Best of 2018 + 2019 Business Goals

The Press Espresso, Temecula, California Branding Session · Kyrsten Ashlay Photography

2018. I don’t even know where to begin. 2018 was a huge, exciting, life changing year. 2018 is when I found my editing style,  my voice within the photography community, my posing style, and started focusing on couples + weddings. 2018 has brought me so many wonderful relationships and connections thanks to the wonderful platform of Instagram. I have been able to work along side some incredible creatives from Vee Taylor Photography, Amber Linn Photography, Owl Creek Farms, Something Lettered, Ox and Nag, the Kilted Cake, the Love Sparrows, and so many more.

I am truly blessed everyday that this is my job and I get to form these connections with all of my couples + clients. I find it surreal that I am able to call this my career and I am able to do this full flippin’ time. I would have never imagined last year when I announced I was going full time that this would be my reality. I cannot thank each and every one of you enough. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for entrusting me to be apart of your story and allowing me the opportunity to capture your magical moments. I feel so incredibly blessed and honored for all those who have invested in me, all those friendships that have been created, and those who have supported, believed, and rooted for me.

If 2018 was this good, I seriously cannot fathom what is in store for 2019. I have a feeling 2019 is going to be even better! I can’t wait to photograph all my amazing brides this year!

2019 Business Goals:

  • Travel More! I will be in Detroit, Michigan in August + Huntsville, Alabama in September, if you would like to book something while I am there let’s do the damn thing–send me a e-mail today!
  • Capture 20 weddings–I currently need FIVE more before I hit my goal.
