I truly love photographing proposals. And I really love shooting at Devou Park, especially this overlook. 😍 I’ve been shooting proposals for almost 10 years, and I’m proud to be able to bring a certain expertise to it. When Obi and I talked about his afternoon with Rylee, I was excited to get to help […]
I truly love photographing proposals. I’ve shot a number over the years, and they remain one of my favorite things to be a part of. It’s been a while since I was a wedding photographer, but getting to shoot these keeps me connected to that world, and I love it. One of my favorite parts […]
I stopped shooting weddings last year, so I love that I still get to shoot engagement sessions from time to time. Ben and Emma made this frosty morning so much fun. We started our morning at one of my favorite places for coffee: Quills in downtown New Albany. After a little caffeine, we walked around […]
Being a proposal photographer is so much fun and always exciting. I get to meet the best people, hang out in the coolest places, and see some of the most beautiful moments take place. This Lisse Restaurant proposal was no exception to all of those things. My favorite part of this night could easily have […]
This University of Cincinnati proposal was so much fun to be a part of. The weather was beautiful and the location was perfect. Oh, and the couple was one of the cutest and sweetest I’VE EVER MET. I love the details of every proposal, and this one was no exception. Under the ruse of getting family […]
Engagement sessions have always been some of the most fun sessions to photograph, and this session with Lisa and Jeff was no exception. We started our day in downtown Louisville at The Brown Hotel where these two will be married later this summer. It was easy to see their excitement for each other and for their big […]
When Andrew and I originally chatted about his proposal to Melanie, we planned for a Spring day in March on the Purple People Bridge. I envisioned a bridge full of people enjoying the weather – people I could easily blend in with, maintaining my proposal photographer anonymity. However, in true Cincinnati fashion, the Spring weather […]
Following all of my proposals, I love to take a few minutes to shoot a mini-engagement session. Scott and Devin are two of my best friends in this world, so I was beyond happy to shoot these photos of them following their big moment. We shot these just off the side of the road in […]
Sometimes, two people who mean the world to you decide to get married. You photograph their big moment, and then you spend a weird amount of time trying to write a post about them, but you come up short because sometimes words can’t do justice to the way you feel. (Scott’s hands… ta da! … haha!) . […]
This was a record-breaking proposal for me… it was the absolute darkest setting I’ve been asked to photograph. Quite the challenge, but I absolutely love that Lucas chose to ask Aubrey to be his bride under the glow of twinkling lights. Following the big question, we walked for a few minutes (it was FREEZING. and […]
Ashley and Corey, part two… I didn’t think it could get better than the last post, but goodness, I think this post just might take the cake. Aaaaah. I am obsessed!! ASHLEEEEEYYYY!!!!! The key to incredible photos? HAVE FUN! C +A:: ok, it’s official… I am DYING WITH ANTICIPATION FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY! You guys […]
Ashley and Corey are certainly going to have an incredible wedding day later this year. We squeezed the absolute last bit out of the fall colors for their engagement session – these colors were incredible, and these two were a dream to photograph. I took SO many photos of them on this day – I […]
As soon as I met them, I knew I was going to love Logan and Hugh. They are two of the most genuine and most caring people, and I am so thankful to know and photograph them. When Logan suggested shooting at the site of their future homestead, I was more than excited to do […]
When Tim emailed about proposing to his bride-to-be, I was more than excited to be there to document it! We planned on a sweet riverfront proposal, but a last minute festival had Tim scrambling to find a new location. We ended up at Cincinnati’s Xavier University, and it left me questioning why this wasn’t our […]
Noah and Victoria. Officially the cutest. Noah and Victoria:: you two are the best. These photos were so much fun, and your sweet love for each other was a joy to photograph.
