In February Brian and I spent a few days in the Upper Peninsula visiting friends, hiking, relaxing and enjoying the dogsled races. Being in Northern Michigan is something that we will never tire of. It is everything. The beautiful trails. The forests of pine. Gorgeous sunsets over Lake Superior. It is about how life is lived. That nature is always out your back door. It is place that Brian and I adore. A place we have fallen head over heels in love with. Life is oh so good when you cross that Mackinac Bridge.

Hello, I'm Ashley. This is my story and these are my photographs. I am a girl who loves life and feel very blessed to share it with those around me.
I was born and raised in a home full of love and life and spent my childhood swimming in our lake and exploring the woods. In high school I fell in love and a few years later married my husband Brian.
I began taking photographs when we traveled to northern Michigan – of trees and rocks. And then began taking other people’s pictures. I have been photographing weddings and people since two thousand and nine. I am a photographer because it bring me joy.
I feel honored to step into a couple wedding day and share their story through my photographs. I love moments that inspire the heart and I like to take pictures that are full of life and emotion.
My life outside photography? Brian and I live in a little house that we have slowly turned into our own. We share our life with two dogs, a few kitty cats, two goats, and a backyard full of chickens and ducks. We have a vegetable garden. And fruit beds. I am a lover of nature. And feel life is best lived outside. I can be found scouring antique markets and estate sales for vintage pieces. Or curling up on our porch swing with a book and glass of tea. I believe that life is beautiful. Together Brian and I are happy. Just two people in love.
