I was a little skeptical when Ashley asked me to photograph her wedding.  I sat across from her at Panera looking into her smiling face and had my doubts.  None of them were about her but about me.  I was 8 months pregnant and already felt like I was going to pop.  Her wedding was roughly a month after my due date.  What if it was too soon?  My concern was not for my own well being but what if I could not deliver (as I promise all my clients) my absolute best?  As I looked at Ashley's expectant smile, I knew that I couldn't say no.  Ashley's sweet and understanding personality made it easy to take a chance.  We decided to wing it and I'm so glad we did.


Ashley and T.J. got married on a rainy Saturday in March.  They say that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck.  This couple doesn't need the luck. They are amazing together and you can instantly feel not only their love but the love of everyone who attended the ceremony.  There was no doubt that not only did every guest want to be there but they were full of excitement and energy.  This wedding was so full of joy, love, and fun!  The wedding party was amazing and the bride and groom were incredibly laid back.  The wedding was at Sampson's Hollow and the low hanging clouds created a dramatic backdrop against the mountains.  The rain held off just long enough to say I do, and then we headed to the porch for shelter and some family photos.  After the family portraits, Ashley and T.J. said they were game to head out into the rain for some couples time.  I adore clients that are up for adventure and trust me.  I love the way these turned out!  Ashley was absolutely stunning in her dress and her love for T.J. raidiated off of her.  T.J. couldn't take his eyes off of her.

Congratulations Ashley and T.J!  Thank you so much for taking a chance on me.  I know you will carry the love from that day with you each and everyday.
