Jesenia and Brian

Jesenia and Brian were already married when he went to Iraq, but they wanted a real wedding when he came home. I was honored to be their photographer. They were married February 23rd at Saint Boniface Catholic Church in Fort Smith.

Newcastle Bridge

There are some nice old bridges remaining around Oklahoma if you know where to look.
I had a photo shoot planned that didn’t work out, so I took the opportunity to take some cool photos at the old Newcastle Bridge, also called the Ozark Trail Bridge, near Newcastle Oklahoma.

The bridge spans the South Canadian River and was Oklahoma’s first federal aid project. It opened in 1923, but sits unused beside the Interstate 44 bridge today. You can still see the original timber flooring on this neat old bridge. Before the bridge was built folks had to ford the river with their horses and wagons to travel down May Avenue in Oklahoma City to the farmer’s market.
