for couples who want timeless photos, joy-filled memories from their stress-free wedding day and to do things their way
let me guess ...
All Phoenix and surrounding area weddings are fully customized for each couple based on their wants, needs and budgets.
With over 13 years of wedding photography experience, something that I have learned over the years is how unique every wedding is. There is no one-size-fits-all cookie cutter wedding, and your special day deserves individualized attention. Every couple has different wants and needs, and together we'll create a customized collection for your perfect Palm Springs wedding.
If you hate talking on the phone (which I totally get!), that's totally fine. We can chat via text or keep it to email!
Step One: A Phone Date
This is where my enneagram 2w3 comes into play: it's very, very important to me that I'm not just another wedding vendor for my couples. I want you to feel 100% comfortable with me, welcoming me into your world. In order to make sure you have the best, most least-stressful day possible, you will receive customized planning for your wedding to ensure that your day reflects your vision, your relationship and the most exciting day of your lives (so far!). This also includes spending time together for your engagement session!
Step Two: Build Our Friendship
This is the moment we have both been waiting for: your wedding day!! We have done so much planning and prep work for today, and it is my goal for you to live in each moment, soaking up the love and energy all while documenting and telling the story with my camera. And heck yeah, I'll see you on the dance floor!
Step three: the best day ever
Within 48 hours of your wedding, you will receive a small preview gallery so you immediately have photos to share on social media, and even order your thank you cards. 6-8 weeks later, you'll receive your full gallery and together we will create your first heirloom. This will be the album your future children and grandchildren will treasure!
Step four: your first family heirloom
Have no fear, Ashley will take care of all your stress!

What's the difference between hiring me and someone else?

Ashley came highly recommended by our wedding planner and far exceeded all expectations.
Does this sound like the kind of wedding experience you want to have?
I'm ready to learn more
Yes! I have a trusted list of amazing photographers who would pinch-hit for me just as readily as I would for them. Community over competition, friends!
Not only do I think engagement sessions are fun for couples and a great way to share the excitement of your upcoming wedding with friends and family, but I also feel like it's a vital part of the wedding process. Why? Because it allows us to hang out, get to know each other and learn a lot of important need-to-know info before the wedding!
To put it simply: HELL YEAH, I absolutely travel. You'll see on my blog I have shot coast to coast, north to south - I love to travel. I am currently based out of Surprise, Arizona (a suburb on the west side of Phoenix), and there are no travel fees to anywhere in the Phoenix region, Prescott or Sedona. Outside of Arizona? I charge a flat rate of $1,000 to cover flight, hotel and rental car.
AbsoFREAKINGlutely. I am proud of to be an LGBT inclusive wedding and family photographer in Phoenix (and all over Arizona). Since moving away from Palm Springs in 2017, my opportunity to photograph LGBTQ couples has not been as much as it was when we lived in the Coachella Valley, so you might not see it recently on my blog, but I'd love to invite you to learn more information by clicking here. 🏳️🌈
I want you guys to print your images, make albums and give them as gifts. You will receive all of the retouched digital files in high resolution, with printing rights and you'll also receive an online gallery where you can download your images, purchase prints and share.
