Find me a more creative, fun, talented, ridiculously cool, stellar human, above-and-beyond, kickass photographer.... oh wait, there isn't one. Asha takes everything to the next level. From the moment I met her at a coffee shop in San Diego to see if we vibed well together, I knew this is our gal. I was instantly comfortable. My husband Alex is not a photo guy—hates them, even though I think he's so photogenic, he just doesn't like the attention. At our engagement shoot, Alex was super apprehensive and not stoked—that went away in about 5 minutes after meeting Asha. She exudes confidence, makes you feel comfortable in a second, and made our first shoot with her SO easy. After the shoot Alex was like—"wow, that was so comfortable... and dare I say it, fun?" What I will never get over though, is what she delivered for us on the big day. Throughout the day it was like we were hanging out with an old friend—that's what Asha is now, a friend that we love and laugh with. She was just part of the fam. Keep in mind, I am an absolute psycho about photos—my jaw legit dropped to the ground with my husband when we were looking at the wedding photo delivery from Asha. They are everything we wanted and more. Asha- I am SO fucking happy we found you, I feel so lucky because you're on the cusp of becoming a world famous photographer with millions of followers. I'm happy to be part of that journey and would say to anyone looking... this is it. Asha is your gal... now book her already!!!!

chelsea & luke

I have sat here staring at my computer screen for about 20 minutes now trying to find the right words to express how amazing you are, and the truth is that there are not enough blank pages on the whole internet to express my love for you!!!! I know every single couple you shoot will say they have the best wedding photos in the world, and to be honest, each one of your couples do. You somehow make every single photo so magical that it is actually is impossible to find a favorite. I of course can go on and on about the photos specifically, but the true magic is the person behind the lens. You made us both so comfortable and so confident in front of the camera and made us feel so special every time we saw you. Thank you so much for flying to Mexico to share the most important day of our lives with us. You will forever be a part of our family, memories, and life. We love you so much Asha. And yes, I do have the best wedding photos of all freaking time.

madeline & roman

After going through this whole experience with Asha I am absolutely blown away!! I had no idea what to expect from a wedding photographer (other than taking photos—obviously) but Asha was there for me in an entirely different way. She went through the rollercoaster of wedding planning with us, was there with us every time covid got in the way of our dream day, and shared her opinions and advice when we needed it. I had so much confidence in her when our day finally came that photos weren’t a worry for me, I knew they were going to be amazing. I am so grateful for this experience and the memories she captured of our most perfect day. 

erin & justin

Ahhhh Asha was our dream photographer! Not only can you expect the most stunning photos, but you receive a whole experience. We never had to stress for a moment with Asha. She guided us with ease and made us enjoy each shoot we did with her! One of the biggest gifts Asha gave us was never feeling awkward in front of the camera. She guided us and told us what to do, to create the most magical images!!! 

kristell & steven

Where do we begin??? We couldn’t have imagined our wedding without Asha. It was one of the most magical and and meaningful days of our lives and she captured it all better than we could have ever dreamed of. The comfort and happiness in knowing we had Asha, knowing our memories were going to be beautifully saved forever meant the world...they are just sooo much more than just photos when she captures them. They are moments in time where you can feel the passion, the love, the happiness and warmth of that day and everyone in the photo. It’s more than just her talent, but the friendship you create with her. The freeness you feel when your photos are taken because you vibe so well, feel so comfortable and trust whatever she’s telling you. Asha was the best thing to happen to us. We will cherish those photos forever. You truly can’t put a price on them. They are the most special photos we have and we can’t wait to show them to our future kids. They are timeless. Literally feels impossible to imagine them being any more perfect. If you are going to do anythinggg for any important event in life that you want captured, get Asha. No doubt, you will be over the moon. Prepare to be just as obsessed with her as a person as you are with her photos. Asha, we love you!!! So much. Forever. 

stephany & jose

Asha is truly a gem. She’s an incredible photographer and beautiful person inside and out. I’ve followed Asha for years on Instagram and knew I wanted her to capture our big day. She captures raw and genuine love, the kind you feel and see at the same time. She captures transcendent love. Not only do you get an amazing photographer with Asha but you gain a friend. She’s chill, fun, and always there for you to lend a helping hand—like helping me bustle my wedding dress. Thank you Asha for being there for Jose and I and capturing all the love we feel for each other. 

