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 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!
I had the pleasure of photographing my 2019 Brides of Oklahoma editorial at the brand new Patriot Golf Club in Owasso. You guys, they did this venue right with the most beautiful chandeliers and natural light. BOO hooked me up a dream team of vendors to work with as well. If you haven’t yet, go get yourself a copy of the magazine! Until then , here is a little sneak peek!

We had a rare lovely evening the weekend before Thanksgiving. The next day was literally 30 degrees colder, overcast and rainy. I just love that these high school sweethearts chose to go back to some of the places where their love blossomed. We romped all around Owasso for this super cute shoot! Here are a few of my faves!
