Cincinnati Proposal Photographer | Andrew and Melanie’s Purple People Bridge Proposal

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 turned into buckets of snow within hours and all of those imagined people were warmly tucked away indoors, leaving the bridge empty and my anonymity harder to come by.(can you see them in the photo above? it’s like a game of “I Spy.”)

I think I could have been dressed in neon and dancing around, and these two still wouldn’t have noticed me. That’s what happens when you’re in love. They only had eyes for each other. These are always some of my favorites… the instant when she sees the girl with the camera. Andrew surprised Melanie with the sweetest gift, along with a beautiful ring. This lock has both the date of their first date, as well as the date of their proposal (which is how she realized what was about to happen as he got down on one knee). Every proposal is followed by a mini-engagement session – it’s a chance to revel in what just happened while having it all documented in photographs.

  • Far and wide, they’ll come to a stop, they’ll stare in awe, in wonder. Dawn and dusk take turns calling, “come and worship.”

If you missed my stories yesterday, I’m taking limited sessions for October-November (including for Southern Indiana). Can’t wait to get back to it. 📸
  • I’m going to take a break from shooting/sharing. I want to give space and have time to honor this family and this story. Please keep praying for them. ❤️

(archiving her holiday photos here is the easiest, so I’m making up for not doing it last year 🤷🏻‍♀️😬)

July 4th, 2018 - we spent the morning at an aviation museum, followed by an afternoon with a sick toddler. 🤢Thankfully, my sister took an Uber to get a new car seat (yep, the toddler was *that* sick 😬 - we couldn’t put her back in her current seat and we were 1.5 hrs from home 🙈), and we ended the day with a fireworks show on our street. 💥👏🏻🇺🇸

  • In 100 years, people will remember the tenacity of his love for the people around him, but especially for his girls. 🖤 I’m thankful everyday to be his.
