Ashley + Breck: Burlington, Iowa

It was a classic, hot, sunny, no wind type of summer day in July. I arrived to the church early to get all of the photographs before the ceremony as we had discussed. The calm and quiet energy throughout was almost unreal. Breck and Ashley’s dad were in the back getting ready. Ashley and the girls were up front making final touches. I have known Ashley for a few years now and I was very excited to not only be there for her wedding but to capture it for her. Ashley is the type of sweet girl that is a humble beauty, a gorgeous girl on the inside and out. Breck is handsome, polite and oozes a maturity than most have at his age. Together, they are obvious best friends with a very strong love. I was very honored to be a part of the day. Thank You Ashley + Breck for having me. Here are my favorite things from your wedding.

  1. Your young love. You wear your love, friendship, faith, commitment and heart on your sleeves and it is admirable. Although young, you are confident, responsible and mature for your age and a wonderful example of a loving couple.
  2. Your loving families. You have two very strong foundations on both sides of your family. Through that, you will undoubtedly grow a strong family of your own.
  3. All of the fun, easy-going gorgeous location shots!
  4. The sweet, tender and emotional dance shots with your parents at the reception.
