Either you’re here because you’re engaged to the love of your life or you’re here because you just love pretty pictures! Whatever category you may fall into, you won’t be disappointed! You’re in the right place and I’m so glad you’re here!!
After being a professional photographer for over 4 1/2 years, you would think that I would grow weary of weddings, right?! The reality is, I have seen and photographed it all and the more that I shoot, the more that I fall in love with this job! The joy, the excitement, the feminine details, the tears, the dances with daddy, the portraits that take your breath away.... I love it all. Even after 4 years, I still can’t get over the fact that I have been trusted with preserving over 83 weddings!! I don’t take my job lightly.
Before every wedding day begins I sit in the car with my quad shot from Starbucks and I pray for my couple, their families and for the ability to capture our couple’s celebration with excellence and creativity! Besides raising my sweet baby boy, Elijah, photographing weddings is truly one of the most rewarding parts of my life! The friendships and experiences that I've created with my Ashlea Snell Couples lasts far beyond the wedding day and I believe that’s how it should be! I'm excited for you to keep scrolling to learn more about how being a AS Bride isn’t your typical photography experience; it’s so much more!
It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks of our job. I have emails and edits and blog posts and albums and shoots to keep up with on a daily basis, but I know that those things are just tasks that need to be done and they aren’t the heartbeat of my business. I truly believe that my interactions and experiences that I give my couples are a special opportunity! God has blessed me with the ability to not only do what I love as our career, but He also brings AMAZING people into our life in the process. I believe that I have been given this business and my gifts for the purpose of serving others and bringing joy into our couples' lives! There is no greater feeling than seeing my work bring my couples and their families to tears! I leave wedding days with big hugs, kisses on the cheeks, and full hearts knowing that I forever impacted two families!
MY MISSION in this business is to glorify God with how I serve my clients, and use our gifts to create a joyful experience for our clients!
