Wedding: Chad & Kimberly

As tiring as wedding season can be, when it comes around I wouldn’t want to be anywhere but behind my camera capturing it all.  I love the love and happiness and color and details that come with all the sweat and stress and tired feet at the end of the day :)

Here’s a wedding I did for a sweet friend last year in Stillwater, Oklahoma!  Kimberly and I go way back, and I couldn’t have been more honored to get to capture her and Chad’s lovely wedding day.


I love all the bubbles!

I hope your Monday is lovely, friends :)

Friday Phone Dump

“…but the mere fact that they were still there on either side of him, speaking bracing words of comfort, not shrinking away from him as though he were contaminated or dangerous, was worth more than he could ever tell them.”

  1. The Paseo is a little magical.  When I’m there I can pretend like I’m on Canyon Road in Santa Fe–you know, strolling from gallery to gallery chatting with all of the world-renowned artists about their work.  Or something like that  :)
  2. I had the pleasure of puppy-sitting my friend, Danielle’s, sweet dog Lucy for a few hours this week!  Her and Bozeman are buddies now–so cute.

3.  Colin and I spent all of Saturday organizing and cleaning the office!  It honestly still looks a little crazy, but it was nice to go through all the piles of things that have slipped through the cracks over the past few months.  Also, I’m loving purging our house of all the things we thought we needed in the past, but definitely don’t need.  So refreshing!


4-5.  Our sweet friends, Sean and Kristen (who live in Wisconsin), surprised us this week by showing up in OKC!  They ate dinner with us one night, then we got to watch the Thunder game at The Patriarch with them the next.  I miss those two a lot, and I wish we could see them more often!  So glad to have gotten to spend time with them though :)

Short post this week, I’ve been busy playing catch-up on editing in preparation for our upcoming trip (to see our other favorite Sean and his wife, Sheila)!  This weekend I’m shooting a wedding and spending time with Colin.  I hope your weekend is fantastic!

Friday Phone Dump

“I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn’t made for the simple life
There’s a light I see, but it’s far in the distance
So I’m asking you to show me some forgiveness
It’s all for you in my pursuit of happiness[…]

I’ve been working all night, maybe you could help me to believe
This song ain’t nothing if this song can’t set you free
So I’m asking you to show me some forgiveness
It’s all for you in my pursuit of happiness”

1-2) Friday mornings at Cuppies are the best mornings at Cuppies :) It’s such a great place to kick-off the weekend

05132016 phone dump2

3) I got to stop by the boutique where my friend, Kourtni, has been working recently!  It’s called Black Scintilla, and it’s adorable–especially with these giant pinwheels in the windows.  Check it out the next time you’re in Midtown!

4) KatieBugs is an important part of every good warm evening :)  Also, I think you’re required to take a photo like this when you’re there


5) Bethany is finished with Pharmacy school!  We went to The Patriarch after her last final to celebrate (and watch the Thunder game…THUNDER UP!)

05132016 phone dump3

6-7)  On Saturday our friend, Kyle, was nice enough to help Colin fix the window of his car (it broke last weekend)!  I thought a good way to repay him was dinner outside.  I love days when that gets to happen!

8) Bozeman loves cooling off in his pool haha

9) So our neighbors have wildflowers instead of grass in their front yard…soooooo #HomeGoals

05132016 phone dump5

10) We have these lovely plants in our front garden that look tropical and awesome–they’ve bloomed now and I love it!

11) Monday yoga studio vibes

12-15) Beth and I went to Hoboken to get some “work” done this week, and we decided we love it because it feels like going on vacation!  We have to drive at least 30 minutes to get there, and it’s got really relaxing vibes :)

05132016 phone dump8

16-20)  I had my last meeting with the ladies of the Changed Retreat this week, and it was bittersweet!  They threw me the loveliest party complete with epic dance music, organic food (chips and salsa and chocolate covered pretzels!), and gorgeous flowers!  I love these girls, and I’ll miss getting to work with them at Changed.  Love you all!

05132016 phone dump9

21)  Here’s a close up of the flowers they gave me (my sweet friend, Simone, put them together!)–I swoon over them every morning.

22) Lake sunsets are so gorgeous.

Well, I think we’re still technically in Spring, but this week’s photos feel like Summer don’t they?  I’m actually ok with that–bring it on, Summer!  This weekend we will be running around doing a little bit of everything.  I hope your weekend is happy and fantastic!

Friday Phone Dump

“Oh, and I’m holding on to you
And I won’t let go
You’re the only thing that’s true
And I won’t let go”

She Said // Jon Foreman

1-3) We went to my family’s ranch in Tishomingo this weekend, and it was such a nice getaway!  We got to eat at the best all-you-can-eat catfish place (Fishtales) and show Bozeman what it’s like to have more room to run than you’re able to cover :)  He’s still recovering from running so much haha


4) These are our friends, Mike and Jennifer, who set us up with a place to stay while we were in England.  We love them, and it was fun grabbing lunch with them this week–we hadn’t seen them since we’ve been back!  I took this selfie to send to Tom and Ro (who we stayed with in England), but any phone picture I take is fair game for Friday phone dump sooooo here we are :)

5-7) Colin had a conference in Tulsa this week, so on Wednesday I got to go stay with him and go on a Tulsa date!  We went to Tucci’s (which I haven’t been to in 2 years–it was time for a return visit for sure) and The Phoenix; some of our favorite places!  Tulsa, you’re so delightful.

