Getting pictures of the Bride and Groom together are often some of your most difficult shots. Why? Because often the Bride doesn't want to be seen by the Groom until she walks down the aisle. That means they are taken after the ceremony when there are people waiting at the reception, so shots are often rushed.
And in the case of a sunset ceremony, you often run out of light!
Here - we took advantage of the low light situation and got a few romantic shots!
And a sun flare peeking through a kiss!They look so "in love"! But - isn't that how newly weds are supposed to look?The gorgeous couple!Again!And again!

A few good shots of the ceremony are a must at a wedding!This one was set outdoors at sunset.The lighting is dim, but we managed to still get good shots!And as beautiful as the mountains are in color, I still seem to prefer black & white! So - I did a nice mixture of both! After all, it's what Brandi likes that matters!

Another very important element of a wedding is The Bride! Isn't she stunning? We didnt have the opportunity to do bridals prior to wedding day, so I worked especially hard to get come good portraits of her by herself. And I am so glad I did. I love these!The Bride with the Flower Girl.The Bride by herself! This shows off both her perfectly fit body and her beautiful dress!And another shot of the bride by herself.
This particular bride, Brandi... was a joy to work with! She was easy going and positive in every way. I hope the groom knows how lucky he is!

If you've ever gone with a young bride to shop for her dress you know how important it is. She must find just the right dress. The one and only dress that flatters her the most and is absolutely beautiful in every way. It has to be perfect! So, naturally, I must get a few nice shots of the dress! This one was particularly beautiful.... and it looked absolutely perfect on!And.... I love it in black & white!

And when it comes to weddings, I like to get a unique ring shot that seems to "fit" the couple!
This wedding was set in the Wichita Mountains... so, I thought this shot was appropriate!Or... maybe this one! The rings here are placed on a deer antler chandelier. And - I always like to get a few shots with the groom and the ring as well!
More wedding picture to come!

She was soooooo good, too!Isn't she a little sweetheart?I love her little tutu!And her pretty little face!
I wish babies could stay babies just a little longer than they do. When they're this sweet you really don't want to change a thing.

I recently did pictures of Brycen's big brother Braylon, so we did a few of Brycen as well. This one was my favorite! Don't you just love that face?
And just look at Brycen! He's gotten huge! And he's quite charming!His smile is enough to get him whatever he wants.... and he knows it!
Boy, they learn young, don't they?

Baby Gwen's nursery is done in rubber duckies, so I did this to match! Gwen is trying to cooperate by making ducky faces! Isn't she just adorable?She is already a little princess. She is happy and content.... UNTIL..... you put her down. And, she has to be put down for pictures! I hear it's he Daddy that has her spoiled!
Way to go, Dad! REALLY! Nothing is more important for a little girl than being secure in her Father's love. Keep loving that baby and she'll be just fine!We did get some cute shots... but not as many as I or Gwen's Mommy would like, so Gwen should be coming back to see me soon.
In the event that I can't get a nice selection of portraits, it is my policy to do a free re-shoot. Sometimes with little ones a re-shoot at a different time of day is all that is needed to get their full cooperation!

I know I posted this picture of Hoyt last week.... but I wanted to include it again to show what a variety we were able to get out of one session. Hoyt came in with a belt that belonged to his Grandpa. He's named after his Grandpa so the belt has his name on it. And, my little watering troth has perfect little loops to hold the belt on it's frame. Hoyt's boots also fit perfectly into this scene. This is my favorite photo from the session!This shot is awfully cute, too! Look at that tough guy look on Hoyt's face!And - what do you think of this green? I shoot so many babies on pink or blue, I thought I'd try to get away from that a little. This bright green screems for attention and looks really cute with Hoyt and his monkey!I thought this was just darling, too! It looks like Hoyt has already had enough of the Oklahoma sunshine!We did some traditional newborn baby poses as well.
And yes.... this was all one session! Hoyt's Mommy and Daddy and Grandpa and Grandpa and all of his Aunts and Uncles can select a photo that suits them! Hopefully there is something in his galleries that everyone loves! And I know there will be. Each picture in his gallery is of HIM, and that's something they all love bunches!

I haven't had much time to post or even to read blogs!
But, I did take some very cute pictures.
I'm posting my favorite picture from the week for now, and will try to post a few more next week.
But - isn't this simply priceless? Baby Hoyt is precious and beautiful and he was pure pleasure to work with!

This photo was actually taken by Grace! Her first deer!
I hunt vegetarian style.... using a camera, not a gun!I love the way the morning light sneaks through the trees here.And here a little buck is keeping a close eye on Grace - who is still in her pajama's. You have to get up with the sun to see wildlife.... getting dressed and combing you hair can wait!
