When Ashley first asked me about shooting for them during their OBX getaway months and months ago, I was so honored because she’s a photographer I adore and love working with so much, I’ve admired her sweetness and her spirit for YEARS since she came into my life! She is one of those people I’m just always happy to hear from, always. She has been a phenomenal second shooter and supporter in the hardest times of my life, and I am SO fortunate to know her!
Then..Justin a few weeks ago messaged me and told me the BIG surprise…he’d be proposing to Ashley during this shoot! I wasn’t just excited and happy for her, I was SO nervous because I mean…it’s a proposal and I’ve actually only ever shot one before here last here and they seriously make me so nervous in a GOOD way! During weddings, I know what’s going to happen! There is a plan, an itinerary. I know they will kiss and say I do. But proposals are crazy because one person has NO idea what’s about to hit them and I LOVE that!! Justin was my dream man because he got down IN THE SEA (and if you haven’t seen before, Ashley is TOTALLY a mermaid at heart) — and that’s how he asked her to spend forever with him. What a true blessing to be here for this! I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU TWO and I wish you the ABSOLUTE best!!!!!!! 🙂 XOXOXO
