I met Ashley and Brian through Bernie, Ashley’s brother. Bernie and I have been friends for a while. Bernie had insisted that Ashley and Brian hire me for their wedding so they invited me over for dinner one night. Dion’s was on the menu (uhmm… YES!). We had our pizza and I showed them my portfolio. I remember being really really hungry so to say I was ecstatic about Dion’s, would be an understatement. It was also the dead of winter so it was absolutely freezing outside so any warm place was a blessing! I remember leaving that dinner feeling really good about the situation.
A few days later, I got the great news that I was hired for the event! Immediately, we had big plans for the engagement shoot. Ashley wanted to surprise Brian with a shoot at the Pit. Her mom, Dina, had set up the entire event for the three of us. The engagement shoot went smoothly. Brian even brought a basketball and took the opportunity to shoot some hoops while we were there.
Fast forward to their wedding..
Albuquerque was in the middle of it’s monsoon season so we were all really nervous about the wedding day. It had rained a lot the night before and drizzled lightly the morning of.. but after the wedding ceremony the sun came out hight and bright. I was so relieved! We went off to the bridal shoot and had a blast. It was a really fun party to be hanging out with. They even invited me to drink with them in celebration.. I would’ve said yes.. but I was driving AND working. 😦 Boo.. haha.
Well, here are a few photographs from the day.
