What is it that makes your heart pound and your pulses race?  Most of you are probably thinking about a person of the opposite sex after that question.  And trust me, I’ve been there.  But, as a single girl, what gets my heart throbbing on a regular basis is not some hot guy…It’s photography.  Waaah-wah, I know.  But it’s true.  My photography not only provides me with a creative outlet, it is also the perfect tool to connect me with others.  People.  Because photography might be my passion, but people are my true love. 

I can’t even explain the thrill I feel as I look through my camera and see someone’s heart.  And when I am looking through the photos after a successful shoot…well, talk about pulses racing.  I get so excited that it’s just dumb.

This bridal session of my friend Jade was one of those shoots that really delighted me.  When I first got to know Jade awhile back, I knew immediately that I wanted to photograph her and became better acquainted with her from behind the lens of my camera.  I convinced her last year to let me do a very fun shoot of her out at the state fair.  I guess she liked posing for me, because when she got engaged, Jade contacted me to photograph her bridal portraits and wedding. :)  We did her bridal session this summer, out on some gorgeous land in Binger, OK {thanks to the Opitz fam!}. 

Now that Jade’s {beautiful} wedding day has come and gone, I can show off these photos!  Two factors made this shoot amazing for me.  One, Jade completely trusted me and was willing to go wherever and do whatever to get good photos.  And two, she worked it like a model!  Seriously.  Check it out…














You are sweet and good and beautiful, and I love you!  I am so happy that we became friends.  I am so happy for your happiness with Vincent!  I am so happy that you chose to have me be your wedding photographer.  In fact, everything about you makes me happy. :)

Ahhh, breathtaking images!

[…] I’m back with another Throwback Thursday wedding inspiration post.  This one is a lovely fall wedding that I photographed a couple of years ago.  The bride, my sweet friend Jade, is a girl with a great sense of style.  You can’t tell in this pic so much, but her wedding dress had a high-low hemline…two years ago.  Just call her a trendsetter. {You can check out more of that fab dress and Jade’s gorgeousness in this Bridal Portrait post.} […]
