As the day came to an end, we obviously could not resist taking more pictures.  The original goal during their photography session for couples portraiture was to get some of the fireworks, maybe integrate some sparklers as well.  However, as with most weddings, nothing goes as planned in most cases.  But that is a-okay, because we instead were able to capture the beautiful sunset and some wonderful imagery in the countryside of Wichita Falls, Texas.  By the end of the day we were all exhausted from the heat, but it was well worth it.  I loved capturing these two love birds and their very apparent love for one another!  Having a 4th of July wedding was indeed a brilliant idea since we were then able to find places that were more secluded and allowed us some privacy out in the fields.  I'm looking forward to booking many more weddings in Wichita Falls!

And their post-ceremony family portraits here:


As most weddings go, we did family portraits at the lake at the wedding Rob and Carolyn hosted in small town of Burkburnett, TX which is just 20 minutes from Wichita Falls, TX on the Texoma border.  We had a great time taking advantage of the fact that their closest relatives were there!  Everyone was looking fabulous, the colors were perfect and we had plenty of laughs as the result of adult humor and great conversation!

It was with absolute pleasure that Carolyn had approached me and asked for my pricing for wedding photography.  I try and be as reasonable as possible, so I aimed to work within her budget and ultimately ended up having a great time shooting their wedding.  The wedding took place on the 4th of July, 2015 and she had explained she had something a little bit more country-themed in mind.  Of course I jumped on the opportunity being as excited as could be!
I met with her several times over the phone, email and in person to discuss her likes, disliked, what they planned on wearing, who was attending many other details that may seem minor to some, but for me, I find these to be exceptionally important.  

Carolyn met Rob awhile back and they had dated continuously.  Although the devastating news came about that he would be moving to Wichita Falls, Texas where it would become very difficult to maintain a relationship.  So they did what anyone would do in that situation and took a break from their relationship.  Like the old saying goes, "When you love something let it go.  If it returns, it was meant to be."

This couldn't be further from the truth, as their unrequited love led them back to one another. 

The day of their intimate wedding was a hot Texoma day where the sun was beaming and was set lakeside in Burkburnette, TX.  Family from across the country attended, and the dubbed "telecommunications specialist of the wedding", Rich was happy to assist in Skyping in friends and family who could not make it.  Amazing what technology allows us to do these days!  The photographs shown are in story-format.  That is, they are shown from the moment Rob and Carolyn began hiding from each other on opposite ends of the parking lot, moving onto the ceremony, exchange of rings, exchange of vows, a final prayer and the infamous kiss.  

After the ceremony we snapped some family portraits which can be found here:

Congrats, Rob and Carolyn!
