Lance and Kaitlyn – Bloomfield Hills Michigan Engagement Session

Kaitlyn and Lance wanted a fall beauty engagement session. Although the trees haven’t completely turned, we still had some nice backgrounds. They also wanted to include their two daughters in the photos, which was a bunch of fun too. The Bloomfield Hills Nature Center provided a great background for the afternoon with this happy couple/family. Stay tuned for a early summer 2016 wedding.

Alexa and Dax are Chicago residents, but truly have a passion for Detroit. Their wedding will be in Detroit in 2016 and they came to “the D” for their e-session photos. We stopped at a few of their favorite spots in Detroit to do some photos. They are big fans of the Movement festival, so we had to stop by Hart Plaza for a few shots.

Stay tuned for more beautiful shots from their wedding day in 2016.

Jenny and Robert – Birmingham Quarton Lake Engagement Session

Jenny and Robert are both young physicians and so getting a few minutes with them together was hard. We had a perfect evening in Birmingham, Michigan’s Quarton Lake Park.

It was great hanging out with them for an hour or so and learning a little more about them and their upcoming July wedding. Enjoy!

Brandon and Kial – Engagement Session – Belle Isle Detroit

Trying to find a perfect day to photograph Brandon and Kial this winter hasn’t been the easiest. Snowstorms, cold and work schedules have all come into play. We finally picked a nice sunny day to meet up.

Our first stop was the Detroit Public Library. What a fantastic old structure that most people probably don’t even know about. After wandering the halls of the library, we headed out to Belle Isle for some outdoor fun.

Brandon and Kial are having their wedding reception at the Casino on the island, so we wanted to get some shots around the outside of the building. Although the sun was shining beautifully, the temps were down right frigid. I think we lasted about 1/2 hour outside before calling it a day.

I look forward to a beautiful fall setting on the island.

Ed and Ariel – Detroit 20s Style Engagement Session

Ariel contacted me a few weeks ago about doing a Bonnie and Clyde themed engagement session. After a meeting and some collaboration, we came up with a fusion of Bonnie and Clyde and 20s themed. Their outfits combined with some backgrounds that I chose, which lent themselves to that style, gave us a great afternoon. We were even blessed with a “giant snowflake” shower at the end to give us a totally different look. Ed and Ariel have a June wedding planned. Enjoy!

Kristen and Nick – Rochester Michigan Engagement Session

Kristen and Nick were excited for a winter engagement session. We got a wintery day, but not the snow we had hoped for. Downtown Rochester and Paint Creek gave us some beautiful backgrounds for the happy couple. Stay tuned in 2015 for a warmer wedding day.

Jason and Michelle – Belle Isle Engagment Session

Jason and Julie chose mid October and Belle Isle for their engagement session. The trees were amazingly beautiful, the sky could have cooperated a little more, but we still ended up with some wonderful images on a cool fall day. I can’t wait until their spring wedding for some more amazing images.

Brian and Whitney – Birmingham, Michigan and Quarton Lake Engagement Session

Whitney and Brian are such a fun couple and you feel how much they enjoy spending time together. We had a perfect fall evening on the shores of Quarton Lake in Birmingham. Although the fall colors are still a little spotty, you still feel the warmth of the autumn light as the days get shorter. Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for a beautiful wedding in July 2015.

Heather and Scott – Royal Oak Michigan – Engagement Session

Heather and Scott have a beautiful fall wedding planned this year and wanted to get their engagement session in yet this summer.  We had a perfect evening in downtown Royal Oak to wander and grab some fun images around town.  The light was perfect to give us some great shadows and make colors really pop.  Stay tuned for a November wedding with this fun couple.

Melissa and Andrew – Troy High and Rochester Hills Engagement Session

Andrew and Melissa picked a great night for an engagement session in the Troy and Rochester Hills area. We started at Troy High, where although they didn’t date in high school, they both graduated from. We spent some time around the athletic facilities reliving some younger days.

It was then off to the Rochester Hills Municipal Center and some great color and water features. The wild flowers all are in full bloom and it made for some great backdrops. Melissa wanted to test Andrew’s physical abilities before he heads off to flight school on Tues. A May 2015 wedding is in the plans and we look forward to seeing this fun couple again then.
