From the moment I met Susannah, she had a glow about her. She had a warm, inviting spirit that was just full of love. After meeting Lukas at their engagement session, I understand why. These two have a bond that I have never seen before. After we shot their engagement session, I left feeling inspired and just happy. Lukas is from Switzerland, and resided there their entire relationship, to it was long distance…. Very long. Whenever they get a chance to see eachother in person, it is like aflame you cannot put out. They are so naturally in tune and in love with each other that there was no need for me to tell them to do anything because it was so candidly natural. With it being such a long distance relationship, him being in Switzerland, and her here in the US, I was curious to know how they met. These were her words…

      “We met in Nassau, the Bahamas 7 years ago in 2011. We were there for a 4 weeks mission trip to help with Vacation Bible Schools and youth camps. I had been there the year previously and returned for my second summer, it was Lukas first visit. We both continued to return for the same mission work for the next 6 summers and over those 6 summers we fell in love with the country, culture and people all while forming a strong friendship with each other. For a very long time we never considered each other a “possibility” but very gradually interest began to grow. It took spending 6 summers together and then much prayer before we decided to move into a relationship but once we did we both knew this was it and we were engaged 3 months later!” 

      Congrats Susannah and Lukas, Enjoy your new life in Switzerland!
