Ashley and Brian Smith - June 5th, 2009

I LOVE weddings...they never get old...each one has a special place in my heart. When I arrive at the house to start taking pictures I looked at Ashley and asked, "How are you doing?" She replied, "I feel amazing! Today I'm marrying my soul mate!" She was beaming and I knew at that moment it was going to be easy to capture the love between them.

Here's some detail shots we got before they got to see each other:
