Every wedding is different and each love story unique. I believe in soulful, authentic photographs that are full of light and organic emotion. I believe in connection + I want to tell your story. Whether your wedding is in a backyard under twinkling bistro lights, across the ocean in Tuscany, on a rooftop in the city or out in the woods under the stars, what it comes down to for me is to be the photographer who tells your story to be seen for generations to come.
My wedding collections include all edited, high resolution photographs, all with personal print release, an engagement session, an extensive a-la-carte menu to choose from to customize your wedding photography coverage and an exclusive Ashwood Wedding Experience.
I am based out of the Pittsburgh, PA area and all travel fees within 100 miles are included within the wedding collection.

Photos Come To Life - -
Ashwood Imagery now offers another side to wedding and lifestyle films
Are you looking for a fun and unique wedding or lifestyle session film? Some people opt for stop-motion films instead of cinematic video, and others have them as well as video. What is stop motion exactly? It’s a succession of photographs taken on tripod that are then edited in video software to create a flicker book effect. Most of my stop motion wedding films are around 2000-4500 images compiled into a 5-7 minute film.
I’d love for you to contact me and we can have a chat on how fun these films can be! I am still building this part of my business, so stay tuned for my growing gallery of films to come.
Lifestyle and Portrait sessions help tell a story of your every day life. From the moment you're born until you're sitting on the porch swing with your wife or husband of 60 years, waiting for the grandchildren to come over, photos are there to tell it all.
My sessions include newborn lifestyle, family, children, seniors, maternity and even small events (contact for pricing on events)
Location is all up to your preference, and maybe even weather, but I am able to accommodate for in-home, in studio & on- location.
The experience you have on your wedding day means everything. And when booking me as your wedding photographer, I feel that quality should be equally as paramount as the experience when working together. I want you to be smiling, laughing, and feeling at ease throughout the entire process. I want you to trust in me 100%, and I want us to be friends. I'll be celebrating with you every step of the way.The experience is so important for personal reasons as well. I am the one person who will by your side more than any other person on your wedding day; So, hiring a photographer who has not only the style of photography you are wanting to cherish forever, but also a fun, outgoing attitude is so important - and that's exactly what you get with me. And not to worry - I will coach every couple through their portrait session, I will help you keep on track with your schedule on your wedding day, and I'll be cracking jokes with you all day long. Simply, we will have so much FUN together with everything along the way. And that's the way it should be.
As your photographer, it's also about the results you receive at the end of the day. The photographs should tell your wedding story. And when you receive your online gallery, I want you to feel like you are reliving your wedding day through your photographs. In those photographs, you will see all the beautiful details, the energy, and the pure joy from your wedding day over and over again. And since photographs are forever, every time you look at your photographs on the walls in your house, in your albums, and everywhere else that they might be, you will remember those most special moments in your life time and time again.
I'll be photographing details throughout your wedding day, capturing the raw emotions, and documenting the events as they naturally unfold. Everything will be amazing, incredible, gorgeous, and fun.

Do you shoot destination weddings?
Yes! Take me ALL over the world!
Will there be a second shooter?
2 out of my 3 packages include a second shooter. All of my second photographer choices have been in this industry as long as I have, are reputable and have worked with me before. I choose all of my second photographers by their style and their experience, then edit all images by both of us to have a cohesive look and story.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
All of my sessions include more than enough time to capture what we need but you can absolutely add more time to your session.
Wedding clients can add more time if necessary on the day of or even before hand. You will receive an invoice for the extended time before your images are delivered.
What kind of gear do you use?
I am a Canon lover and plan to stay with the canon brand as its tones and colors work well with my style and brand. I use two cameras at every wedding to have a backup at all times, as well as to have 2 different lenses in use at all times. I work with 5 different lenses throughout a wedding day to give me the look and feel I need at different moments of your day.
For lifestyle sessions, I typically work with 1-2 cameras and up to 3 lenses depending on the type of session.
I come complete with an array of lighting depending on your venue or home, and how much I need to light to complete your day and session.
Do I have to order prints through you?
While I do HIGHLY recommend ordering through your web album print store, you absolutely do not have to order your products through me. I do however have it in my contract that no two labs are the same and your images can look awful, out of focus and discolored if you choose to use a local chain and box store printer. Feel free to ask me about great consumer printers I do recommend!
How long does it take for my photos to arrive?
This is a very seasonal based question. For families, seniors, lifestyle and engagment sessions, you can expect no longer than 2 weeks for your gallery to arrive in your inbox.
