Rylee & Taylor | Quartz Mountain Wedding | Oklahoma Weddings

Rylee and Taylor’s wedding was a big ol’ surprise for me. I hadn’t met them before their big day and I had no idea where this place called Quartz Mountain was or what it looked like. While Kelsi and I were driving up that morning, the entire place was covered in fog, so I didn’t really get a good look at the landscape until the fog cleared, and boy was I pleasantly surprised.

The biggest surprise of the day, though, was how absolutely smitten I became with Rylee & Taylor. I don’t know that Rylee ever stopped smiling all day long, and the way Taylor looks at that girl is just heart melting. Everything about this day was just absolutely perfect, the weather, the company, the location, all of it. Now, enjoy the photos. :)

Miranda & B.J. | Ouachita Forest Wedding | Norman & SE Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Oh my! I just adore this wedding, you guys. Miranda & BJ are from the Norman area and just so happened to be getting married in Southeastern Oklahoma, which most of you know, is where I grew up! We were a match made in heaven. Just like 90% of the weddings I've shot in my career, it was supposed to rain the day of their wedding, but somehow luck was on our side and the clouds cleared for most of the day, and the weather and lighting were magnificent. There was a cool breeze, the air smelled of wildflowers and sunshine, and the song of the cicadas was all you could hear. 

Miranda and BJ ordered a ton of used saris from Etsy and that's how they made the majority of their decor, which turned out so beautifully. I got to spend most of the day with them and watch as their closest friends and family readied the entire space for them, which was so lovely. 

One thing I love about small weddings, aside from the obvious love that everyone has for the couple, is the freedom we have with scheduling. I got to take Miranda and BJ to some really gorgeous places I saw while traveling to them that I typically wouldn't get to do if we were on a tighter schedule. We got so many great photo opportunities and I'm beyond excited to share them with you. I hope you love these as much as I do. <3

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!

Lauren & Ben | Southwind Hills Brunch Wedding | Norman Wedding Photographer

I'm so excited to share this wedding with you guys. Lauren and Ben were married on one of the first chilly days in October on a Saturday morning. Their brunch wedding was complete with mimosas, coffee, amazing food and lots of laughter - as you'll see in a minute. I'm not sure I could imagine two people more perfect for each other than these two fabulous people. They don't stop laughing when they're together and it's a pretty contagious thing. Their wedding took place at Southwind Hills Barn Venue in Goldsby, Oklahoma right outside of Norman. Shooting here is always a treat because I know that every detail will be perfect and the entire day will run smoothly thanks to the awesome coordinators. Check out a few of my favorite moments!
