Meghan and Mike’s engagement session might be one of my new favorites (I know, I say that for every session… but if you scroll through these gorgeous images, you’ll see why!) We started outside of the famous Shinola Hotel, where Mike proposed to Meghan! Right next to the hotel, in Parker’s Alley, there was a group of young people cheering us on when we first started our session. It was fun to have a “hype squad” and I’d say it was well-deserved — Meghan and Mike were natural PROS at modeling!
I absolutely love the second outfit Meghan and Mike chose for their city photos: a gorgeous dress for her, a sports coat for him… so classy. We walked around the city and Mike pointed out a building his great-great grandfather built. Of course we had to take a few photos in front of it, and they are some of my favorites from their session! It’s so cool that we were able to incorporate that family history into their photos.
After our walk through the Belt, we headed over to Belle Isle. It was a little hard to navigate the island since they were setting up for the Grand Prix (we had to walk around some fences!), but we had the Casino area all to ourselves and the PERFECT glowy light. Give me a willow tree and a sunset, and I’m one happy photographer!
I can’t wait to be back in Detroit with Meghan and Mike next June… this time, for their wedding!
