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.

    I could write all day about this photographer. From the experience to the quality of the product, 5 stars doesn't do her justice. From the engagement pictures to the wedding day, it was like having the coolest friends to photograph you. My husband isn't normally one to enjoy photos, but he was so comfortable and had such a great time working with her, which made me delighted. She is not just a photographer who can slap some presets on photos, she is an ARTIST! She is beyond talented and with her eye and techniques, creates works of art. I cannot believe how in love with our photos I am. Pictures are what last for generations to come, and I am so glad I trusted her to take ours. You will not be disappointed!

    Paige is an amazing photographer! My fiancé, Zach, and I just had our engagement photos with her and it was so much fun! She really cares about your experience and guides you along the way. She has a great eye for choosing spots to shoot photos and she likes to include artistic ones. When it comes to choosing a photographer you cannot go wrong with this girl!
    Thank you for the spectacular photos Paige! We are excited to do it all again on our wedding day!

    Paige is wonderful, she’s very responsive to emails/FB messages and made our engagement session and wedding day so relaxed and fun. She brought creative props for artistic photos (prism and biodegradable confetti) and the pictures turned out amazing! Her quality of photos are top of the line and somehow we had all our wedding photos back by 2 weeks after the wedding with a cute box and note from Paige. You can tell she loves what she does and I’d recommend her to anyone!
