Ashley

Hey there! I'm Ashley Kost, originally know as Ashley Bayne. My hometown is Hastings, MN and I went to college at St. Cloud State University and graduated in 2017! Go Huskies! With a degree in Mass Communication with an emphasis in TV Production, I always had the dream of doing something with a camera. I absolutely fell in love with shooting weddings and has become an absolute passion of mine. I never thought I'd own my own business but so blessed and excited that I do! It's an absolute joy.

Fun facts about me: I was in competitive show choir in high school, I've worked for the Vikings and Timberwolves, I'm a extrovert that loves to make people laugh, and besides my loves for dogs and my husband, I absolutely love hedgehogs! (No I've never owned one before but they are just so so cute!)

Chandler

Hey guys! My name is Chandler Kost and I'm originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  I went to college at South Dakota State University and graduated in 2015 with a degree in Advertising and Marketing. Besides shooting weddings, I also have a full time job in Property Management. I can honestly say I never thought I would be in the wedding industry but now that I am in it, I absolutely love it. Seeing the joy and happiness each individual day makes it all worthwhile.

Fun facts about me: I love playing golf, craft beer, hiking, traveling  and laughing at Ashley's jokes. (Even if they are terrible! *wink*)

Let us tell you about our love story... it was truly fate.

Our love story started in the summer of 2014. Chandler was up at a Twin's game with his family. He is from Sioux Falls, SD and Ashley grew up in Hastings, MN. Chandler turned on Tinder to see what was around the Minneapolis area. By the fate of God & *Tinder Gods, our profile's showed up on both of our pages and we swiped right. "Perfect Match." Chandler was only in Minnesota for 24 hours and if it wasn't for Tinder, who knows if we would've ever met. 

But wait, it gets better!

Though Chandler was a senior in college at South Dakota State and Ashley was a sophomore at St. Cloud State, they knew there was something special between them and dated long distance for over a year and a half. Ashley convinced Chandler to move up to St. Cloud with her while she finished her last year of college. That's when they adopted their first dog Riley together. The summer of 2017, Chandler and Ashley got engaged and then married November 9th, 2018 at Almquist Farm. Since then they adopted two more dogs, totaling 3 dogs, Riley (chihuahua/border terrier), Indy (mini-aussie), & Harper (husky).  They bought their first house in Farmington, MN and hope to have children of their own soon.