irene & leo

Where do we start?!? If you’re looking for someone who captures every inch of your love, Asha is your girl! My husband and I fell in love with the warmth and rawness in her photography. Vibe is extremely important to my husband and I, and upon meeting Asha we knew we would get along great. She has a way of making you feel as if you have known each other for years. Needless to say our engagement shoot was a breeze. We often say that we are not photogenic at all yet Asha was able to capture so many great candid moments that illustrated our love. When the pandemic hit we were devastated because so many things needed to be moved around, but because of our FUN FREAKIN TASTIC experience and how great our pictures turned out, we knew we could NOT go with any other photographer! So like any logical couple would do (lol), we moved our wedding date to accommodate Asha’s availability. Yes, because she’s that FREAKIN’ good. Our pictures turned out AMAZING. We loved every single one of our pictures and now will be that weird couple that will have them hanging all over our house. It was an absolutely pleasure working with such an incredible, talented soul! Asha is seriously the best in the business. 10/10 hands down! 

tiffany & julio

I really don’t know how to put into words my love and admiration for Asha and her talent, but here it goes! For quite a few years now I have followed her on instagram and literally dreamed of the day I would get engaged to be able to reach out to her to shoot my wedding. You better believe that the second my husband asked me to marry him, I did. I literally think she’s the most amazing in the world, and when I did I knew by her words that we were meant to be. Asha is the most loving, caring and detailed—her dedication to her craft shows in her admirable and breathtaking work. She makes you feel comfortable and confident while she shoots. The way she upkeeps the upmost professionalism while also making you feel like family is everything I wanted in a photographer for our special day. I will hold her and her work to close to my heart and to the highest regard forever and always! Everyone I run into has to ask me who she is, and how I found her because her work is THAT good. If you don’t book Asha for your special day, you don’t know what you're missing. To making many more memories during my life milestones with you Asha! We love you!

michelle & jimmy

Seriously you guys, stop looking.....you’ve found the best of the best. 
When I randomly stumbled across Asha’s Instagram on my explore page, it took all but two seconds to know that she was the person I would have shooting my wedding (I don’t even think I was engaged yet). It was super important to me that I found a photographer who made me feel something through their work..and finding Asha felt like the universe was truly giving me a gift! The truth is, is that you can hire a photographer at any price point anywhere...but when you book with Asha you aren’t just getting a photographer, you are getting a piece of her. A camera can take nice photos but the work that she produces shows how much she has made an effort to get to know her couples and it shows when each of her shoots are a little bit different and special in their own way.  If you are looking for someone who captures the true feelings of a moment, the in between stuff that no one usually sees, and finds all your good angles and makes you feel like a freaking model...that’s Asha. But she’s not only an AMAZING photographer, she’s a badass business woman (seriously don’t know anyone who works as hard as she does), she has the best (funny & sarcastic as f) personality, and the biggest take away for us is that she has the kindest heart and pours her soul into every ounce of her work.When I first reached out, I told Asha that her photos make me feel like 90’s r&b, and I stand by that! Just the best lovesick vibes that will transcend memory and time & always bring you back to how you felt in the moment. 

When you hire Asha, you're getting so much more than just an absurdly talented photographer —
Not only is she just a whole damn artist, but her spirit is one of the kindest, funniest, chillest, most genuine people you've ever met. She not only delivered the photos of my dreams, but our shoot with her was really fun and truly an enjoyable time between my husband and I, all thanks to her direction and vibe. I can't wait to work with her more and feel so lucky to have had our love documented by such a gem of a human. 200000/10.

melissa & justin

5 Stars! 10/10! Would recommend! Having a session with Asha is the most comfortable, fun, hilarious, and intimate experience you could ask for. 
I cannot say enough AMAZING things about working with Asha. Planning a huge wedding during Covid was a nightmare. We had originally planned on having a big wedding in Virginia— but around May I came to the realization that this was no longer feasible. Asha was so incredible and supportive in helping me make the final decision to cancel the big wedding and instead have my dream wedding in Sedona. She helped me with choosing all of the decor from the altar, to the rug, the flowers, and had time to answer literally every single question I had. She helped me accessorize my whole look (which was a dream by the way). 
The day before the wedding Asha was scouting locations before I even arrived in Sedona. By the time I arrived she found a place that would look magical and also had parking for my family. The day of the wedding she was out at the location making sure everything looked perfect (and it did) for when I finally got to walk “down the aisle."

