Top Engagement Photography Locations in Cincinnati Ohio

There are many excellent and unique locations for engagement photography in Cincinnati Ohio.  Below is a list of my favorite Cincinnati engagement locations.  Sessions usually take one hour to complete and are always enjoyable for me as I work hard to make it fun for the bride and groom.  The benefit to the engagement session is that the bride and groom get familiar with my style and personality, and I learn how each couple does in front of the camera.  Seeing how Kevin Lush shoots a Cincinnati engagement session helps put brides and grooms at ease for their wedding day.

  • The Banks and Great American Ball Park
  • Ault Park - Gorgeous staircase, open fields, beautiful views
  • Alms Park - Beautiful views of the Ohio River
  • Smale Riverfront Park - Ohio River, Roebling Suspension Bridge, Large swings, open field
  • Bellevue Park - Great views of downtown Cincinnati, vintage building

My Secrets To Great Wedding Photos

Know your camera and gear

  • Displaying professionalism and gear know-how shows your bride and groom that you know what you are doing. This puts them at ease and reminds them why they chose you to photograph their wedding in the Cincinnati or Dayton area.

Backup all images as you take them

  • Having backups frees the mind from worry and enables you to put that energy toward making better photos

Discuss your time needs with the bride and groom

  • When I get to each wedding I walk through the timeline with the bride and groom. I indicate when I will need them alone for their bride and groom portraits and their one of a kind artistic wedding photos.  This primes the bride and groom to be ready for this short session.

Think about lighting

  • Knowing the weather forecast and the location of the sun at photography times is important.  At a recent Cincinnati winery wedding, I let the bride and groom know that at sunset we'd be heading outside to do beautiful bride and groom shots in front of the grape vines and setting sun.  We were able to capture stunning photos just before the sun went beyond the horizon. Indoor lighting doesn't change much except for getting darker after the reception dinner.  Be prepared!

Go with the flow

  • Sometimes the bride and groom are uncomfortable with certain poses.  When this happens, I laugh it off and have them turn it into a goofy/fun pose that often results in very natural smiles and laughter.  Be ready because not everyone is a natural poser.
