Yesterday, I had the honor of photographing a very special wedding. I learned to knit in 2005, and the first project I wanted to take on once I learned was knitting socks. Lynn Anne at Twisted Yarns was so fantastic and patient as she taught me, and through the years she has been so supportive in so many ways. Ashley worked at the shop too at the time, and for as long as I can remember she has been dating Phillip.
It is always hard on a relationship to date over a long distance; Phillip is enlisted in the Navy and did a tour last year in Iraq. Not easy on his loved ones back in Houston.
So this spring when she told me that Ashley & Phillip were getting married – I was thrilled when she asked if I would photograph the wedding! It was such an honor to be a part of their special day, and a big thank you to Kelly Niemann for assisting me with it. Ashley was a stunning bride and Phillip was a charming groom. Everyone had a fabulous time at Shirley Acres, which took wonderful care of us all. What a beautiful, beautiful evening!
Ashley & Phillip return to Norfolk, Virginia soon and are planning a honeymoon later this summer.
More photos to come soon!