I was so excited when Ryan, who is a currently a Pennsylvania resident, got in touch about surprising his girlfriend on the Mt. Adams steps in Cincinnati. Since she had no idea he was even in Cincinnati, he had to deploy some pretty stealthy hiding skills as she climbed the steps to where he was […]
Patrick did such a good job surprising his bride-to-be, not once, but TWICE on this day. To begin with, she had no idea that the little detour they were taking to the Mt. Adams steps wasn’t a part of a run-of-the-mill date night. I had never been to these steps before, but now that I […]
These two were engaged downtown on Reds Opening Day, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I was honored to be there to photograph it, as well as a quick engagement session following the big question. These are always some of my favorite photos because the bride-to-be is still settling into what just happened, and […]
Jake contacted me during a what I have been calling “proposal week” – I was contacted by FOUR grooms-to-be, but couldn’t make the timing work with anyone but Jake. I’d say that means this was absolutely meant to be, and I am SO THANKFUL! He couldn’t have been a nicer, kinder gentleman, and his bride to […]
Sydney and Eric. I officially love these two and can’t wait for their big day this summer! The morning of our session, weather forecasts were calling for extreme winds, and they didn’t lie. Not wanting to wait, we decided to push forward and shoot indoors at Louisville’s 21c Museum Hotel. We shot this first set […]
Jordan and Hannah. They are two of the best people we know, aaaaand as it just so happens, they are also two of the most incredibly good looking beautiful people we know (I can’t use enough adjectives on these two). I mean just look at them!! We opted for more of a mini-session, since they were […]
Chris and Stephanie. Y’all, prepare yourselves for photo overload because these two KILLED IT at their engagement session. They were beautiful. The setting was beautiful. The lighting was beautiful. OH MY WORD IT WAS ALL SO BEAUTIFUL. I hadn’t been to Mount St. Francis prior to this session, but WOW, this place is killer. We […]
Nicholas and Courtney. Entirely too sweet to describe, these two rocked their engagement session!! And, oh my gosh, THAT ROCK.C and N:: THANK YOU. Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer – I am SO excited for your big day. I can’t wait to see the two of you again in March!!
Mat and Leslie. WOW. Oh my word, WOW. I’ve said it 100x, and I’ll say it 100 more – we have THE BEST people in our lives. These two are incredible, inside and out. And, GOODNESS, they know how to pick a location for photos!! I WAS DYING at how perfect this little creek was. […]
Oh my word. My wittle baby Michael… he’s all grown up! (and he’ll probably die from embarrassment from this post) I love him to pieces – as a little boy, and now, as a young man. When I was younger, I would beg to babysit him (and his sister, Lindsay). I would have sat for HOURS and […]
Brandon and Megan… picture perfect and the sweetest pair. We began our session at the Sophian Plaza in Kansas City, and this building did not disappoint! Megan. You’re beautiful!We moved on to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and as always, it was a dream to shoot there.Brandon and Megan:: I can’t say it enough, but THANK […]
For all of my proposal clients, I am always excited to shoot a few engagement style photos following the big question. This is such a sweet moment, and I love gifting these images to my clients. To see Mike and Julie’s full proposal story, click here!
I don’t think I really even have the words for this proposal – it was just incredible! Mike emailed me about his plan to propose in the Cincinnati Airport, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVED that idea. Airports are special places to me, especially this one, so I was immediately on board. Then we talked […]
Jacob and Danielle. I have two words to describe these two: helllloooooo, beautiful! Or maybe hellllooooo perfection! Or hellllooooo AWESOME! I can’t choose. I just know that these two ROCKED IT! We began at Clarksville’s Lapping Park, and THE LIGHT. OH GOSH, THE LIGHT. And THE TREES. The treeeees. Oh, AND THESE TWO. Did I mention […]
Brian and Sheena. These two sure do make me smile. : ) Their proposal was so good, but having this photobomber along for these photos kind of takes the cake. Brian and Sheena:: I can’t say thank you enough. I also can’t convey how EXCITED I AM for your big day!! You guy are THE BEST!!!!!
Tyler and Lindsey – easily the world’s bravest and most dedicated couple and clients. Their engagement session took place on what HAD to be the COLDEST DAY ON THIS EARTH. I’m not even joking you. I have NEVER been so cold IN MY LIFE. BUT THESE TWO. Seriously, these two. They ROCKED the cold weather, […]
Tanner and Kelti. Also known as the world’s most ridiculously adorable pair.We took these in mid-December, and I think the high was only around -548* on this day. These two were awesome – they rocked it out like it was a balmy 10* day. :) I absolutely love these. Between the plaid blanket (man, I love plaid) […]
Oh my goodness, I’ve been dying to post this for WEEKS. There has been so much happening around here, but more on that later. For now, here is Sheena and Brian and their perfect proposal…Sheena has been one of my absolute best friends since we were 6(?). She’s been a part of some of the […]
More from this perfectly sweet evening. After watching a huge storm cloud roll in while shooting downtown, we knew we were quickly running out of any available light. We booked it over to Devou Park, where we had a couple of outfit changes and juuuuuuust caught the remaining daylight. We timed it so we would […]
THESE TWO. Oh my goodness, theeeeeese twoooooo. They are fantastically, wonderfully amazing. And ANYONE who knows either will absolutely agree with me. :) They’re so great, they warrant a two-part blog. That, and the fact that I have been SO behind, I owe it to them. We started their session in downtown Cincinnati – one […]
Meet Olivia and Justin. Also known as CUTE, CUTE, CUTE. We shot these photos at one of my faaaaavorite locations in Kentucky. And, apparently, it’s also a favorite to approximately 65,420 other photographers. :) At least, on this night it was. Every location I had in mind already had someone else shooting there, which, while […]
For all of my proposal clients, I am always excited to shoot a few engagement style photos following the big question. This is such a sweet moment, and I love gifting these images to my clients. To see Thad and Jen’s full proposal story, click here!
