Princeton University Engagement Shoot • New Jersey • Samantha & David

Princeton University Engagement Shoot

Samantha and David chose to get married at The Inn at Barley Sheaf, a beautiful wedding venue nestled in the town of Holicong in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The Inn features the main manor house, an outdoor wedding gazebo and acres of beautiful gardens. If you’re visiting the area, The Inn at Barley Sheaf is only a short distance from New Hope, Pennsylvania, which is a wonderful town I grew up visiting quite frequently.

I absolutely adore shooting in Princeton, New Jersey. The architecture is gorgeous, the Princeton University Campus has an endless supply of nooks and crannies to shoot in and the whole experience of getting to walk through such a historic town makes for a great photography session. If you have never been, you simply must visit the Princeton University Chapel. The interior of the church is simply gorgeous. If any brides and grooms are reading this and are getting married at the University Chapel, please contact me, because I would LOVE to shoot there!

Samantha and David did great during their engagement session. One of the most important aspects of any shoot is to be comfortable with who you are and to be comfortable with your partner. If you are relaxed I can guarantee your photographs will turn out beautiful.
