10.24.12 | Wedding Photos
When I left home for college ten years ago, I don’t remember being afraid or nervous- I was simply excited to start this whole new chapter of my life. Then, after helping me move my stuff into my dorm, my mom and sister left and there I was alone in a dorm room… and it was then that the trepidation arose and I thought for the first time “Whoa. This is happening.” I was one of the first girls to move into our suite so that first night only a few people were around. I hadn’t yet met my roommate or any of my suite mates with whom I’d share a bathroom for the next year- I got a little nervous wondering how we would all get along and if we would actually like each other. Thankfully, I was super lucky to have been placed in a suite with some really awesome ladies, many of whom I still call dear friends to this day. Ashlee was one of those ladies. Anyone who knows Ash would be likely to say that she is the nicest, loveliest, most genuine and caring women on the planet- and that’s no exaggeration. She just has this amazing ability to be nice to everyone, and is always more concerned with how others are feeling than her own feelings. She is kind and compassionate and has a smile that can light up a room, and all who know her are enriched to have her in their lives.
When she asked me to photograph her wedding, I wasn’t only honored, but also a bit nervous for she herself is a great photographer with a knack for travel photography. She and Chad have traveled so much together and she blogs about it all on her amazing personal blog with some really great images that make me one day want to travel to the places she has seen.
Here are some of my favorite photos from Ashlee & Chad’s very special day at Anderson Ranch in Sonoma. So incredibly happy for you both!
I have honestly never seen Ashlee happier than she was on this day. <3
Ash coordinated a Flash Mob to surprise Chad during the reception! It was such a huge hit!
You may remember Tracy & Erik from their wedding I shot last year. Tracy also lived in the dorms with us and was Ashlee’s roommate throughout college.
Gangnam Style. Of course.
Ashlee & Chad- Thank you so much for asking me to photograph your wedding day. It was so much fun to be there and document. I’m so happy for you both and know you’re going to have a beautiful life together! xoxo
