Adventure Wedding & Elopement Photography

Hi I’m Ashley Lee - An adventurous North Carolina Photographer exploring her home state and documenting adventurous love in epic places. I live full time in Jackson county North Carolina photographing adventure elopements and weddings from Tennessee to Florida and everywhere in between. I especially love Blue Ridge Pwky but am psyched to go wherever your love takes you. <3

I am my own team when it comes to adventure elopement &amp; portrait photography with a sprinkle of epic landscapes &amp; awe inspiring adventure. My photography style is adventurous &amp; full of life. I strive to capture you in an authentic way &amp; create photos filled with emotion and beauty. I’m an outdoor enthusiast, inspired by windy mountaintops. I do not believe there is such a thing as bad weather. How do you think the main photo came about?  ;)

North Carolina Adventure Weddings & Elopements

Adventure + Intimate + Emotional + Pure

There is something special about eloping in The Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway. They draw you in first with heir beauty and then with their moods. One of my favorite things about being an adventure photographer is the connection I get to build with you. I’ve found that by specializing in these intimate, outdoors-focused adventure wedding, elopements, and portraits, I get to know my clients on a deeper level. The adventures we go on, sweat and tears and all, the epic landscapes we explore - it’s awe inspiring and humbling. I am not just showing up and following a strict timeline, we’re all exploring and experiencing the wild windy mountains of North Carolina together. I believe the best way to serve you is to go beyond the beautiful photographs and give you a meaningful experience. Relationships matter ya’ll.

Do you….

  • …want your Wedding day be a true reflection of your relationship vs a big performance & production for everyone?

  • …want to enjoy every second of your adventurous elopement day without the stress, worry, or anxiety?

  • …know amazing it would be to have the day you promise your life to your soul mate be truly focused on you two and your relationship?

  • …to share your vows in complete intimacy, expressing your true genuine self without expectations, judgement, and opinions of an audience?

Ash is a dream. We were on the fence about doing a traditional wedding or an intimate destination wedding. After seeing her work it was so hard to imagine our wedding day any other way. We chose destination wedding and got eloped in Blue Ridge Pwky surrounded by family.

I’ve been following Ash for awhile now & when I got engaged I immediately reached out to her for Blue Ridge Pkwy Elopement and she said yes. I was over the moon. Such a dream to work with her and she is so kind and down to earth and completely passionate. Cried for all the moods that day <3
— Krysten and Joe
There are absolutely no words to describe the photos. We instantly fell in love with Ash’s adventure and style of photography. After reaching out our wedding day was finally here and it reaffirmed we chose the right girl. So sweet, made us feel so warm, and extremely comfortable. TLDR we got weird lol.

North Carolina Adventure portraits

High School & College Seniors, & Branding

Let’s go on an adventure somewhere in this magical state of ours.

I use all natural light, that means no flash, no studio lighting, and no reflectors. We shoot on location at whatever mountain we decide to conquer that day. We live in North Carolina, every day is an adventure here. But seriously, my photo shoots are always carefree and fun, with lots of movement, playing with hair, and laughter. I’m going to make you work and it’ll be so fun. I’ll show you pictures in between outfits and bonus you can bring a friend to really make you laugh. My goal is to make you comfortable enough to be slightly weird but still normal to show your true smile to friends and family. xoxo
