Chester County Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Sandy + Yohanes
I am always inspired by couples who have been together for years and years. They must know each other so well, every idiosyncrasy and every eyelash. Sandy and Yohanes have been together for 7 years. They met at church when she arrived as a new member. He asked for her phone number a few weeks later.
For the longest time I felt like this engagement session was a fantasy. We were supposed to do it last October at the Jersey shore. If you remember, there was a bit of bad weather that completely halted our plans. And then Yohanes had a bug bite on his chin that lasted two months. I was wondering if I would ever actually meet these mysterious two.
On a very windy day in April it finally came together at Longwood Gardens.
I love Sandy’s split-second faces!
He popped the question last year when he picked her up from work one day. She notes that he didn’t get down on one knee (a little hard in a car). The official proposal came this January when his family was invited to her family’s house.
Yohanes is a sushi chef. They love cooking together and get quite outdoorsy going camping and fishing. She is a biologist studying RNA.
Sandy and Yohanes wanted to try this shot and you have no idea how long it took the three of us to figure out how to make it work.
After her sister’s wedding this year, Sandy and Yohanes will be married in 2014 in Indonesia, where their families are from. Congratulations, you two! Happy wishes for the next seven years and many, many more after that!
