Dear Sweet Bride,
Welcome to Ashton Smith Photography. I hope you find a kindred spirit here. Your dreams and visions for your wedding day are so highly valued. I want to help you bring them to life and capture them in a way that you treasure them forever! I'm talking prints all over the walls, full photo albums, and very full hearts.
I'm fortunate to meet so many incredible clients and can't wait to get to know you. The goal of this guide is to help you plan your wedding day and allow me to provide you with the best experience possible.
Take a look through this guide and please contact me with all your questions. I can't wait to talk some more and watch your vision unfold.
What to expect
I strive to create images that are filled with subtle tones and striking details. My images take on bright tones, and a natural look that will take you right back to that perfect moment where you started a new chapter of your life. My favorite images are the ones filled with emotions.
Congratulations to my newly engaged friends! This is such an exciting time in your lives as you start to plan for the best day ever. I cannot wait to meet you!
Engagement sessions are the perfect start for couples & photographers. They are a crucial part of the engagement season in preparation for your upcoming wedding. Engagement sessions allow us to get to know each other. It allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera, understand how I shoot, & know my style.
My approach to engagement photography is natural, playful, with gentle directions. I seek to capture the true emotions & connections between the two of you.
Please contact me so we can talk about what's especially important to you for engagement photos & how I can help make that happen.
All wedding packages include a free engagement sessions, however you do not have to book a wedding in order to book an engagement shoot. In fact, if you book an engagement shoot and later decide to book a wedding, your payment will be fully applied to your wedding package total.
Bridal Portraits are a great way to make sure to get all the pictures of you before the wedding day to give yourself more time with your loved ones. The best time to schedule this session is with a hair & makeup trial run. That way you get to try out the wedding look and get some extra portraits in your beautiful dress!
**additional costs apply**
Schedule an anniversary shoot with your wedding package and secure current prices for next year. this is one of my favorites!!! I love being able to reconnect with my peeps and see how the first year of marriage has changed you and brought you closer!
