HELLO SUNSHINE! I love LOVE, and I love to celebrate it!
Being a part of your wedding experience is something
I don’t take lightly. I believe it is so incredibly important to capture these precious memories. Everyone has a love story and
it deserves to be documented so it can be treasured for years to
come. I don’t know how to put this into words, but capturing a couple’s love on their wedding day gives me such an indescribable joy. As much fun as it is for me to be a part of the
couple’s special day, I treasure the entire journey I get to spend
with them. I love encouraging them in their love story and spoiling them each step of the way. This is such a monumental
time in their lives and it lays the foundation for many
adventures to come. It’s so beneficial for these moments to be captured and relived. Let me tell your story!
I’m Virginia Ashley but my friends just call me Ashley.
I’m a wedding photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. Although I live in RVA, I travel all over for photography which
is awesome because I LOVE to travel. My best days include
soaking up the sun, dancing in the car, eating Mexican food, and laughing with loved ones. I love exploring new places
and going on fun adventures! Reading a good book is my
favorite. Zumba and Barre are my favorite ways to de-stress. And I secretly believe I’m a mermaid. Okay, maybe that’s not
so secret! I’m a newlywed to my sweet firefighter husband, Justin. We recently adopted our fur baby, Scout, and are in love with her! We love trying new restaurants, dreaming up our next adventures, and watching The Walking Dead.
I love photography and capturing real moments. Weddings are my favorite! I believe in love. I believe in marriage.
I believe in supporting my couples in the decision they’re making and loving on them every step of the way.
Letâ€™s be friends!
Ashley is the BEST photographer. My husband hates getting his photo taken and Ashley made us feel at ease during the whole day. On our wedding day I had a fever, it was cold and windy and rainy. Ashley made portraits a breeze. She was soo cheerful and our photos turned out wonderful. Booking Ashley was the best decision I have ever made for my wedding. She documented the love and joy and you can see/feel that in our photos. Ashley kept me calm during the whole day and made sure everything was perfect. I loved being able to see a few of the photos at our reception. It made all the wind/cold so worth it! My husband’s now requirement for any photos being done is that Ashley does it. She is so flexible and willing to do just about anything! I can not recommend her enough.

INVESTMENT When choosing a wedding photographer, not only do you want someone who will capture your day the way you envision it, but you also want someone who will be in your corner throughout the experience. Over the years Iâ€™ve photographed and been a part of many weddings. When planning my own wedding, I knew photography was going to be our top priority. We chose a photographer who we knew would capture our day how we envisioned it, but would also take care of us. We wanted someone to be a part of our experience. When capturing couples on their big day, I want the same for them! I want to give them beautiful pictures to remind them of this priceless day, yet I want to be an encourager in these special moments! Being a wedding photographer means so much to me. It would be an honor to serve you on your wedding day!

There are no words to describe how absolutely wonderful our experience was working with Ashley. Not only is she an incredible photographer who delivered stunning photos, but she is a kind and thoughtful individual who is willing to support her couples in any way possible. Stephen, our families, and I are highly pleased with quality and quantity of pictures that we have from our engagement session and wedding day. Ashley captured our love, happiness, and excitement in a way that makes me smile every time I look at our pictures. She was open to and encouraging of us sharing our ideas and wants for our pictures, as well as, provided us with her professional guidance. Many of our guests have also shared how polite and professional they felt that Ashley was. Outside of our engagement session and wedding day, Ashely checked in frequently to make sure that we had everything that we needed. When we decided to change our florist fairly close to the wedding, Ashley was the first person that we contacted. We knew that she would recommend someone that she felt would provide us with what we wanted, and we absolutely trusted her. I am grateful to have had the opportunity for Ashely to photograph our wedding and look forward having her document many more life events in the future!
