I AM ASHLEY

Getting to know you is important to me and I want nothing more than to capture your personalities honestly and the greatness of your day and your love naturally.

I love shooting elopements and wont stick to the status quo. I seek rawness and purity of emotion, deep connection, and working together to bring that out in each of the people I photograph and to capture it in an artful way. I love the stories my images tell, for this is the beginning to one of life’s greatest adventures.

You love each other more than either of you could ever conceive, you show that love passionately and you don’t care who’s watching. Perhaps you're an entrepreneur like me ‘cause no one’s gonna to tell you what to do;  you’ve always made your own choices. Maybe you live in a cool and quirky apartment in Seattle or maybe you’re from out of town and crave the lush green beauty that is the Pacific Northwest. No matter where you hail from, I have helped many a couple plan their dream elopements and small weddings.

So, let’s climb up to that mountain view, shout your love to the wind, hair flowing, dress floating on the breeze. Let’s start your story and continue with the chapters that follow.

Embrace the now moments forever.


I hope by reading this you’ve got to know me a little better, this is the start to our grand adventure. Let’s meet, let’s chat about your dreams and let's make some magic!

From the moment I picked up a camera for the first time on our family vacations and captured the intimate moments my family shared, I knew I was onto something special. Seeing those memories my family had together, was the perfect precursor to my career today.

Through years of learning and life experiences, my camera was never far away.  My dreams to capture intimate and emotional moments for others ultimately led me to my career as a destination elopement photographer; after all, what day is more intimate and emotional than your wedding?

In business for 5+ years, when I’m not making memories with my two children, love of my life Stephen, or snuggling my cat Morty, I nurture my career and goals to travel the world by shooting a certain number of destination elopements and small intimate weddings annually. Seeing the world while documenting such an important day for couples remains one of my greatest pleasures in both my photography business and in my life.

And as I did for my family who still reminisce over the album of photos I took 20+ years ago, I look forward to creating unique and beautiful photography with you which will act as a window back to your most intimate moments for years to come-- and all with a great passion for photography, art, and your love for one another.
