It was an honor to capture the love between Ashley, Landon and their beautiful daughter Hadley during their outdoor engagement session in the country. Landon and Ashley live on a scenic acreage, so we had plenty of gorgeous landscape to choose from for the session. We even used some locations on the neighbor’s property – whom neither Ashley nor Landon has ever met! It gave us a good chuckle and some excitement to go along with the day. The couple’s daughter Hadley was such a delight to photograph, and is obviously going to be a shining star on the big day when her Mom and Dad say “I do”. She was even there with Landon during the proposal!
Ashley and Landon have known each other for most of their lives because their parents are good friends, but the stars aligned and the couple fell in love in 2011. After adding two fur babies, Ammo and Linc, to their family and welcoming their adorable baby girl Hadley to the family in 2016 Landon decided that it was time to seal the deal and make Ashley officially his forever.
In true country fashion, the proposal involved a 6-mile quad ride down a cut line. Ashley wasn’t too thrilled with the idea of a long trip like this, but since Landon can be quite persuasive she ended up bumping along happily looking at scenery and enjoying the fresh air. They stopped at a river valley along the way and to Ashley’s surprise she turned around and saw the love of her life and their daughter down on one knee! They still joke about who cried most and whether or not Ashley actually said yes…
It was a pleasure to capture these memories for this awesome family, and I cannot wait to do the same on their wedding day.
