My Mission

"I have been blessed to be a part of the wedding industry for the past 12 years and with each year my love for my brides and the fashion of weddings grows stronger and stronger. This year we strive to bring some of that wedding charm to our home town in everyday sympathy and occasion florals"

-Bobbye Jean

this is us

I started this journey in 2011 with a kit camera from Costco, with hopes of taking decent pictures of my new baby girl. A fellow Navy family paid me $40 to do some family pictures of them in a park, near my Washington State home. From there a business blossomed. 
After gaining a degree and a book of business, I took a leap and moved back to my hometown with my high school sweetheart and that little girl in tow.
Since 2018 we have been building a floral company. May 1 of 2023 we cant wait to open our first full floral and retail store in Antlers, Oklahoma.

I am in the business for creating lasting relationships, creating beautiful images and capturing your memories for years to come. So I am looking for a very specific type of bride, one who puts photography at the very top of her priority list. Also bride that wants a WEDDING EXPERIENCE.

I take a limited number of weddings per year to accommodate all my clients with full attention. I have learned over the last year that my brides crave to be catered to—and I'm here to do it. Weddings start at $2600.

let's be friends


Hooray! You and I are meant to be, now let's get official before your date get's booked! We typically book 12-18 months out, but don't worry we might still be open so contact us to see! 
We will send you a custom online booking proposal where you will be able to look over your package options, select a package, pay online and download your exclusive BJP Bridal Guide to help you plan out your most important photography details! 

let's be official


My Favorite part of the wedding process is meeting you in person and teaching you how to become pro models! Seriously, you will learn all the tips and tricks to get those super flattering images (and you get to use them whenever you want!) I bet I'll even get your groom on-board with pictures! Now that you're pros, your wedding day portraits will fly by with ease. 
Your BJP Bridal Guide will have all the details on how to plan out your engagement session—from time of year and time of day—to what to wear and location! 

the engagements


This is one of the most important parts of wedding planning. After booking, we will talk about how I create all the detail oriented wedding blog worthy imagery. We don't want you to miss out on one single shot that could have been a big wow factor, so we work very hard to create a custom timeline just for your event. We use everything from location to sunset, to help plan out your big day. 

After 6 years of shooting weddings we know the exact formula to create a picture perfect day. 

the timeline


It's time to capture the story! I will be there for all the little moments through out the day, my favorite part... the details. You have spent so much time and thought into your dress, shoes, invitations and so much more. I love spending the first hour of the day getting my creative brain in gear with your tiny details. 

Then onto hair and make-up, the dress, hopefully a first look (cause I want you to have a huge gallery), ceremony and the after party! We will put up some sneak peaks the following week to keep you on cloud nine! 

the big day


Yay! We made it through. During the busiest season it can take a little longer to get galleries back. Our normal timeframe is 8-10 weeks.

It will have a place for you to create your favorites, you can download all or just some at once and will also have the option to use our high quality professional printer. Just click add to cart and you are set to go. 

Some packages that came with an album will receive their draft 2 weeks after the gallery is available. It takes about 6 weeks to receive your album after it is ordered.

Bobbye is seriously one of the best photographers that I have ever had the privilege of working with! Her style and charm are second to none, and she is always up for anything! We loved her being the photographer and videographer for our BIG day. You are amazing at what you do, girl. Thanks again, Bobbye! We are so appreciative of you!


Bobbye Jean Photography is the best!! She was our photographer for our small, secret wedding ceremony at the Finley School. We had to plan a last minute ceremony before our official wedding (out of town) so that my husband's grandparents could attend. First off, Bobbye's pictures were AMAZING!! We've had several people tell us the pictures brought them to tears! I am so thankful my mother-in-law contacted her to capture this special day. Bobbye was also super respectful to when we wanted our pictures to be released on her blog. Thank you so much Bobbye! I'd recommend her to everyone!


It isn't every day you find a photographer this good! Bobbye does amazing work with our little boy Tatum and she is full of energy and excitement for him! Her work is amazing with a quick process return, and her prices are very reasonable! I would highly recommend her to anyone that is wanting to have professional photos taken!
