ASHLEY

With nearly 15 years of professional experience, Ashley's photographic journey ranges from travel photography to fashion editorial work. She is one of a handful of wedding photographers who is formally trained, earning a BA in Commercial Photography & Portraiture from Brooks Institute of Photography. Her photography work first took her to Paris, and ultimately brought her to Germany where she met Andreas. The two have been working and traveling together ever since. Currently based on the picturesque central coast of California with their French bulldog, Hazel, their passports find them photographing destination weddings for their incredible clients around the world.

Client Love Notes

Alicia & Justin

"We are so grateful Ashley and Andreas were one of our wedding planner’s recommended photographers. We spent a long time looking at all of the photographers and I had a hard time choosing since I knew the pictures of us and our families was something immensely important to us. I finally turned to my brother who is also a photographer and he said Ashley’s pictures were the most artistic and really captured emotion. That was all the reassuring I needed to hear. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, they are true artists!

On our big day Ashley and Andreas were focused, professional and attentive but also so much fun during all the time in between. Group shots were fast, smooth and efficient, and they know exactly how to direct you for individual shots. The images of our special day are something we will always cherish and we couldn’t be more thankful for entrusting that job to Ashley and Andreas."

“From the moment I saw Ashley’s beautiful work, I knew she was the perfect wedding photographer for us. Patrick and I aren’t the types who love being in front of the camera, and I let Ashley know that early on. She and Andreas made it feel natural and stress-free, and they are genuinely nice, fun people to spend time with. Ashley was totally in sync with our wedding planner, florist, and other vendors, which helped us relax during the wedding weekend. Patrick and I couldn’t be happier with the photos, and our families feel the same way. Couples who have the opportunity to work with Ashley should 100% take it!”

“My husband and I hired Ashley twice: Once for our engagement photos in Madrid, and again for our wedding in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France. The work is stunning — that’s a given. But also important was how she and Andreas made us feel at ease throughout the entire process. Communication was super simple. Of course there were certain shots we wanted to get, but Ashley so seamlessly navigated us through a photo session that felt more like a natural hangout among friends — which really decreased our stress levels! She’s a complete professional, and we are so glad we trusted her and her team to record such a special event.”

“Ashley’s work is original, innovative and professional. Her experience photographing weddings internationally and locally is reflected in the uniqueness of her aesthetic. She has the ability to adapt to any setting, and capture the essence of the surrounding environment and personalities of her clients. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos; she made us feel at ease and created a space where we could be ourselves. Ashley has the ability to take a combination of candid and posed shots that look elegant and feel natural. Our photos express who we are as a couple and embody the love, joy and romance of our special day. We especially loved how she shot with both film and digital, which resulted in a range of photos with distinctive sensibilities. She is a wonderful artist and is professional and reliable every step of the way. I promise you will be pleased and most likely surprised by the beauty of her work.”
