They just wanted to have fun. Relax. Snuggle. And get some great couple shots- not engagement shots, but shots celebrating their relationship. Ashley and Melissa grabbed Kristin of Kristin La Voie Photography and headed to a paintball field.
“Ashley and I first met our freshman year of college at an event with mutual friends, but we were both with other people so nothing really came of it. It wasn’t until two years later when we were at a friend’s birthday party that the sparks and butterflies really started. However, despite poking and prodding from her friends, Ashley was just too shy to say anything to me, and I was too intimidated by her to say anything.
When I was invited a few months later to a Halloween party that Ashley was going to be at, I knew I had to be there. I knew it was going to be the last chance I’d get to tell her how I really felt, and see if we had a chance. It was going to be my last chance because I was going to be moving to Florida in a week. I figured I had nothing to lose, if she shot me down I was leaving anyway, and if she felt the same way I did, then I finally had a chance to be with her.
Luckily, she felt the same way I did and even though I was moving, as Ashley put it “a million miles away”, we both wanted a chance to make this work after waiting so long. So we took things slow and after a million text messages, Skype calls, insane cell phone bills and an amazing surprise graduation gift for Ashley, we fell in love and knew we’d make it work no matter what.”
