Hey friends! It has been forever and a day since I blogged last. I promise I am still here- alive and well!  I have been super busy keeping up with sessions, editing, social media, answering emails, etc. since my maternity leave so I have unfortunalty neglected my blog... But my neglecting ends today!  AND I will be catching up on blogging over the next few weeks! :) 

Have you ever seen a couple and just instantly knew they were meant for each other? Well, this was how it was when I first met Katie and Matt. They are both such kind and genuine people. Their love for each other shows through the way he looks at her and how she laughs with him. I am so happy that I have gotten to know Katie and Matt through their wedding planning process. What an honor it is to get to capture their love story and what fun it will be to witness and capture the start of their lives together later this year!

Liz + Colt | Engagement http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2018/4/liz-colt-engagement "And I know that I can't ever tell you enough
That all I need in this life is your crazy love
If I never get to see the Northern lights
Or if I never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night
Oh if all I got is your hand in my hand
Baby I could die a happy man yeah"

 

I couldn't have asked for a better session before I went on maternity leave! It was a beautiful evening with no wind, lots of warm light and two hearts who love each other so much! It was so great to get to know Liz and Colt during their session and I am so excited about their wedding at Stone Hill Barn this summer! <3

Emily + Kevin | Engagement | Winfield, KS http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2018/1/emily-kevin-engagement "I'm so in love with you
And I hope you know
Darling your love is more than worth its weight in gold."

One of my favorite parts about being a photographer (if you follow this blog, you know what's coming next) is witnessing such beautiful love between couples and bringing that love to life through photographs. Emily and Kevin were so much fun to work with and I enjoyed getting to know the two of them, hearing their love story, and chatting away about their wedding day plans. I am so excited to capture their big day later this Spring! <3

Creed Wedding | Barns at Timber Creek | Winfield, KS http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2017/12/creed-wedding "And we're having such a good time together, and it's only just begun
My heart's never smiled so hard, baby, loving you is fun

This ol' heart's never smiled so hard
Lovin' you is fun
Yeah it's, fun
Yeah it's, fun
Lovin' you is fun"

...

Samantha and Cody's fall wedding at The Barns at Timber Creek was absolutely stunning. Samm and Cody are such a fun couple and their entire wedding day was filled with joy as they celebrated their marriage with their family and friends. We had so much fun capturing every part of their day! Not a single detail was overlooked and we had the most gorgeous glowy light for the bride and groom portraits at sunset.  

...

Whether you celebrated near or far, leave a note at the bottom of this post for the newlyweds to read- they will have so much fun hearing from you! :)

Ledbetter Wedding | Wellington, KS http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2017/11/ledbetter "Tomorrow morning if you wake up,
And the sun does not appear
I, I will be here

If in the dark we lose sight of love,
Hold my hand, and have no fear
Cause I, I will be here."

...

From their sweet first look to their grand exit, The Ledbetter Wedding was perfect in every way. I have enjoyed getting to know Austin and Sheridan and admire their faithful and servant hearts so much. The love that these two share is so pure and genuine.

Austin & Sheridan, thank you again for allowing me to capture these memories for you. I hope you cherish these photos forever. <3

Kyndra + Jonah | Engagement http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2017/11/kyndra-jonah-engagement Kyndra and Jonah met each other their freshman year in college. It was pretty much love at first sight and you couldn't put two better hearts together. These two have laughs that are contagious and are a couple of the most genuine people you will ever meet. It doesn't get any better than these two, you guys! What a fun time it was catching up with two wonderful friends and talking about the plans they have as they start the next chapter of their lives together next June! <3 I can't wait!

Emily and Gage's wedding was nothing short of perfection.

Gage and Emily's love for each other is something that I have watched grow over the years and I am so excited that they are finally married! <3

Sheridan + Austin | Engagement http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2017/8/sheridan-austin-engagement  

"Every little thing that you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do, oh
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you"

...

Sheridan and Austin's engagement session turned out perfectly but was almost cancelled due to a surprise storm that popped up out of nowhere the evening of their session. I had already made the drive to Wichita and was looking forward to shooting their session so I was a little sad when the dark clouds rolled in. Luckily, right before their session began, the rain stopped and the storm was over!

 We started their session in Old Town and after spending a short time there, we drove over to Great Plains Nature Center for the rest of their session. It turned out to be the most beautiful evening and We even were blessed with a gorgeous golden hour glow from the sun! How perfect is that!? These two obviously love each other so much! The photos tell it all! I loved getting to know Sheridan and Austin and their son and can't wait for their wedding later this fall! <3

Davis Wedding | McPherson/Hutchinson KS http://www.ashleymarkerphotography.com/blog/2017/7/davis-wedding-mcpherson/hutchinson-ks Brent & Kristine | June 10th, 2017 

McPherson, Kansas | Hutchinson, Kansas

Kristine and Brent tied the knot in the small Kansas town that holds so many special memories for them. It's where they first met, dated, fell in love, and got engaged! They met while Kristine was in High School and Brent was starting his first years in college. Fast forward and now Brent has earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy and Kristine is a space suit Engineer for NASA! It's no doubt that they are both amazing individuals but their love for each other is what sets these two apart. Kristine and Brent's wedding ceremony was held in McPherson and was followed by a reception at The Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Kansas. I had so much fun capturing their wedding and I am so excited to share a few highlights from each part of their big day! <3

As always, let the newlyweds know how loved they are! Leave your best wishes for the new Dr. & Mrs. at the bottom of this blog!
