Ashlea is the most talented photographer and is so lovely to work with! Our engagement and wedding photos were more beautiful than we could have imagined. Ashlea made us so comfortable throughout the entire process, is responsive, kind, and made our wedding day so much fun. She found all the hidden gems in the venue and provided so much variety in her shots. She exceeded all expectations and truly overdelivered. I recommend using Ashlea for any photo occasion - she is incredible!

So nice, we worked with her twice!

I would highly recommend Ashlea to anyone looking for a photographer. She was our wedding photographer in 2021 and she was absolutely lovely to work with on the day of - everyone in our wedding party agreed! She is warm, friendly and great at making everyone feel at ease during photos. Her directions lead to beautiful shots and we were in love with how the photo gallery turned out. She is also super organized and responsive to schedule with. We had to reschedule our wedding due to the pandemic, and Ashlea was incredibly supportive and collaborative to figure out an alternate plan together. After such a wonderful experience working with her for our wedding, we knew immediately we would like to work with her again in the future, and we have hired her again since for family photos with our newborn. Thank you Ashlea for documenting all our most important family moments - you are incredible at what you do!

Fantastic Engagement & Wedding Photos

Ashlea was an absolute joy to work with and captured some truly candid moments, which my husband and I will treasure forever. Always lovely to deal with, both before and after the wedding, Ashlea also delivered all of our photographs in a timely manner. Highest quality photographs and service!

If she's available, book her NOW.

I'd like to start by saying that truly INVESTING in your photography and video teams is THE best decision you can make for your big day. Yes, sometimes the packages can seem a bit pricey on the surface... but prior to my own wedding every SINGLE couple I spoke to said 1 of 2 things:
1. I wish I had gotten a better photographer.
2. We spent a lot on our photographer but we're so happy we did.

We approached our photographer hunt with these in mind and let me tell you: WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY.

Ashlea is THE BEST. We started planning our July wedding in November and by serious luck Ashlea had our date available. From moment one I knew I was working with a true pro.

Ashlea was so experienced and organized, she took on such a leadership role which I completely appreciate. She gave us her ALL since we met and I am so grateful to her. We weren’t super comfortable in front of the camera and she was able to capture super genuine moments which is so amazing to have forever.

We had a big wedding party and plenty of family - ie. lots of personalities to wrangle - and Ashlea was amazing at keeping things moving and keep us laughing.

Our main desire was to spend as much time with our guests as possible and Ashlea really listened to this request and didn’t make us feel obligated to spend time away from everyone just for a great shot… she made the shots work where we were, with what we had, when we could.

Ashlea’s professionalism is top notch. She worked sooo well with our other vendors and I was sooo relaxed on my wedding day knowing that she had it all under control. I seriously could not imagine our wedding day without her; and I’m so happy we don’t have to.

If you are lucky enough to be able to book Ashlea, do not hesitate. Investing in Ashlea is not only investing in AMAZING photos, and forever memories… but it was investing in serious piece of mind. Thank you Ashlea! You are one in a million.

Ashlea is extremely organized, professional, and TALENTED.

We are obsessed with the engagement photos and wedding photos that she provided.

Some differentiating services that Ashlea offered:
- sneak peek photos for both our engagement shoot and our wedding photos within 48 hours
- a walkthrough of the venue to identify desired shots and confirm appropriate lighting
- support in building our initial day-of itinerary

Absolutely Amazing

Ashlea was amazing from start to finish. She did both our engagement and wedding photos, and we were thrilled with both. She always made us feel comfortable, and somehow managed to get two people who hate getting photographed, feel relaxed and look amazing. She was also really helpful during the planning stages of our wedding, giving us useful advice about the flow of the day and helping us work through our itinerary. On our wedding she and her assistant Karina made everything flow smoothly, and all of our guests were impressed with them. Thanks to them, we have so many beautiful photos of our wedding - we are having a hard time choosing which ones to print!

Simply Amazing!

We don’t have enough great things to say about Ashlea! We loved her as soon as we met her & she exceeded all of our expectations. From our initial meeting, Ashlea helped us lay out a timeline that we ended up using for our actual day! We did an engagement shoot with her which allowed us to get to know each other, and she was incredibly flexible with incorporating our schedules and requests. She was also great with providing suggestion for locations. Our wedding day was entirely chaotic, with constantly changing weather and a tornado warning (and out of nowhere downpour!) five minutes before the ceremony. Through it all, Ashlea was cool as a cucumber and captured some amazing moments. She made our wedding look like the stunning dream day we had hoped and planned for despite it feeling like a mess at the time. We love her so much and you are very lucky if she’s available for your wedding!

Professional and Talented Photgrapher

We worked with Ashlea for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures this past August. Ashlea was a true professional and we adore all of our pictures. Could not recommend her more highly.

Ashlea MacAulay Photography

I fell in love with Ashlea the moment I spoke with her over the phone. She is fun and creative while also being extremely professional. My husband and I have never had professional photos taken and Ashlea made it feel so natural, we were very comfortable with her. I received many many compliments from our bridal party as well as guest with how awesome she was. Our wedding photos turned out better than I could have ever dreamed of. She captured so many special moments. Also her special tricks to get us to laugh were hilarious and helped get the coolest photos. Basically if you decide to go with any other photographer then Ashlea, your crazy.

Magic Captured

One of the best choices I made while planning our wedding was to hire Ashlea. She was a pleasure to work with and the results were more than I could've hoped for. Ashlea captured the magic in our day and now I can revisit it whenever I want! I would highly recommend her to anyone!
