Ashton Songer Ferguson graduated with a degree in photojournalism in 2013 thinking that she would never be a wedding photographer, but she was also discouraged by her prospects in the media industry. She always had photo jobs, but none of them were fulfilling. It wasn’t until her own wedding in 2014 that her idea of wedding photography completely changed. Her wedding photographer encouraged her to walk out the door from her day job and never look back. And she did it.
In today’s episode, Ashton talks about how she got her business off the ground.
