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.Sent on 30/07/2018

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

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!Sent on 13/12/2019

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!Sent on 17/02/2020

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.Sent on 08/12/2019
