One of my favorite shoots all  year long! I’m so happy to be sharing this today. I met with some extremely talented vendors from Arkansas and we traveled over to the prettiest little white barn in Tulsa Oklahoma called Spain Ranch to create some southern brunch-y editorial wedding goodness for you! We’re all in love with that elegant, southern, classic kind of look so we all collaborated together and came out with a little porch inviting, brunch filled classic southern gorgeousness with a sweet tea bar an all! It was SO much fun to work on this project with these amazing vendors and Natalie Scott brought together all our thoughts in a  beautiful design. So thankful to work with such amazing Arkansas wedding vendors.

I’m so stoked to be sharing Alex and Jon’s incredible wedding with you today. I took Alex and Jon’s engagement photos last fall and fell in love with them. We had so much fun and I knew that their wedding would be amazing but I didn’t know JUST how amazing it was going to be. First of all, the weather was incredible. Secondly, Jessica Zimmerman did the florals and design and it was jaw dropping gorgeous. Alex was such a sweet fun laid back bride (and I loved her gorges wedding dress from A & Be in Dallas) and Jon is just the coolest so it was basically the best day ever. I could not get over how beautiful the land was and how stunning their wedding and every single detail turned out. Alex anxiously get ready all day as Jon and his groomsmen hung out before the ceremony. Alex looked gorgeous walking down the aisle and they exchanged vows in front of all their family and friends. They were so sweet and it was such a sight to see. During cocktail hour we took some incredibly gorgeous photos around The Barn at The Springs land and then headed into the most stunning wedding reception ever. I cannot get over the long kings table with the ghost chairs covered in the most incredible florals and a million twinkling candles. They had the sweetest toasts from their family and then danced the night away and it was SO much fun.

This is one of my all time favorite shoots of all time. If you could ever ask me how I would throw my own wedding today this would be exactly how I would do it. I love that fresh organic style garden wedding with an exquisite gown and twinkling lights. Moss Mountain Farms along is one of the most gorgeous places to see in Arkansas…throw in some amazing wedding design and florals by Jessica Zimmerman and you have a recipe for something spectacular. I’m still dreaming about this day and it’s almost been a year since I photographed it! Something really special about this shoot was that it was my very first all film session I’ve ever photographed. I’m so thankful for Jessica to encourage me to shoot all film and for BJ Matthews to be my cheerleader as I took on this challenge that frightened me for some reason. Now I can safely say I LOVE shooting all film now and I want you to get ready for even more film because I have an ALL film wedding coming up next month too. I have 100% fallen in love with it and over the last two years it’s been a medium I’ve used to create images and I’ve gone back and forth and back and forth over whether or not I would really truly make it a part of my photography business. I am confident to say that I have fallen in love with it and I’m sure from this gorgeous shoot you can see why.

 

Also, get ready to see a pretty new website makeover and sorts of amazing things coming soon!

OH MY GOSH! How freaking perfect are Bailey and James?! I am SO excited about their wedding next April…it’s going to be incredible. We photographed part one of their engagement session at Moss Mountain Farms back in June and I’m excited to be sharing them. The sweetest kindest cutest couple at one of the prettiest places in Arkansas is a recipe for some incredible photos. I adore these two and can’t wait for round two this fall.

So this blog post is a super special post because this wedding is my sister’s wedding!! Before she ever met Kevin, her now husband, I told her that I would love to gift her with wedding photography whenever she meets ‘the one.’ Before I knew it she had really met him and our entire family was so excited. My sister Kristina is one of the most amazing human beings I’ve ever known. I’m not just saying that because she’s my sister…it’s really true if you’ve ever met her. I’m the oldest of four siblings on my mom’s side (I have two more on my dad’s side) and Kristina is just a few years younger than I am and we have two younger siblings (Kate and Michael). We were all SO happy when she started dating Kevin and we knew by the way she talked about him that he was the guy she was going to marry. When I met him for the first time I knew by how comfortable she was around him and how funny he was that he was a perfect fit for her.

 

Kristina and Kevin’s wedding day is a super unique kind of wedding to photograph because I’m her older sister. This meant that I was there early in the day setting up (literally placing candles on tables and honey jar favors) AND photographing it. It was way more than my normal wedding day and I was getting anxious for everything to be finished on time. Kristina let me help design and plan her wedding with her …she showed me what she liked and I brought together some ideas for her and she chose her favorites. I give major props to all wedding planners out there….you guys are amazing and do SO much work! It was really a true family collaboration to bring their wedding day dreams to life. When Kristina had the chance to see her wedding venue, The Farmhouse, completely finished she was teary eyed because it was everything she had dreamed of. We started off the wedding festivities with her and Kevin’s first look and they were all smiles and just so sweet. I was teary eyed from behind my camera too. We took all the photos we could beforehand and noticed some clouds rolling in. They had their sweet (and funny) ceremony inside The Farmhouse’s chapel and said forever. It was really sweet to have Kirk a long time family friend, mentor, teacher to all of my siblings and myself marry her and Kevin. Kevin jumped the gun on some vows and we were all dying laughing. He’s the best. There was a small cocktail hour while we finished up photos and just as we stepped inside for the reception it poured down raining. It was amazing how that timing worked out. They all ate some yummy southern food and I even sat down at their wedding for like 20 minutes. haha. It doesn’t happen often. They had toasts and an ice cream sunday bar (because Kristina and Kevin love ice cream…if you can’t tell by her face). They sang/yelled the Aggie Fight song and there was some fun dancing and they said good bye to all of our friend and family and headed off to their honeymoon. I love these two so much and I’m SO happy for them.

 

It was amazing to be on this side of weddings to be a part of it more than just the photographer and here how the photography effected them. Kristina told me after their engagement session that it was ‘everything she had ever dreamed of’ when she thought of her engagement session. I never thought about that …the fact that these are small moments in life you even imagine how it would go. My husband and I didn’t do an engagement session so I never thought about that part but now that I have heard her perspective it changed my thoughts on it for even more of the better! She also admitted that this past summer while she was out of school on summer break that she would get a little bored and she would just sit there and look at all her wedding photos over and over again. She’s so precious!

 

Here are all her amazing vendors…super huge special thank you to Anna Rogers from Magnolia Belle Floral for coming all the way down from Arkansas to Houston Texas to be a big part of Kristina’s day. We know that the day wouldn’t look even close to the way it looked without your amazing floral design and giving heart. Another huge thank you to Emily Joiner (our sister-in-law) who did all the hand calligraphy on name cards, tags, programs and that beautiful cake table tapestry. She helped SO much all while hiding the fact that she was newly pregnant with TWINS. She’s amazing. (they announced the pregnancy and twins two days after the wedding as to not take away from Kristina and Kevin’s special time and we love them and think they are so selfless and amazing for all they day). Last but not least we have to thank our incredible parents for throwing such a beautiful amazing day for our sister Kristina and being a great example of marriage for all of us. They’re the cute couple that don’t look old enough to be our parents but they are…hope I get that gene as I get older. ha.

Kristin and Cody were perfection at this beautiful peach orchard engagement session. I love the idea of actually doing some sort of activity for your engagement session along with a few beautiful portraits. I think it builds sweet memories and gives you something to do with your fiance as we take photos. I was super inspired by this amazing peach orchard in my little town and I loved the idea of going out to pick some fresh peaches and have a sweet little picnic with the love of your life. I think Kristin and Cody looked absolutely precious and there was so much laughing! One thing I do love about living in a small town is the small quiet areas where there are nothing but beautiful land and trees in sight. Sigh…  Big thank you to Kristin and Cody for going right along when I brought up this idea to them. Cannot wait for their wedding in October!
