Mr. & Mrs. Briles


There is something about a quite and secluded spot in nature that I find so enchanting. Maybe it’s the aloneness, a feeling of exclusivity to the location. Or perhaps it has something to do with the mysteriousness of the uninhabited. Whatever it may be, it’s a magical feeling and I love it.

Nick and Ashlan were married in early spring at The Crystal Coop in Anderson, Indiana. The two met while attending Anderson University and immediately fell in love. The Crystal Coop is a beautiful little venue tucked away just outside of town, the perfect spot for a small intimate wedding.

The two decided on a First Touch for their wedding day. With Nick blindfolded, they shared a warm embrace and exchanged letters. The First Touch allowed them to share an intimate moment with one another before walking down the aisle, while keeping with tradition.

I had the pleasure of second shooting this wedding with Elese Imagery. It was the perfect way to start the 2019 wedding season!
