It is always a tremendous honor to photograph a family member of a past client. You know you have their trust. It’s like walking into a room full of friends. But for Ashley and Ryan, it was like walking into a room full of family. In December 2014, I photographed the wedding of Ashley’s sister Jessie and her now husband Josh, as they married in Kennebunkport. That same weekend, Ryan proposed to Ashley. Her family adored him. His family adored her. There was no putting on airs; it was simply real, authentic love and acceptance. They are a couple that know what they have, and never take it for granted. They exude happiness, and it is infectious. The gorgeous day on which they were married, reflected their beauty as a couple. They were married outside on the water at the Nonantum Resort and their nuptials brought friends and family together from across the country, and gave them the gift of Maine (something that was important to both Ashley and Ryan).
Thank you, Ashley and Ryan, for inviting me to bear witness to the beginning of your life as husband and wife. May these images always bring you back.
