Ashlei + Brian: Engaged

I love it when 2 people are really into one another and Ashlei and Brian are a true testament to that! When we first met, they told me that it was important that they do their engagement session on the campus of CAU in Atlanta. This is where they met 20 years ago.

I thought that was an amazing idea and was up to the challenge of shooting outside of my usual locations. We had a ball and during the session Brian just happened to run into an old college friend from back in the day. I enjoyed hanging out and hearing Ashlei and Brian reminisce about their school daze and how much fun they used to have.

Here's a preview, including a few of my favorites.

What can I say? I just knew! When I saw your work, I told Brian that I had found just the photographer. I shared that you were "the Knot Pick for 2008", but he said that "his boy" had given him the name of a photographer that we just "HAD TO" go with. So we agreed to compare services, cost, etc. He called and left a message with his photographer and I called and left a message with you!

Well as a testiment to my relationship with Brian and how in tune we are... both messages were unknowingly left on YOUR machine! It was confirmation to us! We knew when we drove from Snellville to Powder Springs in a rainstorm that, unless you said you wanted our first born, we wanted to work with you.
You made us look FANTASTIC and captured the true nature of our love and friendship in the place where our story began. I can't thank you enough and can't wait until October 2, 2009! Be sure to bring tissue.
