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!

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!

Here are some photos from the session:

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!
