I think June 24, 2006, was one of the HOTTEST days of the year... My hairdresser was a no-show, I forgot my veil at the hotel, the A/C at the venue was broken...
But when my Dad escorted me through the double doors, and I saw HIM, none of that mattered...

Marriage isn't a piece of cake. What I've learned over the past 10 years is that you never "arrive". You never come to a point where you can stop trying, stop dating, stop walking in grace with your partner. 

Knowing that I've been saved by Grace and that I have a Savior who demonstrated what Love really looks like, has helped me in my own marriage.

I tell all of my RJ-Couples...

"if you are having baby-fever, 
I invite you to come and spend the day with my three..."

Parenting has got to be one of THE hardest things I have ever done. No joke. We had this silly notion that having them all two years apart, would ensure that they would entertain each other. They do not play... They fight... And argue... 

With all that being said... I had no idea that my heart could survive outside of my body. They ARE my heart. I can't imagine my life without their laughter, their crying, their hugs & their tiny hands enfolded in mine... I wouldn't trade being their mommy for the world.

L.A. | the Ocean  
Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade | Westwood Village

love, love, love!

Even though I have travelled many places, 
L.A. is where we spend 90% of our vacations and getaways...

I love the majestic calm of the Ocean...
the street performers at the 3rd Street Promenade...
the vibe of Westwood Village 


(and of course, popping into diddy riese for THE best ice cream sandwich EVER)


CONFESSION: This is the one fave that I actually don't have an image!
I sense a trip to L.A. to rectify this situation... Stay tuned...

Music

Especially Boyz II Men... I mean, c'mon, their voices are like butter!

Other than that, I'm a pretty well rounded music-lover... 
with the exception of a few genres...

Because I want to invest into your lives and capture your love for future generations to see...

I want to get to know you on a personal level so that I can customize your experience to you and your fiance.

You are not a cookie cutter Bride & Groom, so why treat you like one?

I don't want to just shoot your wedding, I want to be vested in your lives so that by the end of our journey together, we are FAMILY... You know that you can rely on me... We build a trust together.



I'll be there from start to finish...

I'm not going to just show up with my camera and constantly be looking at my watch to make sure that I am only shooting the time you booked. 

I am in it for the long haul.  I want to make sure that I am the least of your worries on your wedding day.

In fact, I am the one thing you can count on and know that beyond a shadow of a doubt,  

I'LL BE THERE... I GOT THIS... I GOT YOU...

xo,Ashley

"Ashley is a great photographer to work with. Her and her team went above and beyond to make sure our special day was extra special and solely focused on me and my husband. 









I will forever be thankful for the way she captured our wedding day, a day that moves too quickly, allowing us to take it in and re-live it over and over again for the rest of our lives."

"Ashley was referred to us by a friend. When we first went to meet up with her, she was just the potential photographer for our wedding, but she became so much more. 







She was there every step of the way to offer help and support. She listened to us and payed attention to what we wanted. It was the most personal experience we had with someone we hired to help with our wedding. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out absolutely gorgeous! Ashley is beyond talented. Not only do we treasure our photos, but we also treasure our relationship with Ashley! She really is amazing."
