hi there and welcome
Finding a photographer is way harder than you would think — and I know you might be overwhelmed with how many there are. I am not here to just show up with a camera and shoot. It is way more than that, so I appreciate you taking the time to get to know me. My website is only a glimpse, shoot me a message and let’s connect.
happy to provide beautiful and timeless images to lovers in dallas, fort worth, wichita falls and surrounding areas
Thank you—for being here, for taking the time to get to know me, and for supporting me in my passion. I began this crazy journey as a college student in graphic design when a wise woman told me I would never make it without photography knowledge. Six short months after I picked up a camera, I started pursuing this wild dream and Astone Photography & Design was born. Thanks for joining me in this journey!
Fun Facts about ME:
fact 1 —
Speaking of "biggest fans," this is Travis. My husband, the love of my life, and my best friend. No one has supported and encouraged my absolutely crazy dreams and ideas like this guy. Not to mention no one has ever made me laugh as hard. This is my handsome mountain biking, youtube-watching, engineer of a hottie. You might catch him at a shoot or two with me.
fact 2 —
Sooooo... I used to not be a dog lover. I never had a pet growing up and was so not comfortable around animals, to the point where I asked clients NOT to bring them to shoots. Then, I had a huge change of heart and found these two on Craigslist. Say hello to Junie. B, my mini dorkie, named after my childhood icon and highkey spirit animal currently & Herbert, Junie B's mini dachshund best friend (in real life and in the books!). Life. Changed.
fact 3 —
I am family-oriented and family-focused to my very core. In my immediate family, I have 6 siblings, four sisters, two brothers (not all pictured), and one perfect niece (pictured)! This does not even include the wonderful members I inherited through marriage. I would travel the world and do anything for this group of people. They are my biggest fans.
fact 4 —
I have been a photographer for 6 years, but I have only had my business license for 4. So yes, while I have been shooting for 4 years, I would like to say I have professionally shot for 4. Hiring a professional is the most important decision you may ever make, so I am proud to say I compose myself as one, but also legally AM one. Rant over, ha!
My work has been featured in The Knot, WeddingWire, How They Asked, Voyage Dallas Magazine, and Shoutout DFW. A couple of those features ended in HUGE & exciting awards. HOW CRAZY IS THAT?! I love what I do and I am so thankful to be recognized by companies, magazines, and couples alike.
