Triana + Ankur: Engagement session at Longwood Gardens

Engagement

It’s adorably classic: they lived in the same dorm freshman year at Rutgers and they’ve been together ever since. That was over 8 years ago and they’ll be having their wedding at Philadelphia City Hall next month.

The two just seem so comfortable and happy with each other. They take walks along the Schuykill together. They’re huge movie buffs. They happen to be really into wizards and vampires (Triana is Team Edward, by the way, though she’s no fan of RPatz). She has a kindle so she can bear that goofy grin on the train without anyone really knowing it’s due to teen romances. (And I admit, I totally geeked out on this too!)

We met at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square the other week for their engagement pictures. The place was in full springtime bloom. We strolled through the conservatory for a little while.

The weather was just right for us to be outside. There were people wandering around the grounds but we were able to find a lot of places to ourselves.

We hit a glorious patch of cherry blossoms and forsythia. If this doesn’t say spring, I don’t know what does!

Triana had only one request: daffodils!

And how could you not fall in love with a sea of purple flowers?!

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for their intimate wedding in May. You won’t want to miss these two! Triana and Ankur, see you soon!

I’m here, and I love you. I have always loved you, and I will always love you. I was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that I was away.
