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.
