ASHLEE COLE

Chicago and Destination Wedding Photographer

You did it! One of you popped the question and the other said YES! I am so very excited for this special season of your lives. There are so many fun times ahead and I would be a total liar if I said I didn’t want to absolutely be a HUGE part of it by being your number one HYPE girl!

Listen, wedding planning is hard and overwhelming at times. That is why you deserve to have an experienced wedding photographer to help guide you through this part of the planning process. Give me the stress and I’ll take care of everything photo related! I am so thankful to have been a part of over 100 weddings in the last 3 years! If you love the fine art look, laughing A LOT, and timeless images. Let’s be new best friends!

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.   

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!

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. 

The 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.

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.

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!
