Meet Ashley

Living just outside of Pittsburgh with my fiancé, Frank, our two cats, Stink and Pants, + geckos, Celeste and Dwayne. I am an ex-woman in tech, sustainability nerd, and pack rat. I collect vintage cameras, save every card I’ve received, and my prized posessions are family photo albums. I'm on a quest to find the best pad thai (right now it’s Thai Tamarind in Bellevue) and I exclusively watch documentaries or stand-up comedy. Sometimes I have bangs, sometimes I'm blonde, but all the time, I am very laid back and I don't like to take my life too seriously. I'm a deeply nostalgic and sentimental person. Photos mean everything to me and that's why I do what I do, the way I do it.

I grew up in the era of PicNik and underwater disposables. I had a Flip video camera, a YouTube channel, and a dream. I have always been an artsy-fart and learning how to use a DSLR camera in 2014 yearbook class sealed the deal. I credit all of this to my grandfather's love of capturing our family growing up, passed down to my mom, and onto me. I became the paparazzi friend which evolved to second shooting weddings in 2018. This changed my life. From then, I've invested in education and experiences to refine my style and continuously am growing as an artist. 

Frank and I will be wed in June of 2024 (this YEAR!) so I am expectant that being in the role of a bride will further mold my approach to how I document wedding days. I can't wait to meet you and learn more about you, too!
