Midtown Park is my favorite of all of the Charlotte parks!  Paired with a gorgeous couple, like Shelby and Sean, my photographer heart could have exploded with excitement!  You would think these two have modeled before and they are just as sweet as they are beautiful! Shelby and Sean met while attending Clemson University together. […]

This Lake Lure anniversary session just warms my heart!  Grace and Zach got married during the pandemic and although it was a small and intimate wedding, they wouldn’t have had it any other way!  So to celebrate their anniversary, we headed to Morse Park in Lake Lure. It was the most beautiful day and the […]

This Lake Park engagement session was the sweetest!  Jaclyn and Chandler wanted to incorporate their precious pups so they chose to do their session in their beautiful neighborhood!  With multiple lakes, gardens, and trails, it was the perfect setting! Chandler proposed on the beach in Jamaica, on their four year anniversary.  Jaclyn had a feeling […]

I’m sure you probably recognize this sweet couple from their multiple features on the blog!  I’ve gotten to know Krysta and Jordan really well over the past two years from their Greenville engagements, to Krysta’s stunning mountaintop bridals, and their incredible wedding featuring Rameses!  They are not just clients, they are dear friends! When we […]

I have known Kaitlynn for many years and she is one of my dear friends!  So when she reached out and asked if I would photograph their little impromptu ceremony on the court square, I was ecstatic!  This sweet couple had no interest in having a big wedding – all that matters to them is […]

This engagement session, at Marshall Park, was so much fun!  Soon after I met Sydney and Matt, I felt like I had known them my entire life!  She’s from Louisiana and he’s from Colorado.  So how did they meet living so far apart? Sydney and Matt met at her cousin’s wedding in New Orleans 3 […]

This was my first trip to the McGill Rose Garden and I fell in love!  Jodi almost chose this as her wedding venue, but decided to use it as the engagement session location instead!  She loves the garden vibe so this was perfect!  It might have been rainy, but it sure was beautiful! After making […]

Caroline and Teja love the water so it was only fitting that we do their engagement session at Jetton Park on Lake Norman.  Photographing couples in love is what I live for and these two were amazing to work with!  They met while attending Clemson University together and have been inseparable ever since. Back in […]

I’m sure you all recognize this lovely face by now!  I try to get my beautiful niece, Mackenzie, in front of my camera as often as possible.  Not just because she’s a dream to photograph, but because it’s a great excuse to spend more time with her! Wesley joined in on the photoshoot fun and […]

This NC Arboretum anniversary session is extra special.  Last year, Ashlyn and AJ were forced to change their big wedding plans and have a small backyard wedding instead.  Although Ashlyn didn’t get a chance to wear her wedding gown or have a big event, she said it was perfect in every way! So for their […]

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!
