A Dreamy Garden Engagement Session | Ashley + Brandon


Ya’ll… I waited FOREVER for this shoot with Ashley + Brandon! We’ve been scheming and planning for the perfect shoot with the perfect location for so long and after a corona reschedule… we finally made it happen!

If I could shoot at this location everyday, I probably would. Did you know downtown Waxahachie was THIS pretty!? I didn’t until about a few months ago when a precious senior shared it with me. It was the most gorgeous place this engagement session and matched Ashley’s gorgeous dress perfectly! Just wait until you see how full this blog post is because… let me tell ya… these two are the sweetest couple. It’s clear they love each other so much and Cody and I enjoyed every second we spent with them! Ashley even brought the sweetest gift for Baby Ray. A precious wooden camera with Baby Ray engraved on it. So sweet that hormones made me cry. It is what it is ya know. 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorites of Ashley + Brandon! We are already so blessed by their friendship and cannot wait for their December wedding at The Grand Ivory!

Well this is a great way to start… am I right?

At this point in the shoot, I KNEW I would be obsessed with these images. Internally giggling.

One word: MODELS.

If I ever say, “Hey I found a great spot around the corner…” it’s probably a parking lot, but I swear it’ll be beautiful!

Ashley is a fan of forehead kisses. Same girl same.
