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.
Bridal sessions are on of my favorite things to shoot and Philbrook is one of my favorite places to shoot them at. This location is seriously a dream and we are so lucky to have it in Tulsa. Jennifer was such a good sport and stuck with me through the hot and muggy April day to get these images and, wowza, she looked amazing! I’m so happy to finally be able to share these since she is now a married woman! Keep scrolling to see some of my favorites! Click here to view Jen and Aaron’s engagement session downtown!

Jennifer invited her adorable niece to join her for some photos and even had an image of them printed for the reception at the wedding. So sweet!
Jen, you are absolutely gorgeous!

It’s a tradition in Cymber’s family to get a photo of the newspaper of the day of the wedding with the rings (I added other details as well). So fun!
Daddy giving his girl her “something blue”.
Love this moment between mom and her daughter!
First look with the bridesmaids!
First look with dad!
First look with the bride and groom!
We did some fun photos with the wedding party outside of the venue.
Cymber, you are stunning!
It’s ceremony time!
Their first kiss ever! Sooooooo sweet!
First dance as a married couple.
Father/daughter (with some help by the bride’s niece) and mother/ son dances.
Cymber’s sorority sisters sang a cute song for her and Christian.
Anniversary dance with the winners!
I stole the couple away at sunset to take some portraits around the area. We had a gorgeous evening!
Then they came back in for an exit and had their private last dance!
I have worked with Allyson many times professionally at a local venue and was so excited when she approached me to photograph her wedding. It is always such a compliment when people who are in the industry choose you. It will be a special day for so many reasons but for Picturesque, it will be my second shooter’s (and husband’s) last wedding before he retires from photography. It’ll be bitter sweet for me!
We set the engagement session for April, knowing full well that Oklahoma weather is crazy during the spring months. We figured we’d give it a shot anyway. The week before, and even two days before, there was a chance of rain up to 90%. We were so close to rescheduling but per my rule, we decided to wait until 24 hours before the shoot to make a final decision. I am SO glad we didn’t reschedule because we had a gorgeous 75 degree day with mostly sunny skies. Some clouds rolled in at the end but that’s it.
Allyson had a few areas in mind for possible engagement session locations and ended up going with Spain Ranch because she has a love for exotic animals, including highland cattle. Guess who happens to have a couple (and a buffalo)?! That’s right, Spain Ranch! Not only do they have not one, but two gorgeous barns and a pond/grounds that are to die for, but they are an actual ranch as well. I’m so glad the cattle shots worked out! Scroll to see them all!
Andrew literally took the cork off with a saber. How cool is that?!
Caitlin and Andres lives out of state so I didn’t meet Caitlin in person until about a week before the wedding and Andes the night before at the rehearsal dinner but we all into step immediately. It was such a wonderful couple days full of so much love and family. It was a great way to kick off my wedding season! Congrats to you both!

We did hair and makeup shots at the salon then moved to the Bride’s childhood home to finish getting ready.
Some detail shots on this amazing floor in the bride’s parent’s bedroom.
Love this moment between mother and daughter.
First Look at Agora Event Center!
Then we did some portraits!
Caitlin, you are stunning!
This venue has an amazing view of downtown Tulsa!
Love these place card settings.
View of the dinner room with all the pretty lighting.
The head table was stunning.
They can’t possibly get any cuter!
The Hora Dance is one of my favorite traditions to capture!
If you look closely, you can see both downtown Tulsa and a reflection of the lights and dancers on the dance floor.
And that’s a wrap!
