It’s a big day in Detroit, Opening Day for the Tigers. For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to call yourselves Michiganders, imagine Fourth of July, the first day of Spring, and Halloween all rolled into one and then covered in tiger stripes. Coming from a state with no national sports teams, it took me a few years to acclimate to living in a state where sports were not only a part of life, but an obsession for some. Now, after almost 9 years in the state, I yell “Eat em up Tigers!” with the rest of them.
Lauren and Jeff are two people for whom Tigers baseball is an obsession. They’re season ticket holders, their apartment was in the shadow of Comerica Park, and I can tell you in the days leading up to Opening Day, Lauren’s Facebook has exclusively been devoted to her excitement for the start of the season. Well, since that day is upon us, I thought it would be appropriate to share their engagement session from last September, which we photographed right inside of Tiger Stadium, with the entire place to ourselves.
Happy Opening Day Lauren and Jeff!
