I grew up in an Air Force family and moved every few years. Fairytales and fantasy novels were my escape.
I never really grew out of that stage of my life. From Disney princesses to Grimm's Fairytales and even Lord of the Rings, my life and dreams were influenced by fantasy.
I believe in true love and hope in the darkest of times. As a creative, I looked for ways to tell the same sort of stories.
I think it's why I'm so drawn to photography, because I
can tell true stories of beauty, love, and hope.
Aside from being a photographer, I am a novelist,
guitar player and singer, wife, mommy, and possibly a shapeshifter. If you don't believe me, ask my husband what my natural hair color is.
I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ with my two younger
brothers. When I wasn't at school or taking care of my brothers, my days were spent at the bowling alley where my mom worked, swimming, or riding my bike.
My favorite part of school was JROTC and I had plans to join the Air Force as an officer, but when my girlfriend moved across the country, I decided I wanted to be with her more than be in the military.
That decision changed the entire course of my life for the better. Now, I'm a husband, father, youth pastor and education director at my church, a multi-store manger for Office Depot, and working on my masters in counseling.
We are Cynthia and Rich Davis, the husband wife duo behind Cyn Davis Photography. We met in Phoenix, AZ when we were barely teenagers and we became quick friends, which blossomed into love as we got older and grew closer. Our love story took us through a cross-country move, a long-distance relationship, small apartments, working opposite shifts, infertility, the death of a parent, and many more hardships. But through every worst time, we grew stronger, fell deeper in love, and found the best of times. We believe communication, sacrifice, stubborn devotion, and laughter are key to keeping the romance burning.
We are suckers for a great love story, because we have a great love story.
We are Steubenville, OH based wedding photographers. Get to know us better, let's meet at Leonardo's for coffee, or subscribe to my blog and follow along as I retell our love story.
How We Work
Cyn Davis Photography specializes in vibrant and romantic hybrid-photojournalism. What is hybrid-photojournalism? We use that term to explain that throughout most of the day, we rely on natural light to document scenes as they naturally are, however there are situations in which more light is necessary to produce high quality images. In these situations, we use flash and modifiers to better control the light.
In addition, while we are often flies on the wall capturing candid moments, there are times in which we act as a personal assistant or friend to ensure that our clients' day goes as smoothly as possible. That might mean giving a reassuring word when you get nervous, grabbing snacks when you get hungry, or helping with sewing buttons or pinning boutonnieres.
Our purpose and mission statement is to create vibrant stories of love. We find that beauty is found in genuine emotion and genuine moments, so providing you with an excellent client experience is all a part of the process.
