My husband and I chose Ashley not only for our wedding but also for our engagement photos, and we cannot give enough praise for the absolutely gorgeous photos that she captured. Both our engagement and our wedding were so special and magical to both my husband and I, and Ashley somehow managed to capture every moment just as we felt them. Not only is Ashley a very talented woman, but so sweet and a pleasure to work with.
From the very beginning, I felt Ashley was actually taking the time to learn about us as a couple and how we fell in love. She genuinely cares about capturing the story and it made shooting our Engagement photos even more special. I never felt like I was just another client, I felt she was my friend who wanted to capture the happiest moments of my life. She is incredibly talented and kind, I would recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a wedding photographer!
Ashley was, hands down, the BEST decision we made for our wedding. I remember doing most of the planning for our wedding... my husband is very into photography and he really wanted a quality photographer. I wanted to save money... however, he talked me into hiring Ashley and I couldn't be more grateful for this one 'splurge' we decided to take. Nowadays, you see a lot of wedding albums and they are just touched up, softened, and edited SO much! Ashley uses natural light and captures the actual moment without using so many filters and edits. The end product was beautiful and the pictures looked like US. She is a master of light and truly has a gift. If you're on the fence, please consider that the wedding pictures are quite literally one of the ONLY things you have left to remember your wedding. The BEST day of your life... pick a good photographer! I cried when I saw the pictures and was sooo blown away. We have so many memories to last a lifetime, and not to mention SO many awesome pictures to frame and give as gifts. Ashley is the real deal, and she's SUCH a dream to work with! She made us feel very comfortable and I didn't even notice her taking tons of pictures on my wedding day. To give you a little perspective about me, I am NOT very comfortable in front of a camera. Yet, she captured all the most important moments and more and the pictures are just jaw dropping. Thank you Ashley- so, so, so much!
Ashley did our engagement photos and wedding photos! My husband and I are from Michigan and had a destination wedding in Estes Park. Our first time meeting was the day of our photos and it felt so comfortable and natural! On our wedding day there rain was on the radar for the exact time our photos were to begin. We had to completely switch around the schedule and she was SO helpful as I was already a nervous wreck and felt like I couldn’t make decisions that day. She made me feel so great about myself and handled a large obnoxious wedding party with such patience!!
Ashley was amazing from start to finish. We heard about her through a friend, who raved about how fun she was to work with. We felt comfortable with her immediately and through the entire process: phone call, engagement pictures, wedding preparation, and our special day. Ashley calmed our nerves and truly walked us through creating a timeline and setting the tone for the day. She guided us through our photo wish list and truly took the time to get to know us. She was also instrumental in helping my husband pull off the most incredible surprise to cap off our wedding. We couldn’t love her any more and recommend her to EVERYONE. She is the best of the best and an absolute joy to work with. Our engagement and wedding photos are everything we could have hoped for and so much more. Both her talent and heart are beyond belief.
If you are looking for a photographer that is beyond talented, passionate about what she does and has the sweetest personality; read on!! From the moment, I got in touch with Ashley I knew she was the photographer for us. She is so much more than an amazing photographer, she honestly fit in like family on our special day and felt like a longtime friend. When my search began for photographers I browsed all over trying to read reviews all the way from Florida planning a wedding in Colorado. The moment I saw Ashley’s art and the passion that shows in her photos I was HOOKED. I also connected with the way her previous clients raved about her technique and professionalism. I contacted her with excitement and the fear of it not working out to book her for our day, but boy did my husband and I get lucky. She caught everything and more that day and like I said earlier fit right in doing so (: Ashley was so accommodating fitting in a day after session with us before we flew home and we explored all over Estes Park with her. She has “the eye” for capturing the perfect shot and she made us feel so comfortable both the day of and after. We have breathtaking photos we get to cherish forever, thank you Ashley for being the BEST at what you do!
