Back in January, we made a trek down to Detroit to have a “casual” portrait session with couple Brian and Jenn. Little did Jenn know, this would be the day she got engaged! We witnessed and photographed a beautiful proposal, then we walked around Detroit taking their engagement pictures. Proposal photography is definitely some of our favorite images. So beautiful! Check out some of their favorites below!
2016 was a very busy year for Arising Images and Acre 6. We photographed landscapes, high school seniors, weddings, families, volleyball, home interiors, commercial businesses, head shots, and lots more. Trying to come up with a list of top favorite photos is extremely difficult. From the 148 jobs that we photographed, there were HUNDREDS of favorite photographs and memories from the year but we narrowed it down to our top 75. These are our favorites for various reasons; some of them because they were amazing photos, some were awesome people, or some sparked incredible memories for us. It was really difficult to leave people out but we had to cut back as even 75 is probably too many.
Here they are in no particular order.
Back in September, we had the pleasure of taking engagement photos for an awesome couple. Fall engagement photography is some of our favorite images to capture – the fall color, couples all snuggled up together in the golden sunlight, the crisp air… it’s seriously perfect. Jodie and Matt were not only fun to photograph, they’re practically models. Just look at them! We were so happy that we got to photograph them. Not only that, but their wedding is this month – we’re so excited for them! We did their fall engagement photography on our 6 acre property in Orion, and this time of year, it’s the perfect spot. Our tall trees are beaming with assorted colors, and the sunlight filters through the trees in a way that makes the lighting perfect. Their photos are so sweet, you have to take a look for yourself!
Jodie and Matt took full advantage of our property and got images by our barn, waterfall, and huge fields/trees. They were so comfortable around us, and so sweet with each other, we have a really good hunch that their wedding photos will be just as amazing as their fall engagement photography.
How amazing is the beautiful sunlight in this next photo?!
These two lovebirds sure did make our job easy. Thanks so much, Matt and Jodie, for trusting us with your engagement photography! We couldn’t be more honored. We’re wishing you the most beautiful wedding day you can imagine, and a lifetime of happiness together.
Early this October we had the pleasure of taking some amazing Cranbrook engagement photography with Emily and Thomas. Emily and Thomas are a wonderful, and fun couple! They were so amazing to be around, and to photograph. We have the honor of capturing this wonderful couple’s wedding next October. We already know it’s going to be a blast! We met up at the beautiful Cranbrook House and Gardens for their engagement session. A perfect location for photographing a couple in love!
Even in early October, the colors of the Cranbrook garden create such a magical and romantic scene. The perfect place to showcase Thomas and Emily’s love!
We love engagement photography because it gives us a chance see a more casual side of our wedding clients. Emily and Thomas are the sweetest, and most amazing couple ever!
Thank you so much for letting us capture this amazing time in life, Emily and Thomas! We can’t wait for your wedding next October!
This October we were overjoyed to be able to capture some Ann Arbor engagement photography with Molly and Joe. We are super excited to be able to capture these amazing moments for this wonderful couple. We have the honor of working with them next June as they tie the knot! Molly and Joe met while they were both attending the University of Michigan. Naturally, downtown Ann Arbor, was the perfect setting choice to showcase their engagement. It’s so nice being able to work with your wedding clients on a more personal and casual level. Working with this couple was absolutely wonderful!
The fall colors are so vibrant! It make the perfect back drop for such a warm and loving couple!
Of course, it doesn’t get much cuter than this!
This couple truly make our hearts melt.
Thank you so much for letting us capture this special time in life for you, Molly and Joe! We are super excited to see you again in June for your big day!
