OKAY FRIENDS. SO YOU'VE LOOKED OVER MY PAGE, YOU'VE DECIDED YOU CAN GET DOWN WITH MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE AND BAD JOKES, AND YOU WANT TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE GETTING YOURSELF INTO. LET'S GET DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTIES. WE'LL TALK PRICING AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME. SOUND GOOD? LET'S DO THIS.
FEATURES & AWARDS
What To Expect
I am passionate about elopements. I fully believe that the smallest weddings can be the best ones, and so I specialize in elopements and intimate weddings with under 50 guests. Whether it’s running off to Santorini or saying your vows at that gorgeous lake by your house, I would love to capture the intimacy, emotion, and happiness of your day. Whatever your vision, I believe that every moment of your wedding day has beauty and deserves to be documented. I am here to help you have a relaxed, beautiful, and FUN wedding day so you can get back to focusing on what really matters: each other.
If you are just looking for a photographer to show up and get those typical stiff prom poses where you’re just smiling at the camera all the time…we honestly might not be the best fit. And if you’re just shopping around trying to find the cheapest Utah photographer, you probably won’t value what I have to offer. Which is cool, because let’s be real, I want you to find the photographer that best meets your needs! But I want to be more than just another wedding vendor. I wanna be there to capture who you really are and what your relationship feels like.
So. If you’re fueled by fresh mountain air and laughing till you *almost* pee, then keep reading. I pinky promise to make our time together as easy and fun as I can, even though I know you’ll show up saying that you’re “so awkward in front of a camera”. By the end of it you won’t even notice there’s a camera and you’ll just be so grateful for that weird awesome human you’re about to marry.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Where are you based out of and do you travel?
I'm based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I am always down to travel! I've shot weddings from Yosemite to Patagonia and everywhere in between. I love to explore new places, but if you're down to make a little vacation out of your photos, Utah has some BREATHTAKING scenery like Zion National Park, the Salt Flats, and some stupidly pretty mountains I can introduce you to!
Do we have to do a super long hike to get cool photos?
Absolutely not! An adventure shoot doesn't have to mean traipsing for five miles through the wilderness. (Though, if you're down then SO AM I!) I know plenty of gorgeous spots, both well known and hidden gems. Whether you envision eloping in Iceland or in the backyard of your cabin, I'll be there to capture the emotions, scenery, and story of your day.
Okay but what if we suck at posing?
People so often come to me saying "oh, we're so awkward in front of a camera, we aren't the picture-taking type". My friend, I've got news for you: absolutely nobody knows what to do in front of a camera. But that's where the magic comes in.
I'm not out here to capture you in stiff, forced poses. I'm here to create moments with you so we can capture FEELINGS. And those kinds of moments are what I'm here to document so you can remember them forever. So deep breaths. Don't worry, I'll direct you every step of the way so you never have to guess and you'll be shocked at how natural it will feel.
What's your wedding day involvement style?
If you're looking for a photographer that will just melt into the background so you don't even notice they're there...I might not be your girl. I'll never distract from the day or the moments at hand, but I'll also be there to remind you to drink water, feed you snacks, help you keep a timeline straight, have a bottle of hairspray on hand, whatever you need! (And you better believe I know how to get people on a dance floor.) I find that truly becoming friends with my clients and their loved ones helps to make everyone much more comfortable with a camera around and the day goes much smoother!
WE FINALLY MAKE YOUR BIG DAY HAPPEN! YOU'LL GO HOME WITH GREAT MEMORIES AND I'LL SEND YOU THE PERFECTLY EDITED PICS TO REMIND YOU OF THIS DAY FOR YEARS TO COME. WE STAY FRIENDS FOREVER. YOU NAME YOUR DOG AFTER ME. LIFE IS GOOD.
ONCE WE'VE NAILED DOWN A DATE AND LOCATION, I'LL SEND AN EMAIL THROUGH MY BOOKING SITE TO HAVE YOU GET THE CONTRACT SIGNED AND DEPOSIT PAID TO GET YOU OFFICIALLY ON THE CALENDAR! WE'LL SPEND THE WEEKS & MONTHS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING PLANNING AND PREPARING YOUR WEDDING THAT WILL BE COMPLETELY UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC TO YOU!
CHECK OUT MY PRICING (BELOW) AND FAQ'S (ABOVE) AND REACH OUT THROUGH MY CONTACT PAGE. WE'LL CHAT A BIT AND MAKE SURE WE'RE A GOOD FIT AND GO OVER ALL THE DEETS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE BOOKING
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions! I realize a good majority of you have never tried to plan a wedding before which can be a little intimidating. Lucky for you, weddings are my livelihood, and I'm here to help as much as I possibly can.
Intimate Weddings & Elopements
***Customized Packages Available***
Stateside and international destination wedding coverage is available and some destinations are subject to special pricing. (See travel dates here)
Head on over to my contact page to shoot me a message and see if we're a good fit!
Formal/First Look Session
I ALWAYS recommend adding a formal or First Look session to your wedding package! We'll get pics of you both in your formal wedding attire separate from your wedding day. This gives you the best lighting, no rushed timelines, and we can plan around unpredictable weather!
Engagement & Adventure Sessions
Engagements! They're kind of the kick-off to your wedding, right? These and adventure shoots are definitely some of my favorite sessions because I really get to know both of you as a couple outside of the stress of a wedding day. You two just get to flirt and run around and I'll do the rest.
your first family heirloom
All of my packages are customizable, but the #1 thing I hope all my wedding clients choose to include in their package is a custom designed album. An album tells the story of your day in a way that no other product can. And it lives on to tell that story to your children and grandchildren. In this digital age it's easy to forget about physical prints, but when your future kids are sitting on your lap and flipping through these pages with you, you'll be so glad to be able to share this tangible & beautiful moment together.
I offer two gorgeous album styles to fit your needs, professionally curated and designed by yours truly.
Preserving your love story has never meant more
"Ashley absolutely made our wedding day even more special than we ever imagined. Before the wedding, she was patient as we made decisions and communicated often to ensure our visions aligned for our destination adventure wedding in Patagonia. On the big day, she captured every amazing moment, whether it was spontaneous or intentional, and provided unbelievable pictures to remind us of the best day of our lives."
- Stephanie & Hannah
"When we got engaged we almost skipped engagement photos, but last-minute booked with Ashley. OH MY GOSH. Ashley PERFECTLY captured our relationship, and when I look at the photos I feel the love and excitement of being engaged all over again. The photos themselves are unbelievably stunning, but more than that we had so much fun shooting with Ashley, which I didn't even think was possible for a photo shoot. You MUST book with Ashley, especially for life events that only happen once!"
- Ash & Alex
"Ashley, you are INCREDIBLE. I felt like we instantly clicked and honestly, it felt like we eloped with our best friend (not just a photographer. Our images are quite literally perfect and second to none. It's not because of us, it's because of the love Ashley put into each shot. The details she captured were immaculate, really. There are no words to describe how thankful we are to have had you be a part of our adventure."
