Kristin & Sean’s Princeton Battlefield engagement photos were cold, fun and filled with Legos! They have been so amazing to be around since we first had our initial meeting. I love to learn and find out about couples’ interests when we first get to know each other and they had some pretty awesome little tidbits to share. First, they both love Legos and build them together. Second that Sean builds and races drones, which is incredible, and he was excited that I use mine for shooting venue scene setter photographs.
We first met at Palmer Square by the Nassau Inn to start their session. It was right after Christmas and they had holiday lights on trees and other festive décor. This was a good location to start as it was relatively quiet and a good place to start having this couple warm up to shooting. The crazy part was that across from the Nassau Inn, there is a toy store. In the window display it just so happened to be filled with tons of different Legos sets. This is when I knew this location was meant to be for them.
Princeton Battlefield State Park
Typically, I would shoot on the campus of Princeton but it was so nice out on their day. We decided to go right to the Princeton Battleground to finish their GTKY (Getting to Know You) session. The skies were incredible so we captured a few frames with my infrared camera to really show off the landscape and clouds. The session ended at the Princeton Battlefield in front of the columns. I had fun with Sean there. He is relatively shy and I was joking with him like he was a professional model. Similar to the Zoolander scene when he was photographing.
It was a perfect session and can’t wait for Kristin & Sean’s wedding at Grounds for Sculpture this year!
