As a fellow photographer, I am very picky about my images and I didn't know what to expect when I hired Ashleigh to do a photo session for my business refresh.
When I met her my concerns quickly went away. She made me feel at ease and comfortable and it was reflected in the images.
I can say that was my best photo session I have ever had done. She was a true pro in dealing with a challenging location and oppressive heat on the day we shot.
After the session I was even more impressed as my images were amazing AND delivered within 2 days.
I would, enthusiastically recommend Ashleigh's photographic services and when my business images need a refresh, I already know where I'll be going.
KEISHA & DAVID CHEEKS
I'm not even sure where to begin. So I will start with a simple THANK YOU. Thank you for capturing such beautiful memories of my husband and I. Thank you for taking us back down memory lane. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to relive such intimate moments in our lives. Your energy, your vibe, and everything about you and your services was nothing short of phenomenal. As I looked over all of the images, I couldn't fight back the tears as they began to flow from my eyes. I've never understood the term "a picture is worth a thousand words" until now. Thank you to you and your team for making David and I feel so special but most importantly for rekindling our love for one another. Everything was perfect! I've now had the opportunity to be in the presence of one of the best photographers.

The highlight of my experience was the comfort, peace of mind, and quality she provided. She made everyone so comfortable! Even my family from Chicago (they’re a tough crowd) came up to me the day after and said “That photographer!!! Now SHE knows what she’s doing!!”. Everyone talked about how professional and pleasant she was. She was probably the only vendor I never had to worry about or ask for anything or tell to do anything, she did her thing without any direction that day.
She worked with me during the planning process to get everything she needed for the day, including a list of pictures I wanted, formals my mom wanted, and wishes of me and Don. We didn’t want to take first look pics, and she made it work for us, and we did first touch pictures that came out BEAUTIFUL. Even our engagement pictures were exactly how I imagined, and VERY fun. When we laughed in pictures, it wasn’t staged, she was really making us laugh. One thing I noticed during our engagement shoot was that she took pictures when we looked the most natural, something I don’t see very often, and appreciated.
The main reasons I’d recommend Ashleigh are the quality of her work and her professionalism as a photographer.
You truly feel like you are in great hands with her. The one thing I’d say will help you make the best of your time working with her, is to really listen to her recommendations, while still making her tips your own. Something as small as her suggesting one of us wear a pop of color during engagement photos really made a huge difference and I would definitely say is one of her signature moves. She’s AMAZING!

From the first time my husband and I met with Ashleigh we were blown away by her professionalism, knowledge and love of photography. It was during our first session for our engagement photos that we saw her passion and creativity as she went above and beyond to make our experience one to remember. From that day forward with all the many stressors that come with wedding planning, photography was one aspect in which we did not need to worry about. Before, during and after our wedding day our experiences has remained the same with Ashleigh. Not only are the photographs timeless, elegant and hanging in our home but, the experience with a very professional, energetic and most of all authentic. I have/will always recommend Ashleigh as she is truly an amazing and the best at what she does.

We initially worked with Ashleigh for our engagement photos. We discussed with her the theme we had in mind for our photos and she shared our vision and the photos came out beautifully. It was so easy working with Ashleigh and it just felt like we were our regular selves enjoying time with friends. We were so pleased that we decided to work with her for our wedding photos and we do not regret it in the least! Ashleigh really has an eye for capturing the shot, even those candid moments, all while having fun doing it. Thanks Ashleigh!

I was a fan of Ashleigh's work before I had the opportunity (i.e. reason) to work with her. When I got engaged, I knew I had to work with Ashleigh for our engagement photos and wedding. Neither my fiancé or I had experienced a professional photo shoot, and from consultation through shoot day she made it fun and easy. Her in-home consultation experience is special and makes you feel extremely comfortable with her. On the day of our engagement shoot we were not quite sure what to expect. We had a blast! She had music, made us laugh and put us both at ease being intimate and sharing little moments with each other. Ashleigh turned these little moments into pure gold, capturing a level of intimacy that I'd heard people say about us but had never seen from the outside in. We're still working with her for the wedding and it's great. She's been open to our ideas and as enthusiastic as we are. If you come across Ashleigh and don't book her, you're missing out!

I discovered Ashleigh through Instagram and her work immediately stood out-- I knew she would be able to capture our Big Day, perfectly. When we received the images, my parents who are also photographers were blown away. Our wedding was in Frederick, MD at a winery, on a bright and sunny day. Ashleigh and her team incorporated the light and natural backdrops to make the images look like pieces of art.
Some of the wedding party (myself included) are not the most at ease in front of a camera, but she made us feel really comfortable. I also loved her ability to capture the candid moments throughout the day. Her photos help bring back all the amazing memories made and shed light on ones we missed.
We are so grateful to have had Ashleigh present to capture our wedding for us, and strongly recommend her and her team to all!!!

Ashleigh made everything so easy for me! She was always professional and the only vendor who never stressed me! I plan to use her for absolutely every event that I need a photographer for in the future! She's amazing, fast and her work speaks for itself! You will not be disappointed!
