We are Gary and Lisa Ashley.  We create photographs and gather friends and inspiration along the way.  We established Create + Gather as a place to showcase our collaborative efforts with artists, influencers and families in our community and beyond. With every project we work on, we hope to make a meaningful connection with those around us.  

We met while living in Brooklyn, NY.  We had our first child while living in Venice, CA.  We now live and create together in Sacramento, CA.  We are also the owners of The Wedding Artists Co., Little Deer Photo and Gary Ashley Photography

How we work together changes from job to job. As a general rule, Gary is the photographer and Lisa is the studio manager, curator, and all around creative "spark".   

We are currently heavily involved in an effort to encourage donations to some organizations that we are excited about contributing to. You can learn more about how you can help us raise money here