EEEEEK! OH MY WORD, this proposal is, hands-down, one of my favorites. Thad and Jen are THE SWEETEST, happiest, cutest couple around. And their proposal was nothing short of all of those things, as well. can you see the excitement in this one? I LOVE IT! those people in the back? they are family […]
Rachel and Jeremy are too cute for words. And they are so stinking in love. I LOVE IT. I told you. THE CUTEST. The photo below is definitely a fave. R and J:: It’s no secret – we love you guys to pieces. But, after this session, I think I like you even more! :) You two […]
I can’t even tell you how excited I was when these two decided on an early morning engagement session. Early morning light is oh-so-moody. I love it. And, my excitement tripled when I drove up the driveway ROADWAY to Avery’s parents’ home. That place is GORGEOUS. Then, add in the sweetest and most adorable groom-to-be, along […]
For all of my proposal clients, I am always excited to shoot a few engagement style photos following the big question. This is such a sweet moment, and I love gifting these images to my clients. To see Todd and Katie’s full proposal story, click here!
I wholeheartedly LOVE downtown Cincinnati. And, in photographing Katie and Todd’s proposal, I decided that I love the downtown riverfront EVEN MORE. But, enough about that. Meet Todd and Katie. Something else I LOVED? Getting to meet these two and photograph their riverfront proposal. It was all of my favorite things, wrapped into one. WOO! I […]
OH MY GOODNESS. I absolutely LOVE this couple. I was so excited when Brady contacted me a year and a half ago for this moment. And I was even more excited to get a follow up for these super sweet engagement photos. I had a ton of fun shooting these photos, but I think I would […]
Following all of my proposals, I shoot a few engagement style photos for the couple… to see this proposal in full, click here!
Miami University is officially on my list of places to photograph a wedding. SO, if you are getting married there, I’M YOUR GIRL. Or, even if you’re not, I can still be your [wedding photographer] girl. :) But while I’m waiting on that wedding, I’m perfectly happy photographing surprise proposals. :) Especially when they are this sweet. […]
So, this blog still doesn’t work right. And I can’t fix the problem, so it looks like I will be re-doing my website again. :| Thanks for hanging in there while all of this goes on. In the meantime, since you can’t leave a comment here, head over to facebook, and leave some love for these […]
Meet Sam and Abi. The boss and I CANNOT WAIT for their wedding in May. ABI. YOU ARE GORGEOUS. LIKE, WOW. These next two? My absolute FAVORITES of her. THIS LIGHT!!! It was SOOOOO money. That, plus these two – I was dying from the perfectness. So, about this time, the sun […]
This isn’t the first time I’ve been able to show off Brittany and Ryan, and, lucky me, it won’t be the last! With their November wedding quickly approaching, we squeezed in some beautiful, Kentucky fall photos, just in the nick of time. (by the way, are fall sunsets not the best things ever?) The Farm Haven location […]
Meet Brittany and Ryan. They are so good looking together, it’s kind of ridiculous. :) We quickly wandered The Plaza while trying to beat the rain. It was sticky, hot, humid… from what I hear, it was so very Kansas. And it. was. so worth it. I’m kind of losing it over how much I loved photographing […]
Meet Jill and Craig. They are super adorable. I mean, ridiculously so. :) We shot these photos on a dreary day that followed two or three insanely stormy days. The days leading up to it were full of maybe-we-should-cancels, but Jill was determined and wasn’t going to let a few rainclouds stand in her way. This is when […]
