ASHLEY VANDERVELDE PHOTOGRAPHY
Your story, artistically told
Intimate wedding photographer | Elopement photographer | Pacific Northwest & anywhere you are
Indiana born & raised, but forever traveling, making new friends, & falling in love with every small town I pass through.
I believe in preserving memories, capturing real moments, & creating art from photographing the moments we live in. Life should be romanticized. Your relationships, your accomplishments, even your trips to the coffee shop, & the encounters you have with strangers in the produce aisle.
I'm inspired by spirit of everything & our intentionality with how we choose to live our lives. Wide open spaces, large bodies of water, poetry, art, people who wear bright patterned pants, & those who live in the moment.
The photography that illustrates your life should be exciting, magical & a true reflection of who you are at your core. I'm here to create that with you.

Hi, I'm Ashley
Photographing a couple's love story is something I never take for granted. It is an honor & privilege to create art for my couples. My absolute favorite thing to do is illustrate your love story, your adventures, & your favorite memories.
After 8 years of capturing weddings, I have learned that my job far
surpasses just a photographer. It is also helping you plan the perfect details, picking meaningful places to photograph at, helping you feel like the complete badasses you are, & not just photographing you, but creating imagery that is a true reflection of you at your core.
From the moment we first meet, it is my goal to make your photography experience a completely unforgettable one.
"Not only is Ashley the kindest, most beautiful person inside and out…she also is one of the most talented photographers I have ever come across. I believe her true purpose on this planet was to capture your most emotional and intimate moments and make them that much more beautiful. I don’t know how there could ever be any review other than a 5 star rating for this beautiful soul. She is punctual, communicative, professional, welcoming, kind, hilarious and so much more. Her moody, under exposed style is her trademark at this point and it’s something she does well. If I could give Ashley a rating higher than a 5 I would."
