boho Detroit engagement photo session
Over the summer, I photographed Denise + Adam’s boho Detroit engagement photo session at some of their favorite spots in the city. We met at Kiesling a super rad bar in Detroit that’s now one of my favorites! I’m so glad they love color like I do, because we were able to incorporate a lot of it into their session! Something else they wanted to incorporate was the VW bus Adam gutted, fixed up and now they travel around having adventures together. How sweet is this?! So much fun! I can’t wait for their June 2020 wedding!
About this lovely couple:
Denise – Elementary Music Teacher
Adam – Engineer
Met: November 2017
How they met:
We met by matching on Coffee Meets Bagel, immediately “hitting it off” by talking about drums… and sharing an equally punny sense of humor. :) We had so much fun playing trivia and getting to know each other on our first date at Ascension Brewing Company. I didn’t even realize we had stayed past closing until the staff started putting the chairs up at our table!
Their engagement story:
We have a goal to visit all 50 states by the time we turn 50, an idea that began after an amazing trip to California and Yosemite National Park in summer of 2018. When we went to Arizona to visit Adam’s parents for Christmas later that year, we decided to tack on a weekend trip to the Grand Canyon. Little did I know it was all part of a “Grand” plan towards spending our lives together. On that cold December morning we woke up early to watch the sun rise over the South Rim of the park. Adam asked if we could take a little walk on part of the Bright Angel Trail since we were already bundled up. As we made our way along the trail Adam recalled an arch that his family had seen on the trail when he was younger. When we approached the arch he said he’d like to take a picture of me walking through it (which was not out of the ordinary since Adam often takes more pictures on our trips together). Turning that corner and walking through the Bright Angel arch changed my life forever as I walked towards Adam down on one knee with the ring in his hand!
Song that reminds Denise of Adam: Incubus “Stellar”
