Bespoke, Natural Wedding Photography


Award winning Devon wedding photographer.  I travel throughout Ireland, Devon and Cornwall capturing memories.

The name’s Ashling, and I’m an Irish lass who fell in love with her Devon hubby when I came to Plymouth to study architecture more years ago than I care to remember!  It was only after our own wedding did I discover a passion for photography. Capturing moments, big and small – the smiles, tears, laughter and the bear hugs! I love sending my couples a gallery full of timeless photographs that are a natural narrative of their wedding day to be cherished for a lifetime. 

I  specialize in telling your story in a relaxed documentary style, creating romantic, beautiful images using natural light.  Check out the videos on my love stories to see some beautiful celebrations I’ve been a part of.  The video slideshows display a range of images from all parts of the day.

 If you are looking for creative, natural wedding photography, I’d love to hear from you

A snapshot of an incredible year!

Some kind words from my awesome couples

  • Thankyou so much for everything you did for our special day in August.  You are both so lovely, so talented and such a fabulous couple.  We were so delighted to have you both and everyone was raving about you guys. Lots of love, R&M x
  • Isaac and I were lucky enough to have been recommended to use Butterfly Photography to capture our wedding day, they are a beautiful talented couple who made us feel at ease while capturing our day in the creative natural way we wanted, we cannot recommend them enough, don’t look anywhere else xx
  • Ash and Dan were absolutely brilliant to deal with from start to finish! We will treasure the stunning photos they took of our special day. Can’t stop looking at them! They were so generous with their time and patience, advice and special touches throughout our entire dealings with them.
  • Really cannot thank you guys enough! From the extra friendly emails and tips from the beginning. Felt like we knew you!to getting to know our venue before the big day and then being so relaxed, fun and subtle on our wedding day!the couple photography was one of my favourite parts of the day so special and relaxed...with the love notes and music made it so real! Cannot thank you guys enough could not have asked for more!
  • Ashling and Dan were great to work with and very understanding as we decided to elope at the last minute. Stepped in to help us when we needed it in getting ready and to catch my veil when the wind blew it off. The quality of pictures were fantastic. Would recommend Ashling to anyone and everyone!!
  • Our day could not have been captured in a more beautiful way and anyone who sees my photos say they belong in a magazine, a photographer could not receive a better compliment! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.  The photos are truly beautiful and capture the beauty of our venue and the love that we have for one another.  I couldn’t have asked for better.
  • Ashling is an extremely professional, dedicated & talented individual; going above & beyond to capture the best images she possibly could of our special day. From scoping out the venue (finding some amazing hidden gems!) to her patience & good humour to bring out the best in everyone.  We couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
  • Ashling and her husband Dan were absolutely amazing. They completely understood the style of photography we wanted and fitted in with the laid back vibe of our wedding. They produced beautiful natural photographs of a very camera shy un-photogenic couple! They are so friendly and great at putting you at your ease. Ashling really seems to have a gift.
  • Our photos are completely stunning and our wedding looks like something from a magazine shoot! Ashling worked incredibly hard on the day itself and managed to capture so many precious moments that can now stay with us forever. She was incredibly professional on the day and during the lead up, answering emails incredibly swiftly and nothing was too much trouble.
  • Ashling was unbelievable! She came to visit us before and after the wedding, gave us advice and made our 3 children so comfortable.  She captured our most memorable moments as a family without any fuss.  Ashling has a wonderful ability to put you at ease.  The moments she captured are so romantic.  When I look at these pictures now I am so thankful to her.
  • Ashling and Dan were so friendly and easy to work with. The images they produced were fantastic. They really made it easy on the day and really took ownership of the day to ensure they captured the day. Looking through the pictures they instantly transport us back to the feelings of the day.  They are great fun to just be around. Can’t commend them highly enough.
  • From day one they went above and beyond and were always available for any advice or query. We are so happy with the amazing photographs we received that managed to unobtrusively capture all the emotion and highlights of our special day. Ashling is such a talented photographer who manages to be everywhere yet not get in the way, could not recommend highly enough.
  • Ashling and Dan were great to work with. We flew over from the U.S. for our big day to be in my partner’s home village and Ashling and Dan made the whole process very easy for us. They really added to our day and captured the things that mattered to us.
  • After looking at what felt like all the photographers in Ireland I chose Butterfly Photography, and I’m so glad that I did. When I first met Ashling, she put me at ease & truly made the day relaxing, fun & memorable. When we got our photo package, it was totally worth the wait & the money, to be honest I can’t even remember how much it cost because it doesn’t matter anymore, I have beautiful memories captured in photos.
  • We could not have been more delighted with Ashling’s work. Having her there with us throughout the day was like having a second bridesmaid. She was nicknamed the ‘kamikazi photographer’ by our guests because she was so discreet! Our couple photos are utterly stunning, we look like we could be models in a bridal magazine but it is Ashling’s ability to capture the spirit of the day which is truly outstanding. She goes the extra mile.
  • Words cannot describe how wonderful and talented Ashling is. Her ability to capture the magic of the day was depicted in every single picture. She made us feel comfortable and at ease, while capturing the true beauty of every moment. Not only was she an amazing photographer, but she went above and beyond her duties, which made her feel like a close friend!
