Ashley + Marshall. Married at the Mint Museum in Charlotte.

I feel like I have known Ashley for ages.  While it hasn't really been that long, she contacted me a long time ago and asked me to photograph her wedding.  I did their engagement session 16 months before the wedding - thats a fair amount of time.  As I've said before, its always an honor to photograph another photographer's wedding.  Its an honor and also a bit nerve-racking.  Not the wedding part - thats always fun - but the after part.  Otherwise known as the "I hope they like these" part.  I feel like its much more prominent when I photograph my colleagues.  Will they like it?  Did I do ok?  But when I got down to going through Ashley's wedding I was confident she'd be excited about it.  She was very excited about marrying Marshall ... she loves the man to death.  So I just stepped back and documented the story as it unfolded. Thanks to my good friend Kaitlin who made the drive from Winston-Salem to assist me.  You are awesome!
