I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME. YOU'RE MY SWEETHEART.
- The Lumineers
IT’S NOT JUST A PHOTO SESSION. IT’S AN ADVENTURE.
Hands-down, couples sessions are my favorite thing to shoot. Whether you just got engaged or have been together for years, let's go exploring and let me document your crazy fantastic love in all of its raw, passionate, giddy goodness. Rather than a rushed, awkward hour of standing in front of my camera and smiling, I focus on making this the best freaking experience and some of your favorite memories as a couple. Relaxed, unposed, informal, no time limit. After years of shooting and countless couples sessions, this is what I’ve learned is the best atmosphere for creating honest, authentic, candid images. We’ll work together to figure out the perfect locations, activities, and outfits that define who you are as a couple. We can dance on a mountaintop, go out for drinks or pizza, take a roadtrip, hike through the woods, build a blanket fort in your living room, or hang out in a cozy coffee shop, wherever we need to go to make the magic happen. I’ll play music to set the mood and help you relax, and we’ll chat and hang out just as much as we shoot. We’ll spend as much time as we need to create and have fun and make memories.
But you gotta feel it. You gotta be all in. If you let loose and trust me, then I promise that together we will create some freakin’ magic.
Oklahoma + destination couples sessions starting at $350
“My fiance and I were lucky enough to have Payton as our photographer for our engagement session in September. We were throwing around the idea of rescheduling our session due to rain and flooding, but when we decided we wanted to go through with it, Payton was super supportive and powered through the weather like a champ. Her and Michael worked great together as a team and made my fiance and I feel very comfortable even though it was our first time meeting them. Throughout the process of scheduling and the actual session itself, her communication was spot on and her suggestions for locations and poses were exactly what we were looking for. I could not be happier with how the photos turned out and she really managed to capture the vibe of our relationship. Once we get around to actual wedding planning, Payton is the one we will be contacting for our wedding photography. We could not recommend Payton enough!!!” - Alex + Ryan
“My fiancé and I had the opportunity to work with Payton for our engagement session in White Sands, NM and the pictures are absolutely beautiful! Payton made us feel comfortable and CONFIDENT the entire shoot. Her talent and sweet personality made for an experience that we will cherish for a lifetime!” - Anna + Ben
“Payton is an amazing photographer! Our engagement session was relaxed and fun, and she did such a wonderful job capturing who we are as a couple. The photos blew us away with how perfect they are! We had never worked with her before but by the end of our shoot we felt like we had new best friend. We cannot say enough good things about Payton - she is the sweetest, funniest, and down to earth person we've met. We look forward to working with her again!” - Ericka + Stephen
“We had ‘post-wedding’ pictures taken to celebrate our upcoming five year wedding anniversary and I really cannot say enough great things about Payton and her photography! I have never loved pictures of us more! She was so laid back and easy going. Everything was a joy from start to finish! So thankful to have found her and can't wait to have more occasions (hopefully!) in the future to get to have her document them!” - Chelsea + Jonathan
