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.
I love my brides. But seriously, I do. I think one of the most fun things about my job is seeing how each and every one of our brides make their weddings truly and uniquely “them” … from the venue to the flowers to all of the details that surround the event. Its not an easy task making your wedding feel like you but when brides do it and do it well it is so fun to see it come together!
Amanda has such fun vintage style. Her wedding ring is an antique. Her favorite thing is to shop at antique stores. The Sand Plum was the PERFECT venue for her! We loved seeing all the things she did to make it come together.
The day started perfectly at Brendans family farm in Guthrie, Oklahoma. The plan was to do all of the photos in the pretty fields and farm around that area. The rain made that plan disappear but Amanda was TOTALLY cool with changing it at the last minute. We left the farm and headed to the wedding venue in Guthrie and dodged the rain for just a bit to get their photos in the streets of downtown Guthrie.

Taylor Tuesday…. well hello there!!! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on a Tuesday. With the craziness of wedding season, I decided not to worry too much about posting only on Tuesdays, but just try to get each wedding posted. Mission accomplished. So now, let’s get back on track. Watch out Tuesdays.
I shot Emily and James’ engagement session just last week, in the heat of the summer! I do not suggest this of course, but Emily lives out of town and had a limited window of time to do her session. So we pressed on. She said she was a shorts and t-shirt gal anyway, so she didn’t mind. And James was a great sport, bringing his own sweat towel! Which of course he is used to since he played football his whole life.
These two are just fun to be around! I’m pumped about their wedding next spring.
Here’s your sneak peak Emily! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Jenn and Alex were married earlier this July and they had the most fabulous weather. Who would expect 85 degrees and a cool breeze in the middle of July in Oklahoma? It was perfect. Everything about their day went so smoothly. They had a super fun wedding party and the best families. Every detail was intact, thanks to the wonderful work of Jenn and her coordinator, Leslie Herring.
My favorite thing about Jenn and Alex are their personalities. They are incredibly goofy and are always laughing about something. Alex was beaming from ear to ear after the ceremony. He couldn’t stop looking at his beautiful bride. He was definitely one of the giddiest groom’s I’ve ever seen. It was so fun to capture their wedding day.
And they threw quite a celebration at the History Center. Some groomsmen tied their bowties together for a game of limbo and everyone, even the band participated! Then Jenn spontaneously sang karaoke with one of her bridesmaids. It was such a fun and memorable evening.
Thanks again for letting me be a part of such a perfect day!
