Blue Dome District – Tulsa Oklahoma
One of my favorite things about being a photographer is meeting and photographing wonderful people in some of the coolest places each state has to offer. Todays session takes us to the Heart Land, Tulsa Oklahoma. Downtown Tulsa in the Blue Dome District to be exact. Oh yeah I almost forgot to mention it was probably one of the coldest days this Florida boy has experienced in a heck of a long time. Hence why most of the session was captured indoors and began with hot coffee and lattes.
Iconic Dilly Diner
This romantic lifestyle session began with warm lattes in the iconic Dilly Diner in Downtown Tulsa Oklahoma. With the smell of fresh coffee and pastries in the air this location was a perfect starting point to begin our short tour of the Blue Dome District.
Lifestyle photo session Hurts Donuts Tulsa OK
After finishing up our coffee we ventured outside for a brisk walk to our next location. Beautiful red brick and colorful art work enveloped the sides of many of the historic buildings around us. Creating the perfect backdrop for a few candid shots along the way. Turning the corner we came to one of the coolest artisanal donut shops in the area, Hurts Donuts. What a cool place, it had many of my favorite elements which make for a great lifestyle photography session. Warm tungsten lighting, colorful walls, different textures, yummy sweets and most of all it was WARM. After grabbing a donut called “Jesus is Heavenly” from what I understand tastes like a churro, we explored our surroundings. With a little sweet sampling and dancing I continued to click away as the two had their moment in this unique and romantic donut shop.
Wrapping up the session we found ourselves in front of some bright artwork on the side of an old pawnshop. As the sun went down and the temperature followed we brought the session to a close and bundled up. What a wonderful way to end the year! We look forward to a wonderful and romantic 2018. Enjoy the photos!
