We originally pursued Ashley for her natural ability to incorporate nature into her pictures and how she always seemed to find the simple beauty in her surroundings as we were eloping at the Grand Canyon, at sunrise.
We were so pleasantly surprised that she didn't just have talent, but also was amazing to work with. I cannot express strongly enough how much we both absolutely LOVED working with her. From how incredibly calm, kind, and relaxing she is to speak with and work with to her organization and creativity.
She had brilliant ideas for one of a kind pictures and was flexible as we worked our way through all the pictures we wanted to take. She gave me the room I needed to be overly organized and anal as well as kept me calm when things, as they always do at weddings - no matter the size, didn't go exactly the way I had hoped.
I find myself getting lost in the pictures that she took of us and how effortlessly they captured the moments. I look at the photos and can remember how the moment felt, even now, months later. Thank you for capturing our day and encasing those memories for all eternity for us. It means the world to us.

I found Ashley on instagram a few months before our big day. Out of all the photographers I contacted Ashley was quick to respond, professional, and very flexible with the little time we had to plan. Not only was I very pleased with her professionalism, but she made our wedding day something to remember forever. I’m constantly receiving complements from family, friends, and strangers. My only advice when purchasing a package from Ashley, is to buy the one with the most photos included. I had a very difficult time choosing from the photos, because they were all stunning! If you’re looking for unique jaw dropping photos, Ashley is your photographer!

Ashley is simply amazing. Outside of her incredible talent, she was so much fun to work with!!!! She flew all the way from Albuquerque to Boston to shoot our wedding and couldn’t have been more easy to work with. She was so kind and truly made the day comfortable and special. We are SO glad to have such beautiful photos to remember our special day.

I’m so happy we chose Ashley Joyce photography for our wedding! She was professional, prompt, helpful, and the photos turned out AMAZING! I would(and have) recommended her to everyone I know.

Ashley is not only hilarious and professional, she’s kind and the best at what she does. I gained a friend who gave me the best gift of capturing our wedding. 500% recommend her to anyone I know. I will utilize her in the future again!

We have had the most wonderful experience with Ashley, she is truly amazing and talented. Our engagement pictures have been by far our favorite element in our wedding preparation. Ashley listened to what we wanted and created a concept that completely exceeded our expectations. The location suggested by her, fits our theme and relationship perfectly. We know she went out of her way to provide what would make us happy and to make the photo shoot day fun. She is incredibly accommodating, profesional, driven and talented. We can not wait to see our wedding pictures! I am so thrilled we found her!

Oh where to begin! Ashley is just such a gem, my husband and I are so grateful to have found her. I was initially attracted to her photography because of the romantic candid vibe she always brings to her photos. We planned a small wedding in Santa Fe (which she drove all the way to from Albuquerque), though we were coming from Michigan, and Ashley made the whole process seamless with skype meetings and timely e-mails beforehand.
On the day of the wedding she arrived early and got right to her business photographing the grounds. Now let me tell you, I've been in bridal parties before where the photographer was pushy and very "in your face", making the whole day a little more stressful and the photos always come out looking a little forced. Ashley however, is a master at her art, she didn't force us into any awkward poses or anything uncomfortable. If anything, she was a calming energy to have throughout the day. She made sure my hair tie was off my wrist (thank you for that!) and even directed who should walk when during the processional. I seriously don't know what we would have done without her!
Then of course, when the actual photos were edited and came back I was brought to tears. The photos brought me right back to that day. She did such an amazing job at capturing those emotions and moments with beautiful angles and perspectives. She also got a wide variety of photos of all the guests and special little moments I didn't get to see during the wedding myself.
Seriously. Real talk. If you need a photographer in the Albuquerque area, DO NOT hesitate to call up Ashley. She is an incredibly sweet soul and a true artist. Her work was worth every penny, and these photos will be memories that we will keep with us forever. I'm not exaggerating when I say our wedding would not have been the same without her presence. Thank you Ashley!
Marta & Tom
After our first meeting we knew we wanted Ashley to be our photographer. Ashley photographed our engagement photo session as well as our wedding. Neither of us had a photo session done before, but thanks to her professionalism and great very warm personality we felt very comfortable working with her. At our meeting she wanted to get to know us, learn our stories wanted to know our expectations and vision. Ashley was open to our ideas and suggestions and also shared her experience with us, which helped us to get a better picture of our special day. She communicates very well and is on top of her email. The quality and skill of her work is amazing, she does not make just a photo, it is art! We got our gallery a few days ago and absolutely love it :)
Shawna & Joey
Our story with Ashley Joyce began the way many great friendships start - having a couple beers. We had scheduled several photographers to interview that day, and our planners Vicki and Jerry set up our meeting with Ashley at a local brewery to soften the potential first-date jitters. Joey and I both admitted later we felt she was "the one" the moment she walked in. Ashley has a kindness and calmness about her that puts everyone at ease. After learning a little about her and then describing what we were looking for with our wedding, Ashley walked us through her creative concept. By the time we finished our beer, we told Vicki and Jerry to cancel the other photographer interviews, knowing we were in good hands.
Our deeper friendship with Ashley developed when she came to Chicago, our home, to shoot engagement pictures. We were both very nervous, as neither of us is very comfortable in front of the camera. But Ashley's steady hand helped us find our peace, as she captured our love for the city, and for each other. After the perfect sunset light faded, the three of us joined other friends for dinner and drinks, exploring the Chicago night life together.
The Big Day rushes by in a blur, and we are certain it's difficult to separate specific photographers from the pack when it comes to wedding day photos. But in describing her influence on our wedding weekend, the most incredible gift Ashley gave us was her ability to capture all we couldn't see. We are still amazed, every time we look at our photos, at the expanse of experiences our guests shared while our attention was focused elsewhere. Ashley allowed us to simply be in our moment with each other, while she weaved the rest of the tapestry for us through her artistry. This is the true genius of her craft.
Words will never fully express our gratitude for her vision, or for her friendship.
Tessa & Casey
What can I possibly say? Having Ashley photograph our wedding was just like having a close friend hanging out with us. We never felt uncomfortable or even aware of the camera, and her photography is documentary art. She joked later that she must have had a crew working with her behind the scenes because it seemed like she was able to be multiple places at once. It's incredible what she was able to do with just one camera. We will never forget this day, and that's because we were happy, supported, and we have these images to last us a lifetime. We could not have made a better decision having Ashley there to document the whole thing. She goes above and beyond and also happens to be a great person to spend the day with! We simply cannot thank her enough!
