STEPHANIE + JEFF | Belle Isle Engagment | Detroit, MI

June 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I've come to realize every time I get to work with a new couple or family, I think it's the most fun I've had doing a shoot yet. I guess that means I just truly love what I do, which isn't a bad thing. I mean come on, how lucky am I that these people chose ME to capture their special moments for them? I think it's pretty awesome, and a HUGE compliment.

Jeff was a groomsman in one of my 2015 weddings that I photographed for the lovely Mr. and Mrs. Corbeil. When Steph contacted me, telling me her and Jeff were engaged, I couldn't be more excited for them. I knew just from talking to Steph that we were going to have a blast at their engagement shoot.

I always try to capture the personality of the couples that I photograph. I want their photos to tell a story about who they are, and show why they are perfect for each other. With Steph and Jeff, all I had to do was click the button. The amount of happiness and laughter that they bring to each others lives is unexplainable. Sometimes during shoots I have to make a sad attempt at telling a joke, or think of what outlandish thing I can say to get my clients to relax and go with the flow. This wasn't the case with these two love birds. I found myself smiling and laughing with them so much that I knew this was going to be one of my favorite shoots to date. I COULD NOT WAIT to get home and get to work editing these puppies - and sure enough I smiled the entire time I was working. 

Check out some of my favorite shots from their engagement shoot!
