About Apaige Photography

My name is Ashley Young, although I like being called Paige (middle name).
I consider myself an artist, more so than a ‘wedding photographer,’ because I like to create and really make connections with people.
My photography style is one that reflects the personalities of who I am photographing. I don’t necessarily like ‘making up’ a day, as I do storytelling about that day.

My photography is a variety of posed imagery, lifestyle imagery (unposed), fine art based images, and quirky moments that hopefully my clients remember more than any of the above styles I offer.

My workflow is one that is not heavily edited, although sometimes I like to play around with more fine art based photography. This means that I will not alter your body when I edit your images. I love how you look, and I think you should too. I do edit out the occasional zit when I find it necessary, but I won’t alter a body to reflect a body that does not exist. I think our world needs to slow down and find acceptance in people, and altering body types is a way to go against that mindset, as well as make the unattainable body ‘ideal’ even more unattainable… and to be honest I want my clients to look at their images knowing they are beautiful in every way, and they exist.

I have been photographing since I was 16.
I interned with a studio photographer for 2 years from 16-18.
Went to Lake Michigan Community College from 18-20 – where I studied Film photography, and received my associates in Art.
I studied at Grand Valley State University from 20-23, and graduated with a Bachelors degree in both Advertising and Photography, and received an Associates in Business.
I took two years off school and photographed on the side, while working at a full time real-estate office, where I photographed and managed social media, website and other online ‘things.’
But I got bored.
So in Fall of 2015 I went back to school at Kendall College Art and Design and started my Double Masters, one being in Fine Art Photography (MFA), and the other being in Visual and Critical Studies (MA). I graduated in May of 2018 with both degrees and now do full time photography as well as I teach at Grand Valley State University and Kendall College of Art and Design.

    So much more than a wedding photographer

    Paige shot our wedding in November of 2019 but she did so much more than that.

    Her professionalism is unmatched. She made us, our party and family feel comfortable throughout the entire day. I was actually waiting for her to show up the day-of because I knew her experience and steady attitude would calm my nerves, and they did.

    She captured so many special moments throughout the day. Even when our bus got stuck on a curb on the way to take us to the reception 😝. I’ll forever look back on our memories and remember how Eric and I felt during every moment.

    She is nothing short of amazing and I’d 20/10 recommend her for photographing your special moments. She’s just so talented ♥️!

    Seriously the absolute best

    I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll start with saying, I’ve had about 5 of our guests tell me they wanted to remarry just to have her photograph their wedding day. Paige is so talented and sweet. Our photos are pictures that I’ll proudly display for the rest of our lives.

    Katy thank you so so so so much for this. Your wedding was so beautiful and I’m so honored I got to meet you and document your special day. ❤️

    Nothing short of spectacular!

    Paige and I once worked a retail job together. We hadn't seen each other for many years but I followed her work on social media. When I got engaged, I knew Paige HAD to be our photographer - we even chose our wedding date based on her availability.

    People ask me all the time what my favorite part of the wedding was and my answer is always "the photos!". By that, I don't just mean the physical images; I mean the experience of working with Paige that day. She took the nerves right out of it and made our whole wedding party feel incredible. Her great sense of humor and creativity made for an exciting and adventurous photo experience.

    I would not change a single thing. Paige was nothing short of spectacular to work with and got our photos back to us in record time. Thank you, Paige, for being such a special part of our big day!

    MORGAN. This was the sweetest review ever. Thank you, to both of you, so much for letting me create some beautiful art and experience your day with you.
