I Believe in memories and moments and all the tiny unforgettable things that happen in between. I dance too long, Smile too much, and have more than enough stories. my clients love me because I make them feel comfortable, but trust me because I know trust is earned, and I work like hell to earn it. most of all, I honestly, furiously love what I do.
All the heart eyes!!!! The Romance, the love, the details, and all the sweet moments in between. I can't wait to be a part of it and to help guide you through the day and keep you on track as you focus on taking it all in.
Portrait or In-home Newborn Sessions. I want to capture it all!!!! This type of session should be authentic and relaxed and should be a reflection of your lifestyle and family. I love to capture real moments as your life expands and progresses - to adorn the walls, digital, or otherwise.
Engagement Sessions or frolicking in nature for no reason at all. I want you!!!! I love to capture raw, candid moments that evoke real feelings between my couples. This is a season of joy and I intend to capture just that.
OH HEY GIRL
Hi, I'm Ashley Upchurch an Atlanta born and based Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer. Photography found me two years ago, (hello 2017!!), and I learned that it's never too late to follow your dreams.
I am dating the absolute sweetest man that God ever created, who believes in me more than I do myself sometimes. Being an only child was good for me; it allowed me to gain interest in meeting new people and creating lasting friendships. I recently became a puppy-mom to my Mini-Goldendoodle Oliver: "Ollie" for short. If I am not photographing a wedding or an adventurous couple/sweet little family you can find me out and about with friends (or let's be honest- EDITING), and nothing excites me more than travel. I am absolutely in awe of the fact that this is my full-time job and consider myself honored that my sweet clients have full trust in me to capture their special day, engagement sessions, and precious families.
My approach to photography is anything but traditional. I would have to say my style is just a bit moody, very camera-unaware, and to me, a perfect photograph can be far from perfect or perfectly posed. I love the wind-blown hair, an impromptu dance, and I don’t shy away from chaos. I do not believe in "posing" but I do believe in capturing raw emotion and candid moments that tell the story of my couples and families. My goal is to make each couple feel comfortable and relaxed so that I can capture the most natural, genuine photos possible. I want your wedding photos to evoke pure emotion and love for one another, capturing memories that you will cherish forever.
I care deeply about my work, your experience, and the images I capture. If what you see and who I am speaking to you, send me a note and let's connect! - xoxo, Ashley
