Veronica and I were roommates in college and have been good friends ever since, so I was absolutely delighted when she asked me to shoot her engagement photos. My husband and I spent a very fun weekend with V and her fiance Naim in Detroit, which is where he grew up. Turns out, Naim knows everything about that city! Everywhere we went, he could relate a story or tell us a thing or two about its history. We had a great time, and are so happy that two wonderful people found each other and are beginning their lives together. Congratulations Veronica and Naim, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you in November!
The happy couple is pictured here with the engagement saxophone that Veronica got for Naim. Love that!
After I professed my love for the graffiti’d background, they raised their eyebrows. ‘Oh, we can show you some REAL graffiti,’ they said. And did they ever. This whole alleyway was completely covered in paint. What a sight!
We paid a visit to the University of Michigan law quad. It. Was. Stunning.
We also visited the Heidelberg Project: a section of a Detroit neighborhood whose vacant lots and houses have been transformed into art. You can read more about it here!
