Detroit Athletic Club Proposal
Early in the week, Jeff called me and nonchalantly mentioned that he was going to be proposing to his girlfriend later that week. He inquired whether or not I was available to photograph the event. After a quick check of the calendar, it was confirmed I was able (and excited) to help Jeff turn his vision into a reality. Jeff told me he was planning a Detroit Athletic Club proposal. The Detroit Athletic Club, or DAC, is one of Detroit’s most revered landmarks. It speaks of elegance and class. He told me a few of his ideas and I suggested we meet up at the DAC to talk logistics and specifics of the event. Even though I have other proposals under my belt, each proposal needs to be planned and discussed to make sure it goes flawlessly. A few days and a few practice rounds later, the plan was in place.
We arrived early to set up for his Detroit Athletic Club proposal. Because we wanted to capture the perfect shot, additional lighting needed to be set up inconspicuously. Jeff and Andrea’s families were anxiously waiting in a nearby room. Right on time, and as fate would have it in-between large groups of guests, Jeff arrived and brought Andrea to am empty room and beautiful Christmas tree. Little did she know, her best gift was yet to come.
After a long embrace, Jeff turned Andrea, held her hands, and began speaking to her. After a few moments, her knees began to jiggle as Jeff inched closer to her, speaking softly of his love, appreciation, and dreams with her. As he knelt down and pulled out the ring, Andrea’s excitement grew and nearly overtook her. “Yes!” she voiced, as the realization of the moment began to sink in.
Special thanks to Jeff and Andrea for allowing us to be a part of your Detroit Athletic Club proposal.
