Hello! I'm Ashley Sue.

Most days you can find me in my fave pair of comfy jeans, hanging out in my home office with a cup of coffee in hand and some Frank Sinatra playing in the background. 

I am married to the most selfless man on the planet and together we have two beautiful, albeit crazy, kiddos. We are adventurers at heart and dream about the day we can move into our farm house in the country in total Chip + Joanna Gaines style. 

I love Walt Disney World and am a hopeless romantic at heart. 

I value simple living, the perfect red lipstick, not taking life too seriously, the art of light hearted sarcasm, and making the best of any situation.

My photography style is timeless, joyful, and authentic. 

I will do anything to make you laugh and I promise to always find the silver lining of any situation. 

I make it simple for you, keep it light, and focus on the precious candid moments that naturally occur between two people who are madly in love. 

Years from now, I want you to look back at your wedding photographs and have all of those memories come flooding back. 

I want you to remember the sounds, the smells, and most of all, the feelings from the day you wed and I will do everything in my power to help those memories last a lifetime.

my philosophy

The HEART behind everything I do.

I believe that weddings are more than just any day, it is the beginning of your marriage and it is the day where all of your closest friends and family are gathered together to celebrate your love for each other. Those are moments and emotions that will never happen again with a group of people that will likely never be in the same room again. It is so important to have someone there to capture those moments that not only has the intuition and life experience to be aware of the little moments happening all around, but also has the technical skill to bring in light, focus, depth of field, and flattering angles in every image. 

I also know that weddings can be stressful.

Bring together that many people with that many emotions and you're likely to have a moment or two of overwhelm. Girl. I know all about the overwhelm. And here's the thing; at the end of your wedding day, you and that hunky love of your life are still going to be married. And if you're not? Well, I will personally drive to the closest airport to hop the first flight to Vegas. And in the in between, I've got you. I will run interference, bring you chocolate (or champagne!), or get you and your groom a couple moments of alone time in the midst of chaos. My goal on a wedding day is not only to capture beautiful images but to do everything in my power to ensure that you and your groom have the space to breathe and enjoy these first moments of your marriage... and those moments of breathing and enjoying each other in a moment of peace? Those are the images you'll hang on your walls, those are the images you'll show your grandchildren, and those are the images that will embody your first moments of husband and wife.

If you're reading this and find yourself going, 'yessss. all the yessss', then shoot me an email and let's chat because I am pretty sure I would love to meet you

xoxo,

love letters

David + Emily

“We had the most wonderful experience with Ashley Sue Photography. Ashley is warm and kind, gracious and pleasant... The thing no one realizes beforehand is just how much of a difference your vendors will make in the feel and mood of your day. A day that you would certainly hope to enjoy and hold dearly in your memories. Ashley was fun and at ease on our wedding day. She felt more like a friend than anything else. We were stunned when we got our photos back. She was able to capture moments we didn’t know we were even having. Seeing your wedding day from an outside perspective is unlike anything else. It was magical. Her creativity and authentic style shine through her work, all while being one of the most pleasant parts of the actual day. If you want genuine moments that will last your lifetime, and someone to work with who is humble, honest, and true to you, then Ashley is undoubtedly your girl. Couldn’t recommend her more!”

“We were so fortunate to find Ashley Sue Photography. She is great at her craft and seriously makes anyone look great! She is timely, professional, and also fun. My fiancé is a big introvert and she even made him come out of his shell to take some amazing photos. She is just all around awesome and I would recommend her 1,000 times over for photos of your big day, family, engagement, baby,...passport photo. You name it. She is great! Such an awesome experience!!”

“Ashley is not only a fantastic photographer, but she’s a lovely person! I’m so happy that my fiance and I came across Ashley and are very pleased and happy that she is going to be our wedding photographer. We had a great time taking our engagement pictures at Buford Dam Park and she made the whole shoot fun and gave us helpful direction. I would highly recommend Ashley to any brides to be!”
