Hello! We are Jenn & Ben Ayres of Ayres Photography!

Ayres Photography is a husband and wife team of professional photographers who have many years of experience with photographing everything under the sun! Wedding photography is our specialty, but we also greatly enjoy taking portraits of families, children, pets, and musicians. You name it, and we've probably shot it! We are both extremely creative people, and photography gives us the opportunity to put our creativity to good use. We like to push the boundaries of "traditional wedding photography" to the limit by constantly trying new and different techniques, which is ultimately what makes our photos stand out from the rest. :)

We cannot say enough positive things about Jenn and Ben Ayres. Their style is so personal and approachable and helped us to feel at ease during a very anxiety-provoking time. Their pictures are spectacular and they have a gift at disappearing into the crowd so that you never even notice that they are there. We will be trying to find more excuses to use their services in the future and will be recommending them to everyone we know!

Ben and Jenn are beyond amazing. We had our engagement photos 8 months before the wedding and had a great time getting to know them. They are such a wonderful couple and a great team. We will be able to relive our special day for years to come because of their incredible talent.

Ben & Jenn were true professionals from the first interaction to the quick turnaround of our amazing photos. The care and planning they took to get to know us as couple was perfect. They made sure to understand what our vision was for this special day and made suggestions along the way that made it even more than we imagined. The organization and timing was spot on from start to finish and we never felt rushed or inconvenienced by their interactions, so we enjoyed our day stress free. They were great at controlling groups or rowdy groomsmen or flustered bridesmaids to get a great shot! Ben and Jenn were both to the point and gave easy to follow instructions to ensure they captured everything. If the Photo Booth is not in your plans it should be! The team and setup was awesome and it became a quick highlight for all of our guests. They pictures were quickly posted and everyone's Facebook Picture was from the Photo Booth Days Later! Overall if you're looking for creative, professional and fun photography for any event you can't miss with Ayres Photography!

I honestly cannot possibly say enough good things about Jenn and Ben Ayres. Not only are they totally professional and incredibly skilled photographers, but they're real, genuine, amazing people. They are truly a blessing to work with. They will go above and beyond to make their clients happy. It's obvious that their career as wedding photographers is their passion in life. It makes such a difference working with someone who ENJOYS what they're doing versus someone who treats you like just another date on their calendar. From the very first minute my husband (then fiance) and I met Jenn and Ben we just knew it was a match made in heaven! Completely meant to be. As for the actual photographs: I can't tell you how many people have seen our wedding photographs and simply gasped at how gorgeous they are. So artistic, creative, natural and well composed. Many people (again- an uncountable number) have told me upon seeing our wedding photographs that they are, simply put, the best wedding photographers they have ever seen. Guests at our wedding actually came up to us to express their amazement of how the photographers were hardly seen throughout the night. They kept quiet and silently captured each and every beautiful moment of our day without ever being noticed. We also opted to use the Ayres Photobooth: Boothtastic. This is not a normal booth! It's open air so all of your guests can see just how much fun it is! There are awesome props to use and great backdrop options. So many of our guests said it was the coolest photobooth they've ever seen! It really helped add to the fun and excitement of our reception. Our friends and family are STILL going through all of the silly photobooth images and laughing and reminiscing about how much fun that night was. I could keep going about all of the greatness of Ayres Photography but I'll sum it up by saying this: Jenn and Ben Ayres really truly care. And it shows. <3

Simply amazing! Jenn and Ben were so much fun to work with. They are the vendor you don't have to worry about at all. They were organized and professional the entire day. They never pulled you away from a special moment to take a picture. They were always ready for the next shot and never seemed to be "in the way". (I have seem photographers that always seem to be in the center of everything) I can't wait to get the album, I'm sure it is going to be truly special.
Thank-you so much for sharing your talents with us on our special day, we are so grateful to have had you with us on our wedding day.

Working with Jenn and Ben was amazing--I've only seen our (beautiful) preview photos so far, but I know that the full collection will be equally great.

They're both exceptionally creative, professional, friendly and very talented at what they do! In addition to being awesome photographers, they're also really great people. When I was looking for a makeup artist and Jenn's recommendation was booked, she took it upon herself to call them for me and and figured out that they had staff available to do it--seriously, I don't think many wedding photographers would do that! They were also really great in recommending other vendors (DJ etc) and helping us figure out good places to take our photos. Plus, they're people that we genuinely liked spending time with, which is really important since we spent a huge chunk of our wedding day with them (and their awesome assistant, Hector)!

If you're looking for creative, beautiful wedding photography, definitely look into Ayres!!

The moment I came across Jenn and Ben's website I knew I wanted them to photograph our wedding. All of their pictures were amazing! When we met with them for the first time I knew they would be perfect. They are extremely friendly and just all around awesome people. They actually let us bring our dog to their house for our first meeting! We live in Syracuse and wanted to do our engagement session at a few places around there and J & B had no problem accommodating that. 5 hours, 3 locations and a hike up and down about 100 stairs later...they were both still as smiley and friendly as ever. The pictures were, of course, perfect! Seeing them got me even more excited for the wedding! Since I don't live in Buffalo I wasn't very familiar with vendors around there and Jenn was nice enough to recommend some florists and salons for me. Both of them turned out amazing and I have Jenn to thank for that!! When the big day came, J & B were everything we could have hoped for. Hector was great too! They were never pushy or impatient. They let us do a few crazy group shots and Ben even came up with a great idea for the cheesy heart shaped umbrella I just HAD to have a picture with :) I don't think any other photographer would have been as perfect as they were. Love you guys!!!! :)
