I am Amanda Bringham, owner and lead photographer at Picturesque. I am an avid bookworm, a hopeless gardener and lover of sunny days. I started as a photojournalist, turned wedding photographer and never looked back. Check out this video by the one and only PenWeddings of me in action at our 16 acre outdoor studio.
Taylor and Derek are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet! I just loved getting to know them more on their engagement shoot last weekend. We went to Utica Square first for some pretty architecture then to Woodward Park. It was the most perfect day for a session – 70 degrees and no wind. I can’t wait for this sweet couple’s wedding this Fall at Spain Ranch!
This girl! We are 10 years apart in age but I feel like she’s the little sister I never had. She contacted me about 4 years ago out of the blue and asked if I was accepting interns for photography. It was something I had been thinking about and I took it as a sign that I should go ahead and do it. Since then she has been my intern and even shot a wedding with me recently. She also nannied for my son during the first year of his life. She has become part of our family and I’m so happy she stepped into our lives. Rachel recently graduated from OSUIT with a degree in graphic design and is rocking the working world as I knew she would! We decided to celebrate with a photo shoot. Congrats, Miss Rachel! We love you!
Isn’t she cute in her cap and gown?! 😉
I kicked off my 2016 weddings with Shanice and Ronnie’s gorgeous wedding at Tulsa Garden Center. I used to work with Ronnie so it was a pleasure being a part of his big day. It was great to see so many people from the Community Care College, Clary Sage College, and Oklahoma Technical College family! The garden center was the perfect location for a winter wedding and it was expertly decorated with whites and bare branches. So pretty! Congrats, you two! Here are a few of my faves from the day.

Shanice, you were a stunning bride!
I was technically shooting solo but I took it as an opportunity to let my intern come along and try out a wedding. She did some shooting as well and captured this beautiful shot of the ceremony decor. Great job, Rachel!
Rachel captured this lovely shot of the bride and her father (above) and all of the shots from the center aisle of the ceremony. Love!
We snuck out right after the ceremony and got a few portraits in the greenhouse before it closed. I just love shooting in this building! The light is amazing!
I love the shot below on the left that Rachel captured, such a sweet moment! This couple took dancing lessons from Hugo with Lion’s Road and had so much fun with it!
Bouquet toss! These girls wanted it!
Isn’t this the sweetest ring bearer you’ve ever seen?!
Joanna and Austin are getting married in March so we were in a bit of a time crunch to get the engagement photos taken so that they can send out their invitations. We were scheduled for the beginning of January then it snowed all morning with wind chills in the 20’s during shooting time so we decided to put it off a week. The next weekend was worse with wind chills in the teens but we decided to go for it. This was by far the coldest shoot I have ever done…and if I was cold bundled up in my giant coat with 3 layers of socks, the couple was absolutely frozen. They didn’t complain once though and we got some really great shots. Their love for each other is infectious! Here are a few of my favorites shots. We did some downtown and some at the studio.
