My name is Ashley. I'm just out here trying to be the best photographer I can be.
Born and raised in the Central Valley of California, after high school I moved east to study painting and photo and got myself a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. After school, I had an itch to see more of the U.S. and ended up in Cleveland, Ohio, where I began to pursue a career in marketing, while honing my skills in the captured image and rediscovering my deep need for sunny California weather. If you know about winters in the Midwest then you know what I’m talking about…
Today, I'm back in Central California, and I like to think that I take photos that make you feel things. Whether I'm capturing a wedding day, a family outing, a product, or brand, my mission is the same: create authentic images that get you right in the feels.
I'm a rebel at heart; I learned the rules at art school and now I'm always down to break them. Also down to hop fences, road trip, climb trees, and end a photoshoot covered in dirt/ocean water/ etc. I became a full time photographer because I wanted to live life on my terms, and when you’re with me, I want you to feel like you can be yourself too.
What I deliver is simple: I follow the light, laugh a lot, and see every person and thing I photograph as beautiful, so that you can too.
