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!
Initial Pre-Booking Consultation
I like to sit down and get to know both you and your fiance! We can grab a cup of joe, lord knows I always need some coffee or meet up for happy hour because that tripel has my name written all over it! I can also do a FaceTime or Skype call if that’s more convenient. We’ll get to know one another and I can answer any questions you have.
After our first meeting we need to make things official. And no, I’m not talking, “put a ring on it” he already did that! I’ll send you a contract that you both sign and collect your retainer to seal your date. Baboom all done, it’s official and all done online to make things simple! I’ll also send you over a list of vendors I just love working with!
I want you two to have photographs that capture you in your element. So if you’re anything like me, that’s outside in nature! I’ll give you a short questionnaire to fill out that helps you narrow down ideas for the engagement shoot that fully showcases you two together. We’ll want to do that around 6 months prior to the wedding, especially if you plan on using these images in Save the Dates or for your wedding website.
Receive Engagement Images
You can expect to receive images from your Engagement Shoot within 20 days. I’ll send you a link to a client portal with approximately 30-50 images. You have full digital rights to download these files. There’s also an option to order photo prints directly through the gallery that are the best fine art quality!
Wedding Day Planning
Approximately 2 months before your wedding, I’ll send you a Wedding Day Questionnaire, Vendor Questionnaire, and suggested Wedding day Timeline. These will help make sure we’re on the same page and that I’ve planned for all of the moments you’d like to have captured.
About one month before the big day, we’ll have a timeline meeting to review the plan I’ve put together based on your Questionnaire and make any adjustments needed.
I’ll set up a short phone call for us the week of your wedding to go through any final details before things get too hectic!
Your Wedding Day
The big day has arrived!! However, since we’ve already planned everything out, there’s nothing to worry about and we can just celebrate! The wedding day starts with photographing the gals getting all dolled up and the guys figuring out how cufflinks work. Then we’ll flow with the day’s events, all the way to the dance party. In between, I’ll capture intimate moments of just you two; formal family portraits; all the details you planned 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
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 will choose a date night to receive your images when you are available to make a night of it. You can expect to receive approximately 600 - 1000 images from your Wedding. I’ll send you a link to a 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!
It so important that you get your photographs off your electronics and in your hands. In the gallery there is a shop you will find a variety of ways to keep your memories tangible. One of my favorite is always a heirloom album. You can choose to design it yourself or I’d be happy to design the album that best fits into the story of the day. Not only is this a great way for you to have tangible memories of your special day, but these 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.
