Anthony and Cassie – Springtime on Belle Isle and Downtown Detroit

When we chose late April, we figured we would have a nice springtime warm day.  Well, we’ll differ to Cassie on her interpretation on the temperature on Sunday.  We had a beautiful sunny day for a late afternoon at Belle Isle and downtown Detroit.  The Casino at Belle Isle and the pond behind the Casino started out as our background and then we moved by the river where we were able to play with light and shadows.  We then drove down to the Campus Martius Park and surrounding areas to finish up our fun afternoon.  We are looking forward to seeing Anthony and Cassie in about one month for their wedding day.


Teegan and Dan – Downtown Detroit Engagement Session

Teegan and Dan made the trek to Detroit for the holiday this weekend.  We ended up with a perfect spring day in the “D”.  I had a great time getting to know Teegan and Dan while spending times in the streets of Detroit, Hart Plaza, the Griswold Building and Campus Martius Park.  The couple has a really fun wedding planned in September that I look forward to sharing with them.  Stay tuned.

Jessie & Dominic – Detroit Engagement Session

IMG_8577Although a bit cold, we were able to get some fun shots of Jessie and Dom in the downtown Detroit area.  Campus Martius, Hart Plaza and Woodward Avenue provided much of our backdrop…with a quick trip to St. Andrews Hall for some shots with The Avengers graffiti wall.  I look forward to the warm July day of Jess’ and Dom’s wedding…enjoy.

Claudia and Tony – Detroit Engagement Session

Claudia and Tony chose downtown Detroit as their e-session background. We had a great time on a Sunday afternoon, wandering the streets of Detroit, the night before the Tigers came home for the Divisional Championship Series.

We explored the Comerica Park and Foxtown area. Then we headed down to Campus Martius Park where it became a wind tunnel, so we headed inside the Compuware Building where we got our cool silhouette shot. Then it was out to Belle Isle for a request by Tony and a skyline photo.

I’m looking forward to Claudia and Tony’s winter wedding on Jan. 28, 2012

Carolyn and Elra – Detroit Engagement Session

Carolyn and Elra told me they didn’t want to have posed, looking at the camera, engagement photos. The one thing I learned quickly about Carolyn and Elra is that they like to have fun. That means I can be a little more creative and look for some off the wall or kind of edgy backgrounds. I don’t know we got too edgy, but we had a lot of fun. A stop at the Red Grape Lounge on Woodward Ave. gave us a great background/venue for some fun “bar” shots. We found some fun alleys, great worn brick walls and a parking structure. Ask Elra (not Carolyn) about the baseball glove story. Can’t wait until their Thanksgiving weekend wedding.

Megan and Keith and Regan too…Detroit Engagement Session

Megan contacted me a few days prior to our Monday session and told me how excited she was about doing their engagement session pictures. I love getting e-mails like that because I know we are going to have fun and end up with some cool pictures. We started at Grosse Pointe War Memorial with some nice garden shots. Regan wanted to be center of attention, and we let her be several times. Then we headed down to downtown Detroit for some shots at Campus Martius Park, where Keith proposed to Megan, and then some nice shots of the surrounding areas and skyline. So, we had a really beautiful evening and I look forward to their wedding on Sept. 2nd…I’m sure we’re going to have a great time.
