I met Ashley when I photographed our mutual fave Rebecca’s engagement pictures at Oxford Exchange here in Tampa. She came along to help carry things and arrange Becca’s skirt and drink coffee and make great remarks in the background. She was wonderful. I saw her again at Rebecca and Zach’s wedding a few months later and so of COURSE when she asked if I could shoot her engagement pictures I was thrilled.

Buddy Brew is a place I go quite often, because when you work from your laptop you get to move around and people watching is my favorite form of procrastination. Ashley and I met up there to plan the shoot and she said they wanted to do their pictures AT Buddy Brew, so the day of, I sat on my computer and worked there for HOURS eagerly awaiting our appointed time.

These two laughed with me so much, and I took them at their word that they were down for anything.

“LAY DOWN RIGHT THERE!” led to some of my favorite shots I’ve ever taken.

Also I made this handy dandy gif. Please enjoy.

You guys rock. Also you have snazzy apple watches. *praise hands emoji*
