Hi, I am Ashley Regan!

Welcome to Rae of Light Photography! Named that way because my middle name is Rae. Please allow me this time to tell you about myself. I grew up in a very small town called Colesburg, Iowa. I moved to Dubuque in 2005 for college. In 2008 I stepped way out of my comfort zone and moved to Hollywood, California. However, I only lasted there for a short time. It just wasn't for me. I do still have some really great friends out there though!

​I shoot on location. I will one day have my own studio, but I do not right now. I currently live in Dubuque again, but this time I live with my own family! My husband and I have quite the full house! A know-it-all 15 year old, a laid-back but sassy 9 year old, and a 3 year old who one day thinks he's a dinosaur and the next a Ninja Turtle. Oh, and not to mention we also have three cats, a Siamese (Owen) and a black cat (Daisy), and a Tabby cat (Astro), and two dogs, a Golden Retriever (Roman) and a beagle (Bayley). 



“There are not enough compliments to give Ashley on her talent and spark of imagination in photography.
After having to postpone our wedding due to Covid19, deciding to just get hitched at the courthouse and have the wedding later, and now finally getting into the swing of things in our new normal; Ashley has gone above and beyond to stay in touch, accommodate schedules, payment plans, and so much more.
We had an amazing time with her at Kinnick taking our announcement photos and they are breathtaking.”
