Hello, I'm Ashley. I am a family, wedding, engagement and corporate event photographer based in my hometown of Arlington Heights. My adventure with photography began at the age of 6 when I found a disposable camera in my parents' kitchen drawer. I love to travel, explore old antique shops for vintage cameras, hike and enjoy a good cup of coffee!
My work is a mixture of classic and photojournalistic with a focus on candid moments and creating an invaluable connection with each and every client. It's my passion to capture your family portraits and weddings in a way that tells your story. I'm a proud member of the PPA, NAPCP, and offer military discounts. Let's meet for coffee (or tea) and chat! Click on the contact page or contact me directly at email@example.com.

Captured the intimacy and playfulness of our special day!
Ashley is a dream partner to work with. From the first moment she was engaging, easily reachable and very relaxed - there was never any confusion about her pricing or availability, and she was flexible with me while I tried to coordinate a small wedding from abroad.Sent on 07/02/2019
The weeks before the wedding she would check in and ask me what I needed, and she was super punctual the day of. I really cannot express how much her presence was a gift on my big day - she kept me calm and was aware of so many details that were missed (like reminding my sister to take her watch off for pictures or picking lint or a stray hair off a shoulder), and none of the pictures we ended up with looked forced or staged.
Her style is very organic - this meant that I could keep my introverted groom focused on me and our day without him feeling on-the-spot or uncomfortable. Normally he can be quite stiff for pictures - but her photos really captured the man I fell in love with and the love we share.
If you are looking for joyful, organic photos that will tell the story of your day and the people that you love, Ashley would be my #1 recommendation. I will always be grateful for the pictures she took for us and how honestly they capture the love that was shared on our special day.

The best decision ever!!
Ashley was hands down the best wedding vendor decision we made in every way possible. Not only is she incredibly talented, friendly, and always available, but she went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect. We FaceTimed so many times leading up to the wedding and she made it seem as though I was always her top priority. She even FaceTimed with me on a Friday night and reached out to nearly all of her florist contacts to help me find someone after I unexpectedly had to cancel my contract with my previous florist. Needless to say, Ashley was more than just my photographer, but was a friend/therapist through the entire process and I could not have done it without her.Sent on 01/11/2019
The day of the wedding, Ashley was organized and commanded the whole group to make sure we stayed on schedule. The entire wedding party and all of the parents loved her and she was joyful to be around the whole day. Also, I have been to several weddings where all you notice is the photographer snapping pictures, but somehow she managed to be discreet and blend in with the wedding- and still get all of the pictures!
Having my wedding in December, my biggest fear was what the weather was going to be like and how to prepare for it. In true friend fashion, Ashley helped me pick out the “just in case umbrellas” and drove around town the day before the wedding looking for all the potential photo locations. Of course it poured the day of, but we made the most of it and the umbrella pictures are some of my favorites!
Every single picture turned out absolutely amazing. I have gotten SO many compliments, and several people have told me they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen. Not only will she perfectly capture your day and give amazing memories, but she will overall make your day better. I could go on and on about why you should choose Ashley for your wedding or next event, but just trust me and do it!

Ashley was recently the photographer for my brother's wedding, and I can't wait to have her photograph my own wedding next year! She is thoughtful, incredibly sweet, thorough, timely, communicative, and not to mention crazy talented. All of the pictures are absolutely stunning. She & her team captured all of the most perfect moments for our family & friends, and made everyone feel comfortable as she did. I've recommended her to all of my friends and family looking for a photographer!Sent on 08/18/2017
