I’ve known Hailey and Austin for several years as we went to SWOSU at the same time! I took Hailey’s portraits back in her pageant days and in turn, took Austin’s senior portraits as he graduated SWOSU!
When I got the email from Hailey that they wanted me to be their wedding photographer, I about fist pumped and danced through my living room. I am SO excited for these two as they tie the knot this year and that I get to witness it!
Downtown OKC Engagements
Hailey and Austin met when they both attended SWOSU. Hailey was in many pageants, and won the Miss SWOSU pageant in 2014 while Austin was the student body president. They would bump into each other off and on, but really hit it off when Austin had the pleasure of driving Hailey through Downtown Weatherford, OK for the SWOSU Homecoming parade. They’ve been inseparable ever since!
To get the party started for our downtown OKC engagements, we began with some photos with their good boy Bentley who was the sweetest boy in all the land! I couldn’t believe how good he was and how many times he looked at the camera for me. As you can tell, he gets no lovin’s from his people at all.
We of course took a few without our best good boy, but let’s get real. Bentley was the star of this session.
Making Our Way Downtown
You know you totally sang that in your head like Vanessa Carlton. If you didn’t, you’re too young for me. Haha! Anyway, we moved a little further into OKC and went for a more modern look for our next outfit change. Let me be the first to say, HOLY FIRE. These two were SMOKING!
The Final Stop
We ended our evening on a rooftop in Midtown where we could see the beautiful OKC skyline. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really come to love this city. It didn’t surprise me when Hailey and Austin specifically requested to have it in their final pictures.
Such a wonderful couple inside and out. We had so much fun, and I literally cannot wait until their wedding next month!
See you soon!
