HEY cool peeps! Welcome to the AKP Blog! I'm Ashley Kapic and I'm a New Orleans + Gulf coast wedding photographer. Snuggle up with your boo and feel free to browse around for some inspiration and enjoy viewing my latest work! Thanks for stopping by!
Amber and Brad are two of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. I first met them for a Starbucks meeting where I got to chat with them and learn about their wedding vision and hear their love story!
Amber is also an amazing photographer, so I was beyond flattered when she reached out!! Photographers are ALWAYS excited to catch the eye of other photographers! It’s a HUGE honor that they trust me to photograph their wedding. Amber and Brad are getting married in just a few short months at the gorgeous Historic Post Office. I can’t wait to see what they put together- because they both have great taste!
Amber and Brad chose Christopher Newport University (Amber’s Alma Mater) as their location for their engagement session. They arrived and the day was gorgeous and cloudy, which was amazing because earlier in the day it had been in the 90s!
After shooting portraits in their first outfits, we saw some dark clouds rolling in and we began to worry! They quickly changed, and just as we were walking to our next spot, we got some rain. We took cover for a few minutes and luckily the rain has dissipated within 5 minutes! After that, everything was smooooth sailing! The sky was absolutely gorgeous, and we headed up to my favorite spot where the light was perfection!
I totally loved the outfits they had chosen! As much as I love soft pastel colors, bright bold colors totally stand out on a backdrop such as CNU!
Spending time with this amazing couple was so much fun and I’m very much looking forward to capturing their wedding day!
