Brittany Abernathy | Lifestyle Session

If you know me, you know I love horses. I grew up around them and I've been horse crazy since I could walk! So when Brittany contacted me for a session with her horse, Sandman, I was instantly excited and couldn't wait to get started.

We had to chase the elusive sun, but I think we still captured that fresh, autumn glow!

What a sweet horse! He took incredible care of his best friend, who was nervous to ride bareback AND in a dress. Brittany, you did amazing, and I am so glad you chose me to capture the essence of your bond with your sweet boy!

PS: Check out the very last photo for a hilarious blooper. Brittany was a bit nervous the first time I asked her to lope, and she looked like someone straight out of Braveheart! I even added a sword for hilarious effect. ;)

Jacob and Alia | Engagement Portraits

Alia and Jacob are one of the sweetest couples I've ever had the privilege of meeting! Alia wanted a sunset session, but her time in Oklahoma City was limited and the forecast showed rain this particular evening. So rather than risking it, we decided to shoot earlier and avoid the rain (but my goodness, was it hot outside!).

I have to say, though, that the lighting worked in our favor and turned out beautifully. Their session was at Bluff Creek Park, where we utilized different trails and paths. The trees provided just the right amount of shade while still filtering light through. I instructed them to do a lot of silly things that made them laugh, and the end result was totally worth it!

Congratulations, Alia and Jacob, and your engagement. I wish you all the best in your coming marriage!

Heidi and Jeff Engagement Session

Oh. My. Gosh. I had SO much fun with this couple! Their dynamic is so special and endearing. They know how to be silly and laugh, and you can also see how deeply they love each other. We started our session at the Devon Tower in Oklahoma City, and then meandered over to the Myriad Botanical Gardens for some shots with gorgeous tropical backdrops and the Crystal Bridge. After that, we went to Coffee Slingers and found the only open spot near a window (winning!), and enjoyed some delicious drinks. Finally, we went to the Sheraton parking garage for some rooftop JURASSIC PARK (!!!) shots with the city skyline in the background, just as it started to rain. It. Was. Awesome.

I will be photographing their wedding next April and I couldn't be more excited! Thank you for trusting me with capturing these memories for you, Heidi and Jeff! 

PS - I'm still laughing about the fact that you BOTH thought I said my book was called "Noodle." 

=D =D =D
