This Couple Is Saying 'I Brew' | With Lume Photography

We're loving the portraits from Andrea Brandt's fun and quirky engagement session. Utilizing a local brewery, she managed to give this couple all of those magical elements while ensuring their engagement shoot is true to their story. Keeping this session light and happy while showcasing Flint's urban life makes Andrea's session with Mike and Marce a dream!

Mike works as a bartender at a brewery in Flint, Michigan, and is also a highly regarded and accomplished Dungeon Master. In case you don’t know what that is, it’s a person of the highest authority, that has ultimate decision making power, that creates and controls all events and challenges presented… in a game of Dungeons and Dragons. Marce is a free-spirited tough cookie- and his constant companion. They are completely, and undeniably, head-over-heels in love. Pretty much my dream couple. I’m going to be shooting their wedding for them later this year, and I’m so excited for that!

This is their engagement session story. We met at Tenacity Brewery in Flint where Mike works, for a quick beer, and headed out to explore the city. I’m not even kidding when I say they were singing to each other (loudly) the entire time! It was so great! We visited the old Flint water works- an abandoned water park, and walked around downtown, exploring all the old streets and spots that seem eerie and unusual. At dusk, we ended up in Buckham Alley- famous for it’s unique vibe. We wanted to make sure the beautiful string lights were on, because we knew it would be magical!

This session was incredibly fun. I wanted to tell their story, in a way that showed exactly who they are- both as a couple and individuals. Marce is fun, goofy, and has a weird sense of humor. Mike is outgoing, very high energy, and protective of Marce. They are both super fun human beings, curious, and are completely perfect together! I also wanted to capture their love for each other. You can tell they love each other deeply and are totally devoted to one another. I can’t wait to see how awesome their wedding’s going to be, and be there to capture it in beautiful photographs.
