Testimonials about ashley Nesbitt photography

Thank you all for adding lovely messages whether it be from facebook or in card and emails. Here are just a few quotes about me here at Ashley Nesbitt photography:

Mr & Mrs Scrimgeour

"We first met the very cheerful Ashley at a wedding fair in York, by which time we already thought we had decided on our photographer and told him so. Despite that, Ashley volunteered to share with our chosen man his own knowledge of the venue, the Royal York, good spots to take shots etc. When our plans changed, remembering that very positive unselfish conversation, we approached Ashley and hired him for our wedding. Ash talked us through his ideas for the shots of our big day which fitted our requirements perfectly. Come the day of the wedding he made it very easy for both us and our guests to allow him to take so many outstanding photographs. There were the usual formal shots but he seems to excel with the informal shots taken when he just seems to have been able to blend in with the guests. Vanessa was struggling with the effects of her illness but, knowing this, Ashley always managed the angles and poses so that her photographs would reflect her good side. Vanessa passed away peacefully in April. Through his great attention to detail, cheerful banter and ensuring that we got the photographs which we wanted, Ashley created a remarkable visual memorial of a remarkable woman on what was, in her own words, the happiest day of her life.  "

Mr & Mrs Miller

"Ashley's passion for his work is very apparent. He puts his heart and soul into making sure all the wedding party is relaxed and comfortable. Speaking as a bride Ashley made me feel a million dollars, calmed me down beforehand and made me and lots of the wedding party laugh out loud on more than one occasion with his 'T & T'. He has a cracking sense of humour and most definitely deserves to be recognised for his excellent work."

Mr & Mrs Hill

"We received a fantastic service from our first initial meeting with Ashley to the day of our wedding. Ashley was brilliant with the guest's through out the day it was awesome that as professional he still enjoyed the day as much as all the other guests. The quality of the pictures were superb we couldn't of asked for a better service. if we had to do it again I wouldn't pick a better photographer the job."

Mr & Mrs Richards

"Excellent service and manner. Incredibly friendly and helpful from initial meeting through to the big day. Has kept in regular contact. None of my out of the norm requests phased him And ash was as enthusiastic as we were. He genuinely listened to what we wanted and Adapted our requirements to the photography- combining our ideas to the practical Side ensuring the pictures were taken to the best quality. He was like a ninja on the day. We only saw him when we needed to but he has managed to take nearly 500 pictures most of which we weren't aware of.. The sign of a truly great photographer. The pre wedding meet was fantastic and we bounced off each other for the entire time.. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer and can't wait to get to together for the final stages of the album."

Mr & Mrs Westwell

"Absolutely above and beyond in every area! Ashley helped with my dress on the day he also watched how to put my veil in so he could help during the day! He made us feel so relaxed and calm and ALL guests commented how funny and lovely he was! He was willing to take photos on others cameras and didn't rest until he got the shots he wanted! Made our day!"

Mr & Mrs Kirk

"Ash who runs his own photography company goes so much more than the extra mile. He is truly helpful and does nothing but put you at ease. He listens to what you want out of the photos he takes and makes it happen. The quality of his work is above and beyond just like his great customer service. I always recommend him to anyone I know who's going to get married because he is such a hard worker and gives excellent service in every way."

Mr & Mrs Gallagher

"Ashley is just fantastic. From the minute we met Ash, we both felt as though we had known him all of our lives. Ash made a real impression on us and our friends & family throughout the whole process, from booking the initial appointment with him to the very last goodbye on our wedding day. He made everyone feel at ease, he is very professional, but yet has such a great sense of humour, making the whole process so fun and exciting. Ash was always at hand, any questions or any advice we needed he had the answers! I work within the hotel industry and come across a lot of photographers at the weddings we hold and I can honestly say, I will only ever recommend Ashley. No other photographers have made half the impression that Ash did."

Mr & Mrs Brown

"Ashley made us feel extremely comfortable with the photographs from the first time we met him, when normally we are quite camera shy! He fit into the day so well lots of people thought he was a family friend or that we had known him for several years, he truly put everyone at real ease. The wedding photos we have now seen are also truly beautiful and capture the spirit of the day- we felt like we didn't even spend much time posing for photographs but Ashley managed to capture some really lovely moments which is just what we wanted. Ashley even stayed later past when we had booked him until to capture a few extra photos of the night do and really went above and beyond what he was required to do to make our day extra special."

