About Ray

doing what i love so i never have to work another day

Looking for affordable wedding photographers in wolverhampton?

Friendly. Professional. Experienced.

Being one of the greatest moments in your life, securing a professional wedding photographer should be a top priority.

You want to be able to look back at your wedding photos and feel the same emotions as you did on that day, see guests enjoying themselves and all the carefully selected details that you obsessed over for months leading up to your wedding. By choosing a full time professional wedding photographer, who is fully insured, has a range of backup equipment and captured a huge variety of weddings all with different scenarios and weather conditions, you are sure to be in safe hands.

Choosing Ray Ashmore Photography to capture your wedding will give you peace of mind that your magical day will be captured in stunning photographs and lasting memories. You will have a friendly professional by your side capturing every moment and detail that you’ll want to share with everyone. I have photographed weddings from Wolverhampton to Italy, on a train and in the rain and created lasting friendships with some of my clients and have a collection of fantastic reviews worth boasting about.

Being a Wolverhampton wedding photographer that covers Shropshire, Staffordshire and the Midlands provides opportunities to visit amazing venues such as Iscoyd Park, Pendrell Hall, The Mill Barns, Chillington Hall and Blakelands Country house to name a few. With all modes of transport being a short distance away from my home in Wolverhampton, I can be anywhere in the UK or abroad at a moments notice and have been lucky enough to capture weddings in Italy and South Africa over the years.  

My style is a mixture of documentary candid shots of you and your guests enjoying the day, coupled with a handful of family formals and some fun, relaxed but naturally posed photos of you and your bridal party. I aim to blend with your guests and always hear compliments from them on the day, although I do like to joke with one or two that its my first wedding. I am very big on seeing images printed and like to include a story telling album in all of my packages. Technology changes so fast yet an printed album or framed print will never go out of date, unlike a CD or USB. I love being with you all day, seeing the emotions unfold and being able to capture as many moments as possible. It’s important that you like my style and personality, as the photographer is the one person who spends the entire day with you and not being compatible will not get the best photos on the day. 

Photographer Ray Ashmore posed with his wife Yvette

So this is me with my beautiful wife of 16 years and we have two gorgeous kids who are growing up far too fast. Yvette is from South Africa so we were lucky enough to be married over there and we had a blessing in the UK 10 years later…so effectively we got married twice. I have been in hospitality most of my life and value great service, which is why I put everything I can into making sure you have a great day, with amazing wedding photos and hopefully this shows in the service I provide both leading up to, on your wedding day and afterwards. I like to think of myself as the bridesmaid you didn’t need to buy a dress for! I love M&M’s, go-karting, movies and music that gives you goose bumps. Still very young at heart.

Wow where do I start, We chose Ray to capture our special day and indeed he did. From the moment I first spoke to Ray it felt like I had known him all my life, he was so friendly and warm (his jokes are pretty funny to lol) Ray was more then just a photographer he sorted everything and made sure our day was perfect. We could not of wished for a better photographer to capture our special day, he put us so at ease and the photos felt and look so natural. All our guests have commented how amazing he is. The photos are absolutely beautiful . Ray is beyond amazing at what he does, myself and Luke cannot recommend this man enough. You sir are amazing, thank you so much.
