Philadelphia engagement photographer | Rittenhouse Square | Angela + Robert

Engagement

I had to begin wondering if this engagement session would ever come.  Angela and Robert were coming down from New York and we had rain plan A-F for a myriad of dates.  Finally I saw them on an overcast day in Philly for their whirlwind engagement session around Rittenhouse Square.

The two have been together for 13 years, meeting while working together at the Sports Authority in Queens.  He was a “bad boy” who smoked cigarettes and had an Abercrombie jacket.  She was smitten.

Robert was two hours late in picking her up for their first date.  He forgot her house number and knocked on every door up and down the street until he gave in and called her from a payphone at a local 7-11.

They’ve moved around a bit since then.  Angela came to Philadelphia to go to school at Penn and Robert followed and attended Temple.

Their “engagement story” is unconventional.  They had planned a vacation to Turks and Caicos.  When talking to her sister about it, her sister mentioned that the trip sounded like a honeymoon.  With that, Angela emailed Robert (it’s the easiest way to get in touch with him) and suggested they get hitched.  And so it was that they began planning a “honeymoon with a wedding tacked on”.

One of the initial plans (I.A.b.4) involved their 3 year old bulldog, Maggie.  The trip would have been a little too much for her but we’ll be seeing her at their wedding later this month in New York!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Northern Liberties | Angela + Davide
Engagement sessions that are quirky and tie in a couple’s favorite things are THE BEST! I was 100% game when Angela and Davide posed the idea of doing their session in a coffee shop both sipping drinks and getting all barista-y in there. Davide worked as a barista in Italy and is a huuuuge java fan. The day of the shoot he played the role of the espresso and Angela was the cappuccino.The folks at Café La Maude in Northern Liberties were so accommodating. It is an adorable French-inspired place that is so laid back with patrons who are obvious regulars. They were happy to let us play around inside the place so we jumped right in! Davide s ...

Philadelphia Anniversary Photographer | Old City | Vanjul + Adarsh
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 ca ...