Where to even begin?
Asha's photography drew us in but her work ethic, passion, and willingness to go above and beyond made us so lucky to call her our photographer. Asha is one of a kind—as a covid bride, she was there to support us in all the last minute changes, even if it meant taking random 'holy shit' calls and texts from us for months. She was always there to support us and we will forever be grateful. Hands down the best decision we made throughout the wedding process.
When you book Asha, you get more than an amazing and creative artist, you gain a friend! We love you Asha!!

stevi & evan

When we got engaged we only knew one thing—we wanted to go somewhere other than Nebraska and we wanted badass photos. We hopped on Insta and searched wedding hashtags all over. Oregon, Washington, New York... We messaged a few photographers in those areas but as soon as we saw Asha’s Instagram we knew needed her to shoot our wedding. Her photos are captivating and exactly what we had visioned for our wedding photos. When she got back to us we knew she was the perfect fit. She was fun, witty, and unique—different from anyone who had messaged us back. 
Our experience with Asha was beyond what we ever expected from a photographer. Not only is she a freakin’ badass and so talented—we now have a life long friend. From start to finish, she had quick, personalized communication. She is knowledgeable in the wedding industry and was quick to assist with any questions we had surrounding our wedding, even if our questions were outside of photography.  Our wedding photos are the most beautiful. They bring tears to me eyes and they’re so so special. I’m so thankful we had Asha by our side through this whole process, I couldn’t imagine it any other way. 

ashley & matt

Asha captured the most important night of our lives in the most breathtaking way! 
After the year that we’ve had while planning out wedding—2 reschedulings and a last minute elopement—she made our COVID-19 experience a little bit better with her magic. Asha is the woman you want by your side when you feel overwhelmed because she’s so great with words and making sure you’re feeling confident on your special day. 
As soon as we got to our bridal photo location, she made us feel so comfortable and had my husband and I pose and move in such an organic way, I knew our photos were going to be magical. Throughout the rest of the night, Asha captured the joy we had with our family and closest friends, and even caught the moment when our entire bridal party jumped in the pool at the end of the night! 
At the end of the day, Asha is worth every penny and more—you will love her and her work, and want to make sure that she captures every life moment you have from here on out just like we will!

ashlee & kevin


Asha deserves everything the world has to offer, because without a doubt, that is what she gave us. Asha gave us more than pictures, more than laughs—she gave us every emotion we felt, delicately and jam packed into photos. Nothing staged, nothing posed—authentic moments curated specifically with our personalities. How she does it? No idea, but she does it, flawlessly. Working with her is easily one of the most authentic experiences of our life. Whenever we are with Asha and her camera, her energy and charisma creates a bubble around us—and let me tell you, her bubble gives you all the confidence you could ever need. If you need a sign to work with her, this is it. Because with Asha you get her entire self. her confidence-sharing, laugh-out-loud personality tied with her willingness to drop everything because your zipper on your wedding dress breaks before your ceremony. If you need a photographer and want a friend, you've found her.

abby & tyler

I’m here to tell anyone who is considering asking Asha to help capture a special moment in their lives to look no further and DO IT! I knew I wanted the photos for my wedding to be beautiful. Not only that—I wanted my husband to have fun and not feel uncomfortable. Asha has a great energy. She is excited to be in the moment with you and makes it such a blast! There are so many photographers who are there to make money, but you can tell she loves her job and loves LOVE! I remember after our engagement shoot Tyler turned to me and said “wow what a good time." Not something I ever expected him to say after a photoshoot.
She helps you with every aspect of the shoot—clothes, poses, she thinks of it all. For the day of my wedding she was there by my side, helping me every step of the way. We got married in the middle of covid, and there were so many times I had to change things up on her and she was so understanding and honestly just the best to work with. I would choose her 100x over again. Every time I look at these pictures I’m right back to the best day of my life. All of my emotions come back and I get the butterflies all over again. I have her to thank for that. 

elisa & wladimir

Asha, Asha, Asha. It all began on a typical Friday night, scrolling through my Insta feed, where I saw my friend post some freaking adorable and sexy photos of her and her man in long beach. I saw the tag @ashabaileyphotography, I clicked, and I fell in love. I knew after stalking her Instagram–—just how I had stalked my now husband's (our modern-day love story)—that I needed her to take our engagement photos and wedding photos.
Her eye is IMPECCABLE. Her personality is so down-to-earth. She has this incredible way of making you feel so comfortable, even when you're in 60 degree water, splashing around in a dress, inches away from flashing a beach full of people. Trust me when I say that we are not models (I know—hard to believe), but she really made us feel that way. She made my wedding a breeze. She was always down to hold my dress, or fix my hair, or hide my bra. I didn't have a bridal party, so she was my stand-in bridesmaid, for sure. She even easily handled my Latino family and got them in order—an almost impossible task.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Asha! There will never be enough words to express my gratitude for you. I love you!

