Welcome to glen+craft, a portrait photography company serving Central Virginia.
Hi! I’m Ashlee Glen, a photographer with a love for people, animals, gardening, and ethnic foods. I enjoy exploring cultures and spending time with family anywhere. I’m a native Texan with Filipino and Virginian roots. My husband, Jason, and I have four sweet daughters and two boxers.
I've never met a stranger and enjoy exploring new places and making new friends wherever I can find them. This is one of the reasons I enjoy photographing people—I like them!
I began attempting portraiture in my early 20’s, but was an amateur when it came to using a camera. Thankfully, a talented photographer named Vincent Rizzo grounded me in the basics. Vinny helped me cultivate my ability and pair my love for people with the gift of capturing their beauty.
In July of 2016, my family and I moved to Central Virginia and I immediately began building my photo business. After living here for a year and stretching out our legs a bit, we got a wild hair and decided to purchase and renovate a big, old historic house in Lynchburg's beautiful downtown. During the reno, we created an in-house photography studio, which I love! I now offer in-studio headshots, children's portraiture, and family portraits.
Our lives are full and crazy with our four daughters, interacting with local non-profits, being involved with our church, and getting to know as many neighbors as we can, as well as building glen+craft. We're in love with all of it, and wouldn't change the experiences that have brought us here.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any Qs!
