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!

Wilson Wedding {September 30, 2017}

Meet the new Mr. and Mrs. Wilson! They got married at Central Center in Centennial Park in Tulsa, on a gorgeous September day. Their wedding was extremely entertaining and quirky. They added a quirky/nerdy touch to everything from sunglasses as party favors, so you weren’t “blinded by their love” to a sign that said “Mutual Awkwardness Forever”. They are definitely my kind of people. My favorite part of their wedding was Ryan and Katelyn’s choreographed dance to Bohemian Rhapsody–it was amazing. Thanks Ryan and Katelyn for letting me be a part of your big day!

Here are some photos from the wedding:

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!

Minschwaner Wedding {October 1, 2016}

Meet the new Mr. and Mrs. Minschwaner! For their wedding they got married on Caitlin’s Grandfather’s land surrounded by family and friends. Oh my goodness how stunning the location was! It was amazing! You could tell that Dale and Caitlin put a lot of work into the details. It definitely looked like a wedding out of a magazine! My favorite part of the wedding was the ceremony and the wedding party photos. The wedding party was so fun! I was cracking up the whole time. The best men speech was hilarious as well. Thanks Dale and Caitlin for letting me be a part of your big day!
