This branding session was so much fun!  Mallory is not only one of my brides, but she is also a dear friend!  So when she reached out to me a few months ago about launching a wedding planning and design company, I was incredibly excited! Mallory is so personable and has a great eye for […]

Almost three years ago, Sierra and Dakotah got married at Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard.  They will be welcoming their first baby in October and I’m so excited to meet him!  When it came time for the maternity session, it was only fitting that we do it at the place where it all started!  I’ve gotten […]

This bridal session in downtown Morganton might just be my favorite of my career!  Not just because Kaitlynn is one of my closest friends, but also because it was so incredibly beautiful!  I literally tear up each time I look through her pictures! Growing up, Kaitlynn was my neighbor and I used to give her […]

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 […]

Emily and Zach had the sweetest wedding at the Gingerbread Meeting House!  The dusty blue color theme was so classic and timeless!  The bouquets were full of huge peonies and Erica’s cascading bouquet was to die for!  Her intricate gown might just be one of my favorites of the season and you know I had […]

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 […]

Farm weddings have definitely become a new favorite of mine!  Erica and Lee’s small and intimate wedding was so much fun and one I’ll never forget!  They had a large tent set up in the pasture, where the ceremony and reception was held.  The tables were decorated with beautiful wooden boxes filled with fresh florals, […]

I’m going to be dreaming about Christa and Mark’s wedding for years to come!  This was my first trip to Heyward Manor and I’m quite sure it’s my new favorite venue!  Although an evening storm forced us to move the ceremony inside, it was still the most beautiful wedding! The blush and sage palette paired […]

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!
