{Couples Portraits} Zach & Chelsea

It was my first time in Michigan. And my first time in Detroit. My family had a cousin's wedding to attend. Sooo I decided to take Saturday morning and do a quick couple's portrait session for Zach & Chelsea (my brother & sister-in-law). They were all dolled up and lookin' pretty (and handsome).

I did a little research and was super-excited to find out about Belle Isle Park... It's on an island (COOL) and was designed by the same architect that designed Central Park in NYC (VERY cool!). Unfortunately, Belle Isle Park is a sad example of the economic crisis in Detroit. The magnificent marble fountain had no water running in it. Various attractions like the country's oldest aquarium and a small zoo were closed. I frowned a bit upon seeing all that --- I like old places to look their best, and Belle Isle has so much potential! Maybe someday, it will be restored to its former glory and I will return. :) It's something to look forward to, anyway. :)

Onward to the photos... marble steps!

And then we went over to the very-very awesome old Belle Isle Casino. I imagine that the casino isn't a casino anymore, since it was empty (except for the janitor) when we poked our heads inside. I love these balconies!

Confession: When I showed that image to my mom, she cried. Awwwww.

One last formal shot.

Quick-change into casual clothes and we went to the old conservatory! I can't even say how much I loved Belle Isle. I could've kept shooting and shooting... :)

She kinda thinks he's funny. Hehehe. It's adorable!
