katie and matt [oklahoma city wedding photography]

Katie and Matt’s beautiful March wedding at Rose Briar Place reminded me of why I love first dances so much. While some couples take the opportunity to get creative and show off their graceful skills or sense of humor by entertaining their guests, others enjoy it as the first still moment of the day when the can close their eyes and just be present. Tense muscles finally relax and tears of relief and joy appear. I know it’s the making of a Hallmark card commercial, but in this brief moment when new couples are lost in their own bliss and fathers sway the daughters they once rocked, I pull out the tissue from my pocket, blink hard so my eyes still focus through the lens, and ultimately feel so grateful to be in the presence of Love.


Sarah - Negeen, these photos made me gasp, they are that stunning. Look at the one where the bride’s blue shoes are showing! You are truly talented my dear. Love, Sarah

Ali Akbar - The photo in which the bride is resting her head on the gentleman’s shoulder gives such a warm, “I’m gonna miss you” kinda feeling. And the flowers in her hair look like doves at dawn. You deserve a thousand hugs for that photo Negeen. Brilliant.