Ashley is amazing and by far exceeded our expectations!! From the moment we contacted her she was extremely professional and helpful. My husband and I are from Wisconsin, so doing a destination wedding in Colorado was a lot to plan. Ashley helped us every step of the way, making sure our large wedding party had lots of fun but also stayed organized. She captured every detail of our special day with her unique and artistic style. Ashley knows the Rocky Mountain National Park well, and she helped us pick out the perfect spot for both our engagement and wedding pictures. The photos are seriously breathtaking!! We could not be happier with how everything turned out and would highly recommend Ashley to any Colorado couples looking for the perfect photographer.
We cannot say enough great things about Ashley - she was everything we were looking for in a vendor and more! She was wonderful to work with and did an incredible job capturing each special moment during our wedding. Ashley made a point of getting to know us as a couple and truly became a part of the celebration. We LOVE the photos and will enjoy them for years to come!
When you start wedding planning- everything can be so overwhelming. Where do I start, who do I talk to, who can help me along this process? Ashley was my first call. All of those questions became a little less “scary” after talking with her. I met Ashley though another project- and knew from that point that when my husband and I decided to take the next step that Ashley would be my first call. Ashley is not only an incredible photographer, but she is a wonderful person. She has so much insight and helpful little tips that make the wedding planning process just a little bit less insane. I felt like I was inviting a friend to our wedding – not a photographer. She knows how to get the best shots, find the best light, and just get the best out of each person (and dog☺). Our engagement photos in Downtown Denver captured my husband and I perfectly. She got us to come out of our shells and was able to capture each of our personalities perfectly. Then at the wedding- She did the same thing with not only him and I- but also each and everyone she took a photo of. I feel so grateful that I have shots- for example- of my Grandparents- the love and the happiness in their faces is something I will cherish forever. I could not have imagined my day without her. I highly recommend Ashley to any bride looking for a photographer who will add just a little bit more excitement, smiles, and love to their day!
Ashley was a joy to work with! She is highly professional and her photography is incredibly beautiful. She takes great pride and love in producing high quality pictures for her clients. She is reliable and on-time and is quick to turn around the edited photos. She did our engagement photo shoot and our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out! She captured our most important moments in such a personal way. Her style is very "candid" and she love to capture the real life emotions of the moment. We love looking through our pictures and re-living our day because she documented it so well. I would HIGHLY recommend Ashley McKenzie Photography to everyone I know. If you haven't booked her yet, do it now!
We were referred to Ashley by another photographer who was booked on our wedding day and had nothing but great thing to say about her. Boy, how fortunate for us! Right from the first meeting, Ashley made us feel very comfortable, asked a ton of questions to get to know us as a couple and what we had in mind for wedding and engagement photos. She is a great listener, genuine and a master of her craft. She clearly takes great pride in what she does - and it comes across in her work! Our engagement photos were fantastic - and our wedding photographs were everything we had hoped for. She has a talent for finding the best lighting, and captured all of the best moments on the very best day of our lives. She is calm and patient in the "challenging moments" that come up on a wedding day...exactly who you need your photographer to be! We couldn't have chosen a better one - and I can't wait to work with her in the future! Book with Ashley - and don't think twice.
Everyone who looks at my wedding photos says they are the most beautiful wedding photos they have ever seen, and I agree. They tell a beautiful story. Beyond that, Ashley is just an amazing human being. She is so sweet and romantic, as well as hardworking and professional. She has really found her calling and it shows in every picture.
