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!

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!

Clay + Julie | Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Meet Clay + Julie! For their engagement session, we roamed around Broken Arrow stopping at a nature reserve and Main Street Tavern where they had their first date. This session is definitely at the top of my list for hottest temperature experienced during a session. It was in the 90s with at least 85 percent humidity. It. Was. Gross. Luckily that didn’t stop Clay and Julie for cuddling up with each other and having a great time. Thanks, guys for letting me take your engagement photos, I’m excited for your wedding in December! Hopefully, it won’t be as hot. 🙂

Colton + Cecily | Wellington, Kansas

Say hello to Colton and Cecily! Cecily is one of my dear dear friends, so I was ecstatic when she asked me to be her wedding photographer. For their engagement session, we roamed around Wellington, Kansas, stopping at a random barn and their church. We ended the session in one of Colton’s wheat fields. I definitely need to incorporate wheat fields in all my sessions. Pro of having a farmer as one of your clients. Thanks, Colton and Cecily for letting me spend the day with you in Kansas. I’m excited for your wedding in September!

Baker Wedding | Thuret, France

Meet the new Mr. and Mrs. Baker! They got married at Château La Canière in Thuret, France on a gorgeous June day. Jeremy and Jenny are hands down some of the most genuine people you’ll ever meet. They went out of their way to make sure all their guests were comfortable and enjoying their stay. They also were an absolute delight to photograph–even when I had them take formal photos for TWO hours. Ha! They were troopers! Their wedding was stunning! It’s so hard to pick my favorite moment from it. There are too many! But I loved the speeches the wedding party and parents made during the reception. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. Thanks, Jeremy and Jenny for letting me tag along with you abroad for your wedding!

Wise Wedding | Sperry, Oklahoma

Meet the new Mr. and Mrs. Wise! They got married at Bellissima Ranch in Sperry, Oklahoma.  Taylor and Faith were an absolute joy to photograph; they were wrapped up in each other all day. It made my job easy! Their wedding was gorgeous! From Faith’s stunning dress to the groom and groomsmen’s fun socks, to the florals; everything was perfect. My favorite part of their wedding was that Taylor carried Faith any chance he got–down the aisle, during the formals, really just because he wanted to. It was precious. I also loved the dancing at the reception. They know how to have a great time! Even with a foot injury (See photo below.) Thanks, Taylor and Faith for letting me be a part of your big day!