05062016 phone dump3

8-10) Thursday morning I was on my own for breakfast, so I enjoyed Dilly Diner (another absolute favorite) by myself.  It was a lovely time to sit and read the news while drinking all the tea and eating incredible food.  Sidenote: when it comes to breakfast, give me alllll the potatoes.

05062016 phone dump4

11-12) Back in OKC :)  I love the lush green trees next to the blue of the Devon tower!  Also, #AccidentalArtsyPhoto

This weekend we are celebrating graduations from near and far, and trying to get some Spring cleaning done, because the struggle is real.

Oh, and Happy Mothers’ Day to all you moms!

Friday Phone Dump

“As it turned out, the work I had to do was messy and deep.  I slogged through it until one day, exhausted and with mud still wet and dripping off my traveling shoes, I realized, ‘Oh, my God.  I feel different.  I feel joyful and real.  I’m still afraid, but I also feel really brave.  Something has changed–I can feel it in my bones.'”

Here’s a two-week phone dump for your viewing pleasure!

1-2) Colin took off two Fridays ago since he had worked extra that week, and we embraced the free time by going to Waffle Champion!  He had never been there before, so it was high time we went.  Waffles remind me of Leslie Knope these days–which always brings a little extra joy to my day :) In case you’re wondering, I got the “Blueberry Sunrise” which has thyme-blueberry compote and a lemon goat cheese spread, and Colin got the “Waffle French Toast.”  Wow.  So good.  They never disappoint!

4-7) We spent the rest of Colin’s day off at the zoo!  It had been 2 years since we last went, so we were due for another visit.  I always love seeing the animals, and walking around in gorgeous weather and my love is pretty amazing too.

04292016 phone dump4

8-9) Taking Bozeman to the lake–his and our new favorite thing :)

10) One of those sunsets that takes your breath away, you know?

04292016 phone dump5

11) I had a shoot in Stillwater the next day, so Colin and Bozeman came with me!  We got to enjoy my favorite food truck (Cafe Bella) at one of our favorite coffee shops (Aspen) while Skyping our friends in England haha


12-13)  Also in Stillwater, we got to go to a puppy birthday party for Opal (my brother’s girlfriend, Lesa’s, dog).  The party was so fun, but I’m heartbroken to tell you that earlier this week Opal was hit by a car :'(  We are so so sad to lose this sweet girl, but we’re thankful for the time we got to spend with her.

14-17) All the flowers and greenery have been so lush lately, it’s gorgeous.  These are snapshots from walks with Bozeman.

04292016 phone dump8

18-19)  I had my last Changed Retreat as a staff member last weekend!  I’m sad to leave this amazing ministry, but I know this is where I’m supposed to be going.  Anyway, this last retreat was absolutely the best yet, so I have lots of photos to share.  Oakridge Camp is so fun and lovely, as you’ll see in the following photos.  The ones of me were taken by Kourtni.

04292016 phone dump9

20-21) We didn’t zip line, but our friends did!  As you can see, I got lots of photos with my DSLR haha  I feel like that photo captures my current life; photography and yoga :)

04292016 phone dump11

22-25) During one of our free times I went hiking, and I found thousands and thousands of wildflowers!  Since I already had a braided crown in my hair, I (obviously) decided to weave as many flowers as I could into it.  Gosh, wildflowers are so magical.

04292016 phone dump12
04292016 phone dump13

26-31) After hiking, I had the pleasure of leading these ladies through the confidence course at Oakridge— it’s one of those things that looks really easy until you try it!  They all did amazing, and it was so fun for me to coach them and watch them conquer their fear and doubts.

04292016 phone dump14

32) My gorgeous friend, Simone…she’s really the best!

33) Behind the scenes of me filming my friend, Wendi, perform her spoken word poem that she wrote at the retreat.  That girl is amazing I tell you, I’m just so proud of her!


34) My women’s Lifegroup is spectacular, and if you were only judging by the previous photos, this photo probably looks like I’m still at the Changed Retreat haha  I love getting to meet with these ladies every other week so much–they are such light to me.

04292016 phone dump15

35-36) More lake and Bozeman photos :) we loved the stormy weather we had earlier this week (though we’re hoping tornado season stays away this year).  Bozeman had claimed this pillow by the bookcase as his new favorite spot to cuddle while I work.

04292016 phone dump16

37-38) Lake sunsets are easily my fourth favorite kind of sunsets.  1) Mountain sunsets 2) Ocean sunsets 3) Field sunsets 4) Lake sunsets 5) Storm sunsets

Just in case you were wondering about my full top 5.


39) Lots of people flying over OKC yesterday–this was the view from our backyard.  I wonder where everyone was going?

This weekend we are relaxing on vacation with a few of our friends–I’m definitely looking forward to it!  I hope your weekend is awesome :)
