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.

Intimate Winter Oklahoma Wedding // Ethan & Kelsey

You know those couples that you meet and know they will last a life time? Their love story pulls at your heart strings and makes you believe you’ll find your person one day? This is them. Ethan & Kelsey SO evidently showed the lords love to me and everyone at their wedding! Their closest friends and family came to celebrate them. I could go on and on about how they are the best, but I’ll move on to their awesome wedding day! This January wedding was held at Greenleaf Barn in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma! The venue is an absolute dream, with rustic clean white walls, and twinkle lights outside. It kicked off my 2019 wedding season as an Oklahoma Wedding Photographer! Kelsey’s grandfather was the officiant and it was sweet seeing the connection they had, he was overjoyed to see his granddaughter say “I do”. Some words that would describe this wedding would be classic, relaxed and just plain LOVE. These two love each other so well! Each and every vendor was amazing! Andolinis Pizza truck was catered, and everyone lined up outside for pizza while the DJ started his music! The weather was perfect (a little chilly), for a January Oklahoma wedding! They were sent off with a sparkler exit and drove away in Ethan’s truck. This day was my favorite and was such a joy to start off this year’s Oklahoma wedding season.

Rustic Chic Oklahoma Wedding // Abby & Cooper

Let me start off by saying this wedding was an absolute DREAM. A couple months back I blogged about their engagement and now I get to blog about their sweetest wedding day! There are certain weddings I just know will be one of my favorites for the rest of my career, this was one of those weddings! My dream one day is to travel to weddings and elopements across the world, but Oklahoma weddings will always be near and dear to my heart. October weddings are some of my very favorite to capture! The weather was great also (such a plus). Their style was rustic with a bit of chic also. Everything flowed together so well and was just F U N. This day was full of tons of laughs, tears and ice cream! The bridal party was so sweet to Abby the entire day, and it was so neat witnessing all of their friendships on such a special day! These two got married at the most beautiful new wedding venue in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma at The Reserve at Emerald Falls! The flowers were done by her now mother-in-law Mindy and they were BEAUTIFUL! I love all the pops of red! The had a intimate first look alone, and it put all of Abby’s nerves to rest! (Have I ever mentioned first looks are my FAVORITE!) Such a sweet moment between your soon to be groom (or bride). If you’re getting married and thinking about doing a first look, i’d definitely suggest it! The night ended with a sparkler send off and leaving in a vintage car. Below are some of my most favorite images from the night! Congrats Abby & Cooper! So much love for my bride and grooms! XOXO

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

Romantic Oklahoma Engagement// Abby & Cooper

This Tulsa, Oklahoma engagement shoot was nothing short of A BLAST! We shot it at Turkey Mountain in Tulsa, and it has the most beautiful landscape overlooking Downtown Tulsa! I am shooting these two’s wedding in October and can’t stinking wait! I met Cooper years and years ago through my old youth group, it’s so sweet to see him engaged and growing up! The love these two have for each other is so evident and so fun to watch! They are always making each other laugh, and had me cracking up! Nothing makes me happier than having an adventurous couple wanting to have fun and run around with me! Cooper was a great sport with all the fun poses me and Abby wanted and smiled through them despite the pain! Lol. Abby’s styles also was a great PLUS! Look how cute her outfits are?! Take a look at some of the photos I got to snap at this session!
