When I first met Ashley and Nico during our initial consult, Ashley shared that she knew I’d be their wedding photographer after seeing photos of my Australian Shepherd, Willow, on Instagram! Ashley and Nico have two sweet puppies themselves, one of which is part Aussie. I knew I had found my people when I learned that they were dog lovers, too!
The three of us met up at the gorgeous Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown, NJ a couple of weeks ago for our engagement session. Ashley and Nico are getting married in December of 2021 and wanted a wintery and English garden feel for their engagement photos. Deep Cut Gardens has so many magical, storybook worthy locations and it served as the most perfect backdrop for their session! Plus, can we talk about Ashley’s vintage 1940’s red dress?! She looked so beautiful, and I love how it added to the holiday feel.
We finished our session at Thompson Park with Ashley and Nico’s dogs, Solomon and Olive. They came dressed in their holiday best and ready for their close ups! Some of my favorite photos from their session are the ones of Ashley and Nico with their puppies in front of the glowing Christmas lights.
Congratulations, Ashley and Nico! I cannot wait for your wedding day!!! Enjoy some of my favorites below.
