telling your story the way it deserves to be told

If we were to tell someone about ourselves in a tiny, little paragraph, we would express that we want to be friends with you. We love people, and we love life. We strongly believe in generosity and service—and we strive to find joy in all circumstances. We’re peacekeepers—and we’re outgoing, happy individuals.
Our work, friends, and family matter deeply to our core, and we pour everything we have into each of these aspects. Together, we are here to serve, to love, to laugh, and to enjoy this life that God has given us. We can’t wait to connect with you!

My love for photography birthed when I was going into my freshman year of high school when my family relocated to Lubbock TX. That summer I spent a lot of time photographing my sister which blossomed into photographing friends and eventually my first wedding on Halloween in 2015. I then decided to further pursue my passion and went to school at the University of the Nations in Kona Hawaii. Since then I have photographed over 300 weddings and feel more deeply connected to my work everyday. There is purpose written all over it. My desire to serve people through photography intensifies still. The way it brings people together and celebrates the beauty of love and life leaves me in tears often. 

"Photography brings people together. It captures what's most important in life. It reminds us that monetary materialism is fleeting and at the end of the day, as long as you have your people, all is good in the world."


" From our first initial meeting to the delivery of our photos I was so impressed. She is so personable, genuine, and fun! My husband does NOT like to get his photo taken and was very anxious but she put him right at ease. We could not be happier with our photos and will use her for all of our photography needs in the future."

" I would absolutely recommend Ashley as your photographer for any occasion!! I originally used her as my wedding photographer, but also had her take my graduation pictures. She is an absolute dream to work with!! Not only did everyone love her at my wedding, she finished editing my photos so fast, and every single photo was absolutely amazing. Going through my wedding photos is like going back through and reliving my special day. I am so glad I chose Ashley to be apart of my wedding day, and I will be using her time and time again!" - Kaylee Mahan

"Ashley is wonderful! She did an amazing job of capturing our day and making us all look beautiful. The entire experience, from beginning to end, was easy and stress-free. She is very attentive to details and makes you feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. She does a wonderful job of directing, posing, and adjusting on the fly when things come up (like rain or the scheduled flow of things changes). She adds her own style of creativity to her photos that turnout completely unique to you. I truly appreciated her professionalism, easy going nature, creative approach, and overall hard work. If you are lucky enough to work with Ashley, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend her to anyone!"

"You couldn't ask for a better photographer than Ashley J. If you're looking for someone who is extremely professional while somehow creating a friendship this is your photographer. Fantastic pricing, great to deal with. Photos that can't be matched. You'll be hard pressed to find another photographer that comes close."
