I AM REALLY
OH HEY GIRL
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.
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.
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.
Hi, I'm Ashley Upchurch a full-time Atlanta born and based Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer. Photography found me three 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 am a dog-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), I drink probably wayyyy too much coffee and love to snack. I am normally in fuzzy socks, some cozy pants and a sweatshirt lounging around the house listening to Petit Biscuit on spotify working at this beautiful dream of mine! I am definitely becoming a homebody since becoming a homeowner (I just love our sweet house, it's so cozy and my favorite place to be), but I will say travel and adventures still excite me. Which leads me to my other hobby, decorating. I love ALL THINGS home decor and am always redoing and rearranging our home, (follow me in my personal insta account here for some inspo) I am absolutely in awe of the fact that this is my 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 emotion-evoking, very camera-unaware, and to me, a perfect photograph can be far from perfect or perfectly posed. I'm not gonna put a big camera in your face and tell you to "fake" smile and I'm dang sure not going to put you in a million (and absolutely awful) prom-like-poses. I love the wind-blown hair, an impromptu dance, and I don’t shy away from any movement. I am going to give you prompts and guide you into doing what you already do and that's to just love each other. I 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 photos to evoke pure emotion and love for one another, capturing memories that you will cherish for like A-GAZILLION-TRILLION years!! Good?!
I care deeply about my work, your experience, and the images I capture. I hope you find a home in these words and want to work together.
If what you see and who I am, speak to you, send me a note and let's connect! - xoxo, Ashley
