Where to even begin with this couple!
I’ve known Ashley for a very long time and if there is one thing that I will never ever forget about her…it’s her laugh. Ashley has the best laugh and it is SO contagious! Another reason why I love her laugh is because she can probably relate to me when it comes to laughing so loud people tell you to quiet down. Now that’s a good laugh.
When I found out Ashley was engaged, I was so truly happy for her and right away I wondered who this man was that swept her off her feet! And then I met Shan…
Oh Shan, you couldn’t be more perfect for Ashley and I am so very happy that you two found each other! Our session together was SO MUCH fun, rain and all! There is always something special I experience with every couple I photograph, but I will never forget the feeling I had when we were out at Discovery Park. I can still relive that moment and it almost gives me goosebumps…the rain stopped, the clouds parted, and there was such a strong silence. As I photographed Ashley and Shan laying down on the blanket, little black bunnies surrounded us, the birds began to chirp quietly, and in the distance I could see the storm coming.
The quiet before the storm. Truly.
Then we quickly walked out to the edge to look over the water, and we could literally see the rain hitting the ocean as it got closer and closer. Took just enough photos by the water and then the rain seriously let us have it! We were all completely soaked by the time we reached our cars! This all may sound like nothing too special, but there was such a calm and peaceful feeling in my heart, yet I also felt so alive…
I knew in that moment that this is truly what I am suppose to be doing.
Thank you Ashley and Shan for such an amazing experience, I probably will never forget it. I can’t wait for your wedding this year!
I hope everyone enjoys this post because there is just something about it I hold dear to my heart. Be sure to check back soon for Part 2 of their session!
Ashley, you are beautiful!
I just love the way Shan looks at Ashley. So cute.
Oh you know, just havin’ a little fun!
