You are embarking on the most important journey of your life, and you want to be sure it's captured in photos that will last forever. Your wedding day is special because for one night at least everything else falls away—all fears are left behind. As a Mississippi wedding photographer, I can guarantee your photos will be joyful, classic, and timeless.
You deserve the best, so I'm going to give it my all.
I want you smiling from ear-to-ear on your wedding day and throughout the entire experience - because this is something that should be fun! When people are in love with what they do as much or more than each other then everything seems simpler, somehow better...like magic really does happen when two hearts unite before God's throne (and sometimes even sooner). Let me help make sure those moments last forever by capturing them beautifully through photographs which will remind us both to always value this time spent while sharing life’s most precious gifts.
I serve my couples wholeheartedly, before, during, and after their wedding day. When it comes down to it, I treat every wedding day as if it were my own. So basically, I want to be your wedding photographer.
The fun begins! After working together to choose the perfect locations, we will spend an hour together to shoot your engagement photos! Your only job during our session is to love each other - I will coach you through posing for the entire shoot. This is a time for us to get to know one another, get comfortable working together and allow you to spend time together in front of the camera with no stress!
As your wedding day approaches, I will be available to help with anything you need. I will also send over a timeline guide to help maximize your time with me. .That way, you can wake up on your wedding day entirely stress free and ready to marry that man of your dreams
(Freebie-I recommend doing a First look)
Now it's time to enjoy the day you've been planning for your whole life. It's going to be a blur and go by super fast. I strive to make everything fun, easy and stress-free as possible. By this point, we will be like besties. I'll be with you more than your future husband on the day of the wedding.
Within 6-8 weeks post wedding you'll receive your wedding day gallery, through your client portal. Your beautifully displayed online gallery is where you are able to download, share and print all of the high-resolution digital files., you also receive a little gift from me. :)
An investment into wedding photography is something you will cherish for your entire lifetime and the generations beyond. After you've stored your dress, the cake has been eaten, the flowers have wilted, the guests have left, and all that's left are memories -- your photographs will forever remain. and it's those photographs that will tell your story.
Be sure to have a hair and makeup trial at least a month before your wedding. This will give you peace of mind to know exactly how you will look and give you the opportunity to change things in advance if necessary. Make sure to bring all jewelry to the trial to see how makeup shades work with the pieces. Please no artificial spray tan.
f possible, arrange to have your family formal photographs taken before the ceremony. Getting this step out of the way early in the day frees up some of your time and they will be able to go straight to cocktail hour as we take time with you and your new husband’s photographs. On this day, you can choose and it’s no longer considered bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding.
Have food delivered to where you are getting ready. It may be hectic, but take the time to have a bite before the wedding since it will be a while before you have the opportunity to nourish yourself during the reception.
Allowing 50% more time for hair and makeup than you originally anticipated alleviates the number one reason wedding schedules end up running late. This will assure you have plenty of time for all of the portraits you want to take before the wedding.t.
Take it from a professional, this is the perfect wedding planning tool!
"Victoria Ashley is THE most amazing photographer ever!!! Seriously, not only did she do a truly phenomenal job capturing our day, but she did it with the most genuine intentions.

All that said to say, THANK YOU x a million for every second that you spent with us❤️"

Victoria is the best!!! So patient, easy to work with, and so much fun!!! Her work is amazing too!!! Definitely book her for anything you need!!!
Victoria is one of the best. She stepped in when my original wedding photographer had to have an unplanned c-section the morning of my wedding. Victoria got up to speed with our details with only one day to prepare, but it felt like she’d been involved since the beginning. She did a great job managing all the personalities of my family and wedding party. She was attentive, encouraging, creative, and most importantly calm. I would absolutely recommend her to my best friend, and I will personally hire her for future sessions
I can't say enough amazing things about Victoria! Victoria saved the day when our photographer, Erica, had to have an emergency C- section the week before our wedding. Victoria made our wedding day feel like a breeze. She eased my anxiety and was my biggest advocate the entire day. Our entire family and bridal party couldn't stop raving about how sweet and amazing Victoria was and I couldn't agree more! By the end of the night I felt like I had been working with Victoria for months vs a day! I couldn't recommend her more! You're getting an amazing and talented photographer that makes you feel so comfortable! I am so so so happy I had the opportunity to work with her!
