Minnesota elopement       wedding photographer


you're probably the type to get lost in the woods, unwind at the lake, or snuggle up with your love by a fire.

You want your elopement or intimate wedding to represent the things you value in life, the places you enjoy, and the love that brought you two together.  Large wedding parties, busy city streets, crammed timelines, and traditional aren't really your thing.  You want a day that represents you, full of sentiment, the outdoors, connection, and quality time with each other (and maybe a few loved ones).  You just need someone to come alongside you, make sure that the experience is free of stress, and preserve it for you to cherish for years to come.

I'm more than a photographer...I'm also your coordinator, location guide, and supportive friend.

At the end of the day, you're going to get married to the love of your life no matter what happens or where you are. 
Remember what this day means at the core, and allow me to guide, plan, and help you.  We will create an experience together that honors your story and the legacy that you'll pass down to future generations.

This is your history being written.

my philosophy

After the loss of close loved ones, including my mom to brain cancer,  I became very aware of just how priceless a photo of a memory can be.  They have this incredible ability to bring you right back to the long hugs, the spontaneous ideas, crazy adventures, big milestones, and the little glimpses of real, everyday life that you don't ever want to forget.  
This is why my main focus is on storytelling and a documentary approach to how I shoot, along with a good dose of direction mixed in (because I don't want you to ever feel awkward).   I've grown my artistic style to maintain purpose, honesty, sentiment, heart, soul, and all the things that matter most to those I work with.  I then weave your story together into a visual piece of art for you to hold onto and appreciate for years to come.   

“I couldn't have dreamed of a better photographer to work with for our wedding weekend!”

Ashley was everything we had hoped for and more. She added a certain level of ease both during the planning process and day-of, resulting in a fun, stress-free weekend with our friends and family. Every time I look at our wedding photos, my heart fills with joy and gratitude for such a wonderful experience.  Let this be your sign to work with her. She's absolutely amazing!

"Seriously the most thoughtful and detail-oriented wedding photographer we could’ve asked for!"

From navigating engagement photos, wedding planning (and replanning thanks to covid), Ashley was so communicative, patient, and accommodating through it all! Her photos captured so many wonderful memories of our wedding day, and each single shot was so artfully done. I could not recommend her enough!

— Annie & Luke
