Ahhhh…Katie and Jarod. They are pretty much the total package. Both are gorgeous, fit, fun, the nicest people and so so so in love. Katie was the most prepared bride I have ever photographed. She came with her own signs, plenty of outfits and even a football with the wedding date…gotta love that. She even worked a pair of red heals something fierce. We had such a great time and the weather was perfect. I truly wish the best for these two.
“Rain Rain…Stay Away”…that was the motto for this fun downtown engagement shoot. It had been raining for three days straight and it held off just long enough to complete the session. The ground was soggy and everything was wet, but that didn’t phase this couple one bit. They were such troopers and so much fun! With Tiffany’s gorgeous red hair and amazing smile, who needs the sun? And when she pulled out her red umbrella to add to the fun…I just died! So cute! Check it out…
Okay…you probably think I say this about all my clients (love all of them), but this couple really did capture my heart. Not only were they head over heals, truly in love…but they were the NICEST and SWEETEST peeps you will ever meet. Since Russell is in the military (big props), they have moved around a lot. His next assignment will take him to New York, so they are on the fast track to tie the knot in November of this year. I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with them and hope nothing but happiness in their future. Here is what some of our day looked like….simply perfect.
Did you know that you get your very own personalized website with every wedding package at Christie Conyer Photography? A wedding website is a place where you can easily find engagement photos, wedding photos, online-guest book and registry information. It is also an amazing way to share your images with friends and family. Other wedding sites don’t grow and change with you as a couple, while these showcase the evolution from engagement to long after the I-Do’s. Here is an example of one that I am doing for my amazing clients Erin and Mike. They are getting married in October and I can’t wait to showcase their wedding day. To explore all of the bells and whistles of this website go to www.erinandmike.christieconyer.com.
Are you in a wedding planning rut and everything is starting to look the same? Maybe you are starting to feel the weight of a tight budget?
Don’t hit the panic button just yet and check out these super hip wedding ideas. From “Save The Date” cards to a groomsman gift….Etsy has it all. Even a wedding dress.
Here are some of my personal favorites:
If white weren’t an option (or any close variation), what color of wedding dress would you choose? There will be some brides that think this sounds ridiculous and downright blasphemous. But, colored wedding dresses are a huge trend right now and it doesn’t look like they are going anywhere.
Designer Vera Wang recently released her Fall 2012 line. The line did not include one white or ivory dress. With dramatic designs in rose and black, there was no white in sight. The soft colored wedding dresses were stunning, beautiful, and turned heads on the runway. Retailer J. Crew is launching a line of colored wedding dresses for the bride that wants to stand out and David’s Bridal is followed suit by stocking wedding gowns in blush pinks and grays.
Not ready to give up the traditional white just yet? Choose two dresses…one for the ceremony and one for the reception in COLOR! According to two fashion studies done by TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com, most brides described their dresses as “elegant, romantic, feminine or classic” but more often than not, they’re looking for something “flirty and fun” to wear at the reception.
Personally, I am really torn on this question (and this comes from someone who wears head-to-toe black everyday). Part of me loves the purity and elegance of white, but I cannot deny how AMAZING some of these wedding dresses look in color. Check out these images of women who took the fashion-forward plunge and decide for yourself.

This past Sunday I participated in The OK Bridal show at The Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. This was my first Bridal Show, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I went all out on the look of my booth. I wanted it to really represent my personality and my style. Mission accomplished. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out…and from all of the positive feedback from the brides and other vendors was priceless.
I leave you with a picture of the booth. A special thanks to my mom, Marilyn and my friend Nicci. I couldn’t have done it without them.
