I am so excited to share this Bridal Session with everyone! I’ve been holding it back for a month or so to wait till the day after the wedding and TODAY is the day y’all! And I’ll tell you, when I first met Clare, I was really hoping that I would get the opportunity to photograph her wedding, but she had already booked a photographer for her wedding but she did enter my Bridal Session giveaway at Bridal Wars at Dream Point Ranch back in March. So, to be fair she does work for an amazing Wedding Coordinating company, Erica Weddings, so one would think I rigged it, but to be completely honest, I didn’t! I actually had my husband draw a name for the winner so it would be fair just so I wouldn’t be partial, and he drew her name! I was so excited because I was hoping she’d win!!!
Her Bridal session day was one to remember, the winds were typical Oklahoma winds! I swear it was like 50mph, but I have no real idea, it was crazy, take a look at this photo I took when I was preparing for our session!
See i’m not crazy, it was wild!! So I asked her if she wanted to reschedule but she already had her hair and nails and floral arrangement planned so we were going to go with it! So we did and it was so much fun, and she looked stunning!! Just look for your self!
Isn’t she beautiful?
I’m so glad we went to the Gilcrease Museum for our Bridal session, they have so much to offer for gorgeous landscaped pathways, flowers, trees and grassy areas, plus a gorgeous park down a hill that has ponds with lillypads and gazebos, I was really excited to see all that was there!
Doesn’t she have the most gorgeous smile you’ve ever seen a Bride have? Thank you Clare for trusting me to capture you in your wedding dress, you looked stunning!
I loved her flowers! They were such a pretty mix of Pinks and greenery! Look at those blue shoes she wore! That was her “something blue”. So cute!
A little glance at her beautiful Engagement ring and her beautiful bracelet! Great choice Matthew! It’s stunning!
And to end things nicely, her mother was there to cheer her on, and to make sure she didn’t get anything dirty! Look at how precious they are! I love seeing mom’s and daughters together before the wedding day, it makes me think of my daughter and the day thats inevitably coming some time in the future! Love the little “Wife secrets” she whispered in her daughters ear 🙂 So cute!
