I met Ashley a while back when we worked at a wedding together in the Philly region.  She worked for an event planning company at a popular wedding venue and I happened to work a wedding there.  Several months later I received an email from her letting me know she was engaged and her search was on for a wedding photographer.  With her first hand knowledge of the industry and also the fact that she has worked with quite a large amount of photographers, I was honored she chose me to document her wedding day.  It's always a rad feeling when colleagues in the industry feel comfortable enough with me and my work to hire me when they have so many options at their disposal.

I was pumped for Ashley & Chris's wedding right from the start.  They chose a unique Philadelphia location, Bahdeebahdu, which is basically an art installation studio in the Northeast area.  There had only been 1 wedding there prior to theirs and that just gets me more excited because its basically a blank canvas!  

Their wedding day was amazing.  Besides the fact that they got a glorious 85 degree summer day in early Spring ... the wedding was intimate, friendly, relaxed, and visually stunning.  They were both so pumped on having me there, as well as the pictures before they even saw them, which is wonderfully inspirational to me and makes my day even more enjoyable.  It was an incredible day with incredible people and I wish them all the best in marriage and life.
