Detroit, Michigan | Downtown Detroit Alternative Engagement Session | Jessica + Jon

There is so much to say about these two. Jessica and Jon were a hoot to photograph; they have this connection with each other that just makes you smile. Jessica is a wedding photographer in the Detroit area, so it was an honor and so much fun to photograph another photographer. The first words out of her mouth was “sorry we’re awkward, I’m not use to being on this side of the camera” I love being comfortable on both sides of the camera, I feel like it helps my clients be more comfortable. I always embrace the weird and awkward; those candid moments can be some of my favorite images.

We met up right outside downtown Detroit and went out finding unique places to take pictures. We decided on photographing around midday, which is one of my favorite times to photograph. I embrace the sun, and as you can see from the images, it doesn’t take away from the quality and we still had places to photograph. One of my favorite places we stopped had these teal arches that have reflectors on them. It’s a place I plan on going back to, to see the reflectors at night. We also stopped at one of Jessica’s to go to spots for her own photography and had a blast exploring. Congrats again to you both on your engagement, keep having fun together and enjoy life and your family.
