I don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! I serve a very specific type of couple who recognizes that if they want joyful, genuine portraits of themselves, then they need more than just pretty pictures. They need an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with me is determining if I'm the perfect fit for you! If we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ...
STEP ONE :
LETS BE FRIENDS
Yay!! You were made to be a Ashlea Snell Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! I'll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official Ashlea Snell Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....
STEP TWO :
SAVE THE DATES
Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... I will teach you EVERYTHING! I thrive at helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by! That’s all the time I need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session you’ll be featured on the Ashlea Snell Blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.
STEP THREE :
Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, I'll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! I love creating custom timelines for our couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? I work with my AS Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! After 4 1/2 years of photographing weddings in a magazine-quality manner, I know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!
STEP FOUR :
It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let me get to work! I believe in telling the full story of my couples' wedding days and so I never shoot less than 6 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the Ashlea Snell Brides Blog the following WEEK!! I like to share our weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping our couples waiting!
STEP FIVE :
YOUR WEDDING DAY!
After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! I encourage my Ashlea Snell Couples to sit down with your favorite dessert the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!
STEP SIX :
GALLERY & ALBUM DESIGN!
I can't possibly say enough great things about Ashlea and her business! First, Ashlea gave me a bridal book that she wrote which was incredibly helpful and great insight! I referred to it several times in the wedding planning process! Second, the day of our wedding she was SO helpful and amazing. She made my big day stress free and easy! Everyone gave us compliments on our pictures and how it looked like we were genuinely having fun, that is because Ashlea made it so much fun and comfortable for us! Her pictures are amazing, something we will always cherish. I am SO thankful and happy that we got to have her as our photographer! Our wedding day would not have been the same without her! THANK YOU ASHLEA!!!!!
Going with Ashlea Snell for our wedding photographer was the BEST decision we could have made. She gave us everything we were looking for and more! She was so down to earth, personable, and truly excited about photography! She cared about more than just getting our business. She took the time to get to know us. We HIGHLY recommend Ashlea to all future brides and grooms!
If you're looking for a wedding photographer, stop right now and contact Ashlea- she is AMAZING!!! Hands down the best wedding decision we made! When we started our wedding planning, the wedding photographer was at the top of our list of importance. I was looking through instagram trying to find pictures that matched the style that I was wanting when I came across Ashlea's profile. I loved what she had on there and contacted her immediately. She responded to me the same day- seriously the fastest most personal response we received from any wedding vendor. We met Ashlea for the first time at the local Starbucks and knew immediately she was the one. She is the sweetest person ever and feels like a friend from the moment you meet her. From that moment on she was so much more than just our wedding photographer. She answered all of my questions during the wedding planning process about engagement pictures, wedding timeline, vendor recommendations, and seriously any wedding logistical question that came up. I never felt like just another one of her clients, she showed that she cared about our day, took the time to get to know us and was just as excited for the wedding as we were. On the wedding day she went above and beyond! Her and her team made the day run so smooth. We stayed on schedule the entire day, I couldn't believe it! Everything was exactly how we had imagined and she got all of the pictures that we wanted and more. We did a first look and I highly recommend! Ashlea also did an amazing job wrangling our wild wedding party, they were all so impressed with her and commented multiple times on how fun she was. Throughout the day she made sure we had everything we needed and often asked if I needed water or a break. Did I mention she was pregnant and asking me if I needed anything?! Seriously the SWEETEST boss lady out there. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. She showed us our sneak peak at our reception- so cool! We got our entire gallery only 2 weeks after our wedding and we love every single photo. She is outstanding at what she does and we highly recommend booking her as your photographer!!
My love for all of the beauty this state has to offer, is BIG. My highest priority is to cater to our couple's style and vision for their wedding day. Our Collections range from 6-10 hours with one and two photographers. This coverage consists of the most photo opportunities possible, guidance on a photo timeline with lighting and location scouting, vendor referrals to ensure you have the best team possible by your side, as well as a comfortable feeling of confidence that we are going to direct and fulfill your shot list and those things you express to us are of importance to you. Use the contact page to request a pricing guide. We'd love to hear from you!
When you choose a destination wedding, you are planning an event to accommodate an intimate, A-list group of guests. We understand that connecting with all of your vendors beforehand is limited, and we want to be the piece of the puzzle that brings it all together. Serving you beyond the wedding day timeline and arriving a few days before your wedding, allows us to offer additional event coverage, such as welcome or rehearsal dinner, meeting with your site coordinator or wedding planner, as well as making sure we have taken plenty of time to acquaint ourselves with the surroundings and culture. Your coverage it tailored to exactly what you need to create a personalized experience. Receive a risk free quote here and tell us all about your wedding plans so far!
Elopements are truly an intimate experience. We have shot elopements in the small town of Wisconsin and also have shot elopements on an overlook, looking over the gorgeous town of Luzern, Switzerland. Each elopement is special, and we know that! We have packages that include vendors who will officiate, and plan your entire elopement near or far along with packages with just a photographer. Use the contact form and let us know what your vision is and I promise we will make it happen!
