Ashley is amazing! I barely knew she was there, but then the pictures that we got back after the event seems like she was everywhere at once. And I always hear nightmares about people not getting their albums back for so long, but we had ours back so quickly! She was so nice and easy to work with, and I'd recommend her to anyone!

Ashley Sullivan is absolutely amazing! She was recommended to us by quite a few people - including other photographers, friends and wedding planners... and she lived up to all of their great comments! She is so funny, down to earth and fabulous at her job! She captured every single detail from us getting ready... to the crazy and funny emotions and dancing during the wedding and reception. I loved working with her and always felt I was in good hands, I never had to worry about anything! I promise you will not be disappointed with Ashley... you need to book her now!!

Ashley was outstanding and very flexible to our needs on our wedding day. We have an autistic 4year old which can make for a challenging photography session on a day filled with stress but Ashley came and met our family ahead of the wedding and then was very flexible on taking breaks and knowing when enough was enough for the kids. Thanks again Ashley!

Ashley was such a pleasure to work with. She is so nice and easy to talk with. She did such a wonderful job every picture is amazing. Seeing all the little details she was able to catch was so great. My husband and I love everyone of the pictures and she took a lot. She was able to catch such beautiful moments between us that we will just cherish and I can't wait to put them in a frame. Even my family liked her and asked for her to take their picture and she had no problem doing that. We got so many compliments of the pictures. I would definitely recommend her to my friends. I can't wait to have her take our next photos hopefully our family with a little addition.

Hiring Ashley Michelle Photography was the smartest decision I made for my wedding! She was extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgable. She really gets to know you and what you are looking for in photography for your wedding day, and she is always available when you need to reach her. During our wedding ceremony and reception, I didn't even notice her there! She did a great job at staying out of the way, but captured the most incredible and touching moments. I have received so many glowing compliments about my pictures. Numerous people have said that my wedding pictures are the best wedding pictures they have ever seen, and I totally agree!

Ashley is the consummate professional. Even though it poured on my wedding day, Ashley remained flexible and calm when we needed to change the schedule for photos. Prior to my wedding, Ashley and I discussed the photos and moments I hoped to capture, and she ensured that I got the shot list I wanted. Ashley is friendly, fun and stress-free. With everything that I had to focus on, I didn't have time to work directly with Ashley the entire time, but it wasn't a problem. I had full faith in her.

The entire process including booking, payment, receiving sneak peeks and my final photos was easy. Ashley does everything electronically, which is very convenient. I received my final photos within weeks of my wedding. I am so pleased with Ashley's services, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer who's got it all.

I found Ashley on WeddingWire.com, and my fiance (now husband - yay!) and I were immediately impressed with her gorgeous photographs and creative & fun style. Before we met with her, we already knew we would be booking her for our wedding on the Eastern Shore! The initial meeting was very easy - she came down to Bethesda (where we live) from Baltimore, on an evening that was convenient for us. As soon as we met with her, she sent us a link with all of her information (pricing, extras, ordering prints and albums, etc.), which I was easily able to share with my fiance and our wedding planner. Emailing with her throughout the planning process was a breeze - Ashley was very responsive. The timing of our wedding was different than her packages, so she worked with us to figure out the best plan. We were able to make payments online - VERY convenient! The final step of our planning was an online questionnaire, with questions ranging from the timing of my hair appointment to specific shots we'd like taken (the bridal party "jump shot," 3 generations of women in our family, etc.) On the day of our wedding, Ashley and her assistant arrived early (before me!) to scope out the country club. Between Ashley and our wedding planner, we got all of the pre-ceremony shots taken without my fiance and I seeing each other. Though it was 90 degrees and sunny, Ashley and her assistant remained cheerful, friendly, and (yes) assertive throughout all of the post-ceremony outdoor photos (you try getting 30 sweaty people to cooperate and look fabulous!) During the reception, they were unobtrusive - never in the way or reminding us to smile - we were allowed to be very natural, and she captured us at our happiest. My husband and I ABSOLUTELY recommend Ashley to any other couple getting married in the D.C./Baltimore/Eastern Shore area. She also does family sessions, so in a few years you can be sure we'll be calling her again!

When we began to look at photographers for our wedding we were looking for those who could beautifully capture people. We were not looking for a portrait photographer, nor were we looking for someone that could artfully capture our cake sitting on a table. After looking at 20 or more local photographers, Ashley was recommended by a family member. This is where our search ended. I called Ashley and told her that she didn't need to sell herself to me as her photos had already done the hard work.

