I have photographed so many big, gorgeous, wonderful weddings, and there are few things better than having a grand party with all your favorite people to celebrate your wedding day.
But elopements, man. They get me.
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.
It was such a privilege to be there for this quiet, intimate moment; to watch Taylor + Preston commit to each other for life in the midst of such a beautiful place. Just two kids, crazy excited to be married, ready to take on the greatest adventure together. It was magic.
