You want a photographer who is so much more than just a person with a camera. You want someone emotionally invested and who genuinely cares. You want thoughtful, heartfelt, genuine photographs that represent you and your loved ones. I hear you, and you deserve to have it.
I truly believe in investing in my clients from the time you fill out that contact form. I want to know what makes your love special and what is most important to you. This allows me to capture you with thoughtful intention so you can just relax, have FUN and be yourself.
I first picked up a camera over 9 years ago. I went to school in Kona Hawaii at YWAM (Youth With a Mission) I had 2 main passions - Jesus and photography. So I signed up for the school of photography at this bible school thousands of miles away. Photography is how I give, how I love. I am most thankful for the people it brings into my life and the relationships I form. I'm not just your photographer, but your friend! This is a big deal and I want you to now how much I care about what I do. Life is a beautiful gift & every season of life is worth celebrating and I believe capturing these milestones with genuine love & grace is what you deserve.
"Ashley J is hands down the best photographer I’ve ever worked with. Not only are her pictures incredibly beautiful, but her professionalism makes you feel so comfortable being in front of the camera. Her posing guidance and knowledge of proper lighting makes you feel like a model and your pictures look like a work of art!! She is truly amazing with experience beyond her years! I am so impressed with her and will continue to use Ashley over and over and over for all my photography needs!"
"We love AshleyJ Photo! Not only did our pictures turn out the best we've ever had, but it was a blast. Ashley is kind, attentive, and knows what you want before you know you want it. My husband literally HATES photos and he left the shoot saying that Ashley will be the one to do all of our photos from now on. 100 stars out of 5, love love love our photos!!!"
Zach and I were married 12/31/19 outside at night in the rain and snow, and Ashley braved it all with a smile on her face! she was so attentive and amazing through the whole process from hiring to delivering our wedding gallery. She was flexible with our needs and found a solution in different situations. Her attention to detail and capturing special moments is incredible, she delivered above and beyond our exceptions and we couldn't be happier with our experience with her. Ashley will forever be our photographer!
Words are not enough to describe just how amazing Ashley is, as a photographer and a person. I fell in love with Ashley’s work on Instagram and booked her as soon as we could for our wedding. Within the first few minutes of meeting her for our engagement photos we knew we were more than lucky to have her capture our special day. You don’t have to know Ashley for long to realize she is passionate, genuine, talented, humble, and kind. She takes pride in making her clients comfortable and happy while shooting. She worked for 11 hours on our wedding day, had to travel home the next day and sent sneak peeks to us on Monday and we are IN LOVE. I feel like I need to write her a message thanking her every time I look at the photos and we haven’t even gotten our full album. She goes above and beyond. We will forever be grateful that she was our photographer for one of our favorite days. She is WORTH every penny and more!
Where do I even begin with the compliments? Ashley and her husband are the dynamic duo of a team. We met them about two years prior to our wedding date and our biggest concern was feeling comfortable in front of the camera. We were blown away with kindness, flexibility, transparent pricing and quick communication. On top of everything, our photos are absolutely incredible and we couldn't have wished for anything better. If you are considering Ashley for your wedding, highly recommend just having a conversation with her because you will not regret it.
