Sneak Peek Into Our Rooftop Photo Session
Updated: May 8, 2019
Ashley and I met in the summer of 2017 via Instagram. At the time, I was a hairstylist and she reached out to me about scheduling an appointment to start preparing for her upcoming wedding.
In the months after meeting Ashley, I met Miles (who has sat patiently and provided additional entertainment through nearly every hair appointment since). I was given the opportunity to style Ashley's hair for the couple's mountaintop wedding ceremony and I'm happy to report that it held up through a hike in the rain.
In exchange, Ashley and Miles took our first set of photos together.
Best trade ever.
The pair quickly became my favorite package deal and I always looked forward to hearing about their hikes, travel plans, photography business, life goals, and all of the little stories in between.
It's been a little over a year since our last photoshoot with Ashley + Miles, so I was excited to plan this rooftop session with them. As always, they truly captured the essence of who we are and the photos turned out even more heart-warming than I could have imagined.
Here are just a few sneak peeks, a fun fact about Leigh Anna's arm band, and a couple of throwbacks from our first set of photos with Ashley + Miles.
During our session, Miles asked about Leigh Anna's arm band, which by now is as natural to her as my tattoos are to me. She got it seven years ago during a trip to India where she was helping teach neuroscience to Buddhist monks. It was blessed by the Dalai Lama and she's worn it regularly since 2012 as a token of good luck.
I'm so grateful to have learned the value of having professional photos taken early in our relationship. We shape shift, blossom, and evolve in so many ways throughout the year; It's humbling to know that we will always have these photos to reflect back on and be reminded of each season of our lives together.
