Summer Engagement Session

I met Peter and Shannon at BrewDog in Franklinton for our first meeting and we immediately bonded over their giant pretzel with beer cheese. It’s amazing and so are Shannon and Peter!! They met at OSU and are self proclaimed foodies. They enjoy trying new restaurants in different cities, so much so, they have a running list of all the places saved in their Notes. Very efficient! I knew then we would be a great match for their wedding day. Haha!

For their engagement session, we visited spots in German Village that had special meaning to them. This is one of my FAVORITE things!! We chat about each spot and they relive some of those moments, all while taking beautiful photos. We started out at The Book Loft, ventured the surrounding neighborhoods, and on to Schmidt’s Sausage Haus. YUM! We ended at The Ohio State University oval, Mirror Lake, and Facility Center.

Peter and Shannon, I cannot wait to spend your June wedding day together!!

- Emilee, bride

"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!"
