You probably remember Ashley from a number of my portrait sessions in the past! A few months ago we met up for her Bridal Portraits in JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh NC. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Ashley was a stunner in her blush ball gown and definitely drew the attention of onlookers. 

Ashley and Eric (finally) said "I Do!" this passed Saturday at Leslie-Alford-Mims House in Holly Springs NC. Justin and I were so happy to be invited to their big day and Ashley looked even more amazing, especially with Eric holding her hand! These two are so in love and I am thrilled to be apart of watching them grow together.

A wedding dress is both an intimate and personal for a woman - it must reflect the personality and style of the bride.

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

We had such a fun day and I am so pumped that I get to share these with you all! This has been the hardest secret to keep to myself since starting this business :) To Ashley: Congrats to you beautiful! You and Eric are going to have an amazing life together! If you want to book me for a bridal portrait session or your wedding day, lets talk!

And before you go, how about a little behind the scenes... when you wear a ball gown, apparently you can hide two grown women behind it! hahaha meet Erika and Cami, Ashley's two besties and if it weren't for them, I'm not sure how we would have been able to pull off this session!
