When I first met Darci, I felt like I had known her for years! She is kind, smart, and extremely photogenic! Surprisingly, she told me that she was pretty nervous about the session, but she could have fooled me! Darci posed effortlessly and needed next to no posing guidance! You better believe I’m going to […]

Every once in awhile, you cross paths with someone who you know is going to change lives.  Katie is that person for me. I first met Katie in 2012, she was only 8 years old.  I was doing a session for she and her family and even at such a young age, she was wise […]

I have known Kaitlyn for several years and watching her grow into the amazing young woman she is today has been such a blessing!  So of course when she reached out about her senior session, I was ecstatic!  Zimmerwald Estate was the perfect setting and we were lucky enough to miss the storms! Kaitlyn has […]

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 college senior session, at Gardner-Webb University, is an extra special one. Taylor and Tyler met at Gardner-Webb University in 2016.  They were placed in the same college introductory class (UNIV111) and it was history from there.  They later led their own UNIV111 class with a group of freshmen, which was one of their greatest […]

This GWU senior session was a dream!  When Haley arrived, I already knew we were going to have a blast!  Not only is she a knockout, but she is also kind and fun-spirited!  Her style is on point and her stunning blue eyes will captivate anyone! Although things are a little upside down right now, […]

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t fighting back tears writing this blog post today.  This senior session, in downtown Rutherfordton, is closest to my heart and one I will cherish for a lifetime. I have known sweet Mackenzie since she was a toddler and consider her my niece.  I have watched her […]

Senior sessions have quickly become one of my new favorites!  Documenting this important stage in life and hanging with beautiful ladies is so rewarding!  And let’s be honest…they help keep me up to date on fashion and the latest trends!  🙂 Hannah’s breathtaking session, at Gardner-Webb, has truly stolen my heart!  No only is she […]

Riley’s senior session was truly whimsical!  She is such a natural in front of the camera and the props she chose gives the images an editorial feel!  How about that gorgeous red hair?! She has such a sweet and kind personality and was such a joy to work with!  She will be graduating from Gardner-Webb […]

My fabulous intern, Sarah, has only been with me for a month and it feels like we’ve known each other for years!  She has been such a blessing to have around and our little shootouts are so fun!!  This girl doesn’t take a single bad picture and I just love getting her in front of […]

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!
