Tell us a little bit about your business.
Hi! I’m Ashley of Ashley Sara Photography and I’ve been photographing weddings for over six years now! Over the last few years, I really dove headfirst into education, creative shoots, and perfecting my craft. I’ve adapted my approach to capture photographs through a more “storytelling” approach with a mix of timeless and candid moments for my couples. The relationships we build are unmatched and I go into their wedding day as a friend that, had they not booked me as their wedding photographer, I may or may not have been a bridesmaid!
What makes your work unique?
I think my work speaks for itself. Every one of my clients truly gets to be themselves in front of my lens and the true happiness, laughter, and love shines through my work. So many couples that inquire, answer my contact form question “What is it about my work that speaks to you?” with a very similar description! I make my clients feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin and showcase what makes THEIR love story special. Everyone deserves that. Everyone’s relationship is unique and I want to not only preserve the memories, but highlight that love that made my couples fall in love in the first place.
What is your ideal client like?
Honestly, my ideal client is someone that sees me as a friend. Someone that wants to build a relationship outside of the wedding planning tasks, makes sure I’m fed on their wedding day, and has a respect for our creativity and craft and makes photography a priority on their wedding day. Also – FLOWERS. Couples that invest in floral installs will become my best friends. Arches, tablescapes, dramatic bouquets – you name it; I am obsessed with photographing it.
What is your approach to photography?
My approach to photography is to learn about my couples’ relationships before they step in front of my lens. I want to know how the first date went, the most embarrassing moments, the pain they share, the happiness, the messy, and the beautiful. I use their real life experiences, their stories, and their memories they shared together in my photography. That’s how I get the belly laughs, the wrinkly nose smiles, the tears, and intimate moments – by making each session special and built around my couples.
