Preston and Charisse seemed like they’d already been married for years when we first met them. Watching the way they interacted, you got the feeling that both of them were totally comfortable with one another and they played off each other’s strengths. It was very apparent that we were going to have a great time when the wedding day rolled around, and I wasn’t disappointed.
It was a day of firsts for us.
1. First time to shoot in Wynne, Arkansas.
2. First time to finish the wedding day while Trisha and I both wore shorts. (we were in a wheat field and it was hot)
3. First time to have the brake lights go out on our car while we were on the road. (that wasn’t too fun)
Charisse brought two dresses with her for her bridal portraits, because she wanted some non-traditional portraits in locations that she really didn’t care to wear her actual wedding dress. So, here are a few of her bridal portraits and a couple from their engagement session.
Preston’s groomsmen gave him one of the funniest gifts I’ve seen in a long time… possibly ever. A wedding night survival pack of sorts.

Once again, in order to catch up on my ever growing list of photo sessions and weddings that I need to blog, I’m going to start out with some of Sarah’s bridal portraits. My son, Conner, and I met Sarah, her mother and Scott’s mother at the Philbrook Musuem of Art for her bridal session. It had been years since I’d been to there, but it was just as beautiful as I had remembered. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the session.
When the day of the wedding came around I was finally able to meed Scott, the groom. I really enjoyed getting to spend the day with him and his groomsmen. Well, actually I enjoyed spending the day with the entire wedding party and their families. Trisha and I could not have asked to be treated any better, and by the end of the night we felt as if we’d spent the day with family.
One of the best things about their wedding was how free and fun they were. We were given access to every possible moment and their laughter seemed to never stop… and that made it a truly beautiful wedding.
Scott and Sarah wanted to take a few minutes to do some photos out on the golf course at Southern Hills Country Club, where the reception was being held. Thankfully the guys who were waiting in the tee box were very patient. I was afraid we’d find ourselves being pelted with golf balls, but we didn’t.

I recently ran into a client (friend), from last year, at a wedding in Tulsa and we got to talking about her bridal portraits. She asked if I could put her gallery back up … which wasn’t a problem… but while looking at her photos, I decided I would put a few of them up on the blog again. These were shot at Woodward Park in Tulsa, OK and the grounds surrounding the park.

Prior to shooting Jennifer’s bridal session, I’d only had contact with her by phone and email. When I finally met her in person, I felt as if we’d known one another for years. She has one of the most warm and genuine smiles I’ve seen. Actually, I had told her that the photo in her email signature always made me smile… and it still does. Anyway, we photographed her bridal portraits in and around downtown Tulsa a month or so prior to the wedding. We’ll start the post off with a few of my favorite shots from her session.
The wedding took place at Skelly Lodge, near Catoosa, Oklahoma. It was a beautiful setting for their wedding day. With a gorgeous view of the hills of Oklahoma, their ceremony could not have taken place in a better spot. Jimmy, the groom, is a baseball coach,,, and all his buddies were really a great group of guys to hang out with. It seems that they never stopped giving him grief throughout the day. Needless to say, I had a great time at the wedding,,,, except for my encounter with a four or five foot long black snake that was in the driveway when I went to get more equipment out of my car. That part I could do without.
Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding day.

Last year I photographed a wedding for David and Katherine in Little Rock. This April, I had the pleasure of seeing them at David’s sister’s wedding.
Patrick and Jill have already been written about on our old blog when we shot their engagement session. I’m posting a couple of their engagement photos here as well as a couple of her bridal portraits.
I absolutely love the church they were married in. The sanctuary really lends itself to awesome photographs. Combine the location with a great couple and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Having already met Jill’s family, I knew I would be treated like one of the bunch, and David’s side was just the same. I left the wedding feeling as if I really had spent the day with old friends.
The reception was non-stop. I’m amazed at how certain groups seem to have more energy than I can imagine. These guys never stopped dancing.
Anyway, here are some of my favorite shots from the day.
