Ashley Forrette Photography
Ashley was amazing to work with. She has a really good eye for what makes a beautiful unique picture. She is so easy to get along with and we were very comfortable with her, despite the fact that usually photos can be awkward. At both our engagement and wedding she brought along Aaron Courtier who has his own photography business and shares an office with Ashley. I would highly suggest having both of them if you can as it allowed for Ashley to spend our wedding day taking pictures while the girls got ready and Aaron to take pictures with the boys. Double the photographers, double the pictures! I love that we aren't required to buy expensive prints, she just gives us our DVD with all of our edited photos with rights to print where we want. We also get a professional bound photo book which is just perfect. Ashley can truly capture your day so you remember it perfectly forever. I would highly recommend her!
Ashley is not only a talented photographer, but a person with emotion, style and class. She knows her business so well- she made our entire wedding party feel comfortable, relaxed, and managed to make them all laugh. She got every single important moment- and got them PERFECTLY. She did an incredible job of getting detail shots AND big picture moments... I cannot say enough good things about her. She blows me away every time I see photos she has taken. In addition, she was extremely communicative and her response time to emails and calls was impeccable. She is a true professional, not to mention an awesome person.
We are thrilled with the wedding pictures Ashley took of our daughter's wedding. They are simply beautiful. Ashley captures the true essence of a scene, event or individual. Her attention to detail and her innovative creativity are without parallel. Ashley's demeanor and professionalism brings out the best in her subjects, so much so that the end result is a natural depiction. Thank You Ashley
I knew from the SECOND I saw Ashley's photos on her blog that I HAD to have her photograph our wedding! You can see the emotion in her pictures and that's exactly what I wanted. I wanted a photographer that would be able to capture our feelings on our big day so when people looked at our photos they'll be able to see and "feel" our happiness and the love we have for each other.
Ashley also shot our engagement photos and they were amazing. She just has a way of making everyone look good in photos. The angles she uses are fresh and original and she's always trying to find new techniques to make her photos the best.
I haven't been able to see all of our wedding photos yet, since it's been only a couple weeks now, but with the photos that I've been shown so far are amazing and I can't wait to see the rest!
Thank you so much Ashley for being such an amazing photographer!
Ashley had fun, creative ideas for photographing my daughter's engagement and wedding photos. My daughter and son-in-law are so happy with the all the high-quality photos. And they just loved working with Ashley and Aaron Courter.
We highly recommend Ashley Forrette Photography.
Ashley is AMAZING! My husband and I used her for both our engagement photos and our day of photography. Ashley has the talent to catch emotion in her pictures, which is rare. You literally can "feel" the events emotion from her pictures, which is priceless. My husband and I will now have the memory of the most important day of our lives captured forever, and we can not thank her enough for this!
Ashley was personal, professional, and punctual, which were all very important to us. Ashley met with us prior to our events to discuss what we wanted from our photos, and what specific photos we wanted. This made the day of so easy. Neither myself, nor my husband are models, but somehow Ashley made us feel so comfortable, that we didn't feel silly taking our portrait pictures. And the best part is our photos are GORGEOUS!
I would highly recommend Ashley Forrette Photography to you. A picture is forever, and we can't thank her enough for the BEAUTIFUL memories we will have forever!
I am inspired by true love and passionate people. To me, taking photos is like catching magic... capture enough and it can make your dreams come true. With every photo I snap, I am living my dream — photo by photo, moment by moment. I put my entire heart into what I do and would be honored to photograph any of the special moments life may throw your way.

How long have you been shooting?
I started taking photos in 2003, and shot my first wedding in 2006.
How many photos do you take per shoot?
Describe your style?
Fun, real, romantic, sassy, cute, and soulful.
Do you do destination weddings?
Yes! I love them. Please email me for rate information.
Why should we do the engagement session?
The session is a great time to get to know one another better, and for you to get comfortable with my shooting style before the wedding.
Why should we do the “day after” session?
Day after sessions allow amazing opportunities to get the creative out of the norm images and locations that are not always possible on your wedding day. I highly recommend this session to couples that do not want to see each other before the ceremony for photos. That way you can spend time with your guests and enjoy the wedding and still get the extra special portraits that take a bit of time to shoot.
