There are places that no matter how many times I visit, it never feels like I photograph the same place twice…and Cincinnati is one of those places! Sung + Annie chose to have their Cincinnati wedding at Drees Pavilion, which has one of the best views of the Cincinnati skyline in the entire city — and it’s actually technically on the Kentucky side of the river! But regardless of which side of the Ohio River they were married on, Sung + Annie had a gorgeous wedding, and it was a blast to get to spend the day with them, their family, and friends!

Arriving as Annie was preparing for the first look, we set to work straight away, capturing every moment as it came throughout the day. It was a gorgeous day, so Sung + Annie chose to have their first look outside, overlooking the Cincinnati skyline with a beautiful blue sky. It was a blast getting to capture them together before the ceremony, and get to see a little bit of their personalities together before the big moments occurred later in the day. And, after they were tucked away for the ceremony, it was a blast capturing their friends and family, particularly their ridiculously adorable nephews! Everyone who attended was a joy, and it was fun to see everyone come together to celebrate Sung + Annie.

And, if the moments during the ceremony weren’t awesome enough, if you’ve never experienced the band that is The Naked Karate Girls, you are truly missing out. These guys hit the stage for the reception and the party was ON! They are easily one of the best bands I’ve ever heard at a wedding, and if you are looking for a wedding band, check them out! The hilarious shenanigans they encouraged, the fantastic music, and the fun everyone had through the night was an evening to remember.

Congratulations, Sung + Annie, and thank you for allowing Josh and I to be a part of your day and capture your moments for you! It was an honor to be there for your day. And, as always, a huge thank you to Josh Farr for second shooting this wedding with me!

 Sung and Annie’s Drees Pavilion wedding (in Kentucky) was perfect in every way! Even the weather knocked it out of the park with the most beautiful blue sky and sunshine all day long (although it brought the heat with insanely high temperatures outside). These two braved the scorching sun to get some gorgeous outdoor bride and groom portraits with Megan Allen (owner of Studio 22 Photography) on their wedding day.

 Those little acts of love from a mom to a daughter are some of the most important moments captured on a wedding day. When getting ready Annie’s mom made sure her dress was absolutely perfect, down to the littlest thread. Megan Allen was there to document this moment and many more of the bridal party and family on the morning of Annie and Sung’s Cincinnati wedding.

 A wedding is a day that is made up of millions of tiny details (right down the the socks on your groom’s feet). This is why Studio 22 Photography makes sure to have an eye out for all the microscopic details that create your magical day. Sung and Annie had a perfect day at Drees Pavillion in Kentucky.

 One of the fun parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to see all the different personalities of the couple’s come out in their wedding style. These insanely beautiful florals, done by Tulip Tree Wedding Florals, showcased Sung and Annies classy and fun Cincinnati wedding to perfection.

 There are infinite images of the bride and groom on their wedding day, however one thing that Megan Allen wants to be sure of is that you have photographs of the emotions and reactions of your family and friends. This image of Annie’s mom seeing her for the first time after getting ready for her Cincinnati wedding, is exactly why this is a priority of Studio 22 Photography.

 Weddings bring together friends and family, young and old, to celebrate and appreciate love, commitment, and relationships. This cross generation image taken at Drees Pavilion in Kentucky shows why Studio 22 Photography focuses a lot of energy on capturing the small moments with your friends and family for you (and them) to cherish for years to come.

 Weddings are filled with many things; emotions, laughter, love, relationships, and if kids are involved a little make-believe. All of these things transcend language, which was evident as Sung’s family did not speak any english.

 Cincinnati is filled with amazing local outdoor spots to explore and create gorgeous wedding portraits of the bride and groom. From Ault Park and Eden Park to Krohn Conservatory, there is no shortage of landscapes to choose from. This stunning couple braved the mother of all heat waves for this photoshoot for their wedding with Studio 22 Photography.

 The look in a groom’s eyes when he sees his bride walk down the aisle is something that she never wants to forget. Megan at Studio 22 Photography makes sure to capture all the key moments of your wedding ceremony for you, and the ones you didn’t expect as well. This beautiful moment at Drees Pavilion shows how important these shots truly are.

 Drees Pavilion in Kentucky has one of the the best views of the Cincinnati skyline out there. This is a perfect spot to get married and to be able to capture images that mean something as they pay homage to your city.

 Sung and Annie had an amazing reception at Drees Pavilion. When couple’s choose vendors that aren’t afraid of looking ridiculous in order to get the guests to have a good time, Megan Allen knows that it will be an epic reception. Naked Karate Girls lived up to the hype and had everyone laughing and dancing late into the night.

 Naked Karate Girls wedding band from Cincinnati came ready to party (and brought all the props necessary). They not only brought down the house, but the guests of all ages enjoyed every second and had a night to remember. Megan of Studio 22 Photography was there capturing all the fun and action so that generations to come can relive this wild reception.

 Studio 22 Photography always has a blast when kids are invited to weddings because you never know what they will do. This little boy at Sung and Annie’s wedding at Drees Pavilion was the leader of the pack all night long.

 When you have half of the guest list who are international, you must show your National pride somehow. Naked Karate Girls was full of wardrobe changes and epic surprises all night long. They gave Sung and Annie a reception for the books at Drees PAvilion.

 Regardless of age, gender, or nationality weddings bring everyone together (and bring out the wild side in us all). Megan Allen’s (owner of Studio 22 Photography) favorite part of a wedding day is the reception as that is where people finally let loose and celebrate! She loves capturing the unexpected moments that come when everyone is allowed to let their guard down and have fun (like this moment at Sung and Annie’s reception at Drees Pavilion in Kentucky with Naked Karate Girls wedding band).

 What is a reception without unlimited sombraros? Annie and Sung’s guests had so much fun dressing up and getting down at their Drees Pavilion reception. Naked Karate Girls knew how to keep the party going all night long!

 When it comes to formal bride and groom portraits, Megan Allen of Studio 22 Photography enjoys looking for new ways to push limits and expectations. Through continuous training and practicing, Megan has gathered a bag of tricks and techniques taht will make your wedding photographs stand out among the rest. This nighttime silhouette of Annie and Sung in Cincinnati is backlit with MagMod gels to create a colourfully dynamic image contrasting the bokeh balls in the foreground.

 Drees Pavilion has the best view of the Cincinnati skyline around. As such, there was not a doubt in Megan Allen’s mind that she needed to find a way to highlight this for Annie and Sung’s wedding. This beautiful night portrait is yet another way Studio 22 brought in multiple elements to create a stunning and meaningful image for her couple.
