Mallory Bridal Portraits https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2015/4/mallory-bridal-portraits In preparation for the UnReal Wedding Experience we arranged for a bridal session of our gorgeous bride, Mallory. Unfortunately we had rain, rain, and more rain, and this was our only day to do it before the big show, so we made it work! We found some gorgeous spots at the Augusta Museum of History, and then made our way over to Surrey Center. I love love love how they came out...but with a bride THIS gorgeous how could they be bad ;)

Mallory + Patrick Downtown Augusta Nighttime Engagement Session https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2015/4/mallory-patrick-downtown-augusta-nighttime-engagement-session I was thrilled to be a part of the UnReal Wedding experience this past March. In preparation for the event, we decided to do an engagement session with our "bride and groom". Looking for a session that was a little bit different, we opted to do a nighttime session downtown Augusta and it was so much fun! We braved what had to have been one of the windiest days of the year, and we pretty much froze our butts off but I'm sure glad we did! Mallory and Patrick were champs and I'm in love with the results!

Mr. + Mrs. Downs https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2013/4/mr-mrs-downs  

Sabrina + Chris' Wedding was SUCH a blast! I first met Sabrina and Chris back in January, and I remember their wedding seemed so far away. It's crazy how fast time passes! Sabrina kept me up to date on her theme/decor/wedding details, but honestly their wedding was even more gorgeous than I could have imagined! I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know this lovely couple and their friends and family. Thank you both for trusting me to capture your Wedding Day for you, and I definitely look forward to working with y'all in the future!! Here's another little sneak peek...hope you enjoy!

betterblogging https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2013/2/betterblogging Hey Everyone!

So I have come to terms with the fact that I am not the best blogger. When I first started my website, I told myself I would be posting blogs at least on a weekly basis - and that lasted for what, 2 weeks? In between photoshoots, editing, e-mails, bookings, marketing, Facebook, and generally running a business I have completely forgotten about my weekly blogging goal! Anyways, I'm here now, and I will make an effort to post more! 2013 has been keeping me super busy and I couldn't be happier!! I am back in school (for the 7th year) and have finally found a major that I love - Marketing! Oddly enough, it was my first major I declared when I attended Georgia State University at 17 years old....guess I had it right the first time! I participated in my first Bridal Show this year - put on by Southern Square Bridal and it was a BLAST! I met so many amazing people and am thrilled to say that I have booked 6 weddings from that one show! I am slowly upgrading my equipment and am totally in love with all of my new lenses. 

 

When I photographed my first wedding, I knew that this is what I want to be doing...the only thing I love more than photography is helping my clients in any way possible, and providing them with pictures that remind them of the moments and emotions of that little piece of their life. My artistic/creative side is totally satisfied when I get the opportunity to photograph weddings, love, and all the details that come along with the big day; but my HEART is satisfied when I know that I have truly helped someone, and also when something that I have created with my equipment, emotions, and my eyes - can bring a smile to someone's face.

 

If the start of this year is any indicator of my career as a photographer, then I think I am in for a happy and totally fulfilling future. I am so excited to continue improving my work and become a better photographer every day. I would like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has given me the opportunity to work with you thus far - you'll never know what it means to me to be a part of your life. Hope you all have a fabulous week!

 

Love,

Ashley

Bethany + Chris 11.9.12 https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2012/11/bethany-chris-wedding So I had the pleasure of being a part of Bethany and Chris' Wedding day last Friday. Bethany was a beautiful bride, and their whole day was just a lot of fun. I had a hard time deciding which pictures to post for their preview, since there were so many that I liked! Anyways, I think I narrowed it down - so here are a few of my favorite shots of the day. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Weathers...I hope you enjoy!

Happy Holidays! https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2012/11/happy-holidays So I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but as always I am totally in Christmas Mode! When visiting my family in Peachtree City, we had a little fun with my Nieces and Nephew, and I think we got some super cute pics! Christmas Card maybe?

Kackleberry Farms https://www.ashleymarksphoto.com/blog/2012/11/kackleberry-farms So there is this place called Kackleberry Farms. It's only about 45 minutes away from us, and they apparently have a huge Zipline, Pumpkin Patch, Corn Maze, and tons of other fun fall activities. Well I have been dying to check out this place, and we finally made it down there this weekend. Philip and I headed out with his Mother, Brother, and our 4 year old niece, Katherine. Although it wasn't exactly what I was expecting, It was really nice to get to spend time outside with family. Ofcourse, I took my camera with me, and here are some of my favorite shots of the day....
