Bobby and Cindy’s wonderful wedding portrait

Cindy is a friend of my wife’s, and it was fun to see the relationship between Cindy and Bobby bud and grow.  I opted not to photograph the wedding, but instead offered to take some nice wedding pictures of the two of them after the grand event.  I thought this would occur in one the neighboring wheat fields.  But the wedding day was gray and rainy so we retreated to the safety of the studio.  I love my studio space!  Unfettered by the constrains of weather, we were able to create some wonderful formal wedding pictures of the two of them.

Congratulations to Bobby and Cindy on their wedding.

DJ and Kristi tie the knot

I met DJ about 15 years ago photographing his sister’s wedding. He would become my #1 assistant for over 10 years. We have photographed hundreds of weddings in everything from freezing cold to broiling hot. He would move on from the assistants cor to devote weekends to building his house. I expected that after the house was built, he would put a ring on Kristi’s finger.

It is always fun photographing a wedding when you know the people involved. DJ’s had wisely built in some time for fun, creative photographs before we went to the reception. We wandered around the OU campus in some very warm weather taking some wonderful images of the two of them. Then off to the reception. It was fun and I was glad to see DJ and Kristi so happy.

Melissa and Ryan’s Wedding at Walnut Creek in Oklahoma City

What do you get when a theater performance major invites all her friends to her wedding reception? A fun party!

Melissa and Ryan were wonderful to work with and the wedding pictures were great. Walnut Creek wedding chapel in Oklahoma City is a great place for a wedding and and the staff was wonderful as always. And no, I did not add the orange sky to the photograph outdoor photograph. It is the lights of the city reflecting off the low clouds (8 second exposure – don’t try that without a good tripod….)

Jennifer Dragg and Austin Flores wedding at Coles Garden

Jennifer and Austin had a beautiful wedding at Coles Garden. The weather was a little warm, but tolerable. I loved the picture with the groomsmen and sunglasses. That’s attitude!

Rebekah Vermilion and Carl Coats

It’s always fun to photograph a wedding when you know the family.  Paul – Rebekah’s father – works with me on the A/V team at church.  I actually new a ring was coming before Rebekah!

The wedding was wonderful, but photographs we took between the ceremony and the reception were priceless.  We had a some extra time from when we left the church before we needed to be at the Embassy Suites, so we met the couple at OU for some great pictures.  To top it off, there was a fantastic sunset late in the reception that we captured just outside the hotel with the couple.

It was a blast, and the photographs were wonderful.

Adena and Matt’s wedding at Coles Garden

It thoroughly enjoyed working with Adena and Matt.  A wonderful, fun couple.

Outdoor weddings are always somewhat of a gamble in this area.   On the day of their wedding, the thunder would roll and the rains could be seen threatening in the distance, but they stayed away and the wedding went off without a drop leaving us with some very dramatic clouds and a once in a lifetime sunset.

Every year I shoot for the “signature image” – an image that is so impressive that you just say “wow”.  An image that will be used in advertising materials and hang on the wall.  Adena’s wedding provided me with two signature images.

Courtney and Brett

Courtney and Brett were such a fun couple to photograph.  Their wedding was Crossings, which of course is wonderful place to have a wedding.  It was a perfect day for a perfect wedding.  The hardest part was deciding which ones to post here!
