Hi there, I’m Ashleigh, the photographer behind Red Aspen Photography. I love being a storyteller and a historian with a camera in hand. I always feel like I’m capturing history as it unfolds right in front of me. It’s a very special opportunity, which is why I feel honored to express these stories through images.
I am based in Boulder, Colorado, but travel all over for weddings! I grew up in Southern Oregon, and moved to Colorful Colorado a few years back. I love to incorporate the amazing landscape we have here. After all, there is a reason people choose Colorado as their wedding backdrop! I love the rich colors, tall canyons, alpenglow, and natural light. My focus is on my couples being comfortable in front of my camera (because the truth is…it takes some warming up to!) I am a directive photographer, which means I’m not putting you in poses or weird positions, but rather, give you directions and capture you being you. I want you two to be yourselves and I help you have a relaxed and fun time together, and forget about the camera.
My goal is to capture you and all your romantic, intimate and cute quirks, and hope those images will be seen by generation after generation.
On the wedding day, I want help you remember the smell of the air, the feel of the flowers, the noise from friends and family. I capture the details, the tears, the preparation, the kisses, the first looks, the handholding; all so that you will remember the feelings you had on that unforgettable day, for the rest of your lives.
I have been featured over 25 times in magazines and wedding blogs, and now I'm here for you.
