Isn’t Ashley GORGEOUS? She’s also an all-around wonderful person. I had the pleasure of meeting her last fall (see if you can spot her as one of Wendy’s bridesmaids, HERE). Since then, she’s been planning a wedding of her own! Unfortunately, due to Covid, Ashley has had to postpone her own wedding twice. She’s handled it all with grace, and Ashley and her fiancé even adopted a puppy, so I’d say it was worth it.
So how did this shoot come to be? Back in the spring, I announced that I wanted to gift a bridal session to a bride-to-be, whose wedding plans had been affected by the pandemic. Ashley entered the giveaway, and I was so excited when I (randomly) pulled her name. Fast forward a few months, and it was an absolute joy!
I had the opportunity to work alongside other amazing vendors, who generously offered their time and talents to help me celebrate Ashley. I should also mention that Ashley’s given me permission to share these photos ahead of her wedding next year, since her fiancé’s not a big social media guy. I haven’t tagged her in any posts, though, just to be safe! Wouldn’t want him to sneak a peek of this beautiful dress. Enjoy my favorites!

She was warm and welcoming, and made us feel like we knew what we were doing. At our wedding, Paige was the biggest blessing. My gosh, are our photos beautiful. I can't thank her enough. They are everything we could have wanted!"
"Paige is so kind and helpful. She answered any questions I had leading up to my wedding in a timely fashion and she gave great tips for preparing for photos. I was able to focus on each moment and let Paige do her thing! Paige made me feel so comfortable. The photos we've gotten back are just gorgeous. Paige is professional, kind, and amazing at her job!"
"Paige is amazing! If you're considering her as your photographer, you will not regret it. As soon as we talked to Paige, we knew she was perfect! She was well-organized and made us feel so comfortable. She was such a trooper throughout the day, keeping it light and fun through the portrait process. Our photos are absolutely stunning. We'll cherish them for the rest of our lives!"
"Paige was our wedding and engagement photographer, and both experiences were fantastic! Paige is such a warm and welcoming person that my husband and I felt at ease in front of the camera. She's totally down-to-earth and so fun to work with. She photographed our wedding day so beautifully and made sure to capture every detail... We will treasure the images forever!"
"I can't even begin to explain how amazing Paige was when she shot our wedding! She knew exactly what to do to make my husband and I feel like our best selves, and her photos captured our love perfectly! Paige is so professional and essentially kept everything running smoothly before our ceremony began. Not to mention, her photos are the most beautiful I've seen!"
