it's so nice to meet ya..

*eeeeeekkkk* hi friend, I'm so exctied you're here!! I'm ash, an alberta eloepment & wedding photographer based in Calgary, Alberta. If you're wondering what led this twenty something single girl into shooting elopements & weddings + all kinds of wild love stories, simply put, I just love love. I must preface this with I'm not a cheesy love kind of person (except hallmark movies - they're so bad they're good i swear), which is weird for someone who documents love for a living i know, BUT i believe love is deeper than the cheese we see on the surface, and that's what I live for capturing. I love being a photographer for all you in love couples - i'm literally beaming just thinking about it.

I'm all for the unconventional days that go against the "typical wedding" and are so intentional in their planning. I'm here to document your day in a way that you can reminisce on, get all sentimental, and never have to forget the most important parts. I'm not a photographer for the photos, I'm a photographer for you + your memories. I don't want to say it because it's cheesy butttttt, if you're looking for a photographer that is going to prioritize you, then look no further.

I'm ASh

xo, ash

meet me, your alberta elopement photographer

When I'm not behind the camera, here's a sneak peek into my life:

+ lots of time with my doggie niece, Eleanor
+ Hiking
+ coffee stops
+ traveling when I can
+ working as a kinesiologist/personal trainer
+cycling the summer away



In this area write about what started your journey into photography and what it is you love about it.

You can also write about how you best serve your clients and ensure them that you will go above and beyond to make sure the feel comfortable in front of the leans and that they will love the photos.

“There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!”

What inspires me


Here’s where you can go on a deeper dive into what started your photography journey and why you love it so much – talk about your motivations and purpose, why every shoot is a new experience. 

You can also write about your overall style and personality, what makes you different from all the other photographers they’ve researched. Don’t be shy!

Talk about how your photos will help them relive the day for years and generations to come.

“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”



Uncover your overall approach to the day and an overview of your process. Help them picture what it’s like to have you there on the day and why what you do is so important. Mention how you’ll help them ensure the day flows smoothly, because you’ve had loads of experience at other weddings.   

For example, talk about how you’ll arrive at first light to capture the mother-of-the-bride and the bridal squad helping the bride get ready. Or the groomsmen sneaking a few drinks to calm their nerves. 

Chat about how you’ll turn up after one too many coffees, buzzing with energy to capture one of the most important, memorable days in their lives, and that you won’t miss a moment. 
Write about documenting the getting ready prep through to ceremony, reception and afterparty (if relevant). How you’ll be there in the centre of it all or as a wallflower behind the scenes, photographing moments and details that they might’ve missed (e.g. Aunty Doris getting drunk on the d-floor). Whether you stick to purely candid shots or will pose them for styled shots.

Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat.



Here’s where you can delve further into your favourite things outside of wedding photography – everyone might be able to be a photographer, but there’s little quirks that make you unique – chat about that. 

Maybe you can talk about your favourite hobbies, food, art or leisure activities. What you do to wind down when you’re not shooting – pets, your family, your hometown.

You can also use this opportunity to rehash your love for travelling – a great way for you to subtly remind them that you’re open to shooting destination weddings. 

Remember to wrap up this section by tying it back into wedding photography. For example, “That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favourite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)”

Disney Movies Still Make me Cry. (a one-liner, fun quirk that makes you, you)

You might be wondering what exactly this means or what it has to do with you so let me tell ya. My philosophy is simply put, what I believe in most for my photography + is the influential pillar to how I create, document, and why I do what i do when it comes to my process + your experience working with me.

I believe deeply that photography is meant to document time in a way that you not only remember, but that you actually go back to that exact time and truly feel that moment again. From this belief, my process for your experience and the way that I photograph stems. Firstly, I believe getting to know you + your love and all the little details is vital. This allows me to understand who you are & what's important to you. To document the most significant moments of your day flows from this.

