Ashley | Bridals

    Happiest Thursday to y’all my love muffins! I’ve been meaning to post my latest work on the blog, and really, I have just been TERRIBLE at blogging it. Honestly. I feel overwhelmed most days just with the lists I make for myself and well…I’m taking a small step today and blogging one. And y’all…it’s not just ONE…this is one of my favorite bridal sessions to date. You know what fires me up? Taking pictures. You know what fires me up EVEN more? Taking pictures of beautiful hearted people. 
    Now y’all…this girl, as you are about to see will just make you smile because of the amazing energy she has. I literally couldn’t help but SMILE the whole time I edited these. She’s stunning, kind, and I’m so fortunate to know this little lady. She’s been in touch with me a couple of times asking how to start a blog and I simply just told her to DO it. So, she did. Go say hi, she’s one of the sweetest, loveliest souls I’ve ever, EVER had the pleasure of working with. I simply adore her and her heart. You can see just by her smile how amazing of a person she is. I just adore her and her joyous personality. It’s infectious.

    Ashley wanted to be barefoot the entire shoot…isn’t that THE cutest thing ever!? It’s totally her thing, and she said if she could, she’d never wear shoes. I think this is pretty stinkin’ adorable so we ran with it and jumped in the field. Doesn’t she just make you happy?

    We then headed to the college campus of Sam Houston State University (where we both attended college) and grabbed a couple more shots…WITH shoes this time. 😉 Cute, pink shoes might I add. We had so much fun!

    Just wait until you see her beautiful wedding day.

    She is so absolutely adorable!!! And you take some amazing pictures!

    I love, love love your clean processing! Such bright and pretty crisp images. I love the bare feet, but the pink shoes are pretty cute too 🙂

    These are beautiful! Love her dress! I just started a photography business this summer and I was still wondering what type of equipment you use? And what kind of editing you use? Since I am just starting and I work full time, I am having a hard time getting all the business side of it together. I was wondering if you have any advice. I love your photography!

    I am loving all those photos! I do not think I could pick just one even if I tried… All are just too cute! Great job 🙂
