ashley pesata

Hi! I’m Ashley. I’m married to my best friend, Dj, who you will probably see helping me shoot and carry all my bags at weddings. He puts up with a lot of crazy ideas from me and doesn’t care that I am constantly rearranging all the furniture in our house. We have SIX kids- yep, SIX! Two sets of twins and two kiddos in between, which makes for days full of adventures and baskets full of laundry. Day to day rarely looks the same in our home, and our life is a little crazy and a lot of fun. The one constant in our lives is Jesus- so whatever it is we are doing, we do for His glory.

As I documented my children’s lives I became passionate (and sometimes obsessive) about capturing life. Being able to share this with my clients is one of the greatest blessings in my life. The pictures that I take are more than just images to me. I pour my heart into every session and wedding because I believe that there are few things in the world more precious than photographs. Time is something we can never get back and is never guaranteed to us. I don't take lightly that every moment I am invited to capture I take as invitation to preserve some of the most precious moments in your life. I am honored each time a client choses me to document their days!

Ashley has done my engagement, wedding, newborn and family photos. She continually blows me away with the special moments she captures. A true professional!

Ashley was our photographer for our wedding and her and her husband, DJ made a great team! She was amazing to work with and has such a great eye for a good photo. She made sure to have great photo’’s taken on my wedding day. I got married on a Friday and there was an Indians game playing downtown. She thought it would be amazing if we got a photo with the fireworks in the background of the photo at nighttime and she was literally stalking the game on her phone to get the timing right for the fireworks! That right there shows dedication to what she is passionate about. We are so thankful for these amazing memories that Ashley has put together for us! Highly recommend her for your wedding!

We’ve been so lucky to have Ashley as our photographer for everything from our engagement, wedding, newborn, and family photos. I’m never disappointed and cherish the memories she was able to capture for us. The sessions are always very easy going and laid back, even my 2.5 year old has fun! We are forever customers :)
