Ryan and Kelly are getting married this Saturday so I wanted to share with you their beautiful engagement session! And I have to say that these are two amazingly warm and charming people! The session started with them inviting me up to have a drink and appetizer with them and their cutie little dog! They are just people that approach everyone with an invitation into friendship and it is so rare and left such an impact on me. They didn’t just approach their session as a service I could provide for them but as a chance to get to know each other and leave with more than just a great working relationship. I am SO excited to get to capture their day this saturday! And lets be honest, they couldn’t be cuter or more in love!
Hailey and Taylor were married last weekend at the new Southwind Hills wedding venue in Goldsby, Oklahoma. We were SO excited to celebrate the evening with them and everything turned out perfectly! We love this family and their sweet love for one another… I almost teared up every time I watched Haileys sweet dad look at her. He was just precious! The band, Limelight, was from Dallas and we have only had one other wedding where we have heard them before and they were so fun all night long!
My team has photographed a few weddings at Southwind already this year but this was my first time to shoot there and it was just lovely! Our farm is just down the road a few miles so it was pretty nice to only have to drive a few miles to get home afterwards. The owners of Southwind are friends of ours from our small town of Washington and our children are in the same class. It has been really fun to support them in their amazing new venture! All of our brides that have gotten married there have just had wonderful things to say about this venue!

I met Caddy like 9 years ago! She was in high school and I was in college. I was a Young Life leader at her high school here in Norman. We hung out alot throughout the rest of her high school and then into college. We have always kept in touch, sometimes better than others! So when she got engaged, she asked if I would take her and Jarik’s engagement pictures and then, if Ellie would be a flower girl in her wedding. I said yes to both requests, of course! Ellie was such a cute flower girl at the wedding and she raced the other girls down the aisle…. she won… duh! But she was also a little diva, who wouldn’t let anyone take her picture, so I do not think there is a decent photo of her as the pretty princess that she was. My fingers are crossed that there is one out there and I will see it soon :) Anyhow, I digress… we shot Caddy’s engagement pictures just a few weeks before the wedding on her grandparent’s farm/land. I love shooting people I know and in new places, so this was such a treat!
Happy married life! Can’t wait to catch up!
We loved shooting Rachels bridal session in a few random locations this spring. Oklahoma is lacking in the bridal location department and you have to get creative to find spots that are unique. A few years ago we had a beautiful field of redbuds that we shot sessions in all of the time. They have since been cut and sold so we were on the lookout for some more. I drove around a found a few and loved how Rachels bridals turned out by driving around and finding a few new bridal locations.
