The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is one of our favorite places to visit in Oklahoma. So when our dear friends, Anna and Jesse, asked us to photograph them out in the wilderness (because, hey, they are THE Wilders), we were beyond thrilled.
Even though the weather didn’t look too great as the hills loomed near, we were determined to make things happen. We started off at Mt Scott. There were huge rocks, tourists and plenty of bees but the view was incredible. Soon after, everyone was asked to leave, as the lightning was getting a little too close for comfort.
The rest was a mini picnic that involved cake, in between bouts of rainfall. We should probably mention that this shoot was for their one year anniversary. One year down, many more to go!
With the Oklahoma weather, you just never know what is going to happen. We weren’t ready to quit shooting just yet, so we asked if Anna and Jesse would be up for some rain shots. They happily obliged. And what troopers they were! The rain was cold but the photos were well worth it. Their love is captivating, and we’re glad to have gotten a chance to witness these perfectly imperfect moments (rain or shine) with them.
P.S. This whole set was envisioned by Rebecca Glass (The beautiful and better half) and assisted by Lenin (The O.K. Husband)
