wedding: ashley + sam

What's up friends!? 
It's November!! I can't believe it. How is everyone? 
I am SO over Halloween it's not even funny.  I can't think of anything better than the Holidays coming up and being with the people I love the most. We get to go home to Michigan soon! yay! 
Anyway, things are moving right along here for us Reeds. We have been shooting some AMAZING weddings and meeting some INCREDIBLE couples!! This one is for sure one of our fav's. 

Ashley and Sam were married at her parent's home in Vista, Ca on a gorgeous fall day (for California).
They are from Bend, Oregon and we love that so much because we are obsessed with Oregon and anyone who lives there. The couple met at a dog beach!! How funny is that?! It's a total movie. They are full of laughter, love and passion and it shines through each image we captured on this amazing day. 
Ashley is a beautiful person, obviously on the outside but I got to really see her heart and character as well, and that is even more beautiful. And Sam is just such a stud. I mean the guy has the most giant heart, he has been all over the world helping people and he has a passion for loving the unloved. It is inspiring! We feel SO honored to have been asked by this couple to document their wedding not only because they are SO RAD but also because their entire family is full of amazing artists! It's intimidating sometimes!!! They have the coolest house filled with all kinds of art that each family member has created. It was such a fun evening! 

Ashley and Sam... We LOVE you guys!! We are SO thankful to know you and we have to stay friends always. We felt a connection within seconds of meeting you! We LOVED your wedding; it was perfect and you both inspire us. We hope this little sneak peak gets you pumped for what's to come. Your images are the memories you will forever have from the day you began your new life together. We know that you will conquer the world. Enjoy and cheers!!
