I’m struggling to find the right words for this post… Patty (Carolina Roses) and I have been working together for many years and we love collaborating on sessions and weddings together. So when Southern Bride reached out to us in April about publishing one of our styled shoots in their summer/fall issue, I thought it […]

I know this isn’t my usual kind of post, but I felt compelled to share my vintage bicycle restoration and how it was used as a prop in my own session!  On this facelift Friday, I’m sharing before and afters of this past project. A couple of years ago, a friend gave me this rust […]

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 […]

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!
