On the day of her wedding, Ashley confessed that Mandie that she knew that Mandie would be her wedding photographer from the get go. But since she says it best, we’ll let her explain. ” I knew when i saw her photos online that she was the photographer for me. I loved her style and was willing to do anything to make it happen. We hired Mandie and throughout the process was able to email/chat with her by phone. We come to the day of the wedding and Mandie was there although her puppy went missing two days prior. She was absolutely wonderful to work with and so incredibly talented.” (Don’t worry, Mandie’s puppy was found during the ceremony.) To have someone compliment and committed to the art you make is an amazing honor. Mandie still talks about it and is forever grateful Ashley and Ross trusted her with such a monumental moment and were sympathetic with her puppy situation.
But making beautiful images was easy with the two. Ashley and Ross are a sweet couple to see. Consistently, Ross would just look at her and say, “You’re so pretty.” with no prompting! (We don’t blame him though, Ashley’s a BABE) They made the best of their day no matter what – while outside, it started hailing, which they actually loved despite the cold. They also bared the cold later after the sun went down and searched for the Milwaukee Athletic Club’s Edison bulb switch with us to help make nighttime magic happen. Ross made his best man his father – which is probably the most telling thing about his character. Loyal and kind, he was someone that people could speak highly of, which his father gladly did and with gusto.
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for a wonderful couple – we wish them good luck with their new jobs and settling into Milwaukee life!
