It’s finally here!!! After years of shooting thousands of images with my camera I am proud to welcome you to my official Lady Ashley Photography website. For me, my love of photography began back in the old school film days when I was a junior.

Upon graduation from high school I enlisted and served six honorable years in the United States Air Force. During my time in the military I was recognized for many medals, awards, such as BTZ, Diagnostic Imaging Airman of the Year (AMC), Humanitarian medal, and Achievement Medal. It wasn’t until I was working as a model and talent agent in St. Louis after being discharged that I found my true calling as an artist.

I remember the day I started shooting digital photography in this fancy new DSLR stage, I was testing models for my agency. At the end of the day the experienced photographer who was helping me out told me upon review of my images that I should keep shooting, and since that day I have never put the camera down. That was over ten years ago now.

Since my decision of separating from the military to pursue my education and artistic aspirations, as a model I have been featured in television and internet commercials, music video’s, print in multiple magazines and covers, runway, on billboards, movies and promotional work.

From there my partner and I built a name for our family and commercial photography business (Evoli Photography) having photographed over 2,500 families + from weddings, newborn photos,  to many of those most precious moments in life. As of 2019, I have added Press Photojournalist to my resume.

Now I combine the years of experience and expertise of which I have learned throughout my modeling career and I am proud to be what you can call a “model turned photographer”.  I take a lot of pride with helping my models get published,  or artist their new single cover and enjoy working with men and women from all walks of life.

I am a full time photographer running my own photography companies in the St. Louis area and am here to help you take the next step in your personal self investment.
