Engagement session at the Detoit Zoo

We photographed a phenomenal engagement session a the Detroit Zoo Monday for Molly and Justin - he works there so this was extra special and we were lucky enough to be there when the polar bear was being fed. This made for some awesome images of the majestic bear, with the water all around us, while we were in the tunnel for quite some time - the arctic ring of life. What a fun, incredible experience for all of us - we sure did ENJOY! Molly and Justin, Engagement session at the Detroit Zoo

Our 10x20 Folios entered for DPPA Competition

We designed some folios of our work and entered them into the  Detroit Professional Photographers Association in April in the 3 categories - wedding, portrait and illustrative - for both Julie and myself - Wally.  These were 10x20 single image photos on a hard cardboard backing.  This is the same size as an album spread and can also be framed.  There were quite a few entries; they were judged by our peers and we will find out the results at the DPPA banquet in June.

Kelley and Vince Engagement Session December 2, 08

Kelley and Vince

We photographed another great engagement session for Kelly and Vince on November 2nd.  Although it was getting colder, we still had some fall color and clear skies.  We enjoyed the Rochester Park along Paint Creek in several locations. The great Sunflower wall behind Andiamos that we all love so much was great, we even tried some other interesting places around  it.   Then we tried a new location in Rochester close to the cement factory - we loved the tall grass. We are looking forward to their wedding on June 27th and Look forward to designing a sign in book with the best of these images.

Quick Porch Pics for Save the date cards and magnets

As we are working with and booking our couples for the 2008 wedding season, we are finding that many are interested in "Save the Date" cards and magnets etc. I have been working with some new design software to come up with some modern designs. I am also trying to work out ways to be able to photograph some simple relaxed fun images right here in my wide front porch.  Courney and Matt were interested in this and we gave it a try - this time with a soft background I have.   I will soon be adding some white rollup shades.

Leslie and Dave Engagement Session

On November 11th we photographed the engagement session for Leslie nad DAve at the Henry Ford Estate.  Even though it was fairly late in the fall season, we were still able to find some great fall color.  They were game for going out on the rock ledge by the falls which made for some great images.  At the end we were fortunate to find a spectacular yellow tree on the road out of the estate which made for some more terrific fall color images.

Gretchen and Richard Engagement Session

Lat October 21st we photographed an engagement session for Gretchen and Richard. We started out at their beautiful home in Bloomfield Hills and then went on to a nearby park to enjoy the fantastic fall color.  The highlight was photographing them with his new blue Corvette.  Even their dog joined us at the end. The fall is such a great and popular time.  It was a lot of fun and always great to personalize sessions like this with the things that mean something to you personally. We are looking forward to their wedding next July. Gretchen and Richard Engagement

Timing Update & Site for 2007 Holiday Specials

Julie and I are running a little behind right now in the editing of the weddings, but we are working very hard to get them on line as quickly as possible. The fall has been our very busiest time - photographing 14 weddings from the middle of September to the first weekend in November.  We loved every one of these and are very grateful.   I have been busy with album designs also to get out some of those those gorgeous albums in time for holiday delivery.  My blog updates are also a little behind because we are concentrating on getting out the main uploads, but will try to catch up here also. We have also enjoyed photographing some family groups and engagement sessions which will be featured here also.

We have a web site page live right now - in all browsers (that was a problem at first) that has some of the specials we have going on right now in time for the holidays.  We still have time to make reprints, and even Holiday cards.  Any order of reprints from the online proofing that is over $100 will automatically be discounted 10% by myself when I adjust the totals. Gift certificates are always a great idea also.

Erin and Shane Engagement session at the capitol Building in Lansing 8-21-07

Erin and Shane met in Lansing when they worked as pages in the House of Representatives in Lansing. So an engagement session there was very special.They even had special permission to get on the floor of the House of Representatives. Julie photographed this with the help of our good friend and great photographer and mentor Claude Jodoin. Everyone had a great time and ended up with many fabulous images.  They even got much applause from people peeking out of windows when they were jumping on the steps outside. What a great idea.The weather even co-operated beautifully. Erin and Shane Engagement

Sarah and Adam Engagement Session

On August 10th we photographed an engagement session with Sarah and Adam in Rochester.  From behind the new Park Place Hotel we could get to an old bridge over Paint Creek, we really enjoyed this area.  Then we drove to the Van Husen Farm where again the Paint Creek snaked through the property.  We loved the bridge and they took off their shoes and waded in the water- we all had a great time.

Michael and Megan - Urban Engagement Session

On August 9, 2007 Julie and I photographed an Urban Engagement session with Michael and Megan in Detroit. It did start to sprinkle while we were in the city but still managed to get some great shots at the Comerica  Park Tiger and Hockey Town.  We proceeded to Belle Isle and the weather was clearer. We enjoyed the old Casino Building with its arches and bridges and the lake close by. We ended by going to the tip of the island for spectacular views of the Detroit Skyline in the background.Michael & Megan Michael Megan

Engagement Session with Patrice and Barry May 27

Julie and I photographed an engagement session with Patrice and Barry at the Henry Ford Estate last Sunday. Barry brought his own Model T, so we sure had fun with it.  It was extremely sunny so Julie was able to do a lot of very cool infra red images. We look forward to their wedding at the Estate this July 14th - coming up soon. We really love working at the Estate. Patrice Barry Engement

Mary and Jeremy Engagement Session at Wyngate

On October 14th Mary and Jeremy were in town for their engagement party at the beautiful Wyngate Golf and Country Club in Rochester.  We did some engagement photos just before the party began. The weather was very chilly but they were such troopers and we had so much fun.  We had our own golf cart to roam around the beautiful grounds - the lighting and the fall colors were great, they were fantastic and we ended up with a lot of awesome images.  Looking forward to their wedding  next March.

Amy and Ken’s Engagement Session at the Henry Ford Estate

Last Sunday we photographed Amy and Ken's engagement session at the beautiful Henry Ford Estate. Their wedding will be at the beginning of September.  We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the grounds.  We took way too many shots  as usual - but really ended up with some great images. I played with some special effects on a few - especially the "pencil" and soft pastel rendering. Lots of great black and white and sepia also. Amy and KEn Engagement
