Do you know this year many of my friends children will be getting married. Does that make me older or wiser! I prefer wiser and lets ad more experienced. I have been photographing weddings for a very long time, long time, ha! I will say honestly, I mean with all honestly I still love it, if not more then when I started. Still growing, experimenting, learning. This lovely couple is Ashley and Keafer. Ashley was about 5 when I first met her. Her parents were my first neighbors when I moved to Arizona in 1992. We became fast friends, Ashley's parents Don and Martie and I instantly. I loved living next door to them. Ashley use to babysit my boys too. I remember feeling so honored to photograph Ashley's senior pictures, man she is a beauty! Now I get to photograph her wedding in December. I really enjoyed getting to know Keafer while photographing their engagement pictures. They seem to complement each other perfectly.I would like to share with you Ashley and Keafer's love story! They met through Keafers mom a little over 4 years ago. Keafer was living in Florida serving in the Navy, and came home on leave for Thanksgiving. Ashley met up with Keafer the night before he was supposed to go back to Florida. They hit it off from the start, but with the lomg distance thing they just stayed friends. Ashley and Keafer kept in touch via Facebook for 2 years and when he would come home on leave, they would meet up for lunch with his family. After serving his 6 years, Keafer came home to pursue his degree in Exercise Science. Ashley had asked Keafer to train her at the gym, and after 2 months their friendship turned into dating. They just celebrated their 2 year anniversary in Oct 2017. Keafer proposed to Ashley on Aug 18, 2017 in Las Vegas, one week before her 30th Birthday!
