Hank + Ashley | Engagements | Grand Junction Colorado

Every couple has a love story, here is Hank and Ashley's!
Hank and Ashley first met at Pork & Hops in 2012 through mutual friends.  They never exchanged phone numbers but were both pleasantly surprised when Hank strolled through the door while Ashley was out for a girls night about a month later. They've been together ever since. The combination of city girl/snowmobiler and country boy/team roper is nothing that either of them could have imagined for themselves but it couldn't have turned out any better!  As the story goes, opposites attract!  Hank proposed to Ashley on Sept. 14th, 2013 at the CPRA Finals.  Hank had been planning the proposal for a few months and had included their local family, friends, 1,000 rodeo fans and the best rodeo clown ever!  The evening was pulled off flawlessly, Ashley never had a clue what was going on around her until he hit his knee.
The wedding is scheduled for 2/22/14 which is a sentimental number to Ashley, as 222 used to be her competitor number when she raced snowmobiles.
I have the wonderful pleasure of capturing the love on their wedding day and spent an afternoon shooting their engagements.  Check them out!
Special thanks to my dear friend Katie from Katie Landers Photography for assisting me and providing me with many laughs during their session!
