Meet Michelle + Jim | Yale University engagement session

I have yet to figure out which of the two of them have the kinder heart. Between her desire to adopt children and his desire to rescue abused animals, Michelle and Jim are quite possibly two of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever met. They are the kind of people that this world needs to see more of, and know more about. I got together with them a few days ago in Downtown New Haven, my old stomping grounds, to do their engagement session. We had dinner on the infamous Wooster St and then headed over to Yale University campus to shoot their get-to-know-you session. Despite the fact that Michelle swore she was nervous and was not a fan of getting her picture taken, she totally brought the heat to this shoot! And Jim didn’t disappoint either with that big smile of his. We parked on the street and made our way around Yale Campus right as that buttery golden light was settling in over New Haven. And if you ask me, between the gorgeous light, Michelle’s magenta dress, and the love hat was flowing between them, I’d say this went down as a fantastic shoot. But don’t just take my word for it, see for yourself…
