Over the last few months, I have had the extreme pleasure of working on multiple projects with Jess Albins Events. We have hosted an open house for Haven Street Ballroom, multiple styled shoots, and some social events. It’s been a BLAST of creativity in the wedding off season. If you’re looking for a planner and/or epic installations for your upcoming affair-Jess is your girl.

During all of this collaboration, we came up with many ideas. Some we have had a chance to execute and others are coming soon! One concept we couldn’t wait on was the AKP + JAE Pop-Up Portrait experience. I sure hope you came here to learn more about these today, because I am beyond excited to share!


ONE | AKP + JAE is Ashton Kelley Photography plus Jess Albins Events. We’ve teamed together to bring you monthly styled sessions that will be sure to slow your follower’s scroll. We believe that you are a huge part of your business, and we want to make it fun for you to step out into the front of it. These mini sessions serve as quick opportunities to update your headshots, seasonal profile, or milestone moment. From a romantic couple’s session to building your brand-you’re going to love what’s created.

TWO | Each month has a completely new and fresh theme. Choosing a different location for each pop-up allows us to have a new canvas to work with. This keeps content ever-changing, always fresh, and conceptually intriguing. In the past we have done an all white balloon room, highlighted Baltimore’s colorful murals, created a chic work space, and more!

THREE | These sessions serve a ton of purposes! You can celebrate a new engagement or a treasured anniversary. This is perfect for updating your headshots, shooting outfits for your blog, hyping up your birthday, or for photos with your dog. Did ya like that little rhyme there?

FOUR | Once your session is over, you’re going to be excited. I get it. If I looked like you, I’d be excited to see my photos too! Don’t worry. Photos are done within a week of your session. Delivered in an online gallery, you’ll have immediate access to download and share once they land in your inbox.

FIVE | We started a VIP group for our clients. This will allow us to stay in touch and give you insider tips. From our favorite apps to social media tricks, we’re going to be sharing it all. Talk about a bonus!


Our next AKP + JAE Pop Up is on April 28, 2019. We will host the day at Haven Street Ballroom. Session will be available in 20 minute intervals from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Look one will be a colorful, confetti inspired scene near the epic White Coffee Creative Co. “Celebrate” mural. The second look will feature Vintage Views Bar and interactive bubbly. This contrast of neutral versus color provides the perfect balance for Spring content!
