Practice Makes Perfect Ashley Gustafson - Photographer and Studio Manager


Visual Appeal Studios is comprised of a shared partnership between two photographers: Tim Eng and Ashley Gustafson. Both have previously ran independent photography businesses, but have together have been able to deliver an experience like no other.

Top-notch Customer Service: Visual Appeal Studios ensures a worry-free experience from the consultation to the actual shooting day. We've even got you covered with our online ordering process and free album hosting for one year. Lost or damaged discs are no problem as all files are kept safely archived.

Exceptional Value: You re purchasing an investment, not an off the shelf product, so why should it be treated like one? We've moved away from traditional packages in lieu of custom packaging. You won't be paying for coverage and products that don't meet your needs.

Experienced Tag Team Duo: Both Ashley and Tim have over 5 years in photographic experience while Ashley has a fine arts background. The combination of both their unique styles has proven successful in every shoot.

Our Shooting Style: Most of our work is a hybrid blend of photo-journalistic, candid, and traditional, with the ability to cater to your preference. We blend natural light, flash, and studio lighting into our workflow to make for pleasant results.

Getting it right Boot Shootin' Boogie

We Shoot Everything: in our downtime we shoot families, sweet 16's, proms, models and everyday people, boudoir, intimate, sports, automotive, and landscapes. Remaining versatile keeps us in shape.

We Prepare: you spend months, even years planning your wedding. We visit every venue ahead of time and acquaint ourselves with the management to prevent surprises. We take the time to plot out the ceremony, the formals and reception to make sure your unique pictures are taken quickly and efficiently. You can rest easily.

Lists! Tim Takes to the bushes
We're People people: We understand how stressful a wedding can be so we do our best to make it easier. We're mindful of your guests and try to keep obstructing their view. Need help tying a tie, putting on a Boutonniere? We can help!

Taking Pinning to a new level

We come to you: no need to have to round the kids into the car for a boring car ride, we bring the photo shoot to you. We can shoot at the park, The beach or anywhere you please. With portable studio backdrops and lighting, we can also transform your garage or spare room into an instant studio!

Available makeup and hair specialists upon request: we network with many other providers so we can recommend one that'll fit your needs.
