A Little About Ash
Photography has always had a special place in my heart. Since high school days spent in the darkroom developing negatives, I’ve been fascinated by the power of photos to tell a story. How an image can transport you back to a place, a moment, a feeling or a thought. Photography became a way to express myself and communicate through images, and along the way I fell in love with photographing people and the connection we have to each other. When I photographed my first wedding I knew I had found my dream job.
Though I love roaming the world with my camera and exploring new places, my favourite place is at home with my partner, Dan, curled up on the couch with our two kitties. My heart is happiest when I’m surrounded by nature and animals, or relaxing with friends, family and good food.
I’m amazed by the privilege I have of being welcomed into the lives and precious moments of my couples. That I’m able document these beautiful stories and pour my heart and soul into something they can keep forever. It’s pretty incredible.
What is it like to have me with you on the day?
Your wedding is an intimate, personal day, full of real emotions and special moments. Documenting your story with natural, honest and creative images is important to me, and it's what I feel so honoured and lucky to do. My goal is to capture what your day really feels like.
Capturing the big moments is important of course, but I also focus on the ones in between, the fleeting, special ones and the real, beautiful details.
I'm a relaxed, easy-going person and my approach to shooting is calming, lighthearted and natural. Most of the time you'll forget I'm there, I’ll blend in with your guests, I'll get to know your friends and family and we’ll chat and have fun while I document your day and capture all the real moments as they happen.
At the end of our time together you will have a collection of honest, intimate and beautiful images that tell the story of your day. Something you can treasure and share with friends and family for generations.
What next? Well, let's get to know each other. I like to connect, find out what inspires you and make sure we're a great fit. This usually involves us meeting if you’re based in Brisbane, or over Skype if you’re elsewhere. We’ll share a drink, chat through details and usually laugh a whole lot. Get in touch. Tell me your story, I'd love to know about yourselves and your plans. Ask me anything, I'll answer all your questions.
