Experience

 

Ashley Wilbur Photography provides a Luxury Photographic Experience. Clients can expect to receive the highest level of care and attention. Every session and wedding is planned out carefully to ensure the best possible coverage tailored to suit your style and needs. I provide a complete experience from the initial consultation to the Design Session where we work together to select the items that will hang on your walls and be gifted to your family. Every product that I offer is of heirloom quality, will last a lifetime and be the most cherished of your possessions through the years.

Couples Portraits

Couple’s Session

Perfect for your engagement announcement, a save-the-date card, an anniversary or just to celebrate the love you share. Documenting who you are and how you are right now is a great way to build your legacy and to tell your story for generations to come. Plan one of these sessions before your wedding day to take the pressure off of being in front of the camera. Use it as an opportunity to work with me, tell me what you like and make the Big Day go that much more smoothly.

  • Pre-session consultation, in person or Skype/Facetime

Custom Wedding Coverage

Custom Wedding Coverage

I take a more photojournalistic, or candid, approach to your wedding day. I want you to remember your day just as it was when you look back through your photos. I want you to remember the feel of the silk and lace of your dress against your skin, still smell the sweet aroma of your bridal bouquet and feel the emotion when you locked eyes with your love waiting for you at the other end of the isle. With the images I create for you this will all be possible.

  • Custom photographic coverage for up to 8 hours
  • 2 photographers
  • The first 15 spreads of your 8 x 12 Heirloom Album
  • Featured blog entry within 1 week of your wedding day

What should I wear?

My first rule is to wear what makes you feel amazing! If you feel your best in a soft t-shirt, worn jeans and your Chuck Taylor’s (my favorite outfit!) then rock it! If you don’t feel good in your clothes it will show on the film. This goes for you too guys! It is most important to be true to yourself and your style. For a Newborn Experience it is best to wear light-colored, neutral, well fitting tops. Your bottom half won’t be photographed to get loungy and comfy!

Can I bring a friend?

I am all for support from the sidelines. If it will make you relax more during your session or your friend can provide help then please by all means. If your dog happens to be the friend you’d like to bring then more power to you!

I have specific poses in mind

If you’re inspired by an image or attracted to a certain look I want to know it! A word on Pinterest… this site is an amazing resource when planning a photoshoot. However, I encourage you to look at my own galleries first. Pinterest is great for inspiration, not replication.

What’s your travel cost?

For Weddings and Couple’s Sessions I include up to 100 miles (round trip) Additional travel is billed at $.75 per mile. If we travel far far away then I will ask that you reserve me a room with similar accommodations that you would expect for yourself or your guests. All Newborn Experience are done in my studio.

What if it rains?

A little rain has never stopped me! Some of my favorite experiences with my couples has been during a rainy spell. However, if that isn’t your thing, I am happy to reschedule your session for a clear day. Rain on a wedding day is just part of your story. Just remember that a wet knot ties the tightest.

Retainer?

I require a retainer for all services. For portrait sessions it is the 50% of the session fee and for weddings it is about 30% of the total coverage package. Retainers are due at the time of booking and are non-refundable. Money paid acts as a retainer for my services and guarantees your spot in my calendar. If plans change, that’s OK, I will transfer funds to a different time, location or shoot type based on your needs.
