You're looking for someone to not only capture classic images of your wedding or family, but also someone you can trust to bring out your most authentic self in front of the lens. Let me be the first to say this: you're in the right place. 

I'm Ashlee - photographer, Mexican food aficionado, follower of Jesus, wife, step-mom, and pit-bull lover. Over the past 10 years behind the lens, I've come to know this: the best stories in life aren't the most perfect, they're the ones that are the most real. 

I'm a Central PEnnsylvania Photographer with a heart for every detail of your story.

friend, I'm delighted you're here.

I'm after the kind of images that give space for your genuine story to truly shine.

love, ashlee

Where I Started

Before I went full-time with photography, I was a nurse working in the healthcare field! I love caring for people, and I am so blessed to do so now through the medium of photography. 

What Keeps Me Grounded

My faith in Jesus. I try to approach every session, wedding, and opportunity as a chance to show God's love to those in front of my lens.

What Brings Me Peace

First and foremost, spending daily quiet time with Jesus is something that truly fills my cup. Also, casual walks around my neighborhood alongside my pup, Maizey, or hikes on mountain trails with my family are some of my favorite ways to relax, unwind, and refresh.

"There are not enough words to describe how amazing Ashlee is. She captured our day perfectly and was such a joy to work with, from our engagement session to our wedding day." 

She is so professional in everything she does and her pictures are so beautiful. Ashlee was able to capture every small and big moment of our day - memories we will cherish forever. She made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Also, her turnaround time to deliver our album was just amazing. We cannot wait to use Ashlee for future photos. Thank you so much Ashlee!
