Destination | A Modern, Glass Chapel Wedding for OK Lovebirds

Last month I traveled to my hometown of Tulsa, OK to shoot a wedding in the very venue I was married in nearly two years prior; a gorgeous, modern glass chapel in Broken Arrow. I may be a little biased but this wedding was seriously one the most beautiful I’ve ever shot. I can’t get over it. Alex and Cody were such a cool and gorgeous couple. I knew I liked them the first time we spoke on video chat and they introduced me to their cats. Ya’ll know how I feel about cats. Unfortunately, they didn’t have a cool cat cake topper like I did. (Yes, I’m 100% serious.)

These guys got so lucky with the crazy Spring weather that frequently occurs in the area at this time of year. That morning I was awoken by the not so soothing sound of tornado sirens. Around noon, I had to run to a Target to purchase some rain boots because I hadn’t thought it pack mine, and the rain was coming down so hard there was no way I could wear my flats. Luckily in spite of the terrible flooding and tornadoes, the bad weather managed to clear out just in time for the ceremony. During their portrait session we were even lucky enough to see the sun break through the clouds for a few brief moments. Overall this day was absolutely magical. It made me want to plan my wedding here all over again.

Destination | Romance and Light in Rocky Mountain National Park

Naturally, the one uncomfortably cold day on my week long trip to Colorado was this one. While the rest of the Midwest was essentially frozen alive, I was sweating out at Garden of the Gods and walking around downtown Estes Park wearing nothing but an over-sized sweater. Of course the cold would catch up to me the day of my shoot. As Juliet and Connor removed their warm winter coats I told them to think warm thoughts and assured them I’d be quick. Dressed in about four layers myself, looking like the Michelin Man’s artist cousin, I somehow managed to successfully photograph these two. They, on the other hand, made the cold seem like nothing.

Juliet and Connor were total troupers and absolutely wonderful in front of the camera. I wasn’t too worried about our shoot knowing Connor was a photographer himself. Having both lived in the same small Oklahoma town, I’d been creeping on his work since a friend of mine had a brief crush on him in high school. I remember her scrolling through his MySpace pictures until she came across one of his photography albums. I lived in another town at that point so I never officially met him, but his work caught my attention and I added him on social media. For the last decade he was a random friend on Facebook that I’d like his photography once in awhile. By the time my trip to Colorado was planned, I’d observed that he and Juliet had moved out to Denver last summer. I immediately reached out and our date was set!

Both myself and my mom (who I brought along for the ride) were so floored by their easy going attitudes and warm nature, especially considering the chilly temperatures. They were naturals in front of the camera, but beyond that they engaged us both in conversation, asking us about our trip, lives, ect. They were so nice and fun to work with, and even recommended us a restaurant a couple hours after the shoot. We showed up there and they were still finishing up so they joined us at our table while we waited for our food. I know this entire post was supposed to be about how beautiful the mountains were and trust me, they were, but I think it’s important to realize that if you vibe with your clients you can shoot them anywhere and have a great time. Of course I’m overjoyed at the opportunity to shoot in Colorado, and please please please someone take me back! Until then, I’ll just be drooling over the gorgeous images below.

Destination | A St Louis Engagement in Stunning Forest Park

I had just been bragging to a client the other day that I felt so lucky this year because I had yet to shoot in freezing cold weather. All of my weddings and lifestyle shoots had been indoors, and I’d be fortunate enough to have had nice weather for all of my couples shoots. So naturally the engagement I traveled 3+ hours to photograph was absolutely freezing.

You all should applaud Lindsay and Greg’s dedication to getting these photos because O.M.G it was cold one, and they were the ones lacking coats. They were so much fun to work with though; very easy to photograph and up for whatever weird instruction I through out. I’m elated to shoot their wedding later this year, especially after getting to finally meet them in person after several months of planning. They also choose an insanely beautiful location. St Louis peeps will recognize this as the very well known Forest Park, but I’d never heard of it prior to scheduling this shoot. I was super excited about it, particularly The Jewel Box which just might be the most interesting conservatory I’ve ever seen. Still crying we couldn’t go inside though….
