"Couples who have the opportunity to work with Ashley should 100% take it!"
“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!”

“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.”

"Ashley so seamlessly navigated us through a photo session that felt more like a natural hangout among friends"
“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.”

"Partnering with Ashley and Andreas to capture our wedding was undoubtedly the best decision and investment that we made"
"Partnering with Ashley and Andreas to capture our wedding was undoubtedly the best decision and investment that we made. From our very first conversation, it was clear that the Ludaeschers were the dream team we had been searching for. In addition to their unequivocal talent, they are organized and detail oriented, anticipatory, warm and engaging. They captured our special day thoroughly and perfectly, leaving us with vibrant and organic images that will enable us to re-live and share some of the happiest moments of our lives for generations to come. We could not be more grateful to Ashley and Andreas for bringing these memories to life!"

"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"
"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."

Ashley is a perfect balance of creativity and professionalism - truly unparalleled!
Ashley is a perfect balance of creativity and professionalism - truly unparalleled! Planning a wedding can be hectic enough, so it’s beneficial to work with professional, reliable people who genuinely want the best for you and your wedding. We chose Ashley as our photographer and she was exactly that. In all our collaboration with Ashley she was very friendly, insightful and thoughtful. Before the wedding day, she guided a few planning conversations that helped us tap into our creative side and identify moments that would be important to capture. For example, she researched sunset times to make sure we could fit in a sunset shoot on the wedding day, as that was important to us. Then on the big day, her high-energy personality brought out the best in us and our guests. She kept a pulse on everyone, and captured once in a lifetime moments that we would not have witnessed otherwise. We are forever grateful to Ashley and her fabulous team!
