Hey Y'all

I landed in the great scenic city of Chattanooga, Tennessee after a much-too-long 24 years in South Florida. No children, I'm still playing the "always a wedding photographer, never a bride" role, but I have a 4 year old, 60lb. lap dog, and a cat that could pass for a baby cow. I live for good sushi, mocha iced coffee (basic, I know), and can get down with some live music - Nashville is the bees knees, am I right? 

My greatest passion is documenting life and love; I'm a sucker and a hopeless romantic - I promise I'll be crying during your ceremony behind my camera. My father was the photography enthusiast of our family, he just tinkered around with it. I remember the countless trips to Ritz Camera (gosh, I feel old now), and outings to the race track for him to capture those cool abstract, engine closeup-artsy-like photos, yea?

I first picked up photography after becoming bored during multiple rounds of being grounded; true story. I took pictures around the house, mainly flowers, and eventually was allowed out to the beach to practice with my little sister. I'm not sure I would've kept pursuing this hobby (now career) if it weren't for the validation I received from my parents. I had my first 'professional' session in 2009; maternity portraits, and my first wedding in 2014. 

I have had the opportunity to work alongside Gym Class Heroes and their tour photographer, Gary Ventura, and have had the great honor of having two photographs permanently placed on display in our local hospital, Erlanger East. In 2014, I was featured in The Arts Arena Gallery in Delray Beach, Florida for the month of April, and hosted a charity event, Portraits For Orlando, to raise money for victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. My greatest accomplishment, though, is the relationships and the memories that I get to create over the years.

There really isn't one thing that I love to photograph more than the other. For me, it's about the moments that take place during your session that keep me going and craving more. I focus on capturing it all, not just cheesy poses and fake smiles here, folks. I do what I do because time doesn't slow down for anyone, or any thing, but with just a click of a button, I can freeze the moments that take my breath away for a lifetime of visits down memory lane.

Annie Sabic

She's amazing! The shoot was so much fun and she was a blast to be around.

Becca Schultz

Absolutely loved working with Ashli! She did everything we asked and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. So happy I will have these memories from our anniversary trip. 

Chappel Dillingham

Ashli was one of my biggest supporters on my wedding day. She went out of her way to make sure my entire bridal party was comfortable and happy. She was patient and so personable. Ashli is absolutely incredible to work with and delivered beautiful pictures. She captured our wedding day perfectly, and I felt like the pictures really showed mine and my husband's personality and style. I absolutely recommend Ashli to any bride in need of a perfect photographer for their perfect day.

Ashli did our newborn pictures and they turned out amazing!! She's so professional and was able to get so many good pictures of our grumpy baby. We have found a favorite photographer and will continue to use her anytime we need pictures done.

Kerri Scranton

We had out of town guests who were late. She was so pati by and accommodating.

Reece Ikerd

Ashli was very easy to work with! I hired her as a "surprise" photographer and since I didn't know the area too well, she made a couple of suggestions. She made sure to show up early so that she was able to scope out the location, and was even able to help pick out the exact location, which was perfect. She sent a few previews over and they came out perfect! Excited to see the rest. Also very good on price. Definitely recommend!

Sarah Schmidt

Ashli has done the most amazing pictures for me and my family and I recommend her to everyone I know. You will not regret hiring her!

Victoria Pancake

Ashli is a precious angel sent from above. I am so happy I booked her to do our wedding. She was so flexible and easy to work with. My husband usually hates taking pictures, but Ashli made it so stress free that we had so much fun and we got to be our usual goofie selves. The photos are beautiful and we couldn't be happier with them.
