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.

  • last week, I mistakenly mentioned that Winnie was getting two teeth at once and it was pretty much the worst thing ever... well, turns out she was getting FOUR. FOUR TEETH. (baby Levi feels my pain here 🤦‍♂️😩) to state the obvious, it’s been a rough week for my girl. 😞 it’s also been a bit of a lesson in priorities for me. I haven’t had much time to sit at my desk, but I’m being reminded of what is my biggest role and most important job - being a momma. ♥️ however, I’m still thankful for naptime and a small break from the madness. 😴😅 using today’s nap to get this collection finished and on my blog - crossing my fingers I will share it with you tomorrow!🤞🏻🎉
  • so many things are happening, some that are hard to understand, but one thing I know for certain is this: there is no love like a momma’s. ♥️
  • we’re working with a serious case of the Mondays over here 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’ve got a no-napping-toddler on my hands who also happens to be cutting her two canine teeth simultaneously, so that’s been fun. 😩🙅🏼‍♀️ thankfully, this family session is on my blog, and it is so much fun, I can almost pretend I’m not losing my mind. 😜😂 leave them some love in the comments because they really are the best ♥️ oh and also tell me HOW TO SURVIVE THIS DAY THANKS. #teethingisayouknowwhat

I’m excited to share this birth story on my blog tomorrow... usually overflowing with words, it’s been odd to be left so speechless by these three beautiful souls. I’m just so thankful.
