Ashley and Garrett Bridals and Groomals

Well, we recently celebrated the romance of Ashley and Garrett with an adorable autumn engagement session at Gardner Village.

I just got to do even more with them by doing a “bridals and groomals” (to coin a new term) wedding photography mini-session.  Admittedly, still heavily focused on the bride — but with the added bonus of a groom in a few choice shots.

And it was just as fun and delightful as the engagement session!

Both Ashley and Garrett are models, by the way, and even met and started dating through the modeling and acting world.  (The first shoot I ever did with these two featured them and other models out on the water in sailboats.)  They have very sophisticated tastes like opera and art, but at the same time they love hiking and camping and adventuring.

I liked that we had the opportunity to capture both facets of their interests in the same session.  They are both dressed beautifully, with grace and style, but we put them in a great natural setting.  They’re such a wonderful mix of classic and modern, and I wanted to capture that in their photoshoot.

We start with the ever-fabulous Ashley!

And yes, she did briefly splash around in the water.  🙂

And then Garrett joined her.  He was watching as we played around at the beginning of the session, and her smiles were really all for him, not me.  When he got in the photos, they were both giggling and so happy together.  I really love these two.  They are so adorably in love.
