Cincinnati Proposal and Engagement Photographer:: Mike and Julie’s Proposal at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport

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 logistics and I learned that he was basically going to be landing on a plane from Canada, walking into the airport, and dropping to one knee. There wasn’t much time for anything else, and I LOVED that excitement and challenge! (insert hand-clapping emoji here!)Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 001 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 002 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 003Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 004 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 005 His unknowing bride-to-be was scheduled to fly out of the airport and back home to Canada that evening. So, after Mike arrived, his plan was to intercept her before she was through security. After a few anxious minutes of looking for her, she arrived and was completely floored to find her Canadian Prince Charming standing in Northern Kentucky. MAN, I LOVE MY JOB.Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 006 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 008 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 009 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 013 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 014 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 016 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 017 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 018 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 019 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 021 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 022 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 026 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 028 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 029 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 030 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 031 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 032 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 033 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 035 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 036 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 037 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 040 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 041 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 043 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 049Once they were officially engaged, there was still the matter of Julie was supposed to be FLYING TO CANADA.  She hurried to change those plans, since Mike had planned another surprise involving a night on Times Square in NYC – YOU GUYS, I wasn’t kidding when I called him Prince Charming.Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 051 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 052 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 055 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 056 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 057 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 059Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 062 Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 061 Following every proposal I photograph, I give my couple the opportunity for a mini-engagement session.

THANK YOU.
You guys!!
THANK.
YOU.
I can’t even begin to tell you what an honor and privilege this was. And I can’t describe how much fun I had. You two are incredible people – and I literally only met you for 2ish hours! I can’t imagine how much your family and friends love and adore you.

So, thanks again for letting this crazy, loud American be there for this part of your story. I love these photos, and I love knowing you!Meagan White Photo - Mike and Julie 085

  • 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
