My husband found Ashlea's name on Facebook as his friend in high school had used Ashlea to capture their wedding day. As soon as I saw her portfolio I wanted her to be our photographer. Upon meeting Ashlea, she was: kind, flexible (we were running a bit late due to traffic), accommodating, professional, fun and a genuinely sweet person. My husband and I felt so comfortable with Ashlea and she made the whole experience feel so natural and enjoyable.
Ashlea captured every special moment of our wedding day and did a magnificent job! Every image is perfectly captured! Out of 700 images, there is NOT one we don't like! Even our friends and families have made comments about how stunning every picture is and how amazing our photographer was. We couldn't agree more with them!
I would recommend Ashlea to anyone in a heartbeat, because I know the quality of work she will deliver. You will not be disappointed :)
Thank you Ashlea for capturing our special day <3

My husband and I got married in late July and had the good fortune to work with a number of excellent vendors whose expertise helped us have a wonderful wedding. While we’re grateful to all of them, Ashlea really truly stood out!! Husband and I would recommend her without hesitation! To start, her photography skills are tremendous; she has a great eye, especially great at capturing the light beautifully. In terms of her professionalism, she’s top notch; never late for a meeting, promptly responded to e-mails and texts, researched our photography location to find the perfect backdrops, and helped us identify the perfect in-case-it-rains back up plan (wasn’t needed!). In addition to those technical and professional skills, Ashlea is a fantastic person. We felt entirely at ease and had a great time with her. What’s more is that she extended that kindness and ease to our family and friends; she didn’t just focus on us. My mom was very impressed by her and an aunt specifically commented that she saw Ashlea everywhere, taking pictures of all of the important moments. The experience felt like hanging out with a friend who happened to be hauling a camera with her! She's that great!
I should also note that Ashlea was assisted by the talented Sheena who helped carry Ashlea’s equipment, my flowers, Husband’s sunglasses and cell phone! She did it all and with a smile! More importantly, Sheena also kindly but firmly kept everyone on schedule and made sure Ashlea got all of the shots that were important to us.
This wasn’t just a job for Ashlea and Sheena; they both cared about making sure we had a great experience and a beautiful day, and we did! Bottom line? Ashlea is kind and generous with her talent .. you need not look any further!
And so, from both D and I, and most sincerely, thank-you Ashlea!

Your wedding photographer will be among the biggest and, in my opinion, the most important wedding planning decision you will make. After having consults with a few photographers it was clear that Ashlea would be the right decision within moments of meeting.
Ashlea has experience in event planning, is very organized and her attention to detail is incomparable. When you think of a wedding photographer you often just imagine someone taking pictures, it's so much more than that! Ashlea sat down and helped us plan the entire day, offered suggestions and gave insight into details I hadn't even thought of! She was supportive and accepting of any requests or 'must haves' for our day, and is so easy to talk to!
Above all and most importantly she will deliver photographs that are beyond your expectations. Her ability to truly capture the day and document little moments is exceptional. I love my wedding pictures and I am so happy to that we chose Ashlea!!!
My husband and I will be using Ashlea over the years to come to capture our growing family and milestones!
Thanks you Ashlea!

Mike and I had an amazing time with Ashlea.
Our wedding actually ran two days so we are very thankful for Ashlea because she took the time to sit down with us and create an itinerary of how the days would go. We also loved that she paid specific attention to detail (example: when the sun was at it's peak to capture the best photos). :)
On the wedding day(s) Ashlea and Sheena were amazing! Since Mike and I aren't the most comfortable people in front of the camera, but they were able to coach us and encourage us in the freezing cold, which ended up making for such great photos. And special thanks to Sheena for keeping me warm on such a cold day ;)
After showing the images to friends and family - we've gotten comments on how amazing Ashlea is at capturing the perfect moments during our shoot.
I would recommend Ashlea to anyone. She's so easy to work with and very professional. I can't imagine having a better wedding photographer. We loved her!

