Melissa & Bill’s Wedding – 1 Year Anniversary
Melissa and Bill were married 1 year ago yesterday. So I thought now would be the perfect time to blog their wedding. It also seems like a good idea to have 3 weddings at the Mayo blogged back to back. 😉 Its the perfect trifecta!
Melissa and Bill (and their kiddo Jack) are just really, really likable folks. On the day of their wedding, my baby was in the hospital. I knew she was in good hands with my husband and our families, but it was still hard to leave her. Melissa was beyond understanding and absolutely wonderful and I’ll always be thankful to her for that.
I also have to say that she had one of my favorite wedding dresses ever!! So stinking gorgeous!!!! Congrats on your first year of marriage, Melissa and Bill! Love you guys!!
Oh and at the bottom of this post check out their video from Redeemed Productions, along with links to some of the amazing vendors that also worked on this wedding.
Taylor and Mark’s Asbury & Mayo Hotel Wedding – Tulsa Wedding Photographer
Taylor and Mark… oh where to even start?? Mark is the brother of another one of my all time favorite brides, Laura. And we all know I love love love working with a family more than once. Seriously, its such an honor! When I heard Taylor and Mark were getting married at Asbury I was thrilled. If you know me, you know that I too was married there. So its extra sentimental to go back. Taylor and Mark were actually high school sweethearts. By the way they look at each other, you’d think they were still in that “honeymoon” stage of their relationship, and not that they’ve been together for years and years. They are just really nuts about one another.
Taylor has a very sweet relationship with both her mom and dad. I do have to say, that I think she had the sweetest first look with her daddy that I’ve ever photographed! His reaction was priceless. You won’t want to miss those images.
At the bottom of this post, take a few minutes to watch the INCREDIBLE video by PenWeddings! I love it when I get to work with them!! This wedding had an awesome team of vendors on it – check out their links below!
I told you!!! So sweet, right??
As always, April was with me on this wedding. My view is the top image, hers is the bottom.
Aren’t these first kiss pictures just the sweetest? I’ve always said the first kiss is a great moment, but the reaction is always far better!!
Mark is a baseball coach at OSU – so of course the OSU colors had to be sprinkled here and there.

Lisa & Chris – Philbrook Engagement Pictures
It’s engagement season! It’s such a fun time of year! Brides and grooms are excitedly starting the planning of their weddings, and I’m loving hearing from them! Thinking about engagements, reminds me how grossly ignored my blog was in 2015 (as usual). So its time to catch up on some sessions.
Lisa is the sister of one of my favorite brides from 2010. If you’ve read my blog before, you know I love it when I get to work with a family for a 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) time. She and Chris are absolutely darling together and I couldn’t be happier that they’ve found each other!
Whitney & Keith: Married – First United Methodist Church Wedding
One of my favorite weddings from 2015, was the wedding of Whitney and Keith. They are a beautiful couple, both inside and out, and they had a beautiful wedding. They are my ideal client because they LOVE photos and really allowed me to do what I do best. I love dramatic wedding photography – and I was able to create just that for them.
Whitney hired and incredible group of vendors for her wedding day, and working with them was truly a pleasure. Check out who was a part of their wedding day, plus I’ve included their video by Redeemed Productions at the bottom of this post.
After the ceremony, we wandered around downtown Tulsa for some portraits (we had a big rain storm most the day, so we were blessed with a break from the rain for a few outdoor portraits) and ended at the Mayo Hotel where their reception was held.
Heather & Brian: Engaged – Arkansas River Engagement Pictures
Heather and Brian are a few short weeks away from their New Year’s Eve wedding and I’m getting super excited about it! Since they live right on the river, they decided that would be the best place for their engagement photos. Photographing on the river is always an adventure, and I only fell in once. (I was making a dramatic rescue of one of Heather’s shoes) I think that’s a win!
Stay tuned for Heather’s ridiculously gorgeous bridal session we shot!
