Michael + Katy {Tulsa Wedding Photographer}

February 9, 2013 started out with a slow drizzling rain. Which, by the way is good luck on your wedding day! I have no doubt Katy and Michael's marriage will be a blessed one. The moment I met them I knew they had a special God-given love. They had such a mutual respect for each other while being madly in love at the same time. Their afternoon wedding was at Rhema Bible Church and the reception was at the Clarion Hotel. Their wedding color was red...which was only to be expected of a couple who adores the University of Arkansas! You'll find one of my favorite couple photos below of them with their hog noses on!! Haha they were a blast! Michael is now an ordained minister and is the youth pastor at Cedar Point Church in Claremore where he and Katy are very active. Congratulations to almost a year of marriage and many more!

One day on a bridge in Pryor, Oklahoma

This couple is particularly special to me. I met Chrissy in the Christian sorority Sigma Phi Lambda. The years I spent at school in Phi Lamb were some of the best of my life. Chrissy and Travis have been engaged for 3 years now and are still so madly in love. It's more of an undercover affection but you can tell by the way that they smile and look at each other. It's absolutely beautiful. There is a bridge in Pryor that is no longer in use. It's the epitome of what I love to photograph. I adore things that are antique, rustic, and just plain old! Travis chose to propose at this spot on September 19, 2008. On the way to the bridge he would joke about hearing they were tearing it down next week. She would playfully slap him on the arm and tell him that it's not true. You can tell how much it means to both of them by the way the speak of it. It is a place that will always hold a reminder of their love and the day they chose to make the plunge into a lifetime of commitment to their other half.

Some of these images were  taken at this bridge, and the rest were taken all around Travis' property. There is one image where you can see his dog Chigger. She was such a joy to have around! She followed us everywhere and ended up in the background of most of the pictures!

I hope you enjoy looking at these engagement pictures as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

Giving up a sister to gain a brother

Well, this past weekend my only sister got married. I can't tell you how difficult it is to let go of someone who's been your rock and role model throughout your entire life. I love her with all of my heart. The one thing that's keeping me sane at this moment in time is that she's  marrying an absolutely wonderful man who loves her more than his own life. To see him look at her is to see what love really is. He's the quiet type of guy who you can never quite tell if he's enjoying himself...until she walks in the room. Then he glows. All of this to say...I haven't really lost a sister (aside from the fact that their house is literally 2 miles from mine), but I've gained a brother. A brother who is incredibly kind to my family as well as myself. Who will take care of my sister until the day she dies. That's all I could really ask for :)

I took her engagements as well as her bridals and let me say...this girl is gorgeous. I don't care if you think I'm biased because she's my sister...she's stunning. Would you like to see some of her bridals? Well okay if you insist ;) Enjoy!

Steven and Sherrie tied the knot!

[gallery columns="1" orderby="title"] This couple decided to get married at Dresser Mansion. This was the first wedding I've shot at this location but I've heard GREAT things about it so I was very excited. Upon arriving I felt like I was stepping into a fairytale! With the twinkling lights, string quartet and beautiful architecture from the oil boom era, this bride's special day was absolutely magical.

Her dress was extremely traditional. She told me during our consultation how far from her personality that was. She knew it would shock Steven and boy was she right! They are that couple that you watch and just smile because they can't stop making silly faces at each other. Never serious, always having a great time together. Honestly, a match made in Heaven!

The look on Steven's face when he saw Sherrie walking down the aisle to become his bride? Well that said it all. Pure elation. Congratulations to the two of you and I hope you're enjoying the beautiful beach!
