encouraged us as a couple to compile a list of "must-have" wedding shots to make sure no one was left out (she literally printed it out and brought it with her on our wedding day). Ashley was incredibly responsive and attentive to emails, and as the day got closer, scheduled phone meetings to make sure we were on the same page with the timelines and "must-have" pictures. Ashley's husband, Chris, is also with her the day of as an added photographer when needed. Chris effortlessly follows Ashley's direction, and his shots are impressive, too. They make an amazing team!
Ashley has a very natural way of making you feel extremely comfortable being photographed. My husband has always been one to not exactly enjoy taking pictures, but Ashley was a miracle worker in making him feel the most comfortable, in a nonchalant way. Ashley also has an eye for the "small moments", the candid shots that capture the most beautiful and intimate moments of a wedding ceremony or reception. These shots turned out to be some of our favorites!
Living in the world of technology, we're accustomed to viewing and sharing things immediately. Ashley did just that. The day after our wedding, she posted a GORGEOUS "sneak peek" followed by another "sneak peek" a week later. She was also quick to post even more photos on her blog while we were on our honeymoon. This gave us the opportunity to instantly see our photos, as well as share them with our family and friends. Ashley was insanely quick with delivering the rest of our photos, via USB which is also convenient.
I would highly recommend Ashley Therese Photography, not only due to the amazing work, but because she is a calm, organized, creative, and naturally talented lady. We were SO pleased with how effortlessly it all came together, and our pictures are out of this world. Can't say enough great things!! I look forward to another occasion where I can hire her to take more photographs! :)
We first came across Ashley and Chris at my husband's brother's wedding. We waited until his pictures were on Ashley's blog and then knew we had to book them. Ashley does a phenomenal job and has a great eye. She also has this amazing ability to just treat you like you've known each other for years. I mean, it makes all the difference when you're not used to having cameras on you. She made us feel at ease and comfortable w/ her friendly personality which helped so much. The pictures were gorgeous and the colors amazing. She really brought out the colors and along w/ Chris was able to take beautiful pictures in a dark aquarium where we had our reception. The album was beautifully produced too - it's a leather cover with really thick pages.
Ashley is not just a pro at taking gorgeous pictures, but she's a wedding pro! She was the one who told me and the girls to carry our flowers low when walking down the aisle. She was the one who told us what to do during the cake cutting. And when it turned out the flower delivery guy wasn't told to deliver the guys' flowers to the church, she was the one who didn't take a chance and wrote the address down for him. It really was like having another friend there, who happened to have a couple of nice cameras.
We're just so thankful that she and Chris were part of our day!
From the very start, Ashley checked off all of the boxes... I found her on the Knot, read reviews, set up a meeting, and knew she was "the one" not just when I looked through her sample albums and saw one from a girl I went to high school with, but when she said she was married at the same church I was going to be- my childhood church, one of the most important parts of the day that I wanted caputred perfectly.
Ashley was very helpful throughout the entire process- answering my questions (some crazy, some not even about the photography), offering suggestions, clearly communicating what she needed from me and how the day would flow, etc.
The second she and Chris came into my parents' house before I was about to get dressed, they took charge quietly behind the scenes, careful not to disrupt the giggling/preparations/little moments my mom/sister/bridesmaids and I were having- while still capturing them on film. They gave direction on where to go and how to pose- it was important to me that the photos look natural and organic, and she nailed that spot-on- I realized that sometimes those "natural" looks sometimes take a bit of direction to get the lighting right, make sure everything is in the frame that you want, etc.
Whatever they did while we took the photos, it was great, because we had more beautiful images than I thought we could.
We had a timing crisis and our window for group shots shrunk, but Ashley and Chris took charge lining up the shots, getting people for the next shots ready, and getting them done as quickly as possible... it was important to me that the family/bridal party enjoy cocktail hour.
The photos of just me and my husband were great- we finally realxed, and just walked around the grounds... Ashley gave us such a variety of photos that it took me two months to decide which to use for our thank you note.
The entire process was great, reassuring, and as easy as possible. All of our family and guests who have seen the photos think back on how great Ashley and Chris were that day, and how great the finished products are. My mother still tells me "that (hiring Ashley) was the best vendor decision you made".
I will call her in 25 years when we renew our vows...
My husband and I were so happy with everything Ashley brought to the table. From our initial Skype interview, and her bubbly personality, we knew that she was the perfect match for us. Our engagement photos were top notch, and we received endless compliments. The wedding photos were also as amazing as we hoped they would be. Ashley was both professional and a ball of fun to work with. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality photos. Could not have been happier.
Ashley is in one word AMAZING! Her husband Chris is equally as AMAZING. Both are the utmost professionals and beyond talented. I saw Ashley’s work probably a year before I was even engaged and I knew then I had to have her as my wedding photographer. Everything Ashley and Chris did for us was above and beyond what anyone would expect. Ashley provided me with checklists that were so helpful. We talked on the phone 2 weeks before the wedding and went over every detail of the day, I so needed that and felt so much better after I talked to her. Even the night before she called me just to say, “everything ok? need anything? see you tomorrow!” I thought that was just a great touch. And on the wedding day, two words, SMOOTH SAILING. Ashley and Chris, captured every moment of our special day and when we look back at these pictures, not only will we remember what a great day it was, but we will remember the 2 awesome people that captured our day PERFECTLY. You guys are the best! Love you both.

