With all of the rain and gloomy weather that North Carolina has been suffering through recently, I wanted to share Ashley and Andrews spring session. To remind us all that after every storm there is beauty. The green blooms in magnitude, the air is fresh, the sun is warm and we get to enjoy the beauty that spring has has finally sprung. As I look forward to this change in season, I reflect back on an evening spent at my parents beautiful property capturing with these two.
Ashley and Andrew are no new clients. These two have been in my life for many years. Andrew since birth and Ashley since the 8th grade. Andrew is my cousin and we grew up very close. Ashley became one of my best friends in 8th grade and we’ve carried our friendship since, and now she gets to be apart of the family!
You can imagine the excitement I experienced when I found out Andrew was going to propose! I was even more excited when they agreed to let me capture them just a few weeks after. There is nothing like the glow a couple has after getting engaged. The comforting fact knowing that the person that means the world to you, has agreed to spend all their days forward loving and caring for you. Gives me the chills every time I get to witness that in couples that I capture.
These two are all smiles when they are around each other. Relationships are hard work and are not always easy, but these two make it seem all worth the while. During their shoot they could not stop smiling. It was such a sweet thing to witness, as they were having so much fun just hanging out and being with each other. The simplicity of just laughing with each other brought them each such joy and peace, and it was reflected in their expressions. What a blessing to each other to know, that the person they will be spending the rest of their lives with, brings them such joy and comfort.
May we all have the happiness these two share and may we all look forward to the spring weather that is to come.
Ashley and Andrew, it was a joy to capture the special love that the two of you share and I truly can not wait to see all the joys that life will have to offer you as this new season of life begins for you. I love you both and wish you the best!
