Don’t you just love meeting a GREAT couple and discovering the story of how they met?
I sure do!
I love the way a smirk creeps onto his lips as he recalls the moment he first fell for her. I love how her eyes light up as she gushes over all his adorable traits. I love the flirty looks exchanged as they decide exactly which secret parts of their love story should be omitted and which parts they simply CAN’T contain!
These heartwarming stories make me feel alive! And they remind me of everything I adore about the love of my life!
When a couple shares their special story, I feel happy, hopeful and blessed.
If you get a kick out of love stories too, you’re going to really enjoy Ashley and Jerred’s. Before you read another word, take a listen and find out how this couple’s love story began.
Press play… Enjoy!
Are they perfect for each other or what?
I’m glad I met Ashley and Jerred at such a special time in their lives. Jerred had just proposed to Ashley and they were expecting a wonderful surprise. (You DID watch the video, right?)
Adventurous and in love, these two made the perfect subjects for a fashion inspired couples shoot and storytelling video session.
Our day started with video interview.
It was so touching to learn how much family meant to this young couple. Ashley got real and raw and was moved to tears when she revealed just how much she looks up to Jerred for his strength and support.
How wonderful that this reflective moment is now recorded forever in video AND in this beautifully connected portrait!
Remember when you first discovered the love of your life and couldn’t keep your hands off each other? That kind of connection comes in super handy during a photo session!
Okay now kiss.
Okay now laugh.
Okay now smirk.
Okay now closer… closer… Perfect!
These two could nail any expression, at any time. All I needed to do was create flattering lighting, direct the poses and moments, and Ashley and Jerred took it from there.
Wanna look like a fashion model? You’ve got to OWN the camera! A little smizing… a little squinching… and you’ve got it made. (Psst: Ask me about those terms when you schedule your next Beauty session.)
For a change of pace, our awesome makeup artist (Brittany at Tickled pink Artistry), decided we should try some red lips on Ashley. Time to take things up a notch!
So let’s see, we rocked a classic Gap fashion look… We created a gorgeous couples boudoir image… We nailed the heartfelt, emotional portrait. Surely there’s still more fun to be had!
I always make sure that every Beauty portrait session includes plenty of time to just photograph the stunning woman in front of my lens. The guys don’t mind stepping out for a while and then jumping back in when we need them as arm candy.
Ashley and I tried out some wind-in-the-hair shots and dramatic lighting for a sultry boudoir look. Next she showed me the incredible buttery satin dress she brought. Remember this number from the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? I think with portraits this incredible, Ashley stands no chance of losing Jerred… like ever!
Ashley and Jerred, thank you so much for being so open with me. I can’t help but watch your video, and think this couple should be together for always! I can’t help but gaze at the love and connection in your portraits and think this couple can get through anything! I can’t help but see your smiles, your sense of fun, your beautiful embraces, and know that you two were made to be together!
Best wishes for many years of love and adventure ahead!
