The first time I met Brooke was in the winter of 2009. She was the bridesmaid in a (favorite) wedding we photographed. Shortly thereafter, she was a bridesmaid again in another fabulous wedding! Brooke made an awesome bridesmaid. I would run into her a party now and then, and I think we kept up with each other via twitter. She’d even occasionally run across a picture she thought I’d love an email it over. I knew at some point she would be getting married, and really really really hoped she would choose me to be a photographer. Well a few months back we got an email with the subject line, “Major Development” and sure enough, T.J. and Brooke were engaged. I was thrilled that she wanted to book me! She has impeccable style so I knew the wedding would be fabulous!! I have LOVED getting to know her as a bride!
I soon discovered that Brooke had been a bridesmaid just a few more times than the 2 weddings I had photographed her in. In fact, I’m pretty sure she was in all 10 of her own bridesmaids weddings. (sounds a little 27 Dresses, huh?!) Brooke and T.J. pulled off the most beautiful wedding! It was classic and stunning and definitely had a “Jackie O” feeling to it. Its one of those weddings that will still be stunning in 30 years!
Well I’ve rambled WAY too long. But when a girl needs to gush, she just needs to gush. MmmK? Oh and I really love T.J. too, but Brooke is just so stinkin’ cute that I may have gone a little heavy on pictures of her. Well, her and the flowergirl. But wait till you see that kid… you’ll see.
Um… hello!! Is this child not a total cherub?? Such a cutie!! BTW, this wedding was at the end of April and thus should have been warm. But as you know, this Spring Oklahoma weather lost its mind. So it was actually a little cool that day!
On the way to the ceremony… There’s just something about this picture that I love!

Brooke and T.J. your wedding was truly one for the books! Can’t wait to see what the future holds for you two!
