I have a sign!! :D

Hi Everyone!

I am so ridiculously excited right now! I just went down to the studio to meet with a client, and I was shocked to see that my sign was put up! I cannot even express how excited I am :)

Studio photos will be up soon. Also we'll have a grand opening sometimes hopefully this summer. Hooray!!

SNEAK PEEK!! *Sorry it's blurry, you'll have to wait!*

Garrison & Elliot

A few weeks ago I photographed my very best friend's sister and her kids. Kristin was down for the weekend and asked me if we could do a mini portrait session of her boys. So early Easter morning we made our way out to the playground for me to photograph her little gremlins ;) Needless to say, they were totally hopped up on sugar. But who wouldn't be on Easter morning?

Though the session was short, and FULL of energy, we got a bunch of great images. Here are just a few of my favorites:

I love this one of the three of them :)

He loves his brother!

Boys will be boys!

Lacy & Louie: Wedding

For two people who claimed to be horribly un-photogenic, Lacy and Louie made for one of my favorite weddings ever. Not only were they RIDICULOUSLY photogenic, but they had me in stitches all day, constantly making me laugh. They are the couple that I always dream of: crazy fun, photograph beautifully, and totally in love.

They got married at the Winter Park Farmer's Market in downtown Winter Park on April 5. The weather was beautiful (albeit a little hot, see photo below) and perfect for their afternoon wedding. I seriously had such an amazing time with this couple, I couldn't believe just a few months before at our first meeting that they kept telling me "We don't do photos, we're not photogenic, we don't like cameras."

The day flew by so quickly, but luckily we had some time during the choreographed dancing (no Electric Slide for these two!) to go out and take some photos around Winter Park. They rocked it out, making want to ditch their reception all together and just keep snapping away. Here's a little note from Lacy that just absolutely made my day:

"Ashley, I just wanted to thank you for taking such beautiful pictures of our wedding! Louie and I could not possibly love the pictures more--they are amazing and you did a wonderful job of capturing our all of our happiness and excitement. Also, we really appreciated how you made the picture-taking fun and relaxed (we were both kind of nervous about the whole picture-taking thing, but you were awesome and totally put us at ease). We really can't thank you enough--I'm thrilled that these are the images that we will have to remember our wedding day. Thank you so, so much! - Lacy"

Thank you, Lacy and Louie, for allowing me to be a part of your gorgeous wedding day. I am so happy that you trusted me to capture your day, despite your photography fears. ;) Congratulations on a beautiful marriage and what I know will be a beautiful life!

Gorgeous details

So cute!! They were so happy :)

This is the moment in the afternoon when it was crazy hot and the cater brought them some water. Do you see the desperation in their faces? haha I love this shot!

Jessica & Arturo : Engagement

When Jessica called me and told me that she was getting married, I was so excited. I've known Jessica since I was 16, when we worked together in the best ice cream shop ever, LaCremerie. We always had a blast when we worked together (even if we did have sprained wrists from all the scooping!) but as we grew up, we left LaCremerie, and parted ways. So when she called to tell me that she was engaged and that she was getting married this summer, I couldn't have been more excited for her. Not only is she marrying a fabulous guy, Arturo, but the girl has was too much style, it's really not fair. (I'm talking skirts and heels everyday. It's inspiration) ;)

So for their engagement shoot we trekked down to Rollins College together with their little bundle of joy, Prince, had the whole campus to ourselves, and they totally rocked the shoot. Prince kept us laughing the whole time (note the 3rd photo down...). He was so excited about the shoot, that we had to tether him to Jessica's purse so he wouldn't go prancing off through the campus. He was great :)

So even though Jessica broke out of her skirts and jeans, they still looked amazing in their "matching" outfits, down to the shoes. Even Prince had his own matching sweater! They were adorable. This is probably the BIGGEST engagement post ever, but I just couldn't narrow it down. They are so obviously in love, and I am now even more stoked for their fabulous summer Miami wedding. I can't wait!

Prince was such a doll. I loved him!

Here he is, tethered to the purse. This just cracked me up

I LOOOVED all of these little flowers that had fallen to the ground :)

Check out their shoes! It was so cute! :)

Yummy afternoon light

Probably my favorite from the day

Or maybe this one ;) I think he's in love
