Ellen and Alex “Engagement photos”

Ellen and Alex asked me to shoot their weeding and it was coming up in a week or so.  They had never gotten engagement photos, so we got together at Alex’s Dad’s house in West Bloomfield the Sunday before the wedding and shot these.  The home has a wonderful back yard and landscaping and the bright fall day make shooting easy and fun.  Alex has Russian heritage and Ellen has Chinese.  The bringing together of two very different culture in another unique American culture.
