Hi, I’m Ashlee. Welcome to this beautiful place called Colorado that I am blessed to call home. There is beauty in being yourself and there is a wildness that this area has to offer that’s like no other. I adore the relaxed and inviting feel of an outdoor wedding. The natural light and outdoor venue provides a perfect combination to enjoy what I am most grateful for, living and loving the adventures of life in the mountains. Most of my destination weddings take me somewhere in the Rocky mountains of Colorado, but shooting destination weddings has taken me to the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico and beyond. My passport is always ready and I am available for destination wedding photography both internationally and stateside.

Your wedding day is a chance to celebrate, play, laugh and enjoy each other and the people closest to you in a place that means something to you. Based in the Rocky Mountains of Southern Colorado near Wolf Creek ski area, I am a mountain-loving adventurer who aims to shoot real pictures for real people who are looking to connect with a story-teller to showcase their day in an intimate, bold and beautiful way that’s tailored to their personal style.

Whether it’s a wedding or elopement with traditional ties at the Rio Grande Club & Resort with hundreds of party-ready friends enjoying the mountain views, an intimate elopement ceremony tucked below the cliffs by the river at the Arbor House Inn Bed & Breakfast, or nuptials between just the two of you atop a cliff amid the aspens of the Rio Grande National Forest–this day is yours. I am just a girl with over eight years and 150+ weddings and elopements under my wedding belt who loves telling stories through my lens, and I’m ready to go play behind the camera. I love to draw out (or lovingly heckle) the type of candid portraits, creative poses, snuggles and grins that make you, well, you! You have a love story to tell and this particular Colorado photographer is looking for the real moments that matter and mean the most.

I’d love to connect with you and hear about your upcoming day. For starters, sign up to receive FREE tips on what to expect on your wedding day. Call or e-mail to find out more today!

The Stories Behind the Photos – Black & Wednesdays

Bloggity Blog Blog

Welcome to the stories behind the stories. I enjoy the stories behind the photos. From time to time I will share snapshots and a sneak peek “behind the scenes,” if you will. There is just something so moving and spectacularly fascinating about the clarity and simplicity of black and white photos.

A while back I was issued a B&W photography challenge via social media that sparked the idea for the Black & Wednesday blog. This gave me an excuse find some of my favorites and ponder exactly what it is I love about photography…and thus “Black & Wednesdays” was born.

As a continuation of that challenge and my love of all things black & white, welcome to Black & Wednesdays. I enjoy letting loose on the blog world some things I love in black and white, perhaps with a little snippet of the back story. Photos certainly tell a story. Sometimes it’s fun to hear the stories behind the story. Let the bloggity blog blog and story telling begin!
