Our finished painting from Ashley truly looks like it could have been a photo taken with a camera!
The detail is incredible, even down to the candles and the sunset, and our faces. My husband and I are both totally blown away by Ashley’s attention to detail in capturing our first dance.
Seeing this moment from her point of view, and beautifully painted by her talented hands is truly so very special. You have such a beautiful talent Ashley! We are absolutely floored with the final painting!
Ashley was so personable, and so easy to get to know. She really felt like someone I had known all my life with how invested she was in helping to celebrate our special day! We also loved that Ashley took a well deserved break and boogied with us on the dance floor! Our guests loved getting to chat with her throughout the evening and watching as the painting of our first dance came to life.
Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day! We still have guests commenting on how much fun it was chatting with you and getting to watch you at work.
We look forward to displaying this beautiful piece in our home. Thank you again for adding to the memory!"

"Ashley was amazing !!! She's extremely professional and talented. The painting looks so realistic as if it’s a photo. This painting wasn’t only special because it was our wedding day. It’s special because it allowed us to have the most important people in our lives all in the painting together. I highly recommend booking her."

"Ashley, seriously, THANK YOU. You captured a very special moment for us, and we're just so grateful that you could do this. I didn't even think something like this was possible, and I don't know how people could go without having this because it is so special, so unique, and genuinely captures the most special moment for us. I am still shocked that you drew all of this in such a short time... It just looks so good, it's so realistic and we love it. This was the best decision I ever made with this wedding. Thank you so much, we love you thank you!!!"

"Where do I start?! Ashley was amazing and professional from start to finish. She not only painted the most incredible photo from our wedding night but is also just an awesome human being (trust me, the quality of the product matters as much as the person/company who you are booking .. I learned this the hard way). Out of the 20+ vendors I had assist with our wedding, Ashley was hands down my favorite vendor. Our wedding guests loved her and were also in awe of her skills. I strongly recommend that if you are considering a live wedding painter for your wedding that you book Ashley. I cannot say it enough… she’s AMAZING!!"

"Ashley Hayunga's work is truly wonderful. She painted a portrait of my sons as a gift to me and their father. She captured their look and spirit perfectly, and her use of line, texture and color is precise and true to life. Ashley’s work is so beautiful, I can’t help but smile when I see it."

"Ashley was such a blessing to work with. Hiring a live wedding painter was a bit of a splurge for us but between the two of us we only have 1 living grandparent and I really wanted to have something with all our deceased loved ones in it!
Not only was Ashley’s communication leading up to the event great, she was kind, understanding and executed my vision perfectly! She even painted our cats into the painting and portrayed their little personalities perfectly!"

"Oh my gosh! I LOVE my painting! I am so glad we had you at our wedding! Everyone loves getting great wedding photos but not many people get a beautiful painting of their special day. The colors you used really make my dress, hair, and flowers pop. I feel like I’m looking at this exact scene of my wedding, just like a photo but with more life! I will absolutely be in touch to have you paint portraits of other special days in our lives."
- Sydney and Shane G.
"I just received my one of a kind oil painting of my daughter painted by Ashley Hayunga! It is amazing! She captured my daughter and her love of sea turtles and the ocean perfectly! I can't wait to have her do more work for me in the future!!"

"I want to let you know that my husband and I love our painting! The detail that you put into our family and friends in the background is really impressive! And OUR DOGGIES!!! We love that everyone we know can tell exactly who they are when they see our painting in our home. I have some friends planning their weddings and I will definitely let them know about your work!"

"I commissioned Ashley to do a pet memorial portrait for a dear friend of mine. Ashley did an exceptional job with Mickey's portrait. The detail was wonderful and my friend absolutely loved it. They cried when they saw it and were totally surprised and amazed to have something like this painting of their dog. She was easy to work with and is very talented at what she does in all forms of art. Highly recommend!"

"All I can say is that the painting that Ashley made for us at our wedding is so gorgeous and we love it! She was so professional and listened to all of the ideas that we had to get the painting the way that we wanted it to look. Having her paint during our wedding was so fun for us, and a lot of my friends said that watching her work was the best part of the day for them. I am so glad that we found her to paint for us and the painting that we received after is so beautiful, THANK YOU AGAIN!!"

"Ashley's painting brought tears to our eyes. It was so realistic and she beautifully portrayed my late mother in law. I ordered this painting as a surprise wedding gift for my sister in law after I heard about Ashley's art from a friend. My mother in law passed away before she could meet her grandkids, but Ashley used photos that I had and put them all together into one painting. This is exactly what I was hoping for, I am amazed that she could do this! Ashley is so extremely talented and we were over the moon ecstatic about how the painting came out. Recommend 1000% !!

"Ashley delivered the most beautiful painting. It surpassed all expectations, and she captured the most beautiful moment. It was the first kiss as husband and wife. Ashley you are an amazing artist, we are so happy to have found you. You are very polite and professional, and you added an extra spice to our wedding that made the whole family jealous they didn't have you in theirs. Thank you for this beautiful gift and wish you all the best."

"I thought it would be difficult to get my sketch done since Ashley and I were in 2 different states. But she made it so easy. I sent her so many pictures to choose from and I kept changing my mind about which one I wanted sketched. She was so patient and helped me pick just the right one. She totally understood the meaning behind this sketch.
The family it was made for love the outdoors, especially hiking. They helped my friend and I achieve our hiking goals. Hiking with their daughters (ages 8, 5, and 3) made it a lot of fun. This was our thank you to them and they absolutely loved it."
