Mikey + Samantha // A Princeton Engagement

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." Dr. Seuss

We had the most amazing time working with Mikey and Sammi for their engagement session at Princeton University! This was our first time shooting at Princeton, so finding the most amazing spots on campus took us a bit of trekking and exploring, but eventually we found the heart of campus and we were blown away by dark academia vibes on this campus. There's a reason Princeton is ranked as one of the most beautiful universities in the US, and we're so grateful that Mikey and Sammi were willing to explore with us. We cannot wait to capture their wedding day next year at The Grove at Centerton!

Mikey and Samantha's engagement story is a whole saga. Last summer, Mikey and Sammi were planning on doing a photo session with one of their friends who had recently started a photography business, but it had gotten rained out. So this year as Mikey was planning the proposal, he reached back out to their friend to try to incorporate the proposal into a rescheduled session. So their friend reached out to Samantha to reschedule the session, and as she and Sammi were planning the session, Mikey had already preplanned everything with the photographer, but Sammi thought everything was her idea so she had no idea the proposal was coming. Mikey proposed during their session with their song playing in the background. Sammi was shocked and as Mikey was asking her to marry him, she couldn't help but notice the ring box was turned upside down! Luckily the ring stayed in the box, and they were engaged! After they finished their session, Mikey surprised her again with both of their families waiting at a restaurant. They then spent the weekend in Princeton, so naturally this was the perfect location for their engagement session! Enjoy their beautiful Princeton engagement!
