I was so honored to capture Kyle and Hayden's big day! They drove 20+ hours from Alabama to come and elope here at Garden of the Gods! I was so stinking excited when she contacted me on IG as I had been dying to do and Elopement and what better way of ending 2017 then hanging out with these two awesome peeps!

 It couldn't have been more of a perfect day, the sun was shinning and they both looked amazing!

Hayden's mom helped her in her dress while Hayden's dad straightened up Kyle's tux, and then we were on our way! The ceremony was short and sweet and oh so perfect, and after they said I do we explored the park! It was so cool as we walked around the park everyone ooo'ed and awed over Hayden and Kyle ( mostly Hayden as she looked stunning in her dress, No offense Kyle ;) as we waited for the guys to come back around with the car on the other side of the park I took some stunning photos of Hayden and her dress as the sun set. During that time people were honking and yelling out of there cars It was so sweet and I know Hayden felt so special! We ended their special day on the most beautiful look out EVER! With the stunning view of Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peek there is no better way to end an elopement! I had so much fun with these two, as I hope they cherish not only the pictures I captured but the time they spent together exploring! :)

 Elopements have my heart as the focus is all about the two of them and there love for each other! 


Yesenia found me on IG and was super excited to do a session with me! Which warms my heart!! I normally allow two outfits for each shoot as it can give the couple a nice mix of different looks! I had no idea what Yesenia had picked out for there second outfit until they changed and it was SO AMAZING!! Both Yesenia and Justin are in the army and they decided to wear their uniforms for the rest of the session! I was so stoked! I knew they would get a lot of  love when I posted a sneak of there session on my IG but close to 900 people liked there photo! I was blown away on how much love they got, as they so deserve it! I had a blast with these two! They have so much love for each other and know how to have a fun time! 

    Zach and Kris were so awesome to be our models for the day as I was collabing with another AMAZING photog that was visiting from MN! They were so fun and natural to shoot and and such a perfect vibe for the area! From her dress down to his suspenders they just looked fab! I grabbed one of my all time fav hats from GIGI PIP (which I have a link in my bio on my page) which topped off the look, I was a bit jealous as she looked way better in the hat then I did! :) Here is some more of there awesome session!! ENJOY!

Chase and Meredith's home session could not get any cuter! There place was so dainty and cute I could not handle it! On top of that they had the most precious dog named honey, which she has her own IG, STAHHHPP! Cutest thing ever!! She stole the whole shoot! Thanks for letting me in your home, you guys were  beyond perfect! Also Meredith is a local photog as well and does some amazing work! Go check her out! @meredithsoyphotography

HOLY NO WORDS FOR THIS ELOPEMENT!!!!! Megan contacted me three weeks before their elopement date asking if I was available for a elopement in TX!!! Shaking while responding to her email I was beyond excited she reached out to me as well #1 elopements are my fav and #2 traveling for a wedding was one of my goals for 2018, had no idea I would get to check it off my list so soon :))). Any who I didn't want to get my hopes up to soon as I have gotten equerries before that I never heard back from( which grrrr I hate that, don't ghost your photographer) We wrote back and forth and she said YES TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER!!! That should be a show ahaha. Texting back and forth things moved so fast, she booked my flight and hotel and car rental the next day, three weeks flew by and it was finally here! I met with Tim and Megan the night I flew in as I wanted to chat and get to know them, which pause: I love getting to know my clients before had especially my bride and grooms as I want it to be so comfortable when we shoot. SOO I pretty much want to be BFF's before your wedding AND after!! Ok, back on track Ash. lol Megan and I had talked for weeks sending hilarious mems and such and going over her vision of what she wanted! We chatted for about 2hrs the night before about Tim and Megans love story and GAHH just loved it as it was some what like my own, as I got married young as well. We got a good 6hrs of sleep and then meet that morning for the big day! Walked into Megans stinking cute Airbnb to be greeted by her twin sister, older sister, mom and dad, which let me tell you are the sweetest people in the world! From then we got Megan first look ready, where Tim was surprised by her in her wedding dress, which she told him wouldn't be in in time ;) We took a short drive down to Enchanted Rock to have the short ceremony and then go explorin'! I couldn't have asked for a better day weather wise as it was overcast the whole time( it was 9am in the morning which sun wise can be pretty bright) Thank you for letting me capture such a beautiful journey in your life, it was such an honor!!

My Arizona Trip was nothing short of amazing! I am sooo in love with the desert vibe I wanted to take a big cacti home with me so bad! Joe and Nique were so amazing and had so much fun running around with them in the desert! 

Had the pleasure of hosting my first workshop this May and it was nothing short of amazing! I got to 
teach and shoot along side 11 other amazing photographers and it was just so refreshing!! I will be 
hosting another one May of 2019 so make sure to keep an eye out!! 

Thank you to the amazing vendor that helped out!
