Riverside Drive in Covington, KY is one of our most requested photo locations! With it’s historic homes, cobblestone streets, and killer city views, George Rogers Clark Park has a lot of charm and character going for it. But in Abby and Nate’s case, this area of town is even more special. Nate actually proposed to Abby here with views of the Roebling Bridge behind them. What a perfect place to capture this season of engagement – right where she said “YES!” To top it all off, they had unseasonably warm weather for the end of November and the most beautiful cloudy day to capture the Cincinnati skyline.
Abby and Nate are high school sweethearts. They both went to college together at the University of Cincinnati, and now they are planning their wedding in the city where they met and fell in love! These two are super laid back and fun, and they were up for anything I threw at them during their session. We made friends with a guy whose yard had the last bit of gorgeous fall color and enjoyed admiring everyone’s beautiful holiday decor as we explored historic Covington together. And they couldn’t even look at each other without smiling or bursting into laughter!
Nate and Abby, I had so much fun getting to laugh with you two and see the love that you share. You two are so sweet together! We can’t wait to celebrate with you two at The Cincinnati Club in September!
Alms Park is always beautiful, but on a sunny day like this one? It’s absolute perfection. Olivia and Michael lucked out with an absolutely gorgeous November day for engagement pictures! And even though everyone else in Cincinnati also wanted to be out at Alms Park to enjoy it, we managed to avoid the crowds to capture some absolutely beautiful memories of this season of engagement for them.
These two are the absolute SWEETEST together. They were a little nervous at the start of their session (isn’t everyone?!), but you’d never know it by how natural they are together! They were up for anything – even dancing in the park. And does Olivia not have the BEST smile you’ve ever seen?
These two just recently bought a house, and Michael decided to ask her to marry him there. I love that idea that she said yes right where they plan to build their lives together. The start of their forever. It’s so good to remember in these crazy times that simple isn’t bad. Sometimes the simplest things are the most perfect.
Olivia and Michael, you two are so well matched. You clearly have so much fun together, and it is impossible not to love being around you! You have the most infectious laughter, and you absolutely CRUSHED your engagement session. We can’t wait to celebrate with you two this summer! Congratulations!

We had never visited Glenwood Gardens before, but it’s just down the road from David’s childhood home so we had to check it out! It was so perfect to be able to capture engagement pictures for these two in the same spot they have taken countless walks together over the years. Also, it was SUPER convenient for Lanaya to be able to run back over there when we realized her second outfit was still at David’s parents’ house mid-session. 😉
In all seriousness, these two college sweethearts are absolutely perfect together. They are big Skyline Chili lovers (Chris was totally feeling the Skyline connection with these two), so we decided to start their session with a fun little Skyline date! When David suggested they do the “Lady and the Tramp” with one of the noodles… you guys, I love them. It was so much fun to do something totally different and include something so completely Cincinnati in their engagement pictures. Also, I’m super jealous of how well Lanaya can pull off this adorable hat!
Lanaya and David, I had so much fun exploring Glenwood Gardens with you! (Still can’t get over that killer little patch of rocks we found with your dress flowing in the wind!) You guys were up for anything, and it made this session so much fun! I know your Manor House wedding will be GORGEOUS this spring, but your marriage is going to be even more beautiful. You compliment each other so perfectly, and it’s immediately obvious how comfortable you are together. We could not be more excited for you two!

The Lytle Park Hotel provides the perfect combination of chic rooftop bar fun and luxe details, so it was no surprise when Gabrielle and Bryan told me this place “feels like us”. Just like this gorgeous hotel, these two are classy but don’t take themselves too seriously.
Bryan and Gabrielle met when they were just ten years old on the Mason swim team, and by the time they were sophomores in high school they were officially an item. Even though when they were high school sweethearts Gabrielle said she would marry him one day, she never dreamed she would be right! These two are currently living in the Windy City and planning their summer 2021 wedding at The Transept from afar, so it was so much fun to have them back in their hometown for engagement pictures! Between COVID and Chicago, we hadn’t gotten to meet them in person yet, but when I met them for their session, I couldn’t help but immediately fall in love with them.
Gabrielle and Bryan are troopers and were game for everything from kissing in the middle of the streets of downtown Cincinnati to spinning each other around in P&G Gardens. It’s obvious how long they have been loving each other after spending just a few minutes watching how comfortable they are in one another’s arms. I don’t think Gabrielle stopped smiling for a single minute of their whole session, and Bryan didn’t complain once when I kept finding new spots to “just take one more picture” when they were supposed to be done. 😉 Gabrielle and Bryan, we are SO excited for you two and cannot wait to capture the next chapter of your love story this summer!
