I had the pleasure of meeting Emma at a wedding back in the summer.  So, of course, I was delighted when she reached out about our photography mentorship program!  If you’ve been following the blog for any length of time, then you know how strongly I feel about mentorships! Emma discovered her passion for photography […]

The goal of this balloon inspired styled wedding was to create a fresh feel on wedding decor and give brides some inspiration outside of floral decor. Charlotte’s top balloon designer came on board to bring our vision to life with a circular balloon arbor, which was accented with greenery and gold hoops. The balloon and […]

This woodsy maternity session melts my heart!  I’ve been doing portraits for Hailey and her sweet family for many years and I feel like I’ve been able to watch her grow up!  Hailey is not only beautiful, but she is also kind and smart!  She is going to make the most incredible mother and I […]

Zimmerwald Estate always makes for a beautiful portrait setting!  So, of course, I was thrilled when Renee and Chris chose this location!  These two are such a blast to be around and by the end of the session I felt like I had known them my entire life!  The entire afternoon was filled with fun […]

Biltmore Estate engagement sessions never get old, especially when you’re working with the sweetest couples!  This was my first time shooting there during the holiday season and it was so much fun!  Allison and Shane drove all the way up from Morehead City for this magical session and it was extra dreamy! Allison and Shane […]

If you don’t recognize this sweet couple then you’re not visiting the blog near enough!  🙂 It’s hard to know where to start with this beautiful anniversary session in downtown Belmont.  I first met Cassie and Charlie at their engagement session back in May of 2020 and we immediately hit it off!  I never imagined […]

HEY THERE!  I'M ASHLEY!

I'm a small-town, North Carolina wedding photographer, and a full-time spaghetti enthusiast!  If I'm not behind my camera or computer, you'll be able to find me at the barn with my horses or in the garden - I'm pretty sure that I'm a wannabe plant lady at heart!

The blog is here to not only showcase weddings and portraits, but also to be a resource for clients and other photographers. You'll find session and photography tips, style guides, and so much more!  If there's something specific you're interested in, shoot me a message - I'd love to hear all about it!
