My Bridals… Ashleigh Jayne style!

This year, on October 5th, my husband and I will be celebrating 3 years of marriage. Yay!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ever since we married, I’ve always wanted pictures of myself in my wedding dress. (all brides, I’m sure, will agree that you can never have enough photos of yourself in your wedding dress!! Right brides!?) I wanted photos… “Ashleigh Jayne style”. Yes, if I could, I’d take them myself… BUT since that is pretty much impossible, who better than my sweet husband!!

We went to the beautiful Seaside in Florida to take the photos and I have to say, it was bizarre being on the other side of the camera for once! Even though it was my husband behind the lens, I have to admit I was a tad nervous!! Ok… maybe a little more than a tad! (wink!) ย I can totally relate to my clients when it comes to nerves and being awkward at first for sessions!!

The best part of the day, was seeing people’s confused faces when they saw “the bride” telling “the photographer” what angle to snap and especially when the bride took her shoes off, grabbed the camera from the photographer and started snapping photos of her shoes. Ha!! That kept us laughing all day!! To say all that… my hubby rocks and I’m blessed to have him.

Happy Tuesday!!!

W.O.W. Ashleigh. All I can say is you are one lucky gal and your husband is ONE LUCKY GUY! You are absolutely stunning in these photographs. I am so in love with everything about this session. You couldn’t have pieced it together any more perfectly. From the accessories all the way down to the shots when you were just glancing back at your hubs, I LOVE them. Gotta admit, the ones on the beach might be my favorite of them all. ;o) Great job on the photos you guys. {Ashleigh, don’t you just LOVE being married to another photographer?! lol}

Either your husband is uber talented (like you are), or you offer amazing direction/instruction. OR, a combination of the two? ๐Ÿ™‚ This is one of my favorite sessions. I am hoping and praying that you will get to be my bridal photographer!

Music Goodies

I’m SUCH a huge music buff! I don’t think one second of my editing time has been done without awesome tunes! I’m always on the search for new music on Itunes and I love love love when I find little treasures ๐Ÿ™‚ I was in one of those moods tonight to make myself a new playlist for tomorrow… and I thought I’d share some of the songs I found – so, with that said – ENJOY and GOODNIGHT!

XOXO!

Stephanie & Russ | Wedding

Stephanie and Russ’s wedding day was back in early February… and yes, it was I.C.E cold – ย but, the day went so smooth and beautifully. I always love shooting weddings, but I really loved being a part of this one… the reason being – Stephanie, Russ, and both their families were THE nicest, sweetest, people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. (Steph, give your mom a hug for me!!!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Stephanie and Russ, it was SUCH a wonderful experience being able to capture your beautiful wedding day… but mostly getting to know each of you and your sweet families. Again, thank you – and many blessings on your new marriage! Hugs to you both!!!!

*If you missed Stephanie’s Bridal Session – go check it out!

Enjoy their story…

Starting with some details…ย 



Loving the classic feel of her dress… I heart details.

Some sweet moments of Stephanie with her beautiful mother!!ย 

LOVED how the green really popped on the bridesmaids dresses!!ย 


The lovely bridal party!


I wanted so badly to get some artistic shots of both the bride and groom… BUT, with it being 20 degrees (literally) I had to snap quickly! Still though, I got lovely shots of them both ๐Ÿ™‚

I caught this moment right before Stephanie walked down the aisle… I love it.



I love capturing the raw emotion during the exchanging of vows…



Can they be any cuter?!


The End ๐Ÿ™‚

Michelle & Eric | Engaged

I can’t express how excited I am to blog this awesome engagement shoot of Michelle and Eric!! I was super pumped when Michelle got in touch with me about photographing their upcoming wedding in May a few months back, BUT… my heart crumbled soon after when she let me know which day in May when I realized I was already booked for another super fab wedding. Even though I’m not able to capture their wedding day, I was able to capture a piece of their love with an Engagement Session and I’m super thrilled to capture them as man and wife with a Day After Session coming up in May!!

Michelle and Eric, thank you both for allowing me to catch a glimpse of your awesome love for each other. Your comfortableness with one another was refreshing and I SO look forward to capturing it again in May for your Day After Session. Congrats and big hugs to you both… and please know I would have loved to been a part of your special day coming up soon.

Eric is a lucky man ๐Ÿ™‚

Favorite collage by far!! Super presh!!!!


Her ring was breathtaking… really, it was.

Michelle, your smile is contagious ๐Ÿ™‚

Why I heart shooting in springtime.

Favorite shot of the day!!


Another favorite…

…had to show a little more love towards the bling!!


This is why I love my clients…


Second favorite shot of the day. Love. This.


Love ending on this. (sigh)
