It was mid-February when we received Sebastian’s email, and the second we read it we were in. Sebastian wanted to propose to his girlfriend Sylvia, and asked us to photograph the surprise.
On the day of the proposal at Longwood Gardens we hide away patiently, waiting to see the couple turn the corner and Sebastian down on one knee!
Luckily, Longwood Gardens was holding their Orchid Extravaganza—the entire conservatory featured more than 4,500 beautiful orchids of all colors—so it wasn’t too hard to stay out of sight.
Sylvia was so surprised because she was under the impression they were just in Philadelphia for the weekend to go site seeing. We even had a group of women passing by that caught the proposal and congratulated the newly engaged couple. By then…we were all crying! After, we wandered around the beautiful grounds finding the perfect spots to capture their engagement photos.
Sebastian and Sylvia were so much fun! We clicked right from the start and couldn’t help but feel the incredible amount of love these two share.
Congratulations Sebastian and Sylvia!
