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 just love working with these two! We had a unique situation where the day we had the engagement session schedule, it was predicted to be sunny and gorgeous. About 30 minutes before the session, the clouds started rolling in and by the time we started shooting it was thundering in the background. We only got half the session in before Brent had to head home so that he wasn’t stuck in the rain on his motorcycle. We ended up finishing the session the next day, which was sunny and gorgeous. Silly Oklahoma weather! Kudos to Stephanie and Brent for just rolling with it! Here are a few of my favorites from the session. I can’t wait for the wedding at The Silo at Redberry Farms next summer!
Brent had a custom graffiti wall made as a surprise for Stephanie. It says Mr. and Mrs. McClain. So cool!
There’s that motorcycle!
So pretty! Stephanie’s hair and makeup was done by Destry at Glamour Artz Studio for the first day of shooting.
Maegan and Mitchell were the first couple I booked for 2017 so they got first pick of engagement session dates this Fall. I must say that they did a fantastic job! We had the most beautiful temperature and even no wind, which is rare for Oklahoma. They chose to have their engagement session at Philbrook Museum of Art because that is where they got engaged last winter. These two were so natural in front of the camera and we got some great shots! I can’t wait for their wedding at Dresser Mansion next summer. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the session!
Evie and I hit it off from the very first consultation and I have been looking forward to her and David’s engagement ever since. After seeing the studio, she knew that she wanted to do at least some photos on our property. We decided to do a few downtown then head out here for sunset. We ended up rescheduled because of rain and I am so happy that we did. The day we got wasn’t terrible for August in Oklahoma and the light was perfect. You can just feel the love that these two have for each other just being around them. My camera loved them! I can’t wait for their wedding this Fall!
My new favorite spot to shoot downtown shots!
I love this little Cottonwood grove at the studio!
This couch is a family heirloom that recently came into our possession. I was so excited to try it out as a prop with Evie and David. I love it!
Love, love, love! This was a photo I took when they thought I wasn’t taking photos. So perfect!
Andrew + Kristin | Harvard Avenue Christian Church Wedding and Camp Loughridge Reception Tulsa, Oklahoma
I did Andrew and Kristin’s initial consultation over the phone, which is rare for me, but I just knew right away that we would get along. These two are some of the most genuine people you will ever meet. I’m not the only one to think this as well…all of the speeches at the reception had the same tone. I’m not sure how I get so lucky with the best couples, but it happens time and again. The first time I met them in person was just a couple weeks before the wedding to go over the final shoot schedule. They came out to my studio and I had my then 4-week-old baby with me and they didn’t skip a beat. I love having couples that understand that I’m a working mom! At the meeting, Kristin had everything all laid out which made my job easy! The wedding day went so smoothly thanks to her planning as well. It was such a heart felt day with so many happy emotions. I’m so happy I was there to capture it. Congrats, you two! Here are some of my favorites from the day!

This corner at the church made the perfect first touch location. It had rained that morning which cooled the July temps down as well so we all weren’t blazing hot!
We had to do a few portraits out here with the wedding party as well.
Oh my, these handsome boys!
Seeing his bride for the first time!
We did a few portraits at Camp Loughridge in the yummiest light you will ever see.
Kristin, you are stunning!
Keeping cool! Haha
The entourage! Love this behind-the-scenes shot that Heath took.
