Aaron & Rosa | Guthrie Engagement Photography

It feels so good…to be blogging an engagement session! I think I’ve been going through withdrawal, lol. My second favourite thing to shooting couples, is sharing their story and some beautiful photos of them. Oh this session has everything that I long for…a couple so madly in love, a fun location and lots of laughing. I had been looking forward to this session for some time because if you know Aaron and Rosa, you know that that you are in for a fun day with high spirits. Rosa loves everything vintage so Downtown Guthrie was the obvious choice.

Aaron was born in Canada while Rosa was born in Indonesia. They grew up worlds apart and now find themselves happily together in Oklahoma. A strikingly similar story to our own. ♥ Oklahoma seems to be the crossroads between Canada and Asia, lol. They travelled far to be together and and have many adventures ahead. We were so happy to find a little patch of spring in the center of town. A little bit of happiness that is soon to grow and spread just like the love of these two.

A Year of Love ~ 2013

One of my favourite things about New Year’s is getting to reflect on all the memories, friends made, and even the challenges of the last 365 days. And better yet all the exciting opportunities in the coming year! This is the time of year that we take a digital and mental inventory and reset ourselves and our business for a greater better year. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that we had such a great time meeting and shooting new clients this year and I thought it would be fun to post a snapshot of this year’s work. Thank you for making us a part of this happy time in your life! And we’re so excited thinking about the upcoming weddings from our engaged couples. I hope you all had a fulfilling year and head fearlessly into the new one. Happy New Year!

Brent & Rachel | Tulsa Engagement Photography

I love an urban e-session and I love these two! There’s really nothing not to love except that this is our last engagement session of the year. We were lucky to catch the last bout of nice weather before winter butted in and I can’t think of a better couple to wrap up the fall season with. Brent and Rachel are one calm, cool, and collected couple that are super sweet to each other. And I think one of the best things about these two is how laid back they are as they enjoyed a nice afternoon in Tulsa. As fate would have it, Brent and Rachel attended the same high school together in Tulsa but their stories were not meant to intertwine ’til a bit later. But they have many fond memories together in the city including concerts at the Cain’s Ballroom.

Rachel is actually an aspiring photographer and on their anniversary Brent wanted to surprise her with a brand new DSLR. {I can’t think of a better anniversary gift by the way!} Unfortunately, the camera wasn’t the one she had been dreaming about. If you are a photographer, you will understand lol. Anyway, being the awesome boyfriend that he is, Brent planned an even better gift. He exchanged the camera and used it to take a photo to surprise her with. He prepared the camera, framed the photo, and planned a trip to a park in Tulsa. He presented Rachel with her gift and to her surprise the photo was their three dogs wearing the signs “please”, “say”, and “yes”. Isn’t that freaking awesome?! Brent promptly knelt down and asked her to marry him. She said “Yes!” of course.

Whit & Lacey | Tulsa Engagement Photography

Whit and Lacey both attended OSU but they actually first met in Tulsa, OK and have many fond memories in the city. So it was their idea that we would spend the afternoon visiting some of their favourite places for their engagement session starting at the hip Phoenix coffee shop. I love their outfits, the locations, and they have the best attitudes. It was such a blast shooting and capturing their love in this urban e-session.

When the big day finally came when Whit knew he would pop the question, he had planned it all out in his head. He would take her out to a special spot by Grand Lake and get down on one knee. But he soon realized that it was pouring rain and he needed a Plan B. So he made reservations for a private room at a nearby restaurant and set up a second surprise. As they waited for their drinks Whit pulled out the ring and asked Lacey to marry him. She said ‘Yes!’ of course. But the surprise didn’t end there, for he had also asked their family to wait for them on the patio so that they could all celebrate together.

