Ashley and Chris provided lots of laughs for their photographer and guests on their wedding day. Their Ohio wedding had a navy and orange theme and they just had an absolute blast making faces at each other and telling inside jokes. The best part of it all was that the duo was down for doing anything when it came to photography. We love a fun couple and Ashley and Chris certainly didn’t disappoint!
Ashley + Chris
From the Photographer: SUPER FUN and FANTASTIC couple who I absolutely fell in love with. They are a truly special and quirky funny couple. Always making faces and inside jokes, which you can see throughout their images, as they didn’t hold back just because it was their wedding day! From the start, I knew this was going to be a super fun and exciting event when we brainstormed together before the wedding to talk about their vision for the images they wanted to capture. At this meeting we came up with some crazy funny Photoshop ideas that we could photograph on their wedding day. They really made it so easy and such a blast to work with them. The couple was down for WHATEVER and would jump into whatever position whether wild and crazy or a serious/romantic moment. They have a wiener dog named Charlie (of course they do!), which we used in one of the outrageous Photo shopped images. The gigantic note that Ashley read was included in a card from her hubby to be right before the ceremony. Hilarious!!!! Chris’s hobby is painting so he designed and painted all the centerpieces. After the reception they were taken apart and given away as gifts to the guests. He also designed all the wedding printed materials such as invitations, escort cards and programs. Sadly, Ashley’s dad is passed away so for her father/daughter dance her whole immediate family got up and danced together to a Phil Colin’s song. It was really sweet and it made me cry!!! And on the wedding day she wore a customized bracelet with a charm that has her dad’s finger prints on it. During the reception, they had a crazy dollar dance so they could ensure that they spend time with each guest and this was also a perfect opportunity for one of her brides maids to “made-it-rain”. Then after a night of serious partying, the couple they hired Zombie Dogz, a local food truck that specializes in gourmet hot dogs for a late night snack. What a great event and a great couple!!!!! They truly contributed to so much to the creative process and helped to make their images so much more their own. But they also trusted me to bring my flair as well, and were open to “trying” stuff to see what worked. The best example is that on the way to their reception I saw this beautiful hill behind the hotel. It was quite a climb, but I saw some beautiful images that could be made. They were totally on board with it. So we hiked all the way up this mini mountain and they now say that those images are their favorites from the whole day. It was worth the extra time and energy.
