Cincinnati Proposal and Engagement Photographer:: Jake and Jennifer’s Downtown Cincinnati Riverfront Proposal on Reds Opening Day (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).

  • Today, while we shot birthday photos for this girl (I can’t believe she’ll be two in a few weeks 😱😭), we talked about aunt Sallie and how today is her birthday. The irony that we’re planning a birthday while mourning a birthday is not lost on me. But I know that Sallie would love that we’re celebrating her through celebrating our girl. 🎈 #ohmywinnie

  • wow! a huge thanks to @todayswomannow for sharing this story!! 🎉❤️ (local friends, it’s in their most recent issue 👏🏻)
.
we made an unpopular decision a few months ago by getting rid of almost all of our social media and keeping Winnie as far away from it as we can. and it’s been so rewarding. 🙌🏻 Winnie still gets shown off from time to time, but keeping our real lives with her off of this app (and Facebook, Twitter, etc) is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents.

“When it comes to our kids, we are in the midst of a ‘large uncontrolled experiment’.” Technology (ie, smartphones and social media) is the only thing that we throw blindly at our kids without knowing how it will impact their futures. I’m not saying our choice is the right choice for everyone, but I am saying to do your research. #ohmywinnie

  • I am SO READY for fall weather. 🍁 Summer is great, I don't mind it, whatever. But I've been talking about fall more and more recently, and OHMYGOSH CAN IT GET HERE ALREADY. 😫
.
Fall mini sessions will take place on 10/6 and 10/27. Both will be here in Southern Indiana. One weekend might have the option for Christmas themed props, I haven't decided on that part yet (if this is something you would want, comment and let me know which weekend would be better for you). 🎄 If these two dates don't work, don't fret... I almost always open up a third weekend for them once I get the first two booked. 🙌🏻

  • I have a lot of bad days. I don’t always share them here - maybe I should. or maybe it’s good that I don’t because who wants to hear me whine, am I right? 🤨 it’s just that some days (Sundays) are especially difficult when Winnie doesn’t see Shane even once all day. and you know she asks about him aaaall day. 😩  but thanks to my sweet friends who checked in on me after my post yesterday. you guys are the best and really I’m fine. 🖤 now, if Monday could just get on with it because, ugh, mooonnndddaaayyy. 😒😖 #ohmywinnie

  • no clever caption or insightful thoughts about this photo. 🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s just a photo that makes me happy, and I need a little of that right now because sometimes Sundays are hard. 😞
