Detroit Institute of Arts Engagement | Olivia & Miles

Detroit Institute of Arts Engagement Photos

To say I was elated when Olivia reached out to me about her engagement to Miles is an understatement. She is by far one of the most kind-hearted charismatic,  casually fabulous people I have ever met. I knew that Myles was going to be equally as wonderful and it all proved to be true as we made their Detroit Institute of the Arts Engagement photos happen!

Olivia and I have actually worked together before but in a completely different field. For those of you that might not know my full photography journey, originally I thought I wanted to be a photojournalist working for someone else. Olivia was a reporter making captivating stories and together, we covered a few stories while working for The Battle Creek Enquirer.

As you might guess by now, photojournalism never worked out for me as a career and I blame it all on weddings and engagements. You can’t tell me that photographing a couple in love on one of the best and brightest days of their life isn’t the best thing ever!

Olivia also moved on from The Battle Creek Enquirer to pursue career opportunities that better suited her, to be closer to family in the greater Detroit area, and of course, to really build a life with Miles.

These two make an adventure out of everything. From trying new foods every place they go to and experiencing all that any culture or city has to offer. I think that’s why they chose New Orleans to get married and I’m happy to announce that I’ll be their wedding photographer!!!! A true city of celebration, color, vibrancy, and of course, amazing food! The best of everything!

Their engagement session really proved to me that while the Detroit Institute of the Arts is a gorgeous and easy place to have your engagement photos taken at, it’s really all about what the couple brings!

Olivia looking effortlessly stylish as always with Miles pulling out the maroon dress pants and patterned short sleeve dress shirt screamed a sophisticated New Orleans feel to me. Their giggles and playfulness is something photographers like myself can only dream about.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through their photos and are ready to see them on the blog again in mid-October next year!
