Dylan and Ashley {Married!}

FILED IN: Weddings

The last time I saw Ashley and Dylan was in Washington D.C. for their Engagement Shoot, which just so happens to be the first time David and I met them. However, after spending the day with them it was like we were old friends. When we showed up in Sonoma wine country two months later to shoot their wedding, Ashley was the most calm bride I have ever seen! She was so laid back and joking around with everyone, completely at ease and ready to marry her groom! Ashley and Dylan’s story truly is a whirlwind romance…and as Ashley’s mom said in her toast at the wedding it was so unlike the scientific, planned and calculated Ashley everyone knew to fall in love so quickly. But when it’s right, it’s right…and it is definitely right with these two. Dylan and Ashley, you two really are one of my favorite couples. Those around you can’t help but notice how in love you are and how genuine that love is. It really makes me so happy to do what I do when it can be with couples like you. David and I had a blast at the Viansa Winery (yes our job is not too shabby) celebrating your wedding day. The scenery was GORGEOUS and so were the two of you. David and I hope you enjoy these photos for the rest of what we know will be a very full and wonderful life together.

This is hands down my favorite place ever to take photos of a wedding dress. Wasn’t Ashley’s AMAZING?!
For Dylan and Ashley’s first look Ashley came up out of the wine cellar…
…their reaction was priceless.
I don’t know why, but there is just something about this one that I love.


After the ceremony, David and I headed off with the happy couple for some portraits. The Viansa has sooo many amazing spots for photos…a photographer’s dream.
