Josalyn & Jesse’s Dresser Mansion Wedding

Posted on: Oct 20

    Josalyn and Jesse got married in September at Dresser Mansion. Although I don’t get to photograph that often at Dresser anymore, its one of my favorite venues! The light is just divine and it’s was also a perfect backdrop for the style of wedding Jesse and Josalyn had! The day was awesome, pretty much flawless, and lots of fun! Josalyn comes from a multicultural family who love to have a good time!
Jesse’s brother, Cody Johnson, is an amazing photographer and a dear friend of mine from college so I was so honored that he sent Jesse and Josalyn my way for their wedding. I just wanted to give him a big public “Thank You”. :)

Oh hello sexy “getting ready” photo!

Josalyn’s dress was a bit different than what I’ve seen lately and I loved it!! So perfect for her!

The bride and her sisters…The gorgeousness just does not stop in this family!!

I love big bridal parties… but I equally love small bridal parties! ;) Its nice and intimate that they were able to stick with just their siblings for their attendants.

This little guy took his job of Ring Security pretty seriously. Such a cutie!!

Like I said… I don’t hate a smallish wedding party. Not one tiny bit!

She is just divine!!

I just love these pictures of Josalyn with her grandpa. So sweet.

The bride’s stepdad was really shy about dancing… ;)

Holy crap the sunset was UNREAL that night!!! It looked like a Thomas Kinkade painting!

I had to put Cody to work at the end of the night… thanks for the help ole buddy!

An adorable couple and a classic car are one of my very favorite combinations. :)

Congrats again to Josalyn and Jesse! I loved getting to know y’all better and having the honor of photographing your wedding! It was really lovely!

Amy’s Bridal Session – Ambassador Hotel Tulsa & Philbrook

Posted on: Oct 13

You guys, its so stinkin’ hard to photograph a beautiful bridal session then have to keep it secret till after the wedding! I get so excited after a bridal session and then I’m forced to sit on them for a few weeks or sometimes a few months. But its worth the wait. :) Amy is a gorgeous bride and she got married on Friday at Philbrook. We did most of her session at Philbrook, but ran over to the Ambassador Hotel for a few indoor images. Take a look!

Jennifer’s Glamorous Bridal Pictures

Posted on: Oct 06

Jenn & Jimmy were married on Saturday so I’m finally free to show off her bridal portraits! Y’all know I love me a bridal session, and then one was just extra fun! For her session I wanted to do something a bit more dramatic than usual, and Jenn was more than willing to help me out with that! We chose Philbrook, as usual, for her session. But we decided to most of the session indoors. Take a look at what we got! :)

This one is totally my fave! Love it!!

***Philbrook indoors is always an option for a session, but they do charge a fee to photograph there. There are no free venues that we can photograph indoors in the Tulsa area. The venues charge anywhere from $50 – $400 for a session. But they are well worth it if you’re wanting something different.***

Morgan & Paul: Married – St. John’s Episcopal Church Tulsa

Posted on: Sep 16

Brace yourselves for gushing. There could be an onslaught.

Morgan and Paul…. I love these people. I love their families. I love their bridal party. I’ve got nothing but love love love. They are such wonderful people and photographing their wedding was pure joy for me!!
M&P got married on a gorgeous August day at St. John’s Episcopal. It had been years since I had gotten to photograph there and its just one of my favorites. Its so classically beautiful, so I had to make sure I got lots of dramatic lovely shots indoors. We later scooted over to the German American Society for their reception.
It was just a wonderful day. Have I said that yet? Here’s some photos to prove my point. ;)

Both shots by April. We were loving the stain glass that day!

Love Morgan’s mama, Kimberly! They have a really sweet relationship. You’ll see a few pictures in this blog of those mama emotions. (I’m a sucker for a crying picture!)

How cute is Paul? He was a little bit nervous and I love the big tears in Morgan’s eyes right before he turned around. Chills.

Love him, right?!?! Can you even believe that expression?! Take note grooms! I actually couldn’t see his reaction (the top one is April’s shot) because I was photographing Morgan’s reactions. So when I saw this photo I about fell over! Love it. And I also love that big tear running down Morgan’s face.

Favorite.

Morgan’s makeup was done by Tulsa Bridal Beauty. It was really lovely and suited her perfectly!

I told you, we were kinda obsessing over the stained glass.

Moments before Morgan walked down the aisle.

I just had to post this picture because its so Paul and it just cracks me up! Pretty sure he was batting down the bubbles. He’s crazy.

Such a fun group!!

Best first dance ever!! Seriously. It was elegant and lovely….

…and then they ended it with a lift a la Dirty Dancing. The whole crowd went completely nuts. It was fantastic and flawless!

They were pretty proud of themselves for pulling it off. And rightfully so!

Oh this image just gets me. A mama watching her husband and little girl dancing. This sort of things has always made me teary, but even more-so now that I have a daughter myself.

So many times at wedding receptions its easy for couples to get separated when they start mingling. But these two stuck pretty close to one another the whole time. Very sweet.


Oh what was that you were wondering? Is the light yummy at German American Society? The answer is yes. Yes it is.

Hugo, with Lion’s Road DJ, really got the party going! It was also a really fun crowd that was ready to dance. That helps. (BTW, Hugo is also responsible for the dance lessons and choreography that turned into that awesome first dance!)

Morgan and Paul I so appreciate you guys and I can’t tell you enough how great your wedding day was. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

Callie & Erik’s Wedding – 5 Oaks Lodge, Jenks

Posted on: Sep 08

Love this wedding. Love this couple. LOVE this family!! I photographed Hayden, Callie’s older sister’s wedding, a few years back and I just adore the whole family!! Seriously they’re all amazing and funny and sweet and love the Lord. They’re just the best family. This wedding was actually a few months back, but its too fabulous not to post.
Callie and Erik got married at Five Oaks Lodge on a beautiful evening! Five Oaks was a fabulous backdrop for their ceremony and the reception was classically beautiful. I honestly could gush and gush about this wedding, but I think I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking!

I’ve already posted Callie’s bridal session, but I couldn’t resist just one more that I photographed on the wedding day. Geez she’s gorgeous!!!

Don’t they even just look lovable?? Well they are.

As much as I love the Huey family, I have to say that Erik’s family are equally wonderful!! And Erik was one of the best grooms I’ve ever had. Such a nice guy!!

How ’bout that reaction to seeing his bride?!

…And Dad’s reaction to giving his daughter away. Kills me!!

I’m pretty sure I have a very similar picture of Hayden and her dad when she got married. These girls love their daddy!!

  

The sweetness just doesn’t quit.

Erik played football in college so a lot of his groomsmen were football players. Let me tell ya, Erik is not a short guy. His groomsmen were just really big dudes!! If I ever needed a step ladder for a wedding, that would have been the day.

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve probably already seen this picture. Its one of my favorite wedding party picture ever!!

Okay I did a lot of gushing, but seriously y’all, it was just a great wedding. Congrats again, Callie and Erik!!
