I was so excited when Angela and Rangan suggested an early morning Old City Philadelphia-themed shoot for their engagement session! There’s something about the way the soft morning light hits the cobblestones and brick that makes me feel like I’m in another time and place.
Angela and Rangan met in 2017 on a trip to Atlantic City with friends. Even though Angela wasn’t sure she wanted to go on the trip, the two met and hit it off immediately. In January of 2020, Angela was pulled away from work to go on a scavenger hunt across Williamsburg, NY where their first date had taken place. Rangan left notes at each spot they visited on their first date, and proposed at the end! So freaking sweet!
Unfortunately, their wedding timeline was disrupted when Covid hit a few months later. Angela and Rangan decided to tie the knot two years later in January of 2022 in a cozy and intimate art gallery in Manayunk. I am soooo excited to photograph their wedding as my first for the new year!
Angela and Rangan are such a sweet, kind couple. I had so much fun running all over Old City with them for their fall engagement session. We started at the Merchant Exchange Building near the Museum of the American Revolution, but had to quickly move when the sun kept coming out from behind a cloud and hitting the building! I knew I wanted to get this specific shot of the building, so we ended up walking all the way back after shooting at Elfreth’s Alley to make sure we nailed it. It was definitely worth it – it’s easily one of my new favorites.
Thank you Angela and Rangan for choosing me to document such a special time in your life. I am so excited for your wedding this winter and wish you both a lifetime of happiness! ♥️
