Found Ashley on wedding wire and got so lucky that I was getting married on a random weekday and she had availability! I fell in love with her style and she stood out ten fold compared to every other photographer I was checking out to book.Sent on 08/03/2018
Not only is she amazing her and her husband have the BEST energy and are so easy to work with. Both my husband and I have huge families and she was able to herd everyone and get the best shots of every aspect. When she sent me the photos I cried at every one of them and I am not even a crier!
Her prices are MORE than fair for getting such magical, intimate and vibrant photos that will last a lifetime. She also traveled from SLO to shoot our wedding in ojai and Thousand Oaks and was totally on time and prepared. I couldn’t give her a better review she nailed every aspect of a photographer that I could ask for. We are definitely keeping her in mind for our future family photos! Thank you so much Ashley!

An incredible team with outstanding work!
Ashley Rae Studio is simply incredible!! We hired Ashley for photography (engagement photos + wedding day) along with her husband Caleb for videography. They are an unstoppable team and a worthy investment! Ashley was beyond helpful in coordinating a difficult engagement session (it rained on us, we were travelling from out of town, had to find new locations, and so on!) and the photos turned out AMAZING. She also went above + beyond for our (extremely detailed) wedding day and even did some gorgeous film shots. Caleb is so unbelievably sweet and will instantly put you at ease even with a camera in your face. Both A+C made us feel so comfortable and their team of second shooters were equally amazing to work with. Ashley Rae Studio is dedicated to producing the highest quality work possible, they are extremely flexible and hardworking beyond what we could've imagined, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for fine art, clean, romantic and contemporary photography and videography services. From the detailed and intimate moments to the expressive and celebratory one, Ashley Rae Studio will capture them all stunningly!Sent on 09/12/2019

My fiancé and I were so grateful to have Ashley as our photographer! She was gorgeous inside and out. We were so nervous being in front of the camera and Ashley made sure to make us feel comfortable. We felt awkward just because we’re not use to getting our pictures taken professionally but she made us look amazing. We are so in love with our pictures as well as the video! Thank you to Caleb as well. He was so sweet and did an extraordinary job on the video. We are more than thankful for the amazing job they did and felt like our friends were doing a fun photo shoot for us that turned out professional. Thank you, Ashley and Caleb!!Sent on 07/06/2018
