hi, i’m ashley west founder and owner of ashley west photography!
this career is an absolute dream to me. i can say truly and honestly that i love what i do.i find myself completely fulfilled photographing the best days in people’s lives. it is unbelievably rewarding to be able to freeze a time so sweet and unique in someone’s life. i share a closeness with my clients that makes them feel, well, like friends! life is an amazing journey and i am here to capture and preserve the best parts of it–and i love every second of it! I have shot over 150 amazing weddings and gain true knowledge, experience, and fulfillment from each one! i look forward to the opportunity to photograph these special moments in your life.
my husband, nick and I have been married almost 3 years, dating 9 and we have loved sharing our life together. we are total dog lovers to our mutts, jude and scout. as of november 2015 we purchased a fixer upper in the country and have spent most of our life renovating it since then! we are so excited to have our “dream home” and the opportunity for it to be finished so we can finally enjoy it! i am a lover of fall. i was just made to be in boots and chunky sweatersi absolutely love christmas time and all the nostalgic feelings it brings! i love to bake, i love sweet treats, i love acai bowls, i love all of the good food columbus has to offer. i appreciate your consideration in me as your photographer, and i can’t wait for us to meet so i can learn all about you too!
hi, i’m ashley (#2!) wallace! i’m ashley west’s associate!
so, what’s an associate!? well, i’ve been 2nd shooting for ashley west for awhile now, and doing miscellaneous business tasks, and learning all about this amazing industry. we shoot, edit, think, and love in all the same ways. we were destined to work together. so, when you contact ashley west, and she’s booked… she will send you right over to me (ashley #2 wallace!). and i promise to take amazing care of you. looking forward to hearing from you and telling your wedding day story. (and we are going to work super hard to eliminate confusion, as we have practically the same name and the same heart). <3
i’ve always found joy in pulling the dusty boxes from the depths of my grandparents closet to sift through their old photos from the 70’s. their photos remind me why i love capturing moments in the lives of those in love. i always feel so inspired by the love that surrounds me at weddings. Being a wedding photographer is the best job i can imagine.
i am a lover of the outdoors, sunshine, crafting, traveling, and snugglin’ up with my husband, aaron and our cat charlie in our tiny green house in grandview, ohio.
when i’m away from my camera you can find me tending to my vegetable garden and daydreaming about owning a mini farm in the country.
i’m super allergic to bees, love my family to pieces, happily married almost 2 years to my husband aaron… who is an incredible artist that inspires me everyday.
working with ashley west has been such a great experience. she has pushed me since day one to make all of my dreams come true. i look forward to continuing this journey and meeting all of you!
