University of Cincinnati Engagement and Smale Park Engagement | James + Sarah

It's not too often that someone asks if they can bring a brick to an engagement session but when James and Sarah did and knowing how sweet they are we said, "Of Course!" James and Sarah first met working for the UC Almuni Association (one of my favorite clients!) When they found out that their offices were going to be torn down for the new Linder Center at the University of Cincinnati they saved a brick and keep it as a momento of where they first met. We added it into a few photos at UC and then swapped it out for a record player at Smale Park. We love when our couples bring things a little out of the ordinary and with a lot of meaning to include in their photos. There's no better way to make photos truly yours, no matter the location. James and Sarah love music so a record player was an awesome touch!

Naturally James and Sarah are huge Bearcat and FC Cincinnati fans, so we began their engagement session at UC and ended it with photos at Smale Park and the Roebling Bridge. James is from England and Sarah is from Orlando so we loved getting to document their love of Cincinnati and the part of their life that is here. 

James and Sarah you're the sweetest couple we know and we had a ton of fun taking your photos. Thanks for choosing one of my favorite places to shoot, UC and for being so willing to get even closer for the right shot :) 

Noah

When we take photos we're look to create a memory and document a part of your life. That’s why we love doing in-home photo sessions! It's the perfect vignette to show off your personality and a great memory when you renovate or move. When Rachel asked if we could do lifestyle newborn photos in their first home together I was so excited  

I met Rachel in college and she is the sweetest. When she called and asked if we would take photos of her sweet little babe Noah, I was thrilled. Watching Rachel and John watch Noah was like seeing what love looks like. Rachel soothed little Noah while John made faces to make him smile. 

Rachel and John, Noah is so lucky to have such wonderful parents and you’re so lucky to have such a sweet little guy. We are so honored to be invited into your home to document a little part of Noah’s first week!  

Newport Aquarium Wedding | Madison & Josh

From the moment we met Madison and Josh to the moment we left their wedding, all that we felt was love and happiness. Madison smiled and laughed the entire time, Josh just glowed with love for his bride. We loved getting to photograph their wedding at the stunning, Mother of God Catholic Church in Covington. It was a wedding day filled with joy and laughter - at one point a bridesmaid asked "are you going to ask us to laugh so we can get a cute photo," all I could say was I haven't taken a single photo that everyone wasn't laughing (and looking cute!) At their reception at the Newport Aquarium, Madison wasn't afraid to explore Stingray Bay or Cross the Shark tunnel in her wedding dress. There's a life of love and adventure and happiness ahead of you, Josh and Madi, and we're so happy that we got to document the (official) very first day of it!
