things i love

I’m Ashlea Snell, a southern girl and Wisconsin wedding photographer, serving the best couples in the WORLD. After working at Chick-fil-A for so many years they instilled in my mind how important people are. Caring for people, LOVING everyone you meet and serving them to the best of your ability!

I have that southern charm that will keep your mom and dad in good care throughout your wedding day, and also helping your grandma up the stairs during family formals.

I actually take time to get to know my couples on a deep personal level so that you can TRUST me to show up on your wedding day and you can actually take a deep breath and feel relieved that “Ashlea’s here, I know it will get taken care of”.

Listen, there are so many photographers out there. But I also know you, I know you don’t just want a photographer - you want THE photographer. The photographer that will help you bustle your dress throughout the day and get you a water if you’re in the receiving line and you’re too busy to get one. I have got you, sweet bride. You deserve the best.

Second Shooter with Ashlea Snell

I know you're dreaming and pinning on Pinterest all the incredible details, florals and those emotional photos of grooms seeing their love for the first time on their wedding day.

I’m here to tell you that you don’t only need those intimate, genuine pictures - but you DESERVE them.

These photos will be passed on from generation to generation and one day your granddaughter will have tear drops in her eyes while she looks at the beautiful album her grandparents left behind.

girl, i know you

It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks of my job. I have emails and edits and blog posts and albums and shoots to keep up with on a daily basis, but I know that those things are just tasks that need to be done and they aren’t the heartbeat of my business. I truly believe that my interactions and experiences that I give my couples are a special opportunity! God has blessed me with the ability to not only do what I love as my career, but He also brings AMAZING people into my life in the process. I believe that I have been given this business and my gifts for the purpose of serving others and bringing joy into my couples' lives! There is no greater feeling than seeing my work bring my couples and their families to tears! I leave wedding days with big hugs, kisses on the cheeks, and full hearts knowing that I forever impacted two families!

MY MISSION in this business is to glorify God with how I serve my clients, and use my gifts to create a joyful experience for our clients!

I believe the marriage is greater than the wedding day
