It's just like a high school Hollywood movie- the star quarterback woos the cheerleader captain, they fall deeply in love and a few years later, decide to tie the knot. That's Chris and Ashley's story, in a little nutshell.

The one thing I noticed, during the entire time we spent shooting their engagement photos, is how Chris made Ashley laugh. It was constant, and it was real.
We met up for their engagement session in an old, overgrown, avocado orchard.  It was the perfect picture (no pun intended) of relaxation and romance- old quilts, a picnic, and Scrabble.  Perfect.

It was too sweet! BlogHayne5.jpgBlogHayne6.jpgBlogHayne7.jpgBlogHayne8.jpgBlogHayne9.jpgBlogHayne10.jpgBlogHayne11.jpgBlogHayne12.jpg I can't wait for their June wedding at the Temecula Creek Inn. With Ashley's good taste, it's bound to be outrageous!
