Detroit Engagement Session: Kelly + Donald

Summer is just going by like a blur for us.  I can’t believe it’s already August!  Kelly & Donald’s wedding is this Saturday and I cannot wait to see Kelly in her dress – she is going to be so stunning!  We photographed her and Don a few weeks ago in and around the Wayne State University campus.  A mere million years ago I was a student there studying biology, chemistry, computer science, French, English, graphic design, more biology, photography, and math.  Lots of math.  If you would like a detailed description on how to attend college for 5+ years and end up a credit shy of several minors and no degree, well, shoot me an email because I am expert!  Regardless, it was fun to re-discover the campus and see what’s changed and what has stayed the same.

We also spent some time around the DIA, which is always a source of inspiration for us, both inside and out.  Kelly & Don were total naturals, and made our job very easy.

We are really happy they chose the location they chose.  Midtown is full of possibilities and I think we got a nice amount of variety at this session.  Sometimes when our clients aren’t sure where to have their engagement session, the default choice becomes a park. But it’s worth noting that we can make anything look “park like” if we have a bit of trees or foliage to work with, like below….you’d never know this was taken just feet from Woodward – the main artery running through Detroit.  If you are trying to decide between choosing a park and something different, I encourage you to pick the location that’s going to give you the most variety.  You never know what images you’ll end up liking the best, and we can do “park” anywhere.  Trust me on this – give us a tiny patch of lawn, or some trees in the distance and we can achieve a park look even in the most unlikely of places.  Also, sometimes newer parks don’t have the mature growth to really give you the look you are going for, or we have to worry about working around visitors.
