Yea for NYE! Jared and I have notoriously dull new years. There are many years we have been asleep before midnight. But, this year was a BLAST!!! We loved getting to know Kenneth and Nicole, and had sooooo much fun! We rung in the new year in the gorgeous presidential suite and its private rooftop balcony. We did the photos and video for this swanky affair. Video to come later.
I have known Katie since she was a baby...yes, a baby. As a friend of her older sister, I can remember going over to her house and seeing her in the little baby rock chair thing. And while I was always a little confused by the chaos of the four-kids-close-in-age galloway household (I am an only child), I cannot lie and say I wasn't a little jealous of the relationship Katie and her sister developed over the years.
Galloway family, thank you for trusting us to capture three incredible weddings for you. (You're next, Kevin!). We have loved every minute of it!
Katie and Baxter, wow! what incredible people you have surrounded yourself with. Your friends, family, and mentors are incredible and full of love and support for you. I know you will have a long and successful marriage! Congrats, again!
Did you know we offer video + photo services** for you big day?!? Well, neither did we! That is before these two. We had been talking about doing this for some time, but we had to find the right couple to take the leap. A big thank you goes out to Maredith and Guy for trusting us when we said we could do a good job. They took us at our word--not an easy task when it comes to your wedding.
But, I am so glad they did because we had the BEST BEST BEST time! Maredith and Guy, you have very fun, kind, welcoming, and generous friends/family. I couldn't help but smile as I looked through all these images today. There's just so much love there.
Best of luck to you two in all you do! I know you will have a long happy marriage filled with many blessings and much good fortune. Part 2 (video) to come soon. Stay tuned!
** We are only able to accept 3 video + photo clients a year-first come basis. But we are HAPPY to recommend our favorite photographers to you!
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!
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!
Ah, Spring! Is there any better time for family photos?!?? I say 'no.' I so enjoyed spending time with this sweet family. Liam is adorable! There was a campfire with a few remaining glowing embers, and Liam LOVED the smell! He kept sniffing the air! Carlton family, thank you for allowing me to capture a bit of your family life at this stage. It's a good stage. :-)
Seriously, this is one of the coolest things I get to do with my job as a 'record keeper.' I love to document the moment a mother holds her baby in her arms for the first time. The joy. The relief. So surreal. Sorry photographers, but photos just won't do it justice.
I loved Danielle since our very first meeting, where we discussed the many aspects of birth and motherhood over tea! And, let me tell you, this woman is STRONG. She planned for a natural birth and never once did she falter or say "I can't." As anyone who has been in labor knows, births don't always go as planned, but Danielle faced every moment with courage, conviction, and grace.
Thank you so much for trusting me to capture such an important moment. It was an honor.
Seize the 'good stuff,'
Oh, man! It was soooo much fun (and a tiny bit terrifying) to capture this special moment in Robert and Paige's life! Terrifying because you don't want to mess up!!! And, I have to say, (phew) these photos turned out great! I mean, how could they not?!?? Just look at how cute and in love these two are!
Robert worked some magic to get the key to the top of the midtown plaza building! And (so genius) had all their friends across the way on the rooftop bar, BosoNova! Anyway, congrats to these two and happy wedding planning!
Seize the 'good stuff,'
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!
What a totally fun couple this was! Seriously, check out their awesome dance moves. The stars aligned to give this couple the perfect cool weather day in December! What luck! And, it was so fun to see so many of our past brides at this wedding. It is the highest compliment when our clients refer us to their friends. Thank you, thank you. It means the world to us.
