Olivia & Frank

Olivia and Frank are probably one of the funniest and cutest couples I had ever photographed. They were so much fun and full of life and I truly felt honored to be taking their engagement photos. They really wanted something casual, fun and photos that truly integrated with their personalities. That's why I thought heading to Depot Park was the perfect location for them.

To start of their engagement session, Olivia and Frank brought a few drinks to help loosen them up. Of course, this isn't uncommon for couples to do during sessions since it is a great way to loosen up and calm down especially if you're nervous in front of the camera. Just make sure not to get TOO crazy - LOL. After loosening up, we began walking around Downtown Clarkston, Michigan which is actually where I grew up! It was fun being able to be in the town where I used to grow up being able to do what I love.. it truly was a surreal moment. Like I said before, Olivia and Frank are one of the funniest couples I have ever had the pleasure to work with so being around them was such a fun time. They truly were themselves in front of the camera which made photographing them that much more special.

After finishing running around Downtown Clarkston, we made our way to Depot Park. Depot Park is one of those spots in Clarkston where a TON of people get their photos taken especially for prom & homecoming. While we weren't getting ready for any special dances, the park is a fan favorite for a reason so we had to take full advantage. For all of you couples in the midst of planning your engagement photos/wedding, take this as a sign to have fun with your partner! Getting photos taken can be scary as it is and the last thing we want is to have your engagement photos looking completely unnatural and unlike you. It's not everyday that you get to have memories like this captured, so take full advantage of the moment, be yourselves and have fun. I will supply the rest *wink*.

As we ran around Depot Park, we began to lose track of time. The sun had set and the sky began to darken but guess what... we didn't care. We still stood there taking photos and even popped open a bottle of champagne to celebrate the two lovers engagement. A down right good time is what I would have to call this day. Nothing but smiles and a ton of laughs were exchanged and I felt so happy leaving the session knowing that these photos were going to be beautiful. Oh and you know what... they were.
