about ellen ashton...


I'm a destination and local wedding photographer, who is addicted to trying new things and 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.


my story...

I am based just outside of Dallas, TX and living life to the fullest with my college sweetheart of a husband and our attitude packed, yet ever so sweet yorkie, Mack.

I’ve been a wedding photographer since 2013 and feel so blessed to have the best clients in the world! It’s been a joy to travel across the country to capture some of their most treasured moments and memories. It’s not uncommon to see me strolling around the airport with my camera bag in tow, a Starbucks in my hand and chatting to a total strangers. In fact, I have met several of my brides this way! I adore that my job allows my free spirit to roam and do what I love most, which is connecting with people and telling couples love stories via my camera.

Aside from being a wedding photographer and entrepreneur, I very much enjoy spending time with my little family, laughing heartily with all the people I love, trying new coffee shops, purchasing essential oils, shopping at my ride or die store, watching youtube makeup tutorials, daydreaming about what adventure is next and spending quality time with my tribe.
