When we were talking about potential engagement session locations and ideas, these two let me know that they love trying new brews, so a Detroit brewery engagement session seemed like the perfect fit. We started at Eastern Market Brewing, which has the perfect vibe (plants, wood tables, cute glasses, big windows, yes!). The key to shooting indoors is to have that big window light. It makes all the difference in the world! I didn’t try the beer (but heard it was good).
After finishing the brews, we headed downtown to catch some of the holiday decor. I’m glad we split the session because going downtown during the holidays on weekends is always tough, especially when there’s beautiful weather. I think these two got the last beautiful day of the year…you can’t tell that winter was on its way!
I do love shooting with the lights and decor in Campus Martias and Capitol Park. There’s really nothing like that time of year downtown.
Before we finished, I asked if they wanted to run up to the Z Lot’s top floor just for a few sunset photos. It was too beautiful to pass up. We quickly ran up there and finished our session with the most beautiful November sunset. Little did I know that these would be the last photos before they put up a fence at that lot. I’m so glad to have these!
More Detroit brewery engagement sessions please! Bringing me to your favorite places is encouraged!
Can’t wait to celebrate Alison and Tom in November!
