I’m here again for Taylor Tuesday… this time with a beautiful family.

It’s not often that I get to photograph a family with junior high and high school kiddos, but it is such a pleasure, when I get the opportunity. It seems like families tend to take pictures more often when their children are young. Which is such a shame. I know how important photos are now for me, as my children are young and adorable. But honestly I want to remember every stage of our family.

I’ve known this family for years and they are just so beautiful! Their three kids are so enjoyable to be around, which is what I hope that people will say that about my children one day, you know when they are older. I love watching these two amazing parents love their kiddos. Just a great family, if you don’t know them, you totally should!

Yall. This wedding. The best.
Morgan has been just the kindest soul from the very beginning. She has been a bridesmaid in 3-4 weddings we have done over the years and it was FINALLY her turn to be celebrated! You can totally tell that Morgan is the kind of friend every girl needs as a girlfriend and loves her people so well! When we showed up she had baked us brownies to say thank you before our day had even started! What bride bakes before her wedding day for her photographers?!
We were SO glad to be able to have a ton of time before and after the ceremony to get amazing photos of Brandon and Morgan together! Some of the sunset photos took my breath away and I am so honored to give them to Morgan and Brandon to enjoy for years to come! You guys deserve a lifetime of love and happiness! Thanks for being awesome!
Morgan and her dear sweet family have been just the BEST to work with! They hired me to shoot their grown family session this past fall and I loved getting to meet them all before the wedding and capture their family of four before they married off their daughter! We also loved seeing so many past brides and getting to catch up with their lives! In fact, three of the bridesmaids (out of 4) were past brides… how fun is that?!
Big thank you to some of our absolute favorite vendors! We love this team of oklahoma wedding professionals!

Photography brides in or at this wedding (WHAT?!) I actually missed one past bride that I didnt see until the end of the night so the picture is of six of them! It was a feat in itself to gather them but I could not pass up the opportunity to get a picture in the middle of this group! I am SO INCREDIBLY grateful to this amazing group of girls who have continued to tell their friends and refer us like crazy. I love them all so much! Thank you guys for making my job so fun and being the best brides in the world!

So we dont really have an “ideal” client.
I actually think the term is kinda dumb to be honest. We want clients that are kind, easy going and fun, and trust us completely with their wedding photography but thats about it! You hear photographers and workshops talk about the term “ideal” client being around a certain age, demographic, income bracket, likes shopping at said place. Ive always thought it was stupid but I digress.
Kirbie and Mark are the kindest. Did I mention that she GAVE me her Kendra Scott necklace at the end of the night because I told her I loved it?! Who does that? Only the most generous of hearts, thats who. I argued with her for awhile but there was no denying she was going to win.
All of that to say… if it involves cows I am pretty sure you are an ideal client for me. I have talked pretty extensively about cows on the blog. They are so weird and fun. Kirbie and Mark booked me over the phone and when they filled out their client questionnaire they mentioned their love of cows and how they wanted to do their session on their family farm. (swoon) The cows were funny (#becausecows) but they played along for a few photos. I LOVE the photos we took in the canoe. They brought a friend along to help with the canoe and I ended up wearing this total strangers muck boots so I could get in the water close enough to photograph them.
Kirbie and Mark… SO excited for your summer wedding at the lovely Southwind Hills!
