ashley & rick {engaged}

The first time I met Ashley and Rick, I knew that this was a couple that I wanted to get to know better!! The both of them are so kind and soooo fun. And they are both very intelligent - Ashley is currently in her final year of grad school (while planning a wedding!!) and Rick just got a sweet promotion at his job. Between their personalities, intellect, and love for each other, they truly are a delight to be around. Ashley & Rick are getting married next July, but we did their engagement shoot just a couple weeks ago in Holland, MI. We had a blast walking around the campus of Hope College and also on the beach of Lake Michigan. The two of them were so adorable I could've shot them all day - with a camera, of course! :) I'm so excited to have the opportunity to be apart of their wedding celebration!

Ashley & Rick - it was soooo fun spending the evening with the two of you. It was hard to narrow down images for this post - they were all so beautiful! Good luck with the rest of your planning! I can't wait for your wedding! Enjoy your preview!

Rick's family symbol is an anchor... and they love boating - perfect!

...but a quick t-shirt switch brought out Ashley's true colors. I think I know who she's going to be cheering for on Tuesday night! GO TIGERS!!