Mr & Mrs Hudson

"Ash gave us so much time before the wedding, and made sure he knew exactly what we wanted. He was fantastic, and got us the package we wanted. Having so many beautiful pictures we are still sifting through them as just cannot choose!!!!! He is an absolutely fantastic photographer who got all of our guests smiling and really connected with everybody. Ash is very deserving because he really puts his clients first."

Mr & Mrs Lang

"Quality of service and communication was outstanding from start to finish. Despite having only met Ash a month or so before the wedding, one of our guests asked if we'd known him for a long time 'because he seems just like a member of the family'. We can offer no higher commendation of his performance in enhancing our wedding day."

Mr & Mrs Brandon

"Ashley Nesbitt Photography delivered everything we asked for in a photographer. We wanted a mix of formal and relaxed photos and Ashley was happy to deliver that. He made us and all our guests feel very relaxed all day and many guests commented on how friendly and professional he was. We received the digital photos within 2 weeks of the wedding and they were everything we had hoped for and more. The quality was brilliant. All in all they delivered a first class service which was amazing value for money given the quality and number of pictures we received and the amount of time they spent with us on the day and before the wedding making sure everything was perfect for us. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a top quality, value for money, friendly and accommodating service."

Mrs & Mrs Robinson

"Ashley gave us both a professional and personal service. Ashley instantly made us feel welcome and was always contactable to discuss anything that we needed to clarify. During the wedding he made me and my wife feel so comfortable in front of the camera, which is not somewhere I usually feel at ease. By doing this he managed to capture some moments that we will cherish. I would recommend him both for the quality of his work, but also for his faultless customer service, where you were made to feel like an individual and friend not just a customer. All wedding guests commented upon how lovely he was."

Mr & Mrs Clarkson

"Amazing service throughout. Ashley is brilliant at making his subjects feel at ease and enjoy the process. He was more like having a friend at the wedding than a business. Nothing was too much trouble. He travelled around 100 miles round trip to capture the bride getting ready and then back to the venue, were he took the time to get every shot we had suggested, not expecting to get them all done. The quality of his photography is second to none and we are more than proud when showing the photos to friends and family. We couldn't have had a better service. Absolutely outstanding and highly recommended"

Mr & Mrs Nattress

"As we live in Carlisle but were getting married in York I was dreading tryin to find a photographer as my main communication was via email for arrangements. After googling York photographers and seeing Ashley's portfolio online and his price list I emailed him with my details. He got back straight away with a very good price and more examples of his work. We booked straight away and arranged to meet up next time we were in York. After meeting him we knew we had been right choosing him. He was lovely and had a great sense of humour and totally put us at ease. He could answer any questions we had and knew what he was talking about as we walked round our chosen location. We kept in touch over email and text until the wedding but I was completely happy that everything was sorted. The day of the wedding he tagged us on Facebook which is just a small thing but was nice and made me feel special. The whole day was wonderful and unlike some weddings wasn't taken over by the photographer. He was very discreet but the pictures were excellent. Unlike a lot of weddings I've been too we weren't immediately dragged off for hours away from our party to do photos as Ashley appreciated we wanted to speak to people. Every one of our guests commented on how nice and friendly he was he even showed some of my friends the best way to get good photos. Most photographers have to be centre of attention and don't like guests takin photos at the same time so that was really nice of him. Once the wedding was finished we went on honeymoon for a week. When we got back the disc with the photos on was waiting for us. Ashley also wrote saying if there was any ammenents we wanted or different edits just to let him know. The photos were all wonderful and a lot more than we expected! I think there was around 200 photos overall which made it very hard to pick a favourite. Overall the whole service from start to finish was above what we could have asked for or expected from a photographer and I have never been to a wedding yet with someone as good."

Mr & Mrs Howell

"Ashley was fantastic in the run up arranging and organising all of the shoots and making sure that we was aware and happy with what was going to happen on the day. All of our guests commented that they felt at ease and the shoots were done in a fun relaxed way. Finally the completed photos were fantastic and represented great value for money capturing our day perfectly"

Mr & Mrs Woosley

"Was made to feel that nothing was no trouble , family and friends all commented on how friendly and professional the photographer was. Pictures were great!"

Mr & Mrs Percival

"Ashley was everything we could have hoped for in a wedding photographer and more. He has a gift of making you feel like you've been friends for years, and as such is able to make you relax and bring out the best in your wedding photos. We would recommend him to everyone and, most importantly, the photos were beautiful!"

Mr & Mrs Hodgson

"Ashley was amazing on our wedding day. He was so friendly and really put everyone at ease. My family all really enjoyed the time and effort he put in to making them look good! I really can't recommend Ash highly enough for the work he does."

