If you're searching for a wedding photographer in Chicago, the midwest or even across the globe and you've made a connection to my work, here are a few things to know about working together and how my booking process works.

What to Know About Working Together

I realize this may seem counterintuitive, but I don't email pricing. Instead, I share a typical investment range and then invite couples to schedule a call. This allows us to build a relationship and understand what you want and need which, believe it or not, a lot of couples don't fully know until they talk it through.

If we agree we're a mutually good fit, I'll craft a custom proposal with my recommended amount of coverage to capture every moment and experience you've been dreaming about. 

Yes, you may have a dollar amount written down in a spreadsheet, but the value of photography is based entirely on your connection to it. Photography can be worth everything and nothing. 

My goal as a photographer is to create the best work I can for the people who feel most inspired by it, while living a balanced, well rounded life in the process.

Custom Proposals

I'm very open and honest about my work and will share full gallery wedding day samples with you and talk through your vision to make sure we are creatively aligned in the way you want your wedding photos to look and feel. 

I've photographed well over 300 weddings in my 15+ year career, and will work closely with you throughout the planning process to make sure your photos are beautiful beyond your dreams.

Understanding your vision

To give my clients the best experience possible, I limit my bookings to no more than 10 weddings per year.

I value building relationships with each of my clients so that I can capture the nuances of your love in a way that feels perfectly you.

Limiting my bookings to a handful of weddings per year ensures that I can give each of my clients my full attention, truly get to know you so you feel seen on your wedding day and create my best work.

Limited Commissions

Working with Ashley was an absolute dream! 

She has a very special way of making you feel like you have been friends with her for years which led to amazing shots that we will cherish forever.

Working with her will be the best decision you make!
