Welcome to our world of celebrating alongside couples on the most precious day of their lives, where we create timeless memories through the lenses of our artistry. We are a premier wedding photography and cinematography company based in the beautiful city of San Luis Obispo, California. With a passion for crafting exquisite imagery and storytelling, we take pride in documenting weddings not just locally, but also across the globe.

      Our approach to photography and cinematography is rooted in the belief that each wedding is a masterpiece waiting to be unveiled. We combine a blend of contemporary and fine art techniques to capture the essence, emotions, and intricate details that make your day truly extraordinary. Our goal is to deliver a collection of images and films that not only take you back to the cherished moments but also evoke the same joy and emotion you felt on your wedding day.




      I am the proud owner and photographer behind Ashley Rae Studio. As a born creative, I am deeply passionate about capturing love stories through the art of photography. Fine art wedding photography and cinematography are my background, and film photography is my area of expertise. Over the years, I have dedicated myself to mastering the delicate balance between digital and film photography techniques. This enables me to infuse a unique and timeless quality into every piece of my work.

      My approach is both editorial and authentic, with a strong focus on capturing the true essence and emotions of each wedding I document. I firmly believe that every couple has a distinctive story to tell, and it is my mission to showcase their love in a way that is both captivating and genuine. I pour my attention into every detail and possess the ability to anticipate and seize fleeting moments, making me a true artist behind the lens.

      My journey into the world of photography was sparked by my fascination with storytelling and visual expression. Over many years, I have honed my skills in photography and developed a keen eye for composition, lighting, and aesthetics. It was this dedication that led me to establish Ashley Rae Studio, where I could fully immerse myself in the realm of wedding photography and cinematography.

      Beyond my technical expertise, I am known for providing relaxed artistic direction to all my couples so that they can feel at ease in front of the camera. I also firmly believe in providing a “White Glove” client experience. From our initial consultation to the final delivery of meticulously edited photographs and films, I go above and beyond to ensure that my client’s expectations are not only met but exceeded. My artistry and dedication have earned Ashley Rae Studio a reputation as a trusted name in luxury wedding photography and cinematography.

      When I’m not behind the camera, I love enjoying a day at the beach with my husband and our puppy Cooper. My passion for travel and adventure allows me to infuse my work with diverse influences and perspectives, resulting in captivating and truly one-of-a-kind imagery.



      At our core, we are Ashley Rae and an exceptional in-studio team of master photographers and cinematographers. We take immense pride in all our team members’ expertise and professionalism.
