ASHTON LEIGH PHOTOGRAPHY

MICHIGAN BASED INTIMATE WEDDING & ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER SERVING THE GREAT LAKES & BEYOND

HEY THERE! I'm ASHTON

I photograph devoted, romantic souls who get an effortless photography experience, their very first family album preserving their everlasting love, and joy filled memories to last a lifetime.

FAST FACTS ABOUT ME

"The purpose of art is not a rarified, intellectual distillate - it is life, intensified, brilliant life." ~Alain Arias-Mission

I've loved people and their memoirs for as long as I can remember. My Mema was the virtuosa of storytelling and I have her to thank for my love of art and the adventure that is life.

Growing up, I would find myself captivated instantly as she narrated. Her love story was certainly one you could never forget.

Together we'd find ourselves opening her worn keepsake albums and travel back in time to countless moments with lots of tears & gut laughter. 

There is something to be said about the power of holding a printed photograph, especially in this digitally focused world. Memories are meant to be loved, cherished, and passed on.

Stories are an essential part of us. Stories bring families closer together. Through them love grows deeper. Where we remember our foundations and values. A legacy of love preserved for me and you.

MY STORY

I want to give you the gift of telling your story beautifully through an heirloom album to treasure for a lifetime and build moments of love, belonging, and connection with those you love most. 

I've heard it once said,
"we are the most documented generation in history with no physical proof."

Your legacy of love is meant to be told, preserved and held closely by you and your loved onces as you gently turn the pages together.

FOR THE ROMANTICS

You desire an unparalleled photography experience but feel as though it's unattainable. Your budget is tight and you want to invest in moments that matter. You want an effortless photography experience that works with your budget without compromising luxurious quality.

You want a photographer you can trust to help make your vision come to life. You want to be fully present on your wedding day and take in every moment. You crave images that make you feel. To have honest and authentic imagery that captures the true essence of your love. 

You're quickly realizing that social media is not an album. You want to tell your story beautifully. To walk into your forever home, walls adorned with timeless moments that take you back to those exact emotions and feelings. 

To snuggle up with your husband, future kids, or grandbabies someday and build moments of love, belonging, and connection as you retell your love story again and again.
