Engagement Shoot at Comstock Field: A Tribute to Love and Yankees Baseball

One of the most fulfilling aspects of being a wedding photographer is capturing the essence of a couple’s unique story. Recently, I had the privilege of photographing an engagement session at Comstock Field in Ivoryton, CT, a shoot that beautifully encapsulated the couple’s shared love for the New York Yankees and their passion for baseball. This session was not only a testament to their love for each other but also a reminder of how personalizing your engagement shoot can make the experience and the photos even more special.

The Setting: Comstock Field in Ivoryton, CT

Comstock Field provided the perfect backdrop for this engagement session. Nestled in the charming town of Ivoryton, CT, the field boasts a classic baseball diamond surrounded by lush greenery. The well-maintained field, with its nostalgic charm, was an ideal setting for capturing the essence of the couple’s love story.

The Couple: Yankees Fans for Life

From the moment we discussed their engagement shoot, it was clear that the couple shared a deep bond over their love for the New York Yankees. They wanted to incorporate this shared passion into their engagement photos, and what better way to do so than at a baseball field? They arrived wearing their Yankees jerseys, each emblazoned with their favorite player’s number, and brought along a few baseball props to enhance the theme.

Capturing the Moment

As the sun began to set, casting a golden glow over the field, we started the shoot. The couple’s playful energy and genuine affection for each other were evident in every shot. We took photos of them tossing a baseball back and forth, sitting on the bleachers, and even sharing a kiss at home plate. The Yankees jerseys added a personal touch, making the photos not just beautiful but deeply meaningful to them.

Why Choose a Meaningful Location?

Choosing a location that holds significance to you as a couple can add an extra layer of meaning to your engagement photos. Whether it’s a place where you shared your first date, a spot where you frequently spend time together, or a location tied to a shared hobby or interest, these places help tell your unique story. Comstock Field was perfect for this couple because it represented not just their love for each other, but also their shared memories and experiences as Yankees fans.

Incorporating Hobbies and Interests

Your engagement session is a chance to showcase who you are as a couple. Here are some creative ways to incorporate your hobbies and interests into your shoot:

  1. Sports Enthusiasts: Just like our Yankees fans, if you and your partner share a love for a particular sport, consider a session at a stadium or field. Wear your team’s jerseys, bring along some sports equipment, and capture the excitement and energy of your favorite game.
  2. Board Game Lovers: Set up a cozy scene with your favorite board games. Capture moments of you both enjoying a friendly game night. This can be done at home, in a café, or even outdoors with a picnic setup.
  3. Bookworms: Head to a library or a quaint bookstore. Capture candid moments of you both browsing through books, reading together, or discussing your favorite novels.
  4. Coffee Aficionados: Visit your favorite coffee shop. Order your usual drinks and have your photos taken while you enjoy your coffee together. This setting provides a relaxed and intimate atmosphere.
  5. Foodies: If you and your partner love cooking or trying new foods, consider a session in your kitchen or at a local market. Capture the joy of cooking together or sampling delicious treats.
  6. Nature Lovers: For those who enjoy the great outdoors, consider a hike, a picnic in the park, or a visit to a botanical garden. Nature provides a stunning backdrop and can make for some truly breathtaking photos.
  7. Pet Owners: Include your furry friends in your engagement shoot. Whether it’s a playful session at the park or a cozy moment at home, pets add an element of fun and spontaneity to your photos.
  8. Artists and Creatives: If you share a passion for art, music, or any other creative endeavor, incorporate this into your shoot. Paint together, play musical instruments, or showcase any other creative activity you both enjoy.

Encouraging Personalization

The key to a memorable engagement session is making it personal. When you look back at your photos, you should see reflections of your relationship, your passions, and your shared experiences.

This playful rivalry added a dynamic layer to the shoot, highlighting their spirited personalities and competitive yet loving bond. It was a fun and unique way to celebrate another aspect of their relationship, showing that while they may root for different teams, their love for each other is always on the same side.
