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!

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.

Ashley and Braden were married this past Saturday. They celebrated afterwards at Castle Falls, in Oklahoma City. Castle Falls is such a hidden gem. It has a great outdoor option if you are looking for outdoor locations, but it also has an indoor reception hall. The grounds are beautiful, with tons of trees, some open areas and lots of garden areas. Ashley is absolutely gorgeous and looked stunning in her wedding dress.

My favorite thing all day was their first look. Braden was so excited to see his bride and Ashley was tearing up as she walked up to meet him. Ashley read her letter to him, which is something I haven’t seen before. (Usually our couples exchange letters and each read them to themselves.) As she read, she wiped tears from her eyes. It was such a sweet and emotional moment. Sarah and I were dying behind our cameras at the preciousness of this moment. As we photographed one of the sweetest moments I’ve ever seen on a wedding day, I was reminded of why we love first looks so much. What an incredible time they shared on their wedding day. So often we hear brides and grooms say they don’t want to “miss out” on that moment when their groom sees them for the first time as they walk down the aisle. But we argue that you are actually missing out on a more intimate moment shared only by the two of you. Well done Ashley and Braden.

Here’s a look at their beautiful wedding.

Taylor here on this beautiful Tuesday morning, with some of my favorite bridals. Ashley and Braden were married just this past Saturday and I have been dying to post her bridals. Ashley requested shooting her bridals at Castle Falls, since that was where the wedding is going to be. The evening was perfect, lighting was gorgeous and the location was ours to explore. We had a great time and I was blown away by how fabulous Ashley looked. She was stunning and I am obsessed with how these photos turned out. Thanks for trusting me and letting me play in a new location Ashley.