Mr & Mrs Childs

"Ashley has this warm, friendly, bubbly and passionate personality which we saw the moment we met him. We knew immediately he was the guy for us for our wedding day. He listened to what we wanted and helped us organise the list of shots that we wanted. All our guests loved him and we sure did too. He made us feel very relaxed during the photographs and we couldn't of thanked him more. He deserves to win this award without a shadow of doubt."

Mr & Mrs Mills

"Ashley was the perfect wedding photographer. Charismatic, professional and very knowledgeable on knowing just what we'd like. The photos are of incredible quality and serve as the perfect reminder of our special day. We have spent many a night just looking over the photos and reminiscing! I would recommend him in a flash to any of my friends that were going to get married in the York and surrounding area."

Mr & Mrs Archer

"We had Ashley Nesbitt for our photographer at our wedding, and I can not recommend anyone enough. Right from the start he had everyone in giggles and smiling away. We chose Ash, from day one, knowing he had a brilliant personality. From attending others peoples weddings, I know the most boring part of the day for the guests, is the photographs, so it was important to me to ensure we had a fun, bubbly photographer to make it enjoyable for guests, which this was Ash right from the start when we met him. We received many comments from guests about how great Ash was and made the photos enjoyable. Not only was he bubbly and fun, after the wedding he kept in touch with us, letting us know when our album will go live online. I told Ash my Dad passed away shortly after the wedding, and he therefore sent me a few screenshots of his work of me and my Dad. This meant the world to me that i could see some photos of my dad. It was a very thoughtful thing for him to do and very touching. Ash keeps in touch and is always telling us to pop in for a coffee and catch up whenever we are passing."

Mr & Mrs Hudson

"Amazing person to work with, Ash got us and our guests going and thoroughly enjoying the photos! He captured our day perfectly, and used our ideas brilliantly. He met with us beforehand and gave us the time to discuss our day. Ash was brilliant with every guest, and has been talked about by every guest full of compliments since! An incredible photographer will recommend every time."

Mr & Mrs Hipkiss

"From our first meeting with Ashely he immediately put us at ease, something which was really important to us as we're not naturally at home in front of the camera! In the run up to the wedding Ashley was always really helpful and accommodating but he really came into his own on the actual day. Rather than feeling like a stuffy photographer Ashley just felt like one of our guests, he was fun, creative and always managed to get a smile even from the most unwilling of subjects! Even our guests commented on how great he was. The real proof of his skill is in the quality of the photos he's given us, they just capture the mood of the day perfectly and look so natural, we couldn't be more pleased. We really can't thank him enough, not just for the lovely photos, but for being part of our day."

Mr & Mrs Charlton

"Ashley delivers a friendly and professional service from start to finish. His positivity is infectious. Ashley went the extra mile capturing the day perfectly but also taking extra pictures of guests at their request."

Mr & Mrs Harrison

"Ash is absolutely fantastic. He did everything he could to make us feel as relaxed as possible on the wedding date. All of our guests commented on how great he was and that he blended into the background. I would thorough recommend That everybody uses Ashley Nesbitt photography."

Mr & Mrs Kilpatrick

"One of the most genuine, nicest people we've met! Nothing was too much for Ashley and he did exactly what we wanted! All out guests at the wedding commented on what a nice guy our photographer was! He made a real effort with everybody not just us the bride and groom! Even swapping emails you really felt like you had known this guy for years and he was your friend!!"

Mr & Mrs Dawson

"Ashley went above and beyond for us. Without hesitation he help us by taking the groomsmen's flowers to the venue after they were delivered to the wrong place. He helped us in any way he possibly could to make our day perfect. He was more than just a photographer. Everyone commented on how lovely he was, we couldnt thank him enough for how he helped make our day special. Before, during and after he has been nothing but helpful and proffessional. Truley a great guy."

Mr & Mr Wood

"Ashley was fantastic before during and after the wedding. He has been extremely attentive to all our wishes and the details. As we were having same-sex wedding we were particularly anxious about being photographed and he was so very sensitive about this and yet made the day extremely fun. Everybody had a positive word to say about him and we really enjoyed being with him. I was especially impressed by his dedication to being with us throughout the day and his continued efforts to engage with all of our guests."

Mr & Mrs Barnes

"He really made me at ease I am not one for having my photos taken but Ashley really made me feel comfortable and made the experience great. He got the whole guests involved and came up with some great idea and suggestions. Would recommend to anyone and would sing he praise. He really went the extra mile."

