Engaged | Travis +Ashley | Ravens Roost VA
Where do I even begin with this one?! Ashley and I met at the dental office her and I both worked at about 2 years ago. Right away I felt at ease around her - probably because she is so down to earth and real! She listened to any problem I might be having, and was very open with her own past relationship struggles. This will be a second marriage for both her and Travis. Listening to what they both have had to overcome and how extremely worth it everything has been to reconnect and fall in love has been an inspiring and hope-filled story to listen to. It is also so obvious to me and everyone else how well Ashley and Travis compliment each other and really bring out the best in one another!
When Ashley reached out to me about photographing their January wedding, I was over the moon excited! I also felt a bit nervous! I always want to do my best work, but that desire is that much more when it’s someone you are friends with. After tossing around several engagement photo locations, we all agreed that Ravens Roost would be perfect! You get the gorgeous mountain view and the Shenandoah Valley without having to hike an hour up-hill. This was especially welcomed by all because we happened to pick the hottest day of 2019 for their session! Thankfully, not only are Ashley and Travis troopers, but being up on the mountain cooled the air by a good 10 degrees! We actually started off by Three Ridges Overlook, where Travis proposed to Ashley. They even sported their favourite football team jerseys, and rivalry was kept to a minimum! Ha!
These two absolutely ROCKED their photos and I am so very excited for their wedding in Staunton VA come this winter. I told them several times, but I think Mother Nature will owe us a beautiful winter wonderland wedding after the heat it threw at us this day!
