• Hi there! Welcome to my wedding photography blog, where I share a few of my favorite images from my weddings and engagement shoots. For the past eight years, I've been a professional wedding photographer based out of Southern Ca. During the late summer of 2013, I relocated to Fernandina Beach Fl and after the new year, will begin again as a Jacksonville wedding photographer. I am now accepting weddings in Fernandina Beach, Ponte Vedra, Jacksonville, Fl, and the surrounding areas. I'll continue to fly back to Southern Ca for the occasional Temecula winery wedding as well. And if you're planning a destination wedding somewhere really cool, like this recent destination wedding in Spain, I also happen to have a suitcase packed and passport handy, so gimme a ring if you're looking for a destination wedding photographer.

Ashley & Justin are Married @ Temecula Creek Inn!

Their story from their words:

A mutual friend of ours from college (Arizona State University) decided to let me know that after a year of knowing both of us individually he wanted us to meet, although it couldn’t have been at a more inconvenient time. Justin had just graduated and I still had another year to go. He was about to leave for a week-long vacation and then his internship in Denver Colorado for the summer and then he was off to Notre Dame to get his Masters in Accounting. So it was a long shot, but we were introduced. We hung out with friends for about a week and we knew we had something good. There was one week left before Justin was going to leave and we spent almost every day together trying to get to know each other. Justin then decided to cancel his vacation before he went off for his internship to spend more time together. It paid off

We began dating and doing the long distance thing for about a year, visiting about every 3 weeks. After I graduated from ASU and Justin graduated from Notre Dame we moved to Chicago together and were able to finally date in the same city!  Justin and I had just gotten back from a family vacation in Telluride Colorado. So with the cold and lots of kids running around I got sick around the end of the trip. After we got back we spend a few days in Arizona for the New Year to celebrate with our friends from college. On Jan 3rd (still not feeling to well) Justin has this wonderful idea to go on a hike. Instantly my answer is “No way I feel awful and this is vacation there is no way I am exercising”. So we came to the compromise that I would drive up there with him and do a little walking around. When we got up there we were walking around and checking out the view on top of this beautiful mountain. We sat down to relax and then there it was the question with the ring . I don’t remember a lot of what was said.. but instantly I said yes and realized why he wanted to go hiking so bad. The next part of our day was to go to his mom’s house and have dinner with her and some of his family. When I walked in all our family and friends were there. Family and friends are the most important people to Justin and I. So he had planned this amazing engagement party. He even got my parents to drive in from California for the weekend for the party too! It was amazing!!

Everyone always talks about what a special day your wedding day is going to be. And until I was there in the moment I finally understood what they meant. It was so great to see all our family and friends together. We had planned a yearlong engagement to be able to plan for a wedding of our dreams, and that it was. We had our setting tucked away in the hills for a cozy atmosphere. We especially loved our location because the ceremony and reception were right next to each other which made it so easy for our guests. I think the best part of our whole day was not only seeing the smile on each other’s faces, but seeing it on all of our family and friends faces as well. That is exactly what we wanted out of our day!
