Detroit engagement session

Rose and Jesse's engagement session couldn't be more different than what their wedding is going to be! We talked about the juxtaposition of doing a winter session compared to the warmth that their wedding day will be. They decided that they want their day to focus solely on them and are going to be eloping to...drum roll please...Hawaii!! This is the couple who is entrusting me to capture their big day all the way in Hawaii - they'll be getting married on the Big Island on a gorgeous beach at sunset and I couldn't be more excited.

It was...SO cold during their engagement, I give such props to these two because I really don't know how we all survived this Michigan winter day and having our fingers and toes not just completely freeze. I'm so thankful for couples who are willing to try something with me; I've been WAITING to try to shoot over a manhole that's steaming in the winter cold in Detroit and honestly, these turned out magical and it warmed us all up also! In the end, this engagement shoot was sheer perfection and captures the love these too share; I can't wait to share some wedding pictures when the time comes in September!
