OKLAHOMA STYLED WEDDING SHOOT

Hey Friends! I know I am the absolute worst at blogging because life has been nothing short of CRAZY in 2019! But i’m here to tell you i’m now gonna be catching up on blogs for the next 6 months, so BE READY FOR THIS CRAZY RIDE!

This February styled shoot was actually the shoot of my wedding photographer dreams. From the dreamy color pallet, to the amazing Oklahoma based vendors and beautiful models! I am forever grateful for this job and all the new people it lets me meet! We based the shoot off of subtle mauve tones with hints of pink and orange. I mean look at that calligraphy table scroll?! The wedding dress actually can be turned into 2 separate dresses as well! How stinking cool?! The shoot took place at The Reserve at Emerald Falls in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Oklahoma brides: make sure this venue is on your list to check out! The venue is so roomy and has so many different opportunities to style it for your dream wedding. Wild Honey Wed, based out of Stillwater, Oklahoma helped me put the shoot together, and let me tell you. They made it a breeze! Brides: I always suggest hiring a wedding planner/coordinator to help your day run smoothly! I don’t know what I would’ve done without them! Melanie & Taylor were a JOY to work with. When looking for a model for the shoot, I knew Melanie would be the perfect fit. She was the sweetest, and made my job so easy! I’m lucky to now be able to call her a friend. Go ahead and take a look at this shoot, and feel free to contact any of the awesome Oklahoma wedding vendors i’ll list below! I pinky promise they won’t let you down.

Hawaii couples session // Emeline & Sean

In early August I had the seriously GREATEST PLEASURE of shooting this adventurous couple and their stinking cute love story. This session was shot at the Edge of the World in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. The waves were TALL that day (due to a small hurricane heading our way, thank God it passed). They she asked if I cared if they both wore jean jackets my answer was “what the heck yes?!?!” Total Britney Spears and JT vibes ;-) I met these cuties through Instagram, and immediately knew they were the perfect fit for what I wanted to capture! The landscapes of Hawaii are obviously super beautiful, but these two made that scenery even better. They were full of spunk, silliness and tons of love. And it made my job super easy. Sean helped Emeline around the rocks, and only almost dropped her once. It was a DREAM! Haha! They are a part of YWAM (https://www.ywam.org/), and are missionaries in Hawaii! How awesome is that?! I loved hearing their testimony and getting a peak into their hearts and their evident love of Jesus and the things he’s doing across the world. Seriously, could my job get any better? I love nothing more than meeting couples from thousands of miles away and immediately connecting with them. THANK YOU to Sean & Emeline for letting a small Tulsa, Oklahoma photographer snap some photos and make some crazy memories. I will never get over this session, and I don’t think you will either! Now taking applications to travel across the world and meet more rad couples like this. Discount included XOXO

Adventurous one year anniversary session// Trista & John

THIS ANNIVERSARY SESSION WAS THE BEES KNEES! Because what better way to spend 365 days of marriage than with stinking pizza and champagne?! My kind of people. This lifestyle couples session was in Coweta, Oklahoma. We jumped on a RTV and made our way to a beachy area & the river! It was definitely a fun time! Sometimes it's hard to remember that Oklahoma is so GORGEOUS! These two (along with me), had such a fun time and laughed the way through the session! Definitely one of my favorites to date!
