Belle Isle engagement photography

A mid fall session of Belle Isle engagement photography.  This couple got engaged on Belle Isle, Detroit, MI  and wanted to honor that occasion by doing their engagement shots at the same place.  We started at the Casino.  I really like the arches and banisters, it is such a grand building with great color.  We did some fun shots of them sitting on steps and on benches in front of the Casino.  I even did a shallow depth of field vertical panorama composite for fun.  It is quite striking.

For more Belle Isle engagement photography we then moved to Scott Fountain to shoot where the actual proposal happened.  The fountain had just been shut off for the season a few days before, but we still got some nice images.  The sun was really low in the sky and it made for some nice direct lit portraits.  We then went to the Detroit side of the island and used the Detroit skyline and the Belle Isle Bridge as backdrops.  They brought out the flag of the college they went to, Olivet, and used it as a wrap.
