Engagement Photos In Detroit

June 1, 2022

I had so much fun photographing this fun-loving couple’s engagement session around Detroit!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing this fun-loving couple’s engagement session around Detroit! Amber & Alex were so much fun to work with, and we had so much fun running around downtown Detroit and taking their photos! These two have such an amazing sense of humor and love for each other, it was inspiring to photograph them. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this year! Check out more from their engagement session below

The importance of an engagement photo session
I think every engaged couple should have an engagement photo session—it’s a lot of fun and allows you to build excitement for your big day in subtle ways. It also gives you great, super-personalized images to use on social media during your wedding planning process. If you’re looking for Michigan Wedding Photographer, give me a call! I’d love to do an initial phone consultation at no cost, and then if we agree that we work well together, schedule your photo shoot.

Why it pays off in the long run
Engagement photo sessions are a lot of fun and an amazing way to connect with your couples before their wedding day. Plus, they look fantastic on social media and make great additions to your portfolio! Engagement sessions are also a great way to build client relationships–they’ll likely want you as their wedding photographer after having such a positive experience with you on their engagement shoot. These photos will pay off in spades later! 😀

How to pick an engagement photographer
Choosing an engagement photographer is a lot like choosing any other vendor for your wedding: it should be someone you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. But that said, as a bride, there are some things to keep in mind when making your choice.

Tips on how to make it work (this blog post!)
As a wedding photographer, I love going above and beyond for my clients. It’s what brings me great joy in my work. What better way to do that than go on a photo shoot with you before your big day? I can be your wedding photographer AND your engagement photographer.

What exactly goes into an engagement photography session?
As a wedding photographer, it’s not uncommon for me to get asked questions about what an engagement photography session entails. It may surprise you to learn that these sessions are quite different from traditional portraits, but for many couples, it’s their first time in front of a camera together. Here are some facts and tips about engagement photography sessions:

1.Some people think they need formal attire when they head out on an engagement shoot with a Detroit wedding photographer. But actually, all you really need is comfortable clothing that looks great on camera, as well as shoes that won’t fall off or move when you jump into bushes at your favorite photo spots.

2. Who gets to pose? Engagement photo shoots typically include two people who love each other dearly and want to celebrate that love by documenting their own unique relationship through photographs

3. Where can we go? Just reach out and I can recommend some great places in Michigan.

Biggest regrets people have after their sessions
Don’t skimp on your outfits. Make sure you feel beautiful and comfortable in what you’re wearing. Wear something that makes you feel pretty, but that isn’t fussy or uncomfortable. If your shoes are uncomfortable, for example, take them off and walk barefoot on occasion. Ask to wear something different if your clothes aren’t working for you–this is a photo shoot, after all!
