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.
Ahhhhh, now that Jennifer and Matt have officially seen their photos, I’m so happy to share them too! This was the sweetest day with the sweetest couple and their sweet families! I’ve enjoyed getting to know them throughout this journey including their engagement session at the studio last fall. We started our day at Jennifer’s house then headed to Asbury Methodist and finished up at Camp Loughridge. The couple decided not to do a first look so we did sunset photos at Loughridge before entering. So. Much. Fun! Congrats, you two!

The bride made these custom batman bow ties for all the groomsmen and the groom for the reception. Jennifer has some mad sewing skills!
Hugs from momma!
Jennifer and Matt did not want to do a first look so we did a few with each of them with their bridesmaids/groomsmen before the ceremony.
They each exchanged gifts and notes before the ceremony!
This bible is Jennifer’s grandmother’s and every bride who has carried it down the aisle has written their name and date on it. I love, love, love traditions like this!
The couple had a super cute slideshow playing while guests were being seated. This is a photo of the groom and groomsmen sneaking a peek!
The behind-the-scenes moments that guests don’t get to see. The bridesmaids dutifully steamed Jennifer’s dress just before she walked down the aisle!
All hands on deck!
Portraits! My favorite time of the day!
The first dances!
Caught red handed!
Private last dance!
Get ready for a super long blog post! I am so lucky to have had so much time with Jessica and Jim on the wedding day for portraits! We hit several places around the Mayo as well as the killer view at the rooftop. The Mayo recently opened up a view of downtown that is incredible! These two were such a joy to work with throughout the whole process and treated us like we were a part of the family. The day was absolutely perfect!

I love this sweet moment captured by my second shooter. The couple did not do a first look so the first time they saw each other was when Jessica walked down the aisle. This is a shot of Jessica and her future sister-in-law with Jim in the background just before he took his place for the ceremony. Love it!
The city was working on the road out front of the hotel but no worries – we just got a few in the gorgeous lobby!
And then we squeezed in a few out front!
This is one of my favorite rooms at the Mayo!
Cocktail hour at the Penthouse!
Check out the ballroom!
The grand entrance!
The first dances!
I stole them away at sunset for a few photos on the rooftop!
At the end of the night, Jim decided to give the drummer a break. So fun!
That’s a wrap! Congrats, you two!
For nearly 3 years, I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Tulsa Wedding Society. It has been a great group to bounce ideas off of and talk business with other in the same industry. With so many talented people under one roof every week, we decided that we should showcase what we can do! TWS scheduled three shoots utilizing ALL of our members and this is the first!
Rene with Mom and Me Events came up with a moody concept and we were all in love! As luck would have it, a thunderstorm rolled in to Dream Point Ranch literally right when we were scheduled to shoot, adding to the mood. As we were finishing up, I wanted to try to go outside to get some photos of the killer view but it was still sprinkling. No worries! I keep a clear umbrella (or 3) in my car just for such an occasion. Our models were so amazing for braving the rain with us. We were just about to go in when the sun peeked out from the clouds then a rainbow appeared. It could not have been more magical! Here are a few of my favorite shots – I can’t wait to see the video from PenWeddings!
