Timeless Storytelling for the joyful heart
I am more than a wedding photographer, I will make sure your dress is laying just right, that you and your person are relaxed + enjoying your day. I make sure your day runs smoothly and will be there to help you feel grounded. I take care of the details so you don't have to!
This day is for you and your person to celebrate who you are as a couple + that will be my focus. All of the love, candid memories, intimate moments and everything in between - we will laugh, I will cry + most definitely boogie on the dance floor!

1. Say Hello

You and your person have talked through + decided you want me to photograph your wedding day. YAY!!! I will email to confirm details + confirm your photography package. You will receive a contract + will pay a 30% retainer to secure your wedding date with me. Once you have officially booked we can schedule your engagement session + work on your timeline!
3. Planning Your Day
Your day is quickly approaching! I will reach out with a questionnaire to get all the details for your wedding day (family picture list, wedding party details etc).
We will also finalize your timeline + gush over your engagement photos! I will connect with the other vendors you have booked to make sure your day runs seamlessly (and with me on your side it will!).

Each intentional moment + candid memory will be captured to show your love. I am so honored to be a part of your day!
5. your photographs
You had the best day ever and now you cannot wait to see the photos from your day! Within the first week after your wedding, I will take 10-20 of my favorite images + share them with you as a preview. This will give you a little taste of your day that you can keep between you or share with your family + friends. I will then carefully go through each image, choose the best moments + pour my heart and soul into editing your gallery.
Once the editing is complete (8 weeks after your wedding date) I will upload the images to an online gallery that you can download + print directly onto your computer. Oh and the best part - you can share it with everyone!

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.
