Everyday, I look at my husband and daughters, and think to myself — how lucky am I to live this blessed life. And it all started because two people took a chance; we took the greatest risk of all, by promising one another ourselves. We made that choice then, and we still make that choice daily. I choose you, Grizzly Bear — even when you leave your dirty clothes everywhere but in the laundry basket <3.
— Mrs. Meier (AKA Your Black Bear)

After 6+ Years of shooting weddings, I have discovered what my ideal clients truly want and what I personally enjoy shooting. Our relationship is like a marriage, so of course it's important that we vibe and that our values align. I spend so much time with you on your wedding day and throughout your wedding planning experience, that we really do turn into best friends. 

My Clients Tend TO 

Be Playful
They're not afraid to smile, laugh, dance and booty shake all in the name of LOVE. 

Be Spontaneous
They know that wedding days can be crazy -- but most importantly they just want to have fun and get great pictures.

Be Gracious
 They're grateful for all of the support they've been given by family and friends, and grateful to have found the love of their life.

Love Natural Light
They appreciate the beautiful golden sun and all that natural lighting has to offer for outdoor portraits. 

Be Fairly Detail Oriented
They love beauty, flowers and communication. I'm a huge communicator -- I would rather over communicate vs. Under communicate.

Think Photography is the bombdiggity
Out of everything in their wedding, photography tends to get a chunk of the budget because they value heirlooms for generations to come. Flowers die, dresses are only worn once, and you barely get to taste the food or cake on your wedding day, but your photographs and memories last forever.

Ashley captured our wedding memories perfectly! The photos were beautiful! She captured the emotions and highlights of the day/night. The pictures from start to finish told the story of our wedding. When working with Ashley, we felt comfortable and were able to take the kind of pictures that suited our personalities. The session was very timely, so we were able to get back to the celebration without even being missed! Ashley listens carefully and brings such a cool, new vibe to photography. We were absolutely 100% satisfied. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer!

What can I say; of course everyone thinks of their own wedding as the most beautiful wedding ever! But to be honest, that day everything is so overwhelming that there is not really time to think of all those wonderful moments and details. It takes a while… Therefore, you will need a photographer that understands you and your idea of the wedding, one that even flies out to Germany when you ask her. One that you won´t notice that day but is always nearby you when you need her. All of this is Ashley Meier!

When you see the wedding pictures for the first time, it feels like you are right back in that moment. Just like a second wedding day. What can you wish more for? Ashley Meier made it possible to even have a better second wedding day through her beautiful pictures. She paid so much attention to all the little details, which we just oversaw that day. She gave us the chance to catch up with everyone else’s emotions. And the best part; she just made us look like the most beautiful people ever on this planet! The way she chose the angles or spots are incredible.

Thank you so much for one of our biggest treasures!

From the first meeting with Ashley she was professional, kind, and made sure all deadlines were met. She has several tips for ensuring a smooth wedding day and her polite, but commanding presence to get the cats herded to the right place at the right time is very valuable. I loved our final photos- her style is creative, yet classic. I highly recommend Ash Meier photography for your wedding day!!
