Vibrant Engagement Session at Bradford House & Myriad Gardens in OKC

When choosing a location for your engagement session, why only go with one? To have both an urban and nature feel in their photos, Dylan & Olivia opted for two locations – The Bradford House & Myriad Botanical Gardens in OKC.

Each of these locations alone speak for themselves.

For an entire experience leading up to the engagement session, Dylan & Olivia stayed overnight at The Bradford House – a boutique hotel full of stunning interior design that screams both modern & vintage with its unique color palette & classic furnishings. When I met them there, they were in the middle of a game of chess – totally inspired by their recent Netflix obsession – The Queen’s Gambit. (100% worth the watch I say). Dylan was trying his best to teach Olivia while I snapped a few photos. We then roamed around the boutique hotel with its many colorful corners & vibrantly painted rooms. Among my favorite areas is the Lantern Room – covered in pink & intentional details. The Bradford House is a magical place that I’ll forever want to visit again and again.

Although it was a pretty chilly day, we lucked out with having two indoor locations. Our next stop was the Myriad Botanical Gardens in Downtown OKC – where you’ll find the Crystal Bridge Conservatory. It is home to thousands of beautifully displayed tropical plants, a small waterfall, and a sky bridge. We explored the giant garden, stopping to smell the “roses (aka smelly plants),” and took a huge look around. Imagine getting to skip down the sky bridge – overlooking giant palm trees & 13,000 square feet of plants, because that’s pretty much how our time went. I left feeling so inspired by our locations & grateful I’ll get the chance to photograph Dylan & Olivia again for their wedding!

“Hiring Jordan is literally the easiest decision you could make for your engagement/wedding (or any photos you could ever want). She’s the most genuine person, so immensely talented, and a wonderful business woman! Her attention to detail and creativity is impeccable and the entire experience was so easy, comfortable, and fun, especially for two people who are super awkward in front of a camera. She goes above and beyond for EVERYTHING, and I literally cannot wait for her to capture our wedding! If you want photos that look and feel like YOU to the point where they continuously make you the best kind of emotional, don’t second guess it just go ahead and hire her!”
