High winds didn't stop these two! Even though the balloons couldn't fly, love lifted these two up! Guy was just the right amount of nervous and excited and Maredith was caught COMPLETELY by surprise! He even wrote a song and sang in front of a crowd of strangers (word got around a proposal was happening at the Tulsa Balloon Festival!). It was such a pleasure capturing this moment for these two. Video coming soon!
Oh, wow! Did we have fun at this wedding!!!!!! Thank you so much to Jennifer, Michael, and family, who made us feel so welcome. And, our favorite OKC band, Drive, was there! Not to mention HolliB Photography and co and Camden of Emerson Events! We seriously love working with this crew!
And, just like that, the 2016 wedding season begins!
I love that in our business you never know what is around the corner. We have some brides book almost two years in advance, and then, other times, you have someone call you only a handful of days before their 'big day.' This was one of those events. Some people decide last minute they want a wedding videographer, and...wow, are we glad these two did!
This was a wedding for the books! Every little detail of the day was beautifully designed and every word, song, and message of their ceremony was perfectly crafted. Due to the short time between booking and the actual wedding, we did not meet the couple before their wedding day, but, as soon as we arrived, we felt 'right at home' with this crew. Julie and Carla, it is undeniably apparent you are surrounded by an amazing group of family and friends. It was truly an honor to be a fly on the wall (with cameras, of course) for your special day.
Seize the 'good stuff,'
Lauren + Jared

Isn't this bride radiant!?!??? And be sure to check out her dress... it was her grandmother's dress and her mother wore it too. Love! I loved meeting with this bride and her mother. They were very sweet and their kindness and hospitality shine through. A big thank you to Randy Coleman for his referral. He is an amazing, fun photographer. We love working with him. http://www.randycolemanphotography.com/blog/tiffany-brett-oklahoma-wedding-photographer-oak-tree-golf-and-country-club/
Well, Jared did it again with his editing magic! This just goes to show we don't need to be at your event all day to get great footage you will cherish. This video represents five hours of coverage.
This beautiful couple and their gorgeous wedding day have been on my mind lately since I recently met with Taylor's twin (and I mean tw-win), Jordan and his seriously adorable (and fellow Chi Omega) Kylie. I am soooooo excited about this wedding! Jared had a great time filming this one with our friend and college, photographer Randy Coleman. I mean, seriously, how attractive is this couple, right? And so obviously in love. Congrats Brene' and Taylor! And thank you for having us as part of your wedding day.
Well, it is that time of year! Love is in the air. Seems like every day my facebook page blows up with another couple's engagement. And, as a wedding professional, I have to say, I LOVE it. The inquiries are rolling in and we are quickly booking our 2015 season... 2015. That sounds crazy, right? Crazy as in, when I was a child I really thought I would have a hover board like Marty McFly. But, alas, I have a mini-van. (Jared says it is a sexy, soccer mom SUV-Minivan hybrid, but lets call a spade a spade, you know?)
Well, as I have been meeting brides this season a question that often arises is "Can I get all I want out of the basic package?" And, in most cases, the answer is yes. So, here is an example of a wedding where the basic package was the perfect amount of coverage...And, obviously, Jared nailed it.
Hey guys! It's Lauren. Jared is in full swing of being a high school teacher and grading papers, so I have taken over the correspondence part of the business, meeting with the clients and handling the paperwork. In a way, this is a reversion back to the way we used to do things, before I got bogged down with grad school. Anyway, it has been really fun! I love meeting with potential brides and discussing all the details of their wedding day!
Our little boy Jude turns 3 this week! I simply cannot believe it. It seems like only yesterday Jared and I were getting married and considering what it would be like to be parents one day. Now we are blessed with two crazy boys who fill our life with love, laughter, oftentimes frustration, and fun. And between all that, we also film people's weddings!
Thank you to Rylee and Travis for having us as part of your wedding day. Wow! You have a TON of family and friends. This was a lively and cheerful crowd, and it was so evident how excited everyone was for the couple. I love the love in this one. (And, I got to go to Enid for the first time... I do love seeing every corner of this state!) Enjoy!
My dear friends Jacqueline and Keystone are getting ready to have a baby, and Jared and I could not be more excited. We simply LOVE these two. We actually left our house on a Saturday night...yes, babysitter and all... and shared an evening with these two and some other friends and new acquaintances, to celebrate the newest member of their family, due to be arriving before we know it.
As we celebrate, I cannot help but to be reminded how much fun this wedding was and how evident Jacqueline and Keystone's connection is. Their love is bright. And it is wonderful to be near it. So, in honor of these two (who always have us laughing) I thought I would post this video. I know it is a long video, but the dancing at the end is for sure worth a viewing. (And there are several cameo shots by yours truly- wink)
Thanks for visiting our new webpage! It is only fitting to blog this first wedding of 2014 on our new blog page with such an amazing couple. You can see from this video this bride and groom are so sincere. I love the groom's reaction when he reads the letter from his bride.
Thank you to Lauren and Bray for having us be a part of your big day. We really enjoyed meeting your family and friends. This was a TRULEY fun wedding. (As evidenced by this video.) Enjoy!
