About a year ago now, I shot this cute little engagement session with Tyler and Vicky. Back then, I kind of knew Tyler through my husband Matt, and just barely knew Vicky because she played soccer at NSU. Since then, Matt and I moved down to the north Dallas area just 20 minutes from where Tyler and Vicky lived and they have become some of our funnest, closest friends here. Over the last 9 months, we’ve hung out with them numerous times and they even visited us in the hospital when sweet little Naomi was born. Having become such good friends, I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding last October! Vicky had all along been sharing with me all the fun details about their day and I was so excited to get to be a part of it all. T & V – I absolutely love hanging out with you two! You all complement each other so well and your wedding day was nothing short of amazing and beautiful, not to mention extremely fun! Seriously, BEST. WEDDING. PARTY. EVER. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard shooting the wedding party portraits before! So glad we’ve become such good friends :) Enjoy the favorites from your day!
This is Tyler surprising Vicky with the stunning diamond wedding band..
Husband and Wife!
Funnest. Reception. EVER.
Kenzie and I go way back. All the way back to when she was born. I was there when my little sister came into this world. I don’t remember how I felt about it then (I was probably upset that I wouldn’t be an only child anymore. Can we say brat??) but I do know that I now love that I have 3 little sisters. I remember a time when we were both small that she would do anything I told her. That didn’t last all that long and she’s been completely independent since. Well, until Nathan came along in the 8th grade. I remember the night he asked her to “go out” with him (like 13 yr. olds can even go on dates) over AOL instant messenger. We were all (my mom, sisters, and I) standing around watching this middle school conversation happen. Then he typed “I love you”. I made fun of him (since I was so cool) and told Kenzie NOT to say it back, cause that would be stupid, right? Remember that independence? I think she thrives on disagreeing with me sometimes and doing the complete opposite :) So, it was no surprise that she typed it back. Well, almost 12 years later, after a few break ups and make ups (which is totally understandable when you start a relationship at the age of 13!), they are finally tying the knot! I was thrilled when Kenzie (the creative one of the family) asked me to take engagement photos! And, being so artsy, she also knew exactly what she wanted when it came to stylizing her photoshoot, which I absolutely loved!, but I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…
Love her creativity. Yes, she made these!
How bout’ a picnic in the woods?
They are so goofy together :) Welcome to the family, Nathan!
This little wedding happened back in June last year, and frankly, I forgot to get it up here on the blog. So here are my favorites from Cody and Lacey’s big day!
Remember Seth & Mandy? Well, a couple months back they finally tied the knot. Their day was beautiful and full of smiles. Seriously, one of the funnest (is that even a word?), laid back couples I’ve ever worked with. Thank you guys for putting your complete trust in me for all your photos. You and your families ROCK! Here are my favorites from their day…
Seth and Mandy opted to see each other before the ceremony and planned in lots of time for photos of just the two of them…
Michael and Lauren go way back. I mean, waaaaay back. To, like, elementary school. He played soccer with her older brother all the way through high school, but as far as Lauren was concerned, boys were gross. And especially her brother’s friends. It wasn’t until they reconnected during college at the University of Tulsa that they saw something special in each other. For Lauren, all of a sudden Michael had become this tall, dark, and handsome guy she couldn’t take her eyes off of. And according to Michael, seeing Lauren in a TU cheerleading uniform was all it took. Oh, and he liked the fact that she loved animals :). After dating for 4.5 years, they finally said ”I do” in front of their closest friends and family at the beautiful McBirney Mansion in Tulsa. Thank you all so much for allowing me to capture one of the best days of your lives! Enjoy the favorites… Lauren, you look stunning in this set! Michael and Lauren were all smiles for their first look! And even though it was blazing hot outside, we got some great shots of just the two of them.. Oh my goodness, the ring bearer and flower girl were just too cute! One of Lauren’s brothers played and sang as their father walked her down the aisle…how sweet is that?! Love this photo of them after they are announced husband and wife!
