how they asked (by photographer Anna): It all started when Svenja asked me to take portraits of her and her boyfriend. She warned me already before that Tom was special and that he was tattooed all over his body. But of course I didn’t mind. So on June 24th we went to the Binnenalster in Hamburg. We took some casual photos of the two kissing and hugging with their dogs. After an outfit change we went to a different spot under the romantic Lombardbrücke, when suddenly Tom pulled a ring out of his pocket and proposed to Svenja.
I had no idea as their photographer, that he had these plans, neither did Svenja. So Tom wanted to take the chance to get beautiful portraits of his proposal for Svenja. I was totally surprised but happy for the two of course.
how they asked (by Svenja): I thought we were just going to take some photos..we love to be in front of the camera. So we planned a matching casual outfit and another one more elegant, just us and our dogs in family portraits. I had a real good time and I would’ve never expected it to come. I was so confused when Tom got down on one knee, I was still overwhelmed a few days later. It was perfect day. Every time I touch the ring, I have to think of his eyes when he asked..
