First things first, the feeling of photographing a marital ceremony again is just indescribable. I LOVE capturing weddings and engagements and elopements – I am at complete peace behind the camera in any capacity but photographing sessions fully surrounding love, on what is very likely two people’s most fulfilling and exciting day of their lives.

I had the absolute honor of having Aysleigh in the studio for her newborn session and couldn’t wait to share this session on the blog! Aysleigh’s mom Casey and I met through our parents growing up so I have quite literally known her for what feels like (and is very close to) forever! I have […]

When Ashley Dorton Photography was brand new, I genuinely wanted to savor every opportunity I was given to be behind the camera. Whether it was families, babies or weddings, I wanted to do it all.

The day I brought my sweet Reagan earthside, I knew instantly that my world was completely changed for the better. There is NOTHING like the feeling of meeting your baby for the first time and you are very literally never the same after, in almost every way. So much about being a mom is challenging […]

Fairview Farm Events is easily one of my absolute favorite venues I have shot at. Not only is it a breathtaking setting through every inch of the 225 acre property but the details and the style at Fairview is like no other. With it’s beautiful statement barn and stamped concrete details, the rustic vibes are […]

I am truly proud of the skills I possess behind the camera and the work that I produce. I hope this doesn’t come across as honery or prideful, because I can […]
