It was such a beautiful day for Ashley and Matt’s engagement session- the middle of fall, sunny and in the 70s. We photographed at the West End Park and also parts of Mount Washington. This lovely couple is getting married next year at St. Stanislaus, with a reception to follow at the Heinz History Center, and we can’t wait to be a part of it! These two fit together so perfectly- it comes so easily for them to make each other laugh and put their arms around each other and snuggle in. Take a look to see some images from their engagement session, and keep scrolling to learn a little more about them!
Q: Tell us how you met!
A: We meet through a mutual friend…actually met up with friends to watch a UFC fight, haha.
Q: What was your first date, and details, please!
A: 12/12/10 was the first date. We just got dinner and drinks at a local diner. Interestingly, the diner where we had our first date, Matthew’s company tore down the building a few years later and built a new building where it once stood.
Q: How did you know he was the one, Ashley?
A: It might sound cheesy, but from the moment I laid eyes on him, I knew he was the one. I remember coming home from meeting him, and as soon as I walked in the door, I told my roommate that I found the one.
Q: What was the date of the proposal, and details!
A: 9/11/15 was the date. We love to visit Gettysburg and we found a winery on a battlefield and loved it. We have been visiting it for years, and last time we stopped at the winery he proposed.
Q: What do you love most about your fiancé?
Ashley: How calm he is about almost everything.
Matt: That she is athletic.
