for the wildly in love

I am a natural light wedding and portrait photographer based in Temecula, California. I live for those in between moments behind my lens with each of my clients. When I don’t have my camera in my hand, I spend my time sipping coffee at my favorite local coffee shops, spending quality time with my husband and children, and adventure seeking while I search out the best restaurants to quench my foodie cravings (can you blame me?!). I look forward to working with you, let’s grab a cup of coffee soon. I will show you one of my favorite local joints! 

Hi there, I'm Kyrsten. 

I'm so glad you came to visit me! 

about me

1. family + Jesus.
2. a fresh cup of coffee during the day + a nice glass of red wine or handcrafted cocktail in the evening.
3. freshly cut flowers.
4. ice cream, sushi, pasta, cheese.
5. travels because it feeds my soul whether it is hopping on an airplane or in my own backyard.

I live for...

The Experience

Just call me your sixth bridesmaid. If you are looking for your traditional wedding vendor--I am not your cup of tea or whatever floats your boat. If you're looking for a friend(or)--then I am your girl. I am there every step of the way from planning your engagement session to creating a wedding day timeline. I help you choose a unique location that fits your style and outfit selection to help you feel comfortable and rock your engagement sesh. 

After, we'll start planning your timeline to ensure that you have enough time for all those important photos. Throughout the wedding day, I am often seen holding trains, bringing water to grandma, dancing with you+aunt Susie, or standing on chairs to get all those embarrassing dancing photos. 
 
But most importantly; I build relationships with all of my clients that turn into lasting friendships.

Love Notes

Kyrsten did my Wedding photos absolutely beautifully! Our original photographer cancelled us 3 days before our wedding, and then we found Kyrsten. She took the job, was professional, and ready to go. She made the whole experience fun, and my pictures show that.

Kyrsten is one of the most genuine photographers out there. Not only is she so sweet, she made the photo shoot so comfortable and so fun! She is so inspiring and passionate which definitely shows in her work. My son is hard to capture when he gets in one of his tantrum but Kyrsten was so good to him & so patient! She captured the photos of me and my son so beautifully! I truly recommend her. Her work is just as beautiful as she is and definitely worth every single dollar you spend!

Thank you Kyrsten for everything and giving your clients the feeling of love and special during the shoot!

As someone who is involved in pageantry, I have the opportunity to collaborate with numerous photographers, however, Kyrsten Ashlay Photography is by far one of my absolute favorites! Her adaptability, generosity, and creative eye make for some beautiful images! If you’re looking for some raw and original heartfelt photos, Kyrsten Ashlay is your girl! It was such a fun and light-hearted experience to work with Kyrsten and I would to love to work with her again in the near future!

Kyrsten is an absolute pleasure to be around! She made working in front and behind the camera so incredibly enjoyable. She’s all about making people feel as comfortable as possible so she’s able to capture your special moments to be remembered, as well as capturing your look for branding purposes.
You’ll definitely laugh so hard your cheeks will hurt while you’re around her! The fact that her work is amazing is the cherry on top!
