Lisa Raffo Ashley- Manager and Founder of the Collective
Founded and managed by Lisa Ashley, The Wedding Artists Collective is a group of wedding photographers and filmmakers based in California, New York and Florida.
The Collective was first established when Lisa was living in New York and working as an agent for commercial photographers. After discovering blogs such as 100 Layer Cake and Once Wed she immediately fell in love with the new wave of modern and well-crafted weddings they showed. From there it sparked an idea- to offer support for wedding photographers. Now from her Venice, CA office she helps promote the work, manages calendars, initial inquires, contracts and billing freeing up the artists to do what they love and do best- make beautiful photos and films. It’s become a perfect collaboration mixing business, friendship and photography.
