Sara & Wade – Lake Hefner Engagement Session – OKC Photographer


This Lake Hefner engagement session was SO sweet.

Sweet Sara and Wade! I love seeing walls come down as I shoot – between the two of them and then them with me! The more time we spent together, the more fun (I think) they both had and that came through so well in these images! Just look at Wade’s smile!! We switched between some fun prompts and traditional posing. My favorite was when I told Wade – “Okay, swing her around like a dead body!” – they killed that one!! Can you tell which photo it was?

Side note – I hadn’t shot at Lake Hefner since Hope & Taylor’s holiday session last fall and it looked COMPLETELY different!

It was wonderful to catch up with these two and get to meet their sweet doggies! (Shoutout to Sara’s mom and brother for helping wrangle the puppies!) Cannot wait for their wedding in September! Follow along on Instagram for more of the latest.
