Bridal portraits aren't something I often get the pleasure of doing since I don't photograph weddings (yet!) so when I was asked to take pictures for Clytee I was so excited!
The Friday evening of Clytee's portrait session had called for rain all week, so I did a ton of research for possible indoor or covered locations in OKC to do her shoot. Friday rolled around and after all that research – and creating a pretty lengthy list of location options! – the sunshine was beaming and weather could not have been better! We ended up at our friend's home in Gaillardia Country Club and it was the perfect place for a bridal session!
Also perfect, Clytee's stunning dress and romantic hairdo! I just love all the intricate detail of her gown. Clytee was absolutely stunning on this day and even more so on her wedding day!
Clytee's now husband, Bear, is lifelong friends with my husband, Drew. Drew had the pleasure of getting to film their wedding day and I can't wait for the video to come out! (I'll be sharing it here when it's finished!) Their wedding was so incredibly sweet and their vows were extremely thoughtful. I had tears in my eyes the whole time!
Clytee is one of the sweetest souls. She is kind, thoughtful, puts others before herself and is also so chill and laid back! She's one of those people who being around makes you so relaxed. After our session, my husband and I got to have dinner with Clytee, her mom, and her mother-in-law. We had such a great time getting to know each other, laughing, talking wedding plans and also talking about Clytee growing up in the country. Maybe that's where she gets her laid-back personality!
This bridal portrait session was so much fun! Thank you, Clytee, for having me document part of this special time in your life! You're a gem!
