“Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people” – Leo Burnett


Ashlee Dean Wells

One of my first memories as a child is pulling my parents camera's off the shelf and wasting film and polaroid cartridges as I experimented with dials and shutters in an attempt to capture moments of incredible importance to a tiny me. I've wanted to be a photographer as long as I can remember and feel lucky that I've been able to actualize my dreams. 

I began shooting seriously in middle and high school and worked as a second shooter to a wedding photographer for a spell as a teenager. I studied photography at Columbia College Chicago before beginning to work professionally and in adulthood my career behind the camera has had several evolutions.  

As a day-dreamer and light chaser with a cerebral side and knack for organization I'm able to see my clients as my muse and execute their visions with my skill and expertise through photographs and storytelling. As a producer, I'm able to translate another creative teams ideas into executable art and content with considerable ease. I like a challenge and believe that beauty and possibility exists in all things. 

I'm currently accepting new photography clients and commissions, freelance production gigs, and have my speaking schedule open through fall of 2017. I'd love to create, engage, and make a bit of magic with you. Shall we?
