from here you'll choose the wedding package that best fits your needs, or i'll be happy to customize one just for you!

One: Initial Meeting

I will be with you every step of the way! After booking you will receive a welcome gift that will help you plan and prepare for your wedding, engagement, and even boudoir sessions, if you choose to have one. my goal is for you to feel confident in knowing you are not alone in this time of planning. If at any time you need anything i am just a phone call or email away!

Two: Ready to book

The fun begins! after working together to choose the perfect locations, we will spend an hour together to shoot your engagement photos! Your only job during our session is to love each other - i will coach you through posing for the entire shoot! This is a time for us to get to know one another before your big day, get comfortable working together and allow you to spend time together in front of the camera with no stress!

three: engagement session

As your wedding day approaches, i will be available to help with anything and everything you need - vendor recommendations, timeline preparations, planning suggestions, organizing day-of picture requests, and more!

When we are just a few weeks out, we will plan a phone call to finalize details. that way you can wake up on your wedding day entirely stress free and ready to marry the man of your dreams!

Four: prepping for your day

It's here! the day all of your hard work, stress and probably tears at some point pay off! You get to marry the spouse of your dreams! I will be there every step of the way to capture all of the timeless memories to be made on this big day!

 Relax and enjoy your day!

Five: Wedding Day!

You can expect to receive your online gallery within 90 days following your wedding day. You will be able to download, share, and print all of your high-res digital files.

have more questions?

"Ashley is incredible and she did such an amazing job capturing every moment of our wedding! Four months later, and I am still looking at the pics as much as I can. She made sure everyone was where they needed to be (and keeping up with Marines can be a hard job!) Even during our engagement shoot, Ashley got into the pond to make sure the boat picture was perfect. We look forward to having Ashley capture more memories for us!"
