DO YOU HAVE AN ART DEGREE?
In fact, I do! I was incrediably lucky enough to attend one of the most artistic schools we have here in Pittsburgh!
I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Photography.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
First and foremost I consider myself a story teller. I like to capture my couple's sessions and weddings with a very photo journalist approach. Its important for me to tell your story the way I see it. Its also important for me to capture the raw and emotional moments as their happening. Moments that might have been overlooked.
WHAT WORDS WOULD YOU USE TO DESCRIBE YOUR ART?
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER YOU USE CONSISTENTLY?
I do. Meet Stefan!
Stefan is the the Associate Shooter for Ashley Reed Photography, as well as business partner.
We are a husband and wife team.
I think its important to use the same person for every wedding. That way I can ensure my brand/style of shooting/teamwork stays consistent.
Throughout the years, I've found that we work really well together. He's extremely personable, reliable, and our styles of shooting are very similar. Stefan also comes to the engagement sessions as well. This way, you guys will get to interact with him and learn his style of shooting prior to the Wedding!
DO YOU HAVE BACK UP SECOND SHOOTERS YOU USE IN CASE THE ASSOCIATE SHOOTER IS SICK?
We've never missed a wedding yet! ( KNOCK ON WOOD ) We know how important your special day is to you - so unless its a real true emergency like an unexpected car accident, a major surgery, or a death in the family you can count on us!
