  • Welcome to Birdsong Photography

There’s so many completely amazing moments to this wedding….

 

One of which was standing in the middle of the street in downtown Tulsa and having the bridesmaids scream at me as loudly as they could. Why? I have no earthly clue, but it made a fun photo, and that’s what I wanted. 

 

The entire day was amazing. Starting out at the Skyloft in Tulsa, then heading over to the University of Tulsa where Matt originally proposed to Andrea with a brick he’d had made and placed on the grounds there, and then finally ending up at the completely awesome Cain’s Ballroom for the reception. 

 

The night ended with one of my favorite sparkler shots I’ve ever done. The added bonus was that the location we were in that night was just a little bit sketchy, and we scared off some kids making out in their car that was parked close by. Come to think of it, if I was somewhere in the middle of the night trying to make out with someone in a car, and suddenly this bearded bald guy showed up and started yelling at these two people to keep kissing and hold still while he ran around them in circles with sparklers….I’d probably freak out and go home, too. 

 

Sorry, kids. 

 

To Andrea & Matt, thanks for an absolutely wonderful wedding day.

I’ve always had one rule regarding engagement sessions – as long as you have someone to bail all of us out of jail, I’m up for anything when it comes to the shoot itself. 

 

And while (thankfully) we didn’t need bail money for this session, or a paramedic, we still went a little bit crazy going down the side of some cliffs in San Diego to play on the beach. Throw in a banjo and some fur-babies, and we had a perfect shoot.

Brian and Melissa are getting married later this year in the great state of Montana, and I’m stupid excited to hang out with them for that. This day ended in dinner and drinks, followed by an impromptu bluegrass jam session back at their place that evening. That did not suck. 

 

Dear San Diego, you kind of rock.

Engagement sessions make me happy. 

 

Engagement sessions with really adorable people that are stupid about each other makes me even happier. 

 

I shot the wedding for these two lovebirds this last weekend out at the gorgeous Skelly Lodge, and it was a fantastic day. These are from their engagement session a few months back, which consisted of hanging out downtown and acting like dorks for a couple of hours. 

 

Oh. And. Dat ring, doe.

I love California. 

 

I also love the fact that this wedding was the second time I’d gotten to hang out with this family. The last time I’d gotten to hang out with everyone was at a wedding in Montana that ended up with me adopting a goat, the family adopting me, and everyone shooting guns at a stump. 

 

That’s a true story. 

 

This time around, we all met up in Los Angeles for Amanda and Dan’s wedding. The day was absolutely gorgeous, and I loved getting to spend time with these amazing people again. Throw in some freaking awesome views and some pink hair, and the entire day kicked ass. 

 

Dearest adopted California family, thanks for all the love and support. 

 

Group hug.

This session holds the record for the fastest shoot/edit/run to Walgreens at midnight to print (Never do that. Ever. Ever, ever.) so they could be used for the reception at the wedding the next day.  I think from the time we finished shooting to the time we were printing them off was about 3 hours. The crappy hotel wifi and the two extremely overpriced long island iced teas from the hotel bar probably added a few more minutes to that number, but still. It was quick. 

 

Winn and Novak are an absolutely adorable couple in South Florida that I got to spend some time with a few weeks ago. South Florida had the bright idea to be really freaking cold that weekend, but regardless we had a blast and made some fun photos. 

 

More from their wedding shortly….
