Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Morris Arboretum | Avani + Ankit

Engagement

Avani and Ankit have been together for 8.5 years, after first meeting at a friend’s party at the University of Michigan. They’ll celebrate with friends and family for an Indian wedding next January. They are big time foodies and have a 2 year old cocker spaniel that Avani brought with her when she moved to the area to be with Ankit (this was after a 6 year long distance relationship!).

We wandered around University of Pennsylvania’s Morris Arboretum in for a while for their engagement pictures. If you’ve never been to this gem of a place just north of Chestnut Hill, I definitely recommend it. Morris Arboretum is gorgeous. You’ll see.

They changed into more formal and traditional Indian garb and we continued on. They looked great together. I loved her tunic.

Ankit knew that he wanted to propose to Avani but time was running out as she was just about to go on a trip to London for a few weeks but she had a terrible cold. Regardless, they were in the basement together, surrounded by tissues, and he popped the question. He gave her this incredible stone and they chose the ring together.

Avani and Ankit, thanks for spending the evening with me! Congratulations again!

So you know I generally post teaser images that are loving and romantic and make you say, "awww…" but I just couldn't do that with Emily and Chris. Don't get me wrong, we have plenty of lovey pictures from their engagement session around the Art Museum yesterday, but this just seemed more representative of these two as a couple.Totally goofy, totally fun, and totally in love.More soon. I promise.

Moorestown, New Jersey Engagement Photographer | Strawbridge Park | Courtney + Ryan
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 ...