Ashley is wonderful to work with from start to finish. She is friendly, professional, organized, calm, and very talented. She feels like a friend as soon as you meet her, and it truly seems like she finds joy and happiness in her work. At no point did I worry that I wouldn't get a photo that was important to me--she was all over it, and our photos were beautiful. I'm a graphic designer by trade, working a lot with photography, so I have pretty discerning taste when it comes to photo quality. It's not all in how to work the camera--it's how to capture real moments and make your subjects (who usually aren't models) feel comfortable and happy in front of the camera. Ashley is gifted in all these areas, and I could not be happier with how our engagement and wedding photos came out. During our wedding, I had so many friends & family members tell me how great she was, and after we received our photos back, the complements poured in. Everyone agreed: Ashley is fantastic in pretty much every way :)
This woman is truly talented!!!! My wedding photos were simply beautiful. Her professionalism was on point and was flexible when there was some scheduling issues. She was so reasonably priced for the amount of photos and the quality of them. Would highly recommend her and I plan to use her for any other photography needs!
Ashley McKenzie photographed my wedding at Lonehawk Farm in May 2015. I feel so fortunate to have found her! She is professional and so much fun to work with. She was always quick to respond when I had questions or wanted to see a gallery of her work. She gave great advice on the timing for pictures and how to get the pictures that would mean the most to us. On the wedding day, we had a lot of things that didn't go as planned, but she thrived and made the most of the unexpected. She made everyone feel at ease during portraits and we were all laughing and having a great time. She knew exactly how to take advantage of the timing of events and the lighting. I absolutely love our pictures. She captured the wonderful emotions of the day in such a beautiful way. The portrait, candid, and detail shots are all gorgeous and tell the story of our day. We've had so many wedding guests tell us how much they loved her and the pictures. She was so quick to post a preview of our photos. We had our online gallery and adorable USB of our pictures weeks before expected and all the photos were beautifully edited. I can't recommend Ashley and her work enough.
Ashley is an amazing photographer who brings the art into each one of her photos. I found her years ago when I first started planning my wedding, however things changed and we unexpectedly had to move out of the state. I tried to find someone on the east coast that had her eye and skill but it failed. So my only option was to have it in Colorado ( which is where most of my family was anyways) and I didn't fight it. I called her up out of the blue and I was so lucky she was available. Professional, sweet and good hearted you can not go wrong! She captured my simple wedding decor in the way I always envisioned it, beautiful! She is worth every penny. She also was a wonderful sport when my venue ended up being way way farther then we originally spoke of. Thank you Ashley!
My husband and I love pictures so when it came time to choose our engagement/wedding photographer we did tons of research to find "the best" and wow did we find it! From the beginning, Ashley was inviting, personable, a joy to be around and our pictures are stunning. We are so thankful that we chose Ashley and we can't wait to work with her again!
It was such a pleasure to have Ashley as our photographer on our wedding day. She was everything we dreamed about in a photographer - punctual (early in fact, which was really nice because our venue can be hard to find), organized, friendly and she takes amazing pictures. What I love most about her is that she made my husband and me feel completely comfortable, which is saying a lot for two people who don't love to be the center of attention. She did a great job of perfectly capturing our day and we will forever have these memories to cherish. Additionally, after the wedding, we were told that it would take around 5 weeks to have all of our pictures and we got them within 2 weeks of our wedding - such a great surprise (though I know this may not be the case for everyone as we did have an earlier wedding). I know that in the future, if we ever have need for a photographer, she will be our first choice!
Ashley has the talent, renown, personality, and experience. My wife and I were fortunate to have booked Ashley's services almost a year in advance of our wedding date. We suggest you do the same! We used Ashley's services for the engagement photo session; we had visions of what we wanted, and Ashley knew how to bring them to life. She worked with our schedules and ideas to create memorable masterpieces. We were thoroughly impressed with the turn-around time and quality of the engagement photos Ashley took. However, Ashley still surprised us with her mastery through the course of the wedding day and afterwards with the final product. She was familiar with our venue, she knew whom to pull aside, she had a plan for the photographs, and she kept smiles on everyone's faces through the entire event. Even our family members cannot stop looking at the final album Ashley provided to us--for her pictures to elicit such emotion and joy from ourselves and others is a testament to the quality of her work.