I then photograph in a way that is non-invasive. When I'm at your wedding, I'm not trying to craft a perfect moment or pose, I want to tell the story of your day without influencing it too much. This is the way I am able to find the emotions, the moments, and the people that I know you want documented. From all the little things I do leading up to your day, you don't have to worry because my philosophy is engrained in every aspect of your experience, to make sure you have photos that allow you to step back in time and relive your day, not just remember the fading memories.


My business pillars

If you're just meeting me, you'll quickly get to know that I'm "literally obsessed" with a lot of things. I use this term to describe basically anything I really enjoy because I'm just extra like that. So, let me tell you that I'm literally obsessed with iced coffee, my cutie bernadoodle niece, flannels, lululemon, and basically anything that involves getting out to the mountains. 

When I'm not behind the camera, or at the gym working.. I'm either hanging with my family, getting out to the mountains, binging something on Netflix, or dreaming about trips I want to take one day. I'd say i'm equal parts ambitious + lazy, and I really hope you can relate, otherwise, you might think i'm a little crazy.

Well, welcome to my life. I'm literally obsessed with so much, but most just don't compare with how much I love photographing elopements and weddings. We're not all obsessed with the same things and that's what makes your love story special. I can't believe out of all the fav things in my life, I get to photograph so many incredible love stories + maybe I'll get to photograph yours too!

iced coffee, cute dogs, and wild adventures



Okay, seriously picture this.. you're looking through all your olddddd family albums, looking at the weddings, and the moments, captured from someone's film camera. Someone out there's gotta be with me when I say it's insane how much nostalgia & story is packed into one 4x6 image, decades later. This is what gets me. What I hope my photos to be. For your great great grandchildren to one day flip through a book, filled with your wedding photos and feel how wild, filled with love, and sentimental your day was.

Film feels timeless. It's a form that has lasted generations, and feels like it's told a story without interference. For photos to outlive the moment, and to carry on the story long after it's over.. This is what inspires how I shoot the way that I do, and why I tailor your experience with me the way that I do.

Every time I pack up my gear & get to shoot a new couple, i'm brought new opportunities to create those moments for only you. My focus is creating photographs that mean everything for you. Fostering your story over the time we work together is everything. It's so special, and much bigger than you or I. I love to create art that holds your story for decades is what I wouldn't trade for the world.

the nostalgic feeling of love, on film


My approach for documenting your wedding or elopement is a little unconventional. I'm a little more hands-off and subtle because I don't want to create moments, I only want to photograph the ones that are already happening. I'll keep us on schedule if that's what your day looks like but also create lots of intentional space for you and your loved ones to truly experience everything.

Whether you're spending your day with your closest circle or the just the love of your life, I'll be there as early as you need me to capture all the nervous anticipation and bursting excitement. You bet i'll also stick around as late as your day goes, missing nothing in between. I'll be there for all the moments that mean the most to you on your day.
Oh, and I'll be showing up with my iced coffee + everyone else's drink orders ready to capture your freaking wedding day!

I'll be documenting the whole day with little interference. I'll document you and your loved ones intentionally, capturing the moments that are the most sentimental. From all the talks we'll have had by your big day, I'll understand the people & details that you want documented. You can put aside all your stress and be confident knowing I'm there as long as your day is + I won't miss what's most important to you.

no matter what, i won't miss what's most important

Ash made us feel comfortable, and we were basically laughing for the next two hours. My jaw dropped as I looked at the gallery a couple days later. She was able to capture exactly how Gabe and I feel for each other. 


Ashley is so kind and respectful. She went above and beyond to make us feel special. She was able to take our ideas to the next level and turn our photo dreams into a reality. She made us feel safe and comfortable in front of the camera from the very start.

Emma + Chase

One word... OBSESSED. She truly captured my boyfriend and I the way that we naturally are and brought out our personalities through the photos. You can truly tell that Ashley LOVES what she does and how invested she is in cultivating the best experience for her clients.


We were able to be fully ourselves and not worry if we weren’t posing correctly or looking weird in front of the camera.
