- PHOTOS THAT FEEL LIKE YOU -
Hi, I'm Payton! I'm a local and destination wedding + elopement photographer based in Oklahoma City. In a world that puts so many expectations or obligations to tradition when it comes to a wedding day, I am here to empower couples to plan a day that feels true to them. Whatever kind of celebration you’re planning - an elopement just the two of you, an intimate ceremony with just your closest friends and family, or an all-day party - I am here to help and document every moment in a relaxed and candid way. Along with being your badass photographer, I’m also your hype man, your wardrobe assistant, your dance partner, your guide.
I specialize in outdoor intimate weddings + elopements. I am passionate about working with couples who are intentional about celebrating their wedding however they want, who love a good adventure, and who are, of course, crazy deeply in love with each other. As a lover of the outdoors, I believe the outdoors are for everyone. And as a queer woman, I also believe love is for everyone. I have built my business around inclusivity, kindness, and appreciating the earth. Photography is my dream way of spending my life telling the stories of adventurous couples, exploring new places, celebrating love, and capturing unforgettable moments.
I grew up loving stories, hiding away in my room and reading for hours on end. But when I finally picked up a camera for the first time, I realized stories weren't just found in books. They are told through moments, through a gaze, through the way two people in love hold each other. Your photos will contain every moment and emotion. From the anticipation as you’re getting ready, to the moment you look into each other's eyes and say "I do" for life, to the faces of the people you wanted there to witness it, these will be photos that make you feel.
