ashley & patrick!

It has been so much fun to reconnect with Ashley since she & Patrick began planning their wedding last year! Although we attended the same high school when we were younger, we were a year apart, so we didn’t have the chance to get to know each other too well. After high school, I enjoyed seeing her from time to time on Carolina’s campus, which was where she happened to meet the love of her life, Patrick! These two are full of adventure and have enjoyed so many memories since their first meeting back in college – they’ve spent time abroad teaching English in Turkey, traveling throughout Europe, and now they’re exploring the Pacific Northwest together with their sweet dog, Atticus. I was incredibly fortunate to be able to travel out to Seattle for the very first time for their engagement photos earlier this month, and thanks to Ashley & Patrick (and our mutual friend, Allison, who came up from San Francisco!) I had the best weekend!

The following photos are just a few of my favorites from my time with Ashley, Patrick, and Atticus – a glimpse into their life in Seattle, with a stop at Pike Place Market and their beloved neighborhood park, Green Lake. A great, big thanks to Ashley & Patrick for bringing me to their lovely city – I cannot wait to come back!

    Ah! I love these Meredith, you did such a fantastic job! Ashley you look gorgeous! And of course Patrick and Atticus look handsome as well! I’d have to say my faves are the first one, the last one, and the one with Ash on Patrick’s back because I can just hear her (goofy!) laugh in my head! :) Bahh I can’t wait until the wedding!
