Dennis and Ashley | Paducah Historic Coke Plant Engagement Session / by Emily Margaret

"And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more"
-Christina Perri | A Thousand Years

She's a girl from Maine and he's a boy from Uganda. They met one magical night at a church bonfire and after months of emailing, texting, and video chatting across nine timezones, the rest became history.

I am SO excited to share Dennis and Ashley's engagement session because they are two dear friends of mine and I could not be more thrilled that they are getting married. Ashley, my Portland-granola-world-traveler friend left her heart in Africa several years ago after she lived there for a few months, so when she met Dennis, they had an instant connection. 

We shot their engagement session at the historic coca-cola plant building in Paducah and it turned out to be the perfect location because it felt about -25 degrees outside and who looks cute while freezing anyways.
