ASHLEE COLE

Chicago and Destination Wedding Photographer

This is the moment you have been waiting for and things can get a little intense while putting everything together. I promise you will feel right at ease when my team and I are by your side through this journey. Let us take the stress away so you can focus on being totally into each other on your wedding day! 



THE HEART BEHIND my WORK

the Process

You've thoroughly combed through my website, blog and Instagram feed and you like what you see. So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another. I love going through past galleries with you over a Google Meet so you can get an idea of what things will look like.    

Let's Chat!

the process —

Once your date is officially reserved, I'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. I'm happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more! There are no silly questions!

Date Booked!

the process —

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. If you would like to use your photos for save the dates or on your wedding day, I recommend scheduling at least 6 months in advance.

The Engagement Session

the process —

I check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. If you have any surprises, I need to know about those, too!

Wedding Prep

the process —

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know I'm  excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome, leave the work to my team and I; enjoy your day!

The Big Day

the process —

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about 45-60 days of your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

They're Here!
