Ashley & Israel
Ashley and Israel went to the same high school and shared the same best friend, but incredibly didn't meet until after Ashley's first semester in college! Soon after meeting they became inseparable, and it really isn't hard to see why. They have a really strong relationship that has overcome even the hardest obstacles, long distance as they both pursued their careers only made the moments spent together all the more special. Life can be full of uncertainties, but the love they have for each other helped them overcome it all.
Israel planned the most beautiful proposal this past October, he made sure to include close family to be a part of it, and Ashley says she didn't expect it at all!. He jokingly says he was waiting for her to propose! haha that's just their relationship's dynamic: playful and fun!
Nine wonderful years together, they are now planning a beautiful wedding in January!
Every once in a while I come across couples that truly make an engagement session feel like I'm simply spending time with old friends. Ashley and Israel were so much fun to work with! We spent some time walking through the park, laughing and finding the good light. They were much fun and so happy in front of the camera, which is clear to see in these photos!
Thank you both so much for reminding me why I love to do what I do, and for letting me chronicle such a beautiful love story! Cheers to you, and to your future together as husband and wife!