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Ashlea! She is truly an incredible photographer. She did our engagement and wedding photos and they are perfect. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is also so easy to get a long with and so helpful during the wedding planning process! She kept us on track throughout the wedding day and everyone had so much fun doing pictures with her. We had a lot of family pictures to get through and she worked so well with the second photographer (Ann) to make sure we captured them all. We were blown away at the quality of the pictures. We have had so many compliments on our pictures. We truly could not be happier with them! Thank you so much for capturing our day Ashlea, you are the best :)!

I booked with Ashlea for my August 2015 wedding and I couldn't have been happier! Her attention to detail, organization & product presentation were absolutely fantastic! Along with my wedding she also shot our engagement photos, which turned out to be stunning. She took the time to show us great spots to take photos before our wedding, and gave us fantastic recommendations as to where we could go in case the weather didn't go our way. I work in the bridal industry, and I will 100% be recommending her work to every bride I know! To all future brides & grooms: book with Ashlea, you will not be disappointed!

Ashlea was recommended to us by another couple who was married the previous year and we were SO glad she was. We were very hesitant about engagement photos as we are not a fan of posed shots and can sometimes feel uncomfortable. She made the whole experience all about us and made us feel so special. Ashlea is very kind and such a lovely person to be around. She is very attentive and works quickly to get the best shots. Our wedding day was amazing and she made sure to get exactly what we wanted and more! The shots she got of our wedding party were so unique and so much fun to do! Everyone fell in love with her (and her assistant!). They were so amazing! And then the shots we got as a couple are so beautiful, crisp and just stunning quality. We were overwhelmed with the final results of our wedding photos and could not have asked for a better photographer. Ashlea goes above and beyond and truly puts her whole heart into her work! :)
Ashlea exceeded our expectations as our wedding photographer! She was very accommodating, personable and reliable. Her prices are also very reasonable. Ashlea was on top of every detail and anticipated our needs which definitely eased our stress leading up to and on our wedding day. Most importantly she is incredibly talented. We don't enjoy being in front of a camera but we trusted her judgment and we absolutely Love our engagement and wedding photos! We highly recommend choosing Ashlea as your wedding or special events photographer.

Looking for a wedding photographer, look no further!! Ashlea is one of a kind as a person and as a photographer. I'm so incredibly happy we chose her. We did our engagement shoot on the coldest day of February and that didn't stop her from capturing great pictures including with our crazy puppy. On our wedding day, Ashlea put me at ease because I knew she was there capturing all of the special moments during our day from getting ready, to accessories to family shots and beautiful photos of my husband and I. She makes you feel comfortable and confident which shows in her photos. Even after we got our amazing wedding collection on a unique usb, Ashlea was still willing to answer questions and accommodate my wishes. Ashlea is top notch and you will not be disappointed!!

I am so grateful that we picked Ashlea as our engagement and wedding photographer! On your wedding day you want someone who knows what they're doing and can be flexible. When she arrived in the morning I asked her to pick a good "first look" spot and she found the perfect place (so much better than the one I would have chosen, which is why she is the photographer and not me!). My whole family had such a blast working with her and she was amazing at reminding us of the things we had said we wanted to get photos of but had forgotten (as you do). Our wedding day was completely out of the box and we decided to do professional photos with every friend and family member as they arrived; this took more than an hour and she handled it flawlessly, making sure to tell us which camera to look in when friends inevitably stepped in to ask if they could snap a photo too. When family asked her multiple times during lunch if they could get a quick photo, she was gracious and always obliged (we hope you DID enjoy the food, Ashlea!). During the ceremony and speeches I know she was getting everything but I barely noticed she was there; often during a ceremony you are distracted by the photographer, but she was discreet while still managing to capture everything. Her photos are beautiful, always managing to find the lighting that makes pictures rich and vibrant. During important family photos she stopped to check that no one blinked before moving on, so crucial photos were never missed. We couldn't have asked for a better professional to capture our moments! Ashlea, you've become a true friend and we would recommend you to anyone for their special events, it's been such a pleasure getting to know you :)
