When Mariah + Dakota first reached out to me about photographing their wedding, Mariah explained that even though they were having a more traditional wedding at their home church in Edmond, Oklahoma, she also really really wanted a wedding photo session in the mountains afterward. Hi yes hello let’s do this.
In-home photo sessions are like the world’s best kept secret.
They’re not nearly as popular as they should be, and while the concept may seem strange at first, just think about it! Your own home. Your most comfortable element. Ultimate relaxation and coziness. The most you. Everything familiar and homey and welcoming to help you feel so natural and relaxed during your photo session.
You ever meet those people who are SO kind and SO sweet they just feel like sunshine and laughter and all things lovely???
Yup. That’s Olivia + Rob.
Well. I’ve been planning this blog post for weeks and I find myself not even knowing how to begin. Because WOW I still haven’t recovered from the magnificence that was Amelia + Luke’s wedding day.
Alex + Ryan’s Oklahoma City engagement photoshoot is the perfect definition of an adventure session. Because of severe thunderstorms and impending flooding, we went back and forth and almost postponed it about three times, but we finally decided to just go for it and embrace the weather. I never shy away from shooting in the rain or inclement weather, because sometimes the craziest circumstances make for the most memorable photos. And I think that is exactly what happened with Alex + Ryan’ session.
Sometimes in the middle of a wedding day, I stop and wonder how this is my job. How did I get to be so lucky to get a front-row seat to some of the most breathtaking, beautiful moments in people’s lives? Wes + Elyse’s wedding was one of those times.
