I have always been a fan of handwritten letters with love so it is such an honor to have you reading this now. You're currently on a search for the perfect photographer to tell your love story and I hope you have found yourself in the right place.
By now you have probably sifted through so many beautifully captured weddings from many different photographers and you're wondering what sets them all apart aside from pricing. How do you find the perfect person to trust with the start of your very first family heirlooms? Until our meeting allow me to help put you at ease and give you assurance that your wedding is not just another wedding to me.
I'll start by saying that I am not just a photographer. I am not a vendor at your wedding. You are not just another wedding on my calendar.
Our relationship begins at the start of an email and from that point forward my intent is to build that connection into trust, comfort, security that goes beyond photographing the wedding day. I am there for you if you have questions about locations, attire, details on the wedding day. Whatever you may need I am just an email or a coffee meeting away to help you work through any question or concern you may have.
With nearly a decade of professional wedding experience, there are a few things that I take to heart being your wedding photographer. Allow me to share a bit further into why I am not your average photographer.
You have spent so much time getting ideas and thinking about this day it is without a doubt yours and unique to you and your future spouse. That is exactly what I want your photos to reflect. Therefore, I do not allow a Pinterest style shot list outside of family photos. While I promise to capture all the important moments, focusing on capturing every photo on a list takes away from capturing the real moments happening before us. And I can assure you that I will deliver to the most heartfelt emotions that are genuine and true if you trust and allow me to do what I was designed to do.
It is important to remember that this day is more than an event for your friends and family that you are putting together. This day is about you and your partner becoming one spiritually. It's because of this reason that I only work with couples who have hired an experienced planner for this event. Finding a perfect planner that you entrust to make sure every little detail is in place is a must. We work very closely with planners to give you the day you will never forget.
With that said, make this day about the two of you! Write the love letters, give the little gifts that only the two of you will understand, sneak away for a moment to be alone. I promise you, your guests will be more than happy with the party you have prepared for them.
I look forward to building a lifelong relationship with like minded couples who value the moments that make up the life story that is uniquely theirs.
Ashly McCoy is such a joy to work with! My husband and I eloped in Savannah, Georgia in April, 2021. We are usually not very comfortable in front of the camera. However, the moment we met Ashly she put us at ease. It felt as if we've known her a long time. She guided us through all of our photos and took us to places with some of the most beautiful backdrops for our pictures. Our photos look amazing and natural! Ashly's professionalism, knowledge, and nurturing manner truly made our day more special than we had imagined it would be!
Ashly was truly the most AMAZING photographer we could have ever asked for! She went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make our day perfect (flying to Ohio for the wedding, answering a million questions about my wedding dress, bridesmaid's colors, finding the best places to take pictures, etc.). She was so professional, caring, creative, and detail oriented! She made sure we got all the most meaningful photos, and kept the day running smoothly. We are so thankful to have met and worked with someone as amazing as Ashly!
Ashly was the photographer for our wedding in Savannah, and we could not have asked for a more natural, beautiful photos! Neither myself nor my husband are huge photo people, so we were worried about our pictures coming out stiff/unnatural or feeling uncomfortable during the day, however Ashly was AMAZING!
She was so professional and incredible to work with; aside from her amazing photography skills, her kind, easygoing personality put us at ease and gave us the most beautiful wedding photos we could have dreamed for! We definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone who has the chance to work with her!
Ashly did a wonderful job capturing our day! We felt so comfortable working with her and she graciously organized our crazy group. All of the photos are thoughtful and detailed; some of my favorites are the candid shots that perfectly capture the joy from the day!
