Sam & Brian had a wedding day so dreamy that I would be selfish not to share the eye candy details and uber-romantic, sun-drenched portraits with all of you. Everything that they surrounded themselves in that day was amazing, from the venue to the people chosen to stand by their sides. I love a wedding party who knows how to have fun, and I love a couple like Sam & Brian who break out in dance parties in the middle of their bride/groom portraits. 😂
I'm SO happy that I got to photograph this awesome couple from the moment Brian placed that gorgeous engagement ring on Sam's finger, to when he topped it off with a wedding band and made their forever together an official thing. These two are truly made for each other and it's so fun to capture!!

I love this wedding so much. I love this wedding because I've known this couple for a very, very long time (#finallysunderland... ahem) ;) and I've known the groom my entire life. I also love this wedding because the entire day was super easy on the eyes... thanks to a stunning venue and the planning skills of the beautiful bride, nothing was overlooked and everything was perfect. The cherry on top? Grabbing an ice cream cone for the bride & groom during their portrait session because, well, why not?! Stillwater is so fun to explore and we couldn't turn down an opportunity for fun portraits with sweets!!
Weddings of people that I know will always hold a special place in my heart; it's amazing enough to witness the moments of the wedding of a friend as a guest, but when I know the couple and get to see those tiny little moments that only my eyes get to see through my lens... the day takes on an even deeper level of love and meaning to me. I am so grateful that Kelsey & Ryan put me in this role for their wedding day and am so THRILLED for their new beginning as husband and wife. I hope you all love these photos as much as I do!!
