About Ashley Jayde Photography
Hi, I'm Ash.
I live in a small town near Frederick, Maryland with my 2 kiddos, 2 doggos, and 1 husband (see below). I am a crafter and maker. You're here because of my photography, but I do much more than that. In my spare time I like to sew clothes, embroider, crochet, eat Mexican food, create things (all the things!), volunteer, and bake goodies (especially bread!) I have the incredibly talented ability to turn answers, requests, and general conversation into songs at any unexpected moment. Sarcasm is fine. Mom jokes > dad jokes. I love pugs? I don’t know! What more do you want from a photographer?
This is Trey
Trey is my partner in crime. The cheese to my chip. I’m the “face” of Ashley Jayde Photography, but I suspect our clients love Trey the most. He’s from the Midwest, so that means he’ll talk to just about anyone and then invite them over for a family meal. When Trey isn’t by my side, you can find him doing boring administrative work behind the scenes, and photographing events without me.
In his spare time, Trey enjoys shaking tiki cocktails with his homemade syrups. He might try to invite you to hang out after your big day for a Mai Tai or Scorpion Bowl.
About the Business
Ashley Jayde Photography was established in 2011 after my very own wedding. Ashley Jayde Photography is a premium photography service. We are a Husband and Wife team the love photographing weddings. Our number one goal is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible while we document your event or wedding. WE WILL HAVE FUN! YOU WILL LOVE YOUR PHOTO'S!
How do you describe your style?
We shoot event's and weddings with light in mind. We utilize a combination of natural light and flash/strobe. We love light manipulation and using natural and artificial lighting to create amazing timeless images.
Will there be a second shooter?
You can totally have a second shooter for your event or wedding! I prefer to shoot with my associate photographer. He has been shooting for over 10 years and has so much energy for your big day! I absolutely recommend checking out our 2 photographer options.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Of course! We are extremely flexible with our session time as long as their isn't a pressing session scheduled right after your's. (very rare)
Typically we take a roll with the punches approach. If you're having so much fun and loving the session we can definitely add more time on the fly.
What happens if your equipment breaks or fails the day of our event?
We keep shooting! We attend every event with back up everything. From camera's to lighting equipment we carry everything we need incase something fails.
We're wedding photographers but those Boy Scouts were on to something with - Alway's be prepared.
Do I have to order prints through you?
Only if that's something you're interested in. It will not offend me at all if you have a preferred photo lab you use for development of prints. However, I would love to share with you some examples of places I do recommend for quality to insure you get amazing printed images.
