Ashley Strong Photography : Sabrina and Ivan's Garden Wedding

Hello new friend! Ashley Strong Smith here, the oh-so grateful photographer and owner of Ashley Strong Photography! I’m someone captivated by life and the experiences that occur within those moments. Deep within my soul lives the want, the need, the passion, for human connection. Those intimate moments where a friendship, a relationship forms. Me, seeing, honoring, documenting you, as you. The beauty within your uniqueness.

Being inspired by the Author, Dave Eggers in one of my all time favorite books, “What is the What.” He tells a story. The story of Valentino Achak Deng, a young man, once a refugee from Sudan, now a citizen of the United States. His vantage point, well it was told from the voice of Valentino Achak Deng in what would be the climax of this story, the book. Eggers painted the pictures so vibrantly, so passionately. A story. A true story within this life time lives by another soul, yet described as his own.

I am drawn, connected to, put on this earth to tell stories. That story of you. My vantage point is this moment. Where you are in your life. Right here, right now. An engagement. Your wedding. An anniversary. Documenting your new or ever growing family. That business you just started,  or the personal triumph of you being the best possible version of you!

This wedding below, her smile, it says it all as its the prefect representation of the blissful wedding day these two intertwined souls shared! Their day was so peacefully calm, smooth, stunningly beautiful and filled with so much laughter. You see, I've had the honor of working with these two souls utilizing my tool of a camera during both their engagement and business portraits (they're the extremely talented and passionate duo behind Arc of life Chiropractic) and as a result, we've formed a joyous friendship and trust. So, as their wedding day approached, it just all felt natural and vibrantly meant-to-be. Watching Ivan prepare to see Sabrina, Sabrina to see Ivan, the support of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the luscious backdrop of vibrant blooming flowers and greenery, the appreciative family. It was all quite simply, perfect!
