Sean & Jessica - Proposal

Sean had emailed me early in October asking about taking some engagement photos towards the end of the month. We talked back and forth and he explained what he wanted to do. Basically, him and his girlfriend (now fiánce) were going on a tour of Little Ceasers Arena in Detroit before the hockey game that night and he was planning on proposing during the tour somewhere. I was SO excited that I was able to photograph this and help Sean execute his plan. When I got there that day, I teamed up with some of the LCA staff running the tour to help me convince the group that I was an intern helping boost their tour program. Sean & Jessica are just great, and the love they have for each other just radiates off of them. Congratulations you two!!!!

With Roots Above And Branches Below 10 Year Tour - Detroit, MI

Ten years ago, The Devil Wears Prada released an album called With Roots Above And Branches Below. Some may say it’s not, but it’s definitely one of their best and most influential albums they’ve released. It’s the album that got me into the band despite how many times I should have prior to that. This year, they decided to do a tour in support of the anniversary of that album. Fit For A King and ‘68 are supporting them on this run. I had the chance to talk about the show and photograph it as well. Check out some photos below and read the rest of my ramblings here.

Alyssa & Steve

I remember my mom yelling for me across the house to me one day. I walked into her room and she looked at me and said “Remember Kim that I used to work with? Her daughter Alyssa is getting married, I think you should try to shoot her wedding.” I kinda laughed it off, but I immediately went into my room to my computer to add Alyssa on facebook and talk to her about it. I think I just commented on a facebook post at the time, but that sparked it. I’m not sure how Alyssa & Steve immediately felt, but I was really stoked when they decided to have me photograph their wedding. After a few weeks of emails back and forth, we set up a date for their engagement photos. We took their engagement photos last October and it was a great time. Fast forward a few months, we’re at Panera finalizing all the details and making sure everything can run as smoothly as possible. These two are some of the funniest, most kindhearted humans I’ve ever met, and I’m so thankful that they trusted me enough to be apart of their wedding day. Every single part of their day was perfect, it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day.  (Okay, it could’ve been a little less toasty out, not gonna lie. I’m sure we all melted a little bit.) So, thank you Alyssa & Steve, you’re both wonderful, I hope marriage is treating you great so far & that it continues to do so.
