"Ashley and Brandon were like having super talented members of your family take the pictures.  They just flowed with our group and then created the most amazing pictures.  Ashley is incredibly talented and creative.  She also has the ability to capture sweet spontaneous moments that capture the feel of the wedding.  My son is not big on all the attention that comes along with a wedding, and yet Ashley and Brandon had him so at ease that he actually enjoyed all the picture taking.  Seeing the expression on his face while he said his vows brings me to tears. Your child getting married is a big deal.  A once in a lifetime moment.  I have NO regrets about the photography.  I would choose A Family Affair again if I magically had it to do over again.  I feel like I relive the sweet feel of the day each time I look at the pictures.  I completely and whole heartedly recommend them."  -Karen Spaulding

"Our family has hired Ashley for numerous occasions, including engagement photo sessions and milestone birthday parties. She has a tremendous way of relating to her clients and getting the 'perfect shot.' When photographing large groups, Ashely makes sure to include every person that is present and is also able to capture all of the key moments with no instruction necessary. She is extremely efficient in getting the photos retouched and returned to the client and is willing to accommodate any extra needs one might have, such as extra copies of proof cds or help with creating a memorable album with the pictures. Each and every time we have used Ashley, she has been a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to any person looking for an up and coming professional photographer." - Jennie

"We were so pleased and impressed with her services.   The particular day we chose to have our family photos taken it rained!   We had the best of plans to take our photos behind our home with the awesome common ground in the background.  Well, thanks to St. Louis weather, our idea was destroyed!   Ashley was able to quickly come up with a solution and our family photos turned out great!   We have so many photos of our baby girl as well since we weren't the best with keeping up with her first year!  Thank you so much for a professional job well done!  We love how our pictures turned out!   We are always recommending her to family and friends when they mention needing a photographer."  - Kim and Clay

"Ashley was the total package. I shopped around for a long time for photographers, and everyone was so much more expensive for so much less. I had more frames and more usable prints than I would have with any other photographer. My best friend said that her wedding photographer had wasted 30 frames on champagne being poured, and another photographer said he didn’t even take pictures of the cake cutting! I was very happy that Ashley listened to what I wanted and respected my wishes so that I had pictures of friends and family, and not dozens and dozens of pictures of inanimate objects. I had a great combo of the traditional pics of the party across the altar, journalistic-style pics of us leaving the church, great outdoors pics, and even some great non-traditional pics at White Castle! She was prepared for everything, and even when it started pouring rain, she still had some great ideas for pics that turned out beautifully. She was very pleasant to work with as well, and put up with a lot of craziness that day. I would recommend her to anyone!" -Beth

"My husband and I decided to have family portraits made, but wanted to have the photos done in our home.  As a result, I googled local photographers and of the three I inquired, Ashley was the first to respond and was very impressionable with her attitude and will to please us, as customers.  Always a little weary about doing business on line, my husband and I made an appointment anyway and was very pleased with the service and quality of pictures provided.  Ashley was wonderful and provided continuous follow-up and communication.  I have recommended and will continue to use her service whenever we have a need for additional portraits."-Gwen