Mr & Mrs Antill

"Ashley was fantastic from start to finish. He arrived early in the day just so he could capture every second of our special day and made us all feel so comfortable throughout. He also hung around beyond his finishing time just so he could capture the perfect sunset photo for us! Great photographer and would highly recommend!"

Mr & Mrs Suddes

"Ashley is one of the loveliest, most genuine and friendliest people you can meet. His quality of work is outstanding, his pictures are breathtaking! Me and my husband could not have picked a better photographer - he was amazing on the day, we felt very comfortable and happy getting our pictures taken with him, he was a very fun person to have around, which is a big deal on your wedding day and all our guests loved him!! Our wedding pictures are amazing, better than we could have ever imagined, words cannot describe how in love we are with our wedding album thanks to Ashley. I would definitely recommend Ashley and I highly doubt there is any photographer that meets his standard."

Mr & Mrs Triffitt

"From the moment we contacted Ashley he went out of his way to provide a top quality service and was genuinely interested in making our photography shoot what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt unique - not just another Wedding shoot. The service was great value for money including getting a disc with all the photos copyright free which is something I hadn't come accross anywhere else. I would recommed Ashley to anyone I knew getting married."

Mr & Mrs Naylor

"Ashley was my photographer at my renewal of vows ceremony. I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer and when I got married 11 years ago the photos were terrible so it was important to me that this time round I had some fantastic photos to cherish. Ashley visited me a few times before the wedding and from our first meeting I knew he was the right person we hit it off instantly.  On the day I was very poorly having had chemotherapy, Ashley was very caring and took everything at my pace, always putting me first but making sure we got the photos I wanted. He could see when I got tired so let me rest and got me glasses of water. He is a very caring and loveable person who shows great passion for his photography. I really couldn't ask for more on my big day. I would now consider Ashley as a friend and plan to keep in contact. I can't recommend this man highly enough."

Mr & Mrs Shipley

"Very professional from our first meeting to our special day. Made us both feel very relaxed with his friendly and bubbly character, which made us happy to know he had everything under control. The communication was first class , with emails and phone calls as required, ensuring ideas, both we had and suggestions from Ashley about our day , meant we had everything we wanted from our perfect wedding day. Our guests also commented how professional , confident and funny ( yes photographers are a little funny!!!) Ashley was on the day and even managed to keep the small children smiling in the photo's which is hard enough at the best of times."

Mr & Mrs Ogunjobi

"Excellent service and very professional. Ashley Nesbitt photography made our wedding day even more special and we found it easy and fun having our photos taken. At no point did it feel like a chore having to pose for pictures and when we received the album we were blown away with the special moments captured and the high quality of them! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ashley Nesbitt photography to any couple wanting a high standard of service with amazing memories captured forever. Very reasonable price for what you get and just knowing that you are without doubt going to get the wedding pictures you always dreamed of makes your special day stress free."

Mr & Mrs Waterhouse

" We knew we wanted Ashley to cover our wedding photography within 5 minutes of meeting him. He has such an enthusiastic and engaging personality which is infectious. This is such an important quality when covering a wedding and getting the best photo opportunities from people you've never met before. The quality of Ashley's work is outstanding and the way he captured the essence of our wedding day was inspirational, everyone's happiness and emotions were captured in such fine detail. We can relive each moment again when looking through our album as the joy is so vivid. Ashley spent time before the wedding discussing in detail what we wanted on the day and met up with us beforehand at the wedding location to source potential shots with us. He was constantly on hand to answer any questions we had and tailored his work to meet our expectations. The time he spent with us on the day exceeded what we had agreed and paid for, all to his own cost and dedication to our service. All of our guests commented on what a lovely gentleman he is and how surprised they were he took individual shots of them too, which was a thoughtful touch. Ashley has the ability to make you feel like a star and in the quality of his photography, he makes you look like one too! "

Mr & Mrs Ross

"We got married in a York but I live in Glasgow and my husband works in Moscow. The wedding was not easy to organise due to these factors, however Ashley made the photography planning so very easy and kept us in the loop with all of his ideas etc. the aftercare was brilliant and Ashley has maintained contact to make sure we get the product we wanted and in good time. I am not a 'girly' girl and being in a dress is not my idea of fun, but Ashley put me at ease and got some great shots - fantastic service from a great photographer and genuinely lovely person."

Mr & Mrs Harrison

"Ash helped to make our day fantastic! It was as if he was part of our wedding party. He had a great rapport with all of our guests and many have commented on him since the wedding. From prior to the wedding to after the event ash was a true professional, not to mention the quality of his photos. He captured every aspect of the day."

