Emily + AJ


October 23, 2020

The couple – fantastic!  The venue- breathtaking!  This was my first time in Emerald Isle, NC and it was beautiful.  The venue staff at Crystal Coast Country Club was very kind and helpful.  Emily and AJ were amazing and really had fun together that day from the woods at sunrise all the way to the […]

"Ashley did my son's newborn pictures and his Christmas pictures. She was FANTASTIC! the set up she had for the newborn pictures was awesome, a pillow for little dude to lay in, some different backdrops, great lighting! The Christmas pictures that she did couldn't have turned out any better! I am beyond happy with them. Zeke was having a cranky night but she worked with it and just rolled with the punches. Looking at the pictures, you have have never know he was crying one second and picture ready the next."

"Ashley took photos of my son (4) and I and she was very patient and professional! She helped keep his attention and has creative ideas for great shots. She has an eye for what colors and backgrounds will work well in photos. I used her photos on Christmas cards and everyone loved them! Very speedy turnaround time too. Thanks Ashley!"

"Ashley photographed my bridal shower. She was super sweet, professional, and great to work with. She caught all of the big moments and even the little ones that you wouldn’t think to catch. Overall I would recommend her for any event you want to remember forever."

"We had such a great experience with Ashley! She photographed my soon to be sister-in-law’s bridal shower. She had such creative picture ideas. One of my favorites, was a picture of the shower favors with the bride’s flowers. Instead of picking random favors, Ashley chose mine and the bride’s. It was so thoughtful! She got pictures of the decorations and guests and captured all of the sweet moments. Having her there took away from everyone being on their phones wanting to get pictures. Ashley’s beautiful pictures are now a special memory we will have forever. We were so lucky to have Ashley capture this special day!"

“I couldn't be happier with my experience with Ashley Hartzog Photography! Ashley was willing to book our engagement photo session on extremely short notice, which we really appreciated. She provided a variety of location options for us to choose from, and enthusiastically trekked all over Pittsburgh to get the perfect pictures for us. Ashley made us feel comfortable being in front of the camera, took amazing pictures, and was a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend hiring Ashley Hartzog photography for your special event!”
