Fantastic weddding photographer. We had seen his work before and chose him based on a friend’s recommendation. Very friendly and took tons of pictures and they all turned out great. He went out of his way to accommodate the reception guests. Highly recommend.

Photography is one of the biggest rocks for us. Our wedding day also took place in different atmospheres and through varied types of background. We spent tons of time interviewing and researching photographers. Asa came above all the photographers that we talked to. He is talented and experienced and his price is amazingly reasonable. On the day of, he and his teammate managed to capture all the candid moments without being in the way. He was very pleasant and professional, which definitely helped with managing our overly eager family members.

My wife and I got married in October 2017, so this review comes late but he deserves every bit of praise we can give him. Asa was, at first meet, incredibly professional, kind, and accommodating. We knew we wanted to hire him once we took a look at his portfolios, which illustrated exactly how talented he is. I'll also note that as a same-sex couple, it's really comforting to talk to a vendor and know that we're immediately accepted and treated like any other couple. After we officially hired him, Asa continued to be just as kind and accommodating throughout the year leading up to the wedding day, and made sure to prompt us with things that needed doing (payment, list of groupings, etc.), because we obviously had a lot going on and would have forgotten. On the day of the wedding, EVERYONE loved him. 8 months later, people STILL talk to us about our "awesome ninja photographer." Asa got over 2,000 shots (way more than he initially quoted us at) - and he did so while hardly being seen. He got through the posed pictures in great timing, and then when it was time for portraits of my wife and me, he literally ran around, in his suit, with all of his camera gear, through fields of brush, to get the absolute perfect shots. And now that we have the pictures, I can confirm that it was well worth it, because they are stunning. He made himself available to us throughout the day and evening, and we could not possibly be more thrilled with our decision to go with Asa. A couple weeks after the wedding, Asa gave us a sneak preview of some of his favorite shots, and they were breathtaking. A few weeks after that, he sent us a flash drive with well over 2,000 photos - and he edited more than he said he would, which was lovely. If you want your wedding captured in the best way possible, I urge you to go with Asa. We'll certainly be coming back to him in the future, and will refer everyone we know to him.

Asa was fantastic! He is such a pleasure to be around and such a calming presence on your wedding day. He worked with us and was really flexible to make sure we liked the style in which he lighted and edited our photos. Our wedding guests loved how dedicated he was to getting the perfect shot-- he scrambled through the forest at our outdoor wedding just to make sure he wasn't in the video as my mom and I walked down the aisle. Asa's prices are also really reasonable-- we saved money but didn't feel like we compromised on quality. We highly recommend him!

Having Asa as our wedding photographer was the best choice we made! He was very responsive with emails and accommodating with any questions we had. We did not do an engagement session as we lived out of state, but it felt like we had known him forever when the wedding day came. He made everything very easy and smooth and the end results have been amazing! Asa is very dedicated to getting a great shot and will use whatever tools needed to make it perfect. We have gotten so many compliments on the incredible photos! Definitely would recommend Asa to anyone in the area!

We loved working with Asa! We knew we wanted to work with him on our first meeting - he is easygoing, flexible, and a great communicator. He was extremely unobtrusive - we didn't even notice him during the ceremony yet he was able to take close-up and intimate photos. Asa was also great managing and directing large groups for the family photos. He took a perfect combination of candid photos and portrait shots. We love all the photos and are still having hard time choosing which ones to print. We absolutely recommend him and will definitely work with him again in the future!

Asa was an incredible photographer for our wedding -- professional, friendly, reassuring, creative, and unobtrusive. He was communicative and accommodating from the outset; we very quickly made the decision to choose him as our photographer. At the wedding, he seemed to be everywhere without being at all in the way; he got a ton of great shots, from candid to posed. He had suggestions for what would look good but was never pushy or demanding, and he even got some great pictures of us and our dog! Thank you, Asa! We are thrilled to have such beautiful memories of our day.

Asa did such a phenomenal job with both our engagement and wedding photos! The pictures really speak for themselves, but he was truly a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Throughout the planning process and during the wedding itself, I was able to rely on his expertise and thoughtful advice. He always knew exactly when to take initiative/creative license and when to defer to my personal preferences. Amazingly, he was able to capture all of our guests at their best, as well as key snapshots of our family and wedding party. He was giving beyond 100% all night long, I was so impressed. We have so many amazing shots from the whole event that I have been spending weeks deciding which ones to select as our favorites for printing and framing, there are just so many that we love. Our friends and family also adore the photos - since posting them to our social media, I've had so many of our guests tell me that the pictures have captured the atmosphere of the event perfectly! The turnaround time on all pictures (both wedding and engagement) was excellent as well. I just cannot say enough good things. If you choose Asa for your wedding, or for any occasion really, you are in great hands. Thank you Asa, for capturing the memory of our big day in such a wonderful way! We will be enjoying these pictures for years to come. - The Riddells

Asa was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding! We had a lot of budget and logistical constraints, but he was able to work around these difficulties and craft a cost-effective solution resulting in myriad beautiful photos from our wedding. Moreover, he had processed our photos before we even returned from our honeymoon, and they were absolutely gorgeous! He was speedy without sacrificing quality in the least. He went above and beyond what we had initially agreed upon, advanced processing 56 photos instead of 20, and the flash drive with the photos came in a beautifully wrapped gift box, which was a nice touch. He clearly loves what he does, as evidenced by the care, quality, and efficacy of his work and his calm but contagious joy on the wedding day itself! Highly recommended! -- Gillian & Sasha

My fiancé and I have hired Asa for our upcoming wedding and have more recently done our engagement session with him. Not only is he professional, but very personably, his work is fantastic. The lighting in the pictures turned out beautifully and he really captured our love and happiness. This was exactly why we hired him in the first place. The turn around to receive the images was great and I know I have nothing to worry about when it comes to working with Asa for the wedding or after. I would definitely recommend his services for any occasion you may have! For the high quality of service he provides, he is a steal!

Asa was a truly wonderful find and such a pleasure to work with. Not only does he pay careful attention to lighting and setting, but he also has an amazing knack for establishing naturally posed shots and giving good instruction. My wife and I were also so impressed at his ability to capture beautiful candid shots and his flexibility in honoring photo requests from friends and family. It will truly be difficult to pick the 'best' shots for our album and prints. Asa's preparation was also truly top notch: In advance of our wedding, he sent us a checklist of photo requests, and visited the venue itself to conduct research and get ideas. He fit all of our shot requests into the time we had (including one for a field of cows), was able to corral family members by name, and brought an arsenal of lighting and camera equipment to handle changing conditions throughout the day. Lastly, his promptness merits mention. Whenever we had a question or needed to get in touch, he'd usually respond within a day. He posted a preview of pictures to his Facebook page within two weeks of our wedding, and sent us a nicely wrapped package with a card and our photo flash drive just a little over a month after the wedding. We couldn't be happier with the final product, and Asa's affable nature made the planning and process all that much easier. Grab his services if you can!
