Detroit Engagements

Show Them Your Love


setting expectations

Engagement sessions are a great way to connect and get to know each other. You will also see how I work and I will see how you are in front of the camera. We use the engagement photo time to practice for the big wedding day to make you both feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. I will help you choose the perfect Detroit engagement photo location that best matches you as a couple. I also have a photography studio located in Southfield, MI in case you wanted indoor portraits. My goal is for you to already start celebrating this next chapter of your life. We will have lots of fun.

In the past, couples used to do their engagement portraits a year before the wedding, but with the times now, some couples are waiting closer to the wedding date. It really depends on what you need and when you need it. I recommend getting it done between 6-8 months before your wedding or as soon as you get engaged.

New Beginnings


Very professional and timely. We had a change in reception venue 2 days before the wedding and Katrina took it in stride. Made the entire bridal party comfortable when setting up for photos even in the time crunch that came about.


Do you offer engagement portraits by itself for your wedding clients only? I do offer engagement sessions as a stand alone photography services, but it is included for my wedding photo collections as well. 

How many outfits should we wear for our engagement photos? Many of my brides love sending me their outfits ahead of time so I can help them plan their engagement looks. We also review outfits in accordance to location and style. I will help you every step of the way. I recommend wearing 2 different outfits, one more casual and one more dressier. Tip, if you only want to wear one outfit, definitely pick the dressier one.

How long does the engagement photo session last? Engagement photos typically last an hour. The best time of day for the session is either 9am or 7pm in the summer and 9am and 4pm in the winter.
