About Me

I’m an artist, and the camera is my paintbrush, the world my canvas. Capturing memories for other people is something special for me and those people I photograph. When a Marine breaks from formation after not seeing his family for seven months, and his daughter runs to him for the first time, there is a joy to be captured with my camera. Those photographs will be cherished and remembered for the rest of their lives. A couple in love with each other, a one year old enjoying their very first (and messy) taste of birthday cake, a growing family.

Special memories that can last forever. It’s an odd thing to say, but I truly enjoy photographing people. Giving them something that they will treasure for a lifetime. That is what I do. This is what I love to do. I am a photographer.

I did not start the journey to becoming a professional photographer by picking up a camera. It sounds odd, but really the first step I took toward professional photography was enrolling in college. Like a lot of photographers I know, I was the photographer for my high school year book, I was always taking pictures myself. I earned my degree in Photographic Technologies in 2013 with high honors. The knowledge led a great foundation for me to build my skills and style.

Ashley Rescott Photography has now been in three states; North Carolina, where I got my start, Florida for a very brief time, and I am currently located in Fredericksburg, Virginia and offering sessions in Riviera Beach, Maryland.
