SOCIALIZE

IT'S MORE LIKE A PARTY THAN A PHOTOSHOOT, REALLY.

A piece of (wedding) cake. You've got enough on your plate(like choosing china patterns for said plates). the last thing you need is to stress about your photographer remembering her memory cards-or your names. The good news is: This isn't my first rodeo. In fact, I've shot over 200 weddings since 2013, so I'm something of a modern-day Annie Oakley. 

Take the guesswork out of photos. From what to wear (and where to shop) for your engagement shoot to my go-to wedding prep tips. I'll help you think of things that are easy to overlook without a seasoned pro by your side.

Discover your inner model. With the right photographer, you'll discover what a natural you are in front of the camera-and you may wish you could turn back time to America's Next Top Model auditions.

Get surprised. We're celebrating your love-and what's a celebration without a surprise or two? All I'll say is I'm a fan of old-school snail mail, and I guarantee you won't forget how ecstatic I am to shoot your wedding.

The trifecta of deserts
In 2018, my husband and I left our Palm Springs paradise for an adventure of the Las Vegas variety. It's from here I capture nuptials in the trifecta of deserts: Nevada, California, and Arizona. Wherever you hearts roam, I'll meet you there.

"BEST CHOICE WE MADE"

KARINA + MIKE

"We were planning a California wedding from Scotland. From the very beginning Ashley put us at ease and was extremely professional, organized, and personable.
On the day of our wedding, she jumped right in, making everyone feel comfortable.

It felt like Ashley was our old friend.
I really can't say enough amazing things about Ashley. She is the hardest working person and is so passionate about photography and people. If you are looking for an incredibly talented photographer and even better person, stop your search and snatch her up!"

carling + alanna

"From the moment we emailed Ashley, she was everything we could wish for and more. I seriously felt like I had one of my BFF's with me the whole day. 

In fact, the time we spent taking pictures with her was one of my favorite parts of the day! Her pictures completely capture the emotion and feeling of the day. Every detail, every emotion is there. 

Her work is beautiful, and she is extremely professional and prompt.

"i never felt
rushed"

bailey + adam

"Finding a photographer to hire was one of the most challenging things for me. It was the most important vendor I would hire. Even if my hair was amazing and my decorations were beautiful, it wouldn’t matter if the photographs didn’t capture that.

My entire wedding day I felt relaxed, I never felt rushed through pictures. Not only did she capture the most amazing images of my wedding day, but she is one of the most fun people to just hang out with. Because of Ashley, I get to relive my wedding everyday by looking at the pictures she took."

"We love everything about Ashley. From the way she made us feel welcome and heard to how she guided us through the entire process. She definitely made our wedding day more fun and relaxed which is what we wanted. 

She even went to the bar to grab us drinks and took it upon herself to grab our polaroid cameras to take photos of everyone at the wedding. Those polaroids became part of our wedding album!"

These are absolutely beautiful and beyond my expectations!

Our original photographer didn't work out. We were scrambling to find a photographer with our wedding only being weeks away. Thanks to my cousin, she recommended Ashley and I couldn't be happier. Best decision we made for our wedding.
