On Uber's Ice Cream Day, Oklahoma's own Gary Busey handed out ice cream to some lucky Uber users. This was a day to remember!

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!
Well, I had intended to post this last week, but that was before our family came down with some gnarly cold. Everyone was coughing and no one was sleeping. And, poor Jared, who had the shortest bought of it, got to play nurse-maid to everyone else. Anyway, one week and about 40 clorox wipes later, here we are.
Thank you again to Lauren and Matt! We soooo enjoyed working with you and your family! We wish you the best in all you do! May you have a long, happy marriage!
Seize the 'good stuff,'
Did you know Carpe Diem films proposals?!?? Well, we do! And, it is sooooo much fun! I love the planning, the surprise. The letter from Aaron to Elie's father, well....it will choke anyone up. We are so excited to be a part of this fun, adorable couple's upcoming nuptials in Dallas! And, it's right around the corner. So, in honor of all those Valentines proposals and all the love in the air this weekend... enjoy. - Lauren
As Jared and I were putting the finishing touches on Lauren and Matt's wedding video last night (I know, I know...it is a criminal offense to not watch the Superbowl... but, we are just not in to football. We did watch the final episode of The Knick, season 2...and... AH-MAZING...but, I digress), I was reminded how sweet and sincere their our story was.
I hope they look back on this video from time to time and are reminded of who they were when they got married...all the hope and joy and purpose and anticipation the beginning of a marriage brings.
I had such a wonderful time capturing this very large, very fun family. I hope you will enjoy this photos for years to come.
Wow! This was a busy, busy fall for us. We are hustling over here to get these videos out and to our brides for the holidays. Can't believe 2015 is almost wrapping up....just one more wedding Saturday for Carpe Diem until 2016. Thank you to all our brides for trusting us to preserve such an important day.
Now, on to Kaitlyn and Kyle. Seriously, I think I smiled the whole time I worked on this film. I just couldn't help it. This was SUCH a fun wedding and I LOVE how much these two love each other. Happy Turkey day to all of you!
Thank you to everyone for your kind words regarding the photos (published earlier) of Hopie's Birth Story. I've never really considered myself much of a photographer; I just like taking photos of my kids...but, obviously, photography and videography share a basic core knowledge about using light and sharing a narrative. But, my medium of choice for birth story's is video, and, I think you will see why...

It has been such a wonderful, amazing experience to watch your journey to motherhood. When we first spoke over the phone about you taking on a part-time caregiver role for Jude and Harvey (in 2013 was it? Harvey was just 4 months old), you apologized for not being able to start right at 8am that first day, because you were seeing a fertility specialist. I have been praying for this day for you since that phone call, and here it is.
When I told Jared I had finally found childcare, he asked what I knew about you, this stranger coming into our home, and I told him you had an inner light that shined bright and strong, and that was all I needed.
My kids fell in love with you almost instantly, and your grace was a calming presence in our home. Thank you for loving my children. I say that knowing you now know, truly know, what it means to be apart from your baby for even just a few seconds, let alone a whole work day. I always felt comforted knowing they were with you. And the testament to your love in grace is that my children still ask for mommy, daddy, and you when they are upset.
I was so honored when you asked me to document your delivery, and when you look at these photos, I hope you will sometimes think about the smiles of the two little boys whose lives you shaped before you started you own family. I am forever indebted to you.
From one mother to another,
