Hey there, friend! My name is Elizabeth Ashley and I am 31-year-old natural light chaser preserving your most precious memories. I live in Philadelphia, am my husband's girlfriend, and have a kick-butt ginger cat named Shooter. I cherish experiencing life through travel, delicious food, and sipping ice coffee during long drives with the windows down.
When did my photography journey begin?
My strongest memories as a young girl are those of my mother using her 35mm film camera on trips to museums or gardens in the Philadelphia area. I loved sealing the film in an envelope and waiting for the photographs to magically appear a week or so later. I vividly remember feeling awe that it was possible to 'freeze' a moment and have tangible evidence that it happened! As I got older I'd borrow my mother’s Polaroid, her Point and Shoot, and even her handheld video camera. I was 'that' teenager who was constantly taking photographs at parties and school functions. After school, I'd venture out to the park and use a disposable camera to shoot photographs of the blossoming flowers or leaves as they began to change color in the fall. I majored in Psychology, English, Media Studies and Photography throughout my college career. Ultimately I decided to follow my desire to share my vision of the world and the people in it and started my own photography business, E. Ashley Photography.
If it evokes emotion in you, keep your finger on the shutter and pursue that feeling with your eye.
I provide a professional, timeless, authentic catalog of natural light images based on your individual preference. I strive to capture your most personal moments, creating a visual archive of your life. Each Client enjoys a personal story - a timeline enhanced by a unique history. An investment with E. Ashley Photography lasts long after the session ends. My goal is to provide each Client with memories that will be appreciated for generations to come.
"Elizabeth is the best! She went above and beyond for our newborn session, driving over an hour to shoot at our house, staying later than planned, and keeping things laid back throughout the process. Instead of making us awkwardly pose, Elizabeth captured organic moments between our family as they happened and we couldn’t be happier with the end results! Now we have dozens of warm, loving images with our baby that we can look back on throughout the years.".
