Tom did a great job for us!

He helped us select very good shooting spots, so that we covered all basic types of background: nature, water, architecture.
On the wedding day he cheered us up the whole day, so our smiles looked very natural even near the end of the day.
In general, he was very helpful, responsive, and comfortable to work with.

The final photos were delivered just a couple of days behind the deadline set in the contract, but just in time we needed them most.
They were carefully selected and slightly retouched/enhanced where needed.

Look forward to working with him again!

I just got married a few days ago and couldn't wait to write a fabulous review for Documentary Associates because they are phenomenal!!! We knew from the moment we met Ashlee that we had found the perfect photographer to capture all the special moments on our wedding day. Her talent is seriously unrivaled, and her professionalism and style is out of this world. We are SO thrilled with the choice we made and HIGHLY recommend Documentary Associates!!!

I want to echo all the other glowing reviews of Ashlee's work. She managed to make me look like I belonged next to my beautiful bride. She's as much an artist as a photographer, and the pictures came out fantastic. Ashlee's calm, professional demeanor kept my bride from being stressed during the photo session right after the service, and I can't thank her enough for that. She also got some stellar shots at the reception... she made the Baltimore harbor into a perfect background against the setting sun. We will cherish these pictures forever.

Tom and Ashlee are one of the funnest and coolest husband & wife team out there! Tom was the main lead on our photography, but Ashlee was always there to help stage the photo and effectively direct our group. We also did an engagement session with Tom in advance of our wedding, which was such a fun, laid back few hours in which we felt completely comfortable. When it came to both our engagement and wedding photos, everyone raved how incredible everything turned out. Documentary Associates did a great job at capturing our personalities and our special day in a unique way. In addition to the standard portrait shots, there was a fantastic array of candids and special moments that were caught in a photojournalistic fashion. There are truly a lot of amazing gems we will treasure for years to come! Tom and Ashlee were flexible when we requested a few additional edits to the proofs we received, and we received everything in a timely manner. They were both also so great about communication which was incredibly important to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Documentary Associates to future brides & grooms!

Unparalleled service and professionalism. Ashley not only made us feel comfortable, we also felt that she was absolutely the best at using the light to properly reflect the best photos of the wedding. Google their site and you will be amazed. Everyone should use these photographers.

Documentary Associates perfectly captured our evening. They understood the vision we had and were able to deliver, without being intrusive or disruptive to anyone. They were professional but fun at the same time. We really can't recommend them enough.

Tom at Documentary Associates was wonderful. He is a very skilled photographer and I highly recommend his services. Our pictures came out beautiful. He was extremely professional working with our family and friends and made sure to get the photos we needed (and wanted) done in the allotted time. We loved working with him, especially my husband who hates being in front of the camera!

We got beautiful photos from our wedding. Thomas is organized and direct and able to put together beautiful photos of large groups or small groups. He blended into the wedding and took beautiful photos we hardly even noticed him there. Amazing work, we are thrilled!
