Cincinnati Proposal Photographer | Jake and Jennifer’s Downtown Cincinnati, Reds Opening Day Proposal Photography (pt. 1)

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 be is THE SWEETEST! This couple made my day and made my job a snap. Meagan White Photo - Mathews Proposal 001 Meagan White Photo - Mathews Proposal 002He had dreams of popping the big question on Opening Day in downtown Cincinnati. I LOVED that idea, and we quickly got to work making plans. I suggested he wear a color that wasn’t red, black, or white, so that I could more easily spot him among the masses that turn out for this local holiday. Except… there were NO MASSES! Haha! There were just these two lovebirds, as well as a few early-morning drinkers who got to witness this sweet moment from a distance (and they made for a great audience, by the way).

  • I got a handful of messages after my last post, so I just want to clarify a few things...
.

1. value your work - if you don’t value what you do, you can’t expect others to value it (/pay you for it)

2. BUT don’t be fearful of giving your time and talents - there are opportunities where giving of yourself and what you do is a beautiful gift to not only your subject, but also yourself

3. protect yourself and your business by charging what you deserve in order to make room for #2

4. for photographers - if you don’t love it, stop shooting it.... stop trying to do it all. when I go to the dentist, I don’t expect to have an eye exam

5. know why - I know why I charge what I charge (because I know what my expenses are, what I want my profit to be, etc), and that makes it easy to be confident in my pricing

keep your thoughts/questions coming - I’ve been doing this for over 10 years, and I’ve gone though the seasons of charging and not charging and being confident and being unsure... and if all of this experience adds up to the opportunity to get to encourage and support someone else, then it was worth it. 👏🏻

  • from the day we said goodbye to our IN house 🔑 | 01•02•2018

this has nothing to do with this photo, but I’m ordering a computer today 💸 and I feel like this is a a great time to remind people of why photographers (and all small business owners) charge what they do ... (because “favors for friends” don’t pay for hard drives and ram 💻) if you want to hear me on my soapbox, ask me to “just shoot a couple quick ones” for you sometime 😬😣📸

  • Thoughts on Instagram....
I did the whole “post every day” thing, and I can assuredly say that it didn’t help. And then I stopped posting for a more than a month, which I’m sure also didn’t help. 😬🤷🏼‍♀️
.
So now that I’m sort of “back”, could you like/comment/maybe both if you’re seeing this? I haven’t been around enough, so my audience is hugely limited and any interaction will help 👏🏻😬
.
thankkkksss you’re the best 🖤

  • One of the most meaningful gifts you can give to new parents is the gift of being able to revisit their baby’s first hours again and again 🖤 fresh 48 sessions are a perfect and beautiful way to do this. ✨ I’m so ready to get back at it, and I can’t think of a better way than with all the sweet, new babies.
