We just wanted to thank you for capturing our special day! 
I am so pleased how calm and patient you were through the whole thing! From me being anxious and annoyed, to forgetting Teague’s ring, and finally making it to marrying my best friend!  

You are amazing and I am so pleased that we chose you! 

Can’t wait to see some photos! We truly can’t thank you enough!

Ashley made our experience both comfortable and fun! What really stood out to me was that she was interested in getting to know us as a couple, which was reflected through her photos.

Ashley you are so amazing. We love the photos! It was so exciting to relive the day and you captured it perfectly. I think we both teared up a little bit! Thank you for capturing these memories for us! We are beyond thrilled!! Yaaaay!!!

Absolute pleasure to work with, incredibly intuitive and creative. Always positive, cheerful and engaged, both in our idea/planning sessions leading up to the wedding, and in capturing the big day itself. Thanks Ashley!

Getting pictures taken is not usually our favourite thing! But you are only engaged once and we decided to go ahead and get a few done. The photos were not only amazing, but Ashley made us feel comfortable and was able to give lots of suggestions on different poses. We were thrilled with the entire experience and can’t wait for the wedding!

Ashley, I can’t even explain myself in words, but my tears of happiness say it all. The photos are everything I ever could have wanted. Every single photo was an “oooh” or “ahhh”, a laugh or happy tear. I’m overwhelmed by happiness seeing these pictures. This was the most magical day of my life and you captured it the way I remember. I love you with everything for having the talent to be able to do this and sharing your talent with Chris and I for the day. I hope you had fun, Jordan too!! WE LOVED HAVING YOU THERE!!!

Ashley is amazing! She was our wedding photographer this past October and she captured our day perfectly! Our experience with Ashley was great from start to finish. We had some different ideas about how we wanted our wedding day to go and she was so supportive. She captured every moment and every emotion of our day, she didn’t miss a detail. Looking through the pictures is like walking through our wedding day all over again. She snapped amazing shots of hugs and faces and dance moves that I didn’t even see. I love her style and her personality! She makes the most awkward people (us!) feel comfortable and made us look beautiful and natural in our pictures. I recommend Ashley to anyone looking for a photographer!

Ashley was the calm and professional presence amid the chaos and nerves of a wedding day. The weather was cold and wet but Ashley plugged through without complaint and the pictures turned out amazing. If you are looking for someone flexible, affordable, and extremely competent, Ashley is the way to go.

Ashley was a very welcome addition to our wedding day! She had great suggestions for photo opportunities and was happy to let us come up with our own goofy ideas and just roll with it. We have so many amazingly candid shots of our friends and family playing games, meeting new people and tearing up the dance floor. Looking through our photo album takes us right back to one of the most exciting days of our lives. Ashley – You really captured the exuberance of our wedding and we love you for it!

I loved the photo’s you took of the wedding: they are fresh and dynamic. Even the posed family portraits are full of life and playfulness. Your images perfectly captured Morgan and Jamie’s sincerity, exuberance and their sense of fun. I have been on this planet a long time, and never really recognize or like myself  in photographs. But you somehow – especially in the candid shots – caught me looking  like me, and allowed me to ‘see’ myself in a way I haven’t very often before.  Not only did you provide us with a great visual record of the wedding, but I now have photos that I love, of people that I love. Thank you!

Our decision to use Ashley for our photos was an easy one. We had seen the great work she had done for family, and she came highly recommended by a friend. Once we met, it was easy to see where this high praise came from. Ashley was obviously committed to giving us the most beautiful wedding photos she could. We were not a traditional situation, we were only looking for photos of our reception. The photos were exactly what we wanted. We never felt like we were dragged away from the fun to take photos, instead we felt like Ashley was just a part of the night, it wasn’t until we received our photos that we were able to see just how wonderfully Ashley had been able to capture the evening. With all of the choices surrounding the wedding, choosing Ashley was one of the easiest, and also one of the most rewarding!

I had an amazing time with Ashley during our Engagement Photo session! She arrived on time and was very professional throughout the whole 2 hours we were together! Both Aaron and I were slightly uncomfortable as we had never done a photo shoot before and we did not know quite what to do. But Ashley was fantastic at making us feel comfortable! She would direct us into some really great photos which then allowed the 2 of us to feel comfortable enough to switch it up and have fun! And then right when the awkward “what do we do now” moments started to sneak in again Ashley was right there with another great shot or direction. Her timing on the proofs was amazing! By the end of the day I was able to see a sneak peek at what was to come and I was in awe! She got a lot of really great shots and I loved seeing how she made us look so fantastic! She also had some amazing ideas on where to go and what to do which was fantastic! I enjoyed how she wasn’t pushy and allowed us the freedom to be ourselves but was there when we needed her! We had an amazing time overall and I look forward to using her wonderful talent in the future! She truly is an artist who captured the love we share with one another!

We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful photos from our wedding day. Ashley made us feel relaxed, comfortable and the incredible photos are proof!  Her professionalism, keen eye and ability to capture unique candid shots were unmatched and I would highly recommend Ashley Renee Photography for any special event!

It was an absolute honour to have Ashley take wedding photographs for us. Ashley has an amazing perspective when it comes to her ability to see “art in motion”. She took us to a few spots she believed would look beautiful and they were! We usually find posing to be photographed to feel awkward, but Ashley gave us suggestions and made us both feel so comfortable that we almost forgot she was even taking photos! Ashley did an incredible job in capturing the most perfect moments! She was extremely fun and easy to work with and she has a passion for what she does. We both couldn’t be happier with our wedding photographs! We would definitely recommend Ashley and will be returning for more sessions!

It was an easy decision for us to choose Ashley for our special day. Her kind, positive attitude and dedication were all great attributes that we were looking for. Her professionalism and sincerity really transfer throughout her work. She showed great passion and commitment to achieving exactly what we wanted our wedding photography experience to be. She went above and beyond to help capture the memories. She had great inspiration for finding beautiful photo opportunities around the venue and was open and flexible with any ideas we wanted to try. We were amazed at the quality, diversity and skill of her work. We would recommend her to anyone who wants a photographer who genuinely cares and has heart.

Choosing Ashley to do our wedding pictures was a no brainer. I had worked with her a few times over the years and she never disappointed. Ashley is motivated, creative, and has an excellent eye for photography. Her down to earth, and easy going nature put us at ease and made the process fun and painless. I have, and will continue to recommend Ashley and rave about her quality of work.

My fiancé and I were looking for a company to capture our engagement and love for one another. Ashley Renée Photography was an easy choice. Ashley made the experience fun and easy. She captured who were are as a couple, our love and affection for each other. Family and friends raved over the photos from this session. My fiancé and I recommend her to any couple looking for engagement photos or otherwise. She is a talented professional who we have since shared many special family photo moments with.
