For Kenny + Anna’s engagement session, we decided to recreate the night they got engaged. This sweet couple loves living in Over-The-Rhine in downtown Cincinnati. It is obvious that city life suits them!
On a hot June night in 2016, Kenny treated Anna to their two favorite Cincinnati staples for her birthday. First, a drink at Liberty’s Bar & Bottle. Then, a dinner reservation at The Rookwood in Mount Adams. Liberty’s Bar & Bottle is the cutest little bar that can be seen from Kenny’s apartment. They often times come here for after work drinks to unwind, relax, and catch up on each other’s day. The Rookwood is a (now closed) restaurant with an amazing atmosphere, the most delicious menu, and a view of the city that can’t be beat.
Kenny timed it just right so that after their drink at Liberty’s Bar & Bottle, they were early for the reservation at The Rookwood.
Anna knew this was no ordinary dinner when Kenny began talking about how much he adored their life together. Before she knew it, he was on one knee, asking her to be his wife with the custom-made sapphire ring that he designed.
I loved that we were able to incorporate those exact places into their engagement session. I always say it, but it’s true: the best engagement locations are the ones that are special to you. We can find beauty anywhere, but you can’t find a story anywhere! Anna and Kenny took that to heart when deciding where we would shoot their engagement session, and it definitely paid off!
A special thanks to Liberty’s Bar & Bottle for letting us shoot in your gorgeous space! It was perfect!
