Kristen and Bobby contacted me a few months ago about an e-session. Bobby was be sent from San Angelo, TX to New Jersey and a new Air Force base. They were stopping in Michigan for a quick visit with their families and wanted to do an engagement session in a city they still have a great connnection with, Detroit. Bobby and Kristen are big Red Wings fans and wanted a few pictures at the Joe, as well as some other Detroit highlights. Kristen and Bobby are getting married in September in Grand Haven. Best wishes and enjoy New Jersey.
Amanda and Chris wanted to do a spring e-session before their mid-April wedding in the Florida Keys. We had tried to do this session about three previous days, but weather always got in the way. Chris and Amanda like spending time in Detroit on motorcycle rides, so we decided it would be a good place to start. They also are Red Wings fans, so Joe Louis needed to be a background also. The warehouse district near the Ren Cen was where we had the most fun with their shots. The bike just popped from the red brick buildings and walls. We finally finished near Chene Park on the waterfront. Best of luck with your new lives and enjoy your wedding day in Florida.
Katie and Eric’s wedding isn’t for a year yet, but they wanted to get some engagement photos this fall. We decided on Belle Isle and, to keep Eric fired up about the whole day, Joe Louis Arena also. Belle Isle is truly Detroit’s hidden gem, and I hope with the Grand Prix coming back there, they will continue to improve the condition of the island and facilities. We were able to get some fun shots at the Casino building on the island. Also we utilized the wide open spaces on the island for some backgrounds. At Joe Louis, we have some classic shots of the front entrance and then headed around to the river side for some beautiful late afternoon shots on the Riverwalk. I look forward to Katie and Eric’s big day in October 2012.
Fadia and JP, another of my 2011 couples that have been trying to get their e-session in before their wedding. Our lovely Michigan weather has changed our plans multiple times. JP, is an owner of a hockey rink and wanted to make sure we had some Red Wings representation in their pictures. We started out on Belle Isle in Detroit with blustry winds that must have made the wind chill below freezing. We then moved on to Joe Louis Arena for JP’s shots and then some street scenes not from from JLA. I can’t wait until their wedding. Besides being a truly handsome couple, they are a lot of fun. June 18th isn’t far off…hopefully it will be warmer.
