Workshops & Styled Shoots
I first started my photography business in high school. While other high schoolers were keeping up with the latest drama, I was naming my photography business and dreaming of a future career. Shortly after graduation I enrolled in cosmetology school and found joy in serving other women, making them feel beautiful, and empowering them. Throughout my photography career, I have continued to experience that same joy by photographing women in a way that brings them confidence and boosts their self esteem. I have learned that I am happiest when I am serving others, encouraging them, & loving others as Christ loves us.
And that is why I am here today, cheering you on! (Yes, I cheer other photographers on every day!)
At each of my workshops, my goal is for you to walk away with new knowledge, a sense of purpose, and remind you just how great of a photographer you really are. And my styled shoots are created to inspire you and provide you with a fresh, new portfolio featuring the latest wedding trends.
NEXT EVENT : TO BE ANNOUNCED.

I attended a workshop by Ashley & Noah over the weekend! When I arrived I was welcomed into their home and immediately felt like I was just hanging out with friends. The workshop was jammed packed with such amazing information and Ashley made sure we stayed on schedule. The styled shoot that Ashley put together was nothing short of amazing. Every detail was well thought out and the models were gorgeous! The content of the class well presented well and she always welcomed everyone's questions. When the workshop was over I sent Ashley a couple messaged of questions I thought of on my 4 hour drive home and she responded almost immediately. I have been to several workshops in my 8 year career and none of them even come close to comparing! Thank you for a job well done!
Where do I even start? I was extremely nervous coming into this workshop, but Ashley and Noah made it super easy to feel comfortable and welcome! The classes were incredibly easy to understand and relate to - I found myself thinking, “Yes! This would be PERFECT for my business!” quite often. I definitley recommed attending a Flourish Workshop if you need a boost in yourself confidence as a business woman and photographer. I walked away with a new found motivation and a ton of ideas about how I want to grow my business.
I can’t even express the amount of professionalism and talent Ashley and Noah have. The workshop I attended was above and beyond what I ever expected. I learned so much in the small amount of time we had with each other. They welcomed me into their home and inspired me and everyone else who attended. This for sure won’t be my last workshop with them two! I can’t thank them enough!
I’ve only known Ashley and Noah for a year or so, but in that time I’ve taken 2 of their courses [Workshop #1 and #2]. Each time, the experience goes above and beyond what I expect. The Flourish Workshop taught me so much about the business side of photography, which is something I am so grateful for because I know absolutely NOTHING about it. I will definitely be investing in more of their courses in the future because aside from knowing more about business, I know more about my passion and myself. Ashley and Noah are both such sweet, genuine people and I can’t wait to see them grow even more.
WOW WOW!!!! When I decided to enroll in this workshop I was so nervous but as soon as I walked into Ashley and Noah’s home I knew I made the right decision. They welcomed me in like we’ve known each other forever.
I learned so much and I’m so excited to see where my business goes with all the knowledge I now have. The lessons were so easy to understand and follow. I highly recommend for anyone who has the opportunity to attend one of flourished workshops to do so without any hesitation.
Look forward to the September workshop.
Ashley and Noah thank you so much for your amazing hospitality. If I could give you 10 stars I’d do just that. Again thank you.
I attended a workshop by Ashley and Noah this past weekend. This was my very first time ever going to any type of workshop. I haven't been in the photography business very long, but from the very first moment I stepped into their home it felt like I have known them for a long time and they were welcoming me back. The experience and knowledge I gained from this workshop was phenomenal!!! From the styled shoot to the hours of knowledgeable content, Ashley always had us laughing and enjoying each moment. They do an amazing job of answering everyone's questions being honest and true. I have learned so much from this experience and it has already boosted my confidence as a business woman and a photographer!!!
I met Ashley & Noah this past weekend at their workshop [Workshop #1] they had on March 3rd & 4th. I was a little nervous signing up for this class because I had some people telling me that it would not be worth it and oh boy were they wrong!!! From they start they were so sweet and made you feel at home. As a brand bew photographer, I thought this would be overwhelming but it was not. Ashley explained everything and broke it down to every little piece there was. From guest speakers, to activities and delicious food they had prepared for this workshop, it was absolutely amazing! I loved how well put everything was. We learned so much about business & marketing that I lacked in, how to style & photograph a wedding couple and make the shoot enjoyable for you and the couple! I walked away from Flourish Workshop with so much knowledge and so many new amazing friends! I loved how there were so many photographers with different skill levels who have been in business less then a year up to 15 years, and we all walked away with new knowledge for each of our businesses. I am so excited to see where my business takes me with my new acquired knowledge. If you have been considering a workshop, this is it! It's definitely an Investment that will change any business in the best way possible!
I recently took courses [Workshop #1 & #2] from Ashley Wills and one covered mastering manual . I had been struggling with trying to figure it out. After taking this course it all finally clicked. She simplified the process as best as she could so that all the technical stuff was so much easier to understand. She has definitely improved my photography skills. I photographed a wedding not too long afterwards and it is night and day with the quality of my photos! I cannot wait to keep taking classes and workshops that she has to offer and I would recommend the class to anyone...!
I was so encouraged at Workshop [ #1 ] this past weekend!!! I have to say Ashley and Noah are such amazing teachers and their hospitality was incredible!
If you are looking to take this workshop don’t hesitate, as they have tons of info to share! You also get to connect with other photographers along the way. I loved my experience with them! Thank you both!!!
I grew up with my camera attached to my hand. Over the years, I had met a lot of Photographers that didn't have their hearts in the right place. They made our field competitive, hateful and literally uncomfortable to work in. Every Photographer I had met had this bad taste in their mouth for their "competition". It had always steered me away from furthering my education, because I thought that was common among Photographer. Then here comes the Flourish Workshop. I had never taken the time to actually sit down and learn how to be a business woman. I knew I had the drive and the interest, but never found something that truly spoke to me as a Photographer. Cue the nerves walking into the Flourish Workshop, Day 1: All I saw was smiling faces and women with the same drive as me, if not more. Ashley, Noah & Tiffany were so warm and inviting. They made each of us feel at home. From the moment the classes started to the very last hour, our weekend was packed with INSPIRATIONAL MATERIAL. And not just in one aspect. They covered legal work, health & wellness, social media presence, so many things I would have never thought of. And let me just say, that I made lifelong friends and connections this past weekend. Every single one of the women that attended this workshop were so talented and driven. I feel like I am a part of a community and a support system and that is the best feeling to have for someone who has felt like they have had to rough it out on their own because no one had ever steered them in the right direction when it came to Photography. Very few Mentors have made a positive impact on my life the way the Flourish Workshop has. I left refreshed, prepared and ready to make changes. This workshop is worth your time and your hard earned money. TAKE THE TIME to educate yourself and do it in a room of people who care just as much about your business and sanity as you do!
Ashley and Noah’s workshop [ #1 ] was a fantastic way to find where growth is needed in my business and myself. Upon arriving at their home I didn’t just feel like a new friend, I felt like family. The information was relevant, knowledgeable, and easy to follow. Ashley took the time to address every question and she did it with such grace. In her home, no matter what experience you have, you are a growing, amazing photographer. Her stance on community vs competition is one I hope all business leaders hold. The styled shoot was beautiful and at an amazing location to produce flawless pictures ... They share many great platforms to start your business on. I’m excited to see what these two bring to Missouri! Thank Ashley, Noah, Tiffany, and of course sweet Molly!
