Morgan & Micah | The Pointe Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Around six years ago, I shot one of my very first weddings. Kaylie was my one of my best childhood friends. (ahem.. note trendy, matte, vsco edit)

Last year, Kaylie’s sister, Morgan got engaged. Cue Ashley creeper mode. I may have stalked her Facebook until she finally contacted me about her wedding photos. Kaylie and Morgan’s family are near and dear to my heart and I was so excited not only to get to capture this special event for them, but to also be there to celebrate with them, too.

Morgan and Micah said their I dos at The Pointe in McAlester and the day could not have been more perfect. Sometimes things don’t go exactly how you had planned, and sometimes that’s just perfectly great. It rained. It was cold. I got a little lost and was a tiny bit late. And I lost Morgan’s wedding band for a good 45 minutes. (It was fine, it fell into the box of flowers). At the end of the night, these two were married and celebrated with their closest friends and family and there were tears and emotions and joy and happiness and it was glorious (and upon Morgan’s request: keep all the weird faces). <3

Holly & Ezra | Wildwood Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

I’m not sure I’ve enjoyed a wedding more than I have this one. I honestly wasn’t quite ready to go home when I was off the clock and would have totally stayed to party with these AMAZING people if I hadn’t have been cranky and tired. These two were so excited to get married. Their friends were so excited for them to be married. Everyone was just so happy that Holly & Ezra were getting married. I might have maybe shed a tear or two but don’t tell anyone because I’m a bitter single lady in her thirties right now.

Brittney & Anthony | Wichita Mountains Elopement | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

A few days ago - yes, I said days - I got a text from Brittney: "I need to call in a favor! I need a wedding photographer!"
Cue plans for an elopement in the Wichita Mountains a week later. 
Now, look at these photos, because they're magical. 

Emilie + Chris | Southwind Hills Enchanted Forest Wedding | Norman, Oklahoma Wedding Photographers

I hadn't met Emilie or Chris before their wedding day, and to say I was pleasantly surprised by this entire day would be an understatement. This wedding was not only one of the most gorgeous weddings I've attended (who could expect any less at Southwind Hills?) but it was also a friggin' blast. Weddings like these always remind me why I do what I do because at the end of the day my mouth hurts from smiling and laughing.

Pippin Hooray! | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Krystal and Michael were married last November on a beautiful Fall day. They wed at the Hall at the Railhouse in Norman, OK. Krystal and Michael planned an intimate ceremony and fun reception to show their appreciation to their friends and family for their support. Their ceremony included the Japanese San San Kudo ritual as well as the usual American wedding customs. Krystal's wedding gown was one of my favorites from last year. The back was so beautiful and intricate and flattered her perfectly.  The food was yummy, as it always is from Abbey Road Catering, and the cakes were delicious. Now I'm going to stop rambling and show you what you're really wanting to see: photos. ;)

Malcolm & Angelica | Norman Backyard Wedding

Malcolm & Angelica | Norman Backyard Wedding

Last July, on a warm, sunny day, Malcolm and Angelica said their "I dos" on the top of a hill at sunset in her sister's backyard surrounded by their entire family and all of their closest friends. The night ended with tacos, tequila and toasts (at least two of the best things that start with Ts) cartwheels, laughter, hugs, and tears. I couldn not think of a more perfectly planned wedding for these two. <3

Elissa & Jay | Winter Creek Golf Course Wedding | Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Elissa & Jay were wed on a beautiful day in May. Their wedding took place at the gorgeous Winter Creek Golf and Country Club in Blanchard, Oklahoma. As I was driving in, the fields were covered in wild flowers and I immediately got googly eyed.  When it came time for the ceremony, the blue sky was filled with white fluffy clouds that created an absolutely perfect backdrop for their "I dos." They danced the night away surrounded by their friends and family and became the most adorable family of three. Congratulations, Elissa & Jay!
