Love Affair... with my Photographer!

- by Brittiny

Have you ever seen a photo so striking that it brought tears to your eyes? For me, my tears came looking at the work of the phenomenal, great and funny Fola Adewole. I saw her work and blinked to hold back the welling emotion. I remember the very first shot I saw, a great and sassy couple on rocks at a beach, she was wearing a gorgeous blue bathing suit, he a cool pair of shorts and they were holding their initials, JB. I thought "WOW. What a cool shot. I love that, I wish I could have a photographer like that whenever I am married (insert sigh)". I then shrugged it off, no more daydreaming, I'm not yet engaged, but my clients were, I thought to myself.

I then emailed Fola asking if she traveled. I was astonished by her prompt response, her enthusiasm and her prices! I was very happy thinking to myself "Well, at least if one of my clients book her I can use her work for my own portfolio". Little did I know that six months later I would be able to book her for my very own wedding!!! I have a love affair with her artistry, her persona and her talent. To say I cannot wait to see what my pictures look like is an understatement. I honestly hope that my wedding lives up to her talent. For me Fola captures the essence of people, I feel as if I have been given a glimpse into someone's most intimate moments and yes ladies, she is booked, she is mine!!!!!

Now, let's see if you get the same emotion that I received from her pictures...

Truly felt. The second and third made me think (instantly) of my fun and intimate love with my husband.

Thank you for sharing.

@lynn: isn't she phenomenal?! I cannot wait to see how she captures our day!!

@smell goods: how sweet is that?! I think the first photo that made me lover her was in July of 09 and it was a great picture of a couple on the beach and for me it stuck out as a wow. I love that picture, but honestly she has a slideshow that goes through her weddings and the slideshow left me in tears. I <3 Fola lol!!!!
