Hi! I'm Brittney Paczkowski, Owner & Photographer of Brittney Ashton Photo. I have been photographing weddings for over 12 years. Fun fact, I never intended to be a wedding photographer. I had a friend from high school that wanted me to photograph her wedding because she had seen some of my work online; which was only photos of my pets, flowers. and insects. I quickly declined because I had no business photographing weddings. I knew weddings were a once in a lifetime type of thing. But, she believed me and talked me into photographing hers. Her exact words were, "You have 5 months to practice, you are going to do great." Well she was right! I shot her wedding in May of 2010 and never looked back.
Weddings, are once in a lifetime type of a thing. I treat each wedding as if it was my own. Choosing a photographer can be on the toughest things on your list. It's important to me to build lasting relationships with my clients. I accept a limited number of bookings each in order to devote the amount of and attention that each of my couples deserve.
My approach to photographing your wedding is simple: keep things as real as possible. I understand and appreciate the amount of effort that you put into planning your social day and I want to capture all the important details you have worked so hard to perfect. Everyone's special day is different and I treat each one as such.
Your photographs should convey a sense of life and reflect who you are. Simply stated, it's about telling your story through beautiful photographs.
When I'm not photographing, I spend my time with my family, husband, two bonus daughters, friends, two German Shepherd, and two cats. I'm an avid overlander and love camping. I'm always up for an adventure, love to travel, and especially destination weddings!
