Graham was working as a model in New York City while Ervin worked as a cinematographer in Los Angeles. Despite 3000 miles between them, this did not stop the pair's love story from flourishing.
Speaking to the Entertainment Tonight, Graham said:
"We have a rule. We don’t go longer than two weeks without seeing each other. It’s absolutely fabulous. I love it. We just meet in L.A. or New York. We meet in Paris, Miami. It’s pretty sexy."
The pair got engaged in June 2010. Graham told People:
“He’s so amazing. We come from different backgrounds, but we have the same viewpoints on religion and family.”

“I’m the curviest girl he’s ever dated but needless to say, he loves it!”
The couple does not share any children yet. In one of the interviews, Ashley talked about her plan for kids. She said:
“We are going to totally have kids. We are probably going to do it in the next few years, Just another part of my brand building.”
This delightful pair loves to flaunt pictures of them together on Instagram.
