Ashley Rae combines professional integrity, skill and energy to every assignment. She has modeled for me dozens of times and I would not hesitate to use her a dozen more. I highly recommend that you avail yourself of the opportunity to work with this talented model.

I have worked with Ashley 2 different times. I did a studio fine art artistic shoot and then a location shoot out to Big Bend Texas. What a great model Ashley is. She is professional in every way. And she is a LADY in every way. I could not get any model that is any better than Ashley for any of my trip shoots. I will be working with Ashley more in the future for sure.

Ashley Rae is probably the finest model I have had the honor of working with over the last 20 years. She is an artist in her own right-- her body is her art. Not only is she graceful and fit, she has a body awareness and aesthetic sensitivity that infuses her images with inspiration and power. Together with her natural beauty and genuine enthusiasm, Ashley Rae is a joy to work with.
Photographers are blessed, when a model appears that has the total package. Ashley Ray is such a blessing. Not only does she have the physical appearance that is a 10 plus, she posses the inner and gentle spirit that really jumps out in an image. Ashley Rae is low maintenance, willing to go the extra mile, and is very dependable. Of all the models I have worked with, Ashley Ray is number one. She will work with or without direction. Her ability to pose allows the photographer to focus on the technical, composition, and mood of an image. Words can not describe her and her ability. It is a real privilege, to work with such a PROFESSIONAL!!!!!!!

Ashley Rae is one of the best models I have had the pleasure working. She is talented beyond words, and the ultimate professional. She has always been very good at picking up my vision, and is always willing to add her own creative touches to the shoot. Highly recommended.
A Thousand Words, Photography
I would like to comment on my recent experience with Ashley Rae on the Crested Butte figure workshop. This was my first shoot with Ashley and it was excellent! I would put her into a scene and she would slowly morph into the scene getting closer and closer where she wanted to be and then she would lock the pose and I would start to shoot only modifying my composition and perspective. She is very aware of her surroundings, and her beautiful tone sexy body is an amazing figure to behold in person. She is very professional and aims to please in each shot. She made my life easy that day as she requires little to no direction for modeling. Ashley has it down! I can only give her my highest recommendation to anyone considering her for paid work because youâre going to get your monies worth for sure!

I have worked with Ashley more times than I can remember. There's a reason for that, she's just damn good! For a photographer there is nothing better than shooting with a model that is not only beautiful on so many different levels, but also shows up to work. She shows up on time, prepared, and knows how to model. I highly recommend Ashley for all different genres of modeling, she does all of them well.
