Katie + Chris : Montana Wedding Photographer

Katie worked with me about 10 years ago. She was in college at OSU and was an intern at the mental health center where I worked. She babysat for my kids, even spending the night with them when Brad and I were out of town for several days. If I’d had a kid when I was like 13, it would have been Katie. She became like a member of our family.

We kept in touch over the years and when she got engaged she reached out to see if I would be willing to travel to Montana to take her wedding photos.

Um…Y E S

Katie, you couldn’t have picked a better husband or planned a better wedding. Seriously. Katie’s 5 brothers collectively walked her down the aisle. There was dancing and laughing and enjoying it ALL the entire weekend. Huckleberry Ice Cream sandwiches instead of a cake? Yes please. Heartfelt toasts from several siblings, although I’m pretty sure everyone there would have stood up to toast this amazing bride and groom if they’d had the chance.

I have too many “favorites” to share and at least this many other faves that I decided not to. The setting, the people…the whole thing was truly magical.

Congratulations dear sweet Katie. Chris, you struck gold! (Katie, you did pretty darn for well too. I like him a LOT! ;) )

Miranda and Taylor: Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

With my kids all grown up or grown enough that they are doing their own thing, my husband Brad has officially become my second shooter/assistant for weddings.  We shot two together this summer and it was so much fun.  Brad keeps me on track the whole day and makes sure I have everything I need.  He tells me he loves watching me do my thing gets me drink refills throughout the reception so that I don’t melt.  I loved having my kids help when I first started but I’m kinda thinking I should have taught Brad long ago.  What a guy!

Our first wedding was in Jay, Oklahoma this June.  Actually, it was just outside of Jay on Miranda’s family land.  They transformed the area with white painted church pews, twinkle lights and tons of greenery and flowers.  It was magical.  Hot, but magical! :)   We loved meeting and spending time with both Miranda and Taylor’s families.  There was so much love there!

Love you guys, thank you so much for letting us capture this chapter of your lives.  We can’t wait to see where the future takes you!

Tori + Chandler = Rogers : Stillwater Oklahoma Wedding Photographer

Are you ready? Because there are a LOT of pictures from this wedding. There were just too many to narrow down. In fact, I would have included more but I had to stop at some point. ;)

Tori and Chandler, you are amazing. I have absolutely loved being a part of this season with you two. I wish you guys every happiness in the years to come!

So, I actually work with Tori’s Mom.  When she told me that Tori and Chandler were getting married at their house and that Tori’s Daddy was going to build a gazebo, I had a vision in my mind of how wonderful it would be.  Um.  Let me tell you about Tori’s Daddy.  He loves this girl and only the best is good enough.  While shooting bridal party pictures, I noticed this in the slab of the “gazebo”.  Tori and Chan’s hand prints along with their wedding date, to be there for years and years just like their love.  There’s a chance I teared up when I saw this.  Just sayin’.


A father-daughter first sight always gets me.  This one is no different.  Can’t you just feel the love and pride coming from Dad’s face as he sees his baby girl as a bride!


Oh hey there handsome.  Check out that jaw line y’all.  Also, my step-daddy had a big dimple in his chin so I’m a sucker for that.  Good lookin’, hilarious, sensitive AND he loves Jesus.  Tori, good catch!


Don’t worry, Chandler got a pretty amazing catch himself.  Would you just LOOK at this stunning bride.  Tori is one of the sweetest, most genuine people I know.  She is beautiful inside and out.

When she put her wedding dress on I’m pretty sure I had an audible gasp.  I mean, would you just look at her?!


And then…this happened.  Eli snapped this shot of Chandler waiting for Tori to arrive for their first sight.



Followed by this gorgeous girl as Chandler turned around and saw her for the first time on their wedding day.


His reaction is among the favorites I’ve shot.  Tears.  Having to bend over and catch his breath.  More tears.  This is how a man should always look at his bride.


I can’t.  I would photograph these two every day if I could!


I have to just say that as soon as that tall guy came over I immediately said, “Oh my gosh.  What’s up young Elvis?!”

Apparently  no one has EVER told him that he looks like Elvis and I’m wondering if he lives in a hole in the ground because HELLO!

Like, I feel like if his career of choice doesn’t work out he could probs move to Vegas and make some good money.  Right?


These two nearly stole the show.  Aren’t the adorable?!


Oh Chandler.  Sigh.  Just look how excited he is!


That’s little Tori in the framed photo.  LOVE.


This is the part when the bridal party gathers after the ceremony and Tori and Chandler exchange rings because when they did it during the ceremony…there were no actual rings.

It’s fine.  It worked out.  AND I was able to get these shots of them REALLY putting their rings on.


The whole week prior to the ceremony there was like a 100% chance of rain.  It turned out to be a gorgeous night.



Did I mention how fun these two are?  Ha!  I love you guys!
