Sarah of Soul Coffee Creative {June 20, 2017}

Say hello to Sarah! Sarah is one of my dear, dear friends. We joke, but at the same time are 100 percent serious, that we’re soulmates because we have so much in common. Sarah recently decided to leave the corporate world and become a freelance marketing and development consultant for nonprofits. Thus, Soul Coffee Creative was born. Yay, for friend entrepreneurs! She needed some updated portraits for this new business endeavor, and I was happy to help. For this session we went to Cuppies & Joe in OKC. I loved the warm tones of the location and, bonus, the coffee is amazing. Thanks Sarah for letting me take your photos! Excited to see what your future holds!

If you or someone you know is looking for a communications expert with loads of experience in the nonprofit world, shoot Sarah an email at sarah@soulcoffeecreative.com.

Travis + Callista: Proposal {June 9, 2017}

Say hello to Travis and Callista! Callista is one of my dear friends, so I was thrilled when Travis reached out and asked if i’d photograph their proposal. I don’t photograph proposals often, but I was excited for the opportunity to photograph something different. Luckily I wasn’t spotted hiding in the bushes, even with Callista just HAVING to stop three yards in front of me to take a selfie with Travis. Haha! Thanks guys for letting me photograph such a memorable moment for you both. I’m excited for the wedding!

Walton Wedding {May 21, 2017}

Meet the new Mr. and Mrs. Walton! They got married at Rick’s Place in Coweta, Oklahoma, on a gorgeous May day. They couldn’t have asked for better weather, especially in May in Oklahoma. Their wedding was the perfect example of a spring wedding! From the venue, to the dress (with a veil!), to the decorations– I love how everything was put together. My favorite part of their wedding was Karrah and her father’s first look and the couple’s first dance. Both moments were definitely emotional. Thanks Sam and Karrah for letting me photograph your big day!

Here are some photos from the wedding:

Venue: Rick’s Place | Flowers: Robyn’s Flower Garden | Cake: Bride’s Grandmother (It was so good!) | Bride Dress: Alyssa’s Bridal | Bridesmaids Dresses: David’s Bridal | Groom + Groomsmen’s Tuxedos : Men’s Wearhouse

Ryan + Katelyn {May 12, 2017}

Say hello to Ryan and Katelyn! You may recognize them from their dreary, downtown session that we had in January 2016. For their engagement session we roamed around Centennial Park in Tulsa. Fun fact: This will be the location for their wedding as well. Isn’t it gorgeous!? Ryan and Katelyn, again, were perfect models that made each other laugh constantly so I didn’t have to bring out my corny jokes. (Thanks for that guys!) I absolutely love how these photos turned out. Thanks Ryan and Katelyn for letting me take your engagement photos! I’m so excited to be a part of your big day in September!

Garret + Hillary {April 28, 2017}

Say hello to Garret and Hillary! I went to high school with Hillary, but became good friends with her in college at Oklahoma State University. Hillary claims that I am somewhat responsible for this relationship, after I gave her a pep talk one afternoon on Library Lawn. She happened to meet Garret that evening after this pep talk and the rest is history. I definitely don’t claim full responsibility for this couple, but I do expect some recognition in a speech at the wedding. *hint hint* 😉

Anyways, for their engagement shoot we went to Woodward Park on a Friday morning, which I don’t know if any of you Tulsans have been there on a weekday morning, but let me tell you we had the WHOLE place to ourselves. It was kind of weird! The place is usually packed. We picked the perfect week for the session as all the tulips and flowers were at their peak blooming period. Garret and Hillary were an absolute joy to photograph! They goofed off most of the time (see photos below) but I loved that their personality shined through a bit in the photos. Thanks guys for letting me photograph your engagement session! I’m looking forward to photographing your wedding in November!

Austin + Kelsey {April 23, 2017}

Meet Austin and Kelsey! I went to middle/high school with Kelsey way back in the day. I was excited when she reached out wanting me to take her engagement photos. Our initial date was rained out, but luckily this day turned out to be perfect. I LOVE the photos from this session. Seriously, how gorgeous are these two?! Some of my favorite shots I’ve ever taken are from this shoot! That vine wall (end of post) made my plant lover heart burst from happiness. Thanks Austin and Kelsey for letting me take your engagement photos! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding in December!

The Taylor Family {April 16, 2017}

Say hello to the Taylor Family, or better known as my sister, brother-in-law and nephew! I still love saying I have a nephew. I don’t think it’ll ever get old. For their session we did a home session. I love home sessions! My nephew definitely wanted to play in the grass more than he wanted to take photos. He made me work for that smile with Sophie the Giraffe or waving random things in his face. Phew! Luckily, we got some good ones.
