One of my Favorite Wedding Photos by Sunny Thomas

This is one of my favorites.  It’s not what you would typically expect.  The photo you may have expected might have been a bride walking down the aisle or a bride and groom kissing.

While those can be beautiful images, I am drawn to this one because of the story it tells.   It may seem like just a group of friends sitting around the fire, but there is so much more.  The wedding ceremony is over.  The reception is almost over.  The bride and groom are chatting with their guests inside.  The bridal party’s responsibilities have ended.  So they go outside and sip some wine and enjoy the warmth of the fire.  They kick off their shoes and reminisce about the fun times they’ve had in the past.  They know that after today, their tribe will be different.  Things won’t be like they once were.   So they pause and they savor this moment.

Every wedding can have hundreds of these types of moments.  As a photographer, I look for these special moments. My job is to capture these brief instances so that you can cherish them forever. When the wedding ends, you’ll forget about the food and the flowers.  All that’s left will be your photos to help your remember these special moments.

Looking back - When Jeff and Meagan Got Married by Sunny Thomas

Over the past 8 years, I’ve had the privilege of photographing many, many weddings.  It has been a great experience to step into peoples lives on their happiest day and record all the moments that they may otherwise forget.  I get to help preserve those memories.  Couples will use those wedding pictures to reminisce with each other and to share those memories with their kids and grandkids.

One of my favorite weddings I got to photograph was my nephew’s.  He and is wife just celebrated their third wedding anniversary.  So to mark the occasion, I went through their photos again.  It was great to be able to look back at the photos and relive the day.

Here are some of my favorites.

After years of working at home, Starbucks, Panera Bread, and Chick-fil-A, we now have an office we can call our own.  We're located at Edmond Photo which is at 2300 W Danforth Rd, Suite 130 in Edmond, Oklahoma.  We're near the intersection of Danforth and Santa Fe.  It's nice to have a dedicated space to work in.  At Edmond Photo, we also have access to a studio space.  So we are also excited to offer our clients the option of indoor portraits.  It's nice to have that option when the temperature is 105 outside.  We're excited to give you a tour of the place.  Come by and say hello!

Mary and Ephantus Got Married by Sunny Thomas

It was a beautiful day at Will Rogers Park in Oklahoma City.  On this Saturday in May, Mary and Ephantus were joined as one.  It was a beautiful ceremony and reception.  It was very cool to see how they incorporated their traditions throughout the day.  One that I especially liked was when all the women at the reception would go out of the building and meet the bridal party as they are walking to the reception.  The women greet the bridal party as they are singing and dancing.  Then everyone joins in the singing and dancing as they enter the reception area together.  It was a pleasure to photograph.  You can see the some of my favorite pictures in this highlight video.  Enjoy!
