    Hi! I'm Ashley, and I'm a fine art wedding and boudoir photographer living and shooting in New England! I live in Deerfield with my husband, daughter, and beagle, and love all things New England. I hope you enjoy the studio blog, where you can see my most current work. If you're interested in more information about my studio, feel free to contact me at ashleyhelenphotography@gmail.com. Also, you can get a daily dose of our work by following along through Instagram!

It’s the BEST time of year for a New Hampshire engagement session, and I had an absolutely perfect afternoon with Margaret and David last weekend! When a couple brings their ukelele…you know it’s going to be good! We are almost at the one year mark for their wedding day, and I can’t wait for next fall!!

Phillips Exeter Academy served as the setting for Hannah and David’s classic New England Wedding last weekend. The historic stone church on campus was timeless and elegant. Hannah and David were celebrated with the majestic sounds of the pipe organ, and the regal voice of Reverend Robert Thompson. His melodic, baritone voice quite literally brought me and several others to tears in the most beautiful way imaginable.

I don’t think it is possible for a bride to look more stunning than Hannah did on her wedding day, and the joy that radiated from both her and David was incredible to watch. I could not be more happy for these two!

When I first met Kayla and Nick, they had just gotten engaged and were bursting with excitement! We went to the spot where Nick had proposed, and had an incredible time. I loved getting to know these two!

Their bright and colorful wedding style fit their lighthearted, joyful personalities so perfectly! They had a fun and lively celebration on the farm, with their incredibly sweet friends and family. Not even the intense summer heat could stop everyone from truly enjoying the festivities! I hope you enjoy these photos, and you must check out the incredible grounds at Stone Brook Hill Farm! It was like a dream!

As the sun went down, the bonfire was lit for roasting marshmallows… Which is basically the BEST part of summer!!

This weekend I shot a lovely wedding at the Manchester Country Club. It was filled to the brim with classic, elegant touches, and every time I turned my head I found myself saying “Oh, that’s my favorite!” From the sprigs of greenery swept across the beautifully calligraphed escort cards, to the blush accents amongst ivory bouquets, to the candle-lit centerpieces, every last flourish depicted timeless elegance.

I am always in awe of the way a couple’s love is so evident. It has a way of just radiating, and this is absolutely the case with Val and Doug! The sweet glances Doug gave his bride all night were heartwarming, and the way Val lit up when she saw her fiancé at the end of the aisle was endearing. Val and Doug, I am SO happy for you both, and I enjoyed every second of your wedding day! Congratulations!
