Mike and Ashley are two of my closest friends, so I was thrilled when they mentioned they wanted some photos together. We just spent a couple hours laughing and talking at the O’Shaughnessy Dam and later at my aunt and uncle’s property down the street. It was great.
There’s this stretch of Riverside Drive next to the zoo that gets this lush wall of lilacs every spring. I had been wanting to take pictures there for-ev-er and Mike and Ash were happy to oblige. We did have to wave off a few bumblebees, though.
Then it was off to my aunt and uncle’s yard for some sunset images. The light out there is to die for. If you’re wondering why they’re blowing dandelions, they’re making wishes for their future together. (cue the “awwwww”s, everyone!)
These last few images are my favorites from the day. I can’t help it.
