Ashley Durham

photographer & business educator

True-to-life photographer preserving love, laughter & the little moments for families, weddings & seniors in the desert southwest.


I am just gonna come out and say it: I am so excited you're here. This is my favorite little corner of the internet because this is where I share all about my life, my work and everything I love. 

Who am I? Well, I'm a photographer that married my just-out-of-high-school sweetheart back in 2003 and had four of the most amazing babies that are now full-grown teenagers. I love the sunrise and extra hot coffee, spending time with people I care about is my love language and I will never *not* stop what I'm doing to say hi to a puppy dog. I love marketing and educating women to be their own boss, I want to help you cover your walls with amazing memories from your wedding and with your kids, and I'll do it all with a messy bun, a big hug and some great meme texts.

Oh, hey new friend!

Oh, you wanna know more? C'mon in!

Because your important moments should be

as fun as you are.

Book your session





Capturing you and the people you love during your most special moments isn’t just smiling at the camera.

The truth is, you want photos that are authentic, not forced or fake, and totally true to the moment.

Not trendy, not posed. not overly-edited: Just freaking real.

I have created the RADDEST wedding and photo session experiences for my couples, families and seniors in Lake Havasu, Palm Springs and surrounding areas.

I'll guide you through the process as your wedding photographer - from booking through delivering your prints and albums, and I'll continue to be there for you and your family for all the important milestones of your lives.

During your family photography session, we will play games together, you'll laugh until your sides ache and together we'll create real moments that show the magic of the real you, your family, your senior year or your wedding day.

She is such a talented photographer and has such a passion for what she does! Ashley truly loves what she does and it shows through the beauty of her photographs. Hiring her was the best decision I made; working with her made it feel like I knew her for years, she made me feel gorgeous, helped guide my awkward self through poses, and climbed in the wild to get the perfect shot."
— Danielle & Josh

"Stop looking and stressing over who to hire for your photographer: hire Ashley!"

Ashley recently did our engagement pictures and we felt like we’ve know her for years! She’s so welcoming, talented and amazing at what she does! 
— Paige and Josh

We absolutely cannot wait for her to do our wedding pictures!

That is just the type of people that they are, and they love Love. They love Love of every kind, and I truly believe that is part of their magic. They were no longer just “the wedding photographers;” they were the dear friends that understood us and our love and captured all of the magic of our special day that was truly reminiscent of who we are as people.
— Rachel and Preston

"What I need to stress to all of you reading this is how important it is that these two became our friends."

I could write a novel about how amazing Ashley is! She absolutely made our day the best that it could be ... She was super communicative, she’s so creative and she is just the best person ever. We were so blessed to have Ashley and her wonderful husband there on our day and we can’t wait to have her capture a family picture in the future ❤️Thank you for everything.
— Hope and Tom 

Out of all the services and people we hired that day, she was the best decision we made. 

Ashley was great with my kids and was able to get some GREAT pictures of them! She is very friendly and great to work with!! Highly recommend!!
— Niki
