AR: How did you two meet?
Sam: We met through a dating app. He had a picture of him and his family at a cardinals baseball game and I remember liking that he was close with his family! When we first start talking he also bought the book I was reading at the time so we could talk about it.
Daniel: On a dating app. I had to message her twice about a month apart before she responded.
AR: What was your first date?
S: . We went to dinner at the beer barrel. Our first date was the day after Valentine’s Day so wanted to pick a pretty casual place. I remember having so much in common and the conversation being effortless.
D: Beer barrel. I always tried to get to first dates early to be the first one there but Sam beat me to it. Was a great date and I asked her on another one.
AR: How did your proposal happen?
S: We took a trip to Alaska last year and on our first full day there we took a private plane on a sightseeing tour of the kenai fjords national park. Part of the tour included stopping on top of a glacier in the park and Dan proposed there. It was magical!
D: We had planned a trip to Alaska, so I decided to propose on top of a glacier.
AR: What do you remember most from your wedding day?
S: So many great moments to choose from! One thing that stuck out was my maid of honor collected letters from my closest friends and family and put them in a scrapbook for me. She gave it to me the morning of the wedding as I was getting ready and reading through everyone’s letters made me feel so loved! The last letter was from Daniel and it reconfirmed how much he loves me and how excited we both were. It set such a great tone for the day and will be a great keepsake to reread in the future.
D: Our first look at each other. We had barely seen each other all day so I was extremely excited to see her.

"Ashley is amazing. We could not have asked for a more personable, professional, kind, hardworking, and fun photographer. We loved every part of the process of working with Ashely—from the meetings to the big day. Her work is phenomenal. She knows how to get the best photos while working well with the clients. I can not recommend Ashely enough. We plan to continue to use her for future photo sessions. "
" I dearly love every one of my couples, and I feel so grateful when they love me back!"

"I don’t even know where to begin with Ashley. She was more than a photographer for me on my wedding day. She was a coordinator, a real life anxiety cure, a hair dresser during pictures & the reception, company that I truly enjoyed for the day, and of course, a wonderful photographer as well. She was with us throughout the whole day with no rush to hurry through anything & always making sure we were okay and getting the pictures we wanted. Joe & I truly do not know what we would’ve done without her on our big day. If you’re getting married, you absolutely have to hire her."
"Company that I truly enjoyed for the day."

"We cannot say enough wonderful things about Ashley and all she did for us for our big day as well as the days that led up to it. She is timely, organized, and goes above and beyond for her couples. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was so efficient throughout the entire day. Ashley is professional while still making her couples feel like friends! We got a 10 photo preview on our WEDDING NIGHT- that was so incredible to have so soon. Thank you, Ashley! The day was perfect with you behind the lens!"
