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. :)

I cannot say enough about Ayres Photography. While going through the planning process, I was alarmed and so surprised at how many vendors seemed uninterested- some were down right rude. From the moment I met Jenn and Ben, there was a warmth and kindness about them both that made me feel we were in the very best hands. Every step of the way, Jenn was always available for any question or concern I had, and when the big day came, I was certain that they would capture the most extraordinary moments of our day. We were not disappointed- in fact, completely blown away at the amount of photos we received, their quality, and their content. This day goes by so fast- and you want someone like Jenn and Ben there to capture moments you would otherwise forget. Thank you Ayres Photography!!!

I am going to try and put into words how simply exquisite Jenn and Ben are as wedding photographers. I loved having our consultation at their house, they are very personable and really wanted to get to know us! We filled out information for the day of, they were very organized and even helped me figure out the timeline for the day. They were both prompt, and gave off calming, happy vibes the day of. They faded into the background but captured EVERYTHING! Ben joked around with the guys, their photos came out very natural because of this (sometimes the guys can appear awkward lol and it was one of my worries) There was a moment in the midst of the morning where I was stressed because two of my bridesmaids were late to get ready and I was concerned I would be missing the group shots. Jenn turned to me sincerely and asked if there was anything she could do to help and assured me we could capture more group shots when we got to the venue-you are not just hiring photographers, you are inviting helpful friends to your wedding-and that made me feel indescribably better. I felt comfortable to be myself. I also worried about family dynamics, and possibility of some drama-not even an issue because whatever tension there was, Jenn and Ben handled it swift fully and professionally. There was a moment where the venue event manager was being sassy to my groom, Ben stepped in to diffuse and avert the potential centerpiece "crisis". I look back on my day and smile because they had our back, they were on team Bride and Groom, and carried out whatever wishes or photo requests we wanted. I have no regrets about choosing them as our photo team, or about paying the amount we did for their quality of service and amount of time they spent with us. My pictures are breathtaking, guests and family members comment frequently how exceptional the results are. I consider them our friends, and have selected them to take our maternity session and family photos in the future :)

We had Nicole do our wedding and she was fabulous! She was so sweet, friendly and genuinely wanted to document our float like it was her own! She has a great artistic eye, was so easy to work with and willing to do anything for the pictures we wanted. Jenn and Ben did a great job building our gallery and got us any additional pictures we wanted. Jenn is quick to respond and very helpful. I would recommend them for anything from a wedding to a bday party!

From my very first conversation with Jenn of Ayres Photography I knew I needed to look no further for our wedding photographer. Firstly Jenn is such a lovely person, so friendly and easy going that immediately she set my mind at ease. To add to this Jenn quickly understood our desire to keep our small and intimate wedding ceremony relaxed and down to earth. She was super responsive and easy to work with. In terms of value for money, we couldn't be happier. We were just blown away by how incredible our wedding photos are and how accurately Jenn captured the essence of our day and also of us as a couple. Even at our small wedding Jenn just blended into the background so we have some fantastic candid shots too. We can't recommend Jenn and Ayres Photography highly enough. Thank you!! Laura & Drew.

We had a small, intimate ceremony in February on our 10 year anniversary that we wanted captured. I loved the style of Ayres Photography and contacted them to talk to them about our ceremony. I spoke with Jen both through email and on the phone. She suggested one of their team photographers, Nicole Argo. We signed a contract with them to have Nicole come out for 1.5hrs and to get the digital files of our photos so we could have them printed at will. Nicole was very friendly and easy to work with! My son did not want to cooperate at all (he was 1.5yrs old at the time), but she still managed to get some lovely photos with him. Nicole is a great asset to the Ayres Photography team.

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.

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Jenn and Ben. We really appreciated when first contacting them that Jenn took the time over the phone to tell us what to look for in good photographers. From the first phone call they were very flexible working with a couple from out of the country. They were excellent to communicate with over email. We left a fair number of the decisions in their hands – they’re the professionals! – and we weren’t disappointed.

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
