This is going to sound so cliche’… but I am going to say it anyways. After years of watching people in planning weddings and getting married, I have come to believe that the marker of a man in true, real, so-deep-it-hurts kind of love is the way he looks at his bride. I have been known to be completely paralyzed at times – stopped in the corner of a church with my camera covering my face crying – because of how some Grooms look at their Brides. Like she’s the most amazing treasure that they ever could have dreamed of. Like they are the luckiest man in the world. Like they are so excited to spend the rest of their lives letting this person know just how much they mean to him. That is how Bryan looks at Ashley. And they are really lucky that I didn’t just collapse into a little, sniveling ball and start sobbing during their engagement shoot. It’s that precious.
