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!

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!

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!

Dale + Caitlin | Sapulpa, Oklahoma

Say hello to Dale and Caitlin! You may recognize them from their wedding and engagement session I did a few years ago. Now, they’re about to be parents in a few short months! My favorite part of my job is photographing repeat clients through new life stages, so this session makes me all giddy inside. Plus, these photos give me some serious Jane Austen vibes. Anyone else agree? Thanks, Dale and Caitlin for letting me photograph your maternity photos. You guys are an absolute joy to be around and photograph!  Excited to meet baby boy in a few months!

Special thanks to The View at Hillside Barn for letting us use your gorgeous venue for our session!
