the experience

for couples who want timeless photos, joy-filled memories from their stress-free wedding day and to do things their way

Brady & Heather

"Ashley's pictures have become our backdrop on our walls, our backgrounds on our phones, our memories that allow us to relive the day like it was yesterday."

Hi, I'm Ashley, and I am an Arizona wedding and elopement photographer in Phoenix, serving incredible and adventurous-ish couples all over this beautiful state.

ANd trying to find the perfect PHOTOGRAPHER?

and you NEED GUIDANCE ON Well ... everything?

you're ready to quit stressing?

let me guess ...

I'll be your wedding day best friend who happens to take awesome, romantic, joy-filled photos you'll treasure forever.

All Phoenix and surrounding area weddings are fully customized for each couple based on their wants and needs.

Let's Talk about how your arizona wedding photography experience can be amazing

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 Arizona 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!

If you want, we chat on the phone so we can go over your wants, needs and vision.

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!          

What's better than being just another vendor? Becoming your trusted friend.

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!

I'll be your wedding day BFF who happens to also take some bad-ass photos.

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!

When the day is over, I want you to hold your memories in your hands, and see them on your walls.

Step four: your first family heirloom

LEO & KElly

Our wedding was a dream come true; Ashley perfectly captured the magic of our wedding, and we never would have been able to do it without her!

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

Not only will you get beautiful photos, but, you're getting someone who will walk with you through the entire wedding process from start to finish!

In the pre-wedding prep, I will:
  • Help guide you through the craziness of planning a wedding, to ensure you get the best photos possible
  • Create a customized wedding timeline for photography purposes for your day, based on your wants and needs
  • Offer recommendations on trusted local vendors
  • Reduce the amount of stress in planning 
  • Assist you with outfit selection(s) and location(s) for your engagement photos

And then, during the wedding?
  • Be your wedding day BFF 
  • Keep the day as stress-free as humanly possible
  • Make sure the family photos are fast, fun and easy 
  • Work fast so your spouse-to-be as well as your wedding party actually has fun during photos
  • Be a buffer between you and your loving but sometimes overbearing fill-in-the-blank-family-member (IYKYK)

Finally, after the wedding?
  • Send you a small wedding preview gallery within 48 hours so you can immediately revel in your newlywed joy, order thank you cards with your photos on them, and print out a family photo to give to your parents
  • Deliver your full gallery within 12 weeks
  • Share your images with your vendors so they won't pester you for them (with permission, of course!)
  • Help guide you through the process of designing your keepsake wedding album and filling your home with wall art from your favorite day ever
  • Be your friend for life

When you're hiring me, you're not just getting someone who takes great photos, but you're getting someone who will walk with you through the entire wedding process from start to finish. I am not a "show up and ask who the bride is" kind of photographer; I am the "get-out-of-your-makeup-chair to hug me when I get there" kind of friend, who happens to also take incredible photos. And trust me, there's a huge difference between the two!

Basically, I will be your wedding day BFF ... and not to get all corny, but, to quote our Friends Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe ... 

So, congratulations on your engagement and I can't wait to be your wedding photographer in Phoenix!

I'll be there for youuuuu ...

wall art

Your memories deserve to be seen every day, and not just scrolled by on Instagram or buried in an album on Facebook or Instagram. I will help you with designing your home with prints, framed art and canvases.

heirloom albums

Albums are my favorite way to reminisce, because they are something tangible that your children and grandchildren can hold in their hands for years to come. You'll have the option of luxury linen or Italian leather album covers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are engagement sessions so important?

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.  🏳️‍🌈

Are high resolution digital files included? Printing rights?

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.
