Detroit Engagement

2018 Year in Review by Lia Giannotti Photography

Hi everyone! Happy New Year!

Ok, ok, I know I say it every year, but THIS WILL BE THE YEAR I START BLOGGING CONSISTENTLY! There, I just put it into the universe, so I have to do it. Honestly though, I always have the best of intentions, and I’m always aware that I have to blog more, but in the midst of shooting, editing, delivering galleries, office end, etc, etc, it gets put on the back burner. So this year, I promise you, it’s getting written into my calendar, and I’m holding myself accountable. So stay tuned for wedding and engagement magic hitting the blog this year!

The other day, New Year’s Eve to be exact, I sat down at my desk and spent countless hours trying to pull images from all of this past years weddings and engagements. It was no small feat! Of course I had way too many photos, and couldn’t possibly include all of my favorites, but I was able to pull some gems from each into this video. If an entire year can be put into a few short minute clip, I suppose this is it. However, it doesn’t nearly cover all the emotions I’ve felt being able to capture these moments.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank everyone for their support, in trusting me to capture some of the biggest moments of your lives this past year. Because of you, I was able to do what I'm truly passionate about, and that's capturing these fleeting moments in time, so that they live on forever. The happiness, joy, laughter, tears, and every single emotion in between is what I'm driven to capture. I want you to FEEL and not just see these photos. The friendships and relationships formed along the way are just the icing on the cake, and I value each one of you. I am forever grateful to you, and excited to see what 2019 brings. I wish you all the very best in 2019! I hope you enjoy what I put together! xo, Lia

Codey + Taylor // A Summer's Evening Detroit Engagement Session

You know what they say right? Better late than never? Well that's me on posting these photos! ;) 

Last month, Taylor, Codey + I ran off to downtown Detroit to take their engagement photos. It was the most perfect summer evening. The light was amazing, temp just right, and these two really were icing on the cake. I loved their interaction, small spontaneous gestures, the way one would make the other laugh, and just how connected they were. I told them they seemed like they've been together forever. And to top it off, I told them the last shot was their choice, and what did they do without my even expecting it? Codey picked Taylor up and swung her around in the most perfect way possible. It was the mic drop moment of the evening. 

So in honor of this weekend being their official wedding weekend, here are a few favorites from their session. I honestly can't wait to capture their day, and celebrate with them. Hope you enjoy!
