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 am now 3 for 3 on making my brides cry during reveal parties this year! Gosh, I had the best time with Lyndsey, her parents, and Kyle this evening. They drove all the way from Kansas and I’m sure glad they did. This couple was a dream to work with in every way! Fun fact: Lyndsey caught the bouquet at a wedding I did last Fall – I love it when things come full circle! We did Lyndsey’s bridal photos at the Philbrook in the Spring and they were so perfect. Here are just a few of my faves from the wedding.

This St. Patty’s Day wedding at The Mayo Hotel was one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever shot. I loved how Kirsten and Ian embraced the holiday by encouraging their friends to wear shamrock suits, served green beer, and gave the guests St. Patty’s Day accessories. These two have been a joy to work with from day one. I loved getting to know Kirsten and Ian more on their engagement shoot downtown Tulsa and their families at the wedding.
Funny story – when I met with Kirsten for her final consultation to go over the shoot schedule, she started talking about the weather. Most people look to me for advice on the subject so, without thinking about who I was talking to, I started giving her my two cents. When she started in on the “fronts” and “patterns”, I remembered. Haha, its nice having a Meteorologist as a client! Seriously though, she ordered up a perfect March day for this wedding!

We did a few portraits out front of the Mayo before family portraits.
Then I got just a few in the hallway on the Mezzanine level. I’m in love with these!
Here are a few details of the decor in the ballroom. NAE and Crooked Roots nailed it!
Aaaaaand just a few portraits on the rooftop before the couple headed to the reception! That sunset though!
I have been working the downtown scene lately for engagement sessions and have been loving it. This is one of my new favorite spots by Prairie Brew Pub but it means a little more for this couple because it’s also where Lindsay and Ryan met! If you can’t tell by all the genuine smiles, these two were so much fun to get to know and to photograph.
In true Oklahoma spring fashion, the forecast was clear all week then an hour before we were scheduled to shoot, it started raining out of nowhere. Lucky, it cleared out fast because they both took off work just for the session. I’m in love with how they came out!
