Hi, I am Tai Cox, a wife, mother of 3 and one of the brilliant photographers at Elizabeth Ashley & Co. I started working with Elizabeth Ashley & Co. about 8 months ago and have loved every moment I’ve spent with this wonderful group of photographers. I have been in the photography industry for over 5 years and am mostly self-taught but have also studied at The Art Institute as well. I was inspired to delve into photography from a fellow friend/photographer and have never regretted it for one single moment. Here at Elizabeth Ashley & Co. we love photography, weddings and I’m sure you will love us too.

Q is from a small town in central Virginia, but has lived here in North Carolina for the past 16 years. A career academic, Q has a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a Master’s degree in Social Work, both from UNC Chapel Hill. He will begin working on his PhD in the Fall. Art tends to be an outlet for Q, and photography gives him the chance to exercise creativity that the world of research and education may not. When not working, studying, or capturing life’s moments, Q enjoys spending time with his wife and two beautiful daughters, playing video games, watching movies, and appreciating the rare instances of peace.

Jason has become well known for the vivid images he creates with the kind excitable creativity that inspires, and sometimes amuses, his clients.

I have been a photographer for the past 10 years, documenting weddings, families, babies, and even those adorable 4-legged friends. Do not ask me to pick a favorite, each present their own unique challenge and reward. But I can honestly say, I love what I do! I started my career with a focus on wedding photography, where I still thrive today. But in more recent years, since the arrival of my own little girl, I have ventured into family, newborn and maternity photography. My husband and I are affiliated with several animal rescue organizations in the area and I often lend my services to help educate and promote these organizations. With 3 cats and a dog of our own (all previous foster animals), I take great pride in helping where I can.

Samantha Katherine Clark started out learning photography when she was 16 working alongside other great local photographers who pushed her to stretch her knowledge, widen her horizons, and build confidence in her work and techniques which helped to shape her into the artist that she is today.
When she realized the camera was an extension of her arm, she decided to put her creative nature to good use and volunteer at her local animal shelter taking their adoption pictures. As her skills improved, she decided to apply those skills to people and take portraits. With Detroit and the beautiful parks in Southeastern Michigan as her backdrop, she photographs the special moments in my clients' lives. Her one true love is preserving memories, whether it be that special look in an engagement session or a child's smile.
