My husband, Daniel and I are wedding and portrait photographers for classic romantic and joyful couples! We're based in in western Kentucky but available for travel worldwide.
Back in March we drove from Kentucky to northeast Oklahoma, hung out with my family for a day, then drove from there to west Texas for Jessica and Ryan’s engagement session and then drove to my friend’s house in Anadarko (southwest Oklahoma), woke up the next day drove back to northeast Oklahoma, spent the night and then drove back to Kentucky the next day.
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t think it was that bad, but Dan declared we would not be doing that much driving when it came time for the wedding, which makes me laugh since I did over half the driving while my co-pilot slept in the passenger’s seat.
It’s officially here though, Ryan and Jessica’s wedding week and it’s time to make the trek back to west Texas. This time though we’re driving to northeast Oklahoma hanging with my family and then hopping on a plane from Tulsa to Dallas the next day to make it in for a weekend in west Texas.
I don’t know if you noticed a common denominator here, but if I can work a trip to make a stop to see my people, I will. And despite my whiny co-pilot, it’s both of us that love our destination wedding couples. Dan would just rather fly to these places. 😉
It’s funny, Jessica actually booked with me because of another past destination bride. Remember Josh and Kelly’s Kansas City wedding? I love any reason to shoot outside my usual radius, but especially out west, so I literally screamed when Jessica’s inquiry email appeared in my inbox.
Since their wedding is in a different Texas town, it was important to Jessica to have her engagement shoot in her hometown, where her and Ryan met for their first date.
The weather had been beautiful, but as things will do, took a plunge for the 40’s, and if you’ve ever been to west Texas, you know wind is constant and reliable. So before you look at these I want you to envision 40 degree temps and ferocious winds.
Just so you can fully understand what troopers these two were.
Also, there are burros buried in this session. Come for the pretty photos, stay for the burros.
This session was shot in Jessica’s tiny Texas downtown, and then at various pastures of her family’s ranch. I love a session that gives me a reason to go home and I am SO excited for their wedding this weekend.
It may have been 40’s the first time we did photos, but this weekend we’re looking at 105, all outdoors, so hang tight friends, things are about to get western.
P.S. If you want to see the bts of Daniel and I from this session it is saved to the @twoarrowsphoto Instagram, and I promise there will be more coming this weekend.
Follow along for more beautiful love stories, life on the farm and every day encouragement. #twoarrowsphoto #danisquared
