Ashley & Joey
Gig Harbor, WA
Ashley and Joey planned an incredible wedding set in one of our favorite places in Gig Harbor, right downtown across from our studio! Lindsay and I showed up the day of the wedding and checked in with the Bride and Groom. Ashley was getting ready in a space above the venue, overlooking Gig Harbor, Joey was getting ready with his guys on one of the boats in the marina. This was really fun, as it kept the couple separated and we were able to get a wide array of images just by walking a short distance.
Right off the bat, we loved Ashley’s dress! We see a lot of wedding dresses, and we were excited to photograph something a little different. Everything about Ashley & Joey’s day was so personalized, from the floral decor that included hops, to the BBQ sauce they were giving away as favors, even the catering, which was done by Ashley’s step dad (and was SO good!) There was also a candy bar, a popcorn bar, and tons of photos of Ashley and Joey on all of the tables. I loved this touch because I was able to walk around and get a glimpse of their relationship and how it has evolved over the years, and then spend some time with them on the most important day of their lives! It is definitely the coolest part of our job. Looking back at this wedding, Lindsay and I had a blast. The bridal party had us laughing all day, and the dance party was one we won’t forget either.
However, the absolute greatest part of the day was when we took these two lovebirds to a local park and were able to get some incredible images! Ashley’s dress in these woods was dreamy and romantic, and the light that evening was gorgeous. Ashley and Joey were really good sports and chased the sunset with us, risking their lives to stand in the middle of the road for a beautiful sunset shot 🙂
Check out the photos from this awesome day, and leave your comments and congratulations for the happy couple below!