I could not be happier about having Ashley and Chris be the photographers at my wedding.. Not only are they so nice but the job that they did exceeded my expectations! There are so many beautiful shots it is so hard to choose which ones to frame. I highly recommend Ashley to any newly engaged couple I meet!
She was also so helpful when planning the time frame for the day, I am so glad I listen to her advice.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about Ashley and Chris! They both added to the "special" that made our wedding a truley special day!
Of all of Ashley's amazing qualities, the one thing that stood out to us the most was her "proactiveness". She was one of very few vendors we had to follow up with. She was ALWAYS ahead of the game and provided us with the best advice along the way.
As a "involved" bride, I really appreciated Ashley always knowing exactly what to say and do. For example: 2 days prior to the wedding she called to see if there were any last minute changes -- and ofcourse there were. My husbands grandmother was sick and not going to make it to the wedding or the pictures, she saved us all the embarassment of "calling" grandma up for pics only to find she wasn't there.
Throughout the day, for a series of reasons, we started to veer from our timeline, but Ashley kept us on track and found a way to make all the pictures work in enough time to give everyone the chance to celebrate.
Also, I can't take this platform without mentioning how positive Ashley is -- it is evident that she loves what she does. Her positivity comes through in all her being and that made spending the day with her all the better. :)
My fiance and I decided very early in our wedding planning that our photographer was going to be the one aspect of our wedding that we were going to invest the most money in (aside from venue). Having friends in the business, and wanting them to attend the wedding instead of working it, I looked to them for recommendations.
Ashley was wonderful from the beginning. She made us feel very comfortable (asking us questions and baking us homemade chocolate chip cookies). We knew we HAD to have her.
We had our engagement session with her and LOVED her photos. She was really able to capture US. For our wedding, we had her and a second photographer (her husband, Chris). They are a wonderful, well-oil machine. They made our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera and captured some great shots. We can't wait to see the rest of them!
ABSOLUTLY AMAZING. By far the most stunning pictures I could have asked for. They were both great to work with. Always responded quickly. I have already recommended to all my friends and would highly recommend to others!
Words can't describe how phenomenal Ashley and her husband Chris are. They are a dynamic duo. Not only are the photographs incredible, but they are an absolute pleasure to work with. We were thrilled with our engagement session, and didn't think that anything could be improved upon, but Ashley and Chris really rose to the occasion at our wedding. After seeing Ashley's blog preview of our wedding, I'm confident that no detail was left un-photographed. They are incredibly professional and detail oriented, and amazingly friendly. I would recommend them a thousand times over!
We are so thrilled that we chose Ashley as our wedding photographer! Our wedding photos and album came out absolutely gorgeous! Everyone I have shown my album to cannot stop talking about what an amazing photographer I chose for my wedding.
I booked Ashley over a year and a half before my wedding. As soon as I saw her blog, I was in love with her pictures and I was so excited to have her photograph our wedding. My husband and I did an engagement session as well, and we were so glad we did! Not only do we love our pictures from the engagement session, but it helped us to feel much more comfortable in front of the camera so we were all set to have our pictures taken on our big day!
Ashley and her husband Chris were so wonderful to work with. They were very professional but also lots of fun! My husband and I are so happy that we will always have the amazing photos that Ashley took to remember the most wonderful day of our lives. I highly recommend choosing Ashley Therese Photography for your wedding!
I myself am a photographer so when looking for a photographer for my wedding....I thought I would be looking for one forever. To me nothing was or is more important (vendor-wise) than capturing these precious moments behind a lens on the most important day of our lives. To freeze these precious moments in time and have them to look at until we are old and gray. A friend told me about Ashley. She was the FIRST photographer I met with and contacted and I didn't need to look any further. She was it. I knew it the second I met her.
Not only is her personality contagious but her passion for photography shines through every image she captures. She is amazing. What I love most is the pictures of Jeff and I. Her and Chris (who we absolutely adore) made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Their love for one another shines through their work. The entire bridal party was amazed at their organization and the results were nothing short of amazing. We could not be happier.
Ashley was very involved and attentive from the very beginning. She made me feel very comfortable that we would get what we wanted and I would have no worries for the wedding. And it turns out that was the case and that her and Chris were amazing for the big day.
