This is Ashlee and Guy.
This is their story.
I feel so honored to capture such an amazing love story. Ashlee came in to my life in 2011. We were both young waitresses just starting out. Ashlee and I connected immediately. We were both in what you would call rocky relationships, but as I moved to college, her story took a drastic turn.
John and Ashlee were the on-again, off-again type of couple. But if theres one thing that they couldn’t deny, it was each other (You have all seen the Notebook right?!). I was so happy for her when they finally began to make a serious go at it. A little while later, Ashlee announced some great news! She was pregnant with their son. They welcomed Carter in to the world on September 14, 2013. Ashlee and Carter admired John and his ease when it came to being a father. They celebrated 2 years of holidays as a family-
Then the worst day came.
On June 23, 2015, Ashlee lost her best friend and Carter lost his father. John was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on his way to work. I can’t even begin to imagine how she felt. I admire her strength so much.
Then on June 3rd 2016, Ashlee met Guy. At the same restaurant we met. Waiting tables.
Ashlee told me “I truly believe he was sent to us for sure. He really is such a great partner with all that comes with a grieving spouse. He is amazing with Carter in every way too.”
Their chemistry is undeniable. I knew when I met Guy last fall, and saw them together, all 3 of them, that this day would come.
I can’t wait to photograph this gorgeous couple on their wedding day..
Oh and by the way-
Carter says his favorite this about Guy is “he likes to play fights with him” <3
