The Belt Engagement | Hannah & David

March 19, 2022

The Belt in Detroit is a highly requested location for engagement sessions, and every time I shoot there, I am reminded how stinking great this place is. I have lived within 15 minutes of the city for most of my adult life and have loved watching the city change and grow.  Call me a nerd, but I love finding out the history of interesting locations and why they are named the way they and what their name means–yup, I am that girl on Wikipedia whenever we are traveling–so, I just looked at the history of the Belt–and its name.  The Library Street Collective curated this artistic space and named it for the former downtown garment district (take a look here).  And, now we both know:)

Whatever the history, it was completely fitting to show off Hannah & David.  We spent the evening exploring the Belt, enjoyed the skyline, and walked Woodward Avenue.  These two are planning to be married at Old St Mary’s church with a celebration after at Colony Club. It’s bound to be an incredible summer wedding!
