I just adore these two!
I first met Ashley at our local Tuesday’s Together group, and am so grateful I did! Ashley is not only a fantastic creative entrepreneur (she’s the owner/HR consultant at Sprout HR- check her out!), but also an amazing friend and supporter. She has been my little personal cheerleader since we met and I cant tell you how thankful I am for her encouragement and words of advice! Ashley asked me to take photos of her and her husband, Mike, for their anniversary and of course, I was giddy with excitement!
Ashley and Mike recently celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary this Fall, and what a better way to kick off their next year together then to hike to a waterfall! These two are truly adventurous souls- they love exploring new places whether it be cute towns nearby, local restaurants/food or new places to hike. They have an affinity for waterfalls and are also pretty much down for anything (as I found out at our session)!
We met up on a cold, Wednesday evening just over the TN/NC line at Elk River Falls. It was the first frigid evening this year, but you really can’t tell, because these two cozied right up! We explored the trail and the top of the falls, and laughed the entire time! When we finally made it to the bottom of the falls, I asked Mike and Ashley to stand precariously on a rock that was surrounded by water. They didn’t even blink an eye and before I knew it, Mike had helped Ashley jump from rock to rock to get there! We ended our evening at the top of the falls for a few more photos before we lost light to the winter sunset and clouds.
Mike and Ashley- thank you for asking me to help celebrate your anniversary! You two are an amazing pair and I love your humor together. Wishing you many more years of adventures together!
