I met Vanessa and her twin sister Rachel four years ago in Krakow, Poland during World Youth Day. We had so much fun on that trip walking around, celebrating our Catholic faith, and getting to see Pope Francis! So as you can imagine, I was so excited last year when Vanessa reached out & told me that she was engaged to Paul! Although she lives in Maryland, they planned for their winter wedding pictures to be in Oklahoma so she could celebrate with all her friends and family. More on their winter wedding celebration later!
There are many perks of doing a bridal session before your wedding. Vanessa wanted to do a bridal session so she could do a hair and makeup trial with her mom and and see how the alterations fit on her satin dress. Everything turned out beautifully and Vanessa left her bridal session confident in her wedding day look!
We chose to photograph her winter wedding pictures outside at Gilcrease in Tulsa. It was a cold December day, but luckily Vanessa brought her mom and sisters to help fluff her dress and her bridal cape to keep her warm in between pictures! Here are some of my favorite images from Vanessa’s bridal session:
Thank you Vanessa! You looked absolutely rosy and radiant in your wedding dress. I’m so honored you chose me to be your photographer, and I can’t wait to share your winter wedding pictures at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on the BLOG. Stay tuned for more pictures from Vanessa and Paul!
