course, shooting photos and videos! I enjoy shooting a variety of videos and photos across DC, Maryland and Virginia as well as traveling across the U.S. The photos and videos I do include marketing/promotional videos, wedding videos, travel videos, as well as real estate photos and videos. If you like my style of work or want something more personal let me know, I'd love to connect with you!
My first love was video editing, but now I love shooting, editing and marketing! I also love meeting new people and working with them to reach their full potential. I graduated from George Mason University in 2018! I majored in Communications and concentrated in Media Production and Criticism. Some of my hobbies include, going on hikes with friends, going to the gym, spending time with my family, and of

"I hired Ashley from Ashley Melton Studios back in March for a promotional video for my business. She was very pleasant, professional, and patient. As a customer, I look for value and professionalism. Ashley understood my vision, and executed it flawlessly. I HIGHLY recommend her services. I look forward to working with her on future projects."
I try to make it a point to travel for pleasure and for passion projects. I love learning about other cultures. I have been to about 10 countries (the picture to the left was taken when I was in Panama!). Have a destination wedding or event? Contact me for a personalized quote and I will be happy to work with you!
I like to go to the gym, go to the spa and take mental breaks on most of the weekends. Because photography and videography take up a lot of my time, I find it important to unplug on the weekends and with my family, friends, and boyfriend.
I am always at my family's on the weekends, whether it's my dad, my mom, my sister or my cousins and aunts and uncles. The picture to the left is my second cousin turning one! Family is so important, so I cherish the moments I have with them by taking pictures at all the big family events and birthday parties.
I knew in the beginning of my college career that I wanted to do video production, so I joined the on-campus TV broadcast station, Mason Cable Network. I volunteered for a year before I was granted a scholarship. I gained experience with video editing with the editing software Adobe Premiere Pro. I am still so grateful for that experience as it has helped me grow my expertise to where I am now.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, which I guess is a good thing because they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I love hazelnut or vanilla iced coffee, coffee with a breakfast sandwich is heaven for me. I tend to be a coffee snob because I have tasted rich dark coffee beans from Panama and Costa Rica, and once you taste those beans there's no going back!
My goal is to always exceed your expectations and go above and beyond at events, yet I like to be a fly on the wall. I will be really involved in the pre-planning process, but I won't be in your face with a camera on the day of your event. I think it's so important to capture the moments and get the best shots possible without intruding on the day of activities. Even if it's an interview style video, I want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible without feeling nervous on camera (we all know how nerve racking it can be). This is why the pre-planning meetings and knowing my style of shooting is so important.
