I am Amanda Bringham, owner and lead photographer at Picturesque. I am an avid bookworm, a hopeless gardener and lover of sunny days. I started as a photojournalist, turned wedding photographer and never looked back. Check out this video by the one and only PenWeddings of me in action at our 16 acre outdoor studio.


Ashley + Aaron | Mayo Hotel Wedding

Oh how I am going to miss these two now that the wedding is over! I have now photographed Ashley 4 times including the wedding day and have had the best time getting to know her. Seriously, we are BFF’s now! I knew Ashley and I would be a great fit for each other from the beginning but I’m thrilled to be coming out of this experience with a new friend. We shot Ashley and Aaron’s engagement session this Fall and it was seriously  one of my favorite sessions that I have ever done at the studio. Everything was perfect from the lighting, to the outfits, to the amazing chemistry between these two love birds. We also did a bridal session for Ashley downtown and at the Mayo and she killed it, as always! Not many girls can pick up a 12 hour shift at work (she’s a nurse) then go straight to a session and be as elegant as if she planned for it all day. She and her mom, Debbie, did a fabulous job planning this classy wedding at the Mayo and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it! Every detail was perfect! Congrats, you two, and much love!

As we were preparing for Ashley to open her letter from Aaron, she prefaced it by saying, “I’m not going to cry or anything.” Well, that’s what she thought! 😉

This is one of my favorite photos ever! Heath (my second shooter and hubby) captured this moment between Ashley and her dad. Ashley has two wedding bands and he put one on her just before walking down the aisle. I tear up just looking this photo. THIS is what it’s all about, folks.

Allyson + Brodie | Mayo Hotel Wedding | Tulsa, Oklahoma

It is always the greatest compliment when another photographer (let alone another wedding photographer – because wedding photographers are a whole other breed, haha) asks you to photograph their wedding. Allyson photographs wedding all over Oklahoma and naturally does a lot of shooting outside in fields. It’s what we do here in rural America. So when she started planning her wedding, she decided to change things up and go black tie. What other venue would you choose than the Mayo Hotel for such a wedding??? The Grand Hall fit their style perfectly! Every little detail was expertly planned! I even loved how there was an ice storm the night before so it was a wintery wonderland outside. So fun! Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Bush!

Ashley | Mayo Hotel and Downtown Tulsa Bridal

This is Ashley. This is Ashley after a 12-hour shift at the hospital (she’s a nurse) on a day she wasn’t supposed to work. She said she just pulled this look together. Whaaaat? This is definitely not me when trying to pull myself together. I have loved getting to know Ashley, who is beautiful inside and out, the past 6 months. She has been a joy to photograph in every way. Including her great attitude when things didn’t go as planned on the day of her bridal. First, she had to work a long shift, then the weather had a cold snap where it was 75 degrees the day before…it was in the 40’s this day. The poor girl was freezing so we took just a few photos outside then headed to The Mayo Hotel (where she and Aaron got married last night!) for the remainder of the shots. I’m just in love with how they came out!

Best of 2016

It’s already mid-January (how did that happen?!) and we have already shot our first 2017 wedding, but we would like to take a moment to look back on the amazing 2016 that we had. I thank my lucky stars every year for some how getting to work with the best couples! We even did more family sessions than ever before last Fall! I want to thank all of my brides who either delt with a pregnant (sometimes very pregnant) Amanda or a mom-with-a-newborn-and-two-year-old sleepy Amanda. We shot at new venues and venues we haven’t been to in several years. We shot in Kansas City 7 weeks after having my baby for one of my high school friend’s wedding. We even shot a surprise wedding! It was definitely a year to remember. This year I not only photographed weddings but made some true friends with a couple of my brides. I say this every year, but I truly love what I do…or I wouldn’t do it. So much love to you all!
