Soulmates can come together unexpectedly, but when they do, the ties that bind them together are stronger than any force that tries to stop it. By definition, "A soulmate is a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity. This may involve similarity, love, romance, platonic relationships, comfort, intimacy, sexuality, sexual activity, spirituality, compatibility and trust." (Wikepedia).
Aleshia and Ashley brought this definition to life during their surprise birthday and engagement shoot captured by Principle Photographer, Jermaine Horton.
Aleshia wanted to surprise Ashley for her birthday with a surprise engagement photo shoot. Although the duo has celebrated many birthdays together in the past, this one was special and took place on a chilly Chicago day. Aleshia lured Ashley onto the rooftop of The Viceroy Hotel for what she thought was a pre-dinner cocktail. Only to have Jermaine and two dozen of red roses presented to her with a loud...SURPRISE!!! The rest was "herstory"!
The evening was filled with so much laughter, almost the point of tears, as we walked around the hotel dodging in and out of locations to capture these memorable moments.
It's intimate moments like these when you can truly see love manifested. Aleisha and Ashley never stopped giggling and smiling throughout their entire shoot as they shared memories of their first encounter, dating, and ultimately coming together as wife and wife.
Congratulations Aleshia & Ashley!
Looking forward to the wedding celebration! #YourFavoritePhotographer
