We chose Windy Peak for our wedding photography and couldn't be happier with our finished products! So many of our guests have commented on how great the pictures look. Ashley and Austin were wonderful to work with and they were with us the whole wedding day, capturing each moment. My husband and I had met with them a few times before to discuss details so by the time the wedding came along everything was worked out to the T and we made new friends. We love these guys! We also did a Day After Session with them, which I highly recommend! They got more great shots and are so creative and always up for shooting new places. They were really quick with the pictures too compared with other photographers. Book them for your wedding or event...you won't be disappointed!!!

Ashley and Austin are a great team of photographers who deliver superb photos and customer service. My first experience with them was for my engagement photos, which I absolutely LOVED! So there was no question that I wanted to use them to photograph my wedding. As expected, my wedding photos were all that I thought they would be and more! Ashley and Austin do a great job of catching moments that are not posed and contrived. There passion for what they do is apparent in the qualtiy of their photos.

If you're on the fence about using them, just take a look at there website and view all of the awesome photos. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

What do you need in a photographer? Talent, trust, reasonable price. Check. Check. Check.
What else did I want? Fun, quality, fast.
Check. Check. Check.

I don't know any other brides who had as much fun as I did with our photographers! And, sorry, but no one's engagement/wedding pictures are better than ours! Our Southern style wedding in a historic brick church looks contemporary and clear in our photos. The colors are vibrant, the emotions are vivid, and no one can sneak in a shot like these two and still not get in the way of the action. I don't love the camera but Austin made me feel comfortable. Ashley made the photo selection process afterward easy as pie, which is saying something - I'm indecisive and Ashley was patient.

Oh and the albums they offer are the most beautiful you'll ever see. Really.

You won't be disappointed - Windy Peak is the best vendor I used for my wedding. Love them and their photos. Can't wait to think of a reason to work with them again.

Austin and Ashley are the best! They did an amazing job documenting our wedding and we were so pleased with and would highly recommend them. They have great personalities and were so easy to work with. Ashley made sure to go over everything with me before the wedding and she really put me at ease. They know what they are doing and we ended up with great pictures! The two of them as a team are wonderful!

They took a lot of great photos and didn't seem to mind all of the ridiculous photos I wanted. They offer two photographers for what some charge for just one. I am a big fan of getting the rights to the photos so I can print whatever I want whenever I get around to it instead of feeling the pressure to make my selections and shell out more money after just spending a lot on the rest of the wedding stuff.

They were easy going and mindful that I didn't want the same old photos that most other weddings wanted. We did all humor the parents for family photos, but that wasn't really the photographers choice or ours.

I like that they are a married couple and in my area too. The travel fee wasn't bad at all.

If we have a vow renewal, or pop out a kid, or find some reason to need photography, we would absolutely use them again. I highly recommend.

Like most brides, when I think back on my wedding day…there would be a few things I’d definitely tweak or do differently all together! However, having Windy Peak Photography capture all the priceless moments is NOT one of my decisions I’d ever think of changing! With Windy Peak…you get not only one incredible photographer, but TWO!!! Ashley and Austin are husband and wife themselves, and together, make one heck of a team! It doesn’t take but just a few minutes of looking at some of their work for it to become very evident that they’re not your run-of-the-mill photographers. Ashley and Austin most certainly “bring a lot to the table” with both being so talented and passionate about their work, full of ideas, and having their own unique eye for one-of-a-kind creative shots! They are 100% professional, always punctual, and super friendly and fun! …In other words, they’ve been there, done that, and gotten married…they know what’s important and they strive to please…they ARE the total package!!!

Speaking of packages…they offer several to choose from and all are undoubtedly reasonably priced! My (now) husband and I opted for the package that included engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures. At our engagement shoot, we were both nervous and a little camera shy to say the least! Ashley and Austin worked wonders and within no time we were comfortable in front of the cameras and the photos turned out to be amazing! They seriously made us look like models…America’s Next Top Model, here we come! Ha! Our wedding day came and went in the blink of an eye, and somehow they managed to document it all…and then some! …And if for whatever reason, there is still any ounce of teeny tiny uncertainty in your mind to pick up the phone and call Windy Peak right now…GET THIS…they had all our photos edited, “prettified”, and ready for us to view in record time!!!

As you can tell, I am absolutely, positively, no-doubt-at-all-about-it SO glad that my husband and I chose to have Windy Peak as our photographer for such special occasions! Ashley and Austin are true artists and I would most definitely recommend them and their services!

Austin and Ashley are a fantastic team to work with on your big day! Whether you know exactly what you want or you have no clue, they listen and they take great pictures!

They were so flexible to spend the whole day with us, from dressing to send off with no nickel-and-diming us. My favorite part was that it was as if I never knew they were at the wedding, they blend in and just get the shots and get out.

Tell them what you have in mind and these two are all over it. They are both also very responsive when you have questions or need to make a quick update- which is always good to a frazzled bride!

