When Ashleigh laughed at Brady's Harry Potter reference during the engagement shoot, I knew for sure he had found the one. Alex and I had the pleasure of shooting our old friend Brady's engagement photos last week. I love brainstorming shoots that are unique to the couple. Learning Brady and Ashleigh's story gave me a chance to go creatively crazy and it was SO worth it!!
Brady and Ashleigh both went to school at UF, so we incorporated that into our day. While they didn't meet there, any Gator knows that UF is an important part of your history.
They DID meet on their first date when they went to the movies and saw Gravity. Then, when Brady proposed, he sent Ashleigh on a little scavenger hunt. The beginning of that hunt was an adorable Eve doll from Wall-E. When Ashleigh finally met up with Brady, he was holding Wall-E and a stunning blue diamond ring. When I heard all of this, after tearing up, I knew we had to shoot in a planetarium to pay homage to that important part of their story. A HUGE thank you to James Albury at Kika Silva Pla Planetarium for being so patient and accommodating. Even more amazing!? - James set up the sky in the planetarium to look exactly as it will the MOMENT Ashleigh is walking down the aisle on October 4th!!
Congratulations, Ashleigh and Brady!!! May your love be as endless as the stars in the sky!
