Hello...IM Ashley. Your Personal Storyteller.


Oh hi there! I have a little story below about me! Feel free to read..or scroll down to the quick facts about me. Either way..... nice to 'meet' you!

 

oNCE UPON A TIME....

 

I LEFT MY SMALL TOWN IN THE MARITIMES AT THE TENDER AGE OF 20, DRIVING SEVEN HOURS TO MONTREAL. LITTLE WONDER I WAS DRAWN TO SUCH A MAGNIFICENT CITY. IT WAS SO DIFFERENT FROM WHERE I STARTED. A BIG DREAMER..... I ALWAYS WANTED TO LIVE in the hustle and bustle. THERE WAS SO MUCH MAGIC. TO SEE THE LIGHTS, TO WANDER THE STREETS, SMELL THE SCENTS AND HEAR THE SOUNDS. I WAS LOST IN MY OWN FAIRYTALE. I FELT LIKE I BELONGED. LIKE I COULD BE ME.

THE CITY EXPOSED WHAT WAS REALLY INSIDE OF ME... A BIGger 'me' THAT COULD DRAW PEOPLE IN AND HELP THEM TO FEEL LIKE THEY WERE AT HOME. NO MATTER WHERE HOME REALLY WAS. i wanted to give people the chance to share their love and connect in a way they never had before. But how?

Well, MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND BOUGHT ME MY FIRST SLR CAMERA WITHIN A COUPLE YEARS OF MARRIAGE. I WAS TERRIFIED. HOW DO I WORK THAT THING? I KEPT IT IN THE CORNER FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. NOT SURE WHERE TO START OR HOW TO GET TO KNOW THIS NEW 'CREATURE' LIVING IN MY HOME, SLOWLY BUT SURELY I STARTED TO TINKER. WE BECAME FRIENDS... AND EVENTUALLY BUDDIES. NO LONGER WAS IT THE MONSTROSITY I CONJURED IN MY MIND. 

THEN THE LIGHTBULB MOMENT.

I REALIZED WHAT I COULD DO WITH THIS MACHINE. I CAN CAPTURE MOMENTS. I HAVE POWER WITH THIS MACHINE. I CAN TELL A STORY, ANY STORY, AND MAKE IT COME ALIVE. I can share this with people. they show me their passion, i capture it. that was it!

but hold on.... it wasn't that easy. I'LL NEVER FORGET MY FIRST WEDDING... HIT HARD BY THE REALIZATION THAT I HAD TAKEN A HUGE LEAP, I ALMOST RAN THE OTHER WAY. BUT ... after talking myself through it, being my own cheerleader if you will i crawled out of that corner of fear and uncertainty...and guess what.

I LOVED IT.

THRIVING OFF THE ENERGY, EXCITEMENT AND ANTICIPATION. IT FELT LIKE THAT FIRST DAY IN THE CITY AGAIN. A ROLLERCOASTER RIDE...  THRILLING HAPPINESS, THE MAGIC WAS BACK. EVERY SINGLE WEDDING SINCE THEN HAS GIVEN ME THE SAME THRILL with a side of butterflies. I HAVE COME TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS WHAT PASSION IS. I HAVE FOUND MY DREAM IN THE SAME WAY THAT MONTREAL FELT LIKE MY DREAM HOME ALL THOSE YEARS AGO. EXPERIENCING REAL-LIFE FAIRYTALES IS MY 'THING'. THIS SMALL TOWN GIRL IS ALWAYS LOOKING TO GET LOST IN SOMEONE ELSE'S STORY.

YOUR STORY.

WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR WEDDING DAY, MY INTENTION IS TO CAPTURE YOUR connection. WHETHER IT BE ROMANTIC, FUN, GOOFY, SPONTANEOUS, YOU NAME IT. YOUR STORY IS MY CANVAS. THE PHOTOGRAPHS I TAKE ARE MY WAY OF GIVING YOU THE MOST IMPORTANT GIFT ON YOUR MOST IMPORTANT DAY – CHERISHED MEMORIES WITH AN EDGE. PHOTOS THAT HELP YOU RE-LIVE YOUR PRECIOUS WEDDING DAY. IMAGES THAT HAVE PRESENCE, GIVE AN IMPACT. STAND THE TEST OF TIME.

On that note, if you like what you hear and you think we'd be a good match....then I want to meet YOU.

That crazy girl up there?

Yeah...it's me. And my Awesome Hubs' ben.

I LOVE lobster. 

I change my hair often.... it may look like as you have seen above..or below. or neither.

I won "Most School Spirit" graduating year of high school. 

I love swimming as long as I can see through the water!

We've been married since 2006. He's THE most patient man on earth. Patience.... what is that though really? 

I'm always the last one on the dance floor, especially if it's old school 00's music.

When a little girl and asked 'what do you want to be when you grow up?" I confidently always replied " An alligator or a robot". 

Still working on bettering my robot.

Cinderella was my favorite movie as a little girl. No surprise there.

If I were to book a ticket to anywhere in the world right now, it would be London England. It's my fairytale city. what's yours?
