Claire + Alex's Cincinnati Engagement Session @ Ault Park
Claire and Alex found me through one of my previous couples, Victoria and Seth, and it makes me so happy when my clients send their friends my way. (Check out Victoria + Seth’s wedding at this link.) It’s also fun to get to travel to different cities for my couples! Sometimes I feel that I’ve photographed in the same spots in Columbus so many times that I love seeing what other cities have to offer.
We took the majority of their photos at a park in Cincinnati called Ault Park (photo friends: 10/10 recommend). Ault park is, also, where Alex proposed to Claire so it made the location even more special. The tricky part about parks like this, however, is that it’s public… obviously. There were TONS of people there taking prom photos, but Claire and Alex had the best attitudes about it and we made it work! There was also a hacky sack tournament going on (hahaha) that I got to watch while they were changing. LOL!! If you follow me on instagram, you know.
We finished their session at Mad Tree Brewing Co, where Claire and Alex spend a lot of time, and it had the most fun vibe. They brought along their dog to get some family photos and George was making friends, since Mad tree is dog friendly!! When we were done with their photos they asked me to stay and have pizza with them and they gave me the sweetest card with a Starbucks gift card… How did I get the most amazing clients?! In all seriousness though, this couple is the bomb. They love each other so much and it’s obvious that they’re just the best friends. The whole time they were having their own little comments and cracking up and it made for the cutest photos. I’m still curious what Alex was whispering to her the whole time lolol! Thanks for being so fun you two.
