Experience

the Ashley Holstein

An experience with intentionality, heart and care.

"Every time I look at my pictures,
I relive my perfect day."

Michelle & chase

If you’re looking for a passionate and professional photographer, look no further. Ashley photographed my wedding and every time I look at my pictures, I relive my perfect day. She is professional yet fun. She is the real deal!

Sydney + Jacob

"It's magical how she captured the essence of our relationship."

Before booking her officially, she takes the time to get to know you so that she can make the most out of your experience. She is knowledgeable in all areas of photography and wedding details, flexible (especially during this time dealing with COVID-19), always available to help, and overall one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. 

With a fine art photojournalistic approach to photography, images are soft, personal and quiet. I embrace the raw emotions and vulnerability that life brings and use that as my creative energy. I love getting to know my client’s personalities and working towards bringing them out in my images. Wedding photography is about heartfelt images that can be passed down from generation to generation. It's your legacy.

Please take your time to browse the galleries. I encourage having fun, trying new perspectives, and collaboration. Together we can make an album for you to remember, relive and share how you felt on your wedding day.

**Now taking bookings up to October 2021.
Bookings past that date will open in January**

Kenzie & Preston

"Ashley is a joy to work with!"

She is beyond talented and delivers beautiful images every time we have worked with her.

where are you based out of?

Depends, where do you want to take me? I'm based in Nashville but will travel anywhere to document your love story.

How much does it cost to travel to our wedding?

It's actually more affordable than you think (hello Southwest points!). If your wedding is further than 40 miles Nashville, just ask for a travel quote when you contact me.

How do I book you?

Easy! Send me an email to see if your wedding date is still available. If it is, you'll pick a wedding collection that fits your photography needs, sign the agreement & pay the deposit retainer of $600.

We are awkward in front of the camera, will you pose us?

I wont be forcing you to smile for every photo. My favorite photos are candid moments, the ones that unfold. I will guide you into those meaningful moments and give you space to forget I'm even there.

Have you ever cancelled a booking or not shown up to a wedding?

Never! And I plan on keeping it that way. If for some reason I really could not shoot your wedding for what ever reason, I do have a backup plan for that situation.

How much is the deposit to book?

The $600 retainer holds the date for your booking and it is due as soon as you make your final decision.

Do you shoot with a second photographer? Or do you ever have an assistant?

It depends on the size and complexity of the wedding. A second shooter is available for most weddings at a separate fee.
I sometimes use an assistant, I will notify you before bringing anyone to your wedding.

When will I receive my photographs?

You will expect to receive your gallery around 4-6 weeks after the wedding. I send out the photo package containing your images to mailing address usually 2 weeks after that. If you have ordered an album, it will take up to 3 weeks for printing.

What do we receive?

You will receive the images that have been carefully crafted & edited (anywhere from 300-1000 images). The photos will be sized for print, so you can print your photos as many times as you like. They will also be resized for social media to share as soon as you get them.
All the images come on a custom wooden USB drive, with 10 fine art prints in a beautiful box!
If you have ordered an Album, I will design the album and custom cover. It can be ready just weeks after you receive your photos.
