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 to job. As a general rule, Gary is the photographer and Lisa is the studio manager. For certain projects Lisa assists acting as a stylist and second pair of eyes.

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