My name is Ashley

…and I’m so glad you’re here! I am a Wilmington & Raleigh NC-based wedding and portrait photographer! I’m a big fan of the little moments of joy – the nose crinkles and the giggles, the first time that your best friend sees you all dressed up and ready to walk down the aisle, the kisses on the cheek. I know how it feels to be in front of a camera and feel awkward and uncomfortable – that’s why I focus on capturing the natural and genuine moments. When you look at your photos in 30 years – I want you to remember the sweet thing that your love whispered in your ear, the joke that you were laughing about, exactly what you were feeling in that moment.

explore weddings

… for how you felt and not for how you were posed
…for the joy of saying I do, and not for the stress of wedding planning
…for the romantic moments and heartfelt good wishes 

Your wedding will bring some of the most transformational moments of your life, moments so important that they can never be recreated…

But they can be relived in exquisite detail.

Savor the moments you can never get back 

your day was meant to be remembered