Ashley McKenzie Photography was the best choice we could have made for our wedding! She is personable, professional, and the photographs from our engagement session and wedding were of incredible quality. We have already recommended her to a few friends and will definitely use her again!
Ashley did our engagement and wedding photos. From the very beginning she was very quick to respond and was so professional and informative from the start. Her schedule was open to meet with us to go over everything and show us more of her work. Her website shows a great deal of her wonderful work and she is not afraid to show more on request. The price of her work is absolutely reasonable! She has such a great, easy going personality that she makes you feel comfortable right from the get go. I absolutely loved having her as our photographer and am so happy with all of the photographs. On the day of the wedding she came so prepared and didn't need any direction from anyone which was such a relief. She came ready to work and knew exactly what she needed to do and when. She had a schedule and stuck with it but kept me (the bride) at ease that we were going to get all the photos that were needed even if we were running behind on time. She was patient and kind with everyone even when they could have been in her way. I wouldn't do it any differently if I could. She was perfect and so much fun to work with. I am just sad I don't have a lot more reasons to work with her. Highly recommend you chose Ashley.
Ashley is wonderful. My husband and I were able to jump on this bandwagon early on in her business career, so our price was lower than she charges now, but nonetheless, Ashley is great and worth every penny! Her photos are true to color, meaningful, beautiful, vibrant, the eyes of her subjects are gorgeous, she has a great eye for the perfect photo, and she is so fun to work with. We had a wedding of about 190, and a wedding party of 12, and she was able to capture such great photos of everyone on our special day. Our groomsmen are hilarious and somewhat ridiculous at times, and she just played along and made them feel comfortable so the pictures are excellent. I would highly recommend Ashley. We received our photos in about 7 weeks, got 506 of them, and we have full rights to them.
Ashley did an amazing job of photographing our wedding and engagement session. She was very thorough and professional and her photographs are beautiful. Her ideas were creative and traditionally beautiful. Moreover, she was so easy to work with. She was willing to photograph us all day - 9am to 9pm! And she was positive and energetic the whole time. Her price was more than reasonable.
Ashley was absolutely phenomenal from the moment we started with her to the end. She did our engagement photos and we fell in love right away. Once we got our wedding photos, she did such a wonderful job that it brought tears to many eyes. Ashley is the kind of person to try and get to know her customers so she can take the best photos that will suit them. She was excellent in timing, budget, and just overall, her professionalism. We hope to use Ashley for many more memories in our lives! We not only had a photographer, we had a friend; and that is the best kind of vendor to have (in my opinion). I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Ashley is so energetic and fun to work with! My fiance and I had a great time working with her for our engagement photos and I'm sure our wedding photos will be equally as amazing! She's professional, courteous, and very creative. We got the pics back in great time and loved every one of them! If you're searching for a photographer, look no more, Ashley is who you need!!
My fiancé and I had our engagement photos done in February and the final product was amazing! We got so many compliments from all our family and friends, and I felt there were so many amazing photos, nobody could pick out a favorite! When we shot, the weather was freezing cold but Ashley was such a trooper! She kept the energy up and you can't even tell how cold we are in our pictures. She also provided a lot of direction. My fiancé and I had no clue how to pose or anything but she was so positive and had so many creative, fun ideas that everybody loved! Plus, she is so personable and made us feel very comfortable throughout the process. And I am really relieved to be moving closer towards our wedding day confident in our photographer. Highly recommended!
"Ashley is a technical and creative photographer who respects her clients' ideas and wishes. She did our engagement session and produced excellent images that our friends and family loved. Most importantly, she is a warm individual with a huge heart and I would trust her to capture some of the most important moments of my life. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fun session and quality work."
My husband and I hired Ashley for our engagement photos as well as for our wedding. Best decision ever? Yes, best decision ever. Not only is Ashley creative, talented and passionate, but she is just such a wonderful person. She cares about the people she works with, and she cares about her work. Super professional! We both highly recommend her!
