Eric & Austin

The first time we ever met Eric was at Ryan’s little sister’s wedding, many moons ago. Ryan had recently read that a good idea to get the photo booth going at a wedding was to choose one groomsman and ask him to lead the pack on getting people excited about it. And, unknowingly, Ryan pretty much picked the best human on the planet for the job. Eric is one of those guys that everyone loves and had an air about him that makes people want to be near him. And he also likes taking pictures. So that wedding still holds the current award for most photo booth pictures ever. Which, if I can remember correctly, is over 1,200. 

We, like most people, fell in love with Eric and told our sister and her husband that if Eric and his equally lovable boyfriend ever got married, we would 100% love to shoot their wedding. So when I heard that Eric & Austin had gotten engaged, I secretly was hoping that they’d contact us. And when they did, I couldn’t have been more excited! We feel so honored to have gotten to document such love, Eric & Austin thank you for this opportunity.

Puebla, Mexico Engagement Session

Stacey & Shawn sat across from me at my dining room table and gave me the hard sale to convince me to travel with them to Mexico for their engagement session. Little did they know all they had to say was 70 degree weather while Oklahoma is in the 40s. Honestly I’m really not a hard sell to travel because I love going to new places, and I especially love getting to photograph in new spots. I will admit that I am a Europe girl, that’s where my heart gets pumping travel wise, but I was still excited to go to Puebla City and see why it is Stacey’s favorite spot in the world. 

It was a pretty easy trip from OKC, one connection and one bus ride all in the time zone. Left at breakfast and was there for a mid afternoon snack…of tacos of course! After a walking tour (via Stacey) of the city, I was hooked. I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t ever heard of this beautiful place before! The architecture is gorgeous, delicious food, friendly people & a city rich of culture. The gem of the city is the Cathedral located in the city center where the legend is that bells in the bell tower were so large that they could not be transported up the tower, but overnight they were hung by the angels. One of the local specialties is a pottery that had a predominantly blue & white pattern (and some colors) that is called Talavera which we had fun shopping for and being inspired for the design of Stacey & Shawn’s wedding.

I’m a fan y’all, take me back.
