AR: How did you meet?

J: We met through work where we had similar jobs and worked by each other most of the day

B: we met working at Scott’s Miracle Gro. We had the same job on different teams so we were around each other a lot, but never really talked till one day we did and the rest is history!

AR: Tell us about your first date?

J: The Franklin park conservatory because plants and Brenna loves plants!

B: Our first official date was the Franklin park conservatory on New Years Eve, finished off with skyline chili 

AR: How did your engagement happen?

J: I took her to the Charleston falls reserve and I asked her to marry me during the hike under a waterfall.

B: We went for a hike at Charleston falls nature preserve with our dog Duncan. While I was hold a bag of dog poop he told me to put it down and then he asked me to marry him in front of the falls! 

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

J: How happy everyone (especially me and B) was that day. It was nice to see emotions from people we don’t normally see emotions from.

B: standing in the door way of the house and seeing Jacob for  the first time and being able to tell he could see me. Such a happy feeling that’s hard to explain!

- 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!"
