I'm so happy you're here!

Hello Sunshine!

ABOUT ashley

getting creative with photos since the early 2000's when i got my first polaroid camera.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by my little corner of the internet. Photography is such a HUGE part of my heart!  

I’ve photographed over 100 weddings and each one still gets me just as excited as my first. I feel the same way the night before weddings as a kid does the night before Christmas: I can’t sleep because I’m so excited! I just love it!  

here’s the thing,
you need to know

I’ve been told that while I’m a positive and energetic energy around the wedding day, I also bring a sense of calm. I make my couples excited but also help them feel relaxed and comfortable!

Even though photography is such a huge part of my life, there’s still more to me. My best days include being in the sunshine, laughing with my loved ones, and snuggling with my pups. I also wouldn’t be mad if we were doing all this while being at my favorite Mexican restaurant sharing chips and queso while sipping on a margarita!

Let’s be friends! If you think we’d be a good fit, head over to my contact page and send me a message!

I spent a lot of my life feeling insecure and unsure. When I found photography, I finally felt like me. I wasn’t unsure behind a camera. I felt confident. I felt happy. I felt like I finally knew what I was supposed to do.  

When I shot my first wedding at 18 years old, it was such a new experience for me. I wasn’t shy behind the camera. I fed off the buzz of wedding celebration  in the air. I loved being around couples in love, joyful families, and excited friends! After that, I found myself craving to be around that environment more.  

love love! I love celebrating couples in love and I love LOVING on them! Being a photographer has allowed me to love on my clients and encourage them during these special moments in their lives. Giving them the ability to relive these moments again through photography is such an honor that I don’t take lightly. I’m so thankful for this opportunity and can’t imagine life without it.
