Fave Weddings - Ashley's Picks

Our girl Ashley, aka the sweetest most genuine photog sister around, lead shoots about half of our weddings each year. She picked her four faves from 2018 and we have the gorgeous highlights here!

Addie and Walker's wedding was classic perfection made better by the sweetest couple and the most adorable fur babies. Addie was gorgeous and so go with the flow the entire day. They both made the entire day so easy and truly a joy to photograph. 

Lucia and Michael were so much fun. The amount of joy that those two had was undeniable. Their senses of humor made the entire day so memorable. They never needed to be posed, just being always so open with their affection for one another! 

Blake and Jennie's wedding in Colorado Springs was a dream! The venue, flowers, and all the other details were a dream. Walking through Garden of the Gods was incredible and Jennie climbing up the rocks in her heels like it was no big deal will remain one of my favorite memories. 

Delaney and Josh's wedding went off without a hitch. Delaney was so amazingly prepared and made sure everything was organized and on schedule! We had so much fun riding around in the golf cart and hitting up so many gorgeous spots for romantics.”

Matthew + Kaya, a Paa-ko Ridge Wedding

In 2010, Matthew and Kaya met for the first time in Santa Rosa, California through a mutual friend and it was instantly love at first sight. These lovers found that they shared a passion for music, craft beer, and adventuring. Their love story continued as they moved from California to Nevada to Oregon while Kaya was still in college. They soon found their way to the ever charming Santa Fe, NM for new job opportunities and fell in love with the southwest’s breathtaking views and gorgeous sunsets. On a little trip back to Oregon in August of 2017, Matthew proposed at the beautiful Cannon Beach! Matthew and Kaya now live in our amazing state with their two cats Thor and Rollo and their sweet pup Kona, who made a guest appearance in their wedding!

We adored their late July wedding at Paa-ko Ridge Golf Club in Sandia Park, NM. Bringing lots of Southwestern flair, Kaya wore incredible cowboy boots under her classically elegant Casablanca Bridal gown and paired her entire look with a bold lipstick! To top off her amazing bridal details, Kaya included her grandmother’s vintage, hand-held mirror as her something old (giving us major feels). After their amazing little ceremony, these babes snuck off with us for some epic, on-the-edge-of-a-mountain romantics! We have so much love for these two and their adventurous souls, congrats babes!
