  • Update: With our wedding day behind us, we couldn’t be more THRILLED with Ashley’s work. I look at all our photos and instantly smile. And my mother, who is notoriously difficult to please, texts me every day to tell me what a great job Ashley did with all our pictures. Let me add: Ashley was not just an excellent photographer. She was also a part-time bridesmaid, helping with my bustle and all the stressful wedding day snafus we went through. We never asked. She just jumped in where she was needed, because she is an incredible human. HIRE THIS LADY NOW! You’ll thank yourself later! ===== I am so, so lucky we found Ashley to be our wedding photographer. From day 1, she's been extremely responsive and accommodating. When we had to postpone our wedding because of coronavirus concerns, she offered to come to the courthouse for no extra charge if we chose to make it legal before the big ceremony/reception. Postponing our wedding has been an extremely emotional experi... Read more

  • Ashley was AMAZING! She was such a delight to work with from our engagement photo session in the fall to our wedding in May! She is so much fun to shoot with too, we couldn’t stop smiling and laughing together and truly had a blast! Don’t even get me started on the wedding day; she truly helped the timeline go SO smoothly and really made me feel like a princess! I can’t recommend Ashley enough! So in love with my photos and she delivers them in the blink of an eye!

  • Ashley does a great job. She's friendly, fun to be around, and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. Everyone has raved about how much they love our pictures and Ashley's editing style. She was always responsive and willing to accommodate our schedule. We will 100% hire again and would recommend her to anyone!

  • Ashley was my favorite part of my wedding. The quality of photos is superior to any other photos I’ve seen. She is fun and energetic, she’s super cool and is so easy going. You don’t just get a few photos from your wedding that you love, every photo is spectacular. She makes the process fun, even for people who feel awkward in front a camera. She somehow transforms you into a goddess on the other side of that lens. Ashley is magic and if you have the opportunity book her, do it, they will become your most treasured photos.

  • Ashley did our engagement and wedding photos. She was incredibly professional and even had a few dozen photos for us to look at the morning after our big day. She had our whole gallery to us quickly and the quality is fantastic!! We are putting our album together now and can't wait to have it sitting on our coffee table for years to come. Ashley and her second shooter were on top of everything and we barely knew they were there during the reception but they were able to snap some great shots of the party. Will be using her for many photo shoots to come and highly recommend her!

  • I would highly recommend booking Ashley Hesse! We booked her for our wedding and as a piece of this we also received an engagement session. I am not someone who likes to be in the spotlight and I usually feel awkward posing for photos. But her calm and somewhat quiet nature put me and my husband at ease. The engagement session provided us an opportunity to get comfortable with her style and learn a bit about each other. She guided us through several natural poses and caught the candid moments in between. She is an expert at capturing natural light in any setting. She even managed to capture beautiful photos on an extremely windy and cold beach. For our wedding, she was flexible despite numerous last minute changes secondary to the COVID pandemic. We absolutely loved our photos and they were delivered to us less than a month after our wedding!

  • We booked Ashley for our wedding before COVID-19 hit. In the months before the wedding, she was so gracious and flexible amid multiple shifting dates for our engagement shoot and the wedding itself. She made an otherwise stressful experience so much more pleasant with how accommodating and understanding she was of our situation. This just goes to show how much she really cares about her clients. The photos on the day of turned out beautiful, and we'll have so many lasting memories of our day because of them. Highly recommend working with Ashley!

  • Ashley was an amazing photographer for our recent wedding. My fiance and I picked her because she had shot at our venue before, we loved her work, and her packages were straightforward and very reasonable. After meeting with her we knew it was a great choice because of her knowledgeable, professional, and relaxed nature (as well as a great sense of humor). Ashley was super adaptable to our requests that might have been a bit off the norm- shooting our engagement pictures at our home, including our dog, and having a massive group photo at our wedding. She also brought great ideas to the table and gave direction to our group so well. She helped to keep things moving, while simultaneously capturing AMAZING images. Looking back on our gallery I am completely brought back to that day and very impressed at the ease of which Ashley orchestrated capturing all of it. I know she worked so hard but she made it look easy! She was also very communicative before, after, and during our event and had ... Read more

  • Ashley is hands down the best decision I made while planning my wedding. (Besides saying I do, lol) Both her and her second shooter were AMAZING. It's hard to remember the wedding details, but looking back at the pictures, it brings me right back to it. She is professional, friendly, quick to respond, detail oriented and she makes you feel at ease during the entire photo shoot/wedding.

  • We could not be any more satisfied with Ashley's professionalism, talent, and her perfect shots at our wedding. Our wedding photos came out so beautiful. Ashley was very easy to work with and accommodating. Our engagement shoot was our very first photo shoot, EVER and it was great. We most certainly recommend Ashley. The best photographer who captured the best day ever, PERFECTLY!

  • Ashley was a wonder to work with. She made the process so easy from start to finish. Ashley really takes the time to get to know you as a couple to ensure your photos reflect your personalities and the uniqueness of your day and relationship. From the start, her details are evident in the surveys she provides to get to know you and all of the in and out details of your wedding, to help make sure she captures everything you want captured. And, the addition of the engagement shoot is just spectacular. It was great for her and us to get to know each other, and get comfortable in front of the camera. (the engagement shots looked awesome as well!) She made sure to get every photo, without making us feel rushed, or like our whole day was spent snapping photos. She really helped with our big day feeling like it went smoothly. She also got our full gallery to us remarkably fast. Her professionalism and friendliness is refreshing! We loved working with her!

  • From day 1, she's been extremely responsive and accommodating. When we had to postpone our wedding because of coronavirus concerns, she offered to come to the courthouse for no extra charge if we chose to make it legal before the big ceremony/reception. Postponing our wedding has been an extremely emotional experience, and that gesture from Ashley meant the world to us.

  • Ashley has a great personality and was made to work with people. Her humor and genuine personality drew out the vest in my fiancé who is less than thrilled about pictures. The pictures are natural and timeless. We worked with Ashley for our engagement photos and wedding photos. We were so grateful for her flexibility and adaptability in regards to a wedding during COVID. We absolutely love our pictures!!
