2015 was a year of a lot of soul searching… which given that I had a baby last year, it makes total sense that I wanted to evaluate all aspects of my life. I came to some conclusions about the direction of my business and brand, what I wanted to be doing with my time, and what I did not. I attended another live workshop by my hero Sue Bryce and wrote some major, scary, but exciting decisions on paper… And this year, 2016, has been making them all come to life!!

So I am being very cryptic but letting you know that the “Ashleigh Taylor” brand is being updated and the big unveiling is Monday! Yes, like as in 48 hours from now. I can’t wait to show you what I am working on and share our new changes to the business with you. As always thanks to everyone who supports me– I know some of you have been around for 7 years (the very beginning). You are very loved and appreciated and I hope you will go with me on this journey into Ashleigh Taylor 2.0 …

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:

Sunstone Villa Wedding Photography

 

Abby + Tanner were married the day after New Year’s at Sunstone Villa! Now, I have photographed many weddings at the beautiful Sunstone Villa over the last four years, but this wedding was a first! I have never shot at a wedding at the Villa in January…or really any winter month! So this wedding is a little bit different than all my other Villa weddings you have seen of mine… but oh boy was it really pretty!

The sky was gray and the air was chilly and crisp, but the light, ooooh the light, was incredible! The vines were bare but the remaining branches created lines and shapes that were beautiful and bare. There was a tent— smartly so— because it was windy and way too cold to dine and dance under the stars. But there was still an amazing backdrop of the Villa. The berry-red and white color palette was festive, and went along with the holidays (because on January 2nd things still should feel festive). It was without a doubt gorgeous.

But the best part of the day was of course Abby and Tanner. Could there be a couple any cuter? They were high school sweethearts and they were  so thrilled to be becoming man and wife. And their families were pretty adorable too. I honestly could shoot their wedding every single weekend and be stoked, because they are that awesome and the wedding was that lovely!!

Thank you to Kelsey for 2nd shooting! Thanks to Scott Topper for rockin’ the dj booth. And as always thanks to Sunstone for being one of the best places to shoot a wedding, no matter the time of year!

Check out their wedding below:

sogno del Fiore wedding photography

I can’t even believe I am just now blogging this shoot! It’s kind of an Ashleigh Taylor “vintage” by now! LOL! So yes, this shoot is about 2 years old but it’s still fabulous and deserves to be celebrated. This shoot was a collaboration with Hint of Chic and Haute Catering for the (what was then brand new) wedding venue Sogno Del Fiore. Sogno is a gorgeous winery property and perfect if you are looking for a beautiful outdoor wedding in Santa Ynez!

We wanted to show the property off in a unique way for this shoot so we came up with a Moroccan theme. I LOVE all things Moroccan design so this shoot was a total dream for me! And apparently 100 Layer Cake agreed because they featured it on their site as well!

Between the lush colors of the design, the textural flowers, and the yummy middle eastern cuisine this shoot is definitely not your average vineyard wedding inspiration! So check it out and feast with your eyes.

And if you are getting married in 2016 at Sogno Del Fiore, I’d love to chat with you! This is such a great venue and I am thrilled to be a preferred vendor here!

When I shoot a boudoir shoot I like to capture all the different sides to a woman. Her soft side, her bold side, her relaxed side, her carefree side. I find a woman’s different moods and expressions to all be sexy in their own unique way. Not every look has to be about strapping on the garters and stilettos… But then again, we shouldn’t let a whole shoot go by without really being brave with one super sexy look should we?

I love this shoot because there are so many moods captured the bold and daring to the soft and intimate. And dang if my client doesn’t just have LEGS FOR DAYS!

Are you interested in having me capture all the sides that make up your sexiness? If so shoot me an email, I’d love to chat!
