Explore my story, artistic approach, and envision the experience of having me capture your wedding or brand.

From Elena Ortiz, a December 2022 Bride: "Ashley, we are so overcome with emotion. After viewing the entire gallery, we feel like we lived our wedding day all over again! Some of the shots look like stills straight out of a movie! These are photos that will be shared and cherished for generations. Thank you for your heart and for your talent."

Hello! I’m Ashley. I am a US American artist based between Northern California and Cork in Ireland. I am available for commissions worldwide. My chosen medium is photography with an expertise in weddings. I primarily shoot medium format film, 35mm film, and occasionally digital images. 

My path to becoming a professional photographer has been unique. I have always loved art and I studied art history and cinematography in college while creating photos and artwork as a hobby. Professionally, I earned a degree in psychology, worked and volunteered in healthcare, and was preparing to enter medical school to become an ER doctor when I was offered the chance to shoot a wedding. My work was published, and my photography career took off so quickly that I decided to put med school on hold to pursue my passion for travel and meeting interesting people from all over the world that a career in wedding photography provides. I have found that the skills I developed while preparing for a fast-paced career in medicine translate well to the wedding day, where I am responsible for creating art in real-time under pressure. Of course, I also love helping people achieve images of their wedding they perhaps never imagined were possible. It is very rewarding!

My signature style is a fusion of classic 'old-world' aesthetics, evoking timeless elegance and grandeur, and the cinematic techniques of Hollywood films.
We'll work closely to capture images that reflect my artistic vision and meet your needs. My services are a rare luxury. I am one of very few wedding photographers able to shoot the entire wedding day on film in a way that meets professional standards. 
If you have an eye for art and the timeless look of real film, we could be a perfect match. If your vision for your wedding also includes fashion, travel, or a blending of cultures, we are soul mates. My work is inspired by the classic Americana and English countryside aesthetic of Ralph Lauren ads, as well as the flamboyant, colorful, and intimately cool films of Baz Luhrmann, such as Romeo + Juliet and The Great Gatsby.

My personality style is calm, gentle, and confident. Myself and my team emphasize customer service. I have experience with public-facing clients who require discretion. I am willing to sign non-disclosure agreements and work with future clients who have similar requirements.
My work has won high dollar prize awards and has been published internationally in print and online, including VOGUE, BRIDES, Style Me Pretty (front page), and TATLER to name only a few. 
Notable clients include Gabriela Salazar of La Musa De Las Flores, Mignon Floral Co., Raven Reed Luxury Beauty, Menagerie, Madame Wedding Design; Arianna, the editor of Hey Wedding Lady, and Melissa Sullivan of Le Bloomerie. My NDA clients include actors, film producers, models, designers, physicians, attorneys, writers, teachers, and tech execs.
