MEET ASHLEY STEFFENS
Love. Laugher. Raw emotion. Thats what I live for. I love being a photographer because I get to capture moments in time, human connection and nature. I was introduced to photography by my mom who was also a photographer, so it has been a life long passion of mine. My heart beats a little faster with a camera in my hand. I live to see true emotional connection come to life in a photo that will be passed down for generations.
I am a Film School graduate and creative arts junkie. Outside of photography, I fill my time with throwing pottery, coffee with my girl squad, and loving on my Goldendoodle pup, Finnegan… who I am obsessed with.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
“Ashley was wonderful! She helped our big day feel so warm and loving. In the midst of all the nerves and excitement, Ashley helped keep me calm. She truly cares not only about the quality of the photos she takes, but also about making sure you feel beautiful and loved.”
“Ashley did both our engagement photos and wedding day photos, and she did an excellent job!! Being a photographer myself, I was very picky about who to hire as our photographer. But when I came across Ashley’s work, I was blown away by the look and feel of her photos. They really capture the essence of us as a couple and the way she uses natural light is perfect. I think one of the things that stuck out the most about her photos was that they did not have that typical wedding stock photo look that a lot of wedding photographers have. Her photos are more organic and warm and have more character to them, which is what drew me to pick her as our photographer. Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day beautifully!”
“Ashley was great to work with from start to finish. We initially booked her for an October wedding and then ended up moving our wedding all the way up to May and she happily worked with us on switching the contract over. On the wedding day she arrived early and immediately felt like a friend. My husband and I are both mega introverts and we freeze in front of cameras, but for some reason with Ashley both of us felt relaxed and comfortable just being ourselves. My whole family has told me that they just loved working with Ashley that day. And that’s not even mentioning the actual work she does which is jaw-dropping! She got our gallery to us early and it was somehow even more beautiful than we expected. Ashley has a very artistic and unique eye that most wedding photographers I looked into just didn’t have. Every shot looks effortless and ethereal, nothing appears uncomfortable or posed. I’m so very grateful that Ashley was there on my special day so that each beautiful moment was perfectly captured and we can look back on them forever. “