Ashley Therese Photography says , “For me, it’s not all about the big moments…To me, the real memories and story lie in the small moments and details…these are the moments that create the story.” Ashley and her husband, Chris, do an amazing job capturing every moment of any event. My husband and I used Ashley Therese Photography for our engagement photos, my bridal shower, and our wedding. The particular amount of detail that she captures in each event is unbelievable. She truly has the ability to tell one’s love story through a series of photos. Ashley and Chris are energetic and professional. They have the ability to make any couple feel comfortable and beautiful. She says, “There is no other place I would rather be than behind the camera, capturing these moments and the fabulousness of my clients.” They have a passion for what they do and it is quite obvious both in their actions and in the work that they produce. They are creative and they allow each couple to personalize their photos in their own way. An event, such as a wedding, is a beautiful, emotional, hectic, awesome day that goes by way too fast. However, a photographer that does what Ashley can do, allows each couple to relive their wedding (or any event) on a daily basis. If you are looking for quality, professionalism, creativity and detail, Ashley Therese photography is your best choice!
We heard about Ashley through my sister-in-law. One of her friends had used her as their photographer. I looked her up online and instantly fell in love. At the initial meeting at her house it felt like we had known her and been friends with her for years. We met with her and only her and decided to book her. We couldn’t have been happier with our decision. Her passion for what she does is evident from beginning to end of the planning and day of the wedding. Our pictures came out amazing; there was not one that we didn’t love. Ashley and Chris are an awesome couple and it was a blast working with them. I can not recommend her enough!
I first heard about Ashley Therese Photography from a friend who had attended a wedding that Ashley photographed. My friend shared some of those pictures with me and I was absolutely blown away by how stunning her work was! After seeing even more of her incredible pictures on her website and blog, my husband and I couldn’t wait to meet her. Once we met with her, we knew she was the one. She took a genuine interest in learning about us (how we met, got engaged, etc. – so unlike other vendors) and really listened to what we wanted, which we now know is how she is able to tell such amazing stories about each of her couples. The pictures from our engagement shoot were stunning and reflected exactly what we asked for – creative, but elegant. We received so many compliments from friends and family that we couldn’t wait to work with her again on our wedding day. In those stressful weeks before the wedding, Ashley was great – she followed up with me regarding our shot list and timing, offering much appreciated advice along the way. When the big day came, Ashley and her husband Chris were there to capture every moment. They were punctual, professional, and worked so well with our videographer and other vendors throughout the day. They always had a smile on their faces and were so easy to work with - They both have a way of making you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. It’s clear they are passionate about their work. We had such an amazing experience working with them and are such fans of their work that we are planning a Rock the Dress shoot! We highly recommend Ashley Therese Photography, you will not regret it!
I don't even know where to start! We cannot say enough good things about Ashley (and her awesome husband Chris!) It's hard to put into words, but I'll try!
My husband and I found Ashley Therese Photography through a friend -- she had posted the most amazing wedding photos on Facebook and we just knew that we had to have her photographer shoot our wedding. Enter Ashley!
At our first meeting, Ashley greeted us with fresh baked cookies, a fantastic portfolio, and such a genuine interest in who we were and what kind of wedding we wanted. Ashley made us feel so comfortable and excited to work with her; we knew she was the one!
Ashley actually shot three events for us: our engagement photos, wedding and a FABULOUS rock the dress session. Throughout each event, she was always available and open to answer our questions, listen to our requests and suggestions, and help us plan. She is so generous with her time, responds quickly and comprehensively to email, and is ever energetic, thoughtful, professional and creative.
Also, Ashley is always up for anything! Our engagement and rock the dress shoots were a little unusual -- the former at a grocery store (crowded with customers), the latter at an apple orchard (in freezing weather, at sunrise!). But, Ashley is so ready to go, no matter what time, weather, whatever!
She is always on time, totally positive and just makes shooting FUN -- even if you have been on your feet in white satin heels for eight hours and counting! She really knows how to make her couples feel comfortable, beautiful, and natural. She will capture such GREAT candids and sweet moments -- she "gets' it, she gets her clients. -- she will know when to snap just-that-right-moment-and-glance and somehow capture in photograph exactly who you are, as individuals and as a couple. Posed photos are also timeless, natural and just beautiful.
Oh, and her album designs? So elegant and creative. She will use photos in ways you never thought possible to capture not only photos of you and your guests, but also the feel, mood and theme of your day.
Ashley and Chris are just awesome people, forget just photographers :D. You will WANT them around on your wedding day, and I can't think of any better qualification for the person(s!) shooting your most important day!!!
Ashley and her husband did an amazing job at capturing all the details of our wedding day! They were professional, punctual and easy going. She is very creative and artistic. Overall, I would recommend her to anyone getting married!
From the first day I contacted Ashley (over 2 years ago) she has be unbelieveable! We set up a day to meet to go over everything we where looking for and I knew I have found the absolute best photographer for our dream day! Ashley and chris captured every tiny detail. They are fabulous to work with and make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, Its like we have known them forever.
Ashley (and her husband) do an incredible job! From your engagement shoot, to your wedding day, to the production of the perfect album afterwards is just amazing. Ashley makes you feel so comfortable even though most of us are out of our element posing for pictures like professional models. Her work belongs in magazines, and people have seen our wedding album and could not believe the quality of the photos. I can't be any more confident in my recommendation of Ashley and you will not regret it!
