Michael and Ashley celebrated their one year wedding anniversary this past week and I was so excited to be the one to take their Maui anniversary photos seeing is I photographed their wedding last year! The story of how I know these two is one of my favorites. I met Michael and Ashley last year through Michael’s sister, Jenna, who was a friend of mine online. She referred me to them for their wedding and next thing I knew I was on a plane to Maui to photograph the biggest day of their lives, which just so happened to be the most STUNNING day! You may remember seeing their full rainy wedding over on my blog, or even when it was featured on Style Me Pretty!
Fast forward a year, and I booked another wedding in Maui because the couple saw Michael and Ashley’s wedding on Style Me Pretty! I contacted them to get together while I was there and turns out, they were shooting the wedding with me! They are incredible videographers over at Hue Films and did all the video for this years wedding. Best part, we didn’t even refer each other! What are the odds? I absolutely love the community aspect of my job and how things knit together like that! Michael and Ashley opened up their home to me last week while I was there and we had the best time exploring, laughing, and eating the most delicious food! It was the greatest honor to be able to spend more time with them, document the continuation of their love story, and just do life with them for the week. I love when my clients turn best friends and I am so thankful for our time together in Maui this past week! Congrats on one year of marriage Michael and Ashley! I can’t wait to celebrate all the years to come, you two are the absolute best!
