true love…

She introduced the idea gently… “SOooo would you photograph my wedding?” well, maybe not so gently.

“…but Ash, I don’t DO weddings, I don’t have the equipment, I have a seriously old camera, I know nothing about flash, they won’t be crispy clean and perfect. ” I said.

“Yeah, I don’t care about all that, we want you.” she said. And there was nothing in me that could say no, she is just so lovely and dear in every way…and I knew she meant it (but it still stressed me out), I knew she just wanted to marry Dan. THAT was everything, the rest was just details…their love is tender and sweet…and true. This is probably the only kind of wedding I could even attempt.

And there is no way I could ever do justice to that day, there was a warmth and kindness all around it…and joy. At the end, I was the one that felt blessed, to stand behind my camera and fuzzy pictures, to witness that sweet, sweet day.

Thanks Ash and Dan…we love you.

so much love and thanks to Jess Lucia for being my second shooter and wedding photographer doula that day…you were amazing.

mad props to all you wedding photographers…you have all my respect dudes…that stuff is HARD!

backyard love…

I swear I am not a wedding photographer…Ashley and Mark had the sweetest backyard wedding complete with home brewed pomegranate beer and a taco truck, not to mention such deep love from friends, family and each other. A wedding photographer was not in the budget so I snapped just a few pictures while I was there. Thank you friends for including me on such an amazing day…it was beautiful in every way.

love, love, love…

There’s nothing like a hurricane to make a wedding memorable…although I’m pretty sure the love of the new Mr. & Mrs. Waters is plenty fierce and strong all on it’s own. They beat the storm but just by a hair. What a sweet day friends! Thank you for including me…here’s a little preview:
