/02 ADAIR FAMILY
This is Madison. She's the superhero, powerhouse, manager of all things Adair! She's your point person every step of the way. Always going above and beyond, she holds each couple's hand through the planning process. Her priority is for each couple to have as smooth of an experience as possible. Through the stress of wedding planning, she's your girl. Everyone needs a Madison in their life! Madison is also a wife, mother of two young kids, and was born and raised in Cincy.
This is Amanda. She's been with Adair since 2018, and one thing you'll find is that no matter where you are with her, you’ll have a blast. She's incredibly artistic, and a constant learner. Professionally, Amanda has been a bank manager and a tech store manager, and has travelled as a guest of Nikon to NYC for new product demos and training. Amanda also has a husband and two young kids, and is passionate about photographing couples. On a wedding day, she will observe everything, and frame it beautifully in her lens. Maybe one of the best of all her talents, she has a way of helping you feel like you’re not being photographed. You’ll see candid photos she took, and think “when was that?!”
This is Kenyatta. She's been with Adair for two years. She holds her B.S. in Marketing from UC and worked in corporate accounting for five years. She discovered her passion for photographing stories in 2016, and it didn't take long until she decided to say goodbye to the 9-5 to pursue it. Her favorite people in the world are her husband and three boys. Kenyatta is a master of helping couples bring their unique vision to life. This is highlighted by the fact that she's an amazing listener, which makes her a dynamic storyteller. Somehow, she brings her couple's stories and visions into photos. As soon as you meet Kenyatta, you'll feel like you've been friends for years.
This is Bethany. She's been with Adair since the beginning. She and her husband have an adorable little girl, and are living their best life in the city. If extra attention to minute little details about your day is important to you...and beautiful photos of your details, (think: flowers, shoes, stationery, tables, etc), and someone who will keep your day running smoothly, she's your lady. Bethany is also a master of shaping light to be impeccably flattering!
This is Katie. She's a videographer, a ruthless boxer, and a mom of two. She's probably one of the coolest people you'll meet. Getting to know her and her stories, you'll love her even more!
The best thing about having a videographer who's already a part of your photography team is knowing that our workflows will always be synced up (and we're already best friends, so that helps!) which makes for a better experience for you.
See some of her recent videos here.
This is Rachel. From the start, she had a few specific objectives:
1. Free up the creative energy of photographers. Removing the "back end" work of running a business, so that they can invest in couples and create art.
2. Documenting weddings in a true-to-life manner. So that as years go by, couples can go back to their photographs, and be transported clearly to the way they felt on that day.
Rachel and her husband, two kids, and quirky dog love going for trips in their camper. Rachel takes photo clients up to two years in advance.
CHOOSING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
During your phone call, Madison will get to know your personalities, venue, preferences, and style. You will pick your photographer, and if they are available, then you will be paired with that photographer once you're booked. We can set up a call with your photographer either before or after booking, depending on your preference.
a heart for couples & an eye for genuine moments
It's 2021, there are a ton of people who can take gorgeous photos. What makes our team different? The group has grown slowly through the years, and when selecting women to join the team, many factors were considered. Most important was how they care for people.
It's relatively easy to sense when someone has a genuine heart and amazing personality, but mixing that with technical know-how and a similar style can be difficult to find. Each photographer has many years of experience, and is trained by Rachel in the Adair style and techniques, specifically in lighting.
After your wedding, your photos are edited in the same signature style: crisp, clean, vibrant, and true-to-life.
