ASHLEY

OWNER / LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I'm Ashley! I am convinced that photographing weddings is the best job in the world! When you book with me, you are choosing to work with someone who genuinely cares about you and the vision of your celebration. 

My imagery is a blend of documentary and editorial with vibrant, true to color editing. 

F.A.Q.s

Now, allow me to introduce some of the amazing people who work by my side! 

How many photos will we receive? I average 75-100 images per hour of coverage and deliver all the best images from your day! The total number of images in a gallery varies based on length of coverage, number of photographers, number of guests, etc.

Do you edit the photos? All images are edited. Editing includes color correction, cropping, straightening, sharpening, and lighting adjustments. I do light touch ups on skin and removing distractions from the background. 

Do you help with posing? Absolutely! I will guide you through poses that highlight your personality as a couple so you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. I am also comfortable taking charge to organize others during family and group portraits.

We don't want a lot of "posed" portraits. Are you comfortable with just documenting the day as it unfolds? I am happy to be a fly on the wall when it comes to documenting your day! I strongly encourage having a call with me before your wedding so I know important moments and people to be extra conscious of documenting!

Do you provide coverage for elopements or micro weddings? Yes, I offer A La Carte pricing for couples who only need a few hours of coverage! For more information, please view my Investment Guide

Do you travel outside of Texas? I do! Travel fees vary based on location and time of year. 

When and how will our images be delivered? You will receive 2-3 announcement images from me via text within 48 hours of your wedding! Your full gallery will be ready within 30 days and is delivered in an online gallery. 

What is required to book with you? To ensure your date is on the RLP calendar, a signed services agreement and 20% non-refundable booking fee is required. 

Do you have business insurance? I do! Some venues request proof of insurance for services to be permitted. If you venue requires this, please let me know and I'll be happy to submit that over to them!

I would love to work with you but I have a few more questions... Planning a wedding is a big deal, I would love to answer those questions for you! You can schedule a call with me or send me an email! I look forward to meeting you!

F.A.Q.s

What is an iPhone Videography? Vintage camcorder wedding videos are the inspiration behind offering iPhone videography. With the advancement of smartphone camera technology, it it is an affordable video option for couples who want to relive the authentic love and laughter or their wedding day. 

What kind of video do we get? After documenting your wedding day memories, Josh creates two separate videos for you to enjoy. The first is a 2.5-3 minute Highlight Video. The second is an 7-10 minute iPhone Home Video that includes extra footage of all the best moments from your day. 

Can you record audio? Yes! We have equipment that connect to our iPhone to record audio. These can be used to capture audio from the ceremony, record your vows being read, and even do guest interviews!

Do you record videos in portrait or landscape? All videos are shot landscape for optimal viewing on your computer or television. All content creation is shot in portrait for optimal viewing on your smartphone. If you have a preference though, we can certainly adjust! 

When and how do I receive our video? Your Highlight Video and Home Video will be available in your gallery so you can download them. Additionally, they will be available on the Rivers Light Photography YouTube page to make sharing with loved ones easy! 

You will also receive a Dropbox link with the individual raw videos!

Do you edit the color or lighting of the videos? Majority of the videos will be in their natural format. Light edits may be made to adjust lighting or color grading as needed.

What’s up, I’m Josh! My fondest memories growing up as a child were watching old family VHS tapes. However, since the introduction of the camera phone those long format videos gotten phased out. This inspired me to bring back the magic of the home video through a mix of elegant shots and candid moments all captured on a smartphone. You’ll love getting to replay your wedding day through the eyes of your guests and reliving your special moments for years to come!

Josh has over ten years working in the production industry. His work ranges from being a dancer, choreographer, actor, director and producer. With his eye for production, Josh leverages his experience on your wedding day in order to capture moments on camera and retell your story.
