How does one become the best Oklahoma wedding photographer? First of all, you have to know Oklahoma! The best Oklahoma wedding photographer needs to know all of the best locations for portraits and weddings in OKC, Tulsa, and surrounding areas. He or she also needs to know the best Oklahoma wedding vendors, so that he or she can refer them to their clients. Secondly, it helps if the wedding photographer has a home base near OKC or Tulsa. While it doesn't affect his or her ability to do great work, it's nice to be able to visit that wedding photographer's studio to meet! Thirdly, the best wedding photographer in Oklahoma has to technically be the best wedding photographer in Oklahoma. He or she needs to have an innate understanding of the technical aspects of photography. The best wedding photographer in Oklahoma needs to be unparalleled in his or her ability to create, compose, and expose a photograph. He or she also needs to be able to do that over and over, hundreds upon hundreds of times per day. - from Lydia Royce Photography
first look summer wedding
Lai-Sin and Riley saw each other in a romantic first look before their beautiful outdoor wedding. I traveled from Oklahoma to Blum, TX to photograph their big day and was blown away by the thoughtfulness and beauty that they shared with their guests.
Lai-Sin gifted Riley with a bag of custom coffee, since he is a coffee addict and even surprised him with a coffee booth at their reception along with the food trucks that served their dinner.

After you get engaged and begin planning your wedding you first need to decide what time of year you want to get married. Do you want a fall, winter, spring, or summer wedding? In Oklahoma, the weather is usually the nicest in the fall and spring, although springtime can bring along things like rain and tornadoes.
After you choose your season, begin looking at venues to see what dates are available. Oklahoma has so many nice wedding venues from barns, parks, lakes, mansions, hotels, and other classic buildings. My favorites are The Dominion House in Guthrie, The Skirvin Hilton in downtown OKC, Belmar Golf Club in Norman, and The Magnolia Room in Oklahoma City.
After you select your season, venue, and then your date it's time to begin your search for a wedding photographer. There are many talented Oklahoma wedding photographers, many are based out of OKC and Tulsa, and it's important to find one whose style you like best. My personal style is true to life bold colors in a photojournalistic style of shooting. I like to document Oklahoma weddings in backyards, ballrooms, and rooftops.
One of my favorite creative shots for Oklahoma weddings is the silhouette. This shot tells a story about the scene, while the couple are in a shadow. This creative type of portrait is not common in Oklahoma City or Tulsa, but it's something that I excel at as part of my brand.
