Elizabeth + Nicholas


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! 

Seth + Suzanna | 5.21.16 | The Hidden Porch | Catoosa, Oklahoma

One of my favorite weddings to date.

I met Suzanna in college, and she has always been one of the sweetest, funniest, and genuine people ever. So to say I was excited and honored to capture her wedding day was an understatement.

Seth and Suzanna have these ease about them. They just sort of fit, ya know? The are quirky, fun, and obviously in love. And their wedding showed that in every detail. From lovely florals, a fun bridal party, to a corgi cake topper. It was all perfectly them!

So happy for you both! It was an honor to capture your day!

Robbie + Cailtin | Wedding | Civic Center Hall of Mirrors

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
