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!
Ashley is a wonderful makeup artist and consummate professional. She is also a very lovely person to spend time with. I asked for a natural “no makeup” look for a family photo shoot. I looked like me, but better. Every step of the process was super organized and clear from setting up the contract to convening on the day. I am so looking forward to working with Ashley again soon.
Ashley was such a pleasure to work with! She was very quick to respond to all of my emails and assisted me with putting a beauty schedule together for my client’s wedding day. On the day of their wedding, she was on time and the bride was thrilled with her beauty treatment. It really lasted throughout the event as well, which is so important. I highly recommend Ashley and her team!
Ashley was a pleasure to work with prior to my engagement photo shoot. We decided we would treat the day as a wedding day trial as well. Great idea on her part! Before she lifted a makeup brush, we spent 10-15 minutes discussing her approach, the style I was going for, color options and details, etc. We went through several photos just to be sure she would execute what I was envisioning. Her attention to detail was perfect. We stopped a few times from start to finish, just to be sure I liked the direction she was going in. How thoughtful. I highly recommend Ashley Fierro Makeup for any future brides to be! I know I’ll be using her on my wedding day next year!
If you are looking for the perfect make up artist – look no further! Ashley is truly incredible. She did my make up for my wedding, and I couldn’t have been happier. I think all brides worry they won’t look or feel like themselves on their big day. Ashley did such an incredible job of making me feel like me, while having enough coverage to last the day and look great in photos. I loved the time we spent together – she is incredibly easy to talk to and totally helped to calm my nerves on the big day! I would recommend her highly!
Ashley was absolutely amazing before, during, and after the wedding!! I went through many makeup trials for my wedding and never felt myself after any of them until Ashley did my makeup. The one word I would use to describe Ashley is GENUINE and real! She is all about making you feel comfortable in your own skin and really listens to what you want…she never pushed to make me over how she wanted. The day of my wedding, she got through my whole wedding party with time to spare all while maintaining quality and class! She even did a few touch ups. I cannot thank her enough for making me feel so beautiful the day of my wedding!
Ashley! Where do I begin to thank you? I don’t think I can truly describe how amazing you are. You totally understood my vision for how I wanted to look for my wedding and you exceeded all of my expectations. What could have been a stressful and chaotic day, was so peaceful, relaxing and fun! My bridesmaids were so happy with the way they looked-and everyone had a great time with you! Thank you for everything-you are SO talented and wonderful! XOXO
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!
7/18/16 TRIAL: You are so adorable, talented and fun to be around!! You will make Jess’ wedding day so easy-breezy and special. LOVE that!! xo 8/9/16 WEDDING: You are AMAZING!! Jessica was the most beautiful bride and I had so many compliments about my makeup!! Still haven’t washed my eyes so I can keep on my little false eyelashes… obsessed! 🙂 THANK YOU!!!
I have known Ashley for years and have watched her transform bride after bride into the most beautiful version of themselves. So when I finally got engaged, I knew one of my first calls would be to Ashley Fierro to book my engagement session and Wedding Day….and OMG…I have never looked better. I seriously wish I could have her do my make up everyday and my husband agreed!
Her professionalism throughout the whole process was top notch. I loved the email check in’s with videos on what to expect at my make-up trial and on the big day. It really helped me feel prepared and knew I had one less thing to worry about. She also has a very calming spirit about her that was a breath of fresh air on my wedding day. The hour I spent with her getting ready was the much needed stress reliever right before I got into my dress.
At my make up trial, she was very detailed on uncovering exactly the look I was going for. I had a hard time articulating it, but after a great discussion, she was able to pull off the exact look I wanted. A bride should feel her best on her wedding day, and thanks to Ashley, I did.
