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 […]

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 […]

This styled bridal session at The Beck Barn was even more amazing than I thought it would be!  I like to plan styled shoots at the beginning of each year to recharge and get my creative juices flowing.  I had an amazing team of vendors that came together to help bring my vision to life! […]

This bridal portrait session at The Laurel Room at High Vista was nothing short of magical!  Lauren wanted her session somewhere with mountain views and nice fall colors and this venue was the jackpot!  Her flowy dress was perfect for this setting and it even had pockets!  I was completely obsessed! Her cathedral veil was […]

Mallory and Tobi’s engagement session, at the famous Biltmore Estate, makes my heart skip a beat!  You probably recognize them from their recent proposal at Limestone.  Getting to know these two over the past year has been amazing!  There’s nothing more rewarding than when clients become your friends! When we arrived at the estate, I […]

Heather and Kevin first met while attending UNC Asheville, so it was only fitting to do their anniversary session at the place where it all started.  These two will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary in December.  It’s obvious in their pictures that their love is just as strong today as it was when I […]

This Biltmore Estate anniversary session has melted my heart in every single way.  Not only is Teresa my best friend, but she is also the kindest person you’ll ever meet.  She was my maid of honor 11 years ago and her daughter was my flower girl! Teresa and Brandon recently celebrated their 20 year anniversary […]

Morse Park, in Lake Lure, is one of my favorite locations!  So much so, Aaron and I had our anniversary session here last year!  There is breathtaking scenery everywhere you look and was perfect for Savannah and Nick’s engagement session! After rescheduling their engagement session three times, due to the pandemic, we were finally able […]

Krysta’s Point Lookout bridal session was a dream in every way!  We had been battling constant storms leading up to her session, but the morning of she said she had a feeling the weather would clear. Krysta was very close with her grandmother, who passed away just a couple of weeks before the session.  She […]

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!
