These two totally rolled with the flow, let their day unfold without any stress or rush, and were an absolute joy. At their first look, they both kept saying, "You look so amazing! Wow! Oh my gosh, I'm SO excited to marry you! Babe, we're getting married today!" As soon as they came down the aisle as husband and wife, they stopped for a spontaneous celebratory dance right there. Their wedding was full of happiness and wild dance moves and just simple elegance.
ERICKA + STEPHEN'S ENGAGEMENT ADVENTURE SESSION AT THE WICHITA MOUNTAINS | OKLAHOMA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Ericka + Stephen are two of those people I knew I wanted to work with even before I met them. From the first few emails with Ericka, I was totally on board with their vision for their wedding and engagement photos. When we met up at a local coffee shop, my suspicions were confirmed: they are, in fact, two delightful people.
In-home sessions are not a new thing, but as someone who's most comfortable shooting outdoors in the wind and the sun and the mountains, they're certainly new to me. But so far in life, I have never regretted getting out of my comfort zone, and this in-home session with Kevin + Taylor was no exception.
Your wedding venue is one of the biggest decisions in planning your day, and deciding on the right place can be overwhelming. It's not just about what's popular or cheap; it's about finding that one location that perfectly defines who you are as a couple and sets the mood for your wedding day.
If you're venue-shopping and need some ideas or recommendations, I've compiled this list of my favorite wedding venues in Oklahoma, at least of the ones I've discovered so far...
Rather than a traditional wedding, Taylor + Preston wanted to say I do in an intimate ceremony in the mountains at sunset. So off we headed to the gorgeous Wichita Mountains in southwestern Oklahoma. To our dismay, it rained the whole time we were driving. But as soon as we pulled in, the rain disappeared and all was well! Their two beloved dogs stood in as their wedding party, and Taylor wore her grandmother's treasured necklace.
Abigail + Dillon's wedding might win the prize for most unique wedding I've yet to photograph. Pizza, donuts, + pie for a reception feast, a gold wedding dress, vintage decor and personalized details, velvet bridesmaids dresses, a burgundy tux for the groom, peacock chairs and greenery galore. It was like a dream. I could not have imagined a more beautiful occasion!
