My name is Ashley Vander Heiden, and I’m the owner of AVH Photography. I’m so glad you are here! Thank you for considering me to document one of the most special days of your life.

This is all about capturing the connection between you and the person you love more than anything in the world. You deserve to enjoy every second of your wedding day and love your photos forever. I know those two can go hand in hand, and it’s why wedding photography has been passion of mine for over 5 years. I absolutely love my couples and capturing the spirit of their day in an authentic and natural way.

We are based in Chico Ca, but travel all over California and world wide. I help guide you from planning your day through to album delivery. Let’s tell your love story & create something real.



They listened to what we wanted

“AVH Photography did a fantastic job for our wedding! Ashley and Nate were so fun to work with and made us feel really comfortable in front of the camera. They really listened to what we wanted (more candid shots) and got some great photos that really capture the feeling of the day. They even stayed a bit late to be sure they got the end of our speeches which I really appreciated.”

Captured some truly remarkable moments!

“My husband I had both our engagement and wedding photos shot by AVH. Ashley and Nate were a pleasure to work with. They were so kind and respectful of all of our wishes. The pictures are fantastic! AVH worked the outdoor venue with ease and captured some truly remarkable moments for us. We still look back on the photos and smile. They are "us" and thank you to AVH for capturing moments so special to us.”
