I'm Ashton! I am a hopeless romantic, recently wed to my college sweetheart. My love for photography started at an early age, following me through university and three years in management before going full time as a photographer. I launched my business in September of 2011, booking 20 weddings in my first year. This industry has welcomed me with open arms, and I have fallen into a mad love affair with weddings. I am originally from Clay, WV, but relocated to Baltimore, MD in March of 2014. I LOVE living here as much as my new husband, who grew up nearby. I'm just a small town girl in the city, telling love stories with a camera.
My road to photography started in 5th grade when I was introduced to an organization known as 4H. I was a student at Ivydale Elementary near Clay, WV which was a small town with few outlets for fun. I jumped to get involved, picking photography as my focus and running for club president. I was so excited, but it all soon came to a halt when I was told that I would be leaving Ivydale to transfer to Clay Elementary. It was too late to join 4H by the time I got settled, and so.. I developed an independent love for photography. My parents surprised me in my Sophomore year of high school with a Nikon N65 which I would take with me everywhere from then forward.
My college years consisted of juggling my love for art and focusing on my education. My business courses would soon take priority and I would spend about three years taking photos exclusively on my Motorola Razr. It was not until 2011, during an ugly break-up, that I would reconnect with photography. In September of that year, I started taking photos with a Nikon D5100 and a kit lens and before I knew it, I was leaving my retail management position to pursue weddings full time. Now, five years later, I have shot nearly 100 weddings and I can't imagine a life doing anything else! I am so lucky to do what I love.
