ashley-ludaescherI am a lifestyle, wedding & travel photographer from California’s beautiful central coast living in Berlin, Germany.  This blog started as a way to share life abroad with family and friends and now I share snippets of our life in Berlin along with my work and some of the things that make my heart beat. ♥

Photography has been a lifelong passion of mine, a hobby I fell in love with as a young girl during my family’s many travels. Growing up, I constantly stole my father’s Canon and have always had a great love affair with film.  In 2005, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Commercial Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA.  I have been traveling and working ever since, living in San Francisco, Paris and now Berlin, and feel endlessly blessed to call this my job. I am honored to have had my work published in publications such as: New York Times T Magazine, USA Today, Conde Nast Traveller, PDN, Vogue.de, Matchbook Magazine, Cereal Mag, & sisterMAG.  Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to check out my photography and blog.
