Fall Princeton University Engagement

Princeton, New Jersey


So many of my couples find me online via Instagram, but Brianne and Scott were actually at a wedding that I shot in September! In fact, Scott was a groomsman, and he sent me an email when he and Brianne began planning their wedding.

I was so excited when Brianne and Scott chose Princeton University as the location for their engagement session! The campus is absolutely stunning, and I couldn’t wait to explore all of the gorgeous spots with these two.

Brianne and Scott are high school sweethearts!

As Brianne tells it, “Scott and I met our sophomore year of high school. I was a member of our school’s Varsity hockey team and Scott was a transfer student who would be joining the team. While the season didn’t start until the fall, it was a small school so new faces stuck out (and I happened to have a bit of a crush on him from afar!). However, our first official meeting wasn’t until the first hockey practice of the season. After a few close encounters on the ice, it was only a matter of time before Scott sent me a message on AIM trying to plan our first date!”

Brianne and Scott got engaged in March of 2021! “Scott and I lived in Jersey City together for 3 years before moving to Montclair during COVID. One Friday when he knew I had a hair appointment in Jersey City, he made plans for us to go out to dinner nearby since we were in the area. Before we got to the restaurant, he asked if I wanted to walk along the water in Liberty State Park since we had some time to kill before our dinner reservation. Sure enough, he surprised me and proposed! Our families were both waiting for us at Liberty House after to celebrate.”

Her ring is absolutely STUNNING — an oval shaped diamond with a thin diamond band. “It is so perfect and exactly what I wanted — I may have hinted about it to Scott via his Instagram DMs a few times along the way, but it was a complete surprise until he proposed!”

Together these two love going out to dinner, spending time with their families, and going down the shore in the summer. They are getting married next October at Maritime Parc in Jersey City — which is actually in Liberty State Park where they got engaged, making their venue choice all the more meaningful.

I can’t wait to see these two again next year, I know their wedding will be absolutely beautiful!
