Ashley + Matt (Part I)

While traveling this July, I had the opportunity to meet up with my childhood friend Ashley, and her fiancé, Matt in Oklahoma City. The two are getting married in September, and I cannot WAIT to photograph their beautiful day.

I met Ashley in fourth grade when we both happen to attend a small-town elementary school near Altus, Oklahoma. Ashley was in Mrs. Warmbier's class, and I was in Mrs. Pryor's, but we played together every day at PE and on the playground. We have kept up with each other through the years via social media. Ashley is one of the sweetest souls I have ever met, and is hilariously funny and witty. Her first date with Matt was at Cattleman's Steakhouse in the Stockyards City area of Oklahoma City, so naturally, that's where we did their engagement photo session. These two were troopers, meeting me in the wee hours of the morning in an attempt to avoid the Oklahoma heat and humidity. It was still hot, but these two didn't complain. They walked all over, and we got some of the best backdrops in the city. Check it out:
