Hi, I'm Ashley!


Sunshine-Seeking, Living a life of purpose & praise in coastal florida

Inspired by all things that lead to adventure and delight; preferably near the water or amongst nature where the sunset feels within reach and all is calm. A decade as a Photographer has brought me to realize that the present moment is all that we have and the honor & joy of capturing that holy instant is priceless. I hope to make portraits that become an heirloom for generations to come...ones that are just the beginning of the remarkable journey ahead. My gift, your vision & the allowance of what happens in the middle is the magic of a wedding day.


Ashley Steeby Russell is based in St. Augustine, Fl and she lives with her husband James (15 years together!) and son Ollie.

Love Letters.....

“Ashley Steeby is LITERALLY the best. I am so, so glad that we hired her for our wedding in September! Our experience with her from the start was wonderful. They truly make you feel very comfortable in front of the camera and make it fun. My husband and I both agree that one of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Ashley.”

“Ashley & James are an amazing duo! They are fun, light-hearted, and keep you comfortable in front of the camera. From the engagement session to the wedding day, the photos were truly some of the best I’ve ever seen (I may be bias, but I’ve been in my fair share of weddings!). They do a wonderful job of catching the special moments of the day and the love in the air! Ashley’s sense of style and eye for photography are remarkable.”

—Chelsea & Carson

“Ashley and James are the creme de la creme of wedding photography. Their talent of not only capturing the obvious wedding shots but capturing those little details and special moments you never knew you wanted. They are effortless in gently directing you and your partner and family members to capture the genuine candid moments you will cherish forever. Ashley and James are incredibly responsive, kind, accommodating, and professional but also a joy to have on your wedding day as their presence is so relaxing”
