Ashley Rae here, and I happily work alongside my husband running the everyday operations here at Ashley Rae Studio. We are a fine art photo and video team, and he is my better half. He takes care of all the things behind our business that require technical genius and business ingenuity. I am the creative. The inspired artist. I became a photographer because put simply, the first time I took engagement photos for a family friend, I felt my soul set on fire! Ever since then, I have been dedicated to creating imagery through my lens that illuminates human emotions and reveals understated beauty in its purest form. Weddings offer me the most incredible environment to do this, and I feel blessed each day to have a career doing something I love. I value the couples my husband and I work with tremendously and strive to document their wedding day in a way that is timeless and unique to their personal love story.
Favorite memory from our wedding: There was a moment we sat down to eat our dinner at the sweetheart table. All of the guests at our wedding had to pass by our table on the way through the dinner line, which wasn’t planned. We were able to visit with each guest as they came by. Even though we barely were able to eat our dinner, it was worth all the beautiful conversations and laughs we had with each of the people we love! Also, we walked down the aisle to the song, “We are going to be friends” by the White Stripes. Another favorite moment! My ideal day: Waking up early and sitting outside in the morning sun with an extra hot cappuccino topped with super fluffy foam. Cuddling with my dog and drinking coffee with my husband while we chat about life, goals, and artistic inspiration. Later, walking on the beach barefoot while breathing in the salty air and thinking about how I can deepen my gratitude for what I have been blessed with in this life.
Lastly, having a homemade meal with people I love, along with a well-prepared cocktail (maybe two) and laughing until our stomachs hurt and we are fighting to not pee our pants. Definitely a perfect day!
