Hello Everyone! Ashley and Phillip are on the blog today! Ashley was a bridesmaid at wedding I shot in Savannah a few years ago (Angela & Patrick‘s Wedding – Thanks guys 🙂 ). I remember Ashley vividly because she actually told me that when she finds that “special” guy (Phillip actually found her..lol) ) she would love for me to shoot her wedding. We laughed about it but that conversation was imprinted in my mind. Years later she reached out to me about being engaged! I was very happy for her and even happier when she asked me to shoot her wedding! I love when my new clients come directly from old clients. It is definitely a huge blessing. For the shoot Ashley and Phillip wanted a traditional, fun and modern feel. So we came up with a bunch of sites/looks that would fit that profile. The results were great and we all had an amazing time. I am a big believer that E-sessions should showcase the couple in their true element and this shoot was no exception. I can’t wait to be a part of Ashley and Phillip’s wedding in a few months. Congrats guys! The shoot took place at the Atlanta History Center and Atlantic Station. Check out the story and how it all started below. Enjoy!
Phillip and Ashley met at a local Atlanta restaurant while out with friends for lunch. Ashley and her friends had just left a bridal appointment in the area helping a friend shop for the perfect wedding dress. The girls were hungry and decided to stop by El Aztec for a bite to eat afterwards. It happened to be Cinco de Mayo and Phillip and his friends were at the same restaurant celebrating the holiday.
Shortly after their arrival Phillip noticed Ashley walk in with her group of friends. He watched her for some time, waiting for his opportunity to say hello. After the girls ordered their food , they decided to hit the dance floor. If you know Ashley at all, you know she was more than happy to stay behind and hold the table. Seeing that Ashley was all alone Phillip walked over, sat down, and introduced himself. The two hit it off instantly and talked for over an hour at the table. As she was preparing to leave the two exchanged numbers.
They kept in touch over the next few weeks and Phillip eventually invited Ashley over for a Memorial Day cookout. After agreeing to come, Ashley began to have second thoughts about this “stranger” she had met and bailed on the cookout. Communication between the two dwindled down and they both went their respective ways.
Fast forward a year later. Cinco de Mayo was quickly approaching bringing thoughts of Ashley back to the forefront of Phillip’s mind. On a whim, he decided to reach out to her. The two met for a first date at Strip in Atlantic Station the very next day after church. Despite a whole year having passed, the two picked right back up where they had left off…sitting and talking for over four hours!! Within a month they began dating exclusively and the rest was history!!
