August 27th, 2022 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church + Vue Columbus

Susan and Rafal are two of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. They are genuine, smart, intimate, fun loving and SO caring. Their wedding day was all about each other, celebrating with their families and friends, and supporting small women owned businesses. They brought together an amazing team to make all their wedding dreams come true.

Detail and getting ready photos at Hotel LeVeque were spectacular! Some of my favorites, to date. Their ceremony was at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, which looks like a Scottish Castle, and then we went to Schiller Park for bridal party photos. Schiller Park is the second oldest park in the city and it showed off. The florals and ivy made for a sunny, whimsical, and fun afternoon!

Vue Columbus hosted Susan and Rafal’s reception. It boasts a polished industrial interior and inspiring outdoor patio that overlooks historic buildings and Columbus’ skyline. They have an indoor green space that made for beautiful bridal portraits. It was a pleasure to inspire, capture, and witness their special day!

"Ashley is amazing. We could not have asked for a more personable, professional, kind, hardworking, and fun photographer. We loved every part of the process of working with Ashely—from the meetings to the big day. Her work is phenomenal. She knows how to get the best photos while working well with the clients. I can not recommend Ashely enough. We plan to continue to use her for future photo sessions. "

" I dearly love every one of my couples, and I feel so grateful when they love me back!"

- Jordan, bride

"I don’t even know where to begin with Ashley. She was more than a photographer for me on my wedding day. She was a coordinator, a real life anxiety cure, a hair dresser during pictures & the reception, company that I truly enjoyed for the day, and of course, a wonderful photographer as well. She was with us throughout the whole day with no rush to hurry through anything & always making sure we were okay and getting the pictures we wanted. Joe & I truly do not know what we would’ve done without her on our big day. If you’re getting married, you absolutely have to hire her."

"Company that I truly enjoyed for the day."

- Halle, Bride

"We cannot say enough wonderful things about Ashley and all she did for us for our big day as well as the days that led up to it. She is timely, organized, and goes above and beyond for her couples. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was so efficient throughout the entire day. Ashley is professional while still making her couples feel like friends! We got a 10 photo preview on our WEDDING NIGHT- that was so incredible to have so soon. Thank you, Ashley! The day was perfect with you behind the lens!"
