Jess & Andee

Andee and Jess are about the sweetest couple I have photographed!  They were so much fun and easy going.  They came down from Tulsa to have some engagement picutres done at the Myriad Gardens (where Jess proposed), but our plans were changed because of the renovations that they were doing at the time.  We were still able to get some amazing images, and some very funny ones of Jess’s brother helping him up onto one of the buffalos.  Enjoy your sneak peak guys 😉

I love the one above.  Its probably my favorite!

I really like this one too.

and this one…. can you have more that one favorite?

Sherri and Pete

I have known Pete for several years now, a lot more than I care to own up to. We like to give each other a hard time. Well, let me rephrase that. He likes to give me a hard time, and all the dorky things I say make it really easy for him. I had a blast hanging out with them for their engagement session, and enjoyed getting to know Sherri a little better. I especially enjoyed having some back up (and a little more amo) when I picked on Pete. We were all over Downtown OKC that evening.

We started off at the Stage Center. I had stopped shooting over here a few years ago, but I’m loving it again.

We walked over to the Myriad Gardens after that. The day was so beautiful. There were photographers everywhere!

I caught this in one of those “in between moments”. It’s so sweet.

Had to do a ring shot of course.

I can’t decide which I like better. Color, or black and white?

Congrats Sherri and Pete! Can’t wait to shoot you at your wedding! HA!!!!

Sarah + Matt = LOVE

Okay, that title was a little on the cheesy side. I had the privilege of photographing their wedding a few weeks ago, and am just now getting to post there sneak peek. That’s how crazy it’s been around these parts! The computer was sick, the kids were sick, and now it’s me. But I am feeling a little better now that my “To Do” list is slimming down (just in time for the holidays right?) I really enjoyed getting to know these two as I photographed their special day. Matt was cracking me up the majority of the time and Sarah is the one sweet lady! I have only known her a short time, but she has been through a lot in her life. She deserves to be happy.

 These guys were a blast.  Pretty much up for anything I asked them to do and more!  

The instigator of it all!

Sarah and their sweet, sweet baby girl.

I mentioned doing a “Trash the Dress” session to Sarah.  I think that she might do it.  I hope so, I would love to have those in my portfolio!

This was her mother’s handkerchief, who had passed away earlier this year. 

awww…. I just love this one.

The cake had a light silver sparkle on it.  unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture it in camera.  I was really pretty.

Congratulations Matt and Sarah.  I wish you a lifetime of joy.

Nathan & Heather

Whew… this post has been a long time in coming. The last couple of months have been hectic, and things don’t look like there slowing down at all! Which is a good thing…. maybe. This post will be short on words but long on pictures. I have tons of catching up to do. Congratulations Nathan and Heather, may you have a long and blessed marriage.

I have to stop and comment here on how much I love the image on the right. It’s probably my favorite from the entire wedding. Actually brought tears to my eyes. Nathan was looking at Heather like this all the way down the aisle. You can see all the love he has for Heather, and the joy knowing that she is his wife!

Technical stuff

My website will be temporarily off line for the next 2 to 3 days while I (attempt) to switch servers. You can still contact me at  pgillisphotoATyahoo.com (insert appropriate symbols) 😉   Have a fun and relaxing Labor Day Weekend!

Sneak Peak time!!

I got to meet up with these kiddos earlier this week.  I went to college with there mom… back in the day.  I think it was a Wednesday.  Wait, that’s not right.  Anyways.  So I have known the boys for about 9 years (that makes me feel really old).  I haven’t seen them in about  two or three years.  Let me just tell you; a lot changes in two or three years with boys.   But first let me introduce you to Miss A.  I personally think she one of the prettiest girls in town.   I couldn’t decide which conversion I like better… I just love the flowers.

This is Mr. B.  He has AMAZING eyes.  Just beautiful, and he likes to hide them behind his bangs.  What can you do, he’s 14.

Mr. C  was super sweet.  He was willing to help me with my reflector and getting his brothers and sister to laugh.

And this is Mr. E.  What a great smile!  I could just stare at his picture for ever.  He was so easy going.

the trouble makers  boys….  Did I mention that they just adored little Miss A?  I didn’t?  Well from what I saw they do.

Thanks for letting me come and hang out with you guys! 

On another note… I have a few spots still open in August, and September is filling up fast.  So contact me now if you want to schedule your appointment!!

Zac and Kyla

Let me start off by saying how sweet this couple is.  If I remember correctly there first date lasted over 12 hours.  They spent all night in brick town talking, and finished there date by eating breakfast at IHOP.  Just look at how much love is on their faces.
