Say hello to Kelly & Eric – they will be getting married Saturday (tomorrow!) at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, MI. They were gracious enough to come to our side of town for their engagement session just a few short weeks ago. After grabbing some coffee and getting to know each other a bit, we hit the road and explored some Grosse Pointe landmarks.

Isn’t Kelly beautiful?  I don’t know how we did it, but we’ve booked the most gorgeous ladies this year!  Kelly is just a total sweetheart and we’ve enjoyed meeting with her and helping hammer out all the final details for her wedding day.  Eric is really funny and a good sport, and I know we are going to have a LOT of fun tomorrow photographing their wedding.  icon smile Engagement Session:  Kelly & Eric  |  Grosse Pointe Wedding Photographers

We decided to take advantage of one of the two waterfront parks Andy and I have access too.  (Each of the Grosse Pointes – there’s five cities making up the Grosse Pointe area – has their own waterfront park…..except our city….we have TWO!)  Both are great locations for photography – one has a boardwalk overlooking Lake St. Clair, and the other one has a marina & pier – so you can get two unique waterfront backgrounds, and they are located about a 45 second car ride from each other.  If you are stumped trying to think up a location for an engagement session with us, know those two locations are always an option.  icon smile Engagement Session:  Kelly & Eric  |  Grosse Pointe Wedding Photographers

Kelly & Eric decided to have us design a guestbook for them, and we were so happy to oblige.  A guestbook is a terriffic way to showcase your engagement pictures, share them with your friends and family, and collect all your family’s well wishes.  If you are thinking about a guestbook, it’s best to try to schedule your session about 6 weeks in advance of your wedding.  But the nice thing about our coffee table books is that we can get them designed and printed very fast.  In this case, we had a design ready for Kelly & Eric about a week after their session, and her book arrived about 7 days later.  Take a look at their design below, you can use the arrows or pick up the page corners with your mouse to transition to the next page.   We are so happy with how it came out, and I’m excited to see the guests’ reactions at the wedding tomorrow!  icon smile Engagement Session:  Kelly & Eric  |  Grosse Pointe Wedding Photographers
