We have been blessed to have known Nick and Ashley since before they even officially started dating! Our story with them actually begins in 2007, during a photo shoot with Ashley, a local model, who told us about her friend Nick who was going through a rough time. Ashley wanted to surprise Nick, who was also a model, with a photo shoot and they met up with us for a fun shoot at the beach. They hadn't even started dating yet but I had a feeling...and am normally pretty intuitive about things like this. ;) A few months later Nick and Ashley came to meet us for another shoot for some ideas that we had, and they had only recently started officially dating and I mentioned how cool it would be if we shot their wedding some day (which I think made Nick's jaw drop since they were both so young and it was all so new)... Nick and Ash became close very quickly and attended the same college and they just knew... when you know, you know, right? :) Nick proposed to Ashley and a year later on August 14 we were shooting their wedding in beautiful Danversport, MA. We have gotten to know Nick and Ashley pretty well through various photo shoots (two engagement shoots and other modeling they've done for us) and they are such sweet, loving people. They are both young and very close to their families, so their wedding day was a day filled with emotion. Nick recently established a charity, Cling, in memory of his mother which raises funds for basic needs for children in developing countries. Please check out their website to learn more.
Nick and Ashley, we are so grateful for your friendships and to have been able to document your relationship from the beginning. We look forward to continuing to document your family as it grows one day too. The images below are from Ashley and Nick's wedding day and an additional After Session we did with them a few weeks after their wedding.
