Life through a lens

Tahlequah Grace Baptist Wedding: Mike + Jessica

Mike and Jess have been long time friends of my husband and I, so when they asked me to shoot their wedding, I couldn’t have been more excited!  They are two of the kindest, humblest, most caring people I know, and them together = beautiful.  They met while going to church, and over the course of about a year, became really good friends.  During this time Matt and I would separately give each of them a hard time about who they liked, and even joked with them about each other.  Though they would never admit it to us, they had both been praying about the other for almost a year!  Then FINALLY, Mike asked Jessica’s dad for permission to court his daughter, and with his blessing, they began a relationship.  Several months later, Mike proposed in the very church they had met in and still attend.

Mike and Jess, your wedding was beautiful and full of so much love and laughter.  I’m so glad I got to be a part of your day by capturing all the little moments in photos : )  So, here are the favorites…

Jessica looked radiant as she got ready in a funny old shirt she made while in highschool..

I absolutely loved Jessica’s lacy dress! The details were incredible..

Loved this moment between Jessica and her long time BFF, Keisha..

Some incredible light to go with a beautiful couple..


Unbeknownst to their friends and family, Mike and Jess had been practicing for a choreographed first dance for weeks.  It was incredible and so fun to watch!
