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 4 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). 



“We really enjoyed Rae of Light Photography capturing our amazing day! Ashley was great to work with and it was nice with another photographer there to make sure all the special moments were captured! We gave her some inspiration photos and she was able to capture them beautifully while also coming up with some ideas on her own! It was such a great day and a wonderful experience”
