Matt + Maura

Matt + Maura were home from Chicago for a quick weekend and wanted to squeeze in an engagement session. Due to our schedules the only time we could make it work was at sunrise. So these guys woke up at 5:00am with me to travel down to Belle Isle in Detroit to watch the sun come up over the Detroit River. 

It was immediately obvious that Matt + Maura were very much in love and very excited about their wedding taking place in just a few short weeks. I admired how much they admired each other and would brag about the other’s accomplishments. They talked about the future and their ideas for new businesses. They laughed a lot, which I expected being somewhat familiar with Matt’s personality from social media. 

After I delivered the session Matt sent me an email that left goosebumps on my arms. His message read like this:

"You captured how beautiful She really is. And I'm serious when I say I get emotional looking at them. These photos are something I never knew I needed, but now they are something I could never really live without. Thank you for sharing your gift with us, the passion you put behind your work, and leaving us with these photos to always hold onto." 

So yeah, sunrise engagement sessions, beautiful people, and forever love.
