Cincinnati Proposal Photographer | Mike and Julie, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport Proposal Photography (pt. 1)

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!

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

  • 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.
