loving words from lovely people

I decided to get married in my backyard in 10 short days. I reached out to Ashley for make up, rentals, and photography. To say she made my whole wedding day would be putting it lightly. The flower wall, my make up, and photos are all/were amazing. Every single time Ashley does my make up she knocks it out of the park. It is so nice to sit down and let her work her magic without having to worry about the outcome. 10/10 wouldn’t have had the wedding day I did without all of her services.

We hired Ashley to be a part of our intimate vow renewal for our anniversary. I am so happy she was there to capture these special moments that we will cherish for years to come. Her attention to fine details made each of these photos breathtaking. These photos are truly amazing. Her personality made us all feel so comfortable with her and that is reflected in our photos. We love Ashley!

Ashley was so sweet and fun to work with! This was the first time we have ever gotten photos taken, so we were not the easiest to work with, but Ashley worked her magic and gave us beautiful photos to hang in our home! Highly recommend!
