Exploring Downtown Detroit

You’ve probably noticed that Detroit has so many venues… well it also has so many photography and videography opportunities! The city offers everything from city skyscrapers, urban graffiti walls, and waterfront romantic views – making Downtown Detroit Weddings truly magical. The goal is to have instagrammable wedding photos, am I right?! 

Luckily, you don’t have to choose just one of these locations. Pick a few Detroit spots that speak to you, and talk with your photographer and videographer to make a plan for your romantic sessions. While our photographers and wedding videographers will always have a soft spot for iconic Detroit photo-op locations like the giant tiger in front of Comerica Park or the Fox Theatre marquee, we also included some other areas throughout the city our team discovered over the years.

I bundled DJ, Videography and Photography with Mike Staff for my wedding. Everything turned out great and the three men who provided services to us were fantastic. On time, helped out with things they didn't have to and were very fun to be around. Ten out of ten and if I ever need these services in the future, Mike Staff will get my business again!
