Will + Tamara met on their first day at the University of Pittsburgh, so it’s only fitting that their engagement session took place in the college town of Ann Arbor where Tamara’s studying for her Master’s in Architecture. We spent Saturday morning dodging the rain all over the University of Michigan’s gorgeous downtown campus. From the moment we sat down to discuss their wedding a few months ago, it was pretty obvious that Will + Tamara were made to be together. They were so in love and so at ease immediately, I don’t think they could have made my job any easier on their shoot. All I had to do was sit back and let them be themselves!
We started early at Angell Hall, and though it was a little chilly out, they were troopers. After getting cuddly at Angell, we headed over to Tappan Hall for some quick shots outside the Art History library. When we crossed the street towards the University of Michigan Law Quad we found it totally closed off and under construction. Not a problem for these two! They were happy to get in close under an awning nearby and then headed over to give the legendary Cube a spin. With the weather clearing up, we made our way down to the Nichols Arboretum, just in time, as the sun came out and we got some glorious shots down by the river. Though Will was initially a little reluctant to get in the water, with a little persuasion Tamara had him rolling up his jeans in no time flat.
It was seriously such a pleasure to work with these two, I can’t tell you how over the moon I am that they’ve asked me to photograph their wedding early next year. I can’t wait!
