Celebrating Asheville’s ASE Photography

image

This August marks my third year as ASE Photography, my photography business which focuses on capturing the character and personality of my subjects. It’s certainly been fun to watch my photography skills and portfolio grow. Living in Asheville, I’ve enjoyed some amazing opportunities to work with other local artists and business people who have helped me improve my art and expand my brand. In celebration, I wanted to share some of my favorite work with the wonderful people of this artistic Asheville community which has helped start ASE Photography. Below are some examples of my favorite work, enjoy and thanks!

I worked my first wedding for a teammate in December 2012 and immediately fell in love with the style of photography as weddings are the perfect fit for my aesthetic of capturing love and genuine emotions. Visit my wedding site to see more wedding photos.

When Jaimie of JaimieMollie.com came to me asking if I could take photos for her fashion blog, I delightedly accepted. This led to a beautiful partnership and a lot of fun hunting through Asheville for creative places to shoot.

Last winter, I joined the Orange Peel House Photography team. Great live music AND photography? What’s not to love.

I’ve always loved interior design, so when my friend asked me to photograph her home capturing its essence for promotion on Airbnb, I jumped at the chance. Not two weeks later, I started working for Morehouse Interiors in photography and social media and have loved every minute of it.

Joining the Ask Asheville team has offered me the chance not only to see and learn more about this beautifully unique city, but also to connect with numerous local business people. I’m looking forward to continuing my work with Gary as Ask Asheville’s signature photographer.

Being a summer intern for The Laurel of Asheville meant getting my work – both photography and writing – published for the first time, and what a whirlwind it was.

The upcoming school year also marks my third year as head photographer for the UNC Asheville Athletic Department. As a UNCA cross country and track athlete and sports enthusiast, photographing my fellow Bulldogs never feels like work.

Finally, I have found my photographic “voice” illustrating the necessity of art in all our lives. The photo above is from my latest project documenting my personal experiences in places that are overly photographed, such as the beach, using multiple exposure on film. You can read more about the project on my blog, Seriously-creative.blogspot.com.

I hope you have enjoyed a taste of my work. Feel free to contact me at aseartistry10@gmail.com to set up a photo shoot. Or visit my online gallery to order from some of my favorite images I’ve taken in my photographic adventures.

Asheville Photography with Audrey Goforth

I came in touch with an Asheville area photographer named Audrey Goforth many years ago and glad I did. One of the first questions she asked me was “how do I get involved in all of this social media stuff?” My question to her was “how do I get some pro photography to enhance my business branding and my personal portfolio?” After meeting and dealing with Audrey a couple of times, I knew she was a keeper, as many of you can attest to.

Audrey Goforth Photography is actually getting ready to celebrate their 17th year in business. She loves to do weddings, family and individual photos. In the past few years, we have personally hired her for numerous family photo sessions; and also as the “Photographer of Choice” for many of our clients. When our business calls us out of town, Audrey is always ready to travel. I have bumped into her at so many local Asheville area events, we talk for a moment, then she walks away taking photos, and I walk away tweeting.

While Audrey was taking photos of us yesterday at the Grove Park Inn, I took the photo of her above. If you are looking for a photographer that is based in the Asheville NC area, you definitely need to check out Audrey Goforth Photography.