During months of planning Ashley was prompt to respond to e-mails and phone calls. She was reassuring when I had a few moments of bridal anxiety, and told me if it helped me stay organized-- keep sending her e-mails. The day of the wedding, she was SUPER flexible with the moment to moment changes that unfolded. She packed and unpacked photography equipment several times to capture movement from location to location.

My bridal party complemented Ashley for being kind and in control, but not controlling of our pictures. As a side note, Ashley can back-pedal very quickly while taking beautiful pictures!

In the end, everyone (mom's, dad's, friends...) was very pleased with the quality of service and the quality of photographs that Ashley provided. My husband and I are easy going, had a very casual wedding and wanted to capture the special moments as "organically" as possible. Success!

Now as far as value is concerned... Let's be honest: no family on a budget wants to spend thousands of dollars on anything. Ashley's services were worth every penny. We wouldn't have done it any other way.

Ashley is SUCH a talent. I have known her personally for years, but have also known a wide variety of photographers...believe me, she is amazing. Her attention to detail is exact and she is willing to do what you want, even if you are picky or think outside the box (as I can be). She has done several portrait sessions for me, and I cherish them all. She makes clients feel at ease and is completely professional. As an events planner, I would recommend her to any bride in the DC/MD/VA area.

I was one of Ashley's first wedding clients. Ashley is very fun, flexible and professional. Ashley will work with you to make your vision a reality. I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted in the way of photos (poses, family, individual, etc) but Ashley is very helpful in making suggestions to create beautiful images! She is willing to go anywhere and do anything. In both our engagement session and our wedding session Ashley indulged us as we dragged her all over DC from monument to monument, with excellent results!

I would absolutely refer Ashley Michele Photography to everyone. She did an outstanding job as far as meeting me at the location prior to the wedding to scope out the place to see where some great areas for the pictures would be. She always got back to me in a timely fashion, she is affordable. The day of the wedding she didn't stop taking pictures , candid , posing , formal , funny, cute , sincere , emotional and joyful you name it it was captured in the 300 plus pictures she took. I know someone who recently got married and who ever she used her pictures came out horrible, the pictures the guest took came out better ...and that day and those memories can't be re-done , so DON'T CHANCE IT!!! My dad is getting re-married next year and asked for Ashley Michele's info because everyone saw how hard she was working and how easy going she was. If you asked for a picture of this or that she gladly did it. I absolutely love my pictures and get to relive that special day through them . Every special moment is captured in her pictures. Thank you so much !! Nichole Whitman

Ashley was an absolutely wonderful wedding photographer. She did an amazing job with the pictures and we couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend her services! She takes beautiful candid photos which we preferred as well as the traditional poses. We had a very non-traditional wedding and Ashley didn't mind at all and still catered to OUR needs.

Ashley has a natural talent to see perfect moments every bride wants to revisit after her wedding. As a bride you miss so many things happening around you. Ashley was able to capture a timeline through the night so I didn't feel I missed a thing! She is so willing and eager to please the bride with her ideas, as well as offering ideas very appropriate for the brides personality. Love her! Will reccommend her services to everyone I know and continue to use her for the rest of my life milestones!

Ashely was great! So many people have complimented our photos and we were very pleased with both her and her work. She is very flexible and has fun ideas and props. The clear umbrellas she brought to our wedding made some of the best pictures. She handled the rainy weather great and it didn't seem to phase her...she took it all in stride and used it to her advantage.

One of the most important things in a wedding photographer is someone you feel comfortable with and Ashely made us feel just that. She was so patient, even when I started growing tired of having my picture taken :)

One of the best parts was that she surprised us by setting up a slideshow at our wedding from our pictures earlier in the afternoon. Our guest really enjoyed it and I appreciated it, especially since she was solo and was able to go above and beyond while not missing a single important shot. Lastly she sent us a link with a slideshow of us, our story, and a way for us and our guests to purchase photos, lots of time and attention was put into this, not to mention her awesome blog of us.

My only wish is we had more than 10 days to pick our favorite pictures to be printed to get the discount... seems a bit rushed but it will force us to make the decision and not put it off.

We plan to use Ashley in the future for when we have kids as she takes awesome family photos too. She has a real talent and we wish her much success in the future.

Ashley Michelle did a wonderful job. The communication was always open and direct. She is on top of things and we got our wedding photos on our USB drive back in just a couple weeks!!! The photography experience was awesome, but for the amount of money we put out I wish we would have gotten an album and prints with it, not have to pay an additional fee to get them. Overall, she is creative and fun and anyone who has her as their photographer would be taken away by how great of picture quality and service they are getting. Thank you for the wedding memories.
