I remember sitting in a pub with Carl Zoch a couple years ago. We were each nursing a pint and musing over our ideal wedding related shoot. The parameters were this…” If you could pick any place, any time and any couple to shoot what would that look like?” Carl’s included tattoos, longboards and some other stuff. I wasn’t really listening because I was day dreaming about this shoot. Jordan and Helen are a blast. Nantucket is charming and the sailing vessel Endeavor….don’t get me started.

I can’t wait to work their wedding this summer with Lindsay Gibson.  

to life!

I met Heather and AJ way back at Kyle and Nikki’s wedding a few years ago. It’s always an honor when our clients are happy enough to send their friends our way! They were great sports when the weather turned cold. You can’t even tell by the look on Heather’s face that it was near freezing! Can’t wait for their wedding!

Just realized I haven’t shared some of my favorite engagement shoots from last year. These two were a blast. We may have shared a PBR during this shoot. Good thing there is no behind the scenes proof.

I’ll likely have a giant post from Vinny & Micaela’s wedding sometime soon. It was pretty incredible. Until then…

What can I say about these two… Kris is a wonderfully sweet and talented photographer here in OKC. She interned for us a couple years ago and I’ve had respect for her and her work ever since. Have you ever met someone and asked yourself “How can they really be THAT nice?” Thats Kris. Zach is quite a stand up guy as well. He’ll be Dr. Smith soon as well. The world will be a little safer then. I’m lucky to have been able to get to know these two. I’ll be sure to post their wedding photos and movie as well. Maybe this winter when work slows down a bit.

Spencer and Carri ….where do I start? She’s a model, Brides of Oklahoma Magazine Exec and fashionista. He’s a political consultant, standup comic and actor. They’re a blast to hang out with together; nonstop laughs. This was one of those sessions that I didn’t want to end. When we were done I felt like asking them “So…can I see you again?” I’m sure everyone wants to be friends with them!  

This session was awhile ago, but I hope to share their wedding soon. We’re in the middle of wedding season, so don’t hold me to that…

We were delighted to visit Jesse and Stacy in upstate New York to shoot these engagement photos at the incredible restaurant and farm Blue Hill at Stone Barns. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Jesse and Stacy have a lot of memorable dining experiences there and share a love for their “farm to table” model. It was a great session, and we really enjoyed our time hanging out with them. Working through these photos really makes me miss that area, especially in the Oklahoma summer. I’ll be sharing their Manhattan wedding day images soon. Check back!

So, another engagement session finally gets to see the light of day. I think I may have brought this one out because subconsciously I wanted to see the lake when it was full. You’ve prpbably heard me bemoan Oklahoma’s drought via twitter. I find it ironic that we spent 8 months restoring a boat and haven’t the water to sail it in. Join me in prayers for rain and the occasional rain dance.

Brittany and Randy killed it. They’re a blast! Randy also shares a love for sailing so I see some evenings aboard with these two in the future!

As promised, just few of my favorites from Garrett and Kira’s wedding last summer. They were married at McFarland Methodist Church in Norman, OK. This was my first time to shoot a wedding there and I was excited about all the awesome historic windows. As a photographer, I’m always looking for cool windows that give off distinctive and unique light patterns. Old windows are the best. The different shapes and old glass make for interesting light. I’m looking forward to shooting there again this year!

Two posts in one day, time for a nap.

I thought I’d do a 2 part post this week that shows some our work from an engagement session and the wedding day from the same couple. Since most of our clients book us for engagement portraits and wedding day coverage, I thought it may be something worth putting up at the same time.

I enjoy shooting weddings and engagement sessions equally, but for very different reasons. We look at the engagement session as a “get to know you” kinda thing. I get to hear stories and I always walk away feeling like I’ve met new friends. On the wedding day I’m able to take a more artistic, documentary approach. It’s about watching, finding light and interpretation.

Two very different approaches that yield, hopefully, something my clients will cherish for generations. So, here are a handful of photos and an engagement story film we shot with Garrett and Kira. I’ll post the same from their wedding as soon as I can get them all in order. Enjoy!

If you visit the blog often, you know the story. I’m perpetually behind on posting my work. Call it a new years resolution, but I’m doing my best to keep up with it this year. 

With that said, here are a few images from Kylan and Dana’s engagement session. This was a sunrise shoot we did before they had to fly back to Utah. Morning light is just as nice as sunset. It’s just, you know, earlier.

If these two look familiar, it’s because you’ve seen them here before. I blogged a couple of shots in a preview of their session last year. Since their wedding is coming up really soon, it’s high time to show them off again. Jenny is the funny, bubbly type and Matt is real life fighter pilot for the Royal Air Force. Yea, awesome I know.  They’re such a warm and open couple, we shared a good two hours of awesome conversation during this session. I love it when that happens! I also just found out that I’ll be shooting their big day with my friends and awesome clients Carpe Diem Video Productions. That qualifies as icing on the cake in my book!

My favorite part about engagement sessions is getting to know my clients a little better. It’s always nice to chat and swap stories while we’re shooting. It was awesome spending some time with Jamie and Jessica and getting to hear their story, they have a natural feeling about them, which makes for great portraits! I’m really looking forward to their wedding!

I’ve been super excited to release this little highlight video that Andrew from Smith Pixels put together for me. He did such a good job, he’s got some serious video mojo! We had a great time working together. Infact, we work so well togehter we’re now offering a combined wedding package. Josh and Andrew, teamed up to for the most excellent and awesome wedding coverage in history!!
Anyway, on to the video. Check it out!

I also added a new gallery on the website where you can check out more of this session. Jared and Lauren a pretty much famous now. I guess they need a combined name like “Jardlen”. See more from their session here!

These two are possibly the most relaxed couple I’ve ever shot. They’re chill…as you can see. We had fun walking around Edmond looking for good light!

Can you really call it a preview when you post 4 photos you ask…Yes, yes I can, it’s my blog right. When you take into consideration how lucky we got with this light and the ridiculous amount of photos I took, this is only a glimpse. This was the last of three locations from their session, we though we were driving into a crazy storm when the clouds opened up Jared and Lauren turned on the awesome. You’ll be seeing more of these two cats, thats for sure!

I first met William & Hanieh at a wedding I shot last year and secretly hoped they’d hit me up for their wedding. Well, they did! Their wedding is going to be a blast! Heres a few of my favorites from their engagement session a couple months ago.
-to life!

We hit if off immediately when they brought their Weim. It’s strange, Ringo does the exact same thing! D3I_6127 willhan23 D3I_6404D3I_7414 willhan2up D3I_7520 D3I_7433 D3I_7575 D3I_7682
