The Maid of Honor Toast of all Maid of Honor Toasts! Taylor's sweet little sister summed up their sisterly love so perfectly. "My sister took care of me when I was sick....she takes me shopping all the time, but uses Mom's money". Sisters are seriously the best, and this bond between Taylor and Emerson was simply heartwarming. #taylormadeforroberge #ashleyhelencouple #ashleyhelenweddings ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photography: @ashleyhelenphotography Planner: @samantha.borowski Venue: @longlookfarmweddings Florals: @sweetlavenderfloraldesign Hair & Makeup: @tr_salon, Sam Flynn Wedding Gown: @madeleinesdaughter @palomablancabridal Rentals: @specialeventsofnewengland
From one of my best days in Paris by far! We spent the entire day at Jardins de Luxembourg, playing with boats on the pond, eating ice cream, meeting new friends on the playground, lunch outdoors, a pony ride, and an old fashioned puppet show. Part of me was sad to not see any museums while we were in Paris (we only had 2 days) but this day more than made up for anything else we could have possibly done.
Possibly the most effortlessly elegant lady I've ever photographed.
This image reminds me of the first wedding I ever photographed. I was a second shooter, and it was 2006. I was a photography student at the time, and I was only allowed to shoot film for the first two semesters. For some reason, those petals dropped elegantly on the floor just resonated with me and I captured it on Kodak Tri-X with my grandfather's F-1 camera. This summer, when I noticed this little detail, it took me back in time. It's amazing how memories can sometimes come flooding back that you had forgotten were even there, brought out by something so small and seemingly insignificant. I'll have to go back through my old film 🎞 (yes, I've kept it all) and find the negative. Also coming out of the archives is the F-1 📷. She needs to be working in the field again ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographed at @laurenfair + @juliepaisley’s #LandJWorkshopAbroad in Normandy, France Creative Direction, Design + Florals: @oleandercurated Wardrobe Styling + Flatlay Design: @jannabrowndesignco Hair + Makeup: @nataliaissa Jewelry: @juvelan Models: @queraplay @robin.mayeur Gown: @alexandragrecco + @mirazwillinger Shoes: @bellabelleshoes Calligraphy: @shastabellcalligraphy
Well, hello! I don't show my face on here as often as I'd like, but I'm Ashley! The owner and photographer behind this little corner of Instagram. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although I am often told I'm the quietest person anyone has ever met and I do love calmness, I adore the loudest of thunderstorms and the biggest of fireworks. When the booms are so intense it reverberates through your core, everything else around you seem so much smaller and calmer, and a thrill hits me hard every single time. Ask me where to find the best storms and the best fireworks show...I have my favorites!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by the incredible @juliepaisley
One of these days, I'm going to actually learn how to do calligraphy, and not just think about it. I see so many workshops out there where you can learn, and I think it would be such a fun thing to do just for myself! What are some hobbies you enjoy that are just for you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographed at the @laurenfair and @juliepaisley #landjworkshopabroad
Soaking up these last sunshine-filled days. Maine seems to be the spot for photos this month! Taking my 3rd trip up the coast of Maine so far this month!
Happy Sunday! A little tradition I’ve started on the mornings after a wedding is snuggling my little girl while we watch cartoons and have breakfast in bed. Daniel Tiger and Doc McStuffins are my faves 💕 Photographed at @laurenfair + @juliepaisley’s #LandJWorkshopAbroad in Normandy, France @chateaudecourtomer Creative Direction, Design + Florals: @oleandercurated Wardrobe Styling + Flatlay Design: @jannabrowndesignco Hair + Makeup: @nataliaissa Jewelry: @juvelan Models: @olesiankt + @shojicharles Gown: @mirazwillinger Suit: @rives_paris Paper Goods + Calligraphy: @designhouseofmoira Linens: @nuagedesigns
