We worked with Ashley Renee Studios for our elopement style wedding video. We were not originally planning on having a videographer but with COVID changing so many plans and family and friends not able to attend we decided to hire them. This was easily the best decision we made!!! We, along with our family and friends, continue to be so impressed with the video and clips they have sent us afterwards. This is the best decisions we made around our wedding planning and I cannot imagine not having that video now. You will not regret booking Ashley Renee Studios. I would give more than 5 stars if I could!!
Ashley and Erik are some of the nicest people I have ever met! They provide such AMAZING work and I could not be more happy with the video and pictures they provided us. They helped us capture our vows after we had to cancel our wedding during COVID, and its something I will always be thankful for. Not only did we receive a beautiful video, but we made some friends in the process. I would 110% recommend them to anyone.
We’re well over a year out from our wedding day, and I still have so many positive things to say about Ashley Renee Studios!
First of all, a videographer was never in the original plan for us, but the most valued advice I ever received was to invest in one. It ended up being the best choice we made, HANDS DOWN. It’s so special to be able to relive those memories at any time, but there’s something so sweet about getting to rewatch the love/excitement/tears/laughter from an outside perspective too. Their work is so great, I assure you you’ll never tire of seeing your own footage.
Next, working with them was a breeze! Without creating any additional stress in the planning process, they managed to get a great feel for who we are as a couple. That didn’t change at all the day of either! They showed up as fast friends and quietly worked their magic in the background. Everybody was very comfortable around them and never felt like they had to act for the camera. They’re kind, fun, intuitive, and easily captured their visions without any degree of pushiness or over-posing. I truly feel they created a film that genuinely portrayed us as a couple, as well as the wedding day as a whole!
You also get a LOT of bang for your buck. Very notably, you have a built in second shooter from the get go. This was great before the ceremony since Ashley was able to stay with me and my party, while Erik was with my husband and his groomsmen. Beyond that it was just amazing in general to have footage of their two different perspectives. They also have all of the fancy equipment! My knowledge of gadgets and technology are pretty limited, but it’s safe to say they come VERY prepared (and they have a drone!).
Lastly, their passion and excitement for their work is very apparent - obvious, really, in how promptly (without quality being spared in the slightest!) I received updates, a sneak peek, then the whole video. Perhaps I’m a broken record at this point, but Ashley and Erik are a huge reason, if not the biggest, that I’m able to have such fond memories of my most favorite day! If I had a reason to rehire them over and over again, I absolutely would. So, in an attempt to sum this up at some point, if you’re considering a videographer, stop thinking about it and start the booking process with Ashley Renee Studios before you miss such a great opportunity!
