First, Let me start by saying ...
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 ...
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!

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 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 it so fun and natural feeling, we had a blast and loved our photos! We got tons of compliments from people saying they were the best they'd ever seen because they looked so genuine. Ashley was a HUGE help leading up to the wedding, helping me get my timeline organized and getting us even more excited. she was one of the first people I sent photos of my dress to and it was so fun to share that excitement with her! They handled the wedding day so professionally and were so helpful throughout the day. they made sure we got a few minutes of alone time between the ceremony, photos and the reception which meant the world to us since we didn't do a first look. They made sure we had anything and everything we needed all day which took so much stress off of us. They got our sneak peek to us in less than 48 hours, which was so special! We got our full gallery in less than two weeks and were completely blown away. Our photos are gorgeous and perfect and we couldn't ask for anything more. We went into this process needing a wedding photographer and I feel like we walked away with two new friends!
We LOVE Randy and Ashley! I felt sooo overwhelmed when beginning my search for an engagement photo and wedding photographer until I found these two! their style is exactly what I was looking for and I messaged them immediately to try to get an engagement shoot scheduled while the aspens were still glowing. Ashley messaged me back within an hour and we scheduled our shoot soon after. I was so nervous for our engagement photos and thought it would consist of lots of awkward poses, but I was SO wrong.
Wow, the best. EVER. If you're still searching for photographers stop now.
This dynamic duo of a couple is excellent in every sense of the word. They work together as a team from the moment you hire them to make sure that the photos they capture for your big day are absolutely perfect . They are talented, detail- oriented, organized and always on the ball. Beyond that they take the time to really get to know you, and as you get to know them, you realize that not only are they loving, kind & thoughtful , but they are real down-to-earth people.
I had a destination wedding so a lot of the communication was on the phone over email and via Skype. When we finally did meet it felt like we were hanging out with old friends. Randy and Ashley are truly passionate about love and photography. They are two of the BEST photographers that I have ever worked with and I could not recommend them highly enough. Oh yeah… And the pictures were flawless. Seriously, do yourself a favor - stop searching and hire them.
Randy + Ashley shot our wedding in the mountains of Colorado. The entire experience was positive from beginning to end. They let us know exactly what to expect ahead of time, maintained constant communication throughout the process, always arrived on time, and were very pleasant to work with. We received the finished photos very soon after our wedding and they were amazing! I'm very happy that we chose Randy + Ashley to capture this special moment in our lives. They provided us with beautiful photos that we'll cherish for a lifetime!
Randy + Ashley were absolutely amazing to work with! They took our engagement photos, my boudoir shoot, and wedding photos and we were absolutely blown away by the photos they captured! Randy+ Ashley are super organized- they even helped us create a wedding timeline that we shared with our other vendors. They took time to get to know us and make us feel comfortable and relaxed whenever we were working with them. I cannot recommend Randy+ Ashley enough! You will not regret working with them!
We first met Randy & Ashley for our engagement shoot. Not only were our pictures amazing, but we were blown away by how much fun they made it. In addition to the quality of service and amazing artistry, Ashley is also very timely and responsive. I would recommend RAD to anyone who cares about pictures and wants to remember their wedding for the rest of their lives.
Randy and Ashley were absolutely incredible on our wedding day and the months and weeks leading up to the big day. They thought of all of the little and thoughtful things and made our day even more memorable. Thank you for everything guys. Y’all are truely family!
I cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about Randy + Ashley and HIGHLY recommend them to all my family, friends, and future brides and grooms. They are not only SO fun and fabulous, but they are absolutely INCREDIBLE at what they do! I fell in love with their style of photography when seeing a friend's photoshoot with them and absolutely knew my (now) husband Chris and I HAD to book them for our March 2018 Palm Springs wedding. We loved that they were a husband and wife duo and small business owners who are still madly in love with each other even with four young kids. Talk about #goals! In all sincerity, choosing Randy + Ashley was one of the BEST decisions we made in our wedding planning process. Randy + Ashley were eager to FaceTime with us to get to know us and our story, and they were invaluable in every step of our planning process. Our engagement photos in Joshua Tree were out of this world BEAUTIFUL. Additionally, I can't tell you how many calls, emails, and texts Ashely and I had going for months in preparation for our March 2018 wedding--she went above and beyond helping with our timeline, our must-have wedding day photos, and SO much more. Our wedding day was EVERYTHING and more in large part because of how phenomenal Randy + Ashley are.
