Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I am Ellen Ashton! I specialize in destination and local fine art wedding photography. 

If you are looking for timeless, romantic, creative and heartfelt imagery, look no further! 

 Here at Ellen Ashton Photography I help couples tell their feature grandchildren their love story through the power of photography.

It brings me so much joy to have genuine relationships with my couples. By doing so, it give me the opportunity to photograph you in a more genuine way. I mean, hello- love stories are a one of a kind type of thing, and the love that you and your fiancé share deserves to be captured in a special way. I adore using my editorial, yet journalistic style to capture your big day!

Finding your person and marrying them is one of the happiest times in a persons life, and I want to be there with you and for you, celebrating and capturing every step of the way! Nothing makes my heart more full then to make my clients feel beautiful and confident in front of the camera.

On the wedding day you will most likely see me either being a fly on the wall, styling your details (ohhhh how I LOVE detail photos!!) or directing you to the perfect lighting to capture a gorgeous vision I see in my head. I LOVE making my brides feel like they just walked out of a magazine!  

I want to photograph your wedding in such a way that even your great grandchildren can experience the essence of your wedding day when they flip through the pages of your wedding album. 

So, if your looking for an experience, as well as great wedding photo's with a photographer who’s work you can trust, please connect with me! I want to get to know you!


About Ellen Ashton 


 Hi, I'm Ellen Ashton & I am a hunter boot fanatic, professional traveler & chai tea connoisseur. Photographing couples in love is one of my greatest joys!

I started learning photography at age 21 while battling a life threatening illness. Photography is what kept me going and gave me purpose during that season of my life. I am now 6.5 years cured and living my best life!  What once was the deepest valley is now my mountain high! If I was never sick, I wouldn't have been given my life calling-capturing memories. Life is so short, I know this all too personally, and because of that I understand the value how precious and important it is to have your special moments taken with the upmost care. Being able to give my clients tangible memories of their most memorable days warms my heart in ways I can't put into words. Life is too short to not have beautiful photos with your loved ones!

Adventure is something I crave! My heart always skips a beat for destination sessions & wedding photography. I can't say no to photographing beautiful scenery or dreamy cities. No matter where my clients want to go, I am always ready with my camera bag packed!

While I specialize in Destination wedding photography, I also shoot local wedding as well! I adore  photographing real and raw moments for couples who desire unique, chic and timeless photographs. I see pictures as if they are true moments that are frozen in time and precious memories to last a lifetime.

One of my guilty pleasures in life is making people feel confident and beautiful. I know it may sounds a little gimmicky, but I promise it’s true. I love people! Just go ahead and call me the little mermaid, I enjoy being where the people are.

Often I get asked “what is your strength in being a wedding photographer?” Well, aside from all the logistics of taking gorgeous photos, I would say time management. It’s important to me that my clients time is respected and that we keep things moving in a timely yet joy filled manner. I am great with large crowds of people and organizing them in an efficient way that keeps everyone happy and make them feel at ease.
