I am so excited that Stacy had the chance to be on Oprah recently.
Now if you follow any of my personal photos, Stacy is the photographer that takes almost all of my family's photos. She has been so gracious to second shoot for me for weddings and asked me recently to teach a class at the Charleston Center for Photography. I love Stacy and her kind heart and endearing personality. She is gracious, humble and gorgeous...not to mention the best photo poser I have ever met. She is America's Next Combat Photographer Model ;) She is my hero and I can't wait to see her on Oprah today.
I love you Stacy and am so glad you got this opportunity. I can't imagine what I would have done in the situations you have been taken through, but God had his arms around you and brought you home with some amazing and inspiring imagery for us to enjoy and learn from.
Here are a few links to check out the story, her photos, and the Oprah trailer.

Krissy & Trae

Krissy, Trae, and I met in Charleston for what turned out to be a crazy weather day. Is this just my I bring the clouds and rain? I try to work it out no matter what the weather does...but poor Krissy had some goosebumps (and we got wet) during the shoot...but you would never know if I didn't tell you.
I am so blessed to work with such awesome couples, and they are no exception. This wedding is going to be awesome...and there is a bonus. Krissy and Trae have chosen to do another engagement session!!! I am also super excited to shoot Krissy's bridal session. I can't say it enough how important these both can be. Everyone gets to know each other, we get to laugh, you get to feel sexy together and we get to have a little date of sorts together. For the bridal sessions it is a trial run for hair and make-up and just a fun day for anyone that comes. By the time the wedding comes around everyone is like "oh that's just Ashley"...and that is the way that I love it!
Krissy and Trae were the hardest interviewers yet (when they hired me), and I love that! They did their homework and knew what they wanted in a photographer. Pictures are very important to them and I can't wait to spend another Saturday with them!! You guys make me love this job even more, I just want to squeeze you guys!!!

Erina & Steve

Erina and Steve flew in from Indianapolis for a mellow-after-Christmas-vacation with family...some of them all the way from Japan!!! Erina is a super savvy bride-to-be and found me while searching on the internet. I am sooooo glad she did! I had a great time shooting this engagement session for them. I hope they decide to fly back for their upcoming wedding so we can hang out again! On that note...You can totally fly me up north for the big day ;)

Sabrina + Bill: wedding

Sabrina and Bill met in the Navy. They both really great careers and are balancing love and life...not an easy job. They decided to come back to Bill's hometown of Mayesville, SC to tie the knot. Kristin shot some of the shots you will see...including the aisle shot with me in it- yikes ;)
She is my awesome assistant whom I just love ;)
