While it might seem like we are currently strangers, we have so much in common.
While at the same time hoping you leave some sort of mark on the world, whether it is big or small. It's why I find so much creativity, inspiration, and love in being a wedding photographer.
I strive to bring you an experience that feels as easy as it does elegant and as relaxed as it is romantic. Combining my many years in the industry and my past time of coordinating traveling, I offer support and advice throughout the process and bring an extra layer of expertise you won't get anywhere else.
From the day your engagement ring goes on, you start envisioning what your wedding day will look like! While your wedding day is going to be the main focus: the people, the events of the day your partner. You pour hours sometimes days in to ALL the details. Whether it's your invitation suite, Jimmy Choos, Maggie Sottero lace gown, signature cocktail signs, customized cigars or all the fun add-ons for guests I appreciate each and every single item you choose.

No matter what your ceremony looks like, just after you say "I Do" there is an elevated feeling of happiness that spreads from the front row to the back. You're happy to finally be married, but your friends and family are just as excited to celebrate with you! My top favorite photo is to grab you coming down the aisle either celebrating or grabbing an extra kiss!
Through the planning process we will build a timeline that ensures the important and typical wedding stuff gets captured: getting ready, first look with dad or your soon to be spouse, the ceremony, reception, wedding party photos and couple photos. But what really takes your day to the next level and ALWAYS ends up being my favorite part of a wedding day are the unplanned sentimental, emotional, or joyful moments we can't plan. In this case one of my favorite images to date is this grandpa getting so emotional seeing his Granddaughter.
There isn't anything more fun than a dance floor filled with all the people you love. For me it's like being on the general admission floor of a great concert. 99% of the time I will be jamming along with you, grabbing shots of you and your best friends jumping up and down singing Taylor Swift or Whitney Houston at the top of your lungs. Adding in some fun glow sticks, foam glow tubes, or confetti just adds to the fun. I always recommend my couples be the ones to open the dance floor and have their top two favorite songs played right away to get the party started!
I desire to bring your love of high-end details, real life moments big or small, and memories celebrating with your loved ones, together into a beautiful story told through images. I believe with trust, honesty and the clarity of a well-constructed timeline, it allows us to capture all the important events of the day, and also ensures time is given to capture the ones that happen naturally and in-between. Your wedding day isn't just about the formal moving pieces, but about the whole picture. From the location and venue selection to the type of votive candle holders chosen for cocktail hour, your day encompasses a wide range of emotions, details and more that should be captured in a way that tells your own individual wedding day story, because no two wedding days are ever the same.
"I have never felt so comfortable with someone so quickly, and having her there was like having one of my closest friends. Her passion for her job is inspiring and I cannot wait to continue to have her capture important moments for our new family!"
"Ashley has captured major moments in my family's life: our first born, holidays, baby milestones, and now our wedding... She has the skill of capturing a family's quirks, happiness, and authentication. She values you and incorporates your specific personality and shows it in her photos. She provides the highest amount of dedication to ensure you have the best photos. She shows this same dedication even when she faces obstacles and always puts client needs first. I could go on for days, but seriously just book her. You won't be disappointed. We love you Ash! ❤
I'm the lady of many hats and a few of them include these amazing people I get to celebrate my life with every single day.
