Ashley and Jason found me through WeddingWire! They are the first couple that I've been fortunate to photograph who didn't already know me beforehand. They had been together for 6 years already and were super comfortable around each other. Their interactions are absolutely adorable and Jason and Ashley couldn't stop smiling at each other the whole time.
Ashley and Jason actually already had an engagement shoot; however, I include a complimentary engagement shoot with each one of my wedding packages to ensure that I get to meet the couple beforehand and understand their dynamic so that I am better prepared to photograph their wedding.
A lil' about the Location
Ashley loves greenery and her ideal location is somewhere that looks like it's in the forest. Unfortunately, most of the spots I checked out were either dried up or needed a permit. I was at Arroyo Pescadero Park and almost at the point of giving up when I saw this location from the main trail. I took out my phone, dropped a pin on Google Maps, then drove over to this spot. Believe it or not, it's just on the side of the road in a residential area!
A lil' surprise
The best part about the location though, were the yellow flowers. The spot looked nice from the street, but as soon as we started walking through the flowers, we knew that this location was golden. There were so many flowers blooming and the stems were so tall, it felt like we had transported locations.
Ashley and Jason were an absolute joy to work with. I'm so happy we did an engagement shoot together prior to their wedding. Keep an eye out for their wedding day blog!