nicole & marty

Where do I even start?!
I knew Asha was the one from the moment we first met for coffee to discuss wedding details. Not only does her work speak for itself, but she is also outgoing, listens to your needs, is very professional and is truly just someone you can trust! From random phone calls, to texting about wedding ideas, to making me feel comfortable & cared for throughout my entire wedding journey, I thank her! Even going out of her way to bring me jewelry options because I freaked out the morning of my wedding & told her I forgot my jewelry...she literally goes hard for all her clients and I love that about her. To top it all off, my wedding photos are a dream! Just looking through each photo brings back the emotions I felt that that day, I literally cried. Thank you Asha for capturing such stunning photos on the best day of my. Love you!

juliette & james

Asha was an absolute dream to work with.
Our experience with her was unforgettable. From our first FaceTime meeting we knew Asha was it. She offered endless support throughout the process and on the day itself, James and I both felt like we were in safe hands. It was like having our best friend there by our side. The professionalism that she demonstrated allowed us to relax and enjoy our special day. We got our photos right on time for our second wedding reception, which allowed us the opportunity to share the experience with friends and family back east. We were simply ecstatic with the results. We would like to sum up how we feel about working with Asha by simply saying—she is remarkable at what she does, is a beautiful person to collaborate with, and she genuinely loves what she does, which has an enormous impact on the quality of her work and how she makes her clients feel. Book Asha!!! You won't be disappointed—she will capture memories you and yours will cherish forever!

ally & nick

Let me start by saying... we did that! 
You were a part of the most beautiful and special day in our lives. This wasn’t your traditional wedding to ask a photographer to shoot at. We asked that you come to Italy with us and capture us getting married in front of one of tHe most popular monuments in the world. And we pulled that off. 
Not only were our photos beyond incredible... Asha as a person is amazing and became family within the days we were with her. Asha made everything flow so perfectly and made us so comfortable. She gave perfect direction, she made us laugh, she was down for whatever and if you asked her to jump she said how high. This girl gave us beautifully edited photos on the same day as our wedding! and the rest of the album was given to us so quickly. 
We truly couldn’t be more grateful that we chose Asha as our photographer. She will be our go to for life! Xo

morgan & leon

Asha, you truly found your calling—you are absolutely amazing at what you do and I am so thankful we were able to lock you down for our engagement & wedding photos.
The photos you take look like they came straight from a wedding magazine—the couples all look so comfortable and romantic—I was nervous we wouldn't be able to pose like that for you to capture those moments for us...well you did it again—you picked up on our personalities in seconds and were able to put some poses together to capture the dreamy photos I had been wanting.
Thank you for your hard work, great communication, and ability to just plug yourself into our big day without direction and capturing everything and more.

karris & raphael

When my wife and I got engaged and began looking for a photographer, we realized that we were looking for more than a service, we were looking for a very specific person; that person was Asha Bailey. Having worked in the wedding industry myself, I’ve seen a lot of dispassionate craft-persons that seem to not care about the couple that hired them. Asha was the opposite. We met with her prior to the wedding for our engagement photos and felt truly at home with her: she cared holistically about us as a couple. She made our wedding day roll smoothly, as she was organized, well-prepared, and confident. She was in her element, and she was there for us the whole way. When she came through for our wedding, she was there as more than a hired gun, but as a friend. If you’re looking for a professional wedding photographer, I highly recommend Asha Bailey!

alyssa & luke

From the moment I saw Asha’s portfolio, I knew she was going to be the perfect photographer for us. I loved her tones, her style of editing, and how she captured real moments so beautifully. Choosing a photographer was SO hard [especially when planning a destination wedding] but my first phone call with Asha only confirmed that she was our girl. She was super quick to respond to everything, always available to chat, super down to earth and made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. She captured absolute magic on our wedding day [even though my husband and I felt like we didn’t know what we were doing] and the shots from our post wedding shoot are beyond what I could have hoped for. We LOVE our photos and will cherish them forever. Thank you Asha you are amazing ♡

candace & andrew

Asha Bailey, first of her name, capturer of love and magic, badass queen. 
Words cant express my gratitude and complete adoration of Asha. From my first encounter with her she stood out from other professional wedding photographers by making it a point to get to know me and my husband. We had already seen her work on Instagram and COULDN'T wait to touch base. After our first call we knew she was the one. 
Asha captured both our engagement and wedding photos. We had big plans. Both my husband and I had never taken professional photos like this and were a little nervous. Asha made us comfortable, guided us, and kept us laughing the entire time! The end result - amaaaaaazing photos. 
Planning for a wedding and deciding on vendors to work with can be really overwhelming. Deciding to work with Asha was the easiest and best decision we had made. We found a friend and photographer for life!

