"Ashley Strong is phenomenal!!! They are no words to describe how amazing she is and what joy she brings to you and your event! When I first spoke with Ashley on the phone regarding her services, I felt like I was talking to a long time friend. From day one, she made the process so perfect and easy. My husband is not one for pictures, so he was not looking forward to our engagement shoot. Ashley immediately made us both feel so comfortable and at ease with what we were doing. Her sense of humor and passion for what she does shined through at every pose and repositioning. Working with Ashley leading up to our wedding day was so fun, energetic, happy, professional, and just plain easy! I immediately trusted her with our engagement and wedding photos. On our wedding day, Ashley arrived and I instantly felt at ease and excited that she was the one there with us! BEST day ever! Ashley made the photos so fun and flirty! All of my bridesmaids and family just loved working with her as well. She is the perfect blend of professional, kind, loving, passionate, and completely on top of it! My husband and I just had the best time working with her! I am SO lucky to have found Ashley to capture our wedding - she is way more than just a photographer. On top of it all, she sent our sneak peak pictures the morning after our wedding!! You will not regret hiring Ashley and becoming part of her tribe! She is such an amazing person to work with and so very talented!"
"I have been using Ashley for a number of years now through our office for a number of projects and always been VERY happy. So when it came time to hire someone to document the birth of our newborn baby, I didn't hesitate to reach out to Ashley. While I knew the quality of the photos would be amazing, the overall experience was above and beyond perfect too! Ashley really took the time to get to know myself and my wife prior to taking a single photo. She made sure she was going to be a good fit with us before she documented these intimate moments with our growing family. She just dropped right in and was seamlessly in the background clicking away, at times I forgot she was even there. Additionally when we needed help with Mom and Baby, she jumped right in, just like one of the family. I won't EVER use another photographer, as she has proven why she is so good. For those of you who may be on the fence about using her, because she is expensive, let me address that. Yes she is expensive, but worth EVERY penny. I have hired cheaper folks in the past and you truly get what you pay for. You never have a problem communicating with her, she is attentive throughout the whole process. Everything is easily laid out and ready for download, and all within the time frame given. I would gladly pay a little more to know every detail is addressed. I cannot stress the value she provides, when its totally important, I know I don't have to stress over any photo details! From service, to price, to overall outcome of the pictures, they are AMAZING, and I recommend Ashley Strong Photography!"
"Where to begin? Ashley is simply amazing. Her talent as a special moments documentarian is unparalleled and we could not have made a better decision for our wedding photographer. From the very first call we had with Ashley, we noticed a strong connection. Our love story was very similar to that of her and her husband - we both persevered through long distance (international!) relationships and traveled across the world to be with each other. After looking at Ashley’s work, we immediately resonated with the joy she expresses through her photos, and did not hesitate to book her. Her support during wedding planning really made the process so much more fun for us! On our big day, Ashley truly executed, making efficiency a top priority without sacrificing quality. She was firm and deliberate with her directions and made sure everything - from our pre-wedding shoot to our family constellations, went smoothly. Ashley went above and beyond to ensure we got the absolute best possible shots. She would climb in the bushes, through trees and onto ledges, just to get the right composition, and even used her own shirt to wipe off dirt from our clothes or faces to make sure all the details were on point! Ashley’s never-ending energy and positive attitude fit right in with the vibe of our wedding. No matter the challenges and obstacles we met during the inevitable chaos of a wedding, she captured exactly what we wanted, and did it all with a big smile on her face! The post-wedding service was just as high-quality. She gave us a clear timeline on when to expect all of our pictures and in the meantime, would post sneak peaks of our shoot on her social media pages, which was really fun and exciting to follow. The final product, which arrived exactly on our 1 month anniversary, exceeded all of our expectations. Looking at the moments she captured allowed us to immediately relive our big day. We are so glad we chose Ashley as our photographer and would recommend her to anyone!"
"Ashley was absolutely amazing from the very beginning of our interaction.. she checked the boxes for everything I was looking for in a photographer, and SO MUCH MORE! She is extremely helpful and accommodating. She scheduled my photo-shoot within 3-4 days of our first phone call (I very a VERY engagement, so this was huge.) The awesome part was that she genuinely cared about what I wanted and was willing to do whatever it took to help make "my vision" come to life in a very short time-frame. She provided her number to me and told me to text her with any questions I have regarding outfits, etc - such a HUGE help! It was nice because she knows what colors, styles, etc. work with the setting. She wants to make sure your photos turn out how you're envisioning them to turn out. Setting: My photos were taken in Laguna Beach on the sand, in the water, on top of rocks, etc. Ashley wasn't afraid to do what it took to capture a great photo- and man, did it pay off!! Contract/ Terms/ Processing: Her contract and payment terms were very simple and easy to process. Many other vendors I have worked with leave me asking questions regarding "what's next".. not with Ashley- she provided the full scope and what to expect from the beginning. It was nice to finally not have to think about it all so much and know that she was going to take care of this part. (Such a relief when wedding planning!!) Photo Turnaround Time: Lastly, her turnaround time for edited photos were unreal. She was able to expedite them for me and they turned out incredible, and I was able to add them to my website and wedding invitations in time! I can't say enough great things about Ashley Strong Photography! Thank you again, Ashley!"
"Ashley does an incredible job from the beginning through the end! She helped us find the perfect locations to shoot in Southern California, made sure our shoot was as organized as possible, remained cheerful for two long days of shooting, lead the shoot with posing suggestions and her images were BEAUTIFUL! I couldn't recommend a better photographer than Ashley!"
