Hi! My Name is Ashley and I am a professional photographer based out of Santa Barbara, California. I truly enjoy learning about you, your business, or your event so that I can effectively communicate your story through my photography.

I am passionate about creating high quality photos that will leave you smiling. I like to keep things light & fun and stay in the background as much as possible so I can capture the uninterrupted moments that you will cherish forever.

“Ashley did a fabulous job shooting the Mr. America Event. Her photos were high quality and professional and I highly recommend her for your event!”
Julie Space, Chief Creative Officer at Mindset Masters Marketing Agency
“I have had Ashley photograph so many huge moments in my life including my wedding, family photos, and my first aerial arts competition. She is not only as professional as they come, but she has an artistic eye. She can capture some of the most candid shots and will give a completely unique perspective to any event. She is most definitely passionate about what she does and will exceed expectations every time. She has my highest recommendation.”
Jennifer Wilkins, Owner of Cirque Asylum

I also love to travel and my enthusiasm for photography lies in sharing my experiences with others. I have a bucket list of 101 things I would like to do and I document my travels through photography and writing. I live on a ranch where I love to have my morning coffee before work. I often take breaks in my garden, or play fetch with my pom, Chewy. I am passionate about fitness, family, animals, nature and learning. I have been in the Santa Barbara area on and off for almost 10 years. When I graduated UCSB, I decided to focus on a career in photography and online marketing.

Thank you for taking the time to consider me as your photographer and I hope you have a wonderful day!
