Upon receiving her first Nikon film camera, Nikon N60, a love affair in visual form began.

Ashley's passion for photography developed within the world of photojournalism as Photo Editor in high school then in college, and as an intern in 2000 for Reuters News Service at the National Republican and Democratic Conventions followed by the Inauguration.

Ashley graduated from Bowling Green State University with a B.S. in Visual Communication Technology (focus: photography), minors in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Ashley pursues her love of photography shooting weddings and lifestyle sessions as a means to love and serve others.


Integrity, community and grace in pursuit of growth.

Words to live by.  Ashley cherishes each of these values individually but finds them most powerful together.  

Ashley and her husband, Ryan, are followers of Jesus and look for ways to live that daily with their two daughters, two dogs and one chicken just outside of Akron, Ohio.  Ashley loves whole-food meals, red wine, dark chocolate and books.  On a free weekend Ashley and Ryan enjoy bike rides in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, fireside chats with friends, sneaking in a romantic date night or an adventure getaway.  Our upcoming trip we fly into Spokane, WA to visit Ashley's "little" brother, an Idaho Vandal, and then possibly driving up to Glacier National Park...still exploring options!
