Justin and Ashley first met at an elevator of a church in 2009. There, she was volunteering at the event in the church, and Justin rode the elevator up and down with her. In the elevator, Justin boldly asked her out, and Ashley couldn’t reject it.
First Date - Engaged
In Ashley’s book named A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like, for Glamour (2017), Ashley wrote the experience of her first date with husband Justin. She claimed the date was going fine until Justin asked her to split the bill and made her pay $5.25.

In the book, she wrote; she refused to meet him again. However, a month later, Justin got a second chance and went for their second date. Midst the date, Justin explained:
When you told me you were a model, I assumed you were one of those beautiful women who use guys for a fancy dinner. I don’t play that game. I do well for myself, and I’ve been burned because of it. I don’t want to go out with anyone who only has me around so I can pay for stuff.
She further wrote that the conversation with Justin felt like communicating with a man.
Eventually, they started hanging out more and got engaged in June 2010.
