This. Is. Epic.

Sports journalist, podcast host and 2019 ESSENCE Festival speaker Jemele Hill and her fiancé Ian Wallace recently came together in their hometown of Detroit for an engagement weekend packed with parties, reunions with family and friends and…this incredible engagement shoot inspired by Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “Apes**t” video.

Filmed inside the Detroit Institute Of Arts, the cute couple borrowed some inspo from The Carters for their engagement shoot video while still giving a nod to their roots.

“So me and the fiancé decided to do something different for our engagement photo shoot,” Hill tweeted. “Just know this: When you commit, COMMIT. Enjoy. Thank you @mytouchweddings for making this happen. Shout-out to Jay Z and Beyonce for being them.”

The shoot, styled by Kenni Wallace, features several looks inspired by the “Apes**t” video, which was filmed in the famous Louvre Museum in Paris.
