The Durhams | Southeast Wisconsin Family Photographers


family, high school senior, lifestyle, branding & boudoir sessions IN WISCONSIN

Since 2010, we have been photographing families all across the United States - coast to coast, on top of mountains and in the valleys, at the beach and in their homes. It's been one of our greatest joys to be part of some of the most incredible moments, and document the lives of my clients-turned-friends. We are thrilled to be Wisconsin family photographers!

All sessions take place outdoors, approximately 90 minutes before sunset. Lifestyle newborn sessions are done in the privacy of client homes or at our brand new photography studio in Burlington, WI.

Wanna have some fun together at your wedding?

Wanna have some fun together at your wedding?

Do you have backup photographers "Just in case"?

For weddings: Yes! We have a trusted list of amazing photographers who would pinch-hit for us just as readily as we would for them. Community over competition, friends! For sessions? We have flexible schedules that allow us to reschedule if need be.

Frequently Asked Questions


Fun fact: everyone is awkward and weird when trying to be POSED in front of the camera. There is literally nothing LESS CASUAL than the prom pose, right!? No thank you! Instead, we'll give you lots of directions and prompts to get natural, intimate and fun photos of you guys ... let's keep it real, mmk?

Where are you located?

We are based out of the Burlington/Lake Geneva area but we are game to shoot anywhere in Wisconsin, northern Illinois - even eastern Iowa, eastern Minnesota or western/southern Michigan! Basically if we can drive there in a day, we'd love to hang out for your session or wedding!

Do you give out unedited/raw photos or video footage?

Tell me, would you go out on a fancy date night and ask the chef for a raw slab of prime rib to season and grill to perfection? Nope. I mean, maybe YOU would, but most people wouldn't because the whole point of hiring a professional is to get what THEY have to offer. So simply put: no. Our editing and delivery process is part of the experience of working with us. 

Are digital files included? Printing rights?

We want you guys to print your images, make albums and give them as gifts. With weddings and sessions, you will receive all of the finished digital images with printing rights and you'll also receive an online gallery where you can download your images, purchase prints and share. We also do ordering sessions!

HOw many pictures can we expect?

For a typical session, at least 50+ images and for weddings, roughly 100 images per hour of coverage since there's two of us. We don't limit or cap the number of photos you'll receive, because each session and wedding is entirely unique. More details, more people, more time? More photos. Simple as that!

Do you reschedule if weather is bad?

Generally speaking - yes. Cold kids = grumpy kids and honestly ... grumpy adults, too. If it's raining, we'll reschedule if it's at all possible. I will always be in constant contact with you to decide if we need to reschedule (and no, before you ask - there's no rescheduling fees for things outside of our control like weather).

Will you photoshop me?

Okay first of all, knock it off. No. You don't NEED photoshopped! I am a firm believer in authenticity and as a professional photographer, knowing how to guide people into flattering poses in any kind of lighting situation. That said, if you wake up and OMG have a huge pimple on your forehead - I got you, Boo. But no, I can't make you look 10 years younger, I won't nip and tuck, and I refuse to make you look like a crazy Snapchat filter. You're beautiful the way you are! 

Thank You!

Port Washington Engagement Session - Ashley Durham Photography

Apr 28

If you know anything about me, you know I absolutely love taking road trips and exploring new areas. When Josh and Jazmine talked about us photographing their engagement session in Port Washington at the marina, I immediately was like HECK YES. I didn’t even care that it was stupid cold and windy outside! Port Washington […]
