I was actually lucky enough to meet Gizelle long before her wedding and chat with her about what she was envisioning for her big day. We had a great time getting to know each other over coffee, so I was totally thrilled when she booked us for her wedding. Once it arrived, it was a gorgeous Spring day with plenty of sunshine and a lot of wonderful family and friends who traveled thousands of miles to see Brendan and Gizelle marry. The wedding and the following reception were both held at St. Anthony’s on the Creek in Lowell, AR. This is such a beautiful venue!! We were excited to be able to shoot there when everything was in full bloom! And of course, Brendan and Gizelle were such a sweet couple to work with. We are just so blessed to have such great clients. Enjoy!

I don’t even know where to begin with Sean and Lexy – they are SO FUN! They came down to Eureka Springs last Fall for their engagement session and we had a blast running around half the county taking portraits. We knew then that we were going to love shooting their wedding in the Spring. When it came time, the weather was gorgeous, Sean and Lexy looked amazing, and the day went perfectly. They had their ceremony at Thorncrown Chapel and a reception following at the Inn of the Ozarks. Enjoy!!
We had the privilege of shooting Spencer and Amanda’s wedding on a blazing hot Spring day in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. It was sunny and gorgeous and they were so much fun to work with! Having never been to Walnut Ridge before, we were more than pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the chapel at William’s Baptist College was. The receptions was held afterwards at the First Baptist Church nearby, and it was gorgeous as well! We especially loved all of the fun decor they chose for the reception – lots of little birds, crystal white birdhouses, and bright blue accents.
First, let me just say that I absolutely LOVE this couple. I was introduced to Sammie about 3 years ago by our company’s Children’s/Family photographer, Nicona Jones. We all went out to dinner, where I also met Sammie’s boyfriend at the time – Wesley. They were such a fun couple! Not long after, Sammie asked me to do a portrait session for her. She ended up loving those portraits, and later hired me to do a couple’s session for her and Wesley. Fast forward a few years, and I had the privilege of shooting their engagement session, Sammie’s maternity session, AND FINALLY they’re BEAUTIFUL wedding. I have to say, I love building relationships like this one with my clients. Dad and I continue to be blessed with lifelong clients who include us in all of the big events of their lives. They trust us wholeheartedly to capture all of the wonderful moments and phases they want to remember and be remembered for. And, of course, we are always honored to do so.
Now, on to the wedding! Wesley and Sammie were married and held their reception at The Garden Room in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have to say, I love this venue. The people there are polite and gracious, and the atmosphere is that of a beautiful vintage/rustic backyard wedding (in a super GORGEOUS backyard ;). It was a warm late Spring day and it was sunny and perfect. Can’t get much better than that!
First off, let me say that Dan and Sara are SUCH a great couple! We met them last November at the Iron Horse Coffee Company in Rogers (LOVE that place btw!). After chatting and laughing for at least an hour, we knew that we were going to have a blast shooting their wedding. Of course, we had no idea that this year Spring was going to hide out and wait for Summer! lol They planned their gorgeous outdoor wedding for May 4th, which is guaranteed to be one of the most beautiful weekends out of the whole year for this part of the country. But this glorious year, Winter stayed around FOREVER, and tried to torment us on their wedding day. It was raining the whole way there – and COLD…like in the 50′s! God blessed us, though, by stopping the rain and giving us a beautiful afternoon and evening for the ceremony, and even the night wasn’t frigid. Woohoo!
Here are some of our faves from their awesome day!
I am SO excited to be blogging this wedding! Allan and Shayla had their wedding on the PERFECT day. It was Spring, the foliage was just barely starting to bloom, the sunlight was golden, and the location was epic. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the area, Castle Rogue’s Manor is an amazing location. It’s like a medieval wooden sprawling castle on the edge of a mountaintop overlooking the lake. LOVE IT. Needless to say, when you combine that type of location with a sweet fun couple who are celebrating the best day of their lives, it’s MAGICAL. Hope you enjoy these portraits as much as we enjoyed taking them!
Dad and I shot this wedding on a super hot Spring day in Oklahoma City, OK. It was our first time shooting at the Central Oklahoma Homebuilder’s Event Center, and it was great! Of course, it’s always aweseome when you have a super fun couple and wedding party, which we did. This particular couple wanted a bit of privacy from the social media world, so I’m not going to post their names, but they were both a blast to work with. And talk about a BEAUTIFUL couple – WOW! GORGEOUS.
Here are a few of our favorite portraits from their day, ENJOY!
Andrew and Brittany were married on a completely gorgeous “almost Spring” day in March at the Mountain Harbor Resort in Mt. Ida, AR. It was probably 80 degrees and the trees had just started blooming – LOVED IT. Beautiful couple, outdoor pavilion wedding, resort on the lake…win win win!!! Enjoy!
I have to say, I was SO excited when it came time for this engagement session and the weather was absolutely PERFECT! We’ve been having the strangest, longest winter EVER – you know, SNOW in MAY. But God was smiling down on us last week when he gave us the most gorgeous Spring evening of the year for our shoot. Plus, as an added bonus, Linda and Rustin are a totally gorgeous/fun couple! We had a blast doing their session!
So…here you go…our Springy, woodsy, sunset session! Enjoy!!
Ahhhhhhhh….Amy and Leland, what an awesome couple! After meeting them, I knew instantly that we were going to have a blast shooting their wedding. They are both fun and happy and outgoing and just a joy to be around! Their wedding was held in Hot Springs, AR at the beautiful Anthony Chapel in Garvan Woodland Gardens. It was a gorgeous sunny day, just on the verge of Spring, and absolutely perfect. They had a reception at the Arlington Hotel in downtown Hot Springs immediately after the wedding, and then an evening get together with close friends and family dancing the night away to a live band in the lobby later that night. So much fun! I could go on and on about the awesome details of their wedding day and how sweet they both were – but I think I would rather just mention that they had a woman at their reception making FRESH HOMEMADE DONUTS. (Oh my word…I cannot even explain to you how insanely good these donuts were. Trust me, best donuts of my whole life. lol)
Anyways, here are a few of our faves from their big day! Enjoy!