Brett & Callan | Oklahoma Engagement Photography

Listening to their story, I thought I was hearing the makings of a romantic comedy, LOL. Brett and Callan are both architecture students, which is actually how they first met. Eventually they both ended up attending a study abroad opportunity in Paris, France. During the trip they traversed the city sketching and making notes on many of the architecture wonders. One day, they made it over to the Arc de Triomphe, and they were spending the day drawing in their books as usual. It was at the top of this famous monument that Brett knew that the perfect moment had come. As the Eiffel Tower soared in the distance, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said ‘Yes!’ of course.

These two lovebirds make such a cute couple and when you meet them you realize that they are so perfect together. They have many loves in common and the newest one is the piano. Callan is a practiced pianist and Brett is learning with her help.

You would never guess from the smiles, laughter, and love for eachother that it was actually a pretty gloomy day. I’m so so excited for their wedding next year because it’s going to be at this very cabin. I’m hoping they luck out with the weather like we did for their e-session so that they can wed under these beautiful old trees. I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it!

Cole & Kari | Stillwater Engagement Photography

When we first met Cole and Kari we immediately knew that these were our type of clients. I’m sure we talked their ear off but we just had so much fun hanging out with them. They are a totally down-to-earth couple that always manages to keep the mood light, epecially Cole, which we found out at their engagement session here in Stillwater. He is by far the funniest guy we’ve shot this year. There was so much love and laughter during their session, even I was cracking up!

Cole and Kari both attended OSU and had a similar circle of friends. So before even getting together they knew of each other. But what they didn’t know is that they actually attended the same church. One day, in church, they turned around to greet those around them like they normally do and immediately recognized one another. God had brought them together and they’ve been inseparable ever since!

It was so fun listening to Cole tell the story of the proposal. He asked Kari to have dinner with him…at a very specific time. You see, his plan had to be timed just right because he needed some help setting it up while they had dinner. Kari felt like something was a bit off since Cole was specifying times down to the minute. She thought it was funny but didn’t think much of it. He IS an electrical engineer. Dinner was pleasant and afterward they headed out for a ‘surprise’. I’ve heard of many crazy proposal stories but Cole did the sweetest thing. He took her to where everything began…church. As Kari walked in ‘God Gave Me You’ played over the speakers and Cole left the message “Kari, God gave me you. Love, Cole’ on the large stage screen. The church was dim except for a spotlight shining on the aisle where they first met with Cole down on one knee. He asked her to marry him and she said ‘Yes!’.

Brent & Rachel | Tulsa Engagement Photography

Brent and Rachel love the atmosphere, feel and life created by a historic downtown. So it was obvious that we should capture their love for each other simply walking around downtown Tulsa. Plus they have so many great memories here. I love the smiles on these two!

Jacob & Carolyn | Tulsa Engagement Photography

Jacob and Carolyn look like a young, fun and kind-hearted couple that you would like the be friends with. The cool thing is that they totally are! Photographing the afternoon with them at Camp Loughridge was an absolute treat and it definitely helps that they look so great together. These two met 5 years ago while working at the same restaurant and have been inseparable ever since. And just this past July on the anniversary of the day they first met Jacob popped the question. A guy that can remember dates like that is a true catch! He convinced Carolyn to take a walk with him at a local park in Tulsa which wasn’t out of the norm, so Carolyn didn’t expect what was about to come. As they neared an area by a creek Jacob couldn’t wait any longer and asked Carolyn to marry him. He said that he was so nervous that he forgot to kneel {so sweet!} and she said ‘Yes!’ of course.

Jake & Emily | Stillwater Engagement Photography

We first met Jake and Emily last year when Emily was a bridesmaid for a wedding we were shooting. When she told me she was engaged, I got so excited because she was so pretty and Jake is such a funny guy. But I tried to hold my elatement since she said they were waiting for her to finish school first. So when she sent me a message that they had set a date and wanted to talk photography I just about jumped off my seat!

Truthfully, when they first told me that they had an old vintage truck for their session, I didn’t think much of it. I knew that Jake & Emily wouldn’t need help from props or locations since they have so much life and energy alone. So you can imagine our expressions when we saw this beautiful and absolutely perfect blue 1950s international pickup truck. I love these two and these photos with their truck!
