CREATIVE DIRECTOR, ASHLEY GERRITY
leads the team of Philadelphia Wedding Photographers at Ashley Gerrity Photography.

 

Ashley is an intensely driven, detail-oriented, caffeine-addicted fan of excellent food, and exhilarating romance. She also happens to be a passionate editorial wedding photographer. Her approach to photography is simple–take the time to get to know each and every couple and work with their style to create breathtaking, personal images. She brings together a diverse background in both the visual and performing arts to craft your wedding story through fine art imagery that you will pass on for generations to come.

Ashley finds beauty in every person she photographs. It is an honor to be able to capture some of the most pivotal moments in our clients’ lives. She is a true romantic at her core and you just might find her tearing up behind the lens during your vows or first dance. Ashley loves creating intimate and beautiful portraits in an editorial style, while documenting every last detail of your day.

In addition to running Ashley Gerrity Photography, Ashley has been an industry educator & media personality, featured as a regular contributor to Dream Weddings magazine, taught a weekly business webinar for creatives, and giving back to the wedding industry through speaking engagements, workshops, & podcasts! She was a founding leader of the Philadelphia TuesdaysTogether Chapter, a board member of Philadelphia's Wish Upon a Wedding Chapter, & is an active member of NACE Philadelphia.

When she isn’t helping you enjoy every last moment of your wedding day, she is probably snuggling with her two amazing dogs, commuting back & forth between her home in Maryland and our Malvern studio, or whipping up something extravagant in the kitchen.

STUDIO MANAGER, RACHEL PRAY
has been helping to manage the team of Philadelphia Wedding Photographers at Ashley Gerrity Photography for six years.

Studio manager and primary photographer, Rachel Pray, has been an integral part of our team of Philadelphia wedding photographers since our second wedding back in 2012.

Rachel’s love of photography began when she received a small Konica 35mm film camera for her thirteenth birthday. A camera hasn’t left her hand since. After finishing school, Rachel interned with renowned New York photographer, David Sacks, honing her skills as a highly talented wedding photojournalist before joining forces with Ashley to grow Ashley Gerrity Photography.

Rachel loves photography, loves people, and genuinely adores giving a piece of her heart to every couple she photographs. Rachel won’t just document your wedding–she will celebrate with you in the joy of your day and the promise of your love.

When she isn’t hanging out with you and your bridal party, Rachel is enjoying lazy Sundays watching football, sampling whiskey, and snowboarding. All of your groomsmen will agree–Rachel is definitely the coolest wedding photographer they have ever met.

PHOTOGRAPHER, ANN BLAKE
brings a classical portrait perspective to the wedding day.

Since 2015, Ann has been an amazing addition to our team of Philadelphia wedding photographers. However, she brings with her nearly a decade of professional wedding photography experience from the years before she joined AGP.

Not only a talented photographer, Ann is a nurse who spends a great deal of time caring for others. The fondest memories of her childhood were spending endless hours perusing the pages and reminiscing with family over prints and albums. Watching her sons embrace their family’s photographic history motivates her every day to capture everyday moments.

Because of this, human connection is at the forefront of her mind every time she picks up a camera. Her goal with every photograph, is to create beautiful and relaxed images that capture who you are today. She believes in community building, love, and serving the world through her photography skills.

When she doesn’t have a camera in hand, you’ll find her cuddled up with her family, enjoying movies! If she needs a pickup, she grabs a Starbucks mocha with two pumps of toffee nut!

Director of Cinema, KIERSTEN SHANK
helps your wedding day come to life on screen.

 

Since 2017 when Kiersten joined forces with Ashley to create a video program that seamlessly couples with the Ashley Gerrity photography process, she has been an integral addition to the AGP family.

Prior to leading the Ashley Gerrity Cinema team, Kiersten spent several years working with other Philadelphia area videography companies before branching out to run her own successful video team. It was behind the camera at her company, Elvira Mary Productions, named after two influential family members, where Kiersten found her calling - she is driven to create heirlooms that will live on to tell the history of a family and their relationships.

She was raised in the company of her Grandmother & Great Aunt who raised her to believe that every love story has a unique beginning that sets the foundation for a lifetime of happiness. She channels the values and love of marriage and family that these women have taught her into each film that she and the Ashley Gerrity Cinema team create.

Kiersten loves becoming a fly on the wall in order to record the most authentic moments of your wedding day. She is most imspired when sharing in the candid memories between you and your loved ones.

When Kiersten isn't behind the camera, you can usually find her planning her next adventure. She is an avid traveler who loves to eat her way through different countries. She also loves to share her adventures - you'll catch her pausing to take a photo of her meals before she devours it!

PHOTOGRAPHER, JENN ZIEGLER
has honed her style & approach over three years on the AGP team.

Ever since Jenn took her first photography class in high school, a fire was ignited inside her. She realized her passion and pursued it academically by attending Antonelli Institute for Photography. Jenn has been a part of the Ashley Gerrity Photography team since her second year of art school and is thrilled to be spending more time behind the camera. After earning her wings as one of our intern/assistants, Jenn has stepped into her role shooting with the team at AGP with ease.

Jenn loves to capture timeless moments between loved ones, family, friends, and even the furry ones! She loves to be behind the camera so that you can truly live in the moments you’ll want to remember forever.

In her free time Jenn enjoys traveling and relaxing in nature. With a house full of dogs to keep her company, she finds calmness within all the excitement of a wedding day.

 

PHOTOGRAPHER, LIAM GORDON
is the newest import to the team of Philadelphia Wedding Photographers.

Liam took a long and winding road to discovering his passion for photography.

His first real camera was inherited from his grandfather in 2011. The half-used roll of film inside held photos of him playing in the garden from 1991. After experiencing the magic of photography first hand, he’s devoted his art to capturing weddings and other milestones of life. Liam spends his summers working with youth as a camp photographer. He loves that a camera gives him the ability to freeze the fleeting moments & joy of life in the outdoors.

After spending the majority of his life in southwest Scotland, he has hopped the pond to live in Philadelphia with his new wife. The American contingent at Ashley Gerrity Photography is happy to announce that he has converted from tea and soccer to coffee and football. He’ll never let go of his Scottish accent, though, and it works wonders at charming wedding parties into listening when he talks.

When Liam doesn’t have a camera in his hand, he’s looking for travel opportunities, road trips, trails to hike and mountains to snowboard on.
