Back in 2011, we took some amazing photos of The Village of Rochester Hills. This outdoor mall is a hot spot in the area, and boasts many popular storefronts that get business no matter what the weather is like. It’s easy to see why the residents of Rochester Hills (and beyond!) love spending time here, whether they’re shopping for something specific, eating at one of the fine restaurants, or just browsing and enjoying the scenery with a cup of Starbucks. We took these photographs in late October, as you can see by all their beautiful autumn decorations. The Village of Rochester Hills really outdoes themselves when it comes to seasonal decor. The mall was peppered with cornstalks, hay barrels, seasonal planters, and of course, the beautiful changing colors of all the trees. All of these factors in one experience made for some beautiful photographs.
We went out there in a chilly night in November a few days after taking those last photographs, and we were able to catch some beautiful lighting right at dusk. Though much of the seasonal decor was taken down, the beauty was not diminished. The twinkling lights and colorful trees made it the perfect night for a date, a family night, or to take some amazing photographs! The gazebo in the courtyard makes an excellent spot to stop and rest and take in the pristine grounds. This upscale mall keeps its charm year round, and you can really feel that “magical sunset” feeling in these photographs.
How beautiful would it be to walk around this mall in the evening? The Village of Rochester Hills is a treasured part of this area, and we’re so happy to be located near it. We’ll be frequenting this mall for both personal and professional reasons for years to come!
