Coffee Shop + Crystal Bridge Engagement | Ashley + Cameron

FILED IN:

Everyone watched as they started to get to know each other. Cameron started to come around her apartment more and more. Her friends noticed that she was smiling more than usual. And everyone started to watch because we knew that they would be perfect together. Cameron & Ashley had an instant chemistry and we all watched as they quickly realized they were truly meant to be. It just made sense.

 

They love to travel and experience new things in the place where they met, Oklahoma City, and around the world. They love being absolutely goofy and not caring at all who is watching. They love dogs. I mean, they LOVE dogs. They love things that most people would think are out of the norm and they usually dislike trends. They love appreciating the world and friends around them. They love genuine experiences. And it just so happens that they love each other very much.

 

Cameron proposed at Turner Falls almost two years after they started dating. She was completely surprised! (you can read about their proposal here!) And a week later, they asked me to take photos in some of their favorite places.

 

We started at Leaf + Bean in Oklahoma City, a spot they frequented to do homework during the day and to get away to spend time with each other…

 

They got some coffee (& tea for Ashley) and snuggled up close on the beautiful brown couch…

 

 

Cameron and Ashley just melted into each others’ arms and acted as if I wasn’t even there…

 

 

Cam chose a ring that Ashley just adores. She wanted something very non-traditional (meaning no diamonds!) and Cameron picked out the perfect ring for his beloved to wear forever: morganite stone + rose gold. It’s slight pink tint and pear cut are elegant, chic, and a little different–exactly like Ashley.

 

 

They fit so perfect in each others’ arms…

 

 

We moved toward the windows that face the street. Leaf + Bean is bright, modern, and cozy–the best place to spend time with your love…

 

 

The small moments, the stolen glances…

 

 

They really are the perfect fit…

 

 

 

After an outfit change, we headed to the Crystal Bridge at the Myriad Gardens, another very fitting location for this unconventional couple. Cameron took Ashley to the Crystal Bridge on one of their early dates and to this day, it is one of their favorite days spent together. They still talk about it.

 

 

One of Ashley’s favorite things in the world are succulents and cacti, so it was perfect that we ended up among the plants…

 

 

They made their way up to the bridge, where they had made so many fond memories…

 

 

 

Reminiscing, they walked along the bridge, laughing, talking and stealing kisses…

 

 

At the end of the bridge, they glanced one last time to the other end, laughing and remembering…

 

 

 

To end the evening, we ventured outside the Crystal Bridge to the old tree stump out front, a piece of art that has entranced Ashley + Cam on their previous visits. Ashley glows when she looks over at her man!

 

 

 

 

I can’t tell you enough how incredibly unique and absolutely in love these two are…

 

 

 

Ashley & Cameron, thank you for being some of my very best friends. Thank you for letting me document your engagement so that I can stand with you on your big day. Two of the most beautiful, strong, loving, caring and interesting people I know… I love you both to the moon and back.
