Colton and Kate’s Winter Wedding at Sparrow

Colton and Kate were married January 2019 and we were fortunate to have a really pleasant, mild January day at Sparrow in Stillwater. For this blog post, I used the pictures the couple chose for their wedding album (plus a few more from the parent’s album), which was helpful in limiting my selections 🙂 It’s always hard for me to narrow down my favorites to share on a blog to represent the day, and I have not mastered “less is more” when it comes to pictures! Kate’s mom was one of my 5th grade teachers and I’ve known members of her extended family for many years, so it was really special to be able to photograph this day. Big congrats to this couple as they’ve recently celebrated their 1st anniversary 🙂 Thank you to Brittany Smith for 2nd shooting with me!

Jackelyn and Joshua’s October Wedding at the Dominion House in Guthrie

This month I have booked two weddings for October 2020 and immediately thought of the three beautiful weddings I shot this past October… none of which were blogged because life was just full. In fact, I only blogged 3 of 11 weddings in 2019, so as I have time I’m looking forward to adding the highlights of these special weddings to the blog. October is right up there with May and June for most popular months for weddings on my calendar. Jackelyn and Joshua were married at the Dominion House in Guthrie before their closest family and friends. I really, really enjoyed being around this couple. We got to work together for engagements, bridals and the wedding! From our first communications Jackelyn and I connected and I’m so thankful we got to work together. I will always remember how special it was to witness her first look with her groom and then her dad, and at the reception, the surprise dance with her step-dad. I loved that Jackelyn wanted to have pictures of guest reactions at the reception. So much real and sweet emotion on this beautiful day in October!!! Thank you to Emily Warwick for 2nd shooting with me.

Tori and Preston {Stillwater Engagement Session}

This fun, cute couple came to our house this week for their engagement session!! Luckily, this was two days before today’s snow. (Snow would be fun for a few pics, but glad we had the day we did February 3, 2020!) It was so nice to meet Tori and Preston, to hear about where they are from, what brought them to Stillwater and what they’ve got planned for their June wedding. Here’s a quick preview from their session:

Family Pictures

It was so much fun to do this session for Melissa and her beautiful girls!! Melissa and I went to school together in Stillwater but I hadn’t gotten to know her girls yet. So glad they are living here now!

Summer Family Portraits

Getting the family together at the end of the summer when one member comes to visit from out of state is a great time for pictures! Even if it ends up being a warm and humid day 🙂 I already knew these three kiddos from school but it was great to meet the rest of the crew!
