Wedding Week: Meet Krista Ashley

Hiya! I’m Krista, a California gal on the verge of moving across the world to Australia to photograph more love. I found my way to the path of weddings while attending art school, where in the beginning I had no idea what I wanted to shoot. All I knew was that photography was in my bones and that I had to pursue it.

Wedding Week: Be inspired by Elizabeth Wells

Hi there! My name is Beth and I've owned and operated my photography business, Elizabeth Wells Photography, for the past 8 years. Photography for me started as a basic interest which grew into a passion when my husband and I decided to start a family together. Being able to work and provide for my family while also having a flexible schedule as a new mom was so important to me. It's the best thing that I could have ever done for myself and my family.

Wedding Week: Say 'hello' to Kristen Weaver

Hi! I'm Kristen Weaver! I truly can't remember a time when I wasn't taking pictures. I remember begging my mom to take my little 35mm film rolls to get developed and I'd create albums of random horrible captures from middle school. Thankfully my technique improved and I made it more of a hobby in college - starting a mini photography business for my sorority sisters during my senior year. It eventually turned in to my full time profession in 2009 after getting laid off from my marketing job.

Wedding Week: Hi there, Dan DeWaard

Hi Dan. We are big fans. Can you tell us about your photography journey?
If you want the raw (pun intended) answer, it was because I was going through a hardship. In response, I found it therapeutic to take photos in my parents' woods. It started with pics of nature and wildlife, and over a few months, I fell in love with photography. Up to that point in my life, I had never considered myself artistic then I challenged myself by shooting simple items with the goal of making them interesting until I learned the basic principles of photography. I am self-taught using YouTube and Kelby Training, in combination with trial and error.
