Ashley says "I don't!"

Ashley says I don't because she's not a real bride! She's actually a high school senior that was nice enough to do a little modeling for me. I met her when she tagged along on her boyfriend's senior portrait shoot a few weeks earlier. I thought she was very striking so I kept her in mind for potential future modeling opportunities. When I needed a model for a senior portrait ad, Ashley was the first person I thought of. Meanwhile, a couple of my photographer friends needed a "bride" for a photo shoot at popular local wedding venue, Shove Chapel, so we killed two birds with one stone: on the same day, Ashley posed for senior portraits and bridals. She was a great model and a good sport too (especially when one of her school acquaintances randomly showed up at Shove Chapel and spied Ashley all dolled up like a bride - imagine the gossip at school the next day!).

It was a lot of work and a lot of fun, and we got some great images. Ashley, thanks for your time and energy. You're a gorgeous girl!

Here are some of the senior portraits we did

And here are some of the bridals
