Hi, I'm Ashley!
I am a portrait and wedding photographer for those individuals, couples, and families wanting to capture a moment in time that they can treasure forever. I started loving photography at a young age when I'd use my mom's "fancy" camera to take photos of loved ones. I started using my own "fancy" camera in November 2018. When I'm not behind a camera I'm teaching my students as a high school health and physical educator. In my free time I love spending time with my family and friends at a sporting event, brewery, or hiking in Shenandoah National Park.
I grew up in Northern Fauquier County, Virginia. While I'm only a 45 minute drive to Washington, D.C. (without traffic) where I grew up was far from it. I'm a lover of many things in life but items at the top of the list include Jesus, peanut butter, golden retrievers, hiking, HGTV, and coke slurpees.

"Where can I even begin? Ashley is wonderful and extremely talented at what she does, but she herself is full of love and happiness. During our session she made everything feel so fun and natural. She captures beautiful pictures and makes you feel beautiful. I can't recommend her enough for the service and experience she provides."

"I tagged along to my sister's engagement shoot and it was perfect. My sister and her fiance had no idea what to expect, but Ashley made them (and me) feel comfortable and made the entire process natural. She told them how to pose, showed them different picture ideas, and allowed them to try their own ideas as well. My sister was expecting to see the photos within two weeks but was ecstatic when they arrived the next day! The pictures turned out better than they could've hoped for. We loved them all!"

Hiring Ashley for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made for our August 2023 wedding! Ashley is not only a true professional but also so kind and thoughtful, and made everyone feel so at ease. We are thrilled with our photos - she really captured the spirit of the day, and we will cherish them forever. Not only do we have amazing portraits, but also so many beautiful candids and detail shots. We would absolutely work with Ashley again and highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!

Ashley is an absolute gem to work with! Our engagement shoot was natural, comfortable, fun, and the pictures are simply beautiful. We can't wait to work with her again on our wedding day! Her style is timeless and classic, which is exactly how we want our wedding photos to be. She has a wonderful superpower of making anyone feel calm in front of the camera. Thanks Ashley!
