A look back at 2016

Ashley Ludaescher Photography

I had so much fun looking back at the last year and the amazing couples we worked with and their incredible weddings we were able to photograph. Our work brought us to some beautiful places including Rome, Tuscany, Positano, Paris, Vienna, Prague, Berlin, Bavaria, San Francisco, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, Boston, Cape Cod, the South of France, Provence, and my beautiful hometown of San Luis Obispo, California. This year was definitely one for the books but not without its challenges as we made some big changes in both our business and personal lives. Andreas joined me full time which makes life a whole lot sweeter and a lot more fun to always have a travel partner. :) I cannot wait for what 2017 has in store for us, I have a feeling it is going to be a great year. Here is a selection of some of my favorite images from our weddings, engagements and travels in 2016.

Alice


I was thrilled to be in Berlin right before the lovely Alice Williamson moved to London and we found time to collaborate. It was a fun opportunity to play with movement, light and different black and white film stocks. The grace of dancers is always so inspiring.

Alice is an incredibly talented dancer and creative. See more of her work on her instagram and website.

Sabine & JacobSchloss Nikitsch, Austria

Schloss Nikitsch Wedding Photographer Austria

Sabine & Jacob’s wedding celebration at Nikitsch Castle in Austria was such a unique and beautiful celebration planning and styled by the talented ladies of A Very Beloved Wedding. Sabine & Jacob share a love of traveling, food and shisha and their wedding incooporated all three beautifully. There were so many special details- I loved how herbs and vegetables were brought into the wedding styling and the market stands served up the most beautiful dinner buffet I have ever seen.

Kristen & AdrianMount Tamalpais, Marin County, California

Mount Tam Engagement Photos

When Kristen, Adrian and I planned their engagement session together, we had envisioned the beautiful golden hour light for their Mount Tam engagement photos. On our drive over the bridge into Marin County, the fog started to get thicker and once we met them for the shoot, the sun had all but disappeared. But personally, I think the fog is even more beautiful and romantic in the photos! I always try and find beauty in the unexpected, this was one of those moments when the unexpected surpassed our expectations! I love the way film rendered the tones of the fog and golden hills. I can’t wait to share their wedding images, it was such a gorgeous celebration!

Kat & Vishal | German – Indian Wedding Celebration

Multicultural Indian Wedding Photographer California

Katharina & Vishal’s multicultural Indian Wedding was so much fun to photograph. I always love seeing how my clients blend traditions and cultures to create a memorable and unique wedding celebration. Their German/Indian wedding started with a traditional Indian Baraat, followed by a traditional Indian wedding ceremony and ended with a black tie wedding reception. The colors were incredible and I loved how they were captured on film!
