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.
I’m so happy to finally be able to share the images from Jennifer and Aaron’s wedding at the Mayo Hotel in June. This wedding was filled with so many amazing details and even more love. This couple was such a dream to work with and I got some of my favorite images of all time at this wedding – hint hint confetti. They also had a dream team of vendors to work with which always makes the day so much fun! Click here to view their downtown Tulsa engagement session and Jennifer’s Philbrook bridal session as well!

Jennifer’s gift from her almost hubby? A promise to pick her out some Louis Vuitton’s from Paris on their honeymoon!
Jennifer’s first look with her dad! So sweet!
The couple’s first look!
Jennifer, you are stunning!
The Glam Squad (Ash Franke) and planners (Nicole Allen Events) doing their thing just before the bride walks down the aisle.
They had a gospel choir sing “Oh Happy Day” as they exited the ceremony. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place…including mine!
See what I mean about the reception details?!
I love it when a plan comes together. Heath and I bought this Whitehall rowboat a couple years ago and have been working on cleaning it up in our spare time. Last Spring we decided to give it its maiden voyage as the ultimate photography prop. First, we needed a pond. As most of you know, we have a pond on our property but it recently had a run in with a family of beavers who left it a bit rough around the edges. Instead we decided to reach out to Spain Ranch to see if they were interested in hosting the shoot. When they agreed, I immediately contacted my girl Nicole Allen to design the shoot. Wow. It is such a dream to be able to work with such talented people on a daily basis.
While Nicole was a hard at work, Mike with Lionsroad said he had an idea for a styled shoot and when we saw the inspiration photo, we were hooked. That is how the light tunnel including 600 feet of light strands containing 1800 individual twinkle lights came to life. It took 3 people 3 hours to set up this bad boy. The table scape set was a great transition from the boat portion to finish out the shoot.

This one is a giant print in my studio entry way!
I had SO much fun with Nicole and Tim at their early morning engagement session in downtown Tulsa. They live out of state so they flew in Thursday evening but their flight was delayed. After only a few hours of sleep, they got up bright and early for this 6:30 am session to catch all that sunrise light. I’m not sure how they pulled off looking so flawless on so little sleep, but they sure did it! It was fun to get to shoot downtown in a new light (pun intended). When the light source is on the opposite side that it usually is when I shoot there, it’s like shooting in a completely different spot. Here are a few of my favorites!
Loving this light!
They can’t possibly get any cuter!
She said YES!
We had a heck of a time scheduling Lizzie and Marc’s engagement session. Lizzie was flying in from out of town so we had only two different weekends to work with. The first happened to be the weekend of Tulsa Tough, and while that’s a wonderful event, it’s not ideal for a downtown engagement session. The next weekend she was in town was for the 4th of July. We scheduled for the 3rd and everything was looking great then about 2 hours before the session, it started pouring outside. The strange little pop-up shower packed some punch in the form of lightning as well. We decided to wait and see what it was going to do and in the end it cleared up just in time for the session! We were lucky enough to have an amazing sunset to work with as well! I loved getting to know this sweet couple better and I cannot wait for their wedding at Spain Ranch this Fall!
We started off with some photos at Hotel Indigo’s rooftop bar. It has amazing view of the city!
The couple is a fan of all of Tulsa’s murals, so we hit several!
