I could go on and on and on about how wonderful Ashley and Justin are, but I think it is obvious just from their pictures. When I began working for Kansas Athletics last May, Ashley was there for me 100% from the beginning. She always made sure I was doing okay, and she always made sure to include me...she has always been so supportive and when she asked me to photograph her wedding I was honored.
We have been counting down the days to the wedding in our office for months, and I can't believe the day has already come and gone. Everything was better than expected, and Ashley and Justin turned a dark and rainy day into a wonderful one :) They were GREAT sports about the rain, and were so cool about finding indoor locations to shoot their formal pictures.
After a few minutes photographing in the rain, we realized we needed to go inside. We quickly brainstormed and realized that the best place to go was back to our office at Allen Fieldhouse. As you might remember from their engagement session last summer, Ashley and Justin both have strong KU ties. Ashley was a cheerleader while she attended KU. A quick google search led me to this picture (sorry, Ash...I had to) of her in her glory days :)

Justin on the other hand was a very accomplished football player for the University of Kansas, and was a key player on the 2008 Orange Bowl Champions team. And just for fun...

So, taking their wedding pictures at Allen Fieldhouse seemed like a perfect fit. I had a wonderful time photographing their wedding, and I hope you enjoy your preview! Congratulations to you in your new journey!
