Over the past 10+ years, I've had the honor of photographing couples and families throughout every milestone of their journey. If there's one thing I could say, it's this: your memories are worth saving.

The feeling of a tiny newborn hand wrapping around your fingers, deep belly laughs with your family in the backyard, wrinkled smiles from beloved grandparents, heartfelt kisses, the first dance on your wedding day, exchanging promises to last a lifetime. These are the moments that deserve to be shared and the stories just waiting to be told

Heartfelt stories of marriage and family across Pennsylvania and beyond.

I believe in letting natural moments unfold effortlessly. The best photos are the ones that you feel completely yourself in front of the lens. You won't find a list of awkward Pinterest poses here, just genuine smiles and the natural joy that comes from being with the ones you love.

As your photographer, it's my honor to support you every step of the way. From engagement, to the wedding day, to documenting your growing family, I aim to be a long-term resource and friend for your family legacy. 

"She was more than a photographer — she provided advice, made recommendations, and offered endless support throughout our wedding planning process."

"When we first met Ashlee for our engagement pictures we felt like we had known her for years. All of the pictures of us laughing were real and not staged because Ashlee’s sessions are so fun!

Captivating images that capture the intentional beauty of your story. It's my heart to create a space where genuine stories truly shine. I believe in the power of remembering moments - from once-in-a-lifetime events to the everyday beauty of life and family. Take a moment to peruse the galleries and start dreaming of your heirloom images soon to be crafted. 

Hey there! I'm Ashlee, a Central PA wedding and family photographer wholeheartedly dedicated to telling genuine stories. My mission is to create images that evoke the feeling of being in the moment - the kind of memories you'll want to relive again and again.

Growing up, I've always had a deep love for photography. Most of our family photos were on film slide trays (and many still are) but reliving a moment in time always drew me in. There's something truly special about freezing a moment in time to preserve for the next generation. Imagine curling up on the couch with your kids and flipping through the pages of your wedding album together. Picture their childhood photos on display at their own wedding day in the future. Moments like these are near and dear to my heart. Let's get started on sharing your legacy.

what people are saying:

Over these 10 years of documenting weddings and families throughout Pennsylvania and beyond, it's been a great privilege to witness engagements turn into marriages, and marriages turn into growing families. I often hear these words from couples: "When we first met Ashlee for our engagement pictures we felt like we had known her for years." My heart is for every step of your journey.

And you? You're the kind of couple who deeply values marriage. You enjoy being in the moment - comfortable and confident with your spouse-to-be in front of the lens. You're after the real stuff - heartfelt laughter, crinkled smiles, and happy tears. You're ready to create stories and milestones through photos for your children to look back on and remember. You realize how fast time flies and how quickly your newborn turns into a teenager. Consider this my heartfelt invitation to tell your story.
