I have been looking forward to this day for months! Ashley and I met in our church community group back in 2012. We were both going to through very big life changes at the time, and I honestly believe that God brought us together for a specific purpose in those very difficult moments. Five years have passed, she’s getting married and she has asked ME to photograph her big day. This is literally the biggest honor, and I cannot wait to celebrate with them in October!
To set the scene properly, I think we need to go back to Ashley & Frank’s proposal (from my perspective of course). Ashley had told me in church one Sunday morning that she knew Frank was the one, and she was sure he would be popping the question sometime soon. I’m pretty sure I squealed with excitement and was anxious to get the news. Not long after I got a text with a single image of her hand with a beautiful diamond ring on her finger. Insert another squeal! The proposal happened after Frank & Ashley saw “Beauty and the Beast” at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach! It only made sense that they dressed up to play the part for their e-sesh, with a red rose and all <3 Scroll on down for this lovely beauty & the beast themed session!