Ashley and Austin were wonderful to work with. I currently live in Virginia, but married in NC, and needed a photographer who was willing to work with me closely by email and phone. Not only were they quick to respond, but they did so with professionalism and always answered my questions with details. I felt confident I made the right choice for us!
I was married in Bath, NC and had a reception in Washington, NC. While they had never been to these sites, you would never have known. They came in extremely early and spent the whole day with us. They checked the area for the best photo options and came up with some great ideas. They also listened to everything I wanted and happily took the photos I had always hoped for! They made sure to take all of the standard family shots (wishes of my mother) while getting some incredible unexpected photos and outside of the box shots.

One of my priorities in searching for a photography was value and the rights to my photos. Their prices were definitely the best for the value! Having the rights to our photos was also really important to me, with all of the outlets I was hoping to use my pictures for! Additionally, they sent 2 cds, a high and a low resolution, AND it came in a super cute packaging!

Ashley and Austin are extremely laid-back, energetic, and fun. If you are looking for extremely traditional and structured, I would say that they probably aren't the photographers for you!

Ashley & Austin were awesome! We loved that they were a husband/wife team, which allowed for both a male and a female perspective. Having two photographers (for the price of one) also meant getting two different viewpoints for our "big moments". One of their best features is that they offer unlimited hours- which meant that every little detail of our big day was captured (from early morning hair and makeup to an impromptu afternoon wiffle ball game). Ashley and Austin were also so sweet and genuine, and they made everyone feel so comfortable- which resulted in some really genuine and creative candid shots. We have gotten so many compliments on our photos- every always asks, "Who was your photographer!?". We recommend Ashley & Austin enthusiastically, and look forward to working with them in the future!

One of the most important aspects of my wedding was the pictures. I interviewed and researched so many photographers and thankfully came across Ashley and Austin. They were awesome and fit exactly what I was looking for. First, I loved the fact that I was getting two photographers. It was so nice having Ashley spend time with the girls getting ready and Austin with the guys. It was nice to not feel short-changed and get undivided attention before the wedding. Secondly, they were the only photographers interviewed that understood what pictures mean to a wedding and understood exactly what we wanted captured for our day. Our wedding album literally tells a story of the day and the quality was amazing. I have had countless people that attended the wedding ask who our photographers were because they were so good at being inconspicuous, yet getting awesome shots in the meantime. Our pictures are amazing! Lastly, Ashley and Austin are a breeze to work with and are willing to do anything for their costumers. It was very easy to talk to them and they felt more like friends than anything. Having gotten married in the past couple of years, Ashley knew firsthand what it felt like to be a bride and totally thought of things that I had never thought of and reminded me of things I would want pictures of after the fact..things that I might not have originally thought of. Austin is unbelievably professional and has an amazing eye for what looks good and natural backdrops for amazing pictures. He steers clear of cheesy poses and makes anyone look good.
You can't go wrong Windy Peak! I highly, highly recommend them!!

Ashley and Austin are awesome! We loved working with them. I could'nt have been happier having them as our photogs. Our pictures were great and we still cant stop looking at them. We plan on using them for our newborn shoots too:) We were lucky to have found them the way we did. After meeting with them we knew they fit us perfectly. I can highly recommend them to future brides!

Austin and Ashley were one of the best choices made for my daughter's special day. My daughter and her husband made the ultimate decisions on vendors, but as father of the bride (and check writer) I wanted to be sure they were spending my money wisely. And boy did they! Austin and Ashley were very professional but also very, very easy to get along with. It was actually a joy having them around throughout the entire experience! My daughter couldn't have been happier with the results and my family and I now have beautiful, sentimental images of that special day that we will cherish forever. Thank you for being fabulous photographers as well as great new friends!

Windy Peak Photography is a great choice for wedding photography!! After searching for and meeting with many wedding photographers (and being completely shocked at the cost of wedding photography) they really gave us the most for our money, no one else even came close. Everything we wanted was able to be put into a package deal, including two photographers and unlimiited hours. They were always on time, one step ahead, and very professional. We had a ton of great pictures, and you never even knew they were there!! I would 100% recommend Austin and Ashley to anyone looking for wedding photography!

Ashley and Austin were the photographers I chose after rummaging through 20+ websites and ads for wedding photographers. I had my wedding 11/12/11 at Castle McCulloch. They were so accommodating and understood my limited budget. They had very affordable packages with a high degree of professionalism and artistic eye. They are not amateurs. You can see talent in every shot they took at the wedding. I have gotten so many compliments on every photo and they captured everything I wanted them to. Ashley even helped me out when my bridesmaids failed to do so. She drove me to the venue from the hair salon! The photos were in and ready for viewing in less than a month and I can not be happier with how they turned out. These are my favorite memories and I would not have chosen any other photographers to take them. I will definitely be calling them again for family photos and when my husband and I start our family. 
They provided all copy rights to me and gave me a cd with low and high resolution photos. I recommend their services to everyone. My maid of honor's mom commented-"I wish I chose a great photographer like Maha did for my wedding 30 years ago".
