It was right before classes started at Alabama and Ashley and Chase were both in Tuscaloosa. The excitement of the semester starting and getting all settled in was overwhelming. As college kids do, they wanted to meet new people and find friends, so they both took to the same dating app. It wasn’t long before they matched online and struck up a conversation. They quickly bonded over their shared sense of humor and interests and as Ashley says, once they started talking they just never stopped!
They met that August and stayed friends until October when neither of them could deny their chemistry any longer. Ever since they’ve been together and have grown so much as a couple. Now, here they are years later starting their lives together post-college in Huntsville! They’ve bought a home together, and just brought home an adorable puppy, Ivy here. It just made so much sense for them to celebrate this stage of their lives by having their engagement photos done in Huntsville at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens.
Ashley & Chase are such a fun and hilarious couple. They’re clearly still the best of friends! The whole time we were with them for their engagement session they were cracking each other up and making each other smile. It was really just so fun watching them be together.
The best part of the entire story here is that Ashley had actually interviewed for a job at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. She was waiting to hear back when we shot their photos, and actually ended up finding out the next day she got the job. Now she gets to walk around the Huntsville Botanical Gardens on lunch breaks and gets to enjoy it’s scenery on a regular basis. How fun?!
To say we’re excited for their wedding day to get here is a major understatement. They’re getting married next May at the beautiful Hamilton Place at Pursell Farms! They’ve got such a fabulous vision for their wedding day with lots of blush peonies and garden roses. It all sounds like a photographer’s dream day and with these two we know it’s sure to be amazing!
