I’m so excited to share Amy + Alanna’s engagement at Eastern Market. I’ve been looking forward to this shoot since I heard though the grapevine that Amy + Alanna got engaged. You see, these two are family. Okay, not exactly, but kind of? A few years ago, my cousin, Chrissy, married Matt and Amy is Matt’s sister. So while we aren’t related by blood, our circles wind tight and to me, we are family.
I first met Amy + Alanna at Chrissy’s Beyonce themed bachelorette party and the only thing I really knew about them is that Amy was Matt’s sister and Alanna was into Beyonce. I wish I could say that we had the most epic time becoming friends over our mutual love for Chrissy, Matt and Beyonce but as I tend to do, I pre-gamed too hard the night before and was barely alive. Just keepin’ it real, y’all.
Fast forward a bit when I got a text from Chrissy telling me that Amy + Alanna were engaged! I swear I bugged Chrissy non stop to make sure she kept putting my name in Amy and Alanna’s ears. When the date was set and the venue booked, they emailed me. The meeting before they booked me was perfection. I knew immediately, these were my people.
So here we are, at the beautiful Eastern Market. The area is so so colorful and such an amazing backdrop for these two. After Eastern Market we headed to the Z Garage, a new Detroit staple and the exact spot that Amy + Alanna got engaged. The story of these two is so sweet and I can’t wait to photograph their love story at the Masonic Temple in November. It’s going to be unreal amazing and I can’t wait to see how everything unfolds.
