Who we are
The Wedding Artists Co. is an artists’ rep company managing a group of wedding photographers and filmmakers who are mostly based in New York, California and Florida. From their respective offices on each coast, Lisa and Sarah manage much of the artists’ day-to-day operations freeing them up to do what they love and do best- make beautiful photos and films. While Lisa and Sarah are here to serve the artists’ needs, they also take pride in helping prospective clients navigate the often daunting task of finding the perfect wedding photographer or filmmaker.
Lisa Raffo Ashley is the owner and curator of The Wedding Artists Co. From her sunny Northern California office, she manages the majority of inquiries and projects coming from wedding planners and other industry professionals. She’s a passionate advocate for photographers and filmmakers and has been in artist management in one form or another for almost 15 years.
Sarah Francks is our Senior Agent managing the majority of inquires coming directly from brides and grooms. From her office in Philadelphia, she seamlessly manages our social media and marketing and is also our point of contact for all press inquires. She too has been in artists management for many years and loves nothing more than supporting the creative souls who have entrusted us with their business.
What We Do
We offer artist management for highly creative individuals who are exceptional at their craft but feel they want a support team for their day-to-day operations. We do their marketing, booking and handle the majority of the initial email communication with their clients to help get questions answered quickly and efficiently. This keeps the artists’ schedule free to focus on their creative gifts so their couples are happy and feel well taken care of throughout the entire booking process.
However, not only do we play the role of “artist manager”, we also help to curate a customized experience for our amazing, and often very busy, clients.
Our services go above and beyond a typical wedding vendor. We offer ideal client matching to make sure the couple and the artists are a perfect pairing. So instead of booking couples with artists that might not be a good fit for each other, we help to match those who we know will hit it off. We believe this creates an exceptional client experience and perfect partnership.
We understand planning a wedding is time consuming and it can all feel a bit overwhelming. We feel it’s our job to simplify the process as much as possible to make it a fun and enjoyable part of your wedding planning experience.
