The Historic Mayo Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma was the backdrop for Jamie and Keith’s “I Do” day. So, here’s a little rundown of the day. Jamie was simply breathtaking in her dress, all the children in the procession walked right down the aisle without incident, the rings were not misplaced, the flowers were beautiful, the food was delicious, the cake was decadent, and the music extremely danceworthy. Jamie’s attention to detail was apparent in all things… large and small. Now, the hotel that was built in 1925, is now on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and has hosted many of the nations most notable 20th century visitors, can now add Jamie and Keith’s wedding venue to it’s list of noteworthy events. Thank you, Jamie and Keith, for allowing Bella Blu Photography to capture your day.
Shannon and Jeb showed up to Washington for their Engagement shoot with Jeb’s three loves… Shannon, his bike, and his truck. Together, we battled the mosquitoes, braved the heat and left with some great images that truly reflect their love for each other. With their unexpected personalities that kept me laughing the entire afternoon, Shannon and Jeb are the kind of couple that makes what I do seem less like work and more like… well, fun.
A few weeks ago, I was feeling that what was once my passion was beginning to feel very much like a “j-o-b”… then, these adorable little chicks show up for a Saturday afternoon shoot and I am reminded of why I LOVE doing what I am blessed to be able to do. Smiles and giggles were in no short order, to say the least. As a matter of fact, I found myself giggling right along with them as I waited for them to stop so I could actually take a picture. Then, while editing their images I found myself smilling all over again. In a profession where I am constantly reminding people to “smile”, I enjoy little moments like these when they remind me to smile:)
Well, I’ve done it! I have officially figured out this whole blogging thing and made my website a thing of the past. I know, I know… I’m a few years behind the curve, but better late than never. Now, the true challenge ensues… the actual blogging!
