Gary Ashley

Gary grew up in San Diego, spent most of his adult life in NYC, then after a short detour in Venice, CA he now lives in Northern California with his wife Lisa and their (super cute) son, Ronan.

The simple goal when Gary is shooting a wedding is to capture the full story of a couple’s day. Each wedding is unique with it’s own story and he enjoys nothing more than seeing each wedding day unfold.

By using a documentary approach his intention is to capture not only the big moments and details from the day but also the little personal interactions that happen between friends and loved ones. He works to give each couple a creative and relaxed atmosphere to shine and, once that happens, he finds the photos almost take themselves. His work has been featured in C Weddings, Refinery29, 100LayerCake, GWS and more.
