When I found myself dreaming of taking photos of the rooms I was creating instead of designing them I knew it was time to leave my career as a successful Interior Designer in Charlotte, North Carolina and full-on pursue my passion for photography.
An excited freelance photographer with a love for design, it wasn't until my own wedding that I understood how uncomfortable it is to be in front of the camera. The stakes are high and investing in the perfect photographer can feel like a huge risk. You don't know what to expect or who you can trust to capture the photos you've been dreaming of. And with all the different options out there it can feel overwhelming. It was after our wedding that I realized photos are the only thing that make your memories last and you should never look back at your life's moments with regret. You deserve to have photos you're obsessed with.

"In our 10+ years that Amin and I have been together NEVER has he said taking pictures was "not bad, easy, she is really great." WOW. You're not just gifted with the camera, you are gifted with people. THANK YOU!"
WHO'S INVESTED IN
Other photographers take little to no time to get to know their clients, shooting the same poses at the same locations day in and day out. They shoot for quantity, not quality and their clients get lack lustre photos with an experience that's run-of-the-mill.
Even if they do get to know their clients often they give them little to no direction in front of the camera, saying things like "stand out there and act natural". They lack the eye for what looks good, the feminine edge to style details or capture beautiful scenes and the personality to put clients at ease. The experience is awkward and uncomfortable and you leave the shoot disappointed, your time, investment and memories down the drain. I know because I've been there, and unfortunately some of my clients have been there with other photographers, too. Their photos never see the light of day and they wish they had invested in a photographer who was invested in them.
When working with Ashley Goodwin Photography we care about how you look (and feel!) in photos just as much as you do. I know exactly what looks good and use my designer's eye and strong attention to detail to create beautiful images that you'll look beautiful in. With expert direction you'll feel confident, look good and have photos that wow.
