your insanely trusted confidant

a hopeless romantic and 

Hey ya’ll! I’m Ashton Steele, your expert wedding & portrait photographer and future best friend (seriously, I’ve met some of my closest friends this way). When I photograph your big moment, I think 50 years into the future. Real people and honest moments are what create incredible photographs that speak through time. A certified Texan through and through, I’m down-to-earth, kind-hearted and truly care about you and your big day – so much that I’ve had many couples come back after their engagement shoot for their wedding, and then for alllll their maternity shoots and family portraits (yep, I do that too)! When it comes to wedding photographers, I say: get someone who’s honest, real and insanely supportive (because you’ll need all the support you can get on your big day!) And you can trust me when I say, I’m your girl. 

Ready to gain a bestie that will always be there to capture the big moments?

some of my favorite things:

captured my first wedding and fell in love with documenting love stories

mar 2017

Dipped my toes in the water by starting a photography business photographing my friends senior portraits 

apr 2016

My freshman year of high school I traveled abroad to London, taking in the sights and sounds of cobblestone streets, iconic brownstones and a cloud-filled sky – and it blew my humble little Texas heart wide open. I documented everything on my camera, and I’ve been hooked ever since

Mar. 2009

Born just before midnight in Lubbock, Texas (I’m convinced this is why I’m a night owl)

My journey

5 years after getting into the wedding industry, 6 years after diving into an unknown journey and 12 years after that trip to London, and more than 20 weddings later, launched a rebrand of my business!

"Ashton gave us memories we will cherish for a lifetime"

“I am not someone who enjoys having my picture taken ever! Ashton forced me to change my mind in the best way. The photos she took are the best photos I have ever taken. She captured my engagement and gave my fiancé and me memories we will be able to cherish for a lifetime.”

-Baylee Venglar 

"She captures the best moments." 

Ashton is amazing! She captures the best moments. We had sooo much fun and almost didn’t realize we were being photographed. 1000x recommend!”

-Jessica Head Burnett  

"The time and effort she put into our photos showed as the final product was amazing." 

Wow! Ashton was extremely easy to work with. Her knowledge and skill are unmatched. Catherine and my surprise engagement photos turned out incredible - better than we could have imagined. The time and effort she put into our photos showed as the final product was amazing. If you’re looking for a photographer for any occasion, Ashton will exceed all expectations.”

-Chris Callahan  

"Her clients are always her friends, and if they’re not, she makes it so they are." 

Her clients are somehow always her friends, and if they’re not, she makes it so they are. She’s always willing to find a workaround so everybody gets what they need. I don’t meet many photographers who will jump in and make a bouquet! I find that really admirable, especially in our industry.”
