I’ve been looking forward to this wedding since I booked this sweet couple at the beginning of the year. I went to high school with the groom and it’s always extra special to photograph the wedding of someone that I know personally. It’s crazy how things work out. It just happened to fall into place when we were able to sneak in the engagement session as my last shoot before I had my baby in June and theirs was my first wedding back after maternity leave. They even drove to Tulsa for the session! Not only was this a gorgeous wedding, but there were so many heart-felt moments throughout the day. The vows that the couple wrote themselves were especially touching. I often tear up behind my camera but I was practically sobbing after listening to Jessica and Jose. The love that these two have for each other is so beautiful! Here are a few (who am I kidding, this is the longest blog post I have ever done) of my favorites. Congrats, you two!!!

You’re eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. Jessica’s dress was pink and it was incredible! Absolutely stunning!
Sometimes you just gotta twirl!

All the bride’s favorite girls praying for her.
The venue has this amazing location at the edge of the property. It was perfect for the first look!
This, THIS is what it’s all about, folks. All the feels!
We snapped a few portraits before heading back to the mansion.

This is one of my very favorite shots, probably ever, from Heath. You can just feel the nerves and anticipation of walking down the aisle. You are stunning, Jessica!

We had so much time for portraits…I was in heaven! This wedding party was so great to work with!
