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.
STONE BARN AT BLUEBERRY HILL ENGAGEMENT SESSION | OKLAHOMA CITY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | JESILYN + KYLE
Jesilyn + Kyle chose to have most of their engagement photos taken at the gorgeous Stone Barn at Blueberry Hill event venue in Oklahoma City. It was the most perfect day, right at that crisp beginning of fall. We explored the beautiful Blueberry Hill while listening to their favorite music, some Shania Twain and Turnpike Troubadours. (Also, spoiler alert: these two can seriously two-step.) Then we drove over to downtown OKC to a favorite rooftop to catch the last golden rays of sun.
You might remember seeing my last post featuring The Best Wedding Venues in Oklahoma (aka, my favorite wedding venues in Oklahoma). Since that post, I have had the opportunity to experience even more gorgeous venues this wonderful state has to offer, so I figured it was high time to add a few more favorites to the list.
Usually my clients come to me a bit uncertain about their engagement session, asking for advice and help with planning. But Kendi + Denzel knew exactly what they wanted. We sat down over coffee and they told me all about their ideas. They were looking for something different. They were over what was traditional. They wanted modern, funky, bold, and unique.

A few weeks ago Holly secretly texted me wanting to set up a surprise photoshoot for her and Kaleb on their 6-month anniversary. Adorable, right?? WELL, around that same time, Kaleb also secretly texted me saying he was planning to propose to Holly in the next couple months and could I photograph it. OH HECK YES.
