Kennett Square Engagement Photographer | Longwood Gardens | Andrea + John

Engagement

Here’s a story of a boy and girl who met in 6th grade at St. Norbert’s. The boy apparently told his friends that he would marry the girl. The boy and girl began dating their senior year of high school. They’ve been together 8 years now and will be getting married this May at that same grade school where they met and where he first proposed to her (more on that later).

Andrea and John are delightful. They’re so easy going and so in sync with each other (what a surprise, right?). He calls her Toots (which I love) and she calls him Peanut (which he doesn’t love). Their first date was to see Big Fish and then dinner at Maggianos with a few other people.  They eat Chinese food, play with their pup, go to Limoncello every year on their anniversary, and bask in being in love.

Most people who choose Longwood Gardens for their engagement session do so because it’s such a beautiful place. We actually had an extra reason. John, an arborist, has taken classes there and was able to show us around and take us to parts of the gardens I had never seen. Pretty awesome.

The day was beautiful but fairly chilly so we moved inside to warm up.

Andrea has this amazing laugh that crinkles her nose. I adore it and can’t wait to catch it more at the wedding!

John initially proposed to Andrea at their grade school a few years ago. They decided to hold off a while and Andrea was given the responsibility of doing the next proposal. She kept the ring (occasionally trying it on) and popped the question on Christmas day the year before last. John said yes. Check out this stunner.

We journeyed outside again to some of the far reaches of Longwood Gardens. Unfortunately the fountains hadn’t yet been turned on but we did see some fabulous trees.

Andrea and John, thanks so much for showing me around. Can’t wait to see you both so soon where it all began!

In the midst of this frozen weather, it’s nice to think back just a few short weeks ago to Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session on an unusually mild Philly fall day. The two met at a Hanukkah party and hit it off. On their first date at Devon, Sanjay brought her a red rose though Sheila worried he wasn’t interested since he didn’t make a move at the end of the night. Lucky for us all, he was just being gentlemanly.We took pictures around their home in Queen Village along the waterfront.Sanjay says that he knew by the second date that she was the one. Her compassion was obvious and attractive. Their compatibility was undeniable.The two ...
