Timeless Photos for the Modern Couple
M E E T A S H L E Y
Hello! I am so excited you stopped by because that means you are getting married! I cannot wait to meet you and hear all about your story. I believe connecting with your photographer is so important so allow me to share a little about myself:
My husband, David, and I were married on September 9, 2016 - best day ever!
I wore a tea length wedding dress and am 100% obsessed with it!
Marriage, faith, and relationships are the three parts of my life I value most.
Outside of photography, I love doing DIY projects and decorating our home.
I believe car rides are meant for singing along to musical soundtracks and Disney songs.
I love my couples and knowing they will treasure their images forever!
Now that you know about me, I would love to learn about you!
Let me just say… Ashley is AMAZING! I am super awkward in photos and honestly hate having my photo taken. That being said, Ashley made me happy, comfortable, and helped me work through any issue I had. Her ability to frame photos and manipulate the lighting is spectacular, and she is so fast! I got married Saturday, January 15th. I had a few photos to post the next day, and by Tuesday the 18th, I had my entire preview available! Her personality is genuinely beautiful, and her photography is even better. If you have the chance to book her, DO IT!

Once you are booked we will begin planning your engagement session! We will discuss when, where, and style.
During your session, I will guide you through poses and prompts so that you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. This will make pictures during your wedding day a fun and easy experience.
I found Ashley through a series of circumstances on social media. After looking at her sight, I just had such a good vibe I knew she had to be my photographer. She is extremely attentive to detail and prepared. And her photos are gorgeous! I’ve had people tell me her photos of our wedding should be on the cover of a wedding magazine and that was just from our preview gallery. You will not be disappointed!

Bridal portraits are an incredibly special heirloom and gift to parents/grandparents.
Not only do you get gorgeous portraits in your dress, but seeing all of your details together is a great trial run for your wedding day. You can make sure hair, makeup, shoes, veil, jewelry and dress are all coming together how you want them to.
Many brides bring their mom, grandmother, or best friend too!
Ashley is absolutely amazing. She was with me from the very beginning all the way to the end. She helped me throughout the entire process, not only with the pictures, but with advice as well. She has seen this process many times, and she knew exactly what to do.

Leading up to your big day, we will finalize your timeline and discuss those must have photos.
When your day arrives, I will be by your side to guide you and your loved ones through the schedule.
There will be times when I step up to direct and other times you don't even know I'm there capturing those special candid moments.
Ashley is so personable and easy to work with! If you want someone who knows what she is doing and helps you pose, go with Rivers Light Photography! She was a blessing and she went beyond what I envisioned. She brought my dream wedding to life with her specific shots!
Madison, RLP Bride
In the midst of all the formalities, remember, your wedding is a celebration!
Enjoy eating your cake, grab hugs with your loved ones and break out your epic
I will be right there in the midst of the party to capture those fun-filled candid moments!
I absolutely LOVED having Ashley as our photographer. Her packages are amazing and so worth it. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day I have loved every photo she has taken. She is also the sweetest person!! Ashley and her assistant were both amazing on our wedding day. I would definitely recommend her to any bride looking for a photographer. I definitely plan on using her for future events/big announcement photoshoots. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Highly recommend.

When will we receive our photos?
You will receive a preview gallery within 48 hours of your wedding and the full gallery will be delivered within 6-8 weeks! Couples who book our all inclusive package receive their gallery within 4 weeks.
How many images do we receive?
I give my couples a fully edited gallery of all the best images! I get rid of images where people are blinking or out of focus. For weddings with two photographers, galleries average around 75-100 images an hour.
What is your photography style?
When it comes to shooting, I love to provide my couples with a variety both candid and posed portraits. My editing style is vibrant and true to color.
What motivates you as a wedding photographer?
I started photography in 2017 but my journey as a wedding photographer started as a little girl. I have fond memories of looking through wedding albums and listening to stories with my parents and grandparents. I loved watching them reminisce as they saw the images and told stories. I often imagine my couples doing the same with their loved ones. I believe in marriage and the impact your story has. Getting to support and capture weddings brings me such joy!
Are you available to travel for destination weddings?
Absolutely! I would love to hear all about your destination wedding plans. Travel fees vary depending upon location.
How do payments work?
I require a 20% non-refundable booking fee to secure your wedding date in my calendar. The remaining balance is due one week before your wedding.
Will you edit the images?
All the images in your gallery will be edited. This includes basic edits such as color adjustments, lighting adjustments, cropping, and sharpening.
What makes you unique?
Starting in 2023, I have decided to take on a limited number of weddings per year. The reason is so I can serve my couples with the attention their wedding deserves. This allows me to be available for consultations, provide flexibility on scheduling engagement or bridal sessions, and provide faster gallery delivery.
Do you offer customized packages?
Yes! I would love to hear about your specific wedding day needs. Let's chat!
Will you help pose us?
Absolutely! I love making photoshoots a fun and easy experience for my couples.
Do you use flash?
I use a combination of natural light shooting and flash photography. If you have any concerns, please let me know!
