Do you want beautiful, artful images of your kids, pets, and families that will both preserve personality and make gorgeous wall art?

Then you should let me shoot your family in a Day in the Life session.  Which is a shoot that takes place in your home and captures a taste of your family and or life.  

My strength, passion and love is photojournalistic photography.  That kind of imagery revolves around reality, and authentic moments.

10 Instagram pages to follow for wedding inspiration

You've Pinterested all you can Pinterest.  Your eyeballs are bleeding and if you have to click another beautiful inspiring blog link only to find yet another dead end, you're going to be reduced to a blood shot crying shell of a woman! No worries!  Take a break and go through some of these inspiring click free Instagram feeds for a breath of fresh wedding themed air! 

 

1.) Wedding Chicks
This is one of my favorite Instagram feeds! This is a site that photographers can tag #weddingchicks for chance to be featured.  This feed's vibe is classy, fun and a touch of sass.  The other good thing about the site is it's also a great boutique! 
lovewc.me/shop


 

2.) Wedding Diary
This has photos from weddings and brides all over the world. There isn't only one specific focus on this feed, which I love because I get distracted easily! You'll find images of wedding table tops, bridals, shoes, elopements, floral inspiration and even some maternity images!  


 

3.) Wedding Dress Look Book
Oh my!  This is a feed dedicated to wedding dresses, bridal makeup, rings and other jewelry! The vibe on this collection of images is very elegant with a fun undertone. 



4.) Wedding Day Whispers
This one is fun.  It's another one that has images from all over the world.  It has a wide range of focus from wedding destinations to bar setups, dresses to rings, suits to bridal party formals. 
The style vibe is very high fashion.  I like this one because it's different from the "norm"

5.) Rock and Roll Bride
This feed is from Kat Williams who is a British bridal blogger that I have followed for years! Her Instagram feed is fun, colorful, bright, different and worth a look.  Especially if you want to look at some wedding inspiration that will make your face hurt from smiling.  Click on the link, DO IT! Seriously, DO IT!

6.) Rock My Wedding
Another British Bridal Blog, but I love it! This is probably the closest to my personal style, so I am drooling over this feed often. This is  a more earthy, flower child, boho chic style set. It's amazing!

7.) Green Wedding Shoes
This is a collection of destination wedding style! I love that they don't forget about the grooms in this feed!  They style is classic with a very slight edge to it! 

8.) June Bug Weddings
June Bug is very similar to Green Wedding Shoes in style. The main difference is they seem to focus on featuring images that highlight emotion and interactions!  

9.) Wedding Sparrow
Wedding Sparrow features film shot photos from fine art photographers all over Instagram!  They tent to lean toward light, airy and organic images of brides, weddings and venue locations.

10.) Barn Weddings
Last but not least, since I'm a a photographer based in the south, I have so many barn weddings and barn style brides.  This collections of barn weddings is what southern wedding dreams are made of!

 

I hope you enjoyed this list of Instagram pages that I follow!

Myriad Gardens May Wedding

January 31, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

This is a wedding filled with favorites for me.  
This wedding was at the Myriad Gardens in downtown OKC.  One of my favorite venues!
The planner for this venue was Gail with Weddings by Gail.  One of my favorite planners! 
This GORGEOUS cake was with Amy Cakes.  I've yet to see anything less than amazing from her.  
They got ready at the Colcord Hotel which overlooks the Myriad Gardens.  If you haven't stayed here, you should!!  I heart this hotel... alot. Plus it's gorgeous in photos!  

 

 

This May wedding was gorgeous!!  Since we are in Oklahoma, it was tornado season.  There was a storm "a-brewin'" so we had originally planned for the wedding to be outside, but as a backup plan, the wedding was held inside the Crystal Bridge!  
 

As she walked down the stairs of the Crystal Bridge with her father, her and her "almost" husband locked eyes and both began to cry on the spot!  One of my favorite moments from all of my weddings, past and present!  

This couple embodied best friends who were also madly in love!  Their friends and family were both hilarious and fun to be around!

Little Black Book Sessions

January 09, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I'm kicking off the year with a Little Black Book event!!!  
These are my boudoir sessions that I offer.  This time we will be shooting in a King Suite in the 21c Hotel and Museum in downtown OKC right by the Jones Assembly!  
I will have an accomplished professional hair and makeup artist working with each one of you pre-session. 
Each session will come some time before we shoot where I will go over what you have to wear and what we can work on together that will make you feel comfortable.  
To help with nerves, I will also have wine from Water's Edge Winery!  
Each session will have a professionally designed Little Black Book with fully edited images.  

I promise this is fun! The biggest thing I hear from people is 
"I want to do this, but I'm not comfortable with my body yet". 
Well, ditto! I keep waiting for that day and it's still not here. But this isn't something you do when you feel "pretty". 
You do it TO FEEL PRETTY!!!!

Peyton (my make up artist) and myself have got this! You'll feel pretty and fancy in your own private shoot.  



I've done a few myself, the best part that makes you feel pretty after the session is when you catch your partner glancing through the book, or find it in their drawer on the top where you know they were looking at it. What's better than knowing that your significant other was stealing some glances of you in private?  It's the pretty gift that keeps on giving!!  
I've seen this from the other perspective as well, where the partner who received the book feels so overwhelmingly honored that this was done with them in mind!!!

So don't worry, you're perfect how you are and I know how to bring out the best in anyone. I've yet to ever shoot one client that walks in, says "Here I am, the most gorgeous specimen you've ever laid eyes on, now get shooting". We all have our shy moments.

I will not be scheduling anyone overlapping unless you're scheduling with a friend. I will take time to help you bring clothes that you will look your best in and feel comfortable and pretty wearing before the session.

At the session I will take time to look through what you have and we can form a plan together.

It'll be fun! I promise! I have a couple spots left. First person to claim them, get's them!
