In keeping with my Daisy Jones + The Six, interview style journals… please enjoy Cole + Lily’s love story!!

Ashley Rene: How did you two meet?

Cole: We met on bumble

Lily: We matched on Bumble! Cole had to use his extend on me…I swiped because of the picture with his dog 🙂

AR: What was your first date?

C: We went to chipotle and walked through a park

L: We met at a chipotle. It was very awkward at first because I had just had lunch with my grandparents so I didn’t even order anything except a drink! But as soon as I saw Cole I knew he was the one. After Cole ate we went to prairie oaks metro park and walked around.

AR: How did your proposal happen?

C: I surprised her before our 3 year anniversary date!

L: Cole and I had planned to go to dinner to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. We got dressed up so he told me he wanted his mom to take some nice pictures of us. While she was taking pictures he proposed! Then we went to dinner with our families to celebrate.

AR: What do you remember most from your wedding day?

C: Seeing Lily for the first time.

L: Reading our vows to each other. It was definitely the most special moment of the whole day.

- Emilee, bride

"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!"

- Jordan, bride

"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."

- Halle, Bride

"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!"
