BEHIND THE CAMERA

Hello gorgeous bride-to-be and welcome!

I'm Ashley! I'm a wedding and engagement photographer based out of Northern Virginia. Although, an Arizona State University alumna through and through - go Sun Devils! I recently got married to the most handsome man, if I do say so myself. He's the one with the red beard.. because every day is beard season. He's my biggest supporter, best friend, and better half! One of my vows was to never shave his beard off while he's sleeping ;) and to wish him all the patience in the world, because he's gonna need it with me around! 

Together, we have a son named Archer who was born August 4, 2018 and is just the sweetest! We also have two dogs, who most importantly, are my not-so-little spoons at night! Generally, you can find all five of us hanging out at home working on our next #PinterestFail while listening to our favorite podcasts or audiobooks. Lately I'm obsessing over the Rise podcast, as well as the Rise Together podcast! If we're not doing that, you can guarantee it's because we're a little busy learning how to be new parents! Which by the way - is the most amazing and rewarding job ever!

Aside from working hard on the failing Pinterest front, listening to podcasts and audiobooks until my heart is content, and mom-ing it up, I spend my days working out at Orange Theory Fitness (any OTF go-ers in the house?!) and working my other job! I'm a full time compliance analyst for a large corporation, so that keeps me pretty busy Monday through Friday.

I can't wait to meet you over a Chai Tea Latte (because that's my fav drink!) to chat about your newest adventure! Being engaged is the best, and I can't wait to celebrate this milestone in life with you! 

xO!

SHOPPING.

I think I'm making up for lost time or something! I LOVE online shopping. Sometimes I will shop, and not even purchase all the things I've added to my virtual cart LOL!

DIY.

I have the misfortune of attempting all DIY projects on Pinterest. My husband has the same problem. So, together, we create some great #PinterestFails... but we have fun doing it... usually!

READING.

I love to read. Sometimes it's easier these days with a newborn to listen to audiobooks, but I LOVE learning all the things! I also LOVE podcasts! I really love business books and self-care type reads!

OTF.

I love working out at Orange Theory Fitness. It's super challenging, and I feel amazing afterwards. It has changed not only my body, but my attitude as well. It's also brought back an old love of running!

ASHLEY'S FAVORITE THINGS

I'm a HUGE believer in that can't eat, can't sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, world series kind of love. And, just like I'm a believer in a love so strong, I also believe in treating every wedding like it's the world series. I invest my heart and soul into my couples, and each and every sweet moment that I capture for them. And to be completely honest with you... the only reason I'm even using that baseball analogy is because I'm a huge fan of the Olsen twins movie, It Takes Two, and that's a quote straight out of a great scene! Taking it back to the 90's yo!

On a serious note though, getting to know my couples and building a strong relationship with them is important to me. I learn what makes their heart beat, so that I can capture truly beautiful images that exemplify exactly who they are and what they represent. That way when their family and friends look at their wedding day photos, they aren't focused on a pretty picture, but rather they are focused on the  fact that they can see how happy the couple was in that moment, and they can feel all of those loving emotions.




and kept forever.

I BELIEVE THAT BEAUTIFUL RAW 
MOMENTS SHOULD BE CAPTURED

I BELIEVE THAT BEAUTIFUL
MOMENTS SHOULD
BE CAPTURED,
TREASURED