erica & jeremy

I found Asha’s Instagram, fell in love with her aesthetic, & knew she would be a great fit for our wedding. Our experience with Asha as our wedding photographer met our expectations & more. As crazy busy as she is, she was responsive & prompt with getting things done. The fact that my husband & I vibed with her so well was everything. Shooting with her was so much fun & more so an experience that we will cherish forever. I feel that every couple feels pressured to get those “perfect shots” which makes you act or wanna pose a certain way, but Asha literally says “Naw, do you” and gets so many good shots. Asha’s pictures and the moments she’s able to capture continues to amaze me. She not only was our wedding photographer, but became our friend. She’s super personable, friendly, & just real. So glad Asha was a part of our whole wedding experience. EVERYONE IN THE ROOM APPRECIATED HER PRESENCE. She was the one—I couldn’t have ask for anyone better. love u so much asha!

shareen & tyler

First of all, Asha is a Harry Potter fan. That's why you'll love her. The end.
No but seriously, from the moment my (now) husband Tyler and I started working with Asha, she made us feel so comfortable and taken care of which is hard to do via email, but she did it. Her talent spoke for itself but her personality is what sold us. She was the first photographer I looked at and I kept going back to her even when I was speaking to other vendors, and I'm so happy I did. Booking her was one of the best decisions I made during my wedding year. When we first met in person during our engagement shoot, it felt like we'd known each other all along. That's exactly the type of energy you need with your photographer to get amazing results in photos.

lorraine & aaron

Asha was an absolute delight to work with. From the moment we saw her images online we knew that she was going to be the one for us. FROM THE START, HUNTING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT FIT OUR NEEDS, met our schedule, AND most importantly matched our artistic vision was going to be a DAUNTING TASK. To make matters worse, we were on a very tight window for a schedule. Asha was actually unavailable for our originally planned elopement date, so what did we do? Changed our elopement date to meet Asha's schedule. We honestly couldn't be happier that we did. Our ceremony was extremely small and intimate. As a matter of fact, Asha was actually our only guest. She was prompt, professional, non-intrusive, and down to earth. She sure knows how to make two non-photogenic people look like naturals in her craft. Kudos to her for that. *high five* The whole set itself came out better than either of our wildest dreams. Any time time we show friends or family images from our elopement, its a guarantee we get compliments on her work. Being able to capture our special day with Asha's art is TRULY priceless to us. TYSM Asha!

amairani & daniel

One of the most important things for a wedding is picking a photographer, so you have to make sure you pick the best of the best, & Asha Bailey was just more than that; she’s amazing, she is light. After being so amazed when we came across her feed, we knew she was the one, & that was confirmed once we had our engagement shoot.
This whole process can be very stressing & overwhelming, there’s so many photographers out there but we wanted to pick someone who can capture raw genuine emotions, not too “posed” but capture the truth, the real good stuff, our real love, because that’s what is all about. Working with Asha was better than we imagined, we could feel the instant click! She’s so fun to work with, she’s adventure! Full of energy! Makes you feel confident & so comfortable like you’ve known her all along.
She captured the little things and the BIG feelings, nothing forced, nothing set up, just what we feel on the inside, and for that we’re so thankful. We had the best night of our lives and it was all beautifully documented. We could not have asked for a better outcome! 

jessi & gabriel

Asha, what a dream. When my husband and I were searching for a wedding photographer, Asha was a clear choice for us from the beginning. We were immediately blown away by her stunning feed that had a perfect mix of expansive landscape shots in the most beautiful locations, and extremely intimate, closeups that exuded warmth, depth, and love. When we finally connected with Asha, I immediately appreciated her excitement and enthusiasm for what would be the biggest day of our lives. I could tell she wanted to get the photos just right... she began doing tons of research, sending me reference photos and location ideas so we would be prepared on the day of the shoot. Working with her in the flesh was even better than I could’ve imagined. Not only is she incredibly professional and seasoned beyond her years, but I really appreciated her attention to detail and the way she captured my husband and I so naturally within our environment. Her direction made us feel relaxed and confident, and the romance just naturally poured out of us! For the first time, I was seeing our love on camera the way it feels inside. We love and appreciate you more than you know!
