Shane and Heather King

Mother's Day weekend 2013 was the weekend Heather had planned on running in the Color Me Rad race with her girlfriends.  She was in Houston for work and was supposed to fly back to Oklahoma City but her flight was canceled.  Heather and her friends met up at Dan's anyway after the race to hang out; her friend Justin called and wanted to bring his brother Shane along.  

Six weeks later Shane worked up the nerve to ask Heather out for a first date and to say they hit it off would be a huge understatement!  January 17, 2015 was the day Shane and Heather professed their eternal love.   Here are a few photos from their special evening:

We have photographed weddings at Creekside on many occasions and it's always exciting to see how the couple will decorate! 

James and Harriet

I met Harriet when we realized that our daughters were the very best of friends.  We hadn't realized the girls depended on each other so much, but they were tight.  Like peanut butter and jelly tight!  Harriet and I became Facebook friends, and because the girls went to the same school, we kept in touch, shared funny stories about their latest exploits (they were both 4 at the time and had life figured out).  Harriet mentioned that she was getting married last year and I asked if she had a photographer, and well.  The rest is history.   Like all of the couples I am honored to photograph, you can instantly tell that James and Harriet are meant to be; they play off of each other and honestly- they didn't even realize I was there half the time.  That is exactly how I want any portrait session to be.  Effortless, easy, comfortable. 

After the engagement engagement session, the excitement for their wedding day began to build.  On March 30th, two wonderful souls became one.  Set on a beautiful piece of property right outside of the city- the most wonderful images were captured.
