Dallas Texas Fine Art Engagement Session | Ellen Ashton Photography | Dallas Wedding Photographers

I am so excited to share with you all Daniel & Amanda's downtown Dallas engagement session! 

I met Daniel and Amanda when we were all poor little college students. I was thrilled when I heard these two got engaged and am so honored to have been able to photograph this special time in their lives. 

As most of you know, I adore all things pertaining to love and weddings so of course this downtown session was right up my ally! 

I hope you enjoy this sweet session as much as I enjoyed taking it.

As always, much love and many blessings



Y'all have absolutely no idea how overjoyed I was when we snagged this dreamy roof top location. It was really a dream come true and I am so thankful for the people who helped us get into this location. It literally made this shoot 10 million times more special. 

We Own The Night Styled Elopement Shoot | Minneapolis Fine Art Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Artfully Wed

I am so honored and excited that Ellen Ashton Photography (along with many other talented Minnesota vendors) have been published on ArtfullyWed!

The idea for this shoot came to me when I was jamming out to a popular country song in my car. As I was belting the song mid chorus the idea struck me that the name "We Own The Night" would make a killer styled elopement shoot. 

After this thought came to me, I knew I needed to contact someone who could make this shoot come to alive and I knew that Kelly & Jenny from Maven would be the perfect girls for the job.

We sat in a coffee shop brainstorming on what this collaboration would look like... I just want to say that this shoot far exceeded my expectation! Kelly's styling and design was far better than anything I could have ever dreamed up and Jenny's florals were to die for! 

As excited as a am about seeing my images published, it's important to me that everyone is aware that it took a lot of pieces to make these dreamy and romantic images possible. It takes a talented team and a lot of hard work to make a shoot like this. I am so thankful for each and every one of these vendors who made this idea breath life. 

Make sure to check out these vendors and follow them on social media so you can keep up with all of their lovely work! 

Much love,
