“We were friends for a while and started playing music together- and then we just fell in love!” Leslie said through a huge, giggly smile, while holding hands with Dylan as we walked between shots. That’s the best way to sum up shooting engagements with these two. CLEARLY they are adorable, and their natural propensity as performers made them comfortable showing off their infectious chemistry for the camera. It was too easy! We raced around midtown and downtown Oklahoma City chasing the overcast day’s elusive peaks of sunlight, and it felt like a to good to be true (in OKC) Fall evening.

Tessa & Johnny are a cute, and might I add super stylish, couple who wanted modern, fashion-inspired images. We started in the elegant and formal venue where they’ll be getting married later this year, the First National Center in downtown OKC. Then we walked around hitting various iconic areas and ended at the OKC Myriad Gardens.

I was so blessed to play a part in Caleb and Melissa’s big day. Caleb has been a good friend since I was a freshman at UCO, and I have gotten to know and love Melissa over the past couple years. They are so great together, and we were presented with such solid evidence of this throughout their whole wedding.

They got married at the beautiful Dresser Mansion in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

























Finally getting my third and last WPPI post up! On our last day in Vegas we visited an area called El Dorado Canyon in Nelson, NV.

On the way to our intended location, we decided to pull off the road and get some fashion-style shots in the pure desert scene. Although the Vegas landscape doesn’t vary much, it was a refreshing difference from Oklahoma, and we had so much fun shooting in the dry sand, with a backdrop of mountains.

It was still pretty early in the day, so we did what we could with the lighting! It wasn’t ideal, but the “harsh desert sun” look really added to the concept in a way.






Who doesn’t love a good proportion illusion?
 
The next set of pictures are actually in El Dorado Canyon. Their property is littered with cool vintage objects, old cars, a few barns, and even a wrecked airplane. This location has been used in parts of big productions such as 3000 Miles to Graceland, and has also been used as a shooting location for big name musicians and fashion photographers.



We found a gutted bus that we could have easily shot in for hours! The entire inside was painted white, creating an amazing, natural reflector. Behind the scenes shot of Catie Bartlett:


The photo of me on the left was taken by Catie:



These last couple of Catie were taken by the place crash scene.



As I mentioned before, we definitely plan on returning to WPPI 2013- hopefully you can see why!
