“Gideon isn’t a romantic person. He’s not someone who likes to give me surprises or speak sweet words to me. He’s not about flowers, romantic dinners or unexpected gifts. He’s usually pretty predictable, and that's where our similarity lies.
That morning, all I knew was that we were going to have a casual photo session with SweetEscape. All I knew was that SweetEscape was in touch with me, and only me, because a friend of mine had told them to contact me for a “casual photo session”. All I knew was that the SweetEscape team didn’t even know Gideon. In fact, I even gave them his contact because he reached the shoot location before I did. All I knew that Gideon was feeling nervous that morning because, unlike me, he’s not that comfortable to be in front of the camera. But what I didn’t know was that Gideon was already in touch with the SweetEscape team long before they even contacted me, had meetings with them months ago, and prepared for this day.
In the middle of our photo session, he suddenly called out to me from behind. He was on his knees, holding a ring box, saying some sweet sentences, before popping the question, “Abigail Amanda Roberta Zevannya, will you marry me?”
I stood there speechless for a few seconds. I felt like the open space became narrow, limiting itself to the very ground we were on. Time stood still. I smiled from ear to ear before saying, “Yes, of course I will!” Telling you this still gives me goosebumps and it makes the butterflies in my stomach flutter.
Thank you, SweetEscape, for capturing this moment so beautifully!” - Amanda Zevannya
