Tanya’s Bridal Portraits – Philbrook Museum Bridal Pictures
Tanya and Michael were married yesterday so now I get the fun part of showing off her bridals!! We photographed them at Philbrook (which as many of you know is one of my favorite places to photograph). Tanya is bubbly and sassy so she’s just so much fun to be around and a blast to photograph! I’ve had such a wonderful time getting to know her and her family that it makes me a little sad that the wedding is all done with now. But I know we’ll stay in touch. Love that girl!
Lisa, Colin, Paxton & Baby 2 – Gilcrease Museum Maternity Pictures
Oh where to even start with this family… the first time I ever photographed them was about this time 5 years ago. Lisa and Colin were just engaged at the time. I’m glad that we’re still doing sessions together after all these years and they’re just so very dear to me. I’ve photographed so many major milestones in their lives; Engagement, wedding, Baby 1, and now, Baby 2. (oh and there were a few other sessions in there too!). I’m so thrilled that they continue letting me be a part of their lives. Colin and Lisa, I love you guys!! And after at least 8 sessions that I can think of off the top of my head, this is one of my very favorites!!
Spring this year has been off the charts beautiful!! Love it!!
And really, I’ve never seen wisteria this beautiful before!
For this shot, I asked Lisa and Colin to kiss. And little Pax reached up to get a kiss too! Melts my heart!! Soooo sweet!!
Hannah & Kalyn: Engaged – Philbrook Engagement Pictures
I’m beginning to accept that catching up might never happen. I really will give it a good effort though. But in an attempt to play catch up, I don’t want to continue to fall behind. And when I have an adorable session that needs to be blogged (and I just happen to be editing it and have a few minutes to blog) then I need to do it. Doesn’t mean I don’t love you or your pictures if I haven’t blogged them. It just means I’m Andrea. And on top or Artist Brain, I also have Pregnant Brain. So please know that I love you all and that I want to blog everyone I ever photograph and its on my list of things to do. Ahem. Geez… I can really get myself into a tizzy over these things.
Hannah, and all the Bell family, are some of my favorite people. I’ve photographed them all, and they’re one of the most hilarious and lovely families you’ll ever meet. I did Hannah’s senior pictures, both of her sister’s senior pictures, her parent’s couple pictures, and one of her sister’s weddings. Love love love them! Oh and Hannah’s aunt is one of my very best BFF’s. At this point, they’re just family. So anytime I get to photograph them its a blast. But when its extra special, like getting married, it makes it extra fun.
Shellie & Michael: Married – Vesica Piscis Catoosa
It was time for a more updated post! We’ve been having a blast with these spring weddings and I hope to post them all! Shellie and Michael are precious, and so are their families. I love the weddings where I can get to know not only the couple, but their families too! My favorite clients are the ones that have close relationships with their parents and siblings. It makes the wedding day so pleasant.
Shellie and Michael have been great to work with from the start! (And I’m not just talking about the fact that they’re both ridiculously good looking, but that doesn’t hurt.) They’re just fun to be around! They got married at Vesica Piscis Chapel on a great day! It was sunny and pleasant out and during the ceremony the thunder started rolling in and we got a beautiful Oklahoma storm! (luckily, they opted for a first look so all the outdoor pictures were done… mostly)
(all shots above by brilliant April)
Isn’t Shellie’s sister, Maggie, just the cutest? I love these shots of her helping Shellie into her dress!
See… aren’t they pretty?
One of my fave portraits of the day!
I can’t help myself… I just love a sunny beautiful picture!
When Shellie saw her pictures, she told me, “I kept thinking… where is Andrea??” Well, we’re kinda sneaky. Especially April. She’s kind of like the phantom photographer on the wedding day.
The wonderful families! So appreciate these folks!
While these toasts (which were awesome and tearful and all the good things speeches should be) the owner of Vesica, Judy, came and tapped us on the shoulder and told us we had to see the clouds outside! I sent April out to shoot in case they moved quickly, while I covered the toasts. Check out the result below…Um…. thank you Judy!!! How beautiful!! Luckily, we had time to rush the couple out for just one last picture before the clouds left. (Like I said above… we were mostly done with portraits before the ceremony. But not completely.)
I’m thinkin’ I need a sample at the studio of this one!
Thanks to Shellie and Michael and their families, it was a beautiful day! I’m so glad you chose me to be a part of it!
Gail & Bobby: Engaged – Fire Station Engagement Session
I’m prepping to leave for Gail and Bobby’s wedding right now, but in the process I realized I had never posted their engagement pictures. It was such a fun session and it needs to be shown off. Besides, I’ll be all excited about their wedding pictures after today and will want to post those instead.
They are such a fun and down to earth couple. Gail is sweet as pumpkin pie and Bobby is hilarious and just ever so slightly ornery (and by “ever so slightly” I mean that at Gail’s final consultation for the wedding Bobby got on the speaker phone to harass me about hanging a picture of them in their studio. Can’t say that I can blame him though.)
When Gail initially told me that she wanted some of their pictures done at the fire station, of course, I was thrilled!! I had April come along to help on this session. She’s married to a firefighter and I figured she would know how to deal with those guys. But other than some playful teasing directed towards Bobby, they really behaved themselves. Anyway, enjoy the pictures! Look for wedding pictures… someday!
