BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT
ashley helen

Lover of antiques, rustic European style & fluffy animals. Middle of three sisters. Collector of vintage cameras & milk glass.

Hi! I'm Ashley. I'm an heirloom wedding and boudoir photographer, and love what I do because of the places I've been and the people I have met (and photographed) along the way. 

As a biology student, I came into photography by happy accident through my travels and study abroad adventures. I was on a trip in the Amazon studying rainforest ecology, but I just couldn't turn my focus away from the people I met. I used photography to explore everything I was experiencing, and I came back from that trip realizing I needed to be photographing and creating. So I changed my major to photography, and there's been no turning back since. I still wholeheartedly love learning about a person through photography.
