Elizabeth + Nicholas

OH HAPPY DAY! 

What an awesome wedding, but mostly, what an awesome couple! I was so honored when Nick and Elizabeth asked me to be their photographer so many months ago!  Mayfair is such a beautiful church, so it made for a beautiful backdrop for their wedding. They were surrounded by great friends, supportive family, and had donuts and a pretzel truck at their reception. So, you can say it was pretty awesome. Congrats Elizabeth + Nick! All the best!

Robbie + Cailtin 

I loved this wedding so much. Definitely one of my favorite weddings to be a part of. It was an unusually warm January 30th. The light was great, the venue was amazing, but most of all, Robbie and Caitlin were (are) awesome. The day had a sense of ease, and so did they.

One of my favorites parts of weddings is the "First Look." It's such a special, intimate moment, and always relieves any wedding day jitters or stress. Robbie and Caitlin's was no exception. It was sweet, sincere, and just lovely. 

The ceremony was full of of love, the gospel, special family prayers, and a time of communion for the bridal party. The reception was a blast, and the guests could have dance for hours. 

My favorite part of all was the way Robbie and Caitlin looked at each other throughout the day. They are one of the most genuine couples you'll meet, and their love for one another is ever apparent. I was so honored to capture their day. 

Another plus was getting to have an old friend, Mason Drumm, second shoot for me. He is a crazy talented drummer and photographer. He captured amazing cinemagraphs, which you can find on my instagram: lauravanderzee

Thank you so much Caitlin and Robbie! I wish you all the joy and love.

Robbie + Caitlin 

Love these two! They are such a special couple. Definitely meant to be.

We had such a fun time during their session in Guthrie. The weather was perfect, with that gorgeous wintery light. Their session was truly effortless. They snuggled, laughed, and made my job really easy. It was a delight to capture this time in their relationship. Looking forward to their winter wedding in January!

Tessa + Cooper | Wedding | Oklahoma City, Ok | Packards Rooftop

I love this couple! They are fun, sweet, original, quirky in the best way, perfect for each other, and their wedding was just perfect for them. It was a small, family and close friends ceremony on the rooftop of Packards in OKC. I've had the joy of capturing almost every milestone of their relationship, and we've become friends along the way! I couldn't be happier for the two of you!
