I want to start off by saying that you being here is the best and I am so grateful that you are interested in hiring me!! Seriously, it means the world. My name is Ashlyn and I started 606 Photo in 2018 after suffering through my first Chicago winter. Photography had always been a hobby prior to that March but making it my career is the best decision I have ever made!

Silly old me got a dog when I was 20 years old as a full-time student with a part-time job. This little guy has been the greatest challenge I have ever taken on. I had no idea what it entailed to have a dog of my own (let alone a freaking aussie!!) and he has taught me so, so much through our five years together. I am more patient, more loyal, and more caring of a person because of him. In case you can't tell already, dogs mean the world to me. I worked in animal hospitals for years just for the pups and now, I am lucky enough to still get to work with them! Truthfully, if you have a pupper in your wedding, expect a discount.
