Julie | Tulsa, Oklahoma

Say hello to the new Mrs. Lynch! Her wedding was yesterday, so I can finally post her bridals! Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous?! We had the perfect weather for her bridal session. Warm and no wind. Yes, NO wind in Oklahoma. That never happens! Julie’s dress looks incredible on her and that veil is breathtaking. I love how her photos turned out! So light and dreamy!

Kennedy | Tulsa, Oklahoma

Meet Kennedy! This sweet, bubbly senior was an absolute joy to photograph! Her session was freezing, like 26 degrees cold. I was wearing my heaviest jacket and gloves and she was rocking a light sweater and jumpsuit for half of the session. She was a trooper! Despite the cold temperature, I love how her photos turned out. We roamed around The Pearl District stopping anywhere and everywhere that looked like a good photo spot. It reminded me a lot of when I first started my business (almost 10 years ago!) because that’s how my sessions would go. We’d roam A LOT. Thanks, Kennedy for letting me take your senior photos! Good luck at Oklahoma State University (my alma mater!) next year!

Taylor Family | Oklahoma City, OK

Say hello to the Taylor Family aka my sister, brother-in-law and cute nephew! For their session, they mostly played on the playground and threw leaves at each other (and me, see below). I love how they turned out!

Atchley Family | Oklahoma City, OK

Say hello again to the Atchley family! This is my third time photographing them and their sessions are always SO much fun! Emma has come a long way from her little two-tooth grin from their first session. Though she still loves running around just like she did in her second session. This year, she was taking directions quite literally. When I would say, “Ok, now look at each other.” She would tilt her head straight up to look at her parents. It was hilarious. It’s safe to say she’s practically a pro now. Thanks, guys for letting me take your family photos!

Ryan + Chelsea | Tulsa, Oklahoma

Say hello to Ryan and Chelsea! I went to middle school and high school with Chelsea. She told me in high school (I thought jokingly) that one day when she gets married that I was going to be her wedding photographer. Keep in mind that I didn’t start photographing weddings until after high school. Sure enough a few years later she reached out and was like, “Hey do you remember when I said this?” Life is funny sometimes! For their shoot we roamed around downtown Tulsa, dropping in at Welltown Brewing where we got to take photos in their brew room. It was cool! Ryan and Chelsea educated me in all things beer. After filling my brain with beer knowledge and their bellies with delicious beer, we went to Woodward Park. A favorite spot of mine in Tulsa. Chelsea told me before their session that they wanted a lot of “mushy gushy” photos because that’s how Ryan makes her feel. ISN’T THAT PRECIOUS?! I could go on and on about how much I love this couple, but I’ll stop here. Thanks, guys for letting me take your engagement photos! I LOVED spending the afternoon with you. Can’t wait to photograph your wedding in May!

Twilling Wedding | Claremore, Oklahoma

Meet the new Mr. and Mrs. Twilling! They got married at 320 on Main on a slightly rainy, overcast October day. This wedding was an absolute blast to photograph! They definitely know how to throw a great wedding: from the multiple emotional “first looks” with family and friends to the reception where there was a photo booth AND caricature drawings. My favorite part of the wedding wasn’t a particular moment, but how everyone: family, friends, guests, celebrated Michael and Maddie. There were a ton of tears, laughter, and joy throughout the whole wedding day. Michael and Maddie are definitely blessed with so much support! Thanks, guys for letting me a part of your big day!

Garret + Hillary | Stillwater, Oklahoma

Say hello to Garret and Hillary! You may recognize them from their engagement session and wedding last year. This session was special because it was for their one year anniversary! They wanted to go back to where they met, Oklahoma State University, for this session. The forecast had a high chance of rain all day, but instead of rescheduling they totally embraced the rainy day session. They were a blast to photograph, running around and kissing in the rain. I had a ton of fun photographing this session, and I love how the photos turned out! Thanks Garret and Hillary for letting me photograph your anniversary session!

Whaley Wedding | Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Say hello to the new Mr. and Mrs. Whaley! They got married at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame Museum on a beautiful September day. I loved how they prayed with family and friends throughout the entire wedding day–it was so personal. I loved Anthony’s reaction at seeing Alexis walk down the aisle. It was emotional. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. My favorite part of the wedding was their 90s themed reception. SO AWESOME! Definitely the best reception I’ve photographed to date. Thanks, Anthony and Alexis for letting me be a part of your big day! I absolutely loved spending the day with you guys!

Minschwaner Family | Tulsa, Oklahoma

Meet baby Dean! I was thrilled when the Minschwaners told me they wanted an at home newborn session for their new son. I absolutely adore at home family sessions! Dean was bright-eyed for his whole session. There was just too much going on to fall asleep. Thanks, Dale and Caitlin for letting me photograph you guys and cutie pie, Dean.

Day Wedding | Enid, Oklahoma

Say hello to the new Mr. and Mrs. Day! They got married at 81 Ranch on a gorgeous September day. Cecily is one of my dear friends, so this wedding was extra emotional for me. She is so so kind and I’m beyond happy she found Colton. They are a perfect match! Colton is a farmer so naturally, their getaway “car” was a John Deere Tractor. It was awesome! My favorite part of their wedding was their reception. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. It was so fun! I also loved their grand exit! It was definitely the best grand exit I’ve ever photographed. Thanks, Colton and Cecily for letting me be a part of your big day! Welcome to the family, Colton!
