Joy Filled Photography

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.

your memories

hey you!

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. 

With Love + grace

I'm Ashley Blair Jourdonnais



"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!"

"WOW!!! I'm blown away!"

"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!!!"

"100 stars out of 5"

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!

Outstanding Experience!!
