What a treat it was to work with Ashley on a beautiful boho styled shoot. She is a gem to work with! As a photographer, I often am left with a lot of post-processing work to make everyone look their best, but Ashley has got you covered right from the start. She’s creative and knows how to make people shine their brightest! I loves the bright palette she used for the shoot, and her bubbly energy. She’s easy to work with, versatile, and fun! I’d recommend her for sure.
Ashley Fierro made me look like the very best possible version of myself in my business photos. My only experience working with makeup artists before meeting Ashley was not great – I didn’t look like myself because they put on way too much brightly-colored makeup and it didn’t even look like me. So when scheduling a very important photo shoot, I contacted Ashley and loved how she just got me and what I was looking for even in just a phone call. On the day of the photo shoot I was nervous and stressed by the time I met up with Ashley. But the moment I sat down in her chair, I feel more relaxed. Ashley is easy, breezy, professional and really took away my stress. I felt like I was in great hands. The results were amazing. She really is an artist. Ashley made me look like a celebrity version of myself. I felt so pretty and confident – and that totally came through in the photos. They turned out fantastic and I felt really proud of them. I also loved the makeup that she used, so I bought some and use it everyday. It’s the best! I highly recommend Ashley!
Words can’t describe how talented Ashely is. I hired her for my wedding day and I was nervous because I don’t wear a lot of makeup. I described what I was envisioning and she brought it to life with ease and confidence. Not only does she work wonders, but her professionalism and personality make you feel comfortable. It’s important to look beautiful on your wedding day, and thanks to Ashley she accomplished this, and just to top it off she made it a fun and relaxing experience.
Ashley is AMAZING and was a pleasure to work with. Having her do makeup at my wedding was one of the first (and best!) decisions I made while wedding planning. Makeup was one thing I knew I didn’t want to worry about on the day of my wedding, and knew Ashley would make me look flawless. Ash is a true professional, and has a passion for her work. If you’re thinking about hiring her, DO IT, you won’t regret it. Highly recommended. – Carly
I feel so lucky to have found Ashley. After getting engaged, & with a lack of confidence in front of the camera, I knew I wanted to find someone who would truly make me look (and feel) amazing on my wedding day. First, Ashley did my makeup for our engagement photos…& immediately I knew I needed her for our wedding day! Not only is she an incredible makeup artist, who made me look like the most beautiful version of myself, but also her personality made me and my bridesmaids feel comfortable like we knew her for years. Her insights, professionalism, and expertise made me feel so at ease when getting ready on the big day. I was never nervous about how my makeup would turn out. Recently, we just received our wedding day pictures and video and I love the way I look in them all! I’m so appreciative to Ashley, and now that the wedding is over, I’m literally trying to envision another event or excuse for her to do my makeup because she is the best!
Ashley is the absolute best! She did my makeup for my wedding day and was fantastic to work with. I clicked with Ashley instantly- she is extremely kind, professional, and talented. Her use of professional photographs during the trial was very helpful in defining the natural look I wanted. She did makeup for six of us on my wedding day, and we all loved our looks! Beyond that, she made us all feel so comfortable and at ease with the process. I would definitely recommend hiring Ashley for your makeup!
Okay ladies, look no further. Ashley is your first and last choice when it comes to makeup! We had her come help us with an event and I wish I had her do our wedding. She made my wife look like a model on vanity fair. Reasonable, organized, responsive and friendly. Simply the best in the business. Make your reservations early ladies….
Truly a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job on me and my girls for my wedding. Ashley was very flexible working out times for trials for me as I was an out of town bride and was the consummate professional when dealing with some unexpected issues (from my end). The day of she even offered to call a florist friend when we had a last minute flower glitch and gave me her gluten-free snack bar when I was feeling a little nauseous and there was nothing gf handy. I have nothing but positive feedback and would absolutely recommend Ashley Fierro Makeup for anyone looking to have their makeup done and have a good time while having it done.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Ashley on a photo shoot. I am a hairdresser that has worked on fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings, and in the salon for 9 years. I have worked with many industry professionals, and Ashley gets 5 stars. She is on time, she is flexible to clients vision while offering expert advice, her color palette ranges from playful looks too elegant glamour, and her personality is a joy. I was impressed with her ability to take on even skintones to natural and glowing. Beautiful work Ashley looking forward to our next collaboration!
Ashley is the BEST! She is extremely accommodating and truly cares about your special day. Our wedding was last Sunday and Ashley knocked it out of the park! Myself and all of my wedding party were incredibly happy with their make-up. She is very talented and passionate about what she does and it shows! Ashley is professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Ashley Fierro Makeup! You will not be disappointed! Thank you again Ashley!
