Introduction: Hi friends! I am a wedding and portrait photographer servicing the Chicagoland area. Some of my favorite things are bubbly rose and old fashioned's, gin rummy with my hubby, and most importantly good company and laughter. One thing I guarantee at every session is that we will have the best time and laugh A LOT!

I would hire Ashlee Cole photography again in a heartbeat. I have two rambunctious little boys and she was an expert at getting them engaged in the process and having fun. As a working mom I appreciated her substantive preparation in advance of the shoot. She knows her stuff!

There aren’t enough good things to say about Ashley! Where can I even begin? She goes above and beyond to make her clients happy! Every photo is literally perfect! It is always a pleasure to shoot with her. If you have children, you’ve chosen the right photographer because she is the absolutely sweetest, always knowing how to make them smile!

Wedding and Event Photography

Ashley was great! I booked Monroe Street Photography for my Wedding. She was more than on time. The quality of her work was beyond excellent. We were able to make all of our important shots. The value of her work is just outstanding. I will recommend booking Monroe Street Photography for your next event. I loved working with her and will definitely work with her in the future! Thanks Ashley for making my big day memorable and special.

Portrait Photography

Ashley was super sweet. My 3-year-old nephew was a little crabby but Ashley came up with new creative photo ideas (super fun and interactive) that made him more comfortable and enjoy himself. The shoot was really interactive and I enjoyed being able to take more lifestyle photos. I cannot wait to see the photos! Judging by her past work, the photos will be amazing :)

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Friends, no one likes to talk about money, it can be uncomfortable but it doesn't HAVE to be like that. I know planning a wedding is overwhelming especially financially and everyone has a budget. This is not a hobby for me or my part-time gig. This is my full-time job, it pays my bills and helps to put food on the table for my family. At the end of the day, if you like good company and you want to work with me, 10 times out of 10, I want to work with you, too! If you're afraid I might be out of your price range, just reach out to me before you scratch Ashlee Cole Photography off the your list. I am always willing to work something out that is fair to both of us!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Taking the time to get to know my clients before a session or event is extremely important. I have specific questionnaires in place to help me learn more about you in addition to phone consultations and in-person meetings.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 3 years of experience in the wedding and portrait industry. I have shot over 50 weddings in the last 2 years and enjoyed every moment of it. I am a KJ lighting and location and consistency course member. Each year I pick a continuing education course to complete to stay up to date and current with my gear, how to use light to photograph gorgeous memories etc. There is never a point where you are finished learning especially in this industry. I am a self-taught professional photographer.
