Ok so you just got engaged - whether it was perfectly planned or wildly spontaneous like Jim asked Pam in the pouring rain at a gas station - I want to hear every detail! If you live for the sweet intimate moments, the inside jokes, the countless movie marathons and just love being home with your person, you are in the right place! I am an extroverted introvert who loves making my couples feel connected and comfortable in front of the camera (because who honestly loves their photo being taken).
Authentic moments are what I seek to create timeless + bold imagery that will tell your story. I want you to look back through your wedding day photos and not simply relive your day but remember how you felt in each moment.
So let's plan your perfect day and have a blast creating freaking awesome memories for you and your people to love for years to come.
Hi, I'm Ashley
My husband and I worked with Ashley for our engagement photos and wedding portraits! Ashley makes you feel so comfortable and is easy to talk to! She gives fun prompts and the time we spent felt like quality time as a couple laughing and enjoying each other. The lighting and color on all of our photos was magical, she really captured us beautifully! I love that our photos capture the essence of us as a couple, and the photos look candid rather than overly posed. Highly recommend Ashley as she is kind, responsive, and so talented! We hope we can work with her again to capture our future milestones.
Ashley is amazing in every single way. Not only do we LOVE our photos, but we felt so comfortable during the session and had so much fun. My husband truly does not like photos, but he still talks about how amazing Ashley was and how he wants to make sure she takes our photos when we have kids! If you are looking for someone who is going to make you feel comfortable and capture your genuine smile and real emotions, Ashley is your girl. We can't recommend her enough.
Ashley with Gather and Abide Photography is the BEST!! She truly captures the authentic, small moments, which we really wanted. She included our engagement session into the wedding package that we bought, which was great because it was a great value and it helped us get to know her/feel more comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding day. She is a genuinely kind, caring person who makes you feel special and valued. I'd highly recommend her!!
Ashley is AMAZING. The entire process is seamless, easy and fun. She provides timeless photos that capture each of my family member’s personality while providing a fun and interactive session. I will continue to book her for every season of life as the photos are such treasures - a true artist!
Ashley is easy to communicate with, flexible (even with all the COVID-19 curveballs thrown her way!), and made us feel comfortable during our engagement and wedding shoots. The results are beautiful.
