A Five Simple Step Process

next step >

Set up a time to connect with me so I can learn about your wedding, your love story, and what you are envisioning for your big day. Out-of-state? No worries. Many of my brides are planning their wedding from afar.

1. Schedule a Consultation 

After our consultation, you’ll receive an online proposal to review, sign, and pay your 40% retainer then it’s time to prep and warm up for the big day with a fun engagement session. Don’t worry if you or your fiancé aren’t comfortable in front of the camera, I’ll direct you every step of the way. 

2. Save the Date and Book Your Engagement Session 

Eight weeks before your wedding, I’ll work with you on your day-of-timeline so we can make sure to capture the moments you’ve been dreaming of all this time. I know you’ve been carefully planning each detail, so I’ll work with your wedding planner or vendor to make sure we have exactly what we need for all those gorgeous detail shots. 

3. Feel Confident Ahead of Time 

One of the most unique elements of my service is that in addition to myself, I provide a second shooter to capture your day. Between the two of us we make sure everything goes smoothly. We’ll direct as necessary and then step into the background to document those priceless, naturally-occuring moments in-between. 

4. Enjoy Your Wedding Day

It’s time to relive your day! Images will be delivered six weeks following your wedding. We know it’s hard to wait so I make sure you have plenty of sneak peeks to show off on your honeymoon. All of your images will be uploaded to an online gallery that’s easy to share with friends and family.

Nicole, Bride

"If I could give Ashley 10 stars, I would! I absolutely adored working with her, not only on our wedding day, but throughout the entire planning process. She was such a huge help. Her energy is incredible and she is one of the kindest people I have ever met. My husband and I could not be happier with our wedding photos! She truly is very talented in more ways than one. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer."

Kayla & Brandon, Bride & Groom

"My husband and I hired Ashley last September for our engagement and wedding pictures. She is absolutely amazing! From our first meet to the big day, she made us feel comfortable and relaxed which allowed us to be ourselves and capture a ton of memories. Every picture she took told a story. Ashley is a natural with her camera and an absolute sweetheart. She exceeded our expectations and we can not recommend her enough."

Madison, Bride

"Ashley is incredible to work with. Along with being our photographer for our wedding next year, she also took our engagement pictures recently and they are gorgeous! My Fiancé and I haven't been in front of the camera before and she made us feel so comfortable and guided us through the shoot, capturing a variety of shots. It was almost hard to choose! I have a lot of reasons to be excited to get married, but I am looking forward to the beautiful pictures I will have afterwards to remember that day forever."

Jessica, Bride

"Choosing Ashley as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Ashley was extremely responsive and enthusiastic from the start, always willing to offer suggestions for our small intimate wedding. When the big day arrived, she was extremely generous with her time, making us feel like truly valued clients. Her professionalism and kind demeanor made the day easy on us and our families and these qualities are certainly reflected in her talent; our photos are incredibly beautiful! We can not recommend Ashley enough, and are grateful to her for helping make our wedding so memorable!"

Nathaly, Bride

"Ashley captured our wedding and engagement pictures and I can’t tell you how beautiful they turned out! She is so talented and truly makes her photos look like art!!! On top of being so talented and professional, she has a big heart!! you can tell how much she loves and enjoys what she is doing. She deserves a million stars!!!!!!"

Amy, Bride

"When I first contacted Ashley her quick and fun responses drew me right in. She was interested in our story and wanted to get to know more about my fiancé and I. When we met for our engagement picture session, Ashley was very enthusiastic and made us feel so comfortable. Ashley is so fun but professional. Ashley was so prompt with getting our proofs and even quicker with editing our photos. Her photography skills are absolutely amazing. She has a great eye and every picture shows our personality. We cannot wait for Ashley to capture our wedding day next year!! "

Brittany, Bride

"Ashley is incredibly talented at what she does. Not only in her photography skills, (which are AMAZING by the way).... but also in the way she connects with her clients. By then end of our engagement session, well heck, even before we met, we were friends! After seeing our engagement photos, and then attending a family wedding, I had a close family member tell us what a difference in her work, compared to the photographer at that wedding..... the exact words were “she really sets the bar high”........ and Ashley does! We are incredibly grateful and blessed to have found her. We live 4+ hours away, and we could have not found anyone we would be happier with. We can’t wait to see our wedding photos!


Katelyn, Bride

"I cannot say enough good things about Ashley Bassett Photography. Ashley is an exceptional photographer, and we’re fortunate to have found her for our Northern Michigan Wedding. Communication from the beginning was smooth, timely and professional. She helped me map out my wedding day timeline and she is literally willing to help you with anything. This has been extremely beneficial as we finalize the details of our wedding. When it comes to taking photos, Ashley is always up for adventure. We had so much taking our engagement pictures at a winery in Traverse City. The end product was exactly what we were looking for, great photos that perfectly captured us! We had so many people reach out to us and RAVE about our pictures.. Ashley really pays attention to detail, not only in her photographs, but in every aspect of the service and product which she provides. Couldn't recommend her and her services enough!"
