Samantha and Mike: Couple’s Session at Yale New Haven

Once upon a time, I took photos of Samantha, Mike, and their pup Simon at Hogwarts. There was a castle, bustling students, and magical corners of light to be found. OK, to be honest this session wasn’t Harry Potter themed at all, but the reason I’ve been wanting to use Yale as a location for a shoot is because the buildings look straight out of Hogwarts! Massive stone structures and cobblestone streets create a magical place that’s one of the best spots for photos in CT.

Once upon a time, I took photos of Samantha, Mike, and their pup Simon at Hogwarts. There was a castle, bustling students, and magical corners of light to be found.

OK, to be honest this session wasn’t Harry Potter themed at all, but the reason I’ve been wanting to use Yale as a location for a shoot is because the buildings look straight out of Hogwarts! Massive stone structures and cobblestone streets create a magical place that’s one of the best spots for photos in CT.

We explored side streets and little hidden pockets of light to find the perfect private spots for photos. Gorgeous arches, stone walls and courtyards are everywhere on Yale’s campus! There are tons of little alcoves tucked away from the main street that create perfect private spots for photos.

 

At this point, you guys probably know that I get crazy excited any time someone wants to include their pet in a photo session. (I’m still looking for someone who wants to do an engagement session with their cat, guys!) And this session wasn’t an exception, Simon is so adorable and cuddly. And you can tell that he brings incredible joy to Mike and Samantha!

And check out this incredible wrought iron gate! Samantha asked if they could do a Beyoncé pose in front of it – to be honest, I’m not really with the times so I wasn’t sure what that meant, but I’m a big fan of the shot!

Samantha has an incredible, contagious energy that translates beautifully to photos! I met her over Instagram, and you can check her out @loveandlightbulbs!

If you’re looking for a magical place to take your engagement photos, Yale might be the place for you!
