Philadelphia Anniversary Photographer | Old City | Vanjul + Adarsh

Engagement

Vanjul and Adash’s session is like an engagement session but a few years after the fast. They were actually married 3 years ago in India but they don’t have any pictures of themselves from their day so they decided to make up for lost time with a sweet session in beautiful (albeit very chilly) Philadelphia.

Though there wasn’t rain the day of our session, they brought it to commemorate the rain that came down in buckets on the day of their wedding, long enough for everyone to get soaked.

Vanjul currently lives in Philadelphia, finishing her residency in pulmonology while Adarsh is in Connecticut finishing his residency in cardiology. After this long distance stretch (which began 6 months after their marriage), they’ll be moving to Washington together.

The two have been together twelve years, first meeting in medical school. There is debate over first moves.

In the little bits of free time that they do have together they golf, watch TV, and play with their sweet kitten, Cocoa.

I loved what they did with this session. The outfits, Vanjul’s bright red lipstick, and the feeling of Philly’s frosty and historic Old City made for a gorgeous combination that looks like it could have taken place in the 50s.

I’ve known Courtney for years and years. We went to grade school together. I remember going over to her house and getting amped up to go to the dinky St. Denis dance where all of the cool kids went. This has nothing to do with why I’m writing about Courtney today. When I came back from San Francisco Courtney emailed me to welcome me back to the area and said, “I want to get engaged just to get some of my own LDP originals for myself!!” Fast forward to this June when I get a new email from Courtney telling me that she got engaged that weekend and it was time for her to get those LDP wedding pics!Courtney and Ryan have been dating for about ...

A Couple Session in Florida
I've got to mention a particular couple that I photographed while I was in Tampa for the Imaging USA photography convention. Fred put me up for a few days and we spent the time reminiscing.Fred and I go waaay back. He's one of those friends that, despite the amount of time since you last saw each other, you can always just jump right back into a comfortable place. He's completely welcoming and one of the friendliest people I've ever known. I've known Fred since high school and we were pretty close til college rolled around and whisked me away to North Carolina and him to Hawaii (I guess we know who won that one!). Actually, I've known Fr ...
