Scott & Bonnie’s Bridal Fashion Shoot at the Illinois River
Every now and then we get to break the mold a little bit for a session. Not every bride is thrilled with the idea of climbing into a muddy river in their wedding gown, but it always produces amazing results when they are up for it! Bonnie and Scott eloped this spring and afterwards wanted to create some art to celebrate their wedding. Bonnie had seen a trash the dress session I photographed many years ago and knew she wanted one as well.
We chose the Illinois River for their location and we only had to dodge a few snakes. (okay, it was just a big stick, but it could have been a snake. 😉 ) Bonnie chose to invest in a custom designed album for this session and I’m so excited to get it completed! Here’s just a few of my favorites from their shoot!
The Bell Family – Philbrook Family Pictures
These folks are no stranger to my blog! They’re extra special to me because I photographed all 3 girls’ senior pictures, all 3 of their weddings, a number of family sessions for all of them. And now their family have grown even more this year: Two sweet as could be little baby boys.
Its always an honor to have a repeat client, but even more so when they’re just so darn loyal. Love Don and Lori and their sweet family!! Some of my favorites!!
Pansy & Ben’s Engagement Pictures in Downtown Tulsa
Its high time for this long overdue blog post! Ben and Pansy had such a cute engagement session in downtown Tulsa. These two both work downtown (we even used Pansy’s office for wardrobe changes and one of our locations) so it was only appropriate that its where we shot their portraits.
I love the relationship Ben and Pansy have. They’re incredibly laid back and they seem like they’ve been together for years and years. Couples like that are just a pleasure to work with!!
Heather & Brian’s New Year’s Eve Wedding at Sky Loft
Heather and Brian were married on New Year’s Eve at the Sky Loft Event Center in Tulsa. I’ve known Heather for a many years and am thrilled that she’s found the perfect man for her!
They had a fabulous NYE celebration complete with an aerialist/hoop dancer, jazz trio, champagne tower, and plenty of surprises throughout the evening. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves! (a list of their top notch vendors and their video from Redeemed Productions can be seen at the bottom of the post)
We did their first look in the lobby of the 1st Place Tower and then braved the cold for portraits in the streets of downtown Tulsa.
All of Heather’s bridesmaids wore Gatsby style dresses and furs! So fun!
The emotional ceremony was performed by Heather’s dad.
The bridesmaids and Heather surprised Brian with a singing and choreographed version of the final scene of Pitch Perfect. It was a huge hit!
No NYE wedding would be complete without a confetti cannon at the stroke of midnight!
