|| Ashley & Chad ||
These two. Let me tell you about these two. I met Ashley shortly after she and Chad got engaged. She had seen some of my work through a friend and asked if I could do her engagement photos. I was thrilled to shoot their rustic country style engagements and immediately fell in love with this witty, outdoorsy couple. They were so in love and not shy about it at all. They are so wonderfully comfortable and natural in front of the camera and so fun to explore with.
I have had the opportunity to photograph this amazing couple multiple times. They were my first wedding and I could not have asked for a better pair to learn with. I feel extremely fortunate that I got to follow this couple's love story all the way through from engaged to hitched!
Ashley and Chad planned a beautiful outdoor, country wedding on Vashon Island, Wa and so many people came together to celebrate their love. It felt like the entire island showed up! At the heart of it, this wedding was a party. Everyone was so happy and excited for these two. The venue was absolutely beautiful. The ceremony took place near the pond at the Lodge where Ashley's family has been members her entire life. The reception featured a Bloody Mary Bar and what country wedding would be complete without a camp out after the reception?
Thank you so much Mr. and Mrs. Cook for allowing me to be a part of your special day! Wishing you all the happiness in the world!
