What a day these two had?! Sometimes the groom is a little hesitant to get out on the dance floor but Matt and Hayley rocked the place! From air guitaring to Journey to belting notes from The Greatest Showman, these two had an incredible night. We also got to shoot with one of our favorite photographers Sarah Libby at the always beautiful Coles Garden. Enjoy!
We are wrapping up our last weddings of 2017! These two are absolutely adorable and we had such a fun time capturing the giddy energy they have for each other. Also, Kyle is a PHENOMENAL dancer! Lauren glipsed him for just a moment and walked over to me and said, "Oh this guy can dance." With slick moves on the floor and an appearance from Santa, this made for a fantastic day!
What a darling pair these two make! Seeing a family start brings us such joy and the look on Adam's daughter's face when she sees McKinlee in her dress is just the best! This was our first time shooting at the McGranahan Barn and it was just perfect! As some of you know, my wife has a borderline weird love for clouds...yes clouds...and to quote her, "Oh great clouds today!" We did just beat the storm that night and the two had the most epic sparkler exit to date with lightening cracking as they emerged (it was slightly terrifying but awesome!). Even though it was our first time working with photographer Morgan Gauntt, we had to get pretty close to stay dry under our solo umbrella!
We are so happy for the both of you and can't thank you enough for choosing us to capture your wedding! Enjoy!
seize the day-
It hard hard not to pick favorites with our couples but these two are clear front runners! The father of the bride had one of the best toasts I have ever heard and his reaction seeing Marni for the first time that day is priceless. We aspire to capture genuine emotions and moments when filming couples and Marni and Jacob made the job so easy. It is so evident how much these two care for one another and we couldn't be happier for them. Thank you both so much for choosing us! Enjoy!
seize the good stuff-
What a year for these two! It is going to be easy for these two Cubs fans to remember their first year of marriage! What a day we had with such a fantastic couple. With this being our seventh year as a business with over 200 weddings on the books, it would be hard to find a couple that had more genuine affection and downright giddiness for each other. They wrote their own vows, had very touching letters, and the groom even had hot air balloon socks harkening back to his proposal (which we filmed) at a hot air balloon festival! Just well done to these two. We couldn't be happier for this couple to have chosen us. Enjoy!
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!

Ah summer.... As the wife of a teacher with summers off, I must say it is a magical time when you catch up and wipe stuff off the to do list as your husband cooks dinner and does laundry. Yes, a magical time indeed.
I thought I would use my free time, as Jared is currently tinkering in our darkroom (previously known solely as the laundry room) to post some of my favorite shots from the last birth I filmed. I always snap a few pics too. I mean, why not! I'm there. I have a camera. And, I love to do it.
Thank you again to the Jacksons for trusting me to be a part of the birth of their first born! Congrats! Such a beautiful family, inside and out.
Happy 1 Month Anniversary to Jacy and Josh! We seriously had such a good time at this wedding! Not only are Jacy, Josh, their family, and friends so much fun, but we felt like we really knew Jacy and Josh going into the wedding because we had filmed an 'our story' for their rehearsal dinner and seen them dancing up a storm at other weddings we filmed.
We went out on a limb on this one and used the letters they wrote to each other, even though we had filmed them reading those letters just to put on their personal Blu-ray/DVD (and not for public sharing). The thing was, these letters were just soooooo good. We sent the draft to Jacy and Josh, and they approved!
Jacy and Josh, thank you again for choosing us to be a part of this journey with you. We enjoyed every party of it, right down to the limey. (Tastes like college :-) )

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,'
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.
