★★★★★ "I cannot say enough about the Happy Film Company! Right from the beginning they were very responsive to answer any questions and to accommodate our needs. They were very easy to work with and created a very positive and warm environment for me and my family (husband and newborn). The quality of her photos are amazing! And I am very impressed with her attention to detail. All the photos were beautifully edited. I truly feel she went above and beyond to make sure we were pleased with our experience and to create a beautiful selection of photos to choose from. I would recommend the Happy Film Company in a heartbeat! High quality work with a sense of integrity." — Coleman Family

"the Happy Film Company are GREAT!! From the first time I contacted The Happy Film Company (THFC), they were very friendly, happy, professional and quickly responded to all emails and any questions we've ever had! We had such a wonderful time out on the beach I partly forgot we were taking pictures, it was so fun and relaxed! We never felt awkward just standing around in the same pose not knowing what to do next. The photographs we received all turned out AMAZING! Our smiles are all so genuine and happy looking because we were having such a great time! We will be back most definitely for our family's future photo needs! THANK YOU THFC!" — Hansen Family

Just had to add on that Chris was in tears when he watched the video. He loves how it turned out. It truly is the most important document we have of our family.

★★★★★ "We just finished up our family photo session with Ashley and it was awesome. I am usually very leery to pay a lot for photographs because I am very particular. I don't like the cheesy sit and pose, no character type of photos like you get at some studios. That being said, I bought a Groupon for this company and figured I would try it out without investing a large amount of money, just in case. Honestly, I would, and will, go back every time I want pictures taken and pay the full amount without a Groupon. Ashley was absolutely fantastic and was so great with the kids (5 month old and 3 year old). She was so creative and very thorough with making sure we got a bunch of combinations. (Me with each kid, dad with each kid, the kids together, the whole family, etc.) The photos were taken in a very natural way which I love. They have a bunch of different options for location and we chose "exploring the countryside." it was a great location with a lot of options for different photos. Long story short, it was absolutely worth the cost of the Groupon and more. Even their regular prices are very reasonable and worth every penny. I can't wait until spring and we can do another set of photos. To all the skeptics, give it a try. You won't be disappointed." — Fusco Family

★★★★★ "Ashley is a phenomenal photographer!! I had the pleasure to do two shoots with her. The first was a sibling shoot of myself with my two younger sisters. The second was a couple's shoot, celebrating the completionof my Master's degree. For both shoots, Ashley made us feel so comfortable. She has a great energy and she's the sweetest person ever. She also provided great directions so that we never felt awkward or "posey" for any of the pictures. I feel great knowing that I can turn to Ashley and the Happy Film Co whenever I want to capture a chapter of my life on camera :)" – Arndt Family

★★★★★ "In the past month, we had done 2 photo shoots with Chamonix. We absolutely loved the results of both photoshoots and mini video. My little guy is super hyper and cannot stay still - Chamonix incredibly was stil l able to capture amazing pictures of him being his happy self. To top it off, the photo shoots were incredibly fun and looking at the photos and the video always makes me smile. What an incredible company! Highly recommended!!!"  — Taha Family
