ashley izquierdo ||nyc + tampa wedding photographer
Before I became Ashley Izquierdo – Wedding Photographer/ #girlboss, I was Ashley Izquierdo – Restaurant Manager. I’m an Instagram loving, adventure seeking, Backstreet Boy fanatic. I was working 50+ hours a week and in school for photography. I was bored out of my mind at work. I was shooting weddings on the side. I’ve always been a creative person who loves to hustle. I loved meeting couples, getting to know their stories, and delivering an over-the-top experience for them.
I would go to work and think about the wedding I shot on Saturday night. I would get home from work and edit photos, answer emails, and research how to market myself better. I loved it. But I was so terrified to leave something that felt so safe and stable.
And then? I had my daughter Hazel. She ignited a fire in me—I was consumed by my love for her. I wanted to give her the world from the second I met her. But I couldn’t do that by working at a job that I wasn’t passionate about. I needed to show her how to take the world.
Ultimately, I quit my 9-5 and was able to pursue photography full time. I doubled my weddings that first year. Then I tripled them. And now I’m shooting a wedding almost every weekend of the year. I’m really proud of this business. But more than that, I’m proud to show my daughter what it looks like to embrace your strength and work for the things you want.
I bring all of this passion and fire to every wedding I photograph. I’m not here to give you pretty photos. I’m here to give you an unforgettable experience that means the world to me.
Lets be friends! Once you book, I encourage you to be apart of my life. So find me and adventure together.INQUIRE
