Where do I even begin with these two?! I can’t believe I get the honor of capturing this season for Ashley & Dakota. I’ve known both of them since college, & getting to watch their story unfold over the past year has been so beautiful! I first met Dakota during our freshman year at Mississippi College, & he quickly became one of my dearest friends. Ashley actually worked with me when I was a residence hall director the year after I graduated, & it was SUCH a blessing to get to know her & her amazing heart! Fast forward to about a year ago when Dakota told me he had asked Ashley out on a date & my heart exploded!! It’s been such a joy to see their relationship grow over the past year & get to freak out with Dakota when he told my twin sister & I that he had bought a ring & would be proposing soon!!
Dakota proposed to Ashley in December, & I was BEYOND honored when they asked me to capture this season for them! They actually set their May wedding date based on when I could be available (seriously the best), & I will never get over getting to be a part of this sweet time with them! God has been so faithful, & I absolutely cannot wait to see all that he has in store for their marriage. I know they are going to be such an amazing team as husband & wife!!
We had the most gorgeous weather for their engagement session last week! They had their first date in Jackson & they love their city, so it was only fitting that we do their session downtown! The JOY that Ashley & Dakota have together is contagious & so beautiful! I loved capturing every moment & cannot wait to capture all of the joy-filled moments that will make up their big day in May.
Ashley & Dakota — thank y’all for not only giving me the honor of being your friend but now also your wedding photographer! I’m so thankful for you both & know the Lord is going to continue to do amazing things through your marriage!! Love y’all so much!!
