"This is fine work... you make people happy and that is the best and highest calling."-Jen

"Ashley's work, professionalism, and creativity is second to none! She has a way of making you feel like you are meant to be in front of the camera; it's just so comfortable. My fiancé was dreading having to do an engagement shoot because he doesn't like to feel like he is being posed in front of the camera. Ashley made it so easy and fun, we didn't feel like we were being photographed at all and we both had a blast and absolutely loved the pictures!! Her attention to detail and ability to see the beautiful potential in something so simple, is amazing!  She has photographed every major event in my life-engagement, wedding, maternity, and 3 newborns. Her passion and talent are incredible. She always manages to capture the most perfect smiles for my kids, something I've never been able to do. She is outgoing, energetic, and engaging. Her editing is beautiful yet simple and her turnaround time is really fast. I can't imagine working with anyone else and wholeheartedly recommend her for all of your photography needs!"-Ashley

"If you're anywhere in New England, Through the Pines is a MUST HIRE. Ashley has captured family photos, my engagement, my wedding, and even my wife's boudoir photos. I drive 3 hours just for her work. If it's your first time meeting her you're met with a bubbly personality that quickly makes you laughing and comfortable for your session. Another huge thing is the end results, the photos are stunning and are edited perfectly! Through the Pines is a 10/10"


"Had an absolutely fabulous day with Ashley!! She was very professional and great with our kids. She was extremely flexible from the start and very accommodating. We will absolutely be going back to see Ashley and highly recommend her. Very stress free and fun environment and the end results really speak for themselves! Thank you so much Ashley!!"-Heather

"I cannot say enough good things about Through The Pines Photography! Ashley was AMAZING to work with and exceeded our expectations!! We are from out of town and had a small elopement ceremony in the midst of the pandemic. Ashley went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable on our big day and made sure we got pictures of all of the details that were important to us. We couldn’t be happier with the GORGEOUS pictures and unforgettable experience we had with Ashley."-Sandra

"ASHLEY IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, creative...not to mention she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Our photos turned out better than we could have ever hoped! Ashley captured every single moment and detail of our big day perfectly. We had SO MANY great shots from our wedding - I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love- and there were over 1,000! I can't say enough great things about this photographer. Besides having the sweetest disposition, she’s flexible and has an amazing eye for detail and framing. Ashley also took our engagement photos - complimentary as part of our package- and she spent an additional 1/2 hour with us capturing our love. She will be the first person I call for maternity or family photos too! You will not be disappointed with Ashley & Through the Pines Photography. Worth every single penny!" -Megan

"Wow, where to begin? My wife and I were blessed to have Ashley and her partner with us for our wedding day! They not only perfectly captured every moment of our ceremony and reception with practiced and professional eyes, but were a calm and steady hand that helped guide us and keep us on track through the days events. Flexible, kind, caring, excited, wonderful people who clearly enjoy what they do and do it SO WELL! We could never have imagined being happier with our choice in photographers! Every laugh you never want to forget, every tear you never knew you wanted recorded, every dance move that should forever be remembered! They captured it all. And beautifully. I cannot say enough or give a higher recommendation. Choose them! Thank you so much Ashley!! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you."-Rob

Working together

I was born and raised in the lakes region of NH. My passion is to photograph images that withstand the test of time. Capturing moments during epic milestones, that last a lifetime is an honor. I live and love them myself, being a wife and mother has taught me so much about the true importance of life and happiness. Capturing those breathtaking moments for my clients, brings me such joy. Whether it’s a wedding, elopement, engagement, proposal, maternity, newborn, or family session. Do I pose? A little, sure. It’s more about the moment for me. Asking the groom to hold his bride and whisper all the reasons he married her in her ear, while I snap away. Then it truly becomes a memorable moment. When you look at that photo, you will remember all the sweet nothings he said. Creating and capturing memories in the most gorgeous locations across New England, is the promise Through The Pines Photography has guaranteed for years. Are you up for an adventure?

  • You are investing in my work of art. I work hard to ensure you are always pleased with the results of your images. My editing includes black and white, color, facial blemishes, hair, and anything else that would distract you from the final product. I do not wash out colors, I keep them vivid and bold. Additional editing services are available, 50$/hour.

  • The amount of photos you receive are the ones I feel are the best, typically about half of the amount I take. If two are very similar, typically one will be in black and white.

  • My turn around time for a photography session is a month to two months, weddings are three to four months during peak season (June-October). I am just as excited to get them back to you as you are to see them! This time frame could be shortened season depending. 

  • Payment of any photo session is due upon the date of the session and any products upon placing the order (example: album). A non-refundable deposit of 100$ is due to reserve your session date.

  • I currently accept checks ( made payable to "Ashley Rand"), PayPal, Venmo, Apple cash, or cash. The balance of any photo session package is due upon the end of photographing the session. The chosen package is non refundable once the session is photographed. Rebooking is an option (for sessions only) if weather is not acceptable beyond our control. Resolution upgrades available within a year of the session.

  • Travel fee over one hour of driving 40$/hour added to all packages.

  • a model release is required for every session, upon booking a session.

  • A wedding contract is signed upon a package agreement. The wedding deposit is due at the time of signing a contract (half of the agreed total of the package) to reserve your date. The remainder is due when the images are ready. The payment must be paid in full within 30 days of the photos being ready, or a fee of 20%/month interest will be added to the total.

  • booking a session means you give consent to a model release (I need a signed note from a parent if you are under 18 years of age). I would never sell your images. I would never share your images without your (or parental if applicable) consent.

  • The album company I use is fantastic and everyone loves the result. The pages are lay flat and stain resistant. I do not recommend swimming with it, but they are still nice none the less. 

  • I photograph with a Canon 5D Mark IV and use multiple lenses. I have professional props (newborn), backdrops and lighting in my studio or on location. 

  • I ask that if you have any in-depth questions after the shoot to please schedule a phone chat with me to go over them so that I have time to be ready for my next session.

  • Why an engagement session? Not everyone is incredibly comfortable in front of the camera. This gives you the chance to get a feel for how I work, how I pose, and how it all works. That way, for your special day you are comfortable and confident! 

  • See my style guide for what to wear!

  • Images are kept for one year from the date of the session. After this time period the Clients are responsible for their images. Through The Pines Photography is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged photos in any medium. Please back up your files. 

  • Low-resolution images are for Internet use without copyright release. High-resolution images are large files for any printing and editing, copyright release included. Purchase options for albums, prints etc available with online gallery.

  • All online galleries include printing options. Online galleries are available for  180 days, please download and back up your files!

  • You can only find five star reviews on Facebook, Google, The Knot, and Yelp. I always strive for optimal experiences for my clients, but they always become friends! 

  • You can also find my work in Lakes to Mountains Weddings, Lakes Region bride Magazine (including the 2024 cover).

  • I also attend wedding shows at Church Landing in Meredith, The Margate in Gilford, Hobbs Brewery Restaurant in Ossipee, The Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, Purity Springs in Madison, Rosewood Landing in Madison, and Tamworth Distilling, throughout the year.
