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 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!
Lastly, we headed out to the studio for a few sunset shots.
See what I mean about the sunset?!
Bridal sessions are on of my favorite things to shoot and Philbrook is one of my favorite places to shoot them at. This location is seriously a dream and we are so lucky to have it in Tulsa. Jennifer was such a good sport and stuck with me through the hot and muggy April day to get these images and, wowza, she looked amazing! I’m so happy to finally be able to share these since she is now a married woman! Keep scrolling to see some of my favorites! Click here to view Jen and Aaron’s engagement session downtown!

It’s a tradition in Cymber’s family to get a photo of the newspaper of the day of the wedding with the rings (I added other details as well). So fun!
