The Ashleigh Miller Wedding & Elopement Experience:
I know there is a lot going on as you begin planning your wedding day. My goal is to not just be one of your vendors, but to help make your wedding day as easy as possible, while also delivering artwork you’ll treasure for a lifetime. If you select me as your Wedding or Elopement Photographer, here’s the process we’ll go through!
Let’s all get to know each other! We’ll connect via Facetime or Skype, so I can ask questions to get to know you and your vision for your special day, and answer any questions you have!
Reserve the Date
If we’re feeling like hiking buddies already, let's get your dates scheduled! We’ll get the ball rolling by reserving your date with an initial retainer payment and an officially signed online contract!
Are you ready for an adventure? When you’re ready, you’ll complete a short questionnaire together to share a little more about you two and we’ll plan an incredible shoot around your answers. Then we’ll schedule your engagement shoot adventure! Planning to use the images for Save-the-Dates or on your wedding website? We’ll schedule your engagement shoot at least 6 months out from your wedding date.
Receive Engagement Images
Y'all are going to cherish these times together! You’ll receive images from your Engagement Shoot within 20 days. I’ll send you a link to a client online gallery with approximately 30-50 images. You’ll have digital usage rights to download any and all of the images for personal use only, and you can order prints, frames and albums directly through the gallery!
Wedding Day Planning
2 months out: I’ll send you a Wedding Day Questionnaire, Vendor Questionnaire, and suggested Wedding Day Timeline.
1 month out: I’ll schedule a short review meeting for us to review the timeline once more and confirm all details.
1 week out: We’ll have one more quick chat to wrap up any loose ends before your special day!
Your Wedding Day
The planning is done - nothing left to do but celebrate!! I’ll start the day with photographing the gals getting dolled up, and the guys figuring out how cufflinks work. We’ll follow the flow of the day’s events, capturing intimate moments between the two of you; formal family portraits; all the little details, from the cake topper to the centerpieces; and the crazy, fun moments with your wedding party.
I’ll be there with you for all the giggles and all the happy tears, so you can remember every moment! The day flies by so fast, but I’ll be there to make sure the memories last forever.
Photography Viewing Date Night
Let’s make the first time you see your gallery a special date night! I want you to view your wedding day together, snuggling on your couch drinking a microbrew listening to your favorite music track, taking in your day. You two will choose a date for Gallery Date Night and I’ll deliver the images at 5pm for y’all to view that evening together, without any distractions! I’ll send you a link to an online client gallery where you have full digital usage rights to download and use all the images for personal use. There’s also an option to order photo prints directly through the online gallery to make things easy!
What will your grandchildren flip through? It so important that you get your photographs off your electronics and into your hands. In the gallery there is a shop where you’ll find several options for keeping your memories tangible. My favorite is the heirloom album. You can choose to design it yourself, or I’d be happy to design the album that best fits the story of your day. Not only is this a great way for you to have tangible memories of your special day — they also make great gifts for your parents! With a variety of options to choose from, we’ll put together the perfect collection of memories.
WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I was so happy that I went with Ashleigh for my wedding photos. Ashleigh has such a warm, happy personality, I had so much fun being around her all day. She really went above and beyond for our wedding and our photos show it. She captured great candid moments and made the staged photos feel natural as well. We are having a hard time deciding what photos to put in the album since they are all so beautiful. Leading up to the wedding Ashleigh was responsive and just such a pleasure to work with. One of my bridesmaids even hired her for her maternity photos after seeing the great work she does! Hoping I can have another event that I can use Ashleigh again!
- MICHELLE & ALLEN
Ashleigh was such a joy to work with. She captured our day perfectly! She was easy to work with, fun to be around and extremely professional.
- JENNY & ALLEN
After we did the engagement shoot, the results were amazing and any fears I had about my wedding day faded away. Ashleigh calmed my fears on my wedding morning, telling me "You're not late, they can't start without you!" and "Rain makes for fantastic lighting in the pictures- it's perfect!". She was calm, kind, but direct with my outspoken family. She has a great vision and captured the beauty of our venue and also made me feel truly beautiful. She embraced our silly personalities and let that show through, but also got some wonderful pictures that showed all of the love that we felt.
- KATE & IAN
Ashleigh has been so hands on throughout our whole engagement, wedding and newlywed process. She made us feel extremely comfortable with all the picture taking and became part of our family on our wedding day! Ashleigh goes above and beyond and we loved having her sharing our special day with us and look forward to working with her again in the future.
- VERONICA & JASON
My now-husband and I felt comfortable with Ashleigh as soon as we met her. She has a sweet, laid-back, calm personality and I honestly enjoyed having her around throughout our wedding day. Her candid shots were amazing, which in my opinion is what really sets apart a good photographer from an amazing photographer. I couldn’t be happier with our photos!
- GRETCHEN & NATE
I are so grateful for the photos Ashleigh was able to capture for us! We have wonderful shots of my husband and I, our family, and the celebration, but Ashleigh also added the artistic and creative touch to the set of pictures... one of the last shots she took of the night was outside the venue (Space Gallery) and she got an epic urban shot that we enlarged and hung on our dining room wall. When people come over they admire the artwork, but when they realize it was from our wedding (which a lot of our friends attended) the artwork becomes that much more special and continues to connect us. I would recommend Ashleigh to anyone who wants the essence of their wedding capture in photo form. Thanks Ashleigh!!!
- SARAH & BRIAN
We decided to have Ashleigh do the entire package from engagement all the way to traveling up to Aspen to shoot our wedding in Fall. When we first worked with her on our engagement shoot, we felt an immediate calmness and relaxed vibe about her. The photos turned out perfect and we used them as gifts and to include in the Save the Date cards. Then, she really impressed us with our wedding photos and we could not have asked for a better photographer! She managed to take photos of every single moment from when the girls were getting ready, to the groom writing his vows, to the dancing in the late night. It was a magical day and she captured the entire thing through her amazing skills! In addition to her excellent photography skills, she also has a great business sense. She’s responsive, organized, professional, thoughtful, low-stress and her prices are reasonable. We have received so many compliments on our photos and now our friends and family want to work with her. She’s a true gem and I was so happy that she was a part of our wedding.
