I believe we've upped the ante, @lilliangraycharles 😏😆 Thanks for the feature, @kitandace!

I'm itchin' to create some mile-high work. See ya at @ladyjonesdenver + @denverstylemagazine on Thursday night 😉😉
Hi! It’s a Good Friday to do a first #fridayintroductions and because I’m not a rule-follower, I’m mixin’ it up a bit with an adventure theme. 😉 I’m Ashton Songer Ferguson and I’m a people-smitten, world-traveling photographer with a knack for havin’ a blast. 1️⃣I’m an expert traveler. I’ve been to 36 states and 12 countries and counting. Travel and experiencing new places and cultures is where I thrive—mind, body and soul.🛫 2️⃣I lived and studied in Morocco in 2012 and regularly return to visit my sweet family there. I learned Moroccan Arabic when I moved to a village where I wouldn’t hear English for days and days.🇲🇦 3️⃣In 2016, I took a spontaneous 3-day trip to the Middle East where I photographed the Palestine Marathon for the Washington Post alongside my incredible journalist friend and fellow Tar Heel @jhkantor. We have a great story about leaving Israel and I have a menacing passport sticker to go with it. 🛂 4️⃣My husband and I embark on an epic backpacking trip every year. Our list so far: the Italian Dolomites on our honeymoon, the Canadian Rockies (Jasper and Banff) and Chilean Patagonia.🏔🏕🎒 5️⃣And in the spirit of travel and adventure, I’m MOVING!! To DENVER, COLORADO! After a heck of a lot of years of daydreamin’ and schemin’, Thomas and I are watching our longtime dream of heading west unfold. We both knew ages ago that our souls are meant for the Rocky Mountain air and all that it has to offer. That means Ashton Songer Photography is along for the glory ride, too! I’m pumped to announce a special treat for a few of my lucky future clients in Colorado👏🏽✨🦄💕: I’m gifting three adventure sessions and three reduced rate weddings to new Colorado-based clients! One wedding has already been swiped up, so only two weddings and three portraits left! Raise your hand if you wanna know more! 🙋🙋♂️Not in Colorado or not looking for couples portraits or wedding photography? Tag your friends who are—if you refer a client, there’s a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ in it for you, too.🍾🍻🎉🎁
Photography is for exploring.
Because it's your birthday, @dallas_watson55, and I'm reliving @frontierranch. LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!! 😘😘😘
Best, best job. Today I got to photograph little Evan Reid, who is truly growing like a weed! I can't believe tomorrow is two weeks since I documented his debut! I've loved being able to build my business on incredible relationships and amazing moments. And I'm so thankful for my awesome clients who make it possible for me to journey through life with them, at every touch point of this adventurous life.
Happy accidents. :) I've been perfecting my form on my @fujifilmx_us xpro2 and yesterday I worked with my first roll of film on my papa's old canon 35mm. Can't wait to see how it all turns out!! Thanks for being awesome, @colleen_c_h and Michael!
Had a BLAST romping around in the snow with these cuties today! Michael and Colleen are already married, but there are always plenty of reasons for investing in great photos. Plus, post-wedding you’re basically a pro at being in front of the camera. So take advantage of those fun reasons and big milestones like anniversaries, moving, babies and other awesome adventures. Or in Michael and Colleen’s case, just a fun Colorado ski vacay with friends. :) Speaking of milestones, moving and adventures...have you heard?! WE ARE MOVING! To Denver, Colorado! To celebrate this milestone dream achieved in our lives and for Ashton Songer Photography, I’m offering a SICK moving promo. More details to come, but suffice to say if you or your friends are getting engaged or married in Colorado you’ll ABSOLUTELY want to stay tuned.
Birth is the most beautiful thing I've ever encountered in my life and I'm not even a mother yet. And it's one of the greatest privileges in my career to be invited in and entrusted to document such tender moments between families, raw and unscripted. Here, big brother Brooks reaches over to cover his new baby brother, Evan, in the moments after birth. Congratulations to the Weimers and their newest addition, Evan Reid, born yesterday at 8:38am, hours before I boarded my 1:00 flight to Colorado! Feeling so thankful for this wonderful season of all things new.
I see this shadow every afternoon when the sun is just right, beaming down Brady St. onto Howell Mill right across from @purebarrewestside. I've loved learning the light in my city these past few years--learning to love it, appreciate it, chase it and always pay attention to the places it beautifies and illuminates. Also reminding myself to stay upbeet while Thomas is away blazing the trail for us!
Spent yesterday wedditing away to finish up all the images from Jo and Steven's beautiful day last Sunday! So fun to relive the day with my couples on the big screen. Also filed my taxes. Productive for a Monday? I think yes. 💁 Today? A lil' teacher takeover over on @purebarrewestside, an edit meeting with @lilliangraycharles (this time I'm editing her! 😂) and livin' it up on Thomas' last day in ATL because tomorrow ➡️ DEN!
And this, this is Kit.
Today rocked. First up, Ace.
Not even home yet, but HAD to share the tiniest sliver of the most beautiful intimate wedding today at Juliette Chapel in Dahlonega, Georgia. Mazel Tov, Jo and Steven!!! Thank you for allowing @sjsmoooth and I to document your day! Countdown to destination shoot?! 🎉✨😘💕
More from @_bridget_p and Josh's Old Fourth Ward engagement shoot on the blog today! Barely a month till their Solarium wedding in Decatur! 💕🎉✨
Wow wow wooowwww, I LOVED this mini-fashion shoot with Kendall of @onefinesoul. Plus, downtown ATL was really showin' off for us. Here's to shooting for bloggers, exploring my city and shooting in bright light. Boundaries got nothin' on me! Wanna collab? Shoot me a line! Cool things comin' down the pipe.