I felt so at ease all day with them by our side all wedding day. I was shocked when we received our complete gallery of wedding photos less than a month after we were married, unbelievable! Literally ALL of the photos are STUNNING, and I cry every time I look through them because of how beautifully they capture the emotion and fun of the day. We feel SO privileged to become such wonderful friends with Randy + Ashley and be part of the RAD weddings family! We look forward to having Randy + Ashley photograph all of our future life milestones and have them in our lives as friends! HUGE thanks, Randy + Ashley!! We love you guys SO much and couldn't recommend you both more highly!!
Randy and Ashley are THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS EVER!!! The photos that they took of our wedding in Laguna Beach could not have been more beautiful. They were thorough, creative, and a real pleasure to work with. They worked fabulously with our wedding planner and made the day go by without a hitch. We had some real crazy weather to contend with but both Randy and Ashley were positive and kept everything moving along so that we could keep as close to our schedule as possible. The photos that they took were the most incredible photos that I have seen and we are SO EXCITED about all of them. Randy and Ashley go above and beyond the call of duty and make everyone feel comfortable - even a bride who is nervous and just wants to see her groom! We would recommend them to anyone and everyone and you will be SO HAPPY you chose them. We love Randy and Ashley!!!
Randy and Ashley are simply the BEST! They traveled all the way to San Fransisco to shoot our wedding!! (PS Ashley doesn't even like to fly!) Ashley is EXTREMELY responsive which I can appreciate because a lot of vendors are not. They were SO quick on getting us our images back (and mind you we had about 4K!!! and they are ALL AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!) They photographed EVERY detail. They both honestly went above and beyond for Billy and I. They are truly the best and will did everything in their power to make sure we got all of the shots we wanted. They are an awesome hubby and wife team and are truly and inspiration. If you are looking for amazing photographers look no further, Randy and Ashley have a talent that the world should know about.
By the far the best choice we could have made for our wedding! Randy and Ashley are quite simply two of the most amazing people you will ever meet. Not only are they incredibly talented photographers but they are genuine people with big hearts who know how to make your special day unforgettable from the moment they meet you to long after they shoot your wedding. I think it is rare to find people in this age who take the time to put others first, who beyond a contractual agreement to shoot your wedding, truly want to invest in life long friendships. From the first moment we talked with the pair we knew they were going to be a great fit. They help you every step of the way through your planning process, even following your pinterest account and providing great tips, and are there for you long after you receive your prints, like amazing first christmas as Mr and Mrs gifts. They even took extra time over christmas to put through our album order to ensure we had it in time before we left the country to return home to Australia, beyond grateful! If you're not sold already on the type of people they are then you will be on the quality of their work and their eye for detail and their ability to find love and life in every shot.
We continually are complimented on the photographs from our engagement and our wedding above everything else. To say that we would highly recommend Randy and Ashley is an understatement!
My husband and I cannot say enough great things about this dynamic duo. From the first phone call with Ashley we knew she was going to make our entire wedding process perfect. We initially flew out to Colorado for our engagement shoot (something we had always wanted to do). We were both a bit nervous about the process, but Ashley and Randy made the entire process SO easy and fun. Like truly FUN. We had a blast. They found the perfect location for us too, even though we were picky about exactly what we wanted the scenary like. For our wedding, Ashley helped us step by step make sure every picture we wanted was taken. The photos are absolutely STUNNING. I don't understand how they are so talented! We cannot thank them enough for making sure we have last memories from the best day of our lives!!
Randy and Ashley came highly recommended by our wedding planner and FAR EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS. I cannot say enough positive things about them but here is a start - 1) they go out of their way to get to know you as a couple to ensure your photos reflect YOU, 2) they are extremely creative in their shoots and capture the most impt moments, 3) they are highly organized and not afraid to direct traffic the day of - something that you most surely want, 4) they go above and beyond in every since of the word. We just got back from our honeymoon and had a holiday ornament of two of our photos. They do blogs which are awesome to share what happened and the highlights with your family and friends. No one had nothing but the most positive to things to say about the results they deliver. And - after all - the photos are the only thing you have to look back on. Do yourself a favor and hire R+A. You will not regret it - ever. WE LOVE THEM!
