What's the difference between hiring me and someone else?
I have been photographing weddings since 2010 (Randy has been by my side shooting as my primary second shooter since 2013) having photographed nearly 200 weddings from the rooftops of Los Angeles to the streets of New York City, at 14,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies and the beaches of the Emerald Coast of Florida. Sunrise, mid-day, afternoon or night. Winter or Summer. Pouring rain, dumping snow, 119 degrees with no shade ... when I say I have done it all - I mean it!
When you're hiring me, you're not just getting someone who takes great photos, but you're getting someone who will walk with you through the entire wedding process from start to finish!
Basically, I will be your wedding day BFF ... and not to get all corny, but, to quote our Friends Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe ...
I know it's a lot to take in, so if you have questions, just let me know. Take a look around here on our Wedding Guide - you'll be able to find information about my packages, how you can customize them to fit your budget, and read testimonials from past couples!
Once again, congratulations on your engagement and thank you so much for the honor of reaching out to me about being your Wisconsin wedding photographer.
I'll be there for youuuuu ...
I am so excited to be officially back in the office after taking the last couple of weeks off for the holidays. Chris and Aly had the most magical winter wedding at Rosewood Delavan right before my winter break started. I cannot think of a better wedding to kick off my 2023 blogs! I had […]
All weddings are fully customized for each couple based on their wants, needs and budgets.
No matter if you have me for 3 hours or all day long, I'm absolutely excited to be your wedding day BFF. You'll receive guidance, vendor referrals & so much more when I photograph your big day!
All wedding photography packages include:
· All of the finished images with printing rights
· Engagement session with digital files (6+ hours)
· Private gallery for downloading and sharing
FULL DAY Wedding coverage starts at $3200
With over 12 years of wedding photography experience, something that I have learned over the years is how unique every wedding is. There is no one-size-fits-all cookie cutter wedding, and your special day deserves individualized attention. Every couple has different wants and needs, and together we'll create a customized collection for your perfect wedding day.
Step one: A Phone Date
This is where my enneagram 2w3 comes into play: it's very, very important to me that I'm not just another wedding vendor for my couples. I want you to feel 100% comfortable with me, welcoming me into your world. In order to make sure you have the best, most least-stressful day possible, you will receive customized planning for your wedding to ensure that your day reflects your vision, your relationship and the most exciting day of your lives (so far!). This also includes spending time together for your engagement session!
Step two: Build Our Friendship
This is the moment we have both been waiting for: your wedding day!! We have done so much planning and prep work for today, and it is my goal for you to live in each moment, soaking up the love and energy all while documenting and telling the story with my camera. And heck yeah, I'll see you on the dance floor!
Step three: The Best Day Ever
Within 48 hours of your wedding, you will receive a small preview gallery so you immediately have photos to share on social media, and even order your thank you cards. 6-8 weeks later, you'll receive your full gallery and together we will create your first heirloom. This will be the album your future children and grandchildren will treasure!
Step Four: Your First Heirloom
This is what I want!
Does this sound like the kind of wedding experience you want to have?

Yes! I have a trusted list of amazing photographers who would pinch-hit for me just as readily as I would for them. Community over competition, friends!
Not only do I think engagement sessions are fun for couples and a great way to share the excitement of your upcoming wedding with friends and family, but I also feel like it's a vital part of the wedding process. Why? Because it allows us to hang out, get to know each other and learn a lot of important need-to-know info before the wedding!
Sessions and weddings are rescheduled with no additional fees, and I have a network of backup photographers available to cover for me at any time. Let's make this crazy time as easy as possible for everyone, and not make a bad situation any worse than it already is. I'm happy to go over this with you, just ask!
AbsoFREAKINGlutely. Since moving to the midwest, my opportunity to photograph LGBTQ couples has not been as much as it was when we lived in Palm Springs or Colorado, so you might not see it recently on my blog, but I'd love to invite you to check my previous LGBT blog posts by clicking here. 🏳️🌈
I want you guys to print your images, make albums and give them as gifts. 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.

"Ashley made our wedding unforgettable. The pictures that she captured moved me to tears of joy and I will always be so thankful that we made the decision to hire her for our day. These are priceless memories that we will be able to display for years to come. Highly highly recommend, you won’t find a better photographer. Her attention to details, eye for styling, and fun personality make for a priceless experience."
