I'm Ashley Ricci, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Asheville, NC, serving Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee but I'm always open to travel! At Ashley Ricci Photography, I love to capture everything from intimate moments to the biggest events!  


As the photographer of Ashley Ricci Photography, I am so delighted that you have stopped by! Since I am originally from Mississippi, I love all  things southern, from sipping sweet tea on my front porch to blossoming Magnolias and I'm also always down for a large slice of pecan pie (or anything sweet for that matter)!  I've always had a passion for art, and this desire has taken me from simply studying it in school to wanting to put it into action through photography.  

Through my love and study of art, I am able to use my creative eye to take photos that will capture your special moments. I adore rich colors and contrast in photos.  I love shooting detailed shots which allows the intricacy to be captured and remembered for years. Through my photography, I enjoy connecting to my clients personally, which allows me to make lifelong friendships with families.  Needless to say, photography is now my life and I wouldn't want it any other way!

Hey Y'all!




This was the first time our 13-year-old twins actually enjoyed having their pictures taken! Ashley was patient and encouraged them to just be themselves, resulting in photographs that made us laugh and cry because the pictures told their story perfectly. She captured their individual personalities and the true sibling love they have for eachother. We are beyond thrilled with the photos and we will be returning again and again!

the pictures told their story perfectly

Ashley was phenomenal photographing my wedding! She got every picture I could imagine and more! She was so good with all the kids and stayed to make sure she didn’t miss anything! She will make a fantastic wedding photographer!

every picture I could imagine

Ashley was so much fun to work with! We had our fall photos taken in downtown Asheville on busy Saturday evening and she knew exactly where to shoot from to get all the best angles and photos with no other people in the backgrounds! Very impressive! I would definitely recommend her!

very impressive

Ashley is wonderful! She did my engagement shoot and will be taking photos for my wedding as well. The engagement photos came out amazing and I love them (wedding is next year)! She also made the actual photo shoot day fun and not awkward. It was so easy to fall into conversation with her as if she was a life long friend. Would highly recommend!!
