Growing up, there was a photograph of my dad that sometimes sat on my dresser. I say sometimes because periodically my sister would steal it and put it or her dresser. Until I stole it back. Photographs were really important to my family, a cherished, gift. Photographs means a lot to my family. A way to remember the things we never wanted to forget.
Our dad passed away when I was 6 and she was 4 In the 8o's, people just didn't take photos as easily or often as they do now. You don't truly understand the value of a photograph until its all you have left. My mission as a photographer is to help people be present and actually enjoy the relationships and moments that matter most and to tell their stories as authentically and deeply as possible so they may never forget. (Oh and and don't worry. We did eventually think to make a copy of the photo of my dad).
It was Christmas and I didn’t want to work, but I put my camera in the car anyway When we lost my grandmother I couldn’t have been more grateful that my mom made me bring it. I went through all the photos we had from her life and there was only 1 Photograph where almost everyone was there.
Your wedding might be the only time in your lifetime that all the people you love are ever together in the same place.
Losing someone so important to me changed how I document stories and reminded me why any of this matters. It was never all the pretty things (pictures). It’s all the once in a lifetime memories you’re making. This is what makes me different from other photographers. My process is focused on who matters the most. So take a deep breath, go make some memories. I’ll tell your stories, the ones that really matter.

Success is a journey not a destination
Never stop creating, learning and evolving
Find joy in everything, even the smallest of things
My son, Nikolai, the funniest, sweetest little boy i know.
My sweet boyfriend, Dan who always gives me the last piece of pizza (cause, love).
Asha went above and beyond for our special day. From the first time we met with her I instantly knew she was going to be our perfect match. My favorite part was seeing the shots that I didn't even know she was taking. Asha by far did an amazing job and I would highly recommend her. Especially if you would like a laid back, stress free and fun but very romantic wedding day. She's the ONE!!!
Asha was amazing on the day of my wedding. When I started to get overwhelmed she was there to calm me down and remind me that everything was going to be perfect. She was well organized and knew exactly what to do, which was extremely helpful when it came down to taking the pictures and getting them done in a timely manner. I was so blessed to have her there with me on my special day. Not only was she amazing, but the pictures from my wedding day were stunning and we felt SO COMFORTABLE, thanks to her! Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
She not only took many wonderful pictures but also kept me sane. She literally ensured that I was doing okay throughout the day. She puts the bride first throughout the wedding day. I can't say enough how great my experience was and how pleased I was. If you want a wonderful skilled photographer and an all around wonderful person go with Love, Asha Photography you won't regret it. The memories captured were priceless.