Mr & Mrs Bullock

"Brilliant photographer. Put us at our ease from the word go. Ash met us at the church and the reception venue in the run up to the wedding to discuss shots-we wanted a mixture of reportage and some posed shots and that is precisely what he delivered. He was not at all intrusive on the day of the wedding; more like another guest on the day. When he did need us for posed shots, they were done with the minimum of fuss. We had hundreds of photos to choose from for our album and once we had eventually made our decision, the proofs were edited to our satisfaction very promptly and the final album was ready within a few weeks. When we bump into Ash it's like meeting an old friend. I can't praise or recommend him highly enough!"

Mr & Mrs Cole

"Ashley has a great personality and made the process of taking our wedding photos easy, fun and relaxed. The quality of the pictures were fantastic. He listened to exactly what we wanted in the photos as well as suggesting great ideas. He was able to get our large wedding party organised for photos and made everyone laugh and enjoy the experience. I would recommend him to anyone. Fantastic service!"

Mr & Mrs Wrigglesworth

"Ashley's commitment to our wedding was outstanding, before the event he was friendly and full of ideas. Throughout the day he was more one of the guests than a Photographer, this made all the guests feel more relaxed and has produced some wonderful photos. After the event he as endeavored to create a fantastic album for us, after multiple changes and alterations he has always given 100% to ensure we have the album we want. We are currently awaiting the album to be printed and we hope this will match the high standard of professionalism we have observed so far from Ashley Nesbitt Photography"

Mr & Mrs Tidmarsh

"His fun, personable and professional approach took all the stress out of our day and he captured the emotion of our day perfectly. Our guests also mentioned what a fantastic photographer Ashley was. You can tell he has an honest passion for his work which is of the highest quality and should be recognized with this award. We were so lucky to have Ashley capture our wedding day."

Mr & Mrs Harrison

"Ashley does the most fantastic wedding photography. Not only is he easy to get along with, is tirelessly enthusiastic but he goes above and beyond any brief and excels in all areas. We are still getting compliments on the quality of our official photos and struggled to narrow down the ones we wanted framed as they were all so good. Choosing him was one of the best decisions we made overall."

Mr & Mrs Kelly

"Ashley was fantastic from the start. I had a bad experience with a previous photographer and lost a lot of money because of it. All my confidence with booking a photographer was next to none... until i found and spoke to Ash. He was so lovely and could not have done anymore for me and my new husband. Not only did he regain my confidence from rock bottom to having no doubts at all, he really made our day extra special by organising the guests in a brilliant way which kept our guests entertained through what most people call "the boring" part of the day... photographs!!! Ash was BRILLIANT with the kiddies, especially our son, who wasn't very well on the day at all. Yet Ash still managed to get fantastic images of my boys beautiful smile for our amazing album which he created. I cannot fault Ashley at all. All our guests had nothing but really nice comments about him saying, and i quote, "your photographer was amazing with the kids" "Your photographer was so funny!" "Your photographer was fab and had us in stitches" He really took the time to chat to our family and friends as well as capturing beautiful true memories that will last us a lifetime. I will be shocked if Ashley Nesbitt Photography does not win this. I don't normally do these testimonials but how could i not do this one... This was easy! Good Luck Ash - You Deserve to win the award"

Mr & Mrs Burgoyne

"From meeting Ashley over 3 years ago at my sister's wedding we knew that we would want him to photograph our wedding when it came to our turn. Not only does Ashley offer excellent value for money (which was important to us as we had a budget to stick to) he made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. We were completely confident in him and knew we could rely on him 100%. Ashley kept us all in good spirits on the day and helped everyone to feel at ease at what can be a nerve wracking time. We are absolutely thrilled with our photos, Ashley managed to capture some fantastic moments from our special day and we are so pleased that we have so many amazing pictures to help us remember our wedding day. Thank you! x"

Mr & Mrs Fawcett

"Ash was really committed to ensuring we received the best wedding album to remember our very special day. He noted everything we asked for before the wedding and on the day itself he mixed well with the guests and really captured the essence of the our celebration with excellent photography. He then worked with us to ensure we achieved the end product just as we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble. He really did go the extra mile and we are extremely happy with the result. It brings back so many happy memories and we will treasure the album forever. Many thanks Ash"

Will & Carol Fawcett

Mr & Mrs Shipley

"Ashley's work, commitment and professionalism is outstanding. From the first meeting discussion to the end result which is on going. He's creative and never does the same pictures more than once. He's friendly and makes everyone feel at ease. He's great fun to be around, and we was never worried about the end result. Absolutely outstanding and highly recommend his work to friends, family and colleagues."
