Chris Genovese is everything you want in a wedding photographer and then some. From our initial phone call to the last shot on the wedding day, he was phenomenal. He was extremely professional, knew what he was talking about, and made sure we knew exactly what we were going to... Read More get. We didn't actually meet him in person until our engagements but he was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable throughout the shoot despite having just met. Those pictures were amazing and the work he and Lauren did for our wedding were absolutely stunning! I can't stop looking at the pictures; every time I go through them I love them more and more. They were able to capture every important moment of our day without being in the way. You will hardly know he's there! You can feel the emotions of the day through the photographs. We couldn't have asked for better and can't thank them enough! We loved working with him so much we recommended him to my brother-in-law and his fiance, so we have the pleasure of seeing Chris again in January! All in all, if you want beautiful pictures and a photographer with a fantastic personality, look no further. This is it.

Absolutely awesome photographers!

I cannot begin to say enough great things about Genovese Ashford Studios. When I began planning my wedding, I decided on three things that were important to me for our wedding day -- the band, the food and the photographers. I spent countless hours researching photographers and... Read More scheduled appointments with several too. I kept coming back to Genovese Ashford Studios, and when I sat down with Chris and Kim, my decision was easy -- which is HUGE in wedding planning! They are so professional, creative and personable. With that being said, I highly recommend Genovese Ashford Studios -- they take the worry away from you. All brides are burdened with stress when it comes to planning a wedding, and having the right people in place eases that. Genovese Ashford work with you to capture YOUR vision and will marry that with their creativity -- delivering exactly what you want. Kim shot my bridals in downtown Baton Rouge. It was such a wonderful (and freezing) experience, and her talent made it very hard to select a portrait image. She made it the afternoon fun, relaxing and special. When we left the session, both my mom and I said a ton of weight was lifted off our shoulders because we knew Kim was going to be such a huge help for the wedding. On our wedding day, Kim and Meredith were awesome. From the second they walked in, I was at ease -- I didn't have to ask for anything. We discussed everything beforehand, and they were able to capture our day perfectly while keeping everything on schedule (which was important to me). Even though our reception went by in a blink, I still remember Kim sitting on one of our groomsmen's shoulders -- shooting everyone on the dance floor from an elevated view. Those pictures were so great! Again, I cannot say enough great things about these people. Their style, creativity, offerings / packages are great -- but what makes them awesome is the way the work with you to capture one of the most special days of your life.

Chris and his team are simply the best! From the moment we started to search for our wedding photographers, we were sold immediately after meeting Chris for the first time.
