Stephanie and Matt’s Engagement Session in Downtown Detroit – Parker’s Alley, Wright & Co.
Yesterday I finally got to meet up with my wedding clients for August 2020, at Sweetest Heart of Mary in Detroit, and Andiamo’s in Warren for their reception! They officially booked their wedding with me about two months back and had to wait until the timing was just right for photos. We picked February 8th, and the weather was perfect! Overcast, not too cold, and the locations were stunning.
They knew just where they wanted to do their photos, and I couldn’t wait to meet up with them to get their engagement session done! We started out where Wright & Co. graciously allowed us to use their stunning restaurant with the incredible Downtown Detroit, backdrop. There is nothing that makes me happier then when I’m requested to shoot a session in my FAVORITE city!!!
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 displaying a lil’ bit of PDA. 😉 Afterall, this is what these sessions are all about! They were totally THEM, the whole time. And it shows!
Once we were finished up at 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!)
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. The results are priceless.
But, clearly, their problem-solving skills are on point would you just look at that knee connection! Haha!! So, way to go Stepanie and Matt on that one! 😉
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!”
The last shot we got was one of my favorites. The hair blowing, in the city breeze on the iconic street in Detroit, Woodward Ave. While kissing your fiance. Truly, what better moment where your new beginnings are documented. What better time, for the feeling that brings. So incredibly excited for Matt and Stephanies’ big day!!
