We’ve all been through the past two months together. Day by day the world was ever changing and no one really knew what was going to happen next! Except for Ben and Kathryne, who were determined to get married despite the circumstances. Although I am based in Tulsa, and call myself a Tulsa wedding photographer, I love traveling and took the role of Arkansas wedding photographers! Ben & Kathryne had to downsize their wedding, but their love and support for one another and by their family who still attended their elopement was nothing less than amazing and beautiful! Their original wedding was supposed to happen at The Kindred Barn, but their last minute decision to have a wedding on Mt. Seqouyah definitely didn’t disappoint!! As always…I always encourage my couples that the most special part of their wedding day is their MARRIAGE, and Ben and Kathryne knew that and believed that wholeheartedly…so despite the change in plans, their wedding day was still beautiful and their smiles speak for themselves of how much joy they felt.
On another note, I had the opportunity to sit down with Ben & Kathryne (before coronavirus ;D) to have lunch with them and learn all about their story. I don’t get to do that with every couple of mine, but it sure is special when I do! Especially since we didn’t have an engagement session together before their wedding it was a great way for us to become comfortable with one another and ease the stress that couples sometimes feel at first when they get professional photos taken! On the wedding day, I was able to call them both ‘friends’ which allows me to capture more genuine smiles and emotions – I love that!!
Stay tuned for their wedding day reception part 2 later this year where they get to celebrate with even more family and friends!
Also, I just have to say I am a bit jealous of Arkansas wedding photographers who get to have these beautiful mountains right in their back yards! I can’t wait to go back for more weddings in 2020. I may have to change my bio to “Arkansas Wedding Photographer” to get out here more ;D
Enjoy a sneak peek into Ben & Kathryne’s beautiful codiv-19 elopement!
