Shawn & Ashley | Engagement
August 24, 2015
Here we go. Let me just start by saying that I LOVED everything about this session. When Ashley first contacted me about doing an engagement session with a woodsy feel, I knew it was going to be amazing.
Ashley and Shawn met while they were attending LSSU. They lived in the same dorms and saw each other around but weren't yet friends. Shawn always saw Ashley around campus and told his friends that he wish he knew *the girl with the smile*. Late into their junior year they started talking at a social gathering where Shawn asked *the girl with the smile* out on a date. The rest is history.
They both graduated in 2013, Ashley with a degree in biochemistry and Shawn with a degree in fire science. Shawn is currently a firefighter in Dearborn and Ashley is attending grad school at Indiana University to be an optometrist.
You're probably wondering why they had their engagement session in the EUP. Well, that first date that Shawn asked Ashley on was to watch the Northern Lights at Mission Hill. From what Ashley remembers it was cloudy, but it didn't stop them from talking until 3am.
Shawn and Ashley were so much fun to work with and there were so many aspects of their session that tied in with their interests. From starting their session off where they had their first date, to the firefighter building a campfire, to getting *family* pictures with their beautiful dog, Cola. They also want to incorporate ferns into their wedding, hence, the ferns :)
Shawn and Ashley are planning a 2017 wedding at Houghton Lake.
