Whitney + Richard | Tulsa Wedding Photographer | Rachel Photographs

These two met freshman year of college at OU–a relationship built upon 6 years of friendship and love.  The prettiest venue with flowers, mushrooms, and bumblebees–Canyon Crossing at Sand Springs (even though I’m based in OKC, I love being able to call myself a Tulsa Wedding Photographer too).  A giant tree swing (I want one).  A whimsical alter and tons of fresh flowers.  Yard games.  Board games.  A jazz band.  Too many succulents to count.  Every shade of green you can think of, including shades of green in the bride’s shoes and ring.  An incredibly touching first look that had the bride and groom both crying.  Glances towards each other that would make one melt.  Genuine, booming, contagious laughter.  Enthusiastic dancing.  Pizza (!!!) from Andolini’s for dinner.  The most accommodating family.  The most authentic love.

This wedding was one for the books.  Whitney and Richard’s big day was full of joy and the tiniest, most perfect details.
Whitney made a gorgeous bride (I’ll be blogging her bridal session soon!) and Richard made a dapper groom.  Together they rule.

Sometimes weddings make me feel very lucky as a photographer.  This day was like that.  I did more second-long happy dances than I could count.  Everything was perfect.  I got to laugh while I worked (and lots of the laughter was sparked by Whitney or Richard).   They fed my second shooter, Colleen of Wild Light Photography, donuts in the morning and pizza in the evening.  I now consider Whitney and Richard my friends (not just because of the food, either), and if that’s not a testament to their wedding day, I don’t know what is.

A huge congratulations to the happy couple!  I wish you two many more years of love and joy.

I went a bit overboard in picking favorites to blog.  I mean, what’s new?  So, here’s an abundance of photos from the day that I hope you all enjoy as much as I enjoyed being there and taking them.
