Well, the secret is out…BRP is moving! So, what does this mean for the future of BRP? Don’t panic because this only means that we’re making a few adjustments to our services!

Pop the champagne and let’s celebrate because this month makes 15 YEARS for Broad River Photography! After many failures and only a handful of accomplishments, it’s crazy to think I made it this far! I started this journey when there was no social media, no Pinterest, no real marketing tools, and no online resources. I […]

In the historic town of Lincolnton there sat an abandoned cotton mill.  Three years ago, a couple saw great potential in the mill and took a leap of faith.  Since then, extensive renovations have been taking place and the mill, now named BrickTree Brewing Co., will soon open as a brewery and event venue. Carolina […]

Last week was bittersweet as I met with Sarah for the last time, as my intern.  We reminisced about all of the crazy things we’ve been through together over the past 8 months and the goals we have for the upcoming year. After last year’s 35 weddings, I realized I needed some help.  I set […]

As a wedding photographer in North Carolina, I don’t always have a second shooter on hand and often prefer to shoot solo. However, there are times when it is critical to have a second photographer on board. Whether you’re trying to build your portfolio and need the wedding experience OR you just prefer to shoot […]

When the all amazing Patty Davis, of Carolina Roses, approached me about doing a styled session with her at a new and upcoming venue, I almost couldn’t contain my excitement!

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!
