Tim and Ashley are both so sweet and they truly care about the vision you have for remembering your wedding through photos. Before the wedding, they took time out of their own schedule to arrange a meeting with the venue to check out lighting and get the feel for the place. Their setup for the group photos was spot-on. They knew exactly the kind of fun, casual thoughts we had and brought those ideas to life. Throughout the entire evening, they managed to get the most wonderful candid shots of my husband and me as well as our family members and to be honest; I didn’t even notice that they were there. Tim and Ashley were so professional and gracious with our family that we were asked to pass on numerous compliments to them. Their creative ideas and great sense of timing produced true-to-life, artful, and sentimental photographs that we absolutely adore. After the wedding, we got our pictures back quickly and they created a beautiful and unique coffee table book for us. Ashley and Tim are our photographers for every life event from now on. They simply are the best.

My family and I had our first photo session with Ashley and Tim at Wickham Park in Manchester/East Hartford, CT… WE LOVED IT! We felt so comfortable and could just be ourselves. The photos are AMAZING and we can’t wait to print them out, put them up on our walls, give them out to family and friends, and maybe even create our Christmas cards early!!!! Our 3 year old son was not totally cooperative during our photo session but Tim and Ashley still were able to get some AWESOME shots of him!! Our almost 2 year old puppy came with us and the pictures of him came out GREAT too!!! THANK YOU ASHLEY AND TIM!!!

My fiancée and I had Visual Appeal Studios take our engagement photos. They were such a pleasure to deal with. My fiancée had told them several locations where she wanted our pictures taken. Ashley and Tim met us at the first location and to my surprise they had gotten there early to scope out the location and had exact ideas that would make a great picture for us. They were aware that we aren’t models and my apprehension on having our photo taken over and over and made us feel very comfortable during the entire process, it was about US being ourselves and having fun! We will be going back to them to take our wedding photos and family photos in the future!

Tim and Ashley were just the perfect duo and perfect fit for our wedding day!!! Chris and I were very happy with our decision! I met Tim in 2009 at a camp that we both volunteer for(he was the photographer). Shortly after that camp the pictures were posted and I fell in love with his style and how he captured emotion. At that moment I knew he had to be my photog. Tim did a boudoir shoot of me as a wedding gift to my husband and he and Ashley did an amazing job editing and creating that album for me. I did not actually meet Ashley until the big day and I immediately felt as though I had known her for years. She jumped right in and began snapping both formal and candid heartfelt moments between Chris and I and our loved ones. I can not begin to thank them enough for capturing our special day so that we can look back at our wedding day over and over again!!! xoxo

Tim and Ashley were AMAZING!!!!!!!!! My husband and I used them as the photographers for our engagment session, boudoir shoot, and wedding day, and we couldn’t have found two people that made us feel more comfortable in front of the camera. They always had a cool new idea for a shot that turned out beautifully. Guests are still commenting on how wonderful our photos are! More importantly, they were open to our suggestions and requests. By working with you to create a list of “must have shots”, you can rest assure that they won’t miss a thing! We had so much fun with them and couldn’t recommend a better photography studio! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Tim and Ashley, for providing us with GORGEOUS lifetime memories!!!!!

I honestly don’t know where to start with Tim and Ashley, they were amazing from start to finish. After we left our initial meeting with them we were pretty much certain they’d be our wedding photographers. But, being me, I wanted to look at pricing for people in Maryland where we got married.
Well never mind the fact that we loved Tim & Ashley, they blew the “local” Maryland competition out of the water on price.
They did our engagement photos throughout Hoboken and NYC and they were patient, kind and just redefined professional. It was a long tiring day and they were the ones lugging around all the gear and they never showed signs of being tired they were up beat and positive despite us being pretty tired. The engagement photos were AMAZING and it was there first time ever shooting in our town, never would have guessed. The photos are in constant rotation as my facebook profile pic.
The wedding day. Honestly, I don’t think I have enough room to write how amazing they were. They were professional, not in your face and not demanding of us and the bridal party, which I’ve seen from other photographers at other weddings. You really hardly noticed they were there, but they were all over the place. The wedding photos could not have turned out better. Seriously. They were beautifully composed and you can tell that Tim and Ashley have such a passion for making our special day continually special forever thru photographs.
They were always prompt in responding and communicating. I would give 6 stars if I could. Right now you’re reading thru reviews, on the fence on who to use, like I was. But, let me help you in this decision, use Visual Appeal Studios at no point will you be disappointed!!

I don’t even know where to begin. To capture the memories in such a way that Tim and Ashley achieved, it was truly an honor the have them photograph our wedding. They were with us for the entire week since it was a destination wedding to Disney. Since the moment they arrived they assured us in every aspect. Both went way out of their way to make sure our special moment was truly amazing. The dedication they showed to every aspect form the engagement shoot, to the ceremony, and the reception was unbelievable. The service that Ashley and Time provided is top notch. They not only helped with photography but also helped with everything else. From little things as showing me the proper way to attach my boutonniere, to extensive things like keeping everyone having a great time at the reception all while capturing every moment on film to remember forever. We had approximately 100 guest and everyone individually during the week and after could not stop raving about Ashley and Tim and how helpful and creative they were. Once we saw the photos and whenever we look back at them our jaws still drop in amazement of everything they were able to capture. “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
