Our Story

Hey there!

We’re Justin and Ashley- Two people who combined their deep passions for marriage (picking each other was the best decision ever!), timeless photography, and helping you look and feel amazing. Are you a couple searching for someone to capture those once in a lifetime milestones? From weddings, to engagements, and “just because” sessions …we’d love to be a part of documenting your story.

Ashley’s passions truly ignited during her years managing a bridal boutique while helping women find the gown of their dreams time and time again. She realized that each time she sent a giddy bride out the door she ached to continue on the journey with them! She decided her skills could be best utilized walking through the entire engagement alongside them and guiding them on their wedding day to look and feel their best behind the camera. Justin’s love of photography began more than fifteen years ago when he began photographing the stars and nature (Alter Ego: Mr. Save the planet), but he quickly realized his photos touched his heart more deeply when people were in them- especially people in love!

When we aren’t behind our cameras or computers making the magic happen, you can find us traveling the globe (Iceland is up next!), volunteering at church, or dancing to old school hip hop while we cook dinner in Tampa, FL.

Vision

 

I believe in finding beauty in simplicity; the essence and emotions of your wedding should be captured with an authentic and natural aesthetic. I believe in a candid approach that allows my clients to be themselves and forget they are being photographed. While trends and styles change, I have a keen awareness of the responsibility I have to present a timeless and tangible set of images that will ultimately become a family heirloom. I believe the strength of photographs lie in their ability to depict truth, so I strive to capture authentic moments with attention to detail, while artfully and faithfully rendering the unique and subtle nuances of your story. Above all, I believe in the beauty of the covenant of marriage. This ideal is shared and so eloquently stated by Southern Weddings Magazine – “I want a marriage even more beautiful than my wedding”.

When I look for an inspiring marriage, I look to this image of my grandparents who have been married for 67 years.
