The Ladies of Simply Lush
Meet the Simply Lush Team
The Simply Lush team is on a mission.
And since it’s not a top-secret mission, we’re about to fill you in on all the juicy details.
Actually, you’re a major part of our master plan.
But, don’t worry. The only thing you have to do is show up. We’ll take care of the rest…
Let us indulge, honor, and celebrate YOU and your irresistible essence with the boudoir experience of your dreams!
Now, we understand boudoir photography is incredibly intimate and vulnerable. It requires a lot of trust.
Rest assured, we take that trust very seriously.
So, we’d like to take a moment and share a little bit about ourselves…
Ashley Matthews, Owner & Photographer
Nearly a decade ago, Ashley began her career in wedding photography. When one of the brides she photographed introduced her to boudoir, she never looked back! Now, she’s the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area’s only boudoir specialist, providing women with custom boudoir sessions that reflect their personal style and vibe. From expert posing to exclusive wardrobe assistance, Ashley ensures every session is a unique and empowering experience.
Maria Bonacuse-Martin, Make-up Artist & Licensed Cosmetologist
Your Simply Lush Boudoir experience begins with Maria and a professional makeover right here in our studio. Maria was first licensed in 2011, and currently holds cosmetology licenses in Pennsylvania, New York, and Florida. At Simply Lush, her glamorous services include dry hair-styling, full makeup, and lashes.
Justine Yeager, Blog Babe & Studio Assistant
Justine met Ashley in June 2017 through a good friend and a complete twist of fate. A couple weeks later, she took over as Simply Lush’s blog writer, and became studio assistant in November 2017. When Justine’s not at the studio, you can find her at the Albright Memorial Library in Scranton, where she works as an outreach librarian.
