Ashley & Tyler are one of the sweetest couples.  They have a heart of gold, and so do their families. I was so lucky they chose me to be their wedding photographer for their St Francis of Assisi and Craig Ranch wedding.

I did their engagements last fall at the Cotton Mill.  I always get so excited when my couples want something a little ‘different’.  =)  I swear, these two do not take a bad picture…  Their love is so genuine and heartfelt, and that really comes across in all of the images.

Then, I did Ashley’s bridals at the Dallas Arboretum.  Her sweet mom, Cindy, was with us and they were just so happy.  Now, I never expect my clients to love every image… but after I published her gallery, I got a message from Ashley that they loved EVERY SINGLE PICTURE.  Wow.  I am so glad I could make them happy.

On their wedding day, I was able to get some getting ready pictures at the house that Ashley & Tyler just purchased.  So beautiful.  The day was gorgeous, the flowers were A.MAZ.ING (thank you, Haute Floral), and Ashley was stunning!  She could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day!

Ashley had a very sweet “first look” with her father.  They both were full of such emotion.  What a wonderful experience.

As soon as I released everyone to go to the reception, one of the guys had an idea to attempt a jumping shot.  We did three (not including the practice round…)  =)

This is Craig Ranch.  Holy moly this place was BEAUTIFUL.  It had the exact right touch of classy country with all the windows and woodwork.  Oh, and Christina, the coordinator is soooo organized, resourceful, and on top of things.  She is the best on site coordinator I have ever had the privilege of working with.

Look at these flowers… aren’t they unreal?!?  Kristen, owner of Haute Floral did an AMAZING job.

These two have so much love for one another, and it was evident every single time he looked at her and she smiled at him.  These two are bound for greatness.

Ashley & Tyler’s videographers, Brad & Monica, did something so neat…  They created a video for them covering getting ready through the first dance, and they were able to see it at the end of the reception.  Here are their reactions to their awesome video…Catholic St Francis of Assisi and Craig Ranch wedding using the color pink Catholic St Francis of Assisi and Craig Ranch wedding using the color pink Catholic St Francis of Assisi and Craig Ranch wedding using the color pink

Ok, so a word to the wise…  lenses have a tendency to fog up from time to time RIGHT before the exit.  I am so glad Kaitlynn was there 10 minutes earlier, so her lens had time to defog.  Still got a fun exit shot… it is pretty dreamy looking  =)Catholic St Francis of Assisi and Craig Ranch wedding using the color pink

Ashley & Tyler, I see a LOT of couples get married and I can safely say that you two have something so special.  Your love for each other is beautiful, and I cannot wait to see where this journey takes you.  I wish for you all the best this world has to offer.
