Studio Events 1pintopinterest

I present to you, my studio space! Most of you have already seen this as the building has been done since October 2018. It has slowly evolved into a small event space and I wanted to share some information for that here to those inquiring!

A little back story… My husband and I purchased our dream property in November 2015. We have spent the last 4 years renovating every inch of it. When we moved in, this building stood, however it looked NOTHING like this 🙂 Dirt floors, a storage barn if you will. But I knew immediately what I was going to do with it. And 2018 was the lucky year that we got around to it! I use the space as a natural light photography studio most of the time. However, we have had such an interest in small events that we are now offering this as well.

Here is a little information on the barn!

We are located in Pataskala between Granville and Blacklick. The max capacity is 50 people. We host small celebrations such as bridal and baby showers, children birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, etc.  The space is booked hourly and completely DIY (there will be no staff on site). It is 1280 square feet, has a full bathroom and full kitchen on site.

You can find more photos and constant updates on my instagram: @ashley_west_photo (be sure to check out story highlights for “Event Venue.”)

If you are interested in booking the space for your next celebration, please email and I will be sure to send over the pricing guide with more information! It has been so much fun to be a small part in peoples happiest milestones in their lives. We hope to host you soon!

In Home Shoots 2019 1pintopinterest

There’s nothing quite like welcoming a new baby into your family. The moment I met my boys and the weeks and months following were truly some of the best (and exhausting!) times in my life. They stay little for such a brief time that every single photo we have in those early days is so cherished. I could argue that weddings, engagements, outdoor family sessions, and in home sessions are all in some way my favorite to shoot – I truly love all that I do. But there is just something about coming into your home, the one you brought your baby to and experienced all those sleepless nights, that is so special. It is so YOU. Most of the best memories from childhood are the simple ones within the walls of your home. I am so grateful to be able to capture that fleeting time for my clients. I threw together some of my favorite in home sessions from 2019 and wanted to share. I hope you enjoy taking a peek at these moments as much as I loved capturing them.

Jess and Matt shared a beautiful and intimate day. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, a beautiful venue, beautiful flowers, and even more beautiful vows, these two are a dream couple and completely deserving of one another. It was an honor to witness and document their amazing wedding.

Laura Dave Engaged 1pintopinterest

Laura+Dave, aren’t they beautiful!? It’s pretty easy to see their chemistry and how much fun we had during their engagement shoot this Summer. They wanted me to come along for a date night, and that put us at one of the coolest spots in Columbus, Lincoln Social. We had such fun time exploring the bar and getting to know each other. I love when couples come to me with an idea in mind for their engagement sessions. I love to see their personalities come out and to do something thats super “them.” I think it absolutely paid off because I adore these images. What a perfect night! I am shooting their wedding TODAY! And I cant wait. See you at Dock580 in a few hours!
