The Storyteller

I’m Ashley, owner, and photographer here at Fly Away Photography. I am a 2013 graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead where I completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. But I like to think of myself more as a storyteller than a photographer. I’m a documenter and memory keeper. I’m a wife, a mother, and a dream chaser extraordinaire. I’m a verklempt free spirit with a never ending desire to learn, I drink way too much coffee, and I love my cats even though I’m mildly allergic. My job isn’t to simply take a photograph or create memories but to capture those that are already happening. The innocence of childhood, the union of those in love, the passage of time, and the everyday moments you simply can’t bear to forget. Photography is my passion, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to share it with all of you. I find there are few things truly as rewarding as getting to know you and your loved ones all the while delivering a product that I know you will love and cherish for years to come.

I would love to meet you, so feel free to send me an email at


Kind Words

Ashley captured our wedding so perfectly! She caught all of the emotions during the ceremony, with our bride/groom photos, and during the dance. She is always looking to do her best and look for ways to improve even the most beautiful of photos. Definitely suggest her!!

Ashley is the best! She worked so well with my two kiddos. We can’t wait to go back!

These are, by far, the best photographs we have had taken! We have always had our family photos taken in a larger store in the mall, and though they always turned out good, we wanted something more! I stumbled upon Fly Away Photography on FB, and we are so happy that I did! Ashley does a fantastic job at capturing the most simple moments, and making them priceless (though her prices are fantastic and the best I could find, and the quality is above and beyond anything else you will see)! Our session was laid back, relaxed, and just enough time to keep our little guys engaged, and she did amazing at bringing out their personalities through her camera! We will definitely be customers for a very long time! Thanks, Ashley!

I do not have enough good things to say about Ashley. Not only is she the best photographer I’ve ever worked with she was a rock supporting me through the emotional highs and lows throughout my wedding day. I absolutely recommend her to any and everybody. She exceeded our expectations over and over again. Her pictures reveal her advance talent for photography but it’s this in addition to her spirit that make her the total package….not to mention she’s extremely timely and easy to work with. We look forward to seeing the work she does for our now small family in the future.

I truly think photography is an art, and I love to see how my kids appear in someone else’s eyes. It is interesting to try different photographers as each captures something different about the kids. I am thrilled to pieces with how Ashley caught my kids’ crazy personalities in these shots.

Ashley did a great job taking our first ever professional family photos and Cassie’s Senior photos, we had a blast and thanks for finding the perfect locations! We love all the pictures, they all turned out so great!

Fly Away Photography does a phenomenal job capturing your personality in a photograph. I recently did a portraiture session for some new head shots and I cannot believe how great they turned out! You can go see them on her blog and I highly suggest visiting it to get a better taste her work. Ashley did a great job capturing the perfect head shot but she also captures those quiet moments you never knew you needed; such as laughing or fixing your hair. If you’re looking for a photographer with a creative and artistic eye then Fly Away Photography is your best bet!

Ashley is a sweetheart and is fun to work with. She did an amazing job taking our family pictures and truly captured our love and joy for each other in them.

Ashley Wegh did a fantastic job of following my little one around as she toddled here and there, simply being herself. She captured some beautiful moments, of which a chosen few are now beloved canvases on my walls. Her artistic eye and technical skill are obvious in her photos. I can’t wait to call upon her again for some more keepsake memories of our girl!

After you find the perfect guy to marry, the next thing on your to-do list is to find the perfect photographer…for us Ashley Wegh was just that! She did an excellent job with both our engagement and wedding photos and was able to take our crazy ideas for wedding shots and turn them into photographs that were beyond what we could have ever imagined. From corn fields to jumping poses to capturing some of the finest moments of our reception, everything was perfect! I would highly recommend Ashley Wegh for your photography needs!
