Jennifer and Brenden, a Detroit engagement

When I first met Jennifer she had red stripes in her hair. “I think they might be blue for the wedding, I haven’t decided yet.” It was then that I knew this was my kind of couple! 🙂 We planned for a while for the engagement photos, loving Detroit the way they do, J and B wanted to have a downtown vibe mixed with their favorite sports team. We also wanted a nice sunny day… and I am nothing if not persistent. Second time was a charm, and boy am I glad we held out for sun! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do! This is a long post, I just couldn’t leave any of these out! 😉

I absolutely love the way they brought their style into this session! I didn’t feel like I had to think at all about what I was doing, the shutter moved of it’s own accord…

These two have such a wonderful connection. I barely gave them any direction, these reactions are completely natural!

Maybe my favorite on the left here… maybe.

Should have seen her pushing her way through the bars… we all wanted to be inside the park.

Could not have worn a more perfect dress by Betsey Johnson… Can you imagine how stylish her wedding gown will be?!

I simply adore the look on her face here. So in love, and look at those dimples!
