Downtown Detroit Engagement Session

Wright and Co. and Parker’s Alley

Yesterday I got to meet up with my wedding clients for August 2020 for their Downtown Detroit Engagement Session. Stephanie and Matt are having their big day at The Sweetest Heart of Mary in Detroit, and Andiamo’s in Warren for their reception!

We picked February 8th, and the weather was perfect! Overcast, not too cold, and the locations were stunning. And as always Detroit is a breeding ground for creativity.


They knew just where they wanted to do their photos, and I couldn’t wait to meet up with them to get their Downtown Detroit engagement session done! We started out where Wright & Co. graciously allowed us to use their stunning restaurant with the incredible Downtown Detroit, backdrop.

AND, we did some quick photos inside Wright and Co. as well! It was super cool to go back, and relive a little bit of what we had happened just a few months prior!

Cocktails always enhance the engagement session 😉

With a few cocktails, we got to work! The lighting was fantastic, and these two were just the most in love. Honestly, I don’t think it’s possible to take a bad photo of them either.

They’re adorable and totally comfortable with being silly and a lil’ bit of PDA. 😉 Afterall, this is what these sessions are all about! They were totally THEM, the whole time. And it shows!

And after wrapping up at Detroit’s’ Wright and Co., they did a quick outfit change… We took a few more photos and headed out to Parker’s Alley! Now in the #1 spot for my favorite places to shoot. (I got engaged in that same spot just a little over a month ago!)

But, Of COURSE, I had to pull out the “pretend you’re in a three-legged race”… I always tell my couples this is the hardest thing I’ll have you do the whole shoot, let’s see how well you two work together. These Downtown Detroit engagement photo results are priceless. Here’s a good spot to see more of my engagement sessions around Michigan, and even Colorado!

And their problem-solving skills are on point would you just look at that knee connection! Haha!! Way to go Stepanie and Matt on that one! 😉

Annnnnd… their entire session had me squealing!! I could NOT wait to get these images on my computer. I knew this session was fire, and damn.. Detroit, Matt and Stephanie… all I can say is “YASSSS!”

Then the last shot we got was one of my favorites. The hair blowing, in the city breeze on the iconic street in Downtown Detroit on, Woodward Ave. Plus while kissing your fiance?! Truly, what better moment where your new beginnings are documented for their Downtown Detroit engagement session. What better time, for the feeling that brings. But, needless to say, I am so incredibly excited for Matt and Stephanies’ big day!!

If you just made it all the way to the end of this, and are still looking for someone who can make you laugh, joke with you, and take some incredible photos downtown Detroit, or anywhere in Michigan… Holla at ya girl!

Dionne and chris 

"I literally had the most fun with her. She helped me get through my day, was incredibly helpful, incredibly professional and just incredibly incredible. I received a preview of my photos less than 24 hours after my event. She really made our big day even better."

"I just wanted to shout from the rooftops how much of an awesome engagement and wedding photographer Magan is!"

Jamie and lewis

Magan was incredibly flexible with our teeny tiny wedding. She captured every moment, made us genuinely laugh, and we were so comfortable with her every second she was there. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!


"We’re absolutely in love with our pictures, I couldn’t ask anything more."

Goutham + Jessica

It’s my first time before an actual camera and I was nervous but She made the entire session so much fun and I barely felt like I was posing. It’s crazy how she could edit all of our pictures so fast and nail each and every edit! Honestly 10/10 for experience, quality, customer care, delivery!
Highly recommended her to capture your special days/moments.

"Magan is extremely talented, funny and friendly."
