I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I'd believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be.
I love her and that is the beginning of everything. --F. Scott Fitzgerald
Last night Sam and I delivered Sabrina + Parker’s beautiful wedding at the Red Barn Farm, and can I just say I’m a little obsessed?!! Their wedding was one of the most intimate and emotional weddings we’ve been to. It kind of reminded us of our wedding back in 2015. Thankful for these two, and I’m praying that their marriage is full of love, happiness and chocolate 💗
Bopha + Alfredo has been dating for 8 whole years 😱! And next year August, they get to finally say “I do” to one another. Not only these two are insanely beautiful, they are sooooo sweet! Can’t wait for your big day loves! 💗
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas...
and a clean house 🙄 #tistheseason
I’ve learned so much from the Israelites wandering throughout Egypt. I’ve studied their habits and have marveled at how real and relevant the Bible is today just as it was then. For 40 years God’s people ate manna. A substance that’s name literally means “what is it?”. So hungry for nourishment, they choose to consume that which they didn’t know. Oh how I’ve been eating from the same plate. Finding soul filling amongst the inexplicable. Seasons of unknown are tough and scary and leave us asking some hard questions sometimes. But when we are inching along, even in the despair, we can choose to continue gathering manna. Nourishment. Truth. Trusting we are being led to lands flowing with milk and honey. I dream of Eden. Of His promises from the beginning to bring us back to our full glory. Lately I’ve felt as if I’ve been so adjusted to talking about it, my wrestle with the season, that I haven’t actually implemented proper steps to overcoming it. How numb we get to it all. Acknowledging the hurts and the desires, but leaving it there. Jesus doesn’t want to leave us here. He wants to catapult us forward into the bigger story. The promised land where the 40 years of manna finally makes sense. I’m fascinated by Jesus. His closeness and patience. His unending love and mercy. I crave more of it. I desperately need more of it. So we keep walking, manna in hand even when we don’t understand it. Soul filling amongst the inexplicable. Waiting patiently for the soft whispers, the treasures of darkness. It’s coming I feel it. #ontuesdayswespeaktruth
So not even a little ready to leave Hawaii! 😩🌴 But I’m stoked on all the shoots I’m coming home to, & the editing I have in cue soooo 😍
Finishing up edits for my last several weddings and sessions of 2017. I’ve still got quite a bit to work on, but reflecting on such a beautiful year.
I am busy working on @_kimw_ and @slackinhigh wedding day blog, but while you wait on that have you seen their first look / pre-wedding portrait session? It was epic 😍 link in bio! Would you consider doing an adventure session in your wedding attire the week of your wedding?
Today is our three year anniversary! I posted a few of my favorite wedding photos on my personal insta story...check it out for some throwbacks 🖤 @abbihearne
Heading off to Salisbury tomorrow to hang out with these two and it’s my last wedding of the year! It’s going to be good!
Today Austin & Emily are getting married!! (Stay tuned to my stories for some BTS today.)
This in-home engagement session is one of my personal favorites for so many reasons. Aside from their home looking like something straight out of a magazine, can you say hello to those beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows AND that view?! Win-win-win. #ashleywittmerphotography

Tuba ve Tarık’ın çekimi rüya gibi hatırladığım çekimlerimden biriydi.😌💕
These frigid temperatures take me back a few years when 3 of us decided to be insane and shoot in -5 degree weather. I’m not sure why except for the fact that we wanted snow, but man was it cold. I could barely hold my camera 😂. Clearly I haven’t done a repeat of this, but at least I look back and laugh because we did have a good time, despite wanting to curl up and die in the cold haha!
Next time I want snow photos, I’m not shooting in negative temps, that’s for sure. #fbf

On Tuesday, they celebrated 12 years of being together 👫❤️
Totally unrelated to this gorgeous couple; today I get to see my little brother graduate from Texas A&M university. To say that I'm a proud sister would be an understatement. I love you so much, Jake and I cannot wait to see what you do in your life. I know that you'll be successful in anything you decide to take on.
Picnic getaway with your besties 🌸

Ashlee + Mat // part 1 of 3
Ashlee and I have known each other since childhood, and it has been an absolutely humbling experience seeing her grow into such a beautiful person over the years.
Each time I photograph her, I see so much positive growth in both of us; her as a mother, and myself as a photographer. I took her engagement photos a couple years ago, her maternity photos for her second son last year, and her wedding photos this summer.
I am so proud of the women we have both become, and feel so personally honoured to be able to capture so many precious moments in her life. 💕
