This is crazy, but we are celebrating Kim’s third anniversary as part of the HolliB Team. It seems insane that I haven’t introduced her before. In fact, as I started this post, I searched the blog to find her “introduction blog”, which is when I realized I had never formally introduced her. #hugefail

Kim started working as my (Taylor’s) second shooter back in 2011 and has remained faithfully by my side for the past three years, going on four, this season. To even begin to describe Kim, is an impossible task and there is no way this blog post will do her justice, but I am going to try.

I have known Kim for at least eight years. We met when I was in college and I interviewed for an internship with her organization. I happened to sleep through my alarm and missed my appointment :), but she graciously gave me a second chance and we rescheduled to meet at a McDonald’s. After the interview, we drank Dr. Pepper and shared hot fries. And this is when we knew we would get along just fine. We remained great friends even after the internship and I moved in with her family for one summer, while David and I were dating. Since I lived with them while we were dating the four of us became quick friends and we still love to hang out together. But our double-dates have turned into small family gatherings, since we both have two kids now.

This is us at the U2 concert. Excuse my point and shoot camera (and the rando photographer who took the picture).

And these little gems comes from our “Lost Party”. We hosted a party to watch the Lost finale and made everyone dress as a character. I am Claire (crazy Claire). And Kim is Kate (she had a woman crush on her, who didn’t really?) And did you notice Black Smoke in there? That’s Holli B herself. Ahhh those were the days… pre-kids (for most of us at least) … when we had time to dress up as  tv characters and go to an adult party for hours on end, not keeping track of time.

This is Kim’s incredible husband, who loves her so well and supports her in everything that she does. (The HolliB staff really does have the best husbands around.)

And these are her adorably cute boys, Evrett and Wesley. Aren’t they dressed so perfectly and totally handsome?

They really are the funnest family.DSC_5731 fam

Sorry for the small family session post here, but I just love all these pictures and never got around to posting them last fall. I mean, come on… how perfectly coordinated are they? Leave it to Kim.fam2 And sometimes our kids have to come to the studio to “work” with us. #whatatrooper

kim004

If I could only say one thing about Kim, I would sum her up with, “Kim loves life.” She is joyful all. the. time. And so positive. She loves being with people and honestly, she loves her job. Who doesn’t want to be around someone like that?

She is the best test model…

Kim has amazing style and I want to “pin” her outfit and attempt to recreate it every time I see her. We joke about who looks better every time we work together, but Kim always wins. #teachmeyourways

Kim is an unbelievable friend, who is hilarious, authentic, athletic, incredibly outgoing, so encouraging and a powerful prayer warrior. She is someone you want by your side at all times. And that is why we love working together. We have the best conversations on our way to work (over Dr. Pepper and hot fries of course) that usually leave us laughing until we pee our pants. #notreally #butithashappened And at the same time, I can’t tell you the number of times Kim’s encouraging words have gotten me through a rough day/week.

Groomsmen love her….kim010

And… can we talk about this hair?kim011Over the past few years she has grown so much as my assistant/second shooter. Not only has she developed her own style but her eye for capturing important moments has exploded. Let me explain, her eye has not actually exploded, because that would be awful, but she gives our clients memories captured as photographs that they can remember forever. When Kim “doesn’t have anything to do” she finds something interesting going on to photograph. Whether it be the groomsmen laughing, the handcrafted favors or guests mingling.

These are just a few of the images she has captured that I absolutely adore. It definitely pays off to have a second shooter at your wedding… the additional vantage points and eyes to see what’s taking place “behind” the action is awesome.kim013

Thank you Kim, for the past three years! Thank you for serving the HolliB team and ultimately our clients so well. You are one of a kind and the perfect fit for us. You bring so much joy and enthusiasm to the HolliB team and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be the person/photographer that I am without you by my side. So excited for this next wedding season with you.

Bray and Lauren were married last weekend on a rainy Saturday evening. Not just a little rain folks… SO MUCH RAIN. I have probably photographed 7-8 weddings on really rainy days but the rain DID NOT stop literally all day long for this wedding. I LOVE that Lauren and Bray were game for still doing a few photos outside under an umbrella. They were my favorites! Bray and Lauren you are awesome! You were so excited to be married and it was so fun to celebrate with you. Hope your honeymoon was so much fun!

Alli and Theo were married in Oklahoma City and had a beautiful fall wedding! Their ceremony was at First Church and their reception was at the lovely Gaylord Pickens Heritage Museum in OKC. I met Alli a couple of years ago as the was a guest at quite a few weddings I have photographed. I was so glad to shoot her big day when it was her TURN to get married!

Alli made her day unique by using the coolest flowers from Poppy Lane… I looooved how the bridesmaids bouquets made the color of their dresses pop! She also had two wedding dresses- a formal one for the ceremony and a short one for dancing at the reception!

Alli- youre the best! Hope to see you at more weddings this spring/summer!

Sam and Halie were married this summer and we are catching up on the blogging we didnt get around to doing during our busy months! Sam and Halie chose to do something a bit different with their wedding- they only had their immediate friends and family come to their ceremony and then invited everyone to their reception. We loved the intimate feel of their small ceremony and the fun party they had afterwards.

We LOVE photographing weddings at the oklahoma city golf and country club. We had three weddings with them last year and they did a great job of making it perfect! If you are looking for an oklahoma wedding venue you should check it out!
