Last year, my friend Drew called to tell me the great news that she was expecting a baby. Her due date was very close to a couple of her weddings so she hired me to cover one of the weddings in case she went into labor early, etc. Drew really wanted to make it to both of her weddings though because she is extremely dedicated to her clients and cares about them a great deal. However, she almost didn’t make it to this one! Drew and her hubby got into a car accident the night before! Everything seemed okay but then Drew started having contractions! To make a long story short, the contractions stopped, Drew went home and planned on coming to the wedding the next day…I know…she is crazy! Crazy for her clients, that is ;-) I can see why too…Ashley and Tyson are just the sweetest couple and I was so touched to see not only the love they have for each other, but the love their families have for them. The day was beautiful, the details were gorgeous, and the Venue was to die for! They had their ceremony and reception at the Ebell Club in Long Beach. It was the perfect combination of urban scenery and old world charm. If you haven’t considered this venue, you must! It’s probably one of my most favorite locations that I’ve shot at. Before I end this post, I must thank Drew for asking me to come along to help shoot such a beautiful wedding! Definitely one of my all-time favorites Drew! :-) I must also thank Ashley and Tyson for being so kind to me! Have a wonderful time on your honeymoon! Here are some favorites from the day:Check out Drew’s belly! OMG..she is one dedicated woman…that is all I have to say!
