Maria Ashby-Giles Photography

Maria Ashby-Giles Social, Wedding, Portrait,  and Commercial Photographer based in Maidenhead in Berkshire.

Well aren't these strange times indeed.  2020 is definitely not going to script, by now I should have many weddings in the can, shot hundreds of young adults at proms plus captured many more at casting days, school shoots, nursery shoots and with families.  I would have also shot many other events, company AGM's, gatherings, parties and many fun days.  To say I have missed all these events is an understatement. 

So, I took a few months off to take stock, grow some veg, make jam and chutney and to avoid home schooling joined the land army and worked for a few months on a farm picking fruit (it was so much fun and great for the soul).

I am missing weddings and thank all of my couples who should have been married this year for moving their plans and being so positive.  I also thank all of the couples who have been positive and booked weddings for 2021 & 2022. If you are looking for a wedding photographer please give me a call and lets chat weddings, ideas, flowers, dresses and photos.  The break has meant my head is bursting with ideas.

I am NOW booking nursery schools for pre Christmas shoots, Family shoots, plus headshots for actors, performers and Linkedin.

Thank you for visiting my site, feel free to call if you have any questions - 07941 188892


Maria has become more than a photographer to our family. Maria has provided us with fantastic photos from our engagement shoot right through to a newborn shoot of our second daughter. Not only do we have fantastic photos around our house but have fond memories of fun and relaxed shoots. Our eldest daughter loves visiting Maria and we have developed a life long friendship. Whenever we need our photos updating we know who to call. Maria is also highly thought of amongst our friends and we don't hesitate in recommending her.
