Ashlie + Monique

Ashlie and Monique... oh what absolute gems they are!

Ashlie first contacted me through a mutual friend. She emailed me, and wanted me to photograph an elopement. We exchanged emails back and forth for a few weeks or so and she ended up becoming friends to us rather than clients. This was an apparent quality that Ashlie and Monique both have; befriending strangers due to their unending kindness.

At first, we had planned an elopement somewhere in the North Cascades, somewhere in the mountains to show the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. A few weeks later, Ashlie gave me a call and said, "Hey, we're going to have our honeymoon in Paris... Why don't we just get there days earlier, Mo and I are thinking about getting eloped there?" My jaw dropped to the floor and without hesitation I said, "HECK YES."

The thing that Ashlie and Mo always mention is how much they want me as their photographer. As a photographer, they are the dream clients; couples that want you for your style and would want no one else. I am super thankful for them.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite moments from that day. Hope you like it!

 

 The lights on the Eiffel Tower started to sparkle during Ashlie's vow to Monique. The timing was impeccable and what an unforgettable moment that was.
