This morning when I opened my eyes, no joke, the first thing I thought was that today is the day I get to share Ashley & Chris’s engagement shoot with you! I am absolutely giddy to share this one! We got together with these guys to hang out in their backyard and do a quick engagement shoot before their wedding later this month. We drank some wine, had some bruschetta….and THEN we started shooting. When we walked outside, we saw this little set up with flowers in cool pots and the most amazing purple velvet chair you ever did see. Ashley actually used to be a merchandising stylist for Anthropologie, and she put everything together flawlessly.
Then, the light. Ohhh the glorious LIGHT that absolutely pours through the trees on their property. Which is covered in this incredible green clovery stuff that is the stuff that photography dreams are made of! And then, these two?? Perfection. Ashley also used to be a real legit model (like the fly to Paris, in major ad campaigns kind) so to say that she can work it in front of the camera would be the understatement of the millennium. But what I loved most is that this shoot was truly just about the two of them, and how they love on one another. It wasn’t posey or contrived, just a real, natural beautiful love together. And the two of them doing what they love most: hanging out in their backyard, sipping wine, and sitting in the garden they planted together.
Ashley & Chris, we adore you guys! We can’t wait to see you again in just a few weeks, where we will celebrate the BIG day together!
So much love,
